    Of course, keep in mind that some of what we least like hearing is what we most need to hear. Just because something wasn't stated as tactfully as it could have been doesn't mean it's not valid.

    I'm sorry if you thought I was referring to you with this comment as I definitely was not but no names need be mentioned. I think it's pretty obvious who the GEMs are. ;)

    This is the really annoying thing about social media. Nowhere has Caroline said that she is going to sue the selectors. Please read more carefully. It was something a poster on this thread suggested!

    Hopashore, Since your horse is bracing through his back, try lowering his neck a few strides before asking for the TOH. This will help relax him which will make it easier for you to keep him where he...

    She is still behind the aids. I know this sounds counter intuitive, but you need to boot her forward into the halt. "Stepping all over the place" indicates an unwillingness on her part to step...
