    But remember, folks, it's not about race :rolleyes:. Just ask any of the [white] men who say that.

    Ugh... disgusted in the conduct of my city right now. Shame on you, St Paul police - and shame...

    Here are some fun "behind the scenes" videos that I took today. Sorry for the quality; they are from my cell phone!

    Nikki decides one of the barn cats needs a bath.

    Nikki begs for treats while...

    Fabulous. Now just to find a way to try them - Dover's website keeps leading me to dead-end links, so haven't been totally successful on that front yet. Super curious to try them, though!

    WEG ;)

    Very unfortunate for the British team, especially since they don't have Big Star either, but I'm glad that they're doing right by the horse and taking good care of her.

    I want to watch the GP and I won't be able to.. darn it... someone please post with how Nougat du Vallet and Antares F go!

    Okay, okay, I'll frame them as soon as the prints get to me! :)

    Mine just started working when Lucy Deslauriers went in - but the announcer said they were back after a short break. Maybe they were rolling the grass or something.

    Is anyone watching the Hampton Classic livestream successfully this morning? I just have some weird music playing, but no image aside from the Longines logo.

    Huh. That got interesting, for lack of a better word.

    OP, I don't know if you'll read this, or care, but honestly, it doesn't matter on this forum what you've done so far in your career - people...

    Uh oh... I read this before the new posts on the horse-slamming-on-brakes thread (which I notice is now locked). Sounds like I missed something.

    Okay, question for those of you who have the OnTytes... where on your foot does the stirrup end up sitting? I'm looking into getting a pair, but I tend to ride with my stirrup very close to my toes...

    Okay, I have a tattoo-related etiquette question for those of you who have tattoos. Is it considered rude to ask the story behind someone's tattoo? I've always assumed that it's a really personal...

    Jumpers are like equitation, but with neater turns and more pace. Oh, and it's objective.

    Depending on the height, generally 1 round per day. At the bigger levels, some horses might just do the...

    My latest blog post (which isn't up anyway) doesn't require a subscription, but I also had an article in COTH talking about my experiences showing on the A circuit as a do-it-yourselfer. Or really,...

    The vast majority of the time, I would say it is the rider's error. Or if not THAT rider, some rider's error in the past has taught the horse either to be afraid or that it's easier not to...

    Albertabound, I've always been told that a double whorl is a sign of intelligence :) Who knows how true it is, but Nikki is definitely smarter than I am!

    I'm going to give it a shot. We'll do a 1.30m early in the week, and the welcome stake if it's not on Thursday between 10:40 and 2:45 (I teach then), and if those go well, we'll give the GP a go.

    Those bits seem awfully large for a 16hh TB. My TB is a smidge smaller than that, with a very classic head, and she wears a 5" bit.

    I've never been told that you need a larger waterford than any...

    Vet.

    I'm not a big believer in "horse is doing x new bad behavior because he's willful and a naughty boy!" There's usually a physical reason (or a training reason).

    If there isn't a physical...

    My mom has the TredStep Donatellos and LOVES them. She uses them every day and rides a couple horses, plus mucking, grooming, etc. I think the only issue she's had is she needed to replace the...

    I agree with you agreeing with me :lol:. Elbow grease doesn't cost a thing, but a lot of people seem to make excuses for not putting it in.

    I also don't care if someone is wearing half chaps or...

    Okay, so is there going to be a massive letter-writing campaign to Mclain from the COTHers who feel that if you use a converter, you can't ride with 2 reins properly?

    :lol:

    I don't feel that they are acceptable.

    Have you tried using braided reins? I find I get a much better grip with those than with laced reins (plus they're more attractive!).

    trubandloki, I had a lot of similar conversations to that when I would describe where I grew up (in Westchester, about an hour train ride from Manhattan).
