    Just a little "food" for thought: fat people are already aware that they are fat. They are aware that being fat causes physical issues. If they are coming to you for help of some sort and you...

    I live in a very nice area and the police absolutely recommend leaving outside lights on all night. They even send out e-mails reminding people to do this. There has been a significant upswing in...

    I ride in the rain all the time, there are no water spots on my saddle. I clean it regularly with glycerin and condition with Lederbalsam. It was oiled when it was new. Don't even worry about it,...

    Yes I have twice. I ordered the Turkey Breasts and got several as they are easier to deal with. Turkey was perfect and the sides were all really excellent. I would do it again in a heartbeat. ...

    Sounds like you are working too hard. You don't need to lift yourself, the movement of your horses hindquarters is all the lift you need. It's more a process of relaxing your body more and waiting...

    Leg swing can also occur as a result of shifting your grip to your thighs and knees, effectively bringing your lower leg off the horse. Just another thought. Remember your thighs should lay on the...

    For what it's worth every hunt has their own interpretation of the rules so don't think what you read on here is going to apply at the hunt you're going to. When in doubt contact the hunt secretary...
