    Will AAA cover the trailer? I was told explicitly that it would not, which is why we switched to US Rider. I suppose they could come get the truck, but what are you supposed to do with a trailer full...

    I have not heard this before, will have to look into it! DH had a major breakdown on the turnpike and got a tow from US Rider, but it was a few years ago and I can't remember if it was in PA or OH...

    Would doing a PT be helpful for you? I know they're not always available but if you have them offered in your area sometimes they can help ease the transition. Or as others have suggested, a...

    This would be the route I would choose. I loathe the turnpike but not as much as 95 during rush hour.

    This if you are heading out early in the AM before rush hour (I usually try and be on the road by 4 am). What kcmel suggested (turnpike via Shippensburg) if you're not planning on leaving early....

    Don't assume that a piece of tack is legal just because you've shown in it before. I can't tell you how many people I've seen get eliminated for an illegal dressage bit, once they finally get a bit...

    Yeah, I was about 10 weeks and it was ROUGH. I was fine until about 1/2 way around xc and the heat just knocked me out. My saint of a horse jumped everything, but I was basically just sort of...

    I tend to split the year into spring and fall seasons, with "spring" being from mid-January when we go to FL (love that this is essentially, for me, a job necessity that also allows me to ride :D)...

    Completely disagree. They are loud and annoying to everyone around you and, IMO, extremely inconsiderate, esp gas generators when trailers are parked close together and your neighbor must suck down...

    I count myself as super lucky in that DH is horsey and "gets it" (heck, for the first 5 years we were together I was the groom while he showed). We keep our horses at home but live next to a...

    Well Missy Miller was in the CCI2 not the 1, and she is shown as retired on the USEA results. I don't know that you would necessarily be able to tell from looking at the USEA results that she and...

    Event entries results aren't official. I'd wait and check the official record once it's posted to USEA database, might clarify? The discrepancy is weird.

    Another vote for Road ID. Love mine, wear it pretty much 24/7 (I run and live in a pretty isolated area in addition to riding alone a lot). I have the interactive one for reasons listed above- like...

    We finished 7th out of 14 teams! Just out of the ribbons, but not too shabby for the tiny bit of practice we had. And, most importantly, we had a blast and can now say we've ridden under the lights...

    This is bad coaching, bad riding and no rider accountability, plain and simple. Ponies on a steady stride can make time at training without "gunning it around"- at what point do we say that riders...

    Agree. I'm surprised it caused so many problems, I really think they were trying to soften the question by using the brush, though it sounds like it did not work as intended. It looks like an...

    It is extremely common for events to use the same portables at different levels. Portables usually are not built exactly to the level specs, but smaller, so they can be blocked up if needed or used...

    It's easier in a lot of ways than real brush, can be re-used, and in terms of feel, not much different. Brush comes in many different textures but the re-usable fake is becoming more popular. It...

    Just to clarify, she was airlifted. The helicopter landing site was staged off grounds, next to Roy's Deli, hence the need for brief...
