    I'm bingewatching this show (see: "What do you do when your SO isn't home?" thread). AND WHAT ON EARTH IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE.

    That is all.

    I don't have clinical depression (that I know of), so take my experience with a grain of salt.

    I DO, however, occasionally have to talk myself into doing things I know I enjoy-- walking my dog,...

    This might be the perfectionism talking, but I see some conflation of "striving to be better" with "having to be the best". I'm on the OP's side of the fence in this conversation. I want to be the...

    I've got one! Or half of one. His sire was a Danish GP jumper, and his dam is DHH. As Crash Helmet mentioned, his biggest weakness was his tendency to get upright in the neck with the hocks out...

    I dunno. It took me nearly 18 months (maybe longer, but I've blocked it out) to really start to gel with my Hanoverian gelding, and he ended up being one of the best horses I've ever sat on. I...

    A couple years ago I saw a horse priced at/near $175k. 10 yrs old, trained to 2nd level. I guarantee you that was a case of "Honey, I have her for sale, but nobody's interested!"
