Currently it's too wet to do anything but ride up the road, so we do 3-5km worth every second day or so. I won't ride in the rain though cos getting wet isn't fun for anyone Laughing I only do dressage so it's not a huge deal for me if I don't have a paddock to work in.

Lulu, that isn't right.


The 6 yo tests are ridden in a snaffle.

The pony tests does not have flying changes in it.

The 6yo pony test and the 6yo horse test are different!

The young horse class qualifiers for DWTS (in March) don't start until August at the earliest. The last one is in early Feb usually.

I've done this myself for a few years now, and most info in on the EV website. Please don't be misguided.

Sorry. I wrote that badly. I meant the judges were looking for the same thing in the horses and the ponies. Comic is right, the rules are slightly different for horses and ponies in young horse/pony classes

Yes, the judges are looking for a horse/pony that has been trained along the Gernan Training scale. Forward, loose, cadenced, supple, obedient probably in that order lol.

The 6yo pony test has collected medium and extended trot and canter, half pass in trot, walk pirouette, rein back, counter canter and simple changes.Smile

Isn't the horse/pony's age taken as of the 1st of August? So if the pony is still 5 on the 1st of August (turning 6yo late August), it is eligible for the 5yo pony class?

Taken from the date of that year.

For 2016, if the horse/pony is 6 at 1st August 2016 (and the one in question would be), they are classified as a 6year old for all of that year.


They don't tend to have YH/YP classes at this time of year.

I took the OP meaning that she wanted to compete said pony for later this year for qualifying for DWTS 2016. Meaning the pony could compete in the 5yo class for the coming 2015/2016 season i.e. prior to August 2016, after which it would be in the 6yo class. So this pony has 2 seasons of young pony classes left?

The forum drove me to drink. Remind me to thank it.
Alchy is growing up lovely and I'm very happy with him. Starting to treat him less like a baby now and though we still handle him with kid gloves a bit because he has separation anxiety bad enough to tie him up Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad but asking a lot more of him in his work when he is relaxed in his surroundings Smile

He is a wonderful, sensitive, rideable young horse his only frustrating trait is a tendency to tuck his nose way too far in and under, and to get a bit sticky and 'climb' rather than travel forward if I check him too often - he can get his knees past his nose in trot and canter if he thinks he wants to go faster Sad Lots of lessons and long, low, relaxing rides with other horses are helping!

Both my horses are in very light work at the moment due to work commitments Sad

My WB is now going on a long overdue spell for a month or so & will be brought back in slowly as we get more light in the evenings. As a result, my constitutionally downhill TB has stepped up to the plate.

He’s a great horse to ride & doesn’t need to be in full work to stay sane & safe. We were level assessed on the weekend & I’ve entered Doongala dressage day in a few weeks time.

He isn’t the most impressive horse but he is consistent and reliable & while work is stressing me out he is just what the doctor ordered Very Happy

I have a beautiful tailor made Aaron Park colours and logo vest in size 10, navy with gold trim - it's absolutely beautiful and I have only worn in once in a led class only, I haven't even ridden in it. It cost me $85.00, will sell for $60 plus postage.

The saddlecloth is Eskadron and the Aaron Park logo is in gold and there are already black velcros professionally stitched on for competition numbers. This saddlecloth has NEVER been used.
In total with the logo and velcro this cost me $80, will sell for $60 plus postage.

Local pick up can be arranged from Clayton during business hours or possibly somewhere around Pakenham on weekends providing I have time.

Happy to message photos, please PM me with your mobile details or email.

We are searching for a quality pony youngster for a client. Unbroken or green broken OK. Prefer mare or gelding, will look at colts but vendor must note it will be gelded post-sale (so no stallion prospects please).

Looking for young horse to start in pony dressage. Experienced rider with excellent credentials and references. Seeking pony as a project while current horse is injured (WB gelding competing advanced).

Rider is petite, but would prefer something around the 13.1hh mark. May consider smaller if paces are clear and cadenced, larger may also be considered.

