Pet Peeves

  I know I can’t be the only one with “pet peeves” about what they see in the show ring.  Most of mine are within the rules but just don’t seem right to me.  I wonder if others agree or have any thoughts.  In no particular order, but all I have seen recently in the…

an official protest

Show season is slowly winding down for those of us not headed to OKC. At one of the shows this summer, I found myself in an interesting situation and wondered how the other equine professionals of the world would have handled it. At a local class A show, my horse was showing in a novice…

Catering to the Smaller Morgan Barns

this popped up in the Horse show scheduling thread: “I also think if we want the breed to grow we need to make it friendly to the smaller barns.” and i was going to comment on it, but i figured to just start another thread on the whole topic. Doing my National entries a few…

Finally, the world of fashion is catching up with us

Skinny jeans, you may love them or hate them, but they’re certainly the new wave in fashion trends.  If you’re anything like me, you realize the the fact that their called skinny jeans does not mean they make you look skinny and they have no purpose in my wardrobe.  But, even if it’s not a…

Used Tack and Apparel

We have all been talking about the costs of showing and the effects of the economy. I was thinking that it would be helpful to get a list of some of the consignment shops we have in the states to make shopping a little less painful and horse shows a little more plausible! I am…

Lazy post of the day

What’s that they say about needing a vacation after you go on vacation?  Well, I’ve been back home for almost a week now but still have a seemingly endless list of things I need to get done.  So, instead of posting something thought provoking or interesting, I’m going to be a bit lazy. But at…

Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night…

One of my favorite sites to visit when wasting time is thereifixedit.com. I hadn’t been in awhile so I decided to catch up this morning when I came across this photo. It almost looks like saddleseat coats under that improvised shelter and it wouldn’t surprise me if a good number of you can relate.  Just…

Pricing Show Horses

I’m curious what opinions are out there as far as how to price a Morgan show horse, what a horse is worth, what you’re willing to pay for a horse? I realize in a lot of ways the answers to each of these questions is probably different. But there are a lot of things to…

You know you’re into Morgans when…

you read something about “Robbie Knievel, son of Evil Knievel” and your first thought is, “Wait a minute, I thought he was a gelding.” This just happened to me about 5 minutes ago. I might start compiling a list to post later as I think of more things. How do you know you’re into Morgans?

2010 WNY

Now that the show has wrapped up, I’m curious what folks thought of the new location and facilities for the WNY show? I know there were a fair number of folks who have participated in the past and were not able to make the trip to Buffalo this year. How was the turn-out? I remember…
