    I'm a smoker but I do not and will not smoke at my stable. I think it is a property owner's right to decide whether or not smoking is allowed and where. Personally, I would not board anywhere that...

    Yes, a few times. My trainer would push me to do things I didn't think I could when I was learning to ride. I'd get scared and tell her I couldn't and she'd tell me to get off the horse or DO IT! So...

    Whenever I think of show names for greys the word "chrome" always pops into my head. But I can't really help you actually get that into a name since I suck at that. =)

    I don't have any tips for you really, I wear minimal foundation and it's mineral powder from avon, which I set with another concealer powder and that stuff stays until I wash my face. But as per the...

    I do a thorough clean about once a month. Twice a week I will wipe down everything with my saddle soap spray (which I really don't consider "cleaning") and I always rinse my bit after every ride.
