    Often when we are trying to fix a habit, it will feel over-exaggerated and wrong for a while. Like people who lean forward all the time, you tell them to lean further back until they are sitting...

    I think that the right stirrup in the first few photos, she is squashing the flexible bit in with her leg. And the left stirrup in the last photo I think she is half in, half out of it so the...

    The noise is neither here nor there except that it is a symptom. The real issue is whether or not he can get enough air in to be comfortable. Sounds like he can. There are loads and loads of...

    I don't see what might have been dangerous about Mary King's ride through the water in that video? All that's going on (and it happens all through the course at combinations) is that if she slips...

    I guess the key aspect is - no system will ever be perfect. And there will always be compromise (mostly around money I'd guess). To have a healthcare system that is perfect for everyone in every...

    This is not how the NZ healthcare system works. When you travel overseas, you buy medical travel insurance for the duration of your travel. If you have a pre-existing condition then you discuss...

    Of course they will! Don't forget that 4 years or so ago when he ended up in the top ten at WEG Jock Paget was pretty unknown. And when was it Michel Jung stamped his mark on the eventing world? ...
