    Is the Facebook page, Medicine Horse, for them?

    I had donated a couple of times to Epona, but money has been tight. I hope she wasn't left holding the bag for a slew of rescues.

    The only jumping barn I was at had a closed ring during lessons. You knew when coming in that Tues- Thurs from 4pm to 8pm the arena was off limits. During nice weather you could use the outdoor.

    It's hard to be the child of a star. :D I'm glad they retired her, her performance seemed to be waning so better to retire healthy than to keep pushing for the old form.

    Years ago I had been having a great summer show season. Thought I was just super ka-duper. Then I rode for a tough judge. I was shocked at my score. Showed it to the clinician I had been training...

    Great points! And number 7, micro managing, yes! Unless something is unsafe, let the barn handle things in its own way. Just because it's not your way doesn't mean it's wrong.

    I don't know why women still change their name, it's so confusing when they change it back after the divorce and then change it again when they remarry.
