    Mr. Horse does not tie. It's no big deal. I just tack up in a stall.

    OK, so thanks to everyone's enthusiasm, I borrowed this from the library. It had been put in a remote storage facility because no one was reading it! For shame!

    What a treat to see little Joe...

    One really interesting fact about eventing is the recent change in format. Olympic eventing now uses the "short format" rather than the "long format" program.

    Live Feeds - Are They Recorded?

    I tuned into the WEF Jumper Derby a little late and missed the first few rounds. Is there a way to go back and watch the whole class?

    Bad Hair (Rider)

    Confession: I am completely useless at hair.

    It has come to my attention that my hair is sticking out from under my helmet in a MOST unattractive way. Despite my attempts to look reasonably...

    I can't speak from personal experience, but I would certainly call Paradigm for information -- looks like a very impressive facility, dedicated exclusively to equine retirement-- located in...

    Depending on where you live, I would also add parts of the South to the list. Similar to the Midwest, it can be quite a hike to see horses in Mississippi, Alabama, etc., though there are plenty of...

    I wish they would show Thunder on TV more often.

    I went to Florida State, where we have a horse, Renegade, as our school symbol.

    I am amazed at how desensitized these horses are to the noise,...

    I am glad Mukluk brought up the driveway; that was my question.

    Also, if you do not fence the perimeter of your property, and choose rather to leave a little room between the pasture fence and...

    It's a little more nuanced, but I essentially cue a slight (or not-so-slight, if necessary) haunches-in for canter transitions and lead changes alike. In the transitions, some (dressage) horses want...

    Definitely check with the hunt secretary before you do anything drastic to your nice helmet. My bow points down, too, but our local hunt kindly assured me not to worry about it!

    I would...

    I think this is a little easier than Misty. "My Pony" by Susan Jeffers is really sweet, easier but still age-appropriate, and the illustrations are just gorgeous. I loved Thelwells when I was that...

    I'm not very motivated to leave the baby for anything lacking four hooves and a tail!

    Mr. Baby loves it when I get out the yoga mat. He cracks up copying "scissors/helicopter" and of course "happy baby" but before long climbs me like a jungle gym, gnaws on my mat, and steals my...

    Your first round was quite good! I liked that pace a lot. The second round had some nice moments, but it looked like you both got a bit rattled with a little "oops" at the first fence and never...

    Riding Lessons vs. Gym Membership

    I was kind of beating myself up this morning on my way to the barn. I am still pretty flabby from having Mr. Baby 11 months ago, and I miss my former fitness. "A gym membership," I told myself,...

    I really don't see why you can't both take some classes and work with horses. Lots of people work full-time and take classes! Some of them probably even work with horses.

    There are so many...

    Color is certainly not a detractor, as long as the horse can jump/move.

    For example, I have certainly seen these faaaaaancy pinto warmbloods clean up:

    I always see distances from 4 out. Not 5, not 3, but 4. Poles, 3'6" oxers, and everything inbetween!

    The hardest thing is not seeing a distance, in which case I keep my leg softly supportive,...

    It is tempting to bring the LO to the barn with you, and if you just want bb to see the horses, maybe pet a trusted equine's shoulder, and go home, that would work. But I do not bring my LO to the...

    There was a nice little spread on her Gucci duds in vogue a while back. There was a great photo where her ponytail and her stallions tail were bouncing in exactly the same way.
