    I'm an eventer, but I did do 2 years of IEA. I also was at a barn that considered IEA, so I guess I can speak from the perspective of 1 and 2.
    It is a great program for the kids and can bring in...

    Waiting to hear back on 3 potential buyers for my horse (one that probably won't work out, one that sounds like it might (!!), and one boarding school program that could be perfect for him!).

    I'm looking for almost the same horse as you, OP. Something with experience through Training and reasonably competitive (as well as a manageable vet check). My budget is around $15-20k as well, and...

    This year, find someone for my guy and find something new for me. Expecting that to take most of the season, but very excited to horse shop (right now at least!) and find what I'm looking for. In the...

    This is an accurate description of my experience. I was at a GREAT IEA barn last season and did learn a lot, but it was a much bigger time commitment than expected. There are weekly practices (at...

    Malibu Shark Attack!!
    It's worth it just to watch the animated sharks. Seriously.

    Squash, wrestling and judo.
    No shooting, lawn bowling (man, what IS it with eventers and lawn bowling?) or long distance for me.
    Just glad it didn't tell me rugby is a no go. I've wasted too much...

    I actually have a shirt with that on it! It really is such a fun game. It's not even so much as the actual playing gear that looks bad, but complete with the halo of frizz hair and the dirt and/or...

    I play rugby and have made some unfortunate post-game trips around town in knee high socks, short, tight rugby shorts and matching top, covered in bruises, dirt and turf. Just not a good look.

    Play a few more sports. I play rugby, but I would've love to have been a 4 season athlete with lacrosse, soccer, volleyball or even archery and track.

    CWD serial numbers?

    Long story short, I'm an eventer going through saddle fit hell (yet again) and rode in a friend's CWD today and fell in LOVE. Saddle fits horse even better and he hasn't gone better since I've got...

    Love this thread!
    My boy's 16 this year but everything's coming together. I'm figuring out how to ride him and even as his age starts to catch up to him and he requires a little more maintenance, I...

    I have a DSLR myself but I've always eyed the Sony NEXs! There's definitely something to be said for a camera that you can carry with you and never miss a shot.

    I have a Vanguard backpack and a...

    I have an '08 Tundra as well that I've really liked so far. It's definitely decent for a truck as far as gas goes, it was my mom's daily driver for a little bit when her car died, and it was doable....

    Yes! Granted, I'm still in school and snow can often mean snow day, but I absolutely love having food in the house, a fire in the fireplace and a warm bed when it's blistering cold and windy and...

    Smuggler's Notch is fabulous, spent a few winters there with a friend. Would love to go back!

    We use Facebook groups at my school, however, they're all student created. A lot of students (including me) create them with a few other people and add everyone in the class, and then everyone can...

    I agree with yellowbritches.
    Some people definitely 'get' feel immediately, as in it seems to come naturally and while technique and general knowledge will follow in their riding, there's always a...

    Saw that on EN too and was just thinking about that. :)
    My guy jumped flat back when I got him, but now they're slightly off to the side but forward. I can't think of many horses who jump with them...

    Crank (not cranked) noseband with a flash (not tight) for dressage, my guy does fine in that and is a happy dude.
    A flash for stadium and XC too, a little tighter but not much. Looking into digging...

    This is a wonderful post. :) The most well known therapeutic riding center in the area is Lovelane, though there's probably others I'm not remembering.

    So glad to hear some people are safe....
