    My employer has a very strong safety committee, they take the stance that every "accident" is preventable. Each month we review the incidents/accidents that have occurred and break them down to find...

    Tradewind, I don't see a secure seat either. But maybe.

    Not to hijack my own thread, but I've never seen a picture of Steinkraus where he wasn't totally in control of his position. So many riders...

    I found more info in facebook, but still no definite cause of the fall. It did say the horse is unhurt. This is so unbelievably sad. I'm very sorry for all who loved her.

    Both. The first thing you notice is the whispering and the "looks". I've been near them a couple of times while waiting for the round pen or wash rack. The comments they make about some of the...

    Hah! That is it exactly, "kindred spirits". Once in awhile I've spoken to one or the other of that trio and the conversation has been pleasant. It's when they are together that my mean girl radar...
  9. Mean girls at the barn (and they are all over 50!)

    So is there something genetic about being a mean girl? Once a meany always a meany? I've boarded horses at this place for two years. I'm not here daily so I've missed the barn drama, but I'm...

    Eek.. I saw the title and literally choked. With all the hullabaloo about not bringing him home I thought oh great, I'll never get to see him.

    Fantastic! Congrats to you, and he is a bay, you are double lucky :) Thank you for posting the videos I love that gallop.

    I don't think number two makes a difference. If I know my horse is iffy on x country than I'm going to "ride hard" whether I know my dressage score is good or don't know it at all. And if dressage is...

    Don't call me Shirley. (haha, from Airplane)

    OP, I was just thinking yesterday how my horse looks like Cecil the Seamonster when his ears are back. Usually he will put one back and the other...

    My old cat would get on my pillow facing me and pat my face if my eyes were open. If I closed them he would snuggle next to my forehead until I fell asleep. I miss that cat! He also would verbally...

    I've had three Tundras, love that pickup. Drive like a dream and haul beautifully! Congrats :)

    But.... I'm looking at the 1/2 ton Dodge EcoDiesel. The mileage is fantastic.

    I missed this thread first time around. Sending a trainer to assess a horse isn't really risky, but the story has been fun to follow!

    If katyb is still around I hope she chimes in too. The picture...

    While I agree his comment was distasteful I'm pretty darn sick of the "rude, ugly Americans" routine. For those of you that are too embarrassed to admit you are American, MOVE. (oops, is that rude) ...

    About three days prior to leaving I start salting the hay and also put a pinch in the grain. I'd make sure her grain mix was soupy. Bring water from home and mix it half and half with onsite water. ...

    Same here! Whenever I hear people say that there is no treatment I wonder if they consulted a vet to get that prognosis.

    Love, lust or run

    Stacy London has a new show. I'm shocked at the way some people dress. I wonder if they will continue with the style that she finds for them. So far every person has looked 100% better. jmho

    Oh that is terrible! He was so skinny. Curses to the "rescue" creeps that starved him to death.

    Kudos to the group helping the gent with heart issues. I hope all his horses find good homes.
