    I teach English to 9th and 10th graders. Homework is never busy work but an opportunity to practice previous skills, prepare for a class activity (i.e. read), or to reflect on/recount the day's...

    I just want to add that I consider myself friends, or at least on very friendly terms, with my BO. She has been my BO longer than my "friend." Either way, I would never dream of taking advantage of...

    Second on the method of finding a way to keep getting her wet while she is moving until she learns that it won't stop. Years ago I bought a 4 year-old barely broke 16 hand Appy. He'd never been...

    I decided to do a year of western dressage on my Paint because we weren't quite ready to hit the (schooling) shows at First Level, and I was tired of the same training level tests. The western...

    I hope we hear that this sharing on CoTH led to a great home for a super cute pony! I know that if he was in our neck of the woods my BO might even find him worth a look as a project; alas, Maine is...

    I have not attended recognized or rated shows this year, but where I am (Maine) the numbers are down across the board. The pleasure shows' classes aren't filling, and the schooling dressage shows are...

    Since I just had a super lesson on my horse this morning, I'll play. :winkgrin: I paid $500 for my Paint gelding; he was 5, had been gelded 5 months previous, and had about a dozen rides on him. He...

    Chestnut is my least favorite color and I'm on my third. First was an Appy gelding that was chestnut with some light roaning. By the time I sold him he had more white hairs than chestnut and had...

    I should have said content teachers in my district...I can't speak for elsewhere.

    Last year it took me 12 weeks to drag my lower level reluctant readers through one novel. 12 weeks! I do hope I...

    Because, Beentheredonethat, it's been my experience that other content area teachers don't teach students how to read their material; they just assume they can and will. So now English teachers have...

    Sorry I can't help you with the specific answer to your question, but I have an old Spirig for my short-backed Paint, and he and I love it! When I had him fitted, I learned that the fitter had...

    This is an interesting thought. I've been competing western dressage this year and have had to adjust to the western saddle. All had been going well. I've been riding 4-5 days a week, at all...

    I just used the ipad camera to record my pattern, then I used GarageBand to edit my music. I have never used GarageBand on the ipad, though, so I don't know if it is more or less user friendly than...

    Olivia also gives nod to Shakespeare. (Twelfth Night) Or, if you'd prefer the heroine, Viola, which does get the -ah sound on the end.

    I believe that Arabian Saddle Company has adjustable stirrup bars as a custom option on their dressage model.

    Chiming in from the very north of the Northeast. My friend just paid $4000 for a kid-safe QH for her special-needs daughter. He's registered, but not show type (came originally from a working feedlot...

    Just wanted to add that I feel your pain, OP. I am 5' not quite 2" tall and have always struggled against saddles with the stirrup bar too far forward. I finally found success with an old Spirig, and...

    Berney Bros. saddles have short, swept back points. FYI, I have found that the tree widths run narrow, so a Wide is more like a MW.

    I think it sometime depends on whether or not you, the seller, can duplicate the conditions a buyer needs to experience to confirm the appropriateness of the horse. Good friends of mine have a horse...

    I find seat size is somewhat dependent on the saddle, and, as others have stated, the style of the seat. I ride in an 18" Spirig right now; it's a little roomy, but the stirrup bar placement really...

    I like using your first initial and reserving the right to use your "real" name in the future if you so choose.
