    Oh, please. Now you're just being a pain. Literally no one here thinks that is okay. USEF does not think it is okay. But if no one questioned it 19 YEARS AGO and she has not competed since then,...

    Not that I want to encourage this to continue as this is obviously some sort of personal vendetta - but I don't know anyone with a life membership so I don't know the answer to this question.

    My horse decided last spring to develop a bit of a head shake. I now ride in a ear bonnet from April to October. For us, it was changing the narrative.

    I have the Alta and I feel like it is okay when it comes to riding. I have checked it after a run versus riding and I don't feel like it overly torques the step or calorie count. But I really ride...

    I do the knotted up low pony tail that sits just below my helmet, but doesn't really touch my neck for everyday schooling. I use one of the those hairigami contraptions for showing right at the...

    I have known a couple of stallions over the years that run the gambit from you wouldn't know they were a stallion to the one that had to be hot wired into his stall.

    I get it - you're pissed about the wait. You've insisted a couple of times that it is a resource allocation and should not be hard to do.

    I had one several years ago and if I remember correctly there was no real identifying marks on the saddle other than various serial numbers. I had the advantage of having the original buyer's name,...

    I agree that it has been eye-opening for me as well. I have been surprised at the support for the potential BO who feels it is her place to blab that so-and-so came to look at the barn. If...

    I can understand OP's desire for confidentiality. Current BO is a good friend. If OP does not end up with a new job/moving barns, why even put the thought into the head of the current BO?

    See, and for me? Even an hour either on the trailer or tied to the trailer for my ADHD horse would be a disaster. I won't show without a stall.
