    Why not just go all out? :D

    I am also leery of air vests because of the loud noise they make when they inflate ... If I have a near miss type situation and become unseated, the last thing I need is a loud "pop-and-hiss"...

    I have a pair or muck boots that are about 3 years old now if I remember right. They are the heavier, "field" (hunting style) boot rather than the regular "tack classic" muck boots ... Mine are...

    This is something that makes me cringe every time I go to one of the hunter/jumper shows in my area. Most of them are local, unrated shows and the jumper classes they offer are usually 3' and under,...

    I agree. Looking at the photos there is no way that she could have caused a mark that low on the mare's side with her spur. It has to be terribly frustrating for her, not only that she didn't get to...

    As with most problems over fences, this sounds like it isn't a jumping problem, it's a flatwork problem. Very few green horses truly "find their own spot", but the ones that are balanced and...

    I can only imagine what a member of the general (non-horsey) public would have to say about this!

    I wonder if they are shipped in "discreet, plain brown packaging" :lol:

    I think "unorthodox" horse names are cute ... And I'm 100% certain horses don't care what we name them as long as we treat them with care and respect. They don't speak English or read Urban...

    Congrats!

    Nice videos as well ... I like seeing what the lower level courses (e.g. the ones I would be doing) look like outside the US!

    I love that you have a horse named Dingaling :winkgrin:

    He's adorable!

    Now that Paget's has been cleared by the FEI of wrongdoing, I wonder if there will be any retractions of statements by those that were quick to throw him under the bus when the news first came out...

    I've met both stupid conservatives and stupid liberals. Neither side of the political spectrum has a monopoly on idiocy.

    I'm pretty sure Ainsley saddles aren't being made anymore, but my old saddle was an Ainsley jumping saddle. It was made in England and while it was not on the level of Devoucoux, etc. (which was no...

    My best would probably be the guy that left me alone in a cabin in the woods with his baby and his buddy's mom and went out archery hunting...on our 3rd "date."

    A little professionalism goes a long way ...

    On the other hand, unprofessional behavior can damage a business's reputation beyond repair, regardless of how good the product or service is.

    Don't lengthen your stirrups ... That are definitely not too short. In fact, if anything I would say they are a half hole on the long side.

    Do lots of trotting and cantering in a half seat to...

    Apparently, I'm well suited to wrestling, judo, and squash ... None of which I have ever actually participated in.

    And less suited to shooting, lawn bowling and long distance athletics ... Hmm ......

    With all due respect, OP, rose colored glasses are exactly what you are viewing this horse through... That you and this horse will have a majikal, special connection straight out of a Walter Farley...
  22. Favorite gloves for wet/slippery reins?

    I'm looking for a pair of gloves that will give me a good grip on standard rubber reins, even when wet.

    I usually don't bother with gloves, but during today's jump school, little bay horsie was...

    The thing that blows my mind is, most of the people I know that are selling them and having "wrap parties" are my co-workers, and have medical training ... And should know that majikal fat melting...
  24. What's up with people advertising on their social media accounts?

    I'm not talking about actual ads that Facebook publishes, or people posting that they have a horse or car or other item for sale, but what is the deal with people posting canned Facebook statuses...
