    I did this trail ride, which was a lot of fun. The vineyard is right off Rt 66, so it's a straight shot from DC.

    Thank you so much for the head's up! :) I just bought the groupon for an intermediate lesson. I can't get into horses that much due to my job, but it's nice to have a lesson every now and then :yes:

    Ditto to that. I'm a grad student at BC, and I pretty much gave up any hope that I had of riding in Boston. I don't have a car and there are no barns that are accessible by public transport. But,...

    ex-racer owner, I have the same problem as you when it comes to weight. I gained the Freshman 15 (or 20 in my case), and it still hasn't come off. I exercise more than most people, and I'm...

    Pilates for stretching, and running for everything else. Running is quite hard as far as cardio goes. It's great for core strength, and it really tones your legs. Swimming is another good sport...

    I rode with a lady for a year who only raised her voice ONCE, and that was because I was doing something stupid. Needless to say, I improved a huge amount with her. I'm a fairly sensitive person,...

    Morris seems like a good name for a dignified shih poo.

    A bit OT, but congrats on getting a shih poo. We have a shih poo as our family pet and he is such a sweetie. He does have the mind of the...

    I studied there in 2007 and did a trail ride in Centennial Park, which is in the middle of Sydney. It was great fun and I'd highly recommend it :)

    I was really glad that they had it on (and that the NBC station in Boston covered it). I put it on in the graduate student lounge, and I ended up chatting with two guys in the lounge about...
