    I am not a fan of Parra. However, I hope in this case he has a copy of the video of the owner of the horse *riding* the horse in tighter side reins than the position he had the horse on when it...

    If I can audit a symposium, I will. Totally different situation, and very often worth missing a day of riding for the amount of learning. My clinic auditing is only partial days, though, when I can...

    I thought the placings were fairly right (in my VERY inexpert opinion) but don't necessarily think the scores were. At that level, I figure placing's what matters anyway, so don't care so much if...

    I try to audit all I can.

    However, things like lessons on my horses take priority, and I know many other people feel the same.

    You look like you're sitting too far back in the saddle - and have space in front of you that you could sit more forward. Is that as open as your hip angle can get? If so, it may be saddle fit. ...

    Sue does my saddles, and my horses are very happy. My gelding is a major Princess and the Pea type, and he stays happy with the job she does. Which is not an easy one!

    She doesn't speak a lot of English, but has done clinics here, as my trainer and his wife have ridden with her.

    That may have been before she became UTA GRAF. ;) I have no idea when it was, just...

    She is REALLY cute. You're not doing so badly yourself, either!
