  1. Another place to look is at www.tacktrader.com. Use their advanced search and type in carts. They had quite a few different ones for different size horses.
  2. Saddleseat question ?

    With a bit of training I bet your horse could go classic pleasure which is saddleseat. Why would you want to ride saddleseat if not for showing? Just to use a cutback saddle? Very pretty horse by the way.
  3. Want to stick out? Try holding romal reins in your right hand instead of your left like righties do. LOL Remember the reason we all get on our horses from the left side. Because your sword was carried on your right side. A lot of good that would do me since I wouldn't have the strength or coordination to fight using my right hand. Standard cars and all cars in general are made for right handed people. I guess in Britian they would be made for left handed people since they drive on the opposite side of the road and the steering wheel is on the opposite side of the car. Ever try to use a calculator in a business class? The ones that have paper that comes out of them. They only make them for righties. Computer keyboards have the calculator on the right hand side never the left. Window blinds usually have the pull cord on the right hand side. At least when I hold a cup with a picture on it I get to see the picture no one else because the pictures are printed on the side of the cup that a right handed person would have showing out. There are a ton of things that are made for righties. [ 09-13-2007, 02:55 PM: Message edited by: baymorgan ]
  4. Should lead line classes have different "placing"?

    I have been to shows where they have been judged and to shows where they all get first place or the same type of ribbon. Trust me giving them all first place is the best because one little girl started crying because she wanted the purple ribbon and she had got the blue one. Kids six and under do not care about placing, probably don't even understand what it is all about. They enjoy it and that's that. It seems that judging lead line classes is more prevalent in the States.
  5. Morbidly obese

    quote: Originally posted by chele: As to the question, yes, I DO think morbidly obese people should pay for two seats. The airlines make their money by head count and also must monitor their total weight. A morbidly person typically takes up two seats, so why should an airline lose money on that passenger? The airline does not lose money on that passenger. My co-worker and I were flying to LA and we had to share a seat with an obese person. That person took up their seat and my friends seat and we had to share my seat, squashed up against each other. They had to go get the seat belt extender for the passenger and they could still only do it up around their knees. Needless to say it was a very uncomfortable trip for my co-worker and I. Unfortunately it was a packed plane so it wasn't like this person could have two seats. I know it would be against the law asking for your weight when buying an airline ticket but I think it should be allowed so that our experience doesn't happen. I mean we paid for our ticket also and should expect to be able to enjoy our whole seat.
  6. Riding Pictures and Videos...Finally!

    You look good. You have the body shape that looks really good in saddleseat equitation. Tall and slim! Lucky you!
  7. I'm left handed and I think we should be compensated for all the discrimination against us in the old days where we were forced to use our right hands because of religious groups thinking we were devils. What about safety problems because we are forced to use right handed tools? Maybe companies should be forced to make two models of everything. Why can't we use our left hand for swearing in ceremonies why does it have to be our right? Wouldn't it have more meaning to us? I know what you mean though by things going way too far in order to be politically correct.
  8. showmanship with saddleseat horse

    Headlight looks good in the videos I see of him!! No shuffly QH in his movement. It is 1947 miles from here to State Fair Grounds in Oklahoma City or there abouts. She can't drive straight through because of the horses so she has to make stops. It took her just about three days last time and she likes to have the horses settled and adjusted to their stalls for a few days before the show. And plus you have to leave time for problems you may incur along the way, possible bad weather like a freak snow storm, (which they are saying we will have our first snow before the end of September), etc. We are flying down on the 4th. Gives Liselle and Edie time to get their horses into both arenas and get them use to everything before their first classes.
  9. showmanship with saddleseat horse

    Sounds great!! Poor Chance I don't think he knows what hit him. His training has been intensified. We had the vet out because he was having problems after the last show with picking up his lead from the walk to the canter. He wasn't picking up the wrong lead just having problems getting into the canter. The vet said that he needed to build his stifles and back end up more so he has to do trotting poles set about a foot and a half high and go on straight easy trots. So we have been going over to the barn almost every night to put him through his paces. The show is coming so fast. It seemed like we had a lot of time but it is creeping closer and closer. Karen is leaving with the horses on the 28th.
  10. Trainers near Edmonton

    Try phoning Skorrybrook Farms in Leduc. I don't know if she trains or not but I know it is a jumping place. This one was listed in equine edmonton. http://www.equineedmonton.com/equine-direc...try.php?id=5756 You may also try Duke ranches. I know they do jumping lessons but not sure about horse training. Hope this gives you some direction.

  12. Coggins Survey

    I just paid $50.00 for a coggins plus mileage. I am not sure I really believe in the validity of a coggins because how do I know my horse didn't become infected two hours after the blood was drawn. We had to have it done because we are travelling across the border with the horses. We don't need coggins done here to go to horse shows locally. I am not sure about crossing provincial borders.
  13. Things you couldn't live without at a show

    probably the thing you are going to need most to bring is your sense of humor. LOL I just found the neatest things. A lady at the barn owns an RV dealer ship. She sells these wipes. They are compressed to the size of a peppermint and when you put them in water they expand and you have a great little face wipe. No perfumes or anything in them. We took them to the last show. You put a bunch in your pocket and when you need them you just use them. All it needs is a bit of water and we are always carrying a bottle of water to drink so no problem. No more carrying around big buckets, wipes etc.

  15. showmanship with saddleseat horse

    Her first class is Saturday morning in show Arena 6 - 307 GN Saddleseat Classic Eq. 14-17. Her next class is Saturday afternoon in Show Arena 6 - 313 GN Fittings and showmanship 14 - 17. Her next class is Tuesday Evening in the Coliseum 121 - GN Classic Pleasure Saddle Jr. Ex. 14 & 15 Depending on how she does in those classes she may get to go on to the WC's. You are showing Headlite hunter and western? Well we definately will be there to see you since there are no conflicting classes! I just realized Liselle has an evening class. Probably everyone will be dressed in formal. Oh well it is one way to stick out by not being dressed in formal wear.
