    That is a perfectly acceptable helmet. You could even do the blue/black one with your blue shadbelly.

    I switched from a much more expensive helmet to an Ovation for schooling a few years back, and...

    Baloney! That's pretty much all that goes on in any COTH political thread! A few thoughtful replies but mostly it's mud-slinging back and forth, by BOTH sides.

    I rarely post on political stuff...

    I don't particularly agree with most of Ted Cruz's political principles. But I respect his right to see things that way, and I can understand why/how he does.

    However, I've read a few pieces on...

    I would say that the quality of that photo most likely says WAY more about the Chronicle's access to good-quality photos than it does about that rider.

    For example, seeing how the horse has ducked...

    Lexie, the persona you present here is a hot mess, darling.

    Based on your numerous previous posts I really thought you were a teenager. A very dramatic teenager with little to no positive...

    A couple of years ago, I was watching live-streaming (of Rolex maybe? some big event, at any rate) and Sally O'Connor was commentating, I believe. She went off on a tangent about the mare's name, and...

    You have missed the point. This is NOT easy for anybody, really. It's hard work to make clinics work, ESPECIALLY the first time you bring that person in. And you're new to your area too right? Which...

    It's Elmar Schmiehusen, which is who Emily (Wagner) Miles chose to use her Dressage Foundation grant to train with over the past winter. I didn't know who he was before that, but there are certainly...

    No, not French school. Considering Elmar trained a pretty high-profile American rider recently, I don't think I'd call him an unknown and he certainly isn't doing anything particularly weird or "out...

    I feel like you're making this way too much of a hand-wringing pity party. And you're coming across as a little condescending even though I don't think that is your intent. Maybe reconsider your...

    I've had a few incidents like yours over the years and like you, it's made me a total safety freak. Even now, years, nay DECADES later, I am diligent about pushing stall latches completely back flush...

    I can't say I'm surprised that a group of professional statisticians, who are also riders (most of them ride dressage I believe, even) spent a ton of time analyzing and evaluating dressage scoring...

    In the context of the original thread, nobody was shaming the roommate, because they hadn't actually said or written anything TO the roommate.

    It was a judgmental comment made ABOUT the roommate,...

    D'OH. It literally never occurred to me to rewind; rather, I've been checking in randomly, hoping to see activity. :o

    Thanks for the input! I agree with you about them needing *something.* I really hadn't considered it until we started researching. One dude on an outdoorsy website mentioned he capsized once and his...

    Ah, hadn't thought about it from that angle. Mine are strong swimmers, so I guess the vest would be a "just in case" thing. So I guess I like that the one that is lighter on the belly side.

    I could very well be wrong, but I don't *think* any of the airs have ever been in any of the FEI tests.

    Other movements, like the reinback schaukel, I was told they were taken out of the tests...
