    Where is the one in which he mentions Xenophen Press by name?
    It's still on the bottom of the press release page of his website, if you want to grab a screenie.

    You know, I have a friend who tends to turn everything into a much bigger deal than it actually was. Like, a guy says hello to her in the hallway, she talks for days about if he's interested or not, decides he is, then goes on about how she is much too good for him.

    I can see said friend above contacting a well known farm (she doesn't ride, but go with it) about a job, to receive a polite and diplomatic response of "we enjoyed your photos, but we can only hire people after seeing them ride in person, to best decide if they are suitable for our program" only to turn that into "guys! they want me to fly to sweden and ride for them!"
    "smile a lot can let us ride happy,it is good thing"

    It makes me feel dirty that he refers to himself as "The Master"

    BUT...is he master of his domain?

    What's up with this Non-Warmblood stuff too. Is there really a whole new training method for those who do not ride warmbloods? Maybe that's what I have been doing wrong the whole time! I have been riding my Thoroughbreds and Appies and like Warmbloods and have yet to learn how to passage! Silly me.

    Also, for those who shared your names and pics...he is threatening to share our photos on his FB page. THAT will be interesting.

    " considering" is not the same as "offered" and might just be a polite way of declining.

    So it would be more interesting if they have never heard of him or 'considered' him for any job.
    They have never heard of him...

    He'll only serve to emphasize how limited his own skills are.

    Also, his newest post would belie the fact that he doesn't even have a solid grasp of basic horse care...

    Big storm headed our way!! Going to be 7 degrees tonight in the suburbs. Make sure your horses are warm enough, blanket them alot, and when you think you put to many on, put another blanket on!!

    Well according to post 316, and the email from Van Olst, they never heard of him....

    "Just heard back from Van Olst! Looks like our master was never even offered a position.

    We never even heard about that name , sorry .

    Thanks for letting us know ,


    Met vriendelijke groet - With kind regards - Mit Freundlichen Grüßen,

    Gertjan van Olst"

    All I'll say is that the sweet, tolerant Appy deserves a trophy. And perhaps sainthood. I'm pretty sure if I tried riding my TB mare like that, we'd be doing some Airs, too! (Sadly, hers have been limited to caprioles in-hand while we were handwalking after surgery )

    Oh, and I'm pretty sure I've been "serverd" at work before. It's pretty unpleasant when the whole thing goes to the blue screen of death on you at a key moment.

    Is someone going to audit the PA (or is it NJ?) clinic? I forget if it's January or February. I'm in for $20 towards the auditing, if the person will take video.

    The clinic being discussed was in NJ on 2/23. It does not seem clear to me that the clinic will actually be going forward now.
