Ian Millar's 5 Key Positions for Effective Show Jumping I could write a book describing the correct position when riding a horse, but that is not necessary. Identifying the proper position really is this straightforward! 1. Balanced position When a rider sits on a horse there must be a straight line from the rider’s ear, through their shoulder, down to...

EquiSale Sport Horses

Dear USEF,

After reading the hot mess going on with the WEC Ocala, I’m feeling the same mood as a chestnut mare who ran out of regumate and has to flat in the ring at feeding time.
You know, ears pinned, tail swishing and ready to murder her rider...

Seriously, when is the USEF actually going to care about its members and not treat them like ATM machines with a constant “suck it up buttercup” message?

Well buttercup has had enough.
It’s one thing to have to pay: fee, after fee, after fee, to get “s... “ customer service and not get much out of our memberships, but the whole idea of being told where to show is plain ridiculous.

The mileage rule nonsense gotta go. It might have been a good thing 30 years ago, but in 2020 it's obsolete.
Shows should get entries and participants because they offer the best stabling, footing, prize money, service, and venue ... not because their great great uncle by their mother’s cousin's side bought dates when Columbus discovered America.

Let’s talk about the elephant in the room. HITS Ocala is a sub-par venue, the stabling is decrepit and borderline unsafe. Who in their right mind would feel comfortable putting their quarter million dollar Grand Prix horse in what looks like a vintage 1930s circus tent from Barnum and Bailey circus?
Don’t even get me started on the footing.
Last year we were promised improvements, so they replaced the perimeter fencing in the schooling rings from black board fencing, to some unfinished looking wood rail that is a splinter hazard.
The bungalows for people to stay on site were still unfinished after circuit.
The wash stall situation is disgusting. Half of them look like a giant mud pit so deep and gross that your horse has dirtier legs after his bath than before.
The conditions for the grooms to work in are 3rd world country worthy.

So you see USEF, I’m not a big name, I don’t have millionaire clients, I’m just another little minion, trying to make a living in this industry.

I will most likely never qualify any of my horses to any finals, indoors or any kind of prestigious championship. I could care less about points.
Because I just sell horses, and I go to shows to get videos and miles for my horses. All I do when I’m at a show is trying to explain to a fresh off the boat import with PTSD that showing in America is fun.

So when a promoter spent years to build what is going to be the most amazing show facility in the US, 2 hours from my farm- I had huge expectations. I got as excited as when it’s time to buy thin mints from the Girl Scouts. Like legit, excited.

But the USEF and their clique, ruined it all...
Prize money had to be chopped to 4 million dollars, FEI riders are being blackmailed with the rule that if they want to keep on showing at the international shows they are not allowed to compete at non USEF venues.
And the list goes on... enough is enough. Let us show wherever we want to show period. End of the discussion.

Look at me, I can’t just randomly go out and tell everybody who sells horses in my area that they are not allowed to sell horses within 60 miles from me. Same for the trainers who have clients and give lessons. They can’t just bank on a running a business based on the lack of competition from other professionals. If you want to survive, you simply have to be better than your competitors, offer a better product and/or better service.

The way I stay in business is by working extra hard, providing excellent customer service, and not just caring about the money, but actually caring about the people and the horses.

So USEF, why don’t you let the participants, the people that actually pay the bills, decide where they want to show and who they want to give their money to?

From,
A fed up Minion...

From the Plaid Horse....

"If a horse says no, you either asked the wrong question or asked the question wrong.
An average hunter course has 100 strides. Only 8 of them are jumps. Don’t sacrifice the 92 for the 8.
On approaching a fence: good riders wait until it’s time to go. Great riders go until it’s time to wait.
Don’t squat with your spurs on.
It is NEVER the horse’s fault. Yes, sometimes a horse may take advantage of a situation, but there is ALWAYS something the rider could do differently to change the situation.
Pass left hand to left hand.
You can only lie to your horse so many times before they call your bluff.
Horses do no know what they are worth. They do not know, or care, what they are capable of. They only care about the way you treat them.
Injuries and colic happen almost exclusively at 10:00 pm on a Saturday.
Shoes get lost almost exclusively when preparing to leave for a show.
If you work hard, try your best, and never give up, your efforts will not go unnoticed. And you will be rewarded with opportunities when you least expect it.
If you work hard, try your best, and never give up, you will still fail sometimes.
Video doesn’t lie – after being told repeatedly that I was lifting my right hand before every fence, and swearing up and down that I was certainly NOT lifting my right hand before every fence… I was—in fact—lifting my right hand before every fence. Sometimes your brain lies to you. Video does not.
On being nervous going into the show ring: you’re just not that big of a deal. No one at the show is watching you close enough to know every mistake you might make, except for the judge and your trainer, and you are paying them to watch.
Be patient – there are no shortcuts. Any shortcut you may try, will actually be the long way.
Check your personal issues and emotions at the door. Your horse will know. It usually does not go well.
If your horse is in front of your leg, you have options.
We never lose. We either win or we learn.
Ride like a winner. You cannot act like flip flops and expect to be treated like Louboutins.
If you have to pick only two things to think about during a course, pace and track are the two you should choose. The rest cannot happen without pace and track.
Give yourself and your horse brain breaks. Go have fun, go hack out in the woods, go swimming bareback, read a book in the paddock, whatever. Just allow yourself time to have fun.
At home there’s no reason to jump as big as you show every time. The basics are the basics regardless of the jump height. Save your horses legs.
The horse world is very small. Remember this and don’t burn your bridges and be mindful of your words.
Clean your tack. Groom your horse. Properly. Every day. If you can control nothing else, you can control your turn out. There is no excuse to not do the minimum effort.
No matter what the problem is, the solution is almost always add more leg.
Ride the horse you have today. Not the one you had yesterday. Not the one you want to have. The horse under you at this moment is the only one that matters.
You go where you look. The human head weighs 10 pounds. Unless you would like to end up on the ground, do not look down.
Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard. " - advice excerpts from the Plaid Horse
