    I am at a private farm so chatting isn't too big an issue for me.

    -Don't clean tack: I clean tack on the weekends and days where I am not in a rush. I would preferably clean my bridle every ride...

    Being fat, breeding and gelding late would have been my answers as well.

    Don't know what you talking about. Horse peeps are the best peeps. :cool:

    There are shady people in all walks of life. The horse world is just a smaller place I think.

    Agree with above posters that you may be overthinking it. I would focus on even distribution of thigh, knee, calf. Worrying about ankle contact may cause you to draw up and shorten your leg, which...

    I don't think you said what breed she is...what is she? She looks a lot like my guy so I was just curious.

    She's beautiful! She will make a lovely eq horse.

    Eq horses generally have a 'presence" in the ring but don't have to be beautiful movers or jumpers. If she is able to adjust smoothly she will be...

    I have had my horse since he was 4. I was the first one to jump him and have done the majority of his training/riding. He's 10 now and is such a saint. I often ask him how he ended up so awesome...

    This.

    What type of footing is it that you can't wait until after you cooled down your horse to pick up poop? Also, good footing is where I would want to lunge my excited horse...I get the raking...

    I personally like half seat because there is more variety to it and it allows me to do less with my hands.

    When I am constantly sitting I have to immediately go to my hands to slow down or...

    I don't think you can fault people for reacting different if there is video evidence vs. if the account is simply told to you. Domestic violence is gruesome and if you have not been exposed to it...

    I actually think synthetic pads looks nicer than the actually sheepskin. Brighter white and sharper looking!

    I moved from NC with my guy right in the smack middle of the Polar Vortex last year. Even with the wayyyyy below average temps in NC, VA, and MD it was much more brutal here in IN (in the -20s more...

    Vets wrap the front part of the stirrup bar so your stirrup rests farther back. Even a small amount will make a huge difference.

    I was terribly sick for about 4 1/2 weeks (stayed at home and in bed with no physical activity for 2 of those weeks :/)...Needless to say I have lost all core and thigh strength. Squats, planks, push...

    Don't know your horse but IME horses that are not happy to lift or be light in their front end are usually weak in their hind end (whether due to conformation or general fitness). I would put two...

    I think OP is concerned about her amateur status with the USEF so she can compete on her own outside of involvement with IHSA... I don't know the concrete answer to that but I would encourage you to...
