    Oh sorry, I phrased that badly. What I mean is the job has elements that most people would consider major negatives, and I'm worried about expressing my enthusiasm for the job (which is very real)...

    Didn't read everything, but why not find a cheaper summer program? I'm all for going abroad, but that doesn't mean you need to do it this way. I went on a 5 week summer program through my college,...

    I've only had a fitter out once, but she did have me get on and ride. I'd ride, she'd adjust, I'd ride, she'd adjust, until it was how she wanted it. You could probably get away with someone else...

    No rules that I know of where I ride. I've even seen some of the kids (13ish) riding alone. However, there are several houses on the property and someone or other seems to go by every hour or so. ...

    I think it's unfortunate, but it's done so the school can give more money to the "important" men's sports. Yeah, it's sexist, but not in the way it looks at first. I infuriates me how much money...
