    Debbie just turned 60, so she's aged out of any chance of international judging. I'm not sure her time would be best spent judging training level rides for months on end as an L graduate with...

    oohhhh ... tension :( , yeah. I think a lot of riders share that bugaboo ...

    Checking the tension in my neck is a new trick for me and it actually trickles through my shoulders, arms and torso.

    IMO after working with a guy who emphasizes balance is that it's the culmination of everything else going right, not something one does exercises "for". And, of course, it's very strongly influenced...

    I don't think my observation is on-point to the original discussion but, FWIW, Verdades had never been to any of the venues after Gladstone in June 2014, much less those venues under those...

    I wonder about perspective here. How do you "punish" a well-executed movement in an FEI 5-star GP class? Against what standard?

    If the tension ruins a movement, well, sure. But if the canter...

    Maybe you're over-thinking the rising part of the trot? Sit a few strides, then rise a few strides and feel where your body changes balance and connection.

    Your inside leg goes the whole way up to...

    What a great set of resources! Helplines are a reasonable way to put a toe in the water of opening up about the issue to someone smart about it.

    I was so excited to read about the setting of gender-neutral standards and the success of this entire Ranger class, but of course, I have special admiration for the first two women to complete the...

    FWIW, it seems to me that if you have to support that much, your horse is still where Ambitious Kate recommends. For it to really really work, your horse needs to be able to *balance* herself and you...

    Thanks all for the great responses! I've only seen the garden in the dark this week (yuk work)

    I use the kindle app on my samsung tablet (12") and really enjoy the flexibility and getting books immediately. I think a Kindle appliance gives you more access to lending books than just the app,...

    Hmn ... maybe Mike Rowe should run for office. Seems like he's someone many of us can agree one :)

    Hmnn ... sounds like *you* did awesome as a rider, as well!

    The balance at the big trot may take time to develop. Try not to get impatient :)

    It is worth noting that there are people who believe in god(s) other than the God of Abraham (also known as Yaweh, Jehova, Allah, among other monikers).

    Best wishes to you.
  16. Milkweed and Monarchs ... Help? (Quite Long)

    I am beyond frustrated trying to find a gardening message board that is usable*, so I am turning to the always-reliable CoTH community.

    Clarify ... I keep in touch with many of my friends that I don't see daily and am very glad to have texts. Much easier for me than phones.

    Also, my BF and I text a couple times a day, but not in...

    Just don't do it.

    You were right to communicate your needs/desires and I suspect he was playing games, too.

    You're not sabotaging yourself at all, you are weeding out the people that wouldn't...

    This is why I compose posts in my head and by the time I get to a computer I rethink the wisdom of actually writing them.
