    So sorry to hear it, OP. My husband was laid off 4 years ago and still hasn't been able to get a regular job... just some odd jobs here and there. I can't imagine losing mine as well. Ugh. I hope...

    I generally try to go to funerals and am usually happy that I did for one reason or another (not that they're often fun, though some have their moments), but having had them for both parents and a...

    I started the couch to 5K program in May and finished in July (having not run for years). Going slow is key, like everyone else has said, but not running two days in a row - i.e., giving your self...

    Got an error on the jump video, but those are some NICE ponies in the jog video.

    Question: Are they all 14.2 and under, or is there a different definition of pony in Europe? Some of them...

    I like Countrywood's idea of keeping Horse A on the cheap and selling Horse B. When you're ready to invest the time and funds into a talented but green horse, you will find another one.

    What a horrific accident! Everyone else has made great points. The only thing I'll add is that your fear is appropriate, given that you're in so much pain and have so much healing to do. Think of...

    What does a braided tail on an eventer look like? I'm guessing it doesn't go all the way to the end of the tail bone like a hunter tail. Could anyone point me to some photos?

    Same idea. But (at least in the case with the chapter I was involved in) it's more about socializing and...

    I had no idea what I was getting into at age 23... didn't really "believe" in marriage, came from a "broken home," and was generally very cynical. But I was in love and liked the idea of being...

    I love these stories.

    My old mare had a rolling style somewhat similar to the mare in the first video. She'd get down on her knees and lay her head down, with her cheek to the ground, while...

    ^Triple ditto. BTW, back in the stone ages, when I was a WS, I was too busy and tired to be posting on the internet (not that there was an internet at the time). If I were still young, I'd be...

    Just wanted to chime in and say that while I really enjoyed last year's format, I think I prefer this year's. I like seeing updates of all the horses at the same time, and I like the trainer's...

    Absolutely! Had the flu once and came to understand how dangerous it is. I've never felt so debilitated. By the time I made it in to the doctor's office, I'd started to feel a bit better, but I...

    You have my sympathy! I broke my leg 13 months ago and after 3 surgeries am still NQR. Hope to have hardware removal surgery in the next month or two -- which should improve my mobility and reduce...

    He looks like a very good egg. Have fun with him!

    My old horse, Pete, was like that. Outwardly tough and dominant, inwardly chicken. Among other things, he was quite herd-bound. Took him on a ride-and-drive poker chase once, not realizing that he...

    Even though Peggy has her new car (and I'm an admirer of the Subaru Impreza!), in case anyone's still looking at this thread, I have to put in another good word for the CRV. I bought mine new in...

    I watched on Sat. What a beautiful day for XC!

    Maybe this is a little off topic, but I really want the recipe for the Fair Hill crab bisque! (Couldn't find it with a google search.) Anyone?!?

    I say Go For It! My trainer has taken lessons and clinics with a bunch of different ULRs and she said Buck is her favorite. She's told me if I ever get a chance, I should absolutely do a clinic...

    This is very exciting! I could certainly see a lot of interest among people who are located in South Jersey. But it might be a challenge to bring people over the bridges, when there are already so...

    By other side of the river, do you mean NJ? Just being hopeful here! One thing to consider is that the ground is pretty darn flat in South Jersey. We have to go to MD or PA to ride on hills!

    Same as what Saje said...

    My daughter's chiweenie is the most food-obsessed beast I've ever met. Drowning his kibble in water slows him down a bit and keeps him from choking. Scattering it all...
