    I'll second the Jill Pierce recommendation.

    Really nice facility, amazingly high-quality school horses, great instruction and the easiest access from Seattle.

    Every time I get left behind it's because I've let the top of my pelvis tip back, opening my hip angle before the jump. It's a subconscious protection response that happens when I'm not focused on...

    These, definitely. I still have the 3" scar on the inside front of my calf muscle from Thermal '09. These are the only things that kept me riding that year and I always keep a pair in my tack trunk...

    Another point about the "Oh, I'd never sue"...

    Another point about the "Oh, I'd never sue" thing, is that sometimes they don't have a choice.

    Medical forms and insurance forms usually have a section that asks if the injury was due to an...

    I thought about using a bill of sale, but was worried about placing a very low dollar value on the horse and having it recorded in a legal document in case the new owner wants to insure the horse. ...
  6. Anyone have a Deed of Gift form I can use?

    I am very sadly giving away a much-loved horse soon.

    Although the recipient is someone referred by a very trusted friend and I've checked them out as thoroughly as I can, I know from the...

    When I asked about them at Thermal this winter I was told there'd been a recall of all of them, and they hadn't come out with replacements.

    Find a Bikram (hot) yoga class nearby and start doing it at least twice a week. You will *hate* it for the first few classes but then your brain and your body will get used to being able to perform...

    I've had three fibroid surgeries and each time they kept growing back. Then a new doctor told me about UAE and that she'd had it done for her own fibroids.

    I researched it and had it done three...

    Also, if you use fabric softener, don't use it every time you wash wool socks because it makes them less absorbent. The same goes for towels. Add some white vinegar to remove the built-up fabric...

    Well, just after I posted the question my trainer called and we agreed not to go. Other reasons in addition to worries about the smoke. Half disappointment, half relief for me.

    What's the air quality like around LAEC? We're tentatively planning to haul down from Seattle next week, but won't if it's too smoky for the horses.

    Well, not to be harsh, but more to be blunt: yes, you would think that could be a clue. To you. You know the grids are dangerous and you've seen a horse hurt by it. You've seen your trainer...

    I'm late to the fray here (think I'm glad about that), but I'll give a very high two-thumbs-up to the Blinc mascara. It's also marketed under the name Kiss Me. It makes tubes around your lashes and...

    Oh, please. I was there, same rings, same days, same time. Just like there wasn't any knee-deep mud (except maybe for the JRTs), there wasn't any foam dripping off of hocks.

    I was there too and though I didn't get out to the show grounds on Saturday until 10, I didn't think the footing was bad either, and I'm a footing weenie. However, I am from the PNW, where we're...

    I just had my second reduction 4 weeks ago. There was a HUGE difference in recovery (different doctors, different anesthesia). For my first, 3.5 years ago, I had general anesthesia. Long, painful,...

    I'd agree with your SO. I was just watching KOMO and they've blocked off the entrances to 520 at Redmond Way so they don't have as many cars to rescue. And the traffic cams at 520/West Lake...

    Bikram (hot) yoga. I don't do so well in the heat and it helps me get through those 90 degree shows a little better. Plus it helps with flexibility, strength, and stamina.
