    Helloooo, That's saddleseat!:lol: A lot of times, it's not even in a circle, just up & down an aisleway.

    I'm perfectly happy doing endless trips up and down straightaway in pursuit of the perfect...

    Given the tantrum Obama threw when Netanyahu got reelected, it wouldn't be too hard to see him doing something this petty & vindictive.

    This is so true. When I worked in Newport News, VA, I often had to walk a half dozen blocks to go to another building. New News is a bit rough. Better since the crack house tenements were turned...

    Really it is. Ever see a painting of Bedouins running through the sand with their horses' heads down?

    I grew up around Arabs. Knew several people who bred them, went to lots of shows. Up-headed...

    Do you have a shoe repair store local? Pretty sure they can do what you want. I had a strip mall shoe repair guy fix my crappy set of harness multiple times, no big deal.

    I did upgrade the...

    If the kid is riding once a week - 2 falls in a month is every other lesson. After 4 years of riding, that's a lot. Many people can ride weekly and not fall off every other ride. I've ridden...

    If the trainer didn't tell them to move on, she'd be bad-mouthed for continuing to take the Mom's $$ even though the kid should be playing tennis. No win situation.

    Kid has had a couple bad...

    I remember an Andy Rooney rant on this years ago.

    I was expecting a good crappy relationship thread.

    I guess there's a reason why people think Dressage is for stuck up PITAs.

    Last time I went down to the (non dressage) barn, the asst trainer was riding in purple, Carhartt knock-off insulated...

    Passier Lederbalsam works pretty well on old leather. The spray saddle soap, white bottle blue label - can't think of the name, works too. I've had some old saddles and used a combination of oil,...

    I presume this is a fancy driving pony? If so, my vote is for long & up in a tail bag.

    If you're showing in harness there are some tricks to showing with a long tail, i.e. a strategically...

    You mean George W. Bush didn't run in 2008 or 2012? It worked for Obama twice.



    They should have learned that lesson when Terry McAuliffe beat Ken Cuchinelli in VA. They simply don't have...

    My BO had this happen last fall. He was breaking an absolute pig of a Dutch Harness Horse & had it hooked w/ his Haflinger.

    Somehow the pig got the bridle off, or partly off. He was going back...

    Could you get some light tan ones and dye them? Fiebings comes in colors.:D

    I've got a pair of Dansko's to dye this week. I think they'll get a lot more use if they're red.

    I just found this...

    I had one of these. Chain shank works wonders, it at least gives you some leverage to pry their head up.

    The next horse I trained to only graze after a pat on the shoulder, although she'd rather...

    This is similar to what they've got at where I ride. Unless you have concrete, I think those little wheels would get lost in the ground.

    They've also a small grocery cart that appeared from...

    Even with no stirrups, it's too much stress on my foot. The tendons that run behind the ankle bone are scarred up & very easily inflamed & aggravated - chronic tendonosis. If you google it & find...

    That's my little one to a tee. It's a wonder she never killed herself trying to find a safe place:

    - under the refrigerator (had to lay it down & pull her out by her tail

    Can't beat the foot traffic of a single mom and her two entrepreneurial teens (pharmaceutical sales) in the townhouse next to me.

    I'll confess to being the wimp here.

    After last summer/fall, I've concluded that my wrecked ankle can't take more than very light riding. I've done PT out the ying-yang, ice it all the time,...

    My witch of a first grade teacher gave me a stutter I still have decades later. She scared parents. Go with school 2.

    BTW, why would a 5 yro get a vote in anything of the slightest importance?

    Keep reminding yourself that you never owned the horse.

    Say it over & over. It was never your horse. Lots of people & kids have had horses or ponies sold out from under them. It happens when...

    There are trainers who star horses and trainers who finish horses. They are most often not the same person. Elite trainers are not always the right person to start a horse. My BO is great at...

    As a saddlebred person, I can tell that your horse options in VA are very different than Lexington, KY. You can do almost anything with a horse in VA, as long as it's not ride saddleseat.:lol:
