    I'm not saying you should change the name, I'm saying that you have to accept that people will mispronounce it and be OK with that and gracious when you correct them, no matter how many times. Don't...

    I like one syllable middle names but I don't like the name Leanne, so to avoid Eva Leanne _____, I say skip Anne. I don't like Jade at all for the reasons named above. Grace and Katherine would...

    Prize money at the lower levels increases the cost for everyone so that the winner can event for free. The money has to come from somewhere and that somewhere is going to be the pockets of the...

    At his age, 22, you're right to be concerned about the impact of significantly less/smaller turnout on your horse's soundness. I would just mention to her your concerns about the reduced turnout and...

    The OP has tried dealing with it herself. Roommate doesn't care. The OP took it to the appropriate individual, the RA, who did nothing. OP then took it a step further, and still nothing. Many of...

    If he has a single and they're still at your room-your roomate is not an otherwise good person
    If you had a midterm at 7:30am and they were up and at it in your room until 5:30am, that is incredibly...

    I think you're all giving the roommate a little too much credit. Her "obliviousness" is getting her exactly what she wants-a single room in which she gets to live with her boyfriend. She's passive...

    We've totally hijacked this thread at this point but to add to this. Why do I care about attracting European riders so that I can watch Michael Jung ride 3rd/4th level dressage, Level 4/5 SJ and...

    I looked at that field and with a few exceptions, it's filled with combinations that can't get it done at the highest level of the sport. Why is that worth a $50,000 eventing prize?

    This may sound crazy, but for something like this, I almost wish they'd just do dressage and stadium and while a particular rider/ set of riders are warming up/riding around the ring before dressage...

    1-Getting another lawyer is a good idea. It is the one piece of worth while advice you've gotten on here (other than "Breathe").

    I think we should keep the slaughter issue out of the discussion.

    It's a distraction to the real issue.

    You don't have to be pro commercial slaughter to support the carriage horses and...

    Actually, I'm American and I can understand why you were shushed. Particularly at finals. Loud noises that stand out are distracting and coming into an arena with loud noises can be scary for an...

    I will tell you why some BNT equestrians support the carriage ban.

    1-Most of them have never been to the stables.
    2-Many of them have never actually seen a carriage horse in person
    3-The...

    Agreed. I thought that was an odd response. I assume the upstairs neighbors are canoeing without protection. The OP knows that one of them is cheating. Who knows if he's being safe. I think it's...
