    If anyone ever wonders why I have zero interest in pursuing this sport anymore nor paying attention to it, this, right here, is a prime example.

    I used to do that, but when I got professionally fit and spent close to $70 a bra for quality support and looks, I broke that habit REAL fast. They go in their bag, usually get washed alone (I'll...

    I have two that I adore that I tend to alternate between. I have two more that are equally high quality, but are a different brand and cuts, that I just don't wear as much. I try to wash them all (on...

    I was always taught that for young/green horses that they must go down before they can come up. So, lots of (correct) long and low work. As they grow stronger and more supple, long and low is mostly...

    Additional info changes my view a bit. I'm not sure what the answer is, but I think you need to give you both a little time to recover. My gut says stop trying to "fix" it for awhile, and play. Hack,...

    My local NPR affiliate, WAMU, has excellent local coverage (and is home to several syndicated opinion shows). Because we're in the DC area, we get both local district coverage (and really good...

    The hunter pace was on my radar, but considering I still have to borrow a rig, I like the idea of only having to drive someone else's truck and trailer 10 minutes around the corner rather than an...

    This is probably the only reason I am jealous of men. They can whip it out and back in again with zero pants dropping, crouching, or exposing their backsides to all sorts of nefarious wild life.

    ditto times a million.

    A few few years ago, I gave up with a horse I loved dearly because he and I were so miserable together (in the dressage) that we just needed to part ways. We'd done...

    NPR and BBC. That's about it. NPR is probably a little left of center, but I do appreciate that they try and cover stories from all angles. They have been proven to be pretty unbiased (full...

    Ahhh....ok. Didn't realize it was the first. I will follow up with the email on the brochure then, too!

    Piedmont Hunter Trials

    It has been many moons since I've done a hunter trial, and the last one was a very different sort than the one advertised in the PFH's brochure. I don't know if it is because I am dying to go do...

    Up until Toby, I tended to put horses back on trailers if they weren't being dealt with somehow or I wasn't going to be immediately close at hand. But I figured out that Toby is a much happier camper...
  16. Good reading and other resources for the horsey noob

    I've more or less taken under my wing a couple who adopted a pair of rescued horses a couple of months ago (true rescue cases. Found neglected and starving). They are basically completely new to...

    I would consider getting another opinion.

    A story: my horse "failed" a PPE prior to me trying him. The potential buyers wouldn't state what, exactly, their issue was to the seller, but said their...

    Opinions on a helmet's life span

    I have the opportunity to buy a brand new, never worn, tags still on CO GR8 for a steal. Thing is, the manufacturer's date is from 2007. Do I go for it, or avoid?
