    I'm really sorry to see that so many people think I'm talking about them, their friends, or their family. I was hoping this would follow a different path. Oh well. I don't know you, which means I...

    Ah, you're referring to that signature line, something along the lines of "you don't need a $35,000 horse, you need a $1,000 horse and $34,000 worth of lessons"?

    Actually no, that's not what I...

    I'd love some insight into horse economics

    I’d love some insight into behavior that I’ve noticed in the horse world as long as I’ve been riding.

    Have you ever noticed that many equestrians (across multiple disciplines) are willing to...

    On principal I have nothing against negotiating the price of a horse, but assuming this horse is being marketed as a low-level eventer, his owner might not being willing to neg. his price due to his...

    I prefer a regular hairnet, I find that the RWR hairnet just makes a mess of my long hair. I can see it working better with shorter hair.

    But I'd still use it in a pinch.

    As a general rule, I don't believe most ghost stories. I often find that people tend to "see" apparitions/supernatural behavior only in situations where they expect to see something (i.e. touring a...

    Unfortunately, this is an unsubstantiated claim. There is no data that indicates that a higher the purchase price=a safer helmet. Or a better quality helmet (whatever that means).

    I'm not sure why a potential thief would give you her phone #, and tell you where she lives, but you may as well lock up, just in case.

    One the one hand I get it, dressing appropriately is about showing respect for the clinician, not to mention yourself and your horse. On the other hand, I think we spend far, far, FAR, too much time...

    Just a thought, but why don't you buy either a pair of Profit, or Treadsteps that are the same make that you already own, but fit your right leg when it's swollen. That way, when your leg swells up,...

    I'm sure many people think this warrants a new helmet, and maybe they're right, since it's hard to gauge what kind of beating your helmet actually took when you just fell off a horse.
