    The sport is not my cup of tea but if I was going to live the life of an international level competition horse I would honestly choose to be an endurance horse (for a N American rider at least). ...

    Cutting grass and weed whacking in summer, plowing the seemingly endless snow in winter. Especially last winter, I think we plowed the driveway to barn practically every other day. It was madness.

    I too have had a lot of success with the "tap tap tap I am going to stand here all day and annoy you until you get in the trailer" method. But this frequent falling is a red flag for me too. I don't...

    I have switched from h/j to dressage and now maybe sorta back to hunters. Just enough to get my dressage horse jumping a bit. Do yourself a favour and adjust your stirrups gradually. Your knees...

    Same rule here but I do everyone's laundry and husband does not believe in keeping money in wallets. I do pretty well off pocket checking ;) At Easter and Halloween I also impose the PCT. ...

    Probably Axe. It is vile and should be a prohibited substance. My own 12 yr old, god help me, went thru an Axe phase. He seems to be getting over it except that he still likes to spray it on the...
