    I'm really not sure how you can be FORCED to go to the ER if you are not a) unconscious or b) involuntarily committed for mental health reasons. I guess the show could say "you can't show here any...

    True dat, if they all compete and don't trip and don't get injured before, and don't get DQd after the fact. But I really did think that Montano had a shot at something if one of those three didn't...

    Well...with some hiccups from time to time in track and field. For example, this year we are sending a fairly weak women's 800m team to the US - two of the favorites for a medal tripped and fell...

    I do feel a bit bad for some of the others who tried but didn't make it. But...

    I guess it doesn't really bother me that they're using mascara - as long as it's removed afterwards, I really can't see it being a risk to the pony.

    But it just strikes me as odd - I'm not sure...

    Russell Frye? Or Russell Frey? If the latter, it's a huge loss. (If the former - quite possibly a huge loss also, but I'm sadly not familiar with the name). Either way, my thoughts to all who...

    It's not anthropomorphism to observe that some horses love to run and jump, the way some dogs love to chase sticks, and some cats love to chase tennis balls. Do the horses understand the nature of...

    But there's also an argument that the safety committee should be independent from the course committee, to maintain independence.

    I use the tape on myself regularly (competitive distance runner), and am happy with the results. I've never tried it on a horse, though, and don't quite get how it would work. On humans, the tape...

    I do too!

    And Ward's career with Rothchild tripled my respect for Ward. Here is a horse that is clearly NOT Ward's normal type of ride, and yet he learned to meet the horse halfway and create a...

    When I was showing in the late 80s and early 90s, it was December 1. I think it was Kelley Farmer's bad fortune to have an early December birthday, so she lost a junior year.
