    I'm so sorry, OGP. I lost my gelding last year and it's incredibly rough.

    My experience with the federal types is that (at some agencies) they work a LOT of hours with little flexibilty (because you can't work home). If the OP is going that route, she should choose her...

    My instructor refers to the degree of "resting" contact with the legs as cuddling them around the horse -- kind of the same light, gentle contact you would have with your arms if you were just...

    As the former owner of that gorgeous chestnut with high whites and a big blaze -- I would not pay more for it. Ever. Not even if it came with a complementary mushroom scrubber (hands down the BEST...

    OH DEAR GOD NO.

    Where's my brain bleach? I have to excise that visual immediately. :dead:

    That tends to depend heavily on what people want it for.

    I've known people to buy an older, experienced campaigner so that they can move up to its level (whether the one it was at or its new step...

    I think you're right about that. I was measured for my Vogels by someone who really knows what she's doing and I still got one boot that fit like a glove and one that needed to be sent back to...

    Mr. Loshad DVRed it for me. I watched it with Loshad Jr. who kept yelling "More! More!" whenever a horse would finish the course. Hopefully he'll keep liking it as he gets older!

    Indeed. It appears from the fundraising site that the deductable has more than been met. People have been incredibly generous, as have the Mods in allowing what is essentially a fundraising thread...

    When every trainer I've ever had wanted me to add more leg, responsiveness was assumed. "More leg" is far from an invitation to nag -- it's added, the horse moves up, he's more under himself, and...

    Ditto the transitions. I like a stair step exercise - 10 strides in slower gait, 10 in faster, 9 in slower gait, 9 in faster, and so on. I generally didn't go lower than 5 with canter and trot, but...

    Of course you might also like to retire at some point (and with riders that can sometimes come a lot sooner than they might like) without that whole ugly "specter of poverty" deal hanging over your...

    Amber, when I was an exchange student in France I did a riding assessment and then was placed in an appropriate level. I didn't have to take any of the tests first (or, in fact, at all if I didn't...

    China isn't party to the TPP at the moment, and has been deeply suspicious of it, so the passage of the agreement is unlikely to have an influence on the availability of Chinese products.

    Three now. And as a long time (and very jaded) poster I will admit I thought the exact. same. thing as Neddy and Janeway.

    Those of you who have GG offspring old enough to be under saddle -- what do they do? I'd be interested to see photos of them in action.

    I'm in the same boat as SteppinEasy (although a size 5, which is slightly easier to find). My tall boots are custom because I can't find anything off the rack that fits my foot, my calf, and my leg...

    Goah, I can't imagine why ANYONE would find the OP's post offensive. It's not like she said ANYTHING rude AT ALL. Seriously, you nellies, belt up and stop infringing the OP's freedom of speech.

    "My dog's really friendly" drives me nuts. My dogs are VERY friendly with people, but dislike other dogs more and more as they get older. This is why they are trained to "leave it" and are always...
