    Sticky Situation, yes, exactly. I tell my students to keep the horse "between the aids", and call it "the corridor of aids" :) When we start warming up (after loosening them laterally and then...

    I had a clinician once describe "in front of the leg" as being a "Zen thing", which I thought was an interesting way of looking at it. ;)

    One can tell when the horse is *not* in front of the leg!,...

    Help! I am "technology impaired" :)

    TIA!

    I'm with Zu Zu, I never used to make The Voice "appointment television" (my DH didn't like it, and I didn't want to watch it by myself ;) ), but the quality of the contestants this year has blown me...

    Well, damn!! I am newly insuring my 2 year old filly with Hallmark (insured at 5K), for 10K in MM--here was MY quote! :confused:

    Saw a bunch--and sat in about 10--at Carmax today (mostly Hondas and Nissans, a Kia, and a couple of Hyundais); the Nissan's seats were the *most* comfortable for my bad and temperamental back,...

    Thanks for the additional input! :)

    Talking with DH about it, he agrees that Subaru is a good car for many reasons, but the mileage isn't the greatest (and I can't find *any* Outbacks in our price...

    :lol: :lol: Or a jump jet :winkgrin:

    OP, you are getting lots of good advice here; I would carefully heed it! I live in the heart of Chantilly :mad:, and the misery and frustration of my daily...

    Thanks for all the input--lots of food for thought :)

    To clarify, NO manual transmissions (I can't drive a stick, nor can DH); NO concerns with re-sale--we drive our cars into the ground; and...
  14. Buying a *used* car (through Carmax), best recommendations for a sedan hatchback

    priced around 15K? Everything seems SO pricey to me :sigh:, but then again we have (and probably always will) drive our old cars into the ground or until they expire (22 year old Volvo station wagon...

    Thanks, folks! I heard back from my student and she has an appt. set with David Yauch (took awhile for them to hook up since her e-mail to him went to spam), so with luck he'll be able to help her...

    I have a call into Sharon (left a VM) because of all the good things I've heard about Tim :)

    If they can't accommodate the mare, I'll move to the next on the list; it would be ideal (in a perfect...

    AKB--the plan is to keep the mare in work over the winter, and do some schooling dressage shows with her (and a jumper show or two); the owner will be back to riding her (after knee surgery) by...
  18. Cross country "tune up boot camp" for young mare in NoVa--Windchase the best option?

    One of my students has a 6 year mare (homebred TB) who would benefit from some cross country mileage/training under a strong, experienced pro who has a good record with greenies--in particular...

    Thanks, AKB. How is the footing? Are there any downhill questions? We are working on getting this student's mare more comfortable with downhill jumps--her one and only "issue"; she's small and catty,...
  20. Looking for loading help in the Warrenton VA area--anyone know of someone good?

    Posting this for a student :)

    She's been having loading issues with her horse, and the woman she contacted for help continues to "flake out" on her and cancel appointments (or not get back to...

    Thanks, Zu Zu! :) Yes, I thought so--hence my query thread. I was unpleasantly surprised to see this, but I won't complain; I've been lucky lately (knock wood!), so it was only a matter of time...

    I think the sharps disposal fee is probably reasonable (and certainly doesn't measurably pad the bill!), but I think the dispensing charge is a new "fee" they have added to the vet bills--not having...

    Interesting responses.

    Yes, I thought it was odd (and new to me, for this practice), and though I DID expect the $500 vet bill, it was still a bit. Um. Painful.

    Especially when itemized, it...
