    I kept hoping that horse would just double barrel the guy whipping him right in the head.

    I would never in a million years do this. It would be a deal breaker if I was looking at a barn for boarding. So much can change in six months. And while I would trust my current

    I am not as tall as you - 5'7" -and have short legs, but am super long-waisted. Anything listed as low rise is definitely indecent on me.

    I have a couple pairs of Romfh full seat breeches and...

    The barn I board at has 18 horses on 10 acres - not small acreage by most definitions - but they have a dumpster that gets emptied once a week. Works out really well.

    I was actually just about to make this suggestion. I almost always work my horse immediately before he is shod. He has the attention span of a hyperactive 2 year old child and while he is not...

    I would think it does have some to do with your saddle. I totally thought that I loved my old saddle. Until I sat in one that I never, ever fight for a position. Never, ever can't sit my guy's...

    Scribing is a great experience - though I would definitely agree that you won't get to watch as much of the tests as you might think. Many judges I have worked with take the opportunity at lower...

    I am one of the straight load people here - and I do get that not all slants are created equal. The thing is - my experience has been that even better designed ones are just not as comfortable for...

    I know it is a little off where this topic has gone - but I regularly clinic with a Olympic rider that will tell you some of the best performing international horses are ugly as h*ll just standing...

    My preference is always for a straight load, particularly for a 2 horse trailer. As one person said - can be very useful for hauling things other than horses, whereas the slant is an awkward shape....

    The downfall to flavored creamer is that if you don't get the powdered kind, which I personally don't like, it can get flipping expensive quick. I would get a pint of flavored creamer for my coffee,...

    So at the risk of being labeled a CP defender, of which I am not (I have seen and had enough interactions with him to definitely NOT be a fan), I think that a couple of things need to be addressed. ...

    If you are just starting in dressage - yes, bite the bullet and start riding in your tall boots for every ride. You're already re-learning. You don't want to have to do that again if you want to...
