    My point is that no one at the top of the sport "pays their own way". They all have financial backers (which are different than sponsors), whether it is parents (typical for the young up-and-comers,...

    The latest twist in this thread (re: riders paying their own way) has been eye-opening for me. I didn't realize that top young riders being funded by wealthy parents was unique to one specific young...

    i agree with vxf11, but in a more general sense. Kids just aren't riding ponies for as long as they used to ride them. The ponies just aren't as popular with regards to a long-term goal as they once...
  4. I read so many posts on this forum like this one...

    I read so many posts on this forum like this one - beginner trainers who get frustrated with students who don't get the "feel" part of riding horses, and I just don't get it.

    I really feel that...
  5. How does everyone know so much about Reed's life?...

    How does everyone know so much about Reed's life?

    And I wouldn't call her riding dismal. She's obviously having a tough time lately, but she's had her fair share of good results too. Isn't she...

    Oh sorry, I responded thinking you had never been there. Devon is the most fun time of year for me and my daughter - good luck and have fun no matter what you decide to do!

    Hunt teams will definitely be a simpler and lower course.

    It's the "high stress" environment that is really "HIGH STRESS". I think you said the Young Jumpers go in the morning? Devon in the...

    vxf111 is not exaggerating - I can't think of a better way to describe it. Best of luck and have fun!

    Nope, I grew up under the philosophy that CHILDREN should be seen and not heard, so there were no gender distinctions. And I'm all grown up now anyway and I'm capable of having my own thoughts and...

    Look, I really don't think you are an asshole. I just don't understand how little irritations like this end up staying on people's radars long enough that they remember them to the point where it...

    I kind of stopped following this in the last few days because I just find it so horrible, but I still find myself thinking about the families of the people on that flight. I just can't imagine how...

    Sorry, I must have missed the part where he stole the OP's paperwork and held it hostage.

    I'm not saying that the OP was wrong to ask for her seat back. I am saying that as soon as the guy made it...

    A BULLY? Really? For sure the guy seems like a dick, but who cares? Dicks are everywhere. I prefer to remove myself from their presence as quickly as possible and get on with my life. I can't make...
  14. No I didn't miss anything. I really don't see...

    No I didn't miss anything. I really don't see that this is such a big deal. Grab your shit and sit somewhere else. Why be a big baby about it? This isn't first grade.
  15. When this type of situation has happened to me...

    When this type of situation has happened to me (and it has), I just grab my stuff and move to another seat. Unless there are assigned seats, it's just not worth making a fuss about it. Should he have...

    I don't understand why you are asking this question in reference to your co-worker when you say that you still lived with your parents at 25 (presumably you bothered them just about every day at that...

    Your first thought isn't a complete sentence, so I'm not sure where you were going with that.

    One of the recurring complaints on this forum is that, in much of the country, there simply are no...
  18. I don't get why it's such a big deal that lower...

    I don't get why it's such a big deal that lower level riders are able to compete at the same venues on the same days as the top professionals, whether it happens in other sports or not. On the plus...

    As a working adult who owns a horse, my jumping lessons take place two evenings a week with other working adults who are beginners and who don't own their own horses. I hack and warm up over small...

    I wasn't going to reply on this thread but OH MY GOD DID YOU REALLY TYPE THAT, LET ALONE THINK IT? What kind of human being can possibly come up with something like this?

    This is an awesome post - there is no better way to appreciate and be proud of what you've accomplished as a rider than to be able to see it in pictures! Congratulations to you!

    Honestly, if you are teaching beginners, you are going to have to realize that you are not going to turn out the next Beezie Madden with every student who walks through your barn door. And at this...

    This post, and the ones that suggest getting rid of the mileage rule are, in my opinion, the only practical, realistic ones offered on this thread.

    The suggestions to add even more specialized...

    I think it depends on the individual. Some (many?) people get into relationships and have to be joined at the hip to that person and be involved in every aspect of the person's life at all times....
