    I've ridden in the TS and it works for 70-80 degree weather but after 80 I get too hot. I've heard from a friend who owns both that EIS is way better. Sadly, I have yet to try one on. :)

    If the speed air is anything like other GPAs--no. Make it comfortable from day one or you will be dealing with headaches every time you ride. Ask me how I know ;).

    This entire thread is disconcerting, knowing I recently ordered from Ogilvy.

    I do think others are being too harsh on the company, but at the same time, I don't believe Jack's response to the...

    I compulsively buy horse training books. I own at least two dozen but haven't actually read them all!

    I've ridden my horse in yoga pants/jammies on more than one occasion when I decided to go to...

    Word of mouth. With mine, I found out who the "pros" in the area sent their horses to, heard nothing but glowing reviews from others, and sent my horse there. I don't regret it--the guy put a...

    Things are going extraordinarily well with the baby. Had a pretty good ride yesterday. Had a really awesome first horse show--brought home three ribbons. Just a schooling show and had mostly western...

    I've loved the majority of the BM/BOs I've had over the years. In fact, I still talk to the manager I boarded with a year ago even though I chose to leave that barn due to price hikes. Good...

    I like the five year rule. And in the event of a fall or dropping the helmet I only replace if there's visible damage. Until I see some studies proving that a helmet's efficacy is compromise from a...

    Sometimes, yes. I seem to get off on the wrong foot with people, mostly online where vocal inflection doesn't exist. In person, acquaintances seem to assume my motivates are one thing when they are...

    As someone who has been there and bought a two-year-old, I highly suggest looking at green 3 and 4 year olds. There's a shocking number of unbroke horses at that age you could take on where you'd...

    Fresh greenie after several days off. No prior lunging (just hand walked around the arena once). Two small children with poor arena etiquette sharing the ring with me, and one other person doing...

    The consensus about Ogilvy is horse-by-horse. Like with saddles, no one half pad will work for every horse out there. A friend of mine swears that her Ogilvy makes her horse go better, and another...

    I had the worst funk last fall! Your head can really mess up your riding, and I think my head has been doing it for a long time but it was manageable until last year. What I do is I start with baby...

    Didn't get a chance to ride all weekend. :( Going out first thing tomorrow, though.



    The PNW snuggled up near the cascades. :winkgrin:



    Thanks! This is my first greenie and I'm super...

    I disagree.

    What's to stop the child from entering a cycle of lying to avoid punishment? I don't think threats are a good method of discipline, and I don't think the number of hits matters all...

    I didn't muck stalls at either barn, but I did other things. I don't think additional/number of chores matters that much in relation to hourly pay. I've had three job which required stall mucking and...

    I always come back. It was my dream career growing up. I deliberately gave up on it, pursued other things for a few years and then realized none of those things made me as happy. Still hope that I...

    He has a point about house size, which is something I'm particularly stingy about due to new developers exclusively building massive 2500+ sqft homes on tiny lots in an area where homes are already...

    I'm vehemently anti-spanking. Parenting books shouldn't be condoning it (it's your business if you choose to, and most mean well so I try not to judge).

    I was spanked, and I was an example of the...

    Some interest me, others bore me (just don't click them!), but none really annoy me except when the OP is asking for something that doesn't exist and won't back down. I feel there are far more people...

    It doesn't quite sound fair to me at all, which I think you're realizing as others have chimed in.

    Free board situations need to have a lot of the right ingredients to work out. A successful...

    We did short rides to the vet for kitty weigh-ins, which did seem to help.

    Pheromone collars are not a permanent solution but they can help tone down absolute terror for anxiety-ridden kitties. We...

    A rescue in my home town ended up closing down for hoarding and care quality. I don't know if it was a law enforcement shut down, I just know that they did get in trouble for dehydration and the next...
