    Ok, so 12 hands equals 15.3

    Splint boots are used to bow a tendon

    And THAT'S how to jump a fence!!

    It's all clear to me now...

    As amusing as she is to those of us who actually know what the hell we are doing, Sarah needs to be wiped from the internet. Think of the the horse crazy, trainerless little girls who may be watching her and believing that she actually knows what she is talking about. Those splint boots are scary!

    I had forgotten how totally clueless she is.

    Cantering a jump--yes, JUST like that! Don't lift out of the saddle, snatch your horse in the mouth and get left behind. Just like that.

    Oy.

    Curb Appeal - I agree, but first I must save the videos. BTW, www.savevid.com has a relatively simple way to save videos off the Internet.

    Horse-loverz - Can't thank you enough! This week had not started well yet now I have humor to get me through.

    The measuring vid link goes to the splint boot vid :-( The measuring video was one of my all time favorites. However, I had never seen the splint boot vid, and it is truly a classic. I never knew that I had been putting on splint boots wrong this whole time - and every catalog picture is wrong etc. A classic!

    Thanks for the belly laugh!

    Someone needs to send that jumping vid to George Morris. He's gonna be awful pissed when he finds out he's been doing it wrong all these years.

    I'll bet Sarah Stetner is a legend in her own mind.

    Is she the Expert Villiage Idiot?

    Okay...that's all I got for now.

    I can't access them here at work. Are you saying she actually says 15 feet three inches?? Doesn't she have a 'roughly' idea of what 15 feet is?

    Now, thinking about it, I was told that a hand was measured in the old days from thumb nuckle to the ouside of the hand 5th finger knuckle, across the back of the hand and that most 'hands' were determined to be about 4 inches which was what became the standard.

    The standard is 4 inches, not the width of your hand. I learned that by reading some book when I was about 8 years old. Probably Little Black a Pony or Misty of Chincoteague. Possibly the old horse bible "A Horse of Your Own", the biggest mistake any parent can give a girl, which describes in detail how to have your father construct a stable with a dutch door and then install a horse of your very own who loves you and releys on you and looks to you for carrots and whatnot, onto your own property in your own back yard, with a saddle and bridle hanging on the wall right next to his stall, and explains just how to care for him once he is looking out his stall door expectantly towards the house for you every morning, which you should ideally be able to view from your bedroom window, I gleaned, and which book I still have. And it is a wonder to me that these basics are lacking in Sarah Stetners, for it means that she never read such a book. But somewhere she heard the idea of a "hand" and if she did, how was it that the historical knowledge which she tries to convey was not thorough enough to include the simple fact that a hand is 4 inches? Surely she does know it! She indicates that she thinks her hand is too big!! So why make up the mathematics!!
    Airborne? Oh. Yes, he can take a joke. Once. After that, the joke's on you.

    This is about four days late. She's the perfect April Fool. Unfortunately she's not kidding. Even more unfortunately, I have no doubt that there are worse offenders.

    No- she does the "itsy bitsy spider" up the horses leg- which comes out to "12" and then says that 12 of those equals a 15'3 hand horse? lord only knows how she came up with that formula. ...she's totally winging it...

    Hope the visual helps

    Thanks for the links - had my belly laugh about measuring. Showed it to my sons when the video first came up (on Fugly?) and even though they don't know much about horses, they thought it was a hoot. Glad to know it has retained its comic value!!!

    These are timeless classics that are just as funny now as they were years ago! Anyone remember exactly how old these are?
