    Well, I'm here - barn 32 (von Henkle Equestrian). Where's everyone else? I managed to survive the warmup ring today... We'll see how it goes tomorrow.

    Perfection is illusory. Remember, it's not just you, it's the horse, too. Riding conpetently is hard enough without expecting perfection. Embrace the process.

    Srsly. Commission? Not. At. All.

    Make sure they "exchange" full value for that 3/4 of the horse. And I wouldn't be hanging around just for the reference - if she's game to try to screw...

    Well, the first, easiest, thing is to have a horse that you *know* is going to go over the fence - no hesitation. If that's not _your_ horse, the best thing is to find one to ride (lesson on, lease,...
