    I'm for wearing whatever. I love the new tech coats but since I've been feeling a bit broke and I own about 7 really nice wool ones, I just wear those. I mean, it's a $600 bespoke coat that is nice...

    Please keep us posted on progress of at home hair remover-y thingie. I would totally try that but I'm not going to dump a bunch of money on something that doesn't work.

    I have a lovely pair of Vogels that date back to B.C. times, purchased on ebay for $41. Brown. They lack the bells and whistles of some of today's boots, but I don't doubt they'll probably last...

    I've been a vegetarian since I was 8. I try not to ask to be accommodated because there is almost always something, but I do try to make sure my hosts know one way or another so they don't cook an...

    I think it's important to keep our integrity at the lower level shows, whether we use them as a stepping stone for larger shows or if we plan to just stay in that sandbox. I've always hated the...

    FWIW, I have a cousin who is trans and a family that hasn't always been the most supportive of what they considered alternative lifestyles. I'm just pleased that with more positive attention going...

    An electric blanket is probably what I would wear.

    I've never gotten any benefit from being a USEF member. And I still don't know what the actual hell the USHJA does and why I have to pay them, too.

    FWIW, I've been a vegetarian for about 22 years. I don't cheat - certainly never knowingly. I ask about things like broth in soup, etc. And I don't want people to go out of their way to cook for me,...