Please PM or post.

Green broken, rising 3yo gelding. Registered Part APSB, eligible Pinto and part welsh, approx. 13hh.
Kenny is nothing special to look at, but is a total sweetheart. He was started under saddle in March, and was faultless to work with, before being turned out for Winter.
He has lovely movement, and will make a wonderful kids pony with a few more miles under his belt. $1,500

index.php?t=getfile&id=615628&private=0index.php?t=getfile&id=615627&private=0For sale Captain Jack Sparrow. Jack is a 5yo Warmblood (Renegade Z), X Percheron gelding. 16.2hh. Jack is blind in his offside eye which in my opinion doesn't affect him in his ability to do all that is asked of him. I have had numerous lessons on him at the Victorian Showjumping stables with Russel Johnson. He is currently jumping 60cms comfortably and haven't pushed him and also haven't entered him in any competitions. I have competed in a 20km endurance race with Jack at Ararat and he passed the vet check stations with flying colours. We have also competed in two time trials, winning the Moorooduc saddle club open section, and have been up to the high country camping, doing lots of river crossings. He is ridden along on the trails on a loose reign and never gets hot even after a gallop up the hill. He self loads onto the float. He is fantastic for his farrier. Very easy to catch. Jack has the best nature and is such a character. He will follow you around like a puppy dog. The reason I'm selling him is because he is just too quite for me. He has only been broken in for 12 months, so although he is a kids pony, he still can be green and snort at new things. His reaction at things he shy's at is minimal. He will only be going to the best of homes and I will be making sure whoever buys him will be well suited and capable of getting the best out of him. His price is $3000. Jamie 0418132245

Snip has now come to stay with me until he is sold as his owner no longer has any time to work with him. I will be working with him daily. Today I used clippers to trim him up a bit and he didn't care, put a rug on him (bit big for him but will do until I get another one), cleaned all four feet and groomed him. Working on things around his bum cause he is a bit worried when you are behind him. Haven't noticed any nastiness at all. Still hard to catch but will work on that as well as re-start his education under saddle. If anyone wants to view him they can now contact me through here. His price is $400 currently.

I've almost doubled my salary since starting in an entry level position in a bank in Jan 2011 and the best advice I can think of is to make the lives of the people around you easier (particularly your boss!)

It's not how much you know but your attitude and willingness to learn (and who you know) that will take you places. I would much rather have someone working for me that has the right attitude than someone who has the knowledge but is difficult to manage.

Always look for things around you in your current role that can be improved on and ways that you can assist in improving them. Don't just come to your boss with a problem, come to them with a well thought out solution as well.

Hope that helps Smile

Please think about what you write before you write it, as you are potentially distressing people and making a very difficult decision MUCH harder for someone who's currently facing it.

I've been involved with euth'ing 1000s of dogs (literally) and I've never seen the situation you've described, even when a dog wasn't fully PTS with the first injection and needed more. The injection given is a very strong anaesthetic, so a less than lethal dose puts the dog into a deep sleep (it doesn't leave them choking). What is more likely the case is that the dog was already dead (or at very least completely unconscious and unaware as their heart had stopped or near stopped) but was having reflexive responses and gasps that sometimes happen after death. This is much more common in older dogs and dogs who have been chronically ill in my experience, and is distressing to watch when you don't know what is happening (so the vet SHOULD have explained the process better before leaving), but it IS NOT indicative of the dog still being conscious or suffering.
This is a long document, but page 15 has more information on what I've described above http://www.icam-coalition.org/downloads/Methods%20for%20the% 20euthanasia%20of%20dogs%20and%20cats-%20English.pdf

For anyone who lives in the greater Melbourne metro Melbourne region who is considering having their pet PTS'd at home, I'd highly recommend having a look at Dr Emma Whiston's website - she's PTS'd the dogs of several of my good friends and provides an excellent service and great owner support.
