    Was a Dover this weekend. The saleslady noted that the Charles Owen satisfies the European standard, which is more stringent than the US standard. Clearly, dressage riders compete in CO helmets. I...

    I would worry that, even with a mild fall, a small blood vessel in the brain could tear. That is why (even without being on blood thinners) if I fall I avoid aspirin or other NSAIDs for days. Even...

    I cannot see that. The impact of the vest going off being worse than the impact of falling??? Where is the reasoning?

    You recognize the tremendous risk. You have to protect yourself - every body part. Helmet every day. Yes to air vest, yes to the best helmet in the world, yes to a packer.

    Recovering from a concussion and Luminosity are two very different things. You need to be under the care of a neurologist who specializes in concussion. Forget about all the other stuff! ...

    Have you discussed your desire to ride with your hematologist? Has the cause of your PEs been discovered? The advice probably depends on what kind of disorder you have and what kind of...

    I read this technique on TOB.
    Boots are 'broken in' the second you flex your ankles (take one step) in them. When you first put your boots on, have someone hold a (steel) ruler about the tab in...

    I think the problem with these is that it does nothing for helping you strengthen or stretch the right muscles, and create muscle memory. Proper exercises will help you create the ability to hold...

    Not uncommon. Get thee to a pelvic floor physical therapist for a physical exam and the best exercises - this person will make sure you are doing them right. This process requires a pelvic exam...

    If you are not a good match, look into live donation to a stranger. This can sometimes mean that this stranger's relatives or friends match your friend, or that there are multiple people in a chain...

    Are you talking about something that helps make tracings, or the tool that they used many years ago that was metal, articulated in five or six places longitudinally and and "arms" that articulated as...

    I collapsed my left side for ever, until a physical therapist diagnosed (by my sending photos of this problem posting) and tested my quadratus lumborum strength on the left. Try this - take a...

    I switched after my second cervical fusion. I do miss the jumping, but not the thought of paralysis. That fear also influenced my choice of horses - Lusitanos, specifically individuals known for or...

    I am an aging ammie, and am spending tons of time working on getting the footfall thing, and using knowing it to accomplish different things. For me, "thinking" about foot placement leads to...

    Interesting - insofar as last year went - the booing was because the moderator did not let the panelists speak. The moderator spent a great deal of time promoting his agenda and his site, instead of...

    Glad you enjoyed it! But for the price we paid, it should have been geared to the audience, not to some hoped-for TV or internet audience. That was what was so galling! The moderator actively...

    Somewhere I read about how to create the perfect look in dressage boots. It involved creating one wrinkle - just as you have it. SO that is what my boots look like, too.

    I was there last year. At one point, the audience got so angry at the moderator for his blatant commercialization and refusal to let the clinicians talk freely that we began to boo and tell him to...

    I finally fixed mine - it is the quadratus lumborum that is weak and so hard to find! Side planks are good, but the best exercise I have found uses a stability ball. Lie with your neck, head and...

    Yes, those are the ones I had. I can't say whose they were. I liked them until it became too easy for the single lace to slide through the holes. Then I had straight reins with number of bunched...

    I had a pair of reins that were just leather, with one leather "string" running in and out through holes in the reins. It did make "waves" and I liked them until I found that they began to slip too...
