    Bahtforyourthoughts, please PM me if you want to talk about Asia and horses. May be able to put you in touch with some people (depending on your discipline of choice).

    1) Buy an oven thermometer. They're $5-10 and give you an idea of what the temperature of your oven actually is. Preheat oven to 450*.

    2) Cut up carrots and/or parsnips. Toss with olive oil, salt,...

    After close to 20 years riding jumpers, I took a barrel racing lesson this past weekend while in Wyoming, and needless to say, I loved it. I live full-time in NYC, and would love to take some more...

    Yogurt with berries and cereal was my go-to while I was eating dairy.

    Currently breakfast is a mashed avocado on a piece of toast-- not low-cal, but good fats that keep me full until lunch.

    I have been very pleased with the multiple pairs of field boots, paddock boots and half chaps that Fabbri has made for me over the years, especially at the price point-- my field boots, with all of...

    If you are trying to go somewhere interesting I think you will be disappointed in 5 Napkin Burger-- it's a (small) chain but feels very corporate to me. If it's that you specifically want a burger,...

    Since you said that you have trouble finding the right pieces in your closet, I would start by going through and cleaning out your closet. You don't have to throw anything out! Take what you don't...

    Roast your brussel sprouts with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar!
    Roasted broccoli is also delicious
    I also love shredded brussel sprout salad-- Trader Joes sells pre-shredded brussel sprouts but if...

    Dermatologist! Followed by a good, non-soap cleanser, and an oil-free moisturizer-- I personally am a big fan of Vivite products-- pricey but worth it for my incredibly sensitive, incredibly dry...

    OP, please don't take offense to this, but if you show up saying that you are showing at 2'6" (regardless of the level of success you have had at that level) and have aspirations to show at higher...

    Cutting out caffeine entirely helped me immensely-- I figured that a cup of coffee at 7am was not going to affect my sleep 15+ hours later, but I found myself sleeping much better with no caffeine at...

    Agree that another vision check may be in order. As a teenager, had a very fancy pony who would jump the same jump five times no problem, and spook the sixth time around, and you could not convince...

    The two pairs of Vogels I had both saw serious use for 4ish years each. Well worth the money spent on them. Is there a reason you're not considering them? With proper measurement, both pairs came out...

    Echoing the suggestion to try kids. Am 5'4" and about 100lbs and wear TS kids size 14 breeches. Just make sure you get something with a little stretch.

    Call Beval about a 16" Butet. Should be able to find one for you quite quickly.

    Another vote for something other than the scourrier-- the mouthpiece for those is usually squared off and quite sharp-- my soft-mouthed horse who also dropped behind the bit was hugely offended by it.

    Another vote for a saintly medium pony. My sister had the best, quietest, most patient pony ever to learn on. The only time she fell off was when he shook one time trying to get a fly off. Was a been...

    Myself de Breve, Marie Hecart's horse, is only about 15 hands. Pretty close in size to many of the large ponies doing the division.

    Had one who had similar quirks-- making sure he had no oats or corn helped a lot. We had him on the most basic, lowest energy feed we could, with as much hay as he wanted to try to keep him from...

    Don't limit yourself to Europe because you don't speak another language. I've lived on multiple continents and have traveled extensively through Europe and Asia and found that it was much easier to...

    Nothing wrong with using the Mikmar at home to jump-- flat in the other bit, and then change bridles. Or is the Mikmar too much bit at home?

    We started my very timid, very small sister off on a medium pony. He was an absolute saint, but also big enough that a smaller adult could get on if he ever decided to try anything.

    Also, if...

    Had a lot of trouble gaining weight as a child, and was eating as much "real food" as my body could handle. Started drinking Ensure Plus after meals-- 600 calories a can, three times a day, made a...

    Agree 100% about sticking the horse on the longe for a few minutes-- also, see if you can make adjustments to his feed-- I've found that to be quite effective-- you may need to continue adjusting it...

    Try the Tailored Sportsman 4-way stretch front-zip jods-- they are cut differently than the side zip ones, and are considerably more narrow than the other Tailored Sportsman ones
