You need to start being more careful with what you post. NO educated event rider would take an crazy horse on course.
She didn't know he was crazy. And she wasn't an eventer.
Those horses are trained very carefully to jump the heights they do, which FYI are not 6 ft, maybe four at most (1.2m anyway). They are brought through the lower levels and TRAINED to do what they do.

Now I admit I havent competed up to 3 star, and Im not some great knowledgable event rider, but I have schooled up to 1 star, and I CAN tell you that even at the lower levels those fences demand respect and absolute trust in your horse, as well as a great deal of skill from both horse and rider. You can't just gallop blindly and expect a favorable outcome. And you can't just hop on any old horse and have them clear these obsticals.

The statement you made was uneducated, and insulting to people who partake in the sport and put a great deal of effort into finding a suitable horse and then training it.
Well I find the people who slam their horses into jumps insulting. I think cross country courses are cruel that's y the united kingdom is making them so that the will move. I'm sorry but ALOT of event horses are crazy. Not saying yours or anybody's else is. I'm saying that alot of event horses are put under lot of pressure they can't live up to.
Doesn't anybody remeber the people last year who lost their lives on the cross country course. Ya'll know the FEI are looking into this right?

Wow, off topic or what...

Brooke, I think the jump wing posted that was a wooden rail with a wooden cross base at the bottom would probably be the simplest and most cost effective option for making them yourselves. One thing, decide if you want to buy cups (the things the poles rest on) or you want to make your own. You will need to know what type/size cups you will be using before you drill the holes.

I agree no more of picking on each other. Especially each other's trainers that is off limits.

I'm sorry, but I've read many of your recent posts, and you seem to be bringing this on yourself.
Sorry about getting OT but I couldn't help myself.

I think you need to educate yourself on the world of eventing and how things are done. You also need to re-educate yourself on the horses.

For you to say allot of Event horses are insane - you are way out in left field. And the reason why there were so many accidents is because of the Short Format.

Get educated before you generalize my sport.
