    What about showing expenses?

    That's what I was going to say. I PCed myself. My question was geared toward finding out if IEA had any knowledge component or process of assessing members non-riding skills and how the expenses...
  3. Can anyone offer a comparison of IEA and Pony...

    Can anyone offer a comparison of IEA and Pony Club? Many PCs don't require riders to have their own horses either. And you have the benefit of not aging out at 18. I know PC recently added hunters to...
  4. Having been a previous resident of Eventland I...

    Having been a previous resident of Eventland I know who Fox-Pitt is and have seen him ride in person. He’s a professional rider who does not put his body in bad places while jumping. I’ve also...

    You may see black tack on jumpers, but hunters and jumpers are not the same thing. Among other things, hunters have a more specific dress code, as you're learning.

    To add my two cents, based on...

    He was about 6'4 riding a horse that was less than 16hh from what I've heard. That's like an adult blasting around on a tricycle. Nothing good could happen if something went slighty awry.

    Is the...

    I second the theory that it's likely an issue of how much and where the weight is in your feet. I tend to get caught with more weight in my right stirrup and consequently my right foot falls asleep...

    1. No one is saying that every fast rider is unsafe. But as people have said, there’s a difference between safe fast and unsafe fast and an observer CAN tell the difference.

    2. If the horse is...

    What about trying some combined tests? I wonder if you would sees such craziness from people that were also expected to execute dressage tests. That requires a certain about of control and correct...

    The photo shows you bending at the hips... just not nearly enough. You're not bending in your back or waist, which is good. Try over-exaggerating it for a bit and see what happens. Maybe your...

    What about mulch? I know a Saddlebred trainer whose arena is footed with regular mulch. That seems to be a thing for ASB people. I never noticed it getting dusty.

    I also disagree with the posters who say that Dad shouldn't feel obligated to show support for his children's activities by even attending the occasional lesson. Isn't that one of the joys of...

    ... well, that's not really news, is it? Why keep rehashing the negativity?
  14. Because it doesn't seem to be getting anywhere...

    Because it doesn't seem to be getting anywhere and the bit about it taking place overseas, which was a major part of this thread, has been proven false. So we debated something that wasn't even...

    While not a braider myself, I am fairly certain you cannot just braid a mane however you want. lol People WILL sometimes want colored yarn or a charm added. If you braid dressage horses, some owners...

    I came from years with a trainer who basically micromanaged my riding and was not very positive about me riding independently, as in, without her being right there. It left with unable to trust...

    I’m not so much bothered by labels because I think it helps socially. If you don’t think you’d be comfortable dating a certain gender, that’s totally okay, and having labels helps people find the...

    Given the Snopes evidece and that someone knowledgeable in military protocol finds the idea of the memo inappropriate, it seems likely that this whole thing is fake and merely created and passed...

    But a bisexual person, or any person for that matter, may not know if a person is cisgender or not upon meeting them or while dating them. A bi person could fall for a trans* person without...

    Well, ask him if how his peers in the US feel about it. And I'm not the one judging here. You're the one assuming that soldiers are offended or somehow inconvenienced by this suggestion.
  21. Well, why don’t you track down a solider that is...

    Well, why don’t you track down a solider that is currently in the middle east and first ask them if this is even true. Then, ask them if it the OMGHUGE dilemma that you’re making it out to be. Also...

    Oh my god, he was clearly a terrible, evil hypocrite, who shouldn't be allowed to be openly Muslim because he places such a burden on his peers.

    I feel similarly.

    Can someone explain why pansexual is really that different than bisexual? I am a cisgender female, so I am attracted to men. But I’m not attracted to ALL men, or just ANY man. I...

    There is so much tension in those countries, doesn't it make sense to go to the extra effort to show we're trying to be nice? I'm not interpreting this situation as anything personal. I'm sure anyone...

    You mean how just about 90% of Christians and Jews do things that their religion technically forbids, especially if they're living in a country that is not super wrapped up in the religion (US,...
