    The darned robins keep eating my strawberries, the darned rabbits keep eating my tiger lilies, and my darn dogs don't prevent any of this malicious behavior.

    I just destroyed a pair of show breeches thanks to downpour + saddle dye bleeding, and had to buy a new pair. I've taken the opposite stance as you: I'll...

    While this is fair, my logic went something like this:
    Will my life ever be less complicated than it is right now?

    Super unlikely. My job will get more demanding the longer I work. I may have a...

    The benefit: free leases = 0 capital cost of entry to the horse biz for the lessee. The owner is taking all financial risk-- it's equally likely (or maybe even more likely) that the horse isn't...

    Hate to say it... but most of this sport is "all the same things". Straightness. Suppleness. Engagement. Rinse, repeat. The only thing that changes up the levels is that it gets a bit more...

    I'm cnm161, and I definitely put the change on my young horse early, and I ride dressage. Wonder if I'm too old, underconfident, and lacking in an educated seat.
