    So much stuff!...

    Yes, I have it, but it's very mild. The ringing in the ears is very faint and mostly I don't even notice it. The vertigo does not, in general, impair my daily activities or interfere with my riding....

    I get that you can't find a place to board that you like. I get that it's nearly impossible to find good boarding situations in some places. I once lived in such a place.

    But this is something...

    I'm pretty sure that typical working student arrangements do not meet the criteria to be classified as "work" under the labor laws.

    The thing is, for every young rider for whom an opportunity like this leads to a bright future, there are many more for whom it ends disastrously.

    I can't really offer advice because I don't know...

    I once fell off following a cascade of events that started when the mule was standing still. And spent 2 days in intensive care. Thank God I was wearing both a helmet and a protective vest at the...

    Wait. What? You're saying that you don't feel that way? That you think it's OK for strangers on the internet to comment on other people's weight and give them unsolicited advice, all of which they...

    Last time the helmet argument came up in the western forum, one of the non-helmet wearers used the argument that if you were going to wear a helmet while riding, then you should also wear a helmet...

    You're wasting your time talking to Palm Beach about helmets. We've been down this road several times on the western forum.

    In my mind I'm split about 50-50 on whether or not she actually believes...

    COTH Rule # 237: Do not bring reality into a good trolling trainwreck.

    The proper response to that post is "I know a guy who can get you a fake ID. Maybe you should pick up a wig and some...

    Not necessarily. I own a rental house and the contract says that after the initial 12 month lease is finished, it becomes a month-to-month contract that can be terminated by either party with 30 day...

    There are things your friend could do. Put up no trespassing signs and call the police when the neighbors come on the property. Go see an attorney and get him to write a letter to the neighbors...

    Two thoughts.

    First, you haven't provided enough information. What role, exactly, do the owners have in the day-to-day care and management of the boarding operation? Because the situation is...

    I do not know personally, but have heard that the Fabtron Lady Trail is less of a chair seat than many others.

    Also, I once saw the Fabtron Cross Trail saddle (not a synthetic) described as the...

    My credit unit does, as long as it's not too old. (I don't remember how old because I ended up going with a new trailer, so deleted that info from the memory banks. :) )

    I just got 4.25% on a...

    True, if you're talking about highly competitive show barns. However, the key is how the trainer handles those mothers. You want to ride with a trainer who firmly manages Show Moms and clearly...

    I learn something new with every experience. Added to my list after my last experience:

    How long has the boarding operation been in operation? If it's just a brief period of time, where was the...

    Different people have different expectations of what constitutes polite social interaction.

    The OP inadvertently double posted and didn't realize it or didn't know how to go back and delete one of them. So, people responded to both. The thread you're talking about was the one that developed...

    Agree. Pretty much everything beyond that first sentence was the kind of subtle fat shaming that is woven throughout public conversation on the subject. Fat shaming isn't just calling someone a...

    Well, I suppose it depends on how many mean girls hang around where you ride. :lol:
