    Been there, done that.

    My house is a manufactured home, and for the amount we spent fixing it up we could have replaced it with a brand new one. It was the right square footage, but more...

    I think that when it comes down to it, cnm161 had one of the best points of the whole thread.


    I see positives and negatives both in modern dressage and in "old school." If anyone else has read...

    You never known, some sort of trade could happen or something.... :D

    I don't believe the story that this horse was 6 and is now 7. Open knees, grew 3 inches and expected to grow 2 more after age 7?

    Yes, double up on drug store hairnets - but also make sure they are NOT lined up. More coverage that way. :)

    But, heck, an awful lot of competitive dressage has that same amount of movement in the piaffe. I remember the Alex Gerding video showing some which he argued should not have even counted as piaffe...
