    I wouldn't ride with anyone who thought they were in a position to limit my personal training choices. My regular trainer rides with several people on a regular basis; I go to one trainer pretty much...

    Memoir, humor, Chronicles of the $700 Pony, and the Further Adventures of the $700 Pony (only avail as e-book). I wrote them, so biased, but I do re-read them periodically and I think they're pretty...

    Why does it matter if the BO is 'judging' you? You can't change the way other people think, you can only deal with your reactions to it.

    One of the cool things about being a grown up human is...

    And how many ads do you read that state "schooling third," which I have come to understand means, "no changes yet."

    I think the key for the OP is consistency. She has a lot of great ideas here (and a few passive/aggressive ideas that aren't all that helpful, but I am guessing she's sorted through those). Using the...

    Really great insight, netg.

    The way I think about it is that the lower levels exist as a way to spot check the training scale. If you have a lovely upper level horse and are a lovely upper level...

    I tried to sell a horse once that had issues; I didn't disclose the specific issues in the ad, but noted that the horse required an experienced rider. And then when people called, I gave them the...

    I think tan breeches look lovely, so until I'm riding something that's doing flying changes, I'll stick with tan.

    My 'show boots' are the same vintage as my trainer (she's over 30, so that's saying something). They wear like they were part of my skin. I *wish* I could wear them every day, but I'd rather they...

    I actually think he sounds like a really *excellent* boyfriend, just for someone other than the OP. I am not being snarky at all, but it sounds like a match that might work some of the time, or even...

    I think you need a new vet. If you were feeling a while back that the cat is not doing well, and it's time, well, you know the cat better than the vet does.

    As humans, we take on such a...

    Can you foster, with intent? It's something our local shelter offered, and it was really a brilliant way to date before marriage (for want of a better analogy).

    We just adopted our first dog from...

    I was 38 and and 40 when my two were born; I was fortunate and didn't have any fertility issues. DH is 8 years older than I am. Kids are now 10 and 12 and I am now 50. DH, 58. We are way older than...

    Actually, it's not that uncommon, particularly in countries like Italy where prime flats have been in possession of one owner since WWII; you buy the property, but the owner stays until they die.

    I took seven years off, and stopped cold. I shipped the horses off, got on a plane and moved to China for three years, followed by four years in Europe. I *could* have gotten involved in horses, in...

    I ran the Lehigh Valley one last September! It was HOT. Oi, hot, hot, hot. You start at 7am, but the sun was *way* up by the time I finished. Run faster than me, so you don't end up with sunburn.:lol:
