    This. When you're going to extremes just to find a way to ride your own horse 5x a week, it's harder to justify going to audit clinics when nowadays you can watch as much as your heart desires at 1AM...

    As a frequent traveler, IMO the best sartorial etiquette one can have while flying is to wear things that will not slow up your fellow passengers in the TSA security line. So slip-on shoes under...

    I disagree with the mare thing. I've known lots of opinionated young mares -- in fact I own one -- but some of the best "caretaker" horses I've known have been older mares. So IMO it can go either...

    It's definitely do-able. I live and work a classic 8-5-type job in the heart of downtown and I make it work, generally riding 5x a week unless traveling for work. I know others who make it happen,...

    I've noticed that hill work is helping my mare a lot with this particular stage of training. We've been doing lots of lateral work and transitions on hills of various slopes. The half-steps with my...

    These are my thoughts from years of stalking sales ads before buying my horse:

    My preference is for a single-shot video. When there are a bunch of edits, I wonder exactly how much footage it took...

    6-ish months? I own an extra-wide, sprung-ribbed barrel with legs so it's super awkward and uncomfortable. I do ride without stirrups a lot though.

    Personally, I wouldn't feel comfortable doing it. I barely feel comfortable at home around close friends with bare toenails!! I've actually never seen anybody at work with open-toed shoes and bare...

    These are a few of the things I see in effective riders:

    I didn't care for it. Although it was plenty conditioning, I could never get my hair clean and it would look dirty almost immediately after washing. I tried and tried to get it to work because I love...

    Oh and for your actual specific request for a moisturizer with sunscreen that may help lighten dark spots, perhaps try this. Murad gets the PETA thumbs-up, and this is a moisturizer with SPF. I...

    I am a makeup nut and collect and try brands across the spectrum, and the products below happen to be among my favorites. I just did some google searching to see which are cruelty-free, although I...

    I think it's kind of exciting. I'm guessing it's probably a little less cost-prohibitive than some other places it could have gone. I might actually be able to afford to make a nice trip of it with...

    Since I live somewhere cold and wintery, it would be close to a dealbreaker for me especially if there were other good boarding options in my area. If I were somewhere warmer, where I could reliably...

    I think Virginia did secede? Or are you referring to MD?

    IMO Virginia is Southern (and often proudly so) when you get out of the DC/NoVA area and can also be called Mid-Atlantic. Northern Virginia...

    I love saying no! I find people are often so surprised to hear an unapologetic, blunt "no" that they actually just laugh and aren't offended at all.

    You can water down dressing a bit to make a smaller volume of it spread over more lettuce. I also think adding a little fruit like pineapple, strawberries or mandarin oranges can help add a little...

    I'm a flipper. If I learned how to do it, it was so long ago that I no longer remember an actual learning process. I don't think about it. It just kind of happens by instinct or magic or something.
