    If he is HR, then you take it to the President/Owner of the business. If that isn't an option, you file a complaint with the EEOC, which should offer you protection from retaliation. Go to the EEOC...

    $2,000, maybe $2,500 max. There are so many nice horses that fit that description in the VA area (since you referenced VA Equestrian). If she were a little younger, then in the $3,500 range.

    Another vote for the heavy duty contractor trash bags. I've used them many times whenever staying overnight, horse shows included. Super handy for cleaning up after a show, too. Significantly less...

    To me, three hits is not excessive. It sometimes makes a point when a single smack just doesn't get the message across. I had a horse that was a COW when being shod and would put all of his weight...

    Another on the side of caution as I had shoulder surgery on April 9 ten years ago. I didn't want to wait six weeks and miss all the spring weather. I waited two weeks and took my mare for a walk...

    I'm doing the opposite - going from a dressage leg to a jumper leg. OUCH!!!! Those would be my calf muscles screaming in protest. LOL.

    Just smile and tell them that you aren't in a place to be in a relationship right now, if you feel the need to explain at all. Frankly, if you have trust issues,then you aren't in the right place. ...

    I am me and I am okay with that.

    My super power is that I can shush the young attorneys in my office with a single glance, even though I'm not a lawyer. Power is in how you rock it.
