    I did not see the original comment on FB (or who might have "liked" it) so it's hard to have an opinion about whether the USEF's actions were reasonable or not.

    However, as I mentioned on the...

    I think you might want to consider getting some additional work experience before jumping into an MBA, particularly in a vertically oriented program like healthcare.

    As an aside... I personally really think that supporting your local GMO is a good idea whether you want to go for awards or not. At least in my area, the GMO does so much for members - they put on...

    You pay the $10 additional entry fee up front, along with your other entries. You incur that cost whether or not the ride ends up getting a qualifying score.

    I remember looking a that list and finding it a bit confusing as well.

    Basically, you do want to be a member of your GMO (local club) and you want to be a PM as well. So, you need a USEF, USDF...

    There is a Ledesma Equestrian Center in Orlando, FL... not sure if that is the same person or not but you could probably get at least a phone number from directory assistance, if they are still there.

    Having done both, I would say that most top big eq riders can ride circles around most first level dressage riders. First level dressage is essentially basic WTC. When the half pass was called...

    If you can try a Roosli, you might find you like them (and the leather is nice, which coming from hunterland myself, I can appreciate.) If it works for you, you can find them inexpensively on Ebay.

    Any chance she could introduce/recommend you to a pro she knows and respects?

    In the meantime, if you can manage it, I would try to video those rides.

    Well, as others have said, it's your money (and your butt in the tack) so certainly I'd say buy what you like the best. It would be interesting to know why your trainer feels so strongly about it,...

    The Del Grange is a lot more saddle (meaning more padding, more saddle between you and the horse) compared to a Butet, in my opinion. I am also pretty short with a relatively long femur, and the...
