    Just wait, judges will change what they like and want to see and then everyone on the other side can scream that judging is unfair. It used to be that you had to have a really good TB to win, now...

    Um, with horses we call it their coat, or their hair. We don't call it "fur." ;)

    Agreed. With monster movers it is so much harder to ride the big gaits. I actually think it's like figure skating these days. It's about the tricks (monster gaits--just like throwing in more and...

    Raise your hand if you think someone from COTH is skulking around and decided to use this topic as the inspiration for the Throwback Thursday article on the home page. :winkgrin:

    I've got MDC Ultimate Intelligent stirrups and LOVE them. They really lay so much better than other stirrups and if you already have a well established leg that you can use easily with or without...

    I'm so sick of people thinking it's about a look, rather than effectiveness of the seat. I'm also tired of people thinking one size fits all with how a rider should ride. Um, every single person...

    Depends on you and your horse. I had a foam filled saddle for my upper level horse, for years, and he adored it. I didn't love the little extra "bounce" I felt in it compared to wool, but since he...

    COTH Writing Contest - Ageism?

    Maybe I couldn't find the topic out here, but I saw this and was wondering why they want to know someone's age when submitting for what appears to be an open contest without any age divisions. ...

    True, this is simply a Wikipedia entry, but here's what they say for treatment.

    Ideally, effective treatment aims to resolve the underlying cause and restores the nerve root to normal function....

    BTW, thanks for letting me know about the book. I just went out and bought the e version. :)

    Probably the most quotable movie after "Monty Python and the Holy Grail." :D

    ROUSs? I don't believe they exist. ;)

    No they couldn't. That is a totally different type of corn and not the one that you would want to feed to humans.

    I do agree that an MRI will tell the real story. Then you can decide which course of treatment you want to take. (You can bring the information from the MRI to your chiropractor as well as having...

    Um, wow, that one is actually interesting. I never heard that one before. I mean, because it has been around for a long time, that one sounds more reasonable than the other really "out there"...

    Ebola Conspiracy Theories

    Okay, let's hear them! I'm hearing a lot of different things about it. Like our government is handling it really well--but then why do they seem so amazingly inept and why is it now here when it's...

    Wow, this advice it totally the opposite of what I do. Doctors always tell you to go with their methods and they think chiropractors are a crock. Um, guess what? I've wrecked my neck and had...

    No cable anymore. I use an antennae (the one my friend's father built out of scrap pieces works better than the high end one I bought) and high speed internet. Unlike most out here, I can't stand...

    I've always preferred the look of a hunt coat (the cut works better on me) and have always worn them when showing at the lower levels.

    I don't know. There are different things people have done to get a horse to accept a bit. The best one I know is to find one that the horse finds comfortable (which is like bra shopping for...

    If you have someone who knows what they're doing (meaning they've studied how to apply it) then it works. If you do it as a stretchy brace, support like you would normal tape, sometimes it will...

    I think it's stupid. Any real judge can tell if a horse is soft and through WITHOUT massive amounts of foam. Just some lipstick or wetness is enough to put the gold edging on the story book that is...
