    I talked to skydy awhile ago, for just a couple of minutes. She had gotten sleep last night and was heading over to see Moe. She says that her kidney is a super kidney, "pissing up a storm" and...

    When I checked earlier today, her sister said she was up all night because of the hospital noise. She was trying to sleep and sent her sister back to the hotel. I guess she never got much sleep at...

    With the unusually rainy weather we have a proliferation of FREAKY GIANT BROWN HARES that like to pop out of the tall grass.

    I don't know when the measurements were first added to the rule book. Actually, reading this about the Myler bits I guess it was added at the same time Myler bits were approved in 2012.

    Happy to provide the updates.

    I spoke with skydy's sister awhile ago. The hospital is pretty full today and they were waiting for a room to open up. Apparently they cannot offer a private room so...

    Let's face it -- ALL news is biased in some form or fashion. That is why I try to consult many news sources. Often I start with http://www.realclearpolitics.com/ for a roundup from multiple sources....

    Another update: Moe, the kidney recipient, came through surgery with "flying colors" and the new kidney is already "kicking in.":D

    Sounds good. I wrote to Hastilow to ask about that one.

    I would have to write for measurements on the Happy Tongue and Informed Design bits, but as long as the arch is no more than 3 cm high and the arch at least 3 cm wide they would be legal.

    Thanks for the bit suggestions jjarab. I will check them out.

    Though I think the mouthpiece is key, but good point about the bridle. Because he is so sensitive, and I need another bridle anyway, I...

    So it is in-hand work (not a new concept to dressage) packaged up as something special, along with special expensive equipment. An "academy" with "mastery" levels based on home study courses, monthly...

    Exactly.

    The vast majoritiy of horses are naturally crooked to some extent and naturally weaker on one side, stronger on the dominant side. Dressage training IS about making the horse straight and...
