    Maybe when the system becomes completely automated it will be possible for a judge to comment on every aspect of every movement, but when you have a human being writing the comments, there is a...

    Bear in mind that some things are more important to some judges than others. One poster here shrugged off the mediums as not really necessary. But if you don't have them and you're riding in front...

    Not necessarily. As I moved up the levels, I sometimes had to "sit on my hands" to keep from showing at the level at which I was schooling. It sounds to me like the OP is schooling 2nd level (good...

    The rule of thumb (and a good rule, I think) is that one should be schooling at least one level above where one is showing. In my opinion, the OP is not ready to show at 2nd. She should be working...

    She is ruining the friendship. I understand (and agree with) her feelings about rescue, but she is treating you with disrespect. Maybe that's what you should tell her.

    "Barn policy, MY policy, is that no one uses anything that does not belong to them without permission. Unless you have blanket permission to use something that does not belong to you, the fact that...

    The simple answer is that everything is different at a show, and therefore there is no cause for alarm, while a change at home needs, at the very least, a good look. That's the simple answer. YMMV.

    You may not be as attractive to people who are attracted to your boobs before they're attracted to YOU. No great loss, IMHO.

    I know several people, and have read comments by many who have had...

    I'm not the least bit surprised you've never met Courtney King Dye, an Olympic caliber rider who did just that and wound up with a life-altering TBI. She wasn't wearing a helmet, and has since...

    Well, she hasn't posted on COTH since December 2013, so my guess is that an update, which I'd also love to read, is unlikely.

    Good luck, and post lots of pictures of the foal next year. :)

    Once upon a time I brought home two kittens live with me and my "I hate cats" husband. When we split up (me and the hubby, not the cats) ten years later, he begged me to let him take the one...
