    I use it wherever I would use another kind of oil. I have baked with it for recipes that call for oil (learned the hard way to met it first before sticking in the batted). I also will often throw a...

    Why is the horse stopping? Is it because you get ahead of the motion and jump ahead? An unscopey, timid, or less genuine horse is very likely to stop if that's the case, and your chances of coming...

    My brother went vegetarian as a teenager, so much later than the OP's daughter. As a teenager, he wasn't always the healthiest of vegetarians. In fact, we often called him a "pringletarian" as he...

    It's really more for the benefit of the scribe, not the judge. The judge may be finishing collective marks, but scribes are busy trying to match tests to riders, or figure out who is coming in so...

    I totally dig him. I've said it here before. I also admit to having a thing for guys that come off as a bit arrogant. But, I honestly feel like he is one of the most human guys there is and rely...

    Old habits die hard. My number always goes on the left. And I always go around the ring in the direction that will get the horse into the ring as best as possible. But, while I wouldn't stop...

    I have my old boss' bit collection. About 30 years worth of bits. And I keep adding to it. Purpose built bit boxes aren't practical for a collection that size. In olden days, the collection lived on...

    This is a very good point. If you are thinking you're going to get some soft, squishy calf skin thing like the French saddles, Berneys are not that! My old boss used to say that a Berney saddle would...

    If you are a newbie to subway travel and navigating strange places (cities) in general and are feeling phobic, get a taxi or car service. There is a learning curve to it and if you are at all...

    They greet me at the door, either inside or out, depending on where they spent my time away. I actually get a warmer reception from them than the dog, who is usually still pissed I left her in the...

    I love to cook and do so from scratch with some frequency. But, as a single person who lives alone and tends to stay quite busy between horses, job, friends, gym, etc, I don't do it every night (I...

    I went two years without TV and loved it. Moved in with a friend for about two years who insisted upon it, and had a serious love-hate relationship with it. I wasted a lot of time. I've now been...

    Placing my saddle (Which happens to be a County, and it was the rep who set me straight) farther back has made a big difference for my horse. Not necessarily in performance, as he's pretty stoic and...

    Can't imagine paying anyone to do a simple job that I can do quite well in 5-10 minutes.

    That being said, there are plenty of people out there who would. If you enjoy it, want to do it and want...

    Did you check in PA? I've known kids who've gone to University of DE and ridden in that West Grove/Kennett Square kind of area. Also the Fair Hill area, though I don't know of any place specifically....

    Much rather spend the money on something like Pentosan, Adequan, or Legend.

    I got the cookbook for Christmas and have been using it like crazy. LOVE IT. But most of it is way over her head, palate wise. Minus the peanut butter and banana muffins I made :)
