    Sheesh! And my instructor tells me I overthink things.

    Pretty sure my horse doesn't care if he's recognizing his potential or doing anything necessary for human survival. If he could talk, he'd...

    I haven't seen anyone who just doesn't "get" it and can't get it ever. It may be that I just haven't seen that many people. What I have seen is people that take a lot longer to get it. This is...

    I agree with you that we anthropomorphize way too much and cannot expect animals to respond to us based on love or affection the way we respond to other humans. But I have to disagree with the quote...

    It's not just Facebook. Scroll through BigEq, Dreamhorse, and you'll find a bunch of stolen photos.

    That throws up a big red flag for me. If they're dishonest enough to steal a photo for a sale...

    Seen a couple around here. They're twice around the outside with two poles in between standards on the long side. Sometimes the riders circle before/after, sometimes not, depending on the show.

    Yeah. I want that little roan-y boy with his Roman nose. He jumps from anywhere!

    There is no app for flash on an iPad. ;) I don't think I've downloaded anything. But it does take a while to get the picture.

    mojo, It took about 3 minutes or so for the picture to show up on my iPad. I had sound in about a minute (a full minute--longer than it seems) but the picture didn't show up for at least two minutes...

    I was there several years ago, and they had a bar where you could order beer and wine (and about everything else--my mother got a bottle of mead :rolleyes: .)

    It is cheesy fun. I found the food to...

    About a week during snowmageddon. Usually, they're turned out in the indoor if it's too snowy/icey. But the indoor collapsed from the snow, so that wasn't an option. :eek:

    Thanks JER!

    I'm glad they do have a standard, but it's depressing that the first rider in the video slipped through somehow. I know we all have bad days, but that was more than a bad day. It's...

    I was thinking of something like this, then I realized it could make it even worse. The people who don't spend much time working on their riding are going to spend even less if the riding gets...

    I read that they have to drop the reins before the actual impact (and get penalties if they don't) so they don't inadvertently bang the horse in the mouth. Made me happy that they protect the horses...

    I got the reins too.

    The TC reins broke while I was riding. Luckily, I wasn't jumping a course or anything; I was just hacking in the barn arena. So nothing bad happened. I couldn't figure out...

    Count me as another one who uses ammonia in hot water for cleaning followed by an only barely damp sponge application of saddle soap for conditioning. It must be an old timer thing because my rather...

    I grew up with a sheltie and have had two of my own. One was put down just over a year ago. Miss her every day. They are wonderful dogs.

    DO go to a good breeder (as mentioned) and check the...

    Well, I'm a nervous nelly, control freak with no eye. So I'd happily buy any color horse so long as it has the ability and temperament to cart me around! Seriously, there are so many things more...

    Oh my gosh! The Lighthorsemen! That is the most kick butt charge ever filmed. The first time I saw it, I jumped out of my seat when they made it under the guns, and I get chills when they call for...

    I think it's different with team sports. If your team is slaughtering the other guys, you put in players who normally sit on the bench, try new plays you haven't perfected yet, etc. Those things help...

    This. It's just stupid to drive that fast at dusk where deer are prevalent.

    So many of us have similar trail ride stories! I went on a trail ride out near Yellowstone. My friend and I were the only experienced riders in the group, and we were the only ones in helmets. She's...

    My dogs have always been high energy puppies who mellow into high energy adults. :D That means they do slow down quite a bit, but they still remain high energy dogs. I don't think a bunny on caffeine...
