    Honestly, I don't see a reason to. It's not particularly comfortable so I only wear it when I feel I'm going to be doing something slightly more dangerous than pushing my overweight warmblood...

    I don't know if the 'airbag' comment was directed at me, but you asked a question and I answered it seriously. Please don't make fun of me for that.

    People who wear four platinum blonde hairnets to try to hide the fact that they have brown hair.

    PRICES!!!

    Ok, this probably isn't a TREND, but I am so tired of having anything you need to show in cost so much.

    Helmet, $325.
    Coat, $500.
    Show shirt, $80.
    Breeches, $220.
    Boots, $450.

    Oppps, I forgot.

    The other thing I should really change about the scale is factoring in CURRENT health problems vs. past health problems. For example, dead lame NOW drops the price significantly....

    Have redone scale somewhat, realizing that a lot of the catagories overlapped a bit, inflating prices. And egos, too, I'm sure. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

    Patchouli-

    Parkside runs around $1000 for board/training. I think that that's the only program they offer--if you board there, you're in full training.
