    If my instructor MUST take a phone call during my lesson, she excuses herself, then adds the minutes she is on the phone to the lesson. If that is not possible she reduces the fee to the time spent...

    While I would be cautious around any breeding stallion, I wonder if Secretariat got grumpier/more aggressive as he got older. I visited him in 1978 (when I attended the eventing World Championships...

    I remember thinking what a lovely, free shoulder Zenyatta has and what a dressage horse she would have made. She already was doing the Spanish walk in the paddock before her races.

    Well FWIW, I will be 70 in July and work full time and ride 5-6 days a week. Being that age doesn't necessarily mean you're feeble, tho doing that job alone would be chore for anyone.
