    Having seen many sic-fi movies like Terminator, all I can say these things give me the chills. They're creepy...

  3. Will MIT make these a little taller? Maybe 16h or more?

    If you can't see a distance even if your life depended on it (just so you know, it actually might depend on it...), don't worry! Just wait a little longer and order one of these from MIT in size 16h...

    I'm 5ft and ride two horses: one 18h german bred mare and another 16h selle francais gelding. Even though the mare is bigger, she is easier to ride due to her good balance and easy going personality....

    I've been there last year around April and even though there is more variety in some other places, you will find a better selection than past years.

    They have included Horze products which are...

    Honeymoon+Horses=Premature Divorce

    I'm on my honeymoon! :)

    At first we wanted to do Aachen (this, coming from a non-horsey dude, makes him a real keeper) but this year the show is half sized due to the European Championships. So we...

    I'm from Argentina and we don't get much import there. So if they have something that is imported from Germany or USA, it's ok. I'll probably "need" it anyways! ;)

  11. Great breeches!

    I have a couple of pairs which I bought in Ky during WEG 2010. They are still going strong and I ride at least three horses a day, every day, all year. Not that they are the only pair I use, but I've...

    This one is very graphic, in detail and has a great plan on how to bring a green prospect to his third year of training with a day by day schedule. That's neat!...

    Craigslist. I found mine through there when I arrived at Wellington in January with no idea where to look. Stayed at a hotel and in less than a week I found a great place.

    I let him pass. He was sold for $84.000 argentinian pesos. Dolar-wise, it depends on what market you look at it. I have to calculate the official rate, since locals spend in pesos, whereas foreigners...

    Even so, in that photo you can tell she's not a greenie because of the height of the jump. I was wondering what went on in the lives of all those special horses before they got...
