    Crotch-crunch. ;)

    Seriously, I think it's less of an issue than how you feel in it and how your horse goes in. I really really really hate being in a saddle that's too small - I feel trapped and...

    Hard to go wrong with KennedyCenter tix. Woolly Mammoth and Studio also both usually have good, not stupidly expensive theater options. Could pair the new play at Woolly with dinner at Jaleo or...

    There's a number of threads about law school and balancing riding - might do a search.

    The one key thing I would say is the question is not "can you" but "should you". It's absolutely possible...

    You might get on a shared load for $500 one way, but that's a little low to get to Ocala - I've seen prices closer to 700$+, though that was under higher gas prices. Check out USEA Area IIs FB page...

    There are a couple of posts in the Area 2 FB group offering rides - might be worth checking out.

    Great suggestions - whacking myself that we didn't think of an allergy test earlier. Vet's coming to do it tomorrow.

    Sent you a PM with the info for the rep in the Mid-Atlantic who may be covering for her.

    Others have had different experiences, I'm sure, but I had a virtually painless one with him when I found...

    Del Rey is amazing, but you're right that it might not actually be that much of an upgrade in terms of space/yard even with a pretty increased price due to the closer location. However, the ability...

    Honestly, it doesn't matter WHAT age you are. Wedding's a wedding, bride's a bride, and a wedding should be what you both want and what's realistically within your price range. There are gorgeous...

    As an eventer who has only very rarely dabbled in the hunter world, I confess I know very little about the hunters (except that they are (a) beautiful and (b) so much harder than it looks from the...

    The horse who is allergic to life

    This one's got me stumped. Fancy young OTTB, came off the track a couple of years ago. Since that time, has had ongoing, intermittent hives that we can't seem to either get to go away completely or...

    Second the thought to go through the eventers - many in NoVa have a bunch of really nice ones who may not want to be event ponies but are often quite fancy. In NoVa, in addition to Sharon, I would...

    I always do what LH suggested: pull blood and hold it, but don't run it unless we see a change in the horse once it's home and settled in. I've always been comfortable that I would have recourse...

    We put down our grand old dog at the age of 14+ last fall after he pretty consistently couldn't get himself up and was losing his appetite. For us, in consultation with our vet, we made the decision...

    So, there's a lot between you and the dream, no? And I bet it seems pretty daunting. But is there a way to break some of that down into more manageable sized chunks? For example, do you have any...

    Y'all are great! I don't think I've ever seen the little tab on the back of the snap, but will look carefully. Will also try a piece of string if the zipper has a hole. Heck, last weekend I was...

    Oh gosh, I loved watching that little horse go. He and Sara were such an inspiring pair, and they both looked like they just loved XC more than breathing. So sorry to hear this; condolences to all...

    When the Zipper Won't Stay Zipped

    So many jokes here...but leaving those for the professionals in the forum, hoping someone has a viable solution or suggestion:

    I have a pair of lovely, perfectly broken in tall boots (Ariats, if...

    I think both formats have their merits. In a one-day, I can see the benefits to running SJ before XC, as it's much quicker (you can schedule SJ start times) and you only have to warm-up once for...
