    Thanks for the suggestions

    Everyone is shedding right now so that's not helping matters. I rode this week without spurs and made a point to watch my feet when I rode toward the mirrors- my left...

    Muttluks has two models that might work- the all weather (we used them for the winter to protect from road salt, they disappeared before I could try them in the summer but we really liked them) and...

    If you add up all the gifts from all of my graduations, I think it is just over 1000, not including my parents offering to cover moving expenses as a masters graduation gift.

  4. Pronation and/or old injury causing spur rub?

    So in the last few weeks I caused 2 spur rubs (no broken skin, thankfully, probably helps that they are rounded end) but only on the left side. I changed spurs between the two and my trainer...

    I was one of the last of my peers (we're the last of the 80s babies) for everything- shared a cellphone with my little bother from 14-16 since we worked at the same place, my own when I got my DL at...

    It's not ideal, but I've made it work. Student loans mean a horse is still a couple years off but with the right instructor I'm still improving with 1-2 lessons a week. The extra lesson does make a...

    She does the shipping boot dance to kick off boots so we've given up on them. At least she's grown enough of an undercoat that she's otherwise warm enough, there were doubts for awhile that that...

    I like the idea of using the bridesmaid's dresses as an indication of what the bride wants. I let my bridesmaids choose their own dresses with a few guidelines (church appropriate, eggplant or...

    My sheltie is a mixed bag.
    When she cracked a premolar in half that exposed the root; we didn't know for at least couple of days, I even brushed her teeth and she didn't make a peep. I took her to...

    I'm skeptical of how well it does, especially mitigating the migration side-to-side. The gore problem is just a brand issue for me. Even Freya is a bit wide for me except on the plunge styles, but...

    Seriously. If your root shape works with the panache sport (the center gore is a smidge wide and I get a little tissue migration because of the U of the wire) that is FANTASTIC. I think I'm going to...

    I've really enjoyed my time riding with Britta and it's pretty obvious I've improved from my lessons. She does expect her students to put forth effort but I...

    I didn't see it mentioned but sorry if I missed it-
    We're looking for a rental house now and most of our criteria have been mentioned (smooth/hardy flooring, secure fencing, etc) but we're also...

    I think I killed the area fair experience for my barn growing up.

    As a very green rider (11 yo), I took the horse I had been riding in lessons, an OTTB with crowding issues, into the W/T...

    Agreed. There are tons of variations of nicknames for Katherine (related to 5 different spellings and they each use a different variation)

    Another thing to keep in mind is you may decide on a...

    Congrats!
    We went to a 2 day trial the other year to give our Sheltie a shot a tagging HIT to her name. There were a bunch of Belgians there (all the same line) and they loved it! It was great to...

    SXSW is March 9-12 so if you're aiming for late March, you'd be fine. In college we'd drive to Austin to go dancing (great swing scene though we were closer with DFW, also a good choice to visit but...

    Despite numerous falls, and head strikes between 12 and 16 yo, I was never told by trainers to go to the doctor, replace my helmet, or take a break from riding because of injury. My parents do have a...

    That is probably the problem they have been having looking for houses - but their realtor/friend did say they have been some of the pickiest clients she's had (good friends so she can say that.) I...

    Have you thought about Shirlington? It's not as trendy as Del Ray but it's certainly cheaper with less scary parking. We have friends upgrading from the townhouse they bought when first stationed up...
