    I think it's going to be on a 3 year rotation, east and then west. They are scouting for a "west" location now for 2016-18.

    I like the rotation, although every 2 years would be better. If you had...

    GP trained and Ammy safe? I would expect it to be at least 12+ if not 15+, and definitely more than $40K unless it had a major issue.

    My coach has a GP trained horse (shown through I2) who is not...

    I switched to the MDC stirrups years ago--prior ankle surgery and 2 torn menisci. They were significantly better.

    I have a pair of Animo white breeches that are not as hideous as the ones in the photo above--they have very little in the way of embellishment (and in fact I couldn't find them on the website...

    I had flying change anxiety. I don't mean my horse (he did too), I mean me, lol.

    What worked? Basically a little bit of everything, just like you are doing. I got the running/leaping/backed...

    Brown and black together is a great look. You could add a brown velvet collar, swap out the buttons, etc. and really update a coat. My brown coat was a longer frock style (think Pikeur Diana) and I...

    FWIW, I ride 4th level/PSG and rarely sit the trot for mediums at home.

    It's not that I can't--I sure as heck can--and it's not a "struggle" (in either definition). In fact, I find sitting the...

    When I was still doing equine practice, I removed many eyes from trauma, uveitis, glaucoma, etc.

    I'm renting an old barn that has had minimal maintenance for at least a decade. I've got a lot of it cleaned up and it looks SO much better.
