    FWIW, I ride 4th level/PSG and rarely sit the trot for mediums at home.

    It's not that I can't--I sure as heck can--and it's not a "struggle" (in either definition). In fact, I find sitting the...

    When I was still doing equine practice, I removed many eyes from trauma, uveitis, glaucoma, etc.

    Removing cobwebs

    The title, basically.

    I'm renting an old barn that has had minimal maintenance for at least a decade. I've got a lot of it cleaned up and it looks SO much better.

    No R pirouette, and my 3-tempis fishtail all over the darn place. I only see the mistakes! But I've watched it about half a dozen times and it doesn't get old!
