    Since owner has tipped you off to horse going to a show it seems she hasn't given up on the deal. Try to ride him at the show and maybe arrange a PPE. Be sure to have cash and a trailer (preferably...

    I'm not a judge but I'd guess that it's somewhat discretionary. Clearly the judge wanted to reward the smoothness of the trip, good lead changes etc and the 8 nice jumps and being as it was a...

    Bustin Stones has had several ... ahem ... suggestively named foals. Bustin Stones was (is) owned by a friend of mine who is in the sand and gravel business. I'm sure he argued that the name referred...

    I have hard terms like "cocktail" used and since the kid probably had no idea what was in the shot, she probably wouldn't have used pharmaceutical name so "relaxation shot" seems plausible.

    Last May I visited Xctrygirl in SePa and had a frustrating lesson on her "old pro" on Thursday. The next day I had a great lesson on her young up and comer. On the schedule for Sunday was the...

    But, JT isn't just any USEF member, he's a ranking official at a major competition.

    Good for you! Having had a nearly new Beval stolen a few years ago (never recovered) I am happy that someone's theft story may have a happy ending.

    When someone takes the job of judging a competition (with the expectation of being paid for the job) they are effectively lending tacit approval the event. As a high ranking participant in the...

    I have argued for years that the JC can and should recognize the status "retired." The status goes with him and any future owner who presents papers for racing will thus be denied entry.

    The question reminds me of the old quip "Nobody goes there any more, it's too crowded!"

    From what I have seen, the huge classes are typically in the lower levels where you get a blend of riders...

    HITS takes a bunch of bashing and much of it is deserved, but what are the options? Vermont runs early July to almost mid August. From Albany, I can get to HITS a bit faster mainly highway miles....

    If I fall and bust myself up, the texting trainer is not the cause but if the jumps sucked I want her to be able to tell me why.

    Constant, instant access is a curse and a blessing. In an...

    If she stood for 3 years before you got her, what she probably needs is to be fitter and better balanced. Each of the riders appeared to be riding off their hands not legs. Now, when you have a quick...

    I didn't see the horse getting strong in the sense of going too fast but strong, in leaning on her, which he alternated with coming a bit above the bit. He's green and needs time and miles. He has a...

    My first instinct is to say that sinking closer to the saddle, especially in jumpers is not unusual and often useful. It helps set you up for a turn after the jump or might keep you closer to the...

    Adding to meup's comments, I'd add that the best thing a rider (pro or ammy)can do is make every attempt to ADD VALUE. I have long held that by making a horse good at something - a show horse, trail...

    These horses have owners who are (or should be) responsible for them. If they sell them to a step down position, they no longer are responsible and the NEW owner is. They might sell him too.

    At the highest levels of the EQ (where, apart from ponies most of the leasing takes place) most of the horses are well set up for retirement. They are managed to the teeth by BNTs and when the rigors...

    I'd posit that many old show horses would rather be used teaching children how to ride like meup's old horse, than to go from a lifetime of showing to being a pasture puff.

    When he stops going prelim he will probably plump up. :)

    I love Simon. He looks like a joy to ride. Even in the cc video, he showed immaculate jumping form.

    I agree with meup.

    First, I didn't read the EQ article, is it linked someplace? Is it in the Children's issue, which is in my "to be read pile?"
