    I'm a bit (HA) introverted and have to work in an open-office environment with many extroverts. I love me some lonely riding time.

    That said, most amateurs/hobbyists that I know do not have the time/consistency to be starting young horses. I also firmly believe that "ammy-friendly" has to...

    That's not entiiiiiirely accurate. As a generalization, young horses move more and react more to stimuli than older horses. More movement means more exposure to the risk of hurting themselves....

    It's not their first rodeo.

    Nor their second.

    Nor... their third?

    ^^ There's plenty of this in dressage, too. No idea why some people continuously buy horses they can't ride and have no fun handling at a barn where they don't learn/progress and can't keep horses...

    I'm an engineer who graduated and started working (almost) 4 years ago. I can easily afford a mortgage and board on 2 horses at a local-level barn, but nothing anywhere near the project you're...

    What's the difference between pointing out some imperfections from a ride in the 80s vs. a ride from the two most recent decades? Honest question.

    I think most of the people critiquing...

    Yes, but, just to be clear: what's your stance on the anatomical impossibility of a horse being able to cover ground despite the position of its nose? Especially coupled with the multitude of...

    Wait, so... now the argument is back to ridden horses? I thought that horses encumbered by their riders' aids were the exclusion. In fact, here's the quote from comment #231:

    I drive a truck, and I do not clear the bed when it snows. Not worth it. So I deliver a little personal snowstorm as karmic justice when people tailgate in the wintertime. Don't get that close and it...

    Speaking of "wrong, misguided, and unsuccessful", can we circle back to your assertion that a horse's hoof cannot land in front of where the nose points?

    This is pretty clearly a moving target. Not sure I or anyone will be able to fully satisfactorally answer your challenges because the objectives continue to change, but here's one example:...

    This photo has already seen some airtime/publicity, and to be clear I do not advocate riding like this. However, it's pretty clear that the leading fore will strike beyond where the nose points:...

    I've only ever "seen" him on the forums, and it's always with a similar number of few-post authors. His website says he's FEI, but centerline scores says otherwise.

    So much PowerPoint. I also did not know, until I started working, that one could entice a computer to blue-screen by having too many Excel files open. So of my n=2 sample size, engineers do tons of...

    I worked in a fluid dynamics lab when I was getting my undergrad, and made the mistake once of saying "I really like the theory of fluid dynamics" to my professor, who was pretty dismissive....

    I definitely did. I did not want to give up riding/showing, but just do not have the chops to ride and show professionally. So I crafted my career choice partially on what would afford me (pun...

    If you want a picture of how the oil and gas industry has been perceived throughout its history, I recommend taking a read through The Prize by Daniel Yergen. Provides some perspective on how the...

    Maybe it's just me, but I see a 79% and change as being rewarded.
