    Another vote for the Ovation helmets. Great for oval-shaped heads, cheap, and safe. Tipperary is another winner for oval heads.

    I think it's wonderful that you're shopping your local tack...

    I didn't have much to say about your first post, but I do have some thoughts on this one.

    If you don't feel comfortable doing it, then don't. I'd say the same for a non-LinkedIn recommendation. If you want to be diplomatic, offer to write a recc with the skills you can speak to. If you're...

    It depends on your job field and the nature of the recommendations, but yes, I think LinkedIn recommendations have value.

    All of these groups frequent LinkedIn, and none of them have the time or...

    Like you, I've noticed that SmartWool socks don't age like they used to. I thought about going to Kirkland brand, but I decided to go the other direction and buy Darn Tough Socks. They're pricey, but...

    A traditional 2-horse bumper pull? The answer is "Yes, barely, but I wouldn't want to do it." For reasons that others have articulated.

    It's an old thread, but here's the straight answer:

    The Toulouse Genesis system is a cheaper version of the Wellup adjustable gullet mechanism. It's sometimes spelled Wellep adjustable gullet...

    Fun fact for winter riders: In a pinch, HS Leather Balm makes a decent lip balm. It wasn't quite tasteless, but it wasn't gross either, and it kept me from cracking my lip open in 10-degree weather....

    If that's your complaint, then try these. They were a game changer in my house, and they're small enough that even a small eater can get through it before it gets cold. For extra staying power, dab...

    On that budget, your best bet is to get married in a park or natural landmark--someplace that will only charge you $100-$200 for the site fee, which should leave you enough cash to feed everybody....

    I'm a little late to this party, but if your main focus is running and you're doing this cross-training mainly in service of your running, check out the book Brain Training for Runners. Although the...

    That's a tough one. Possibly you could get Katy Groesbeck, the 3-star eventer who just moved into Redtail Ridge, to do it. She mentioned the other day that she's started doing training rides on a...

    I looked at the picture. Really and truly, nobody's gonna give that a second glance at a horse trial...unless they're busy ogling the adorable pony.

    I know this is totally revolutionary, but why not ask each trainer to clarify their feelings on the area of dispute and make your decision based on the answers? You may find that a little...

    EDIT: Gary appears to be on hiatus. :( Beval is a good alternative.

    None of the above. Get yourself a pair of custom Gary Mundy stirrup leathers. They're dirt cheap even if you customize them to...
