    You simply tell them what you told us. CALL them with the non-emergency number (or stop by) and say that you had a frightening experience with someone acting strangely and potentially threateningly...

    I was in CO a few years back heading to the hot springs in Ouray. All the sudden the jeep a bit in front of us slammed on its brakes. As we slammed on ours, a large grizzly jumped up from the side of...

    I took a women's self defense class a while back, the main principle of which was that attackers are looking for people who will not put up a fight and/or will be quiet and passive to avoid...

    You know what, for every person out there who likes adventurous canoeing, there's another person who is more traditional in their tastes. And you know what, that's okay. Posts like these perpetuate...

    But why is the rum gone?

    Pirates, of course. Said often. :winkgrin:

    I, too, *hate* throwing up and it gives me anxiety. I panic if I know anyone who is sick, if I have the slightest twinge of a stomach ache I freak out, I often think about where I would go or what I...

    Are you sure it's a groin pull?

    I had what I thought was a groin pull a few years back. The pain migrated from the upper adductors to the lower abdominal muscles. I did months of PT to no avail,...

    One more thought - if he is herd bound, I would add a second training session every day, but unmounted. Help him learn that leaving his buddies is part of the routine, and that he must focus and...

    I would definitely suggest doing some ulcer treatment. In my opinion, with the various stresses on competition horses and their far-from-natural lifestyle, it's something that we should all keep in...

    My thought would be that sometimes we can spend too much money on diagnostics. Tests & science can only go so far - and a lot of times, the tests are wrong or they say that there isn't a problem when...

    Agree to full vet workup. Not just an eyeball, but full flexions and have the vet watch the horse under tack. Use a good lameness vet.

    At this point I wouldn't proceed any farther unless the vet...

    Remember that, with some exceptions, of course, the bit is only as harsh as the hands that hold it.

    If you are riding with two reins, put the top rein on the snaffle ring and the second rein on...

    I agree with much of the advice but have a caveat.

    The horse business is a different sort of animal, and much of what "goes" in the horse world would never fly in most other business industries....

    Correct. Both sole proprietorships and single member LLCs are flow through entities that end up on the Schedule C of a 1040 (individual's tax return).

    An LLC provides protections so that the...

    If you're not married, you don't have an obligation to stay with him. I firmly believe it's better to be single than to be in the wrong relationship. The latter just isn't fair to either party. It...

    Hugs and love to you Sannois.

    I also recommend finding a church. Even if you don't believe in God or don't align with the beliefs of the church that's available to you. The community and the...

    We are a society constantly led to believe that the individual is the most important thing. Other people should stop things that annoy ME. People should/shouldn't do XYZ because I like them/don't...

    So the nurses apparently recognized that proper procedures weren't being followed and yet at least one nurse thought it fine to travel?? :eek:

    You can bet your a$$ that if I had any doubts about...

    I use Shea Moisture shampoo and conditioner which is sulfate free and free of many other chemicals and irritants. I also use jojoba and coconut oils as scalp/hair conditioners.

    I actually disagree that your leg is yucky.

    You have really nice proportions and look pretty on a horse. Your leg lays nicely as well.

    Trigger's shape and balance is not helping you (as cute...
  22. Being tall and all leg is an advantage, if...

    Being tall and all leg is an advantage, if anything, particularly if you have a shorter upper body. I know men well over 6' that are effective riders with correct positions.

    It's impossible to...

    I agree with PNWJumper. There are horses that don't fit into a certain box and do better with unorthodox preparation. Not to mention, it's better to have more classes than LTD & Drugs and endless...

    Does your trainer ride your horse regularly? Or maybe she doesn't ride since you said you sent him to a pro for a week?

    An issue like you've described isn't necessarily going to be fixed in a week...

    Healthy, quick lunches can literally be anything! You just have to retrain your brain. It does take time to make the lunches and you have to be intentional about getting things from the store each...
