    Being present

    Something that has been drilled in my head is being present when you are riding. It finally made sense to me when my trainer said they are basically like two year olds and you wouldn't let a two year...

    It may help to give us a little more information. Do you want to immerse yourself in the area socially outside of horses? Do you care about the barn's discipline? You mentioned being afraid to drive...

    Thank you for reading my longer than long post and for the replies. I've heard basically the exact same things (minus the baby comment - although that is probably true!) from the two close friends I...

    I am headed to Vershire for the adult camp August 19-26. I posted a couple of weeks ago asking if anyone had any experience with it and got quite a few positive responses. I am super excited to go....

    IMO, the bigger question is your husband. Certainly I am not qualified to diagnose a relationship and even if I was, a few posts isn't enough information.

    But these two statements alone set off...

    This totally made my morning, thank you both. I am so excited to go!
  10. Vershire adult riding camp in Vermont - has anyone been?

    I suppose it is a bit late for this question, I just mailed my deposit today :).

    Wondering if anyone has been and what their experience was like. I have been thinking about it for a while and was...

    This ^^. A person is the sum of many parts, physical and mental. Overweight person does not equal bad person or even bad rider. I've never read the blog, but if it is a dialogue about being OK with...

    This ^^! Apparently my tailbone is deceptively protected with lots of fluffy stuff. I'm 43 and fallen off 3X in 7 months (so pathetic). Interestingly enough, I still felt pain in the various areas...

    This thread is making me sad too. And I am fat too!

    Weird thing? I used to weigh 30 lbs less and I thought I was so fat, I shouldn't go out in public. Now I look at pictures of me then and think...

    I'll play. I work for a quasi-federal agency and I used to really care about my job which is in a tiny division focused on low-income people. Busted my butt for 7 years, tried to find ways to make...

    I don't think it is because he is male. I just cut the ties on a similar situation with a female trainer. Little bit different situation, I really don't know what I am doing, but the more I watched...

    Welcome to the DC area! Yes, the traffic sucks and the cost of living is ridiculous, but it really is a neat place to live that offers something for everyone. Plus, you will already be used to the...

    Thanks gottagrey. My discipline is undecided :). I returned to riding after a long time off about 8 months ago so I am really a beginner. I currently take lessons from a dressage instructor. By Pony...
  18. (Yet another) request for trainers/barns in Montgomery/Howard County MD? TIA!!

    Apologies in advance - I know there have been a million of these threads (I've done my homework!) but I am hoping that someone may have an up-to-date suggestion for my particular situation. I really...

    Wow! I knew the rules had changed regarding the age at which you are considered independent, but I had no idea they were so tough.

    One other idea I've not seen tossed out yet is attending a...

    Echoing the sentiments that you should not blame yourself. You did an enormous amount of due diligence and you listened to your gut when you felt that something was wrong - that is *huge*. People...

    After reading all of the posts, there is no doubt in my mind there is a fitness issue and a mental issue. I was not in great shape when I started, but my fitness improved enough along the way to...

    My bubble has been burst. I thought I could finally get fit doing something I actually *like* ;).

    I've dabbled in jogging, but I like to blame my dogs for never being serious about it. I have 2...

    My vet recommended DAP (Dog Appeasing Pheromone). It is distributed by a company called Ceva. It is a spray that you rub on their fur that is supposed to mimic the pheromone that a mother puts off...
