    I'm not convinced this would ruin my footing. Why do others think it would ruin theirs? We gallop through water complexes. Yes, the sand would be disturbed, but the subbase, if properly installed...

    Regarding a problem in the original post, Copernicus was the first to recognize that the earth moves around the sun. Galileo briefly thereafter, and due to his own independent observations,...

    Brilliant! Or, perhaps, <gasp> shut your trailer ramp. If you foxhunted, you would do this as a matter of course. Guaranteed 30 roving dogs every hunt.

    “We, the unwilling, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.”

    My least favorite cheapie habit is people who will go to the tack trailer or tack shop, try on the item for size, then order it online because it is $2 cheaper. So thoughtless if they want to have...

    When I hear that phrase, I get a mental image of going to Michael's (hobby shop) and having a picture framed. Then I wonder what that has to do with riding horses, then I picture a horse literally...

    I was in Ireland taking a jumping lesson with a coach who I had never met. After warm up, he asked me to trot the cross rail and stop, then turn around and canter the cross rail and stop. After...

    I've read this entire thread and given this some thought. At first I was thinking about just staying with the armband in light of the fact that I own it and using it would require no effort or money...

    I loved the movie too, especially when, instead of smacking the lady who had the 13 stallions or whatever, which many of would have done, he just talked frankly to her to the point where she realized...

    LauraKY, I'm usually right there with you, but where did that bit of pessimism come from? Poor dear.

    For me, the Universe is God. I feel it everywhere and am always in connection with other living things. I think this is what is meant by "whenever two or more are gathered...". Those two could be...

    I prefer a rope halter to a chain. Effective but less sharp bite and immediate release. YMMV.

    I think I love your trainer and I'm so impressed with you for carrying that very good insight forward.

    I don't know that integrity was ever mentioned, but horsemanship and common sense issues are at play here and this is a teachable moment. Empathy is good in moderate doses. Then add some...

    Offering insights into how to avoid another tough weekend like this is not "kicking someone while they are down". Frankly, that is just silly hand-wringing. Compassionately speaking the truth is the...

    Ok, good piece of information, Bogie and SNL, thank you. Without that, I had to think she was a little nutty. Sorry CandC, honest, ignorant mistake. Carry on.

    Trak,
    I like men a lot. My dad and grandpa were great and I'm married to the same guy for 20 years. But I have to say that the "70% of divorces being initiated by women" statistical fact may be...
