    I have had a lot of luck buying audio language-learning CDs to play while I was in the car. I use them to brush up on my high-school French, but I've also taught myself a smattering of Spanish and...

    My new girl, Sarah, is a 3/4 TB 1/4 Belgian draft. Whoever said look at the individual horse is right--Sarah really looks like a half draft, with solid bone and hindquarters; her full brother looks...

    Go. I know someone who died from a ruptured spleen. The dog and cat won't die if they go a day without food.

    Mother of God, please don't let ANYONE start to use a hunting horn! Sarah hates dressage, and loves to hunt--the moment she heard the call to hounds my claim on her attention would be gone! And if...

    I think it's cheating. I think the kid should be editing his work with help from his teacher.

    west5, great advice! Jesse, nice to meet you!

    Yes, writing well and getting published take a long time. I had a 9-year apprenticeship of freelance magazine work, magazine editing, and ghostwriting...

    JER, where do you get #3 above? Every publisher I know has editors that work closely with writers, plus they have copyeditors and publicists.

    OK, Caol Ila, that sounds more like it. Go read Writer's Guide from the library so you know how to format it, and send it out to some agents. Can't hurt. Then, once it's out of your hands, start book...

    Caol Ila, why? I don't mean any offense, I'm genuinely curious. Just because you've written a book doesn't mean you have to get it published. I myself have a number of what I consider practice...

    Oh, and standard agents get 15%, and are worth every penny, but run from those who charge you to read your work.

    I would take everything on the internet with a grain of salt.

    I've published 15 books through traditional publishers. Myself, I wouldn't self-publish, ever, but it depends upon your persistence,...

    My daughter's horse I would call a BN/N "packer" in that he will only stop if she does something colossally wrong--has never stopped xc below Prelim level. On the other hand he's a hot little SOB and...

    I think that most professional riders, who desperately want to make the TEAM, over-estimate how much most amateur riders care about who is on the team and how well they do. I loved attending the...

    I'm extremely short waisted and was trying to shove my boobs into a Charles Owen child's size large. It wasn't going well. Got fit for a KAN at the convention, and I love it. I've competed in it...

    Strengthening the fetlocks

    Ok, everyone. Beloved Sarah has strained her right hind annular ligament, which is a ligament that wraps around the back of the fetlock. Since she was never actually lame, just began refusing to pick...

    I just bought one of the Devon-aire conehead helmets. I had to go a size down from what I usually wear, but I'm really happy with how it fits. Wish it looked a little more "fashion-forward," but...
