    We are appropriately reminded by the experts to STOP FIXATING ON THE HEAD. That is the kind of thinking that leads to seeking the right "frame" or "head set" at any cost.

    Fixate, if you will, on...

    No, she dressed appropriately. But in every other respect... identical. I mean separated at birth. :eek:

    So I found a photo. She's changed her hair style and toned down the makeup (it was about...

    Nope. I had an orthopaedic surgeon who looked exactly like Britney Spears. It would have been funny if it weren't so frightening. :lol:

    This essay, by newspaper columnist Leonard Pitts is one of my favorites. It's old, but still completely right on.

    I didn't see it either. Is it a hind leg? Sometimes when something like that occurs, it can be a reaction to a leg (spur) aid. He could be lazy on that side and she needs to get after him a little...

    That expression has been a thing for a while now. I remember reading a novel entitled "The Ask" a few years back. It was about a professional fundraiser who was trying to land a large alumnae...

    Thank you! I heard about the documentary and found that it is out of stock on Amazon.com and it is unknown when or whether the stock will be replenished.

    I just finished "Renegade Champion: The Unlikely Rise of Fitzrada" which I first heard about on this board. It is the story of a talented Army horse that was drilled until he soured and became...

    I love that the USA has some up and coming international caliber dressage riders! Laura Graves, Adrienne Lyle, and Heather Blitz are all spectacular.

    I suppose there are a few legitimate reasons to use an alter (avoid embarrassment on personal issues being one.) But otherwise, I think that people who use alters have, way, way too much time on...

    Merriam Webster lists both words as "equal variants." But who is he to say?

    My pet peeve at the moment is "LOOSE" instead of "LOSE."

    Like, it makes me LOOSE my mind! :disgust:

    Ironical was the adjectival way of saying it, last I knew. But I am an ironical b*tch, anyway.

    Pay no attention to what they say the tree size is. There is no uniform standard.

    If you are on a budget, you may want to look at a Duett. They are reasonably priced even new.

    It depends on what you mean by "works." If the saddle fits (doesn't pinch or cause pressure anywhere), and it is just slipping forward, use a crupper. I find cruppers to be really helpful on horses...

    Enough so that I feel that I *know* you as a person from reading your posts on COTH, and that even when I don't agree with your opinions, I respect them.

    Yes. Kraukkauer published an e-book called "Three Cups of Deceit" debunking Mortensen's story about getting lost and being helped by villagers who he wanted to pay back. He also uncovered all of...

    Because the person was so motivated to promote CP or rebut criticism of him that she joined COTH to do it. What this person says, in my view is less credible in and of itself.

    I do not know CP...

    But it is not okay for me to question the credibility, reliability or accuracy of a post? Is that what you are saying?

    You are right. And no, COTH doesn't require credentials. But a first time poster? Heck, it could be CP himself for all we know. Or a PR firm hired by him.
