    Ah, a subject NO ONE on this board wants to talk about. NOT.

    Man, I guess I'll have to give up my Democratic registration and become Libertarian. Required blankets (brand)? Required hardware? BO has a charge for blankets on/blankets off, if requested. ...

    I must have the most reasonable riding friends/companions in the world. The one who is a pro (but not my trainer) NEVER says a thing when I am riding, except (a) to say something along the lines of...

    LOL. When I ride in the evenings after work, I usually have the radio on. In the summer, baseball. In the winter, classical music. NEVER country.

    There definitely is one. I've seen most of the ads in magazines like Horse & Rider which is sort of winglish in its articles. It's a collapsible stool, with a string so you can pull it up and tie...

    Looks like it might be an old Crosby or Pariani jumping saddle, but how are you going to tell whether the tree is okay? Might be a bargain if you're looking for "d├ęcor."
