So my horse is new to the eventing phase
He was trained into basic showjumping and flat

He is a nice bold jumper when it comes to the cross country, and he tends to just runt through my hands
He is young and inexperience, but I don't want to be holding his mouth for the entire course

Are there any ideas on types of bits I could try, nothing harsh, he's currently in a snaffle and showjumps fine in it.


Thanks in advance Smile

Ahh.. I'm a bit nervous/excited. Next week I'm off to Hong Kong/UK/Europe for over a month. I have just been offered a very exciting job on my return, which I've accepted. I'm going to be unemployed while away, for the first time since I was 13 Surprised

New job was part of my 10 year plan and I never thought I'd be here already.

Managing work and horses is hard as it is... this is going to make is very difficult! Thank god for my incredibly supportive family!

R, How critical is the 1720? Can it go to 1800? If so, you can look at a single and a double next to eachother. These bins are pretty much a stock standard item. The reason we can keep the price so low is based on them fitting into the dimensions listed. Email me at sales@mpine.com.au

I was told this very thing by a judge I was pencilling for 18 months ago. A little stockhorse type horse was in the ring, and the judge was saying 'very good circle - 6' etc. It was clearly the best test we had seen so far and yet wasn't getting the marks. So I asked her, why is this horse only getting sixes, what would it have to do to get higher marks? And she said, it can't get higher marks, it would have to be a big moving warmblood to get higher marks.

So yes, there is definitely at least one judge out there with the impression that quality = big moving.

Step away from the computer,
Quality of the paces. Exactly.

Those that are looking for a high level performer aren't going to consider an average moving horse. C'mon, Valegro, Sancette or Diamintina weren't chosen by their riders just because they are very good looking horses and only had good rhythm.
Breeders goals are for athletic, rideable (hopefully) horses.

I'm not having a go at judges choosing better paces over ordinary paces provided everything else is the same. I love watching those horses ridden well.
If you want to compete in dressage that is the way it is.


I have a high horse that I regularly get on.

Step away from the computer,
Those horses you mentioned still have to have their paces DEVELOPED to improve and strengthen their natural paces JJ. They don't just 'go like that' naturally Laughing Good natural paces can also be ruined Smile

Sometimes these 'average' moving horses you are talking about can be developed into something really special further in their training.

And I'm almost certain that I heard Charlotte Dujardin say, "When people first see Valegro in the warm up as he begins they probably think that he looks like a Cob!! He trots around like a little pony. It's only when I pick him up that he looks as good as he is"

You might want to tally up though incase you have out pointed a grade and cause a riot by riding in that grade....


Ummmm I'm not sure I know what you mean by $30 fee. Confused

Have you read up on the way the system works here now?

Yes, the new name for them now is competition license. $30 per card for each horse and each discipline. Paid annually.

My fees were $325. Full competitor $295, plus renewing one dressage card.

Hi, I have been contacted by a Harness Racing Trainer who I have previously received retired Standies from. Great horses and very well cared for. This 9 yo boy is a lovely type who has just recently retired from racing. He does have a raised hip and I have been advised by those in the know that weight bearing of any kind on the gorgeous boy's back is not an option. Retraining as a riding mount is not suited 100%. He has a great nature and seeks a home where he will be well cared for and loved. I am not able to take him on as I have reached my quota of "forever" horses and therefore trying to assist the trainer in finding him a home as a companion only - no ifs or buts. I am in a position however to take him on in the very short term but I need to know that he has a permanent home in the near future. It is an urgent situation, i.e. he is being returned via Horse Transport this weekend to the Trainer - however, he would like the horse delivered straight to his new home. Please do not make comment on here as I wont be monitoring this afternoon. Genuine people only should contact me direct 0438 072763. Thanks. Vicki
