    My apologies, I certainly didn't mean it in an insulting way! If I told you the story of my week you would not believe me, so brain fried is an understatement.

    Well, I guess I'll be the dissenter (surprise, not, LOL) -- no way I would pay for it. My arms aren't broken and seeing as how I am one of those people who DESPISE exercise for exercise sake (not...

    Ooooo, the plot thickens! Well, bummer for Ben & Erin if they are still in need of a buyer. I still am, I know it sucks, and hey, my house is cheaper!!! (ok, can't put many horses on 1/3 of an...

    Haha, don't feel bad -- some people just seem to have superhuman powers! I am DEFINITELY not one of them. I used to push a lot more, but after leaving 30 behind years ago, I am far happier enjoying...

    Not the owl! :*( (Kidding only because it's pretty, but glad to hear they are taking the mud into consideration -- can one horse just jump it so we have an awesome photo, pretty please?)

    Ben's place is lovely! Where they are now is really more in New Hill, although I'm sure it's handy being around the corner from very fancy vet. I am sad to see Ben and Erin go, I LOVED their jumper...

    Braiding is neither "expected" by the judges nor required EVER in the USEF rule book. The judge just has to be able to see the horse's crest line and things should be tidy. As a scribe, I promise...

    I should think if you are going to maintain a career as a professional rider, everything has to be for sale! Unless you have some trust funds backing you, the irony is that if you've made an...

    Wow! What a beautiful course -- and surprisingly, it reminds me in many places of the old Rolex courses I attended (late 80's thru 90's). I love the use of lots of black flags; it looks so long, I...
