    What is your natural anatomical position, standing? It sounds as if you have a posterior tilt to your pelvis (do you tend to have a chair seat?) which, if you do, will take work to improve, but I am...

    I love you so much! Come stay with me if you need a break, or if you want to spend a weekend being strategic. Having known you for nearly 10 years, and having watched you ride for at least that many...

    I do like the idea of dowels placed into the outside of the standard (drilled at an angle) at the height interval, and would use chain instead of rope, which has a tendency to stretch.

    Also, I finally go the page to load. How is the pin/bolt any different than a regular jump cup? Girl! I know things happen, but if you're worried about running up on the pins on the backside of a...

    A to the Men.

    I would much rather impale on steel instead of plastic (or any other material prone to splintering).

    I have amassed all kinds of body clippers over the past 20 years. I actually prefer different clippers for different horses, but the clippers I've enjoyed using most recently are the Lister Legend.
  7. Ulcers

    I could definitely see (and have seen) a horse with ulcers having a mild, rapidly-resolved gassy moment. In my case it was my own horse, pre-ulcer diagnosis, and not at a competition. Show jumpers...

    That is very much a slap in your face. I would counter with what you feel is a project cost, then decline if they don't want to pay it. I sense through your message (and maybe I'm off base) that you...

    I probably had 2 too many Pimm's Cups with Fairweather on XC day at Burghley, so of course I washed them down with at least 2 pints, then did the Peterborough>Tube>Gatwick Express in my Dubarry's...

    I've only been to Burghley, which I can highly recommend.

    I actually was considering going to Badminton this year (for the early-in-the-year aspect mentioned!), but at Christmas a friend asked me...

    I don't say this to be cheeky, but because you have a horsey husband ... MAKE SURE HE DOESN'T GET IT ON HIS HANDS or, if he does MAKE SURE HE WASHES THEM BEFORE HE HAS TO GO PEE!
  13. Exercise Options

    A way to fix this quickly, especially with a group of beginners, is to have them put their fingers on what they'll associate as their "hip bones" (in truth, these bones are the ASIS/top of the...

    I have taken my dog (JRT) twice in the past; once when she was about 9 months old, and again in 2009, when she was 10. It was hot the last time I took her, and as I discovered, her endurance had...

    For just reason.

    Did anyone see the recent results of a study (30 year study, perhaps?) of marathon runners and the increase of plaque buildup in their arteries/cardiac systems? I found it...

    Like many, I stared at that number and thought, "This really can't be accurate. 30?" But then I did my own mental timeline and, well, you know the rest. I'm glad I was able to see his retirement...

    I don't know what type of Reformer you have, or what accessories you have with it, but I'd advise you to go with a DVD as opposed to a book.

    I was introduced to toes on the stirrup about 10 years ago by a friend/semi-trainer/clinician who learned it from George himself. I actually found it very effective in "waking up" my leg to find a...

    Many roads lead to Rome, for certain. As a horse is an unstable base of support, we condition our bodies - whether correctly or incorrectly - to establish and maintain balance on that base of...

    Re-read my original reply. I suggested proper postural diagnosis at the outset with a transition/integration back to the tack.

    Since you reference a reformer, you do invoke pilates, so I'll answer to that: everything. I would need to see your body to develop a specific repertoire for you, but essentially everything from your...

    There are tons of exercises/modalities you can explore - it doesn't have to be yoga or pilates. But I do recommend pursuing them out of the tack initially.

    Don't do anything in the tack that is going to further upset your balance and punish your horse for your deficits. You are right side dominant for a reason. Understand what that is - and how you can...
