    If RJ Classics offered their soft shell coats in short/petite sizing, I'd give them a try. My wool blend show coat, size 12 short, is from them and fits quite well.

    The Pikeur Scarlett has also...

    BB, do what you want. No one HAS to trail ride and I know a lot of people, especially older ones, who get caught up in the "what if..." thinking when out there. I am now 50 and took a very long...

    I didn't break mine, but slipped and fell and got a huge abscess on it in 1982. I was a senior in high school at the time and spent 10 days or so laying on my stomach with hot compresses on it,...

    Canaqua, you are right. MB had a *horrible* reputation when I moved to Boston in 1996. At some point, they started cleaning up the stores, and then renovating and enlarging them, and they closed...

    I also research online first and try to be sure of exactly what I want and how much it "should" cost.

    Here's an article about things on a store level:

    Have a look at this thread. It details a number of peoples' experiences, including mine.

    I was in today; I just needed a few things for the tomatillo salsa I am making tonight (we have 5 pounds of tomatillos and another 5 pounds or so coming along; they have to go somewhere!) It was...

    Sigh, no. It may be in Swedish, but the world with the circle and slash makes it pretty clear that the link won't work over here...

    Well, you do have to take into account the "New England Premium" for cost. I think ours was around $12K to replace but that was about 10 years ago.

    However, in the post I made above about my...

    The mare came to me in 2008 very well trained to self-load and self-unload in the trailer. Then she had a bad experience with a trailer in 2009, and has not been...

    Yep, not a good look for the more-than-skinny. This is me in the Gersemi "short" coat sold by SmartPak. I wear a 10P in street clothes and this coat is a 42. Now if I'd had time to get some custom...

    You are not alone. I will admit to having anti-anxiety medication on hand, just in case things aren't going well. I also have life-long mild depression so the talk inside my head can get pretty...

    Another narrow twist fan here. No matter what "they" say about wide twists for women, I am really only comfortable in a narrow twist saddle.

    I do think some of us have more of a challenge finding...

    I will place a removable marker every 25 stitches or so... I've cast on over 100 stitches before, but never 427. Right now, I'm trying to find circular needles long enough to hold that many...

    My guess is that the septic system isn't properly plumbed, or designed, if you can't put TP down it.

    Our house has a septic system and as long as we don't put grease down the drains, or tampons,...

    Yeah, um, I get this.

    Except my tomato production has gone all weird on me. The Beaverlodge Slicer is pulled up and dumped off the back slope; it is determinate so all the fruit got ripe at once,...

    DH shopped at MB today. He found 90% of what was on our list; the store pretty much had no produce or meat, and some other areas were a bit thin, but overall it looked good.

    We are absolutely...

    I have a lot of yarn and a lot of projects that will never be done, but I do have a scarf I'm working on right now that is almost done... a lacey pattern in a yummy (expensive!) silk-wool blend. ...

    Does anyone think it's possible that there was a hole in the footing at the bottom of the drop? I noticed most of the horses who tripped landed in the same place, and one who landed with his hind...

    After my mom died, once my dad was past the first year of grief where he really needed me, I didn't talk to him as often. It's not that there were issues between us; we just didn't have a lot to...

    Not a lot of plans so far. Saturday I'm trailering out to a new place for hacking with a friend. And then going to a different friend's birthday dinner with DH. Oh, and seeing if my trailer fits...

    The Eous pads from Dressage Extensions are very nice. They are lightweight and not bulky, which is good for summer. I like the "cream" they use as it is neither yellowish or grayish.

    You need to get the real thing, not any brand that has stabilizers, gelatin, various "gums" etc. Fage is one of the few; oddly enough, on our recent trip to the UK, I discovered that some flavors of...
