    Thanks for that Lisa Lockhart clip, Beau159. Pretty run, and as she's 5th in the world, that proves you don't have to rip, flap and fly to get the job done.

    A friend had an eye removed on her very retired old horse. His initial reaction was somewhat dramatic (ran through a fence), but he adapted to the change eventually. I don't see any reason why a...

    JJARAB, planks on the wrists are tough on me, too. I do mine resting my elbows on the floor instead. That I can do.

    That nursing home sounds pretty good to me, too!

    Anyone remember an actor named Jon (or was it Ron? Or Lon?) McAllister? I recall he played in a lot of those old horse and mule movies. The only...

    Ditto shortening stirrups. Past instructors insisted on a too-long stirrup length for me, which DID NOT WORK for me. They blamed me rather than the stirrup adjustment. On my own, when I shortened the...

    I have the FITS cream breeches also. I use a Mattes cream pad, if that helps. If you don't need/want the sheepskin, perhaps you could lightly dye a pad to suit if you can't find the perfect color off...

    dbliron1, that's a fantastic idea, and so simple I'm embarrassed I didn't think of it first! I have a student with "soft" ears and my headset does not work for her. Yours is a perfect solution!
