    Not quite accurate. The Area 2 Council and Chair are and have been committed to working with Surefire should they wish to move their date, even on short notice, given that Great Meadow's date was set...

    Frankly, unless he had on an EXO or other firm external skeleton type vest (and maybe not even then), I suspect most of the engineers/technical folks will say the vest wouldn't have made much of a...

    Talk with your doctor, not the internet.

    There isn't a bright line rule for most folks - you can do testing up front to find out if you or your partner is a carrier for some of the particular...

    While having a "whoa" button is useful, as an ammy buyer, I'd prefer to see one that has been out to a few schooling shows/schooling opportunities. If you can show me video from taking the horse out...

    Lot of assumptions here. Though when a post starts out by calling these "nefarious" obstacles, there might could be a wee bit of an agenda going in.

    Noting that there could be a pilot error isn't...

    I promise folks will notice far more if you leave piles of manure in the aisle or uncleaned tack hanging on the hooks for a day or so than if you don't have a "name-brand" gear or clothes. Folks...

    I think taking the time to visit whenever you can (as she and her caregivers are comfortable with it) is one of the most important things. It's really easy for folks not to be present in these hard...

    We used doggie diapers on our aged wheaten who grew increasingly incontinent as he aged and they worked great. He was in them overnight and whenever we were away from the house. The male "wraps"...

    I'm a tomboy too, and a pretty similar shape. Depends, of course, on the crowd that's going to be there - my taste may run too much toward something that will look a little more country club/new...

    Summery daytime wedding? Floral and fun is always a safe bet. Some suggestions - on each of these, could easily throw a sweater or scarf over your shoulders if the wedding is in a church. I'd add...

    Agree with BFNE. We sold one awhile ago that I would've said was one of the sweetest, kindest, most packery horses ever: the horse that we put my DH on for his first lesson ever but would also...

    You mean the semi-annual "I'm at the show and running late and haven't learned my course and can't get my boots on" dream? Yep. That sucker's an old friend.

    He's absolutely adorable.

    Also, that text exchange is worth keeping for posterity. Because how, exactly, does one mention that perhaps the gender was misconstrued?

    What Findeight said. Patting the ground is a smart horse's ability to fix a not-great spot and still jump pretty well from it. I would not describe it as producing a "fabulous jump" by any means,...

    I struck by the difference between USEF's coverage and COTH's - COTH's show jump and Grand Prix coverage is so much better than USEF's that I would be curious if COTH could do the same for rolex.

    Did you call the police at the time? You may need to get a copy of the police report (if you did) and read what its conclusions are.

    Separately, of course, call your insurance company. They'll...

    I say this very, very gently. If finances are a concern, particularly given the costs that arise with a wee one, I would not be thinking about throwing any kind of big wedding plus reception (and...

    Second trimester is often a pretty good time in terms of how folks are feeling, so I wouldn't let the fear of feeling cruddy stop you if you really want a big wedding. But, if you're not comfortable...

    A lot depends on what you mean by "upper levels". Is this the horse I'd pick out of a field to be the next Rolex horse? Probably not - but that's a pretty rare beast, particularly when they are...

    Folks have made good points here and the numbers thrown out by BFNE and Phoenix are both pretty accurate in my experience. Being in the Mid-Atlantic or Area III with a number of events in close...

    Agree with NT. Horses pulling out at Rolex or other major events are actually pretty common, for a variety of reasons. Most of these are overwhelmingly benign: missed gallop, stone bruise, hot...
