    My SO and I did a similar road trip two Septembers ago. Not sure where you're coming from, but we flew into SLC and did a loop up through Craters of the Moon in ID, Yellowstone, Tetons, down through...

    Mine loves chewing on a pizzle/bully stick. I assume they're puppy-safe when supervised. I've done the smoked bones (from a local butcher) too, and they're fine if you keep an eye on them.

    Definitely not just a US thing. We were debating between going to Ireland and going to France last year, and checking into pricing on flights, hotels, etc pretty casually throughout a few weeks,...

    Hmm. I answered Eventing as I consider that our primary discipline, and what I have marked as our primary discipline with the USEF. But I also compete at dressage and H/J shows. Looking at what...

    :eek::eek: The movie actually made you want to read the book? Friends and I who adored the book went to see the movie, and almost walked out it was poorly adapted!

    I've usually heard the term used by dressage folks, not h/j. The horse doesn't get un-straight, per se, but out of rhythm, so the walk turns into more of a pace, or you get something like a 4-beat...

    It's GR414. If you've downloaded the whole rulebook, it's in red, and titled "Prohibited Practices." It forbids all injections within 12 hours of competing, with three vet-administered exceptions.

    I don't consider sunscreen or chapstick (which has SPF) to be "makeup." I put those on any time I leave the house for anything. Putting those on to to participate in an outdoor sport--riding!--just...

    JER, it sounds closer to bocce/petanque than actual bowling. I have no idea why anyone is unsuitable for that, especially once one has had a few drinks. Balls and drinks sounds right up most of our...

    I think most of the people I see at the barn with makeup on are wearing it because they came from somewhere like work or school. If I'm stopping at the barn on the way to/from somewhere I would wear...

    I'm just going to use it as my excuse if anyone ever invites me bowling. "No, sorry, the BBC said I should avoid it."

    My results were long- and mid-distance swimming, and judo. I actually love...

    I think I've read all her books. She's very sharp, and very funny.

    Also ditto the Margaret Atwood recommendation. If you like oddly dystopian, check out her Oryx and Crake trilogy.

    Hey now, my yucca with Christmas lights and shell ornaments resents your implications! It likes looking festive all year round. (Also, have you tried removing lights from a yucca? PITA.)

    I'm one that dislikes it. It just seems whiny and uninteresting to me. I also dislike a lot of the Big Russian Novels; the only one I've ever managed to finish was "Anna Karenina."

    I used Piedmont when my horse was boarded out that way, and was very happy with them. They've got a very nice clinic setup if you do ever need anything specific, like a lameness workup or minor...

    Well, there's the thing. Event folks cross train naturally, it's built into the sport. I think everyone at my barn who identifies as an Eventer (myself included) goes to a mix of Events and the at...

    I'm not a huge whisky drinker, but the SO is. If these guys actually sponsor an Eventer, I will certainly buy him a pair of them come the holidays!

    Just the fact that they responded at all makes...

    Like west5 and jen-s, I'm much more naturally out of the tack; that may be my hunter background coming through. I remember once being (jokingly!) threatened with a strip of tacks on the seat of my...

    Most of my jackets are RJ Classics--their Longs are actually long enough for my giant man shoulders and monkey arms. I do have one Grand Prix that is quite nice as well. They're all the older,...

    Mood will send swatches. I've ordered quite a bit from fabric.com very happily, but their selections tend to be quite seasonal.
