    When you've got to go, you've got to go.

    The tricky part is finding a place and time that will avoid all field members and staff (and poison ivy)!

    GOOD POINT and - to build on that theme,

    Horse should approach and receive or return flasks smoothly and stand perfectly while rider takes a swig and/or replaces the top!

    WD:

    "One veteran told me recently that he likes to hunt old horses."

    There's something to be said for longevity.

    Reminds me of the well-known saying, "There are old pilots and bold pilots...

    2foals -

    "it's a marvelous mane for grabbing ahold of in a tricky moment"

    This is a GREAT feature to have in the hunt field and I use it liberally myself. A saying I am fond of repeating is,...

    Good lists ladies. Seems to me that the relative weight of some factors depends on the country you will most often hunt. For instance, a big galloping horse would be more desirable in open country...

    Stoic - I do agree that both physical and training issues are on the table.

    A professional trainer worth his/her salt will check out the physical issues with a vet they know and trust, and keep...

    "I hear what youre saying all the way."

    It appears not, based on your responses. People have given you some very good advice and you have spent your time reacting to perceived slights rather than...

    OandO - Good point and on the mark. I am confident that many more hunt field concerns are whispered among other field members than are given full voice, even after the fact. That is part of the...

    I second Carol Ames' recommendation of Feldenkrais, but I would say you should plan for more than one lesson. If you can find the right instructor, your body mechanics will change remarkably and...

    LaGringa:

    Thanks to you and Randy for your service to our country. Please tell Randy not to worry about the boots. I am pretty sure that wateryglen is correct. Every hunt I've seen in Virginia...

    It's kind of nice to find out how similar everyone's experiences and responses are. I do what jawa and ISR do as well.

    Happy hunting, all!

    I've certainly seen all of the scenarios that you folks list and have done pretty much what you have done. I guess the tricky part is that "unsafe" is to some extent in the eye of the beholder, up...

    Without judging whether or not you should be trying to "fix" this, I'd say she needs to get some perspective. My personal way of describing this is: "Eyes on the prize."

    Spinoff: Safety concerns - what to do?

    We all seem to agree that safety is paramount and that much of etiquette is really about safety. I'm sure most of us have seen unsafe situations. It can be awkward to try and do anything about...

    At least get the owner to teach you how to use a "pulley rein." This should give you an emergency brake.

    Is he pushy when you are working with him on the ground, too?

    WD:

    "I personally am more annoyed with . . . "

    Yes, but speaking for myself, it's more rewarding to shrug it off and enjoy the day. If I could make it all "perfect" I would, but I won't let...

    As far as written rules of attire are concerned, I think there's more variability these days. Regarding helmets specifically, I think some hunts would rather see riders in approved helmets than hunt...

    Let's estimate - riding 56 years - first few and some in the middle perhaps only 2 or 3 per year but average I'd guess conservatively 5, so that would put it around 250 - wayyy too many to count. ...

    Another strategy - put in a second gate, let the mud pit dry up THEN regrade and add porous material (gravel, dust). Alternate use of the two gates as necessary.
