    I don't understand what "Forward Seat" means, nor why it belongs in a conversation about collection (and the troubles therein...

    Commiseration for your situation, but as an aside, "stir the ppt" has been the best way to describe how my management prefers to communicate the same information over and over again that I've ever...

    Sigh.



    If we're being pedantic, I'm sure you meant "disdains".

    Just for giggles, I did a quick google of the SRS to see what they call their riding:

    I mean, I know _my_ piaffe moves all over the place. But the truly elite rides have piaffe that is (or is nearly) on the spot.

    We're all watching the same video, but we're seeing different things.

    Regardless of where heads are relative to bodies, the piaffe is (as mentioned above) truly half-steps given the amount of...

    I'm in the "always on the left" camp. I tend to be a bit of an anxious person at horse shows, and reducing the number of moving parts in my day helps to reduce some of the panic flareups....

    I think part of the problem is the natural cost tradeoff between trained and talented vs. age, and that the best horse for you RIGHT NOW is not always the "best" horse you can afford.

    There's the...

    I was mulling this over yesterday, and have developed a theory. Brace yourselves.

    Assuming everyone's fully braced:
    I've been told by multiple upper-level riders that the big ground-covering...

    They're real medals! You have to pay, of course, if you want to get them ($25 processing fee), and they're awarded at the USDF Annual Convention-- or mailed to you, if you cannot attend. You can pay...

    Seems like Clyde/Hackney is a pretty popular cross in Canada-- it's got a name. Commercial Horse? Something like that. A woman at my barn has one who is probably the perfect lower-level horse for an...

    Anecdotal, but my pony (14.2 GRP with some Welsh, now almost 8yo) has had a long history of doing well barefoot. However, when I started to show her more seriously, I noticed she was a bit...

    The solution to 18th-century-vaguely-British-dress fatigue is... 18th century vaguely Spanish dress?

    Guys. Hot sake is basically the ultimate in hot alcoholic beverages. Here's what I do:

    1. Buy sake. No need to get fancier than Gekkeikan.
    2. Heat sake. Microwave in a mug if you're lazy, or buy...

    The first instance of "eleventy" is in JRR Tolkien's 1954 Fellowship of the Rings, describing Bilbo Baggins' 111th birthday ("eleventy-first"). So it's a pretty serious case of "what once was old is...
