    But...

    Eventers are a very inclusive group. I have seen all kinds of horse/rider combinations competing and no one bats an eye. You have heard of Theodore O'Connor, right? If he could compete successfully...

    1) Don't sign up for those student loans. They are not worth it. Take longer to get through college if you have to, but pay as you go.

    I didn't see your post until after I had written mine. That's exactly the book I was referencing. It was just one picture, though. I don't know if it was actually common practice or not, but it...

    This is an interesting discussion. I have a book that talks about and pictures an orphan foal being draped in the skin of the mare's "stillborn" foal. The picture is very dated, and the book was...
