    Women were "chattel" owned by their husbands or fathers in the USA. Women could not own property. Women could not vote (until long after black men.) It was acceptable, of not expected, for a...

    I would say one half of the cost of keeping the horse (feed, bedding, vet, farrier, insurance) as a bare minimum. But you have also got to take into consideration the overhead you spend on the...

    Is it time for me to say, "I told you so?" Back on page 1, I predicted that this would not be a fruitful discussion.

    I doubt that any minds were changed here. Some people were feeling good...

    I don't think that you understand the concept of "white privilege." It is not something that you caused or are responsible for. It is not something that you need to feel guilty about. It just IS....

    I think what a black person would hear is, "Why can't everybody just be white?" :lol:

    -LISTEN to what people of color have to say. Don't automatically and reflexively invalidate their feelings and opinions.

    -READ what people of color have written.

    Here's my contribution-

    The text below is from the essay “Crazy Sometimes” by Leonard Pitts Jr.

    I have an Ortho-flex all purpose saddle that I love because it allowed me to do all kinds of training and catch riding on horses that did not have their own saddles.

    The Ortho-flex company still...

    Not much good comes from a bunch of white people coming together to talk about race. That's all I'm sayin'.

    Not one of us have a "valid perspective" of what it is like to be black.

    I don't think that COTH is the place to do this. I believe that racial minorities are extremely underrepresented here. In order to have a dialog, you need to talk to racial minorities.

    I think that all we can do is promote and engage in dialog. My friend Bernestine Singley edited a brilliant book of essays in which people describe their experiences and emotions regarding race.

    The stories one hears about the men in the Kennedy clan would also make one wonder how they got away with it. I think that back in the day, these things were considered "personal" and "private" and...

    I second "Unbroken" if he hasn't read it.

    "Ghost Soldiers: The Epic Account of World War II's Greatest Rescue Mission"
    by Hampton Sides was also a really good read.

    But this doesn't ADD any data. It adds someone's interpretation of existing data.

    I think that is mostly true because there is not the gender imbalance in Europe as there is in the USA in the English riding disciplines. In the USA, the number of men becomes striking to us at the...

    I agree. But think about it this way: You may want to read "The Goldfinch" on your way to or from China. But I can assure you, you don't want to CARRY "The Goldfinch" on your way to or from China. ...

    Of course, you can...

    Amazon Prime members get free access to thousands of movies to download. The Fire that I am looking at can download via 4G, wi-fi or USB cable to your computer. Well, heck, here it is.
