    I still remember my roommate coming out to the car to make sure you weren't an ax murderer!

    It's funny, but in a roundabout way, I'm back to my childhood dreams. I was a weekly lesson kid who swore up and down she was never going to show, just ride for fun. That kid got talked into a horse...

    Marriottsville has a waiting list for lessons, so not an option if the OP wants to start right away. (Renn, one day we will steal you despite the horrific commute!)

    Echoing what Renn said. If you're in the southwest area of Baltimore you may be happier driving into Howard County to ride than trying to make it up 695 into actual Baltimore County for lessons,...

    I've been really impressed with the Treadsteps - a couple of my girls have them and they've held up beautifully.

    I stretched my last pair (twice, they definitely shrink back down if you put them...

    I ordered mine at the end of December, was told it would be end of April that I received them. They arrived May 10th, which wasn't too far off. Wore them for 8 hours of teaching/riding the first day...

    Did you turn pro as soon as you aged out of the juniors? Or were you an amateur for a while before you decided you wanted to be a professional?

    I absolutely will second Renn's recommendations for Featherdown and Caves. I'm slightly biased since Mehdi's been one of my trainers since I was a kid, but I don't think you get much better than...

    If you were going to leave him here in MD I'd suggest that perhaps Tip wanted to be Caviar's new bff. ;)

    That said, I think it would work out just fine. Your guy's pretty much exactly what...

    Agreed! My students and I had a great time today, thanks so much for putting on such a fun show!

    With the Columbia Classic and HCHSA Medals this weekend, there was no way we were making it to the show, but now there's a chance it'll work into the schedule after all!

    I don't really buy much from anyone at this point, but I did buy the Dover scrim this summer. When I placed the order, it showed as a "backorder" item. I finally emailed them about 3-4 weeks after I...

    I keep wanting to go, but it's always the same weekend as one of the local medal finals. Hopefully next time!

    I'm currently horseless as far as ownership/direct responsibility goes. My current horse belongs to the farm, and therefore the BO is the primary where he's concerned. The farm as a whole is...

    I'm actually in the process of setting up an IRA. (Insert head spinning here.) I don't think I'll mind teaching in my old age, but I may not want to run like the crazy person I currently am!

    That's how we play it too. Owner of horse gets lease fee (normally the BO, but not always), Trainer gets coaching fee, and whoever drove gets the hauling fee.
