    No TV and rarely listen to commercial radio. What I learn I learn via research, talking with friends (a good friend is usually a really good source for helping me understand local issues), and from...

    I do not believe in deprivation, as long as you are sensible in catering to your craving or don't follow through with a not so great craving ALL the time. So, have your baked potato and enjoy.

    Me? A fashion blog? Surely you jest! (But it would be kinda fun).

    The thing is, 2 minutes is an eternity on a fit, wired, horse. Yes, some you can still pull up and expect them to stand mostly quietly, but there are some that you just do not stop moving, or else...

    If you're wearing your tweed hacking jacket and want to be absolutely 100% HUNTING ratcatcher turnout correct, you absolutely would NOT wear a ratcatcher shirt. The MOST correct would be a collared...

    This is true. But, be forewarned, if your ponies are working, it is a pain to wait. We waited to clip last year on Toby because he wasn't competing and was going to get a pretty decent vacation PLUS...

    Love Cocosoya and it isn't that expensive, as far as sups go (especially considering how much I give my horse!). Besides, seems like a big old PITA to mix the two together. But I'm also very lazy....

    Yep, and we get a lot of Mikus. You just have to be willing to stop in a lot!

    Also, to answer your more general question, the price of boarding is essentially the same anywhere you go in the DC Metro area (and I consider Middleburg in that). You can expect that the closer in...

    I think if she's willing to cross the mountain into Clark county, she can find less expensive options. Getting closer to DC the costs are just going to go up, and the facilities are going to offer...

    I've done those pleasure "Hack" classes before. You usually just do a rail class, then everyone (or the top whatever. Probably depends on the show/judge) jumps two little fences, not a whole course. ...

    Pins are SO 1990s! :winkgrin:

    And I got the joke. Meant to comment but forgot. Well played, subk, well played.

    Purp, it's cute. Not for me, but cute. Horseware had something similar. A little...

    Are you sure it's the hardness of the seat and not the width of the twist, or the position the saddle puts you in? Have you tried a Thinline pad under the saddle to see if it might help (it has...

    Because of the job I now have, I obsessively collect ratcatcher shirts (we sell used ones for an incredible price. Add my discount to that, and it is ridiculous what I get them for....I can't NOT buy...

    PS- The last time I show jumped in formal attire (which doesn't happen much in Area 2), I wore a wrap collar shirt. Hard to tell, but here we are.

    It's hardly a new trend. Here's KOC, back in the Dark Ages, in a ratcatcher. I know Jan Bynny has worn ratcatchers for ages (as long as I've been watching her jump around big courses), as well.

    I...

    Thank you for saying that! When I hunted last weekend, I pointed at a hole at one point- a hold over from cycling when you point/gesture at hazards because you can't always hear from the rate of...

    Another SAD sufferer. When it hits, it hits hard and fast. It hit me about 3 weeks ago (then followed by PMS), so I've been fighting the grumps for the better part of a month. Fine fall weather makes...

    I've known plenty of horses at all levels to event in them. Bell boots tend to be necessary, and studs are pretty necessary past the occasional plop around a baby novice type outing. The more steel...

    I agree. I've known quite a few horses that the absolute worst thing you could do while warming up. I rather keep on keeping on than stop.

    I also agree thst that some riders may be so far in the...

    If she has the option of hauling to a trainer for lessons but boarding at a private barn or pasture boarding, then she may have more options. But if she needs the trainer on site, it may be more...

    The bridle is coming from Smartpak.;)

    I'll do a little digging to see if I can come up something. Maybe talking to an Etsy seller is the way to go.

    When I do legs, I do as much as the horse will tolerate/I can mange with the big clippers, then finish with small clippers. For Toby, that means getting to his knee/hock, then pulling out the little...

    I know a few people who are anti-smartphone, and that's fine. But, while I don't use mine quite to capacity that is possible, there are a lot of things I, at this point, could not live without.
