    I'm also confused. I was sure that 18 was the last FEI eligible year. I was just at Spruce for Summer Series and talked with some people who are pretty in the know who were lamenting that it would be...

    Thanks for all the advice! I don't have suuuper fine hair, but it's certainly not coarse. It is quite long and all one length - I dye it blonde but it's naturally brunette, so having dark roots also...
  3. My hair hit puberty 10 years ago...and never left

    Exactly as the title says. When I hit my early teens, I experienced the typical stuff that comes along with puberty, including a new-found grease that seemed to seep from my scalp if I didn't wash my...

    Agreed with the above. To me, a horse that jumps hard really pats the ground in front - i.e., sets itself up very sharply and launches itself off the ground quickly and with great force. They can...

    When you say "big leagues", how big are you talking? Because I'm pretty sure that pony is never going to jump a grand prix.

    Be very careful in circling through the middle if there are jumps in the ring. I always try to make a mental note of which horse/rider combination belongs to which trainer/groom on the ground, so I...

    I did the equitation with cheese grater stirrup pads, penalty-free. The trick is to get a set of pliers and really meld them into the Fillis iron once you pop them in. It stops the clanging noise...

    Pretty sure you can't haul in. They own a good part of that land around there, and it's bordered by a highway on one side, a housing development on the other. It's not exactly the same feel as...

    I do PR for a non-profit air ambulance organization by day, and cover the Edmonton Oilers for a couple different online publications by night (aka - whenever I can find a spare moment). :)

    Eh. I actually prefer an oxer to start on as well. I always crawl to a vertical if it's jump one, but an oxer forces me to get going early. I also don't agree that the first fence should always be...

    1" flat ended spurs with leather straps because I have short legs and an inherently lazy horse that I encourage to jump higher than she'd probably like to if she was able to choose.

    I have ridden at the same barn for 18 years and have never been allowed to jump outside of lessons. It's a safety/liability thing, and to be honest, there's not much that you can learn jumping...

    Without any further knowledge of you, might I suggest an older Bruno Delgrange PJ Original. Great saddle, great quality, known to fit a ton of different horse shapes, most definitely "cushy".
