    I know this is standard protocol, but I've never understood it. I would so much rather the walkers be right on the rail, than constantly having to dodge them. Everyone has a different idea what off...

    I hear you :). I didn't have an issue with my horse - I have more of a problem with him wanting to do two tempis rather than than the fours, but there are worse problems to have. I just happen know...

    I ended up skipping second level as I did not show for a whole season and by the next year we were showing third/fourth. I have scores for everything for my bronze and most of my silver except for...

    I would have to ask, what is slight damage to you? I had a very minor collision with my car last summer. All cosmetic, no mechanical or frame. But it is a Cadillac. Minor cosmetic was still $5k....

    I have the Solo with the long blocks. When I bought this one, the rep was at the barn with a trailer full of saddles. I sat in probably 12 saddles that day.

    Granted it was 18 months ago, and...

    I do. He wears the fleece for about 30 minutes prior to saddling, then I saddle him and then put the fleece back over the saddle. I then usually wait for about 15 minutes - let the pad warm up and...

    I absolutely hated the Enell. And the Under Armour. I use the Moving Comfort Maia. But, and this is big but, I am post reduction. I went through a lot to get these girls. I will do whatever I have to...

    But Mike is not having fun unless he's lobbing bricks :)

    Again, though - what do you (the general population) care what other people are riding in? So long as it is legal and does not harm the...

    My experience in the last couple of weeks is that the reps from the insurance companies on the individual market have a challenge understanding the rules and regs of their own companies.

    John didn't use to bug me. Now he does. And after this week all I could think of when they voted Alec off was "Stupid - now you're totally at the mercy of the three most annoying women ever. If...

    This was kind of my point earlier. Without multiple sets of xrays over time, it is hard to know exactly what the hocks mean. Yes, there are changes in the lower joint, but are those changes that...

    I like him much better on the video than in the original still photo. Agree with those who said doesn't even look like the same horse.

    I realize he is just coming five, but I would spend some...

    I normally don't wade into these discussions because they just piss me off.

    First - every time Fox News gets called Faux News, all I think is - wow, unless said person is using pretty much only...

    I've been happy with the results with the TSF girth - I have used one since late August and my saddle no longer comes forward onto the shoulder blades.

    I have not had an issue with my pad slipping...

    Mine is currently set at 62, 24/7. I wear a lot of layers in the winter. Forced air furnace, but needs to be replaced. Probably would have done that this year, but we are getting natural gas next...

    Most of the above is employer specific unless you are in a union.

    I am a salaried employee. Eight-hour workday? I haven't averaged one of those in years. Ditto time and a half for overtime. ...

    The problem is, from what I understand is that the mortgage is solely in her name - so letting him take the house would be giving him the full value (whatever it is) and her assuming ALL of the debt...

    I always check under whatever layer is on my horse before I pull it off to check his temperature. Though my horse apparently tends towards the "I'm never over-blanketed" theory. It can be 45...

    Didn't she do the commentary last year? I really enjoyed her then and found her very educational.

    And I do think that I predicted there would be a bit of "your saddle doesn't fit right" earlier in the thread.

    Alibi - I had a anatomical girth. A Nunn Finer. Most of the ones you are referring...

    I was using a 26" Nunn Finer without elastic, and the 26" in the TSF girth was too big. I ended up exchanging it (and that was totally without hassle - great customer service) for a 24".

    I haven't tried the saddle pad, but I have been using the girth for about 3 months. I've been happy with it for my horse that hates the saddle anywhere near his scapula, but has a super forward...
