    Definitely check with the hunt secretary before you do anything drastic to your nice helmet. My bow points down, too, but our local hunt kindly assured me not to worry about it!

    I would...

    I think this is a little easier than Misty. "My Pony" by Susan Jeffers is really sweet, easier but still age-appropriate, and the illustrations are just gorgeous. I loved Thelwells when I was that...

    I'm not very motivated to leave the baby for anything lacking four hooves and a tail!

    Mr. Baby loves it when I get out the yoga mat. He cracks up copying "scissors/helicopter" and of course "happy baby" but before long climbs me like a jungle gym, gnaws on my mat, and steals my...

    Your first round was quite good! I liked that pace a lot. The second round had some nice moments, but it looked like you both got a bit rattled with a little "oops" at the first fence and never...

    Riding Lessons vs. Gym Membership

    I was kind of beating myself up this morning on my way to the barn. I am still pretty flabby from having Mr. Baby 11 months ago, and I miss my former fitness. "A gym membership," I told myself,...
  6. It doesn't have to be one or the other...

    I really don't see why you can't both take some classes and work with horses. Lots of people work full-time and take classes! Some of them probably even work with horses.

    There are so many...

    Color is certainly not a detractor, as long as the horse can jump/move.

    For example, I have certainly seen these faaaaaancy pinto warmbloods clean up:

    I loved the British announcer! Equestrian sports have a much better following with the general public in Britain; it's probably much easier to find a knowledgeable horse person AND announcer in one...

    I always see distances from 4 out. Not 5, not 3, but 4. Poles, 3'6" oxers, and everything inbetween!

    The hardest thing is not seeing a distance, in which case I keep my leg softly supportive,...

    It is tempting to bring the LO to the barn with you, and if you just want bb to see the horses, maybe pet a trusted equine's shoulder, and go home, that would work. But I do not bring my LO to the...

    LOL, baby mischief :)

    I have also just gone back to riding. My son is almost 10 mos. He stays with Daddy and/or Grandma and has a BLAST!

    I wish he were big enough for daycare, but most of...

    I wouldn't necessarily say no... but I would change the conversation a bit.

    "Suzy, wouldn't it be fun if we went on a trail ride/took a lesson together? Trainer said you could ride horsey!"

    There was a nice little spread on her Gucci duds in vogue a while back. There was a great photo where her ponytail and her stallions tail were bouncing in exactly the same way.

    whats wrong with this picture?

    You bathe the horse, scrub his white sock, clean your tack, polish your boots, braid, opt for a hunt coat... All so you will look nice in pictures...

    The thing about starting a business, ANY business, is that you cant expect to turn a profit until your 4th year, and even then, especially in the horse business, don't expect the money to be anything...

    I just had my first "colt" 10 weeks ago, and only got back in the saddle this weekend. I found pregnancy and postpartum recovery very uncomfortable, especially "on top". I am still nursing, which...

    I would also say 15k or less, mostly because of your location... unless you're in boca raton or something. There are plenty of nice horses in FL that can be bought for a song. I would think...

    This makes sense to me. I am a "feeler" -- I do not think in words or pictures while I am riding. Talking and listening while I am riding are terribly distracting while I am feeling something out! ...

    The best stall door setup I have ever used is where every other door is on the right and every other door is on the left. This makes it possible to clean 4 stalls (in a center aisle barn) without...

    I don't think that managing a barn is any less professional than working in a restaurant, as far as your resume goes. At least you will be a manager, have some responsibility for staffing, clients,...

    I have an equestrian blog (among others), but I don't write about my own riding on it. I have an extensive blogroll, though, and my favorites to read are "I is Roxie" and "The Jumping Percheron"
