About getting to the top: There are lots of variables, which have already been mentioned, that factor into being a top rider. Tough to say which is most important, but I think having a partner in...
I like the jacket and that its made with the same sort of materials used in other sports apparel. As far as the name. . . i think of my horse who spooks.
Love the book and movie.
Seem to me that tMargaret Mitchell was a feminist . . . get this impression from the book rather than the film.
How about time in the saddle?
Good points. What started as discussion about categorizing obesity as a disease devolved into the familar debate about the "right" diet or the "real" cause of obesity.
IMO the real reason it...
Address rider attitude when handling/or riding. Example: Managing your emotions when correcting a horse.
You could also adress Sportsmanship and mental aspects of competing.
Vintage clothing . . . who knew?!
Thanks for all the suggestions.
I have a collection from years of riding. Some retired after a crash and some are just "aged out". I hate to just toss them, and in good conscience can't donate them to a riding program.
I believe Pippa Funnel worked with a sport psychologist. . . think I read this in COTH or Practical Horsemen
Finding a practitioner is a bit like finding a good...
I'm skeptical of the idea that football and basketball are money makers supporting the rest of the sports in a university program.
Perhaps a handful of programs (major universities) make money,...

I don't think its "a curse".
I do think its incredibly hard to maintain a world champion performance for a long time. There are lots of athletes who win at their respective world championships...
Foxtrot- That's Cullen Jones, I think. He almost drowned when quite small and his mom immediately put him in swim lessons.
Swimbiscuit! Love it!
Golf will be added in Rio - 2016
Still one of the best in the world. And looks in better shape than most 20 somethings I know.
His preparation certainly wasn't the same as it was for Beijing. After watching recent story about...
Circus performers don't have athletic skills?
Once read a newspaper article about Cirque de Soleil and their performers. Many come from diving or gymnastics and many had olympic dreams that never...
Not a groupie, but after seeing Holley Mangold profiled on HBO's "Real Sports" I'll be pulling for her.
To compete at the elite level requires a great deal of skill, wether others see it as a "sport" or not. For example, synchronized swimming requires a high level of endurance and strength. But...
Think the "Greek model" is romanticized . . . only free, men competed . . .
I suspect the results will be very similar to the trials.
Addison, Meghan DACVA-
I'm interested in reading up on the Merial research . . . would you be able to direct me to that literature?
Also, curious aout how spliting pills changes the...
DMK nailed it.
To me, the point of this thread was about item #1 rather than more analysis of the amature rule.
