    I used to wear whatever.

    Then I groomed at WEF. :lol:

    ALWAYS a polo. Even if I'm just going to the barn to clean Dora's stall. I am not the barn owner, but I do have client horses there. I...

    Left long to an oxer and crashed. I saw it on the live feed and spoke with a friend that was there in person. The mare rolled right over on top of Debi. It was horrifying.

    Love that pic, TR :)

    I do 90% babies. I absolutely ADORE them! The two horses I've owned personally I purchased as yearlings and did everything with them, through jumping 2'6.

    I am doing the baby greens with Dora this weekend and it is listed as 2'0-2'3 and it is fully decorated. There are some gates but I don't think there are any walls. The verticals run about 2'3 and...

    I tried a new schedule this summer and I LOVE it! I have quite a few more to ride this year than I did last year, so I'm at the barn by 6 am and usually on Dora (she ALWAYS goes first ;) ) before...

    Pro Choice double elastic or classic equine soft touch double elastic.

    I had a few bad run-ins with Dora spooking and jumping sideways and my saddle slipping (with the girth super tight). I got a...

    Dora spent the winter at WEF in '08 barefoot. We did not show at all, but we did trail ride a lot. She was perfect barefoot (not so perfect at the first place I boarded because they let her pace the...

    Hold the end of the tail so the ends are pointed up in the air. Point your scissors straight down into the ends and snip away. Be careful you don't cut a huge chunk at once, it will leave an ugly...
  12. The cute buckskin mare - 10 months later. Critique my video please!

    So, I posted a thread with pics asking for a critique back in January. We've worked (a lot) since then. Unfortunately, the jump looks the same. Knees pointed down. Ugh. Maybe when we jump bigger or I...

    Thanks everyone for your input. :)
    The places I show are very casual, where a pro can get away with a polo and tan breeches, so I think I'd be pretty safe with these and a jacket.
    However, I think...

    well, I can't see the link because I'm on my phone, but it is VERY faint. More faint in person than in the pic I saw on TOTD. For the record, I am the trainer, and I ONLY show babies, mostly just to...

    AHHH I want the greys SOOO bad and now they're in low rise! However, I've been lusting over the embossed ones for years. It was a painful decision to only order one pair today :(

    When just the things you're wearing on the lower half of your body to go to the barn (Breeches $150 + Belt $50 + Paddock boots $200 + Half chaps $150 = $550) Cost more than ALL of your dress clothes...

    Must be a marketing ploy.

    All I own is a sponge, a bar of glycerine soap (which only makes an appearance on RARE occasions, like when I skip wiping down my bridle for a few rides), and a quart of...
