    If we've had a ride that she enjoyed or has challenged her, she whinnies when you get out of the saddle. You have to really work to get the whinny though. She won't do it if she didn't have to work.

    It is kind of rude to join a message board and start forcefully schooling its members on what does and does not take place in a specific discipline.

    I use custom nail solutions. They are custom fitted, glue on nails. They stay on anywhere from 1-4 weeks (depending on how fast your nails grow) and you can re-do them at home. They are guaranteed...

    I lost a horse in a barn fire, and 14 other horses died. The culprit was not a cigarette, but a space heater. Regardless, smoking is a no go around my horse. I'd do whatever it took to get my...

    I had lap band in 2008. I went from 250 to 160. I think I was out of the saddle for about a month. My surgery was laproscopic, so I only had tiny little incisions that needed to heal.

    My...

    I also have an Optimax and I love it. I had it built for my Fjord, but it fits my current horse, a paint mare, perfectly also. It has a narrow twist and feels very close to the horse.

    I can't believe in God, and I'm curious why you think that means I'm putting my pride first. What does pride have to do to it. Can you force yourself to believe in the tooth fairy?

    I'm an atheist. I'm not angry, there is actually no emotion involved. There is no one to be mad at. It just is. I am won over by logic and science, vs faith.
