    My trainer told be last year that I needed to make "good" mistakes, and that regardless of score she would not only be proud of me, but that it would reap benefits down the road.

    You are correct. I am old as dirt as far as show experience. Potayto/potahto I'm not happy with a 60%. ;-)

    Here's how I see it.

    The levels build on each other, so proficiency at a level is necessary for moving up if you want to fulfill the directives for each new level.

    I think I saw you trying that jacket on! It is amazing how "solid" it looks and how "sheer" it feels. If I didn't already have 2 coats I might be tempted.... :-)

    I have a custom AYR8 and love it. My coat is brown, so I got a brown velvet AYR8, with gold piping between the velvet and mesh center panels. The piping matches the gold piping on my coat collar....

    I guess my main fear is that it will look weird, grow in weird, etc. Has anyone ever done this?

    I have super long hair--down almost to my waist. As a result, it is often up in a pony or bun. I have these short (2-3"), soft wispy hairs that start behind my ears and go along my hairline at the...

    I have used a false tail on a horse with a sparse tail, and then again on my current horse when he yanked a bunch out on his water bucket snap (argh!--it's grown back, but took years!).

    JanM, I pondered that question many times when I was first trying to figure out what was "off" or "different" in our relationship.

    The bottom line is I love HIM. Warts and all. But he left us, and then changed his mind. It could change again a million times and that will kill me. If he told me that he was on board 100% no matter...

    That's exactly what I would expect/want from "joint" sessions as well. I just think he needs time alone to deal with stuff instead of involving me from the start. I just meant it's more of a "him"...

    I have no intention of moving in with him. I never really did, actually. He has a large piece of land and my notion was to build a barn/apartment on it--not just because "he has...

    Here's the story as brief as I can get it.
