    This is a good time to scrap the whole expensive, resource-consuming pageant. It's never going to serve it's purpose as a true national championships.

    A real security expert weighs in:

    Reaction to the Sony hack is 'beyond the realm of stupid'

    And now that's how he likes to let a horse warm-up. Here's a video of my little mare demonstrating exactly how to tap a rail.



    Mike has heaps of respect and admiration for Lucinda. That...

    Oh, definitely agree with you, fooler. :)

    This rider did look very similar to LG on XC. It's not a style you see very often (maybe it's more old-fashioned?) and when it's not quite successful,...

    I disagree with this idea of 'implied straightness'.

    When I rode with her, there were no straight lines available, it was wiggle-wiggle-wiggle to and between fences. The total lack of space to...

    Thanks. :)

    My little mare is about as strong-minded as a horse can get. She is all about doing her job well. But when you've instilled 'always straight' into them from Day 1, even she gets...

    If you value straightness, you might reconsider.

    I understand that there are many who like her clinics, but her basic values are so different from mine (and to those of the instructors whose...

    How so? I quoted your post, which was quoting the BoG statement, although it does not say so outright -- but that is easily inferred from the immediately preceding post. Even in my quote of your...

    This isn't going to happen.

    If an issue leads to 'hundreds' of emails in a relatively small organization like the USEA, then it's clearly a big issue and warrants a wider discussion. But all...

    That made my morning. So funny, so true, especially when stated in Canadian nice-speak.

    I'm not sure I understand this. Maybe it's because the article is paywalled for VIPs only and, sadly, I'm no one's idea of a VIP. :D

    Those are cautionary words, if we're talking about horse training.

    (I don't know the trainer of reference, just reporting that my eyes bulged a bit when I saw this 'praise'.)

    Young Misty Kiss is now ensconced at JMP Farm, where she's sharing living quarters with Zizi. These two get along very well, and they're the same size. Misty would probably be very surprised to...

    I think my very useful pony was there, in the Prelim. Glenbaer said temps were in the mid 20s. F not C. I get confused when the mercury is that low.

    Congrats on your Saturday escapades. ...

    You either exaggerate or you slept in. When I checked the SoPi weather this morning, it was 18F, not a balmy 19. :D

    I admit I gloated a little bit. I'd been kicking myself for moving north when...

    A pelvis fracture can heal very nicely. Bone is good at that.

    Agreed. I don't do Facebook so hadn't seen her remarks. Very nice of Kadenz to dig that up for me.

    That said, I really do wish riders and owners would be assertive about the very real issues in...
