    I hate that people are using this as a venue for why we shouldn't have horse shows, or shouldn't jump horses, or their general complaints about the show circuit. Tragedies happen whether a horse is...

    I would not do the Smartpak store without a car.

    Not because I have any clue of where it is, but because you need somewhere to store all the STUFF!

    I am the proud owner of a horse who would totally spook at a mule. Yanno, it would seem that that's MY problem, not anyone else's problem. He'd need to just get over himself.

    I recall one year at...

    It wasn't you, but there was definitely an odd dichotomy between the rider in full formal wear and the horse with nothing show-esque about him.

    As far as poms, at HITS once we did sparkle yarn....

    I saw a picture today of a beautifully jumping horse, rider well turned out in a shad... and the horse was unbraided. Don't do that. Don't ever do that.

    If it's bad enough, most people around here will cancel the show because they don't want the trailers absolutely ruining their fields and farm. But I agree with roamingnome - if the facility couldn't...

    I am not a huge fan of any kind of fasting. I don't think it's especially good for you and I know my body wouldn't respond well to it.

    That said, I do own a juicer and found that when I was...

    I'm a bit unclear - were they in the parking garage because parking garages are fun? Or were they there because the neighbor sort of corralled them? If they were walking, and he kept an eye on them...

    Um. I grew up in Silver Spring, MD, about a mile from that park where these kids were playing. We also went to the park by ourselves. It was not that long ago.

    Theoretically half chaps aren't for the show ring (and it's stated in the rules) - I've always found that if you know your measurements you might be able to find a pair that fits. Or go to a tack...

    If I paid full tack for all my quality tack, I'd be broker than broke. Horse goes in a mid-range saddle bought as a demo (Frank Baines) that fits him beautifully and rides like a sofa. I've had...

    Wait, she should submit to getting to the train an hour earlier so that she can avoid him?

    Probably better to try to solve the problem first, if possible. If he's krazy, it's probably not just the...

    I once was gifted a Montblanc from an office I worked in. To be perfectly honest, I'm not 100% sure where it is. I know I was scared of it and left its elegance in its case, and now it's hidden...

    It's not like other candidates haven't had kids or grandkids. I'm pretty sure Biden has like five of them. Palin's got a few, too. And IIRC, Reagan and several others had grandchildren.

    Balsamic is not vile, it's delicious! My SO gets some sort of delicious aged balsamic and puts it on everything. Last week he made a spinach and mango salad with fresh mozzarella and aged balsamic....

    I'm a big fan of a solid colored maxi dress for people that cannot seem to actually pin down a dress code. Then you dress it up or down with jewelry. It can go either way if it's the right dress and...

    I had one I was helping a friend sell. Mind you, all of my horses have generally been extensively trail ridden, most have hunted or gone out with hunt trail rides, done XC fences, and played with all...

    I did the Alexandria to Rockville commute for a year and a half. By a few months in I was ready to strangle someone.

    I have yet to find a pair of tall boots, except for a very old pair of dehner's that are a bit large on me, that don't rub my ankles. Someone on here once told me to use a pair of wrist sweatbands -...

    My thought was just that he was probably so well trained that it wasn't especially hard to get him jumping around a technical eq course in less than a month. More a testament to his previous trainers...

    I don't know where you are, but remember, the most important thing is that this is supposed to be fun. You are very clearly not having fun.

    I bought my car in white because it had the specs I wanted and the price I wanted, plus some sort of ridiculous metal thing on the front and back that makes me feel fierce. I dream about having it...
