    While this is fair, my logic went something like this:
    Will my life ever be less complicated than it is right now?

    Super unlikely. My job will get more demanding the longer I work. I may have a...

    The benefit: free leases = 0 capital cost of entry to the horse biz for the lessee. The owner is taking all financial risk-- it's equally likely (or maybe even more likely) that the horse isn't...

    I'm currently in a similar boat. Work full-time, employer is sponsoring my technical masters, the 2 dogs need daily walks if possible, and I like to show my horse.

    Hate to say it... but most of this sport is "all the same things". Straightness. Suppleness. Engagement. Rinse, repeat. The only thing that changes up the levels is that it gets a bit more...

    The world is different with sportponies. Different in a great, colorful way.

    I'm cnm161, and I definitely put the change on my young horse early, and I ride dressage. Wonder if I'm too old, underconfident, and lacking in an educated seat.

    The different disciplines do...

    The market that is interested in heavy and hairy is not the market that is interested in TBs. (generalization alert!) They are interested in the heavy and hairy horse for looks and (perceived)...

    I got my now-GP horse when he was 2nd level (so it's not like he wasn't wise to the ways of collection). However, I had a helluva time getting a flying change installed. He could counter canter all...

    I think it's also important that we, as horse owners, ensure our horse's best odds of surviving a catastrophic fiscal event via training. I'm not talking just under saddle, and I know that not every...

    As far as I can tell, the rule change is to address the potential of maybe someone getting what is believed to be a scoring benefit. Which, to me, is something that should stay a suggestion and not...

    With respect to the saddle pad thing (which I just can't let go), I'm a bit bothered that the rule change was due to "the concern of the...

    I'm a little confused with the logic behind allowing breed/barn logos and banning monogramming. Why does the concern about the appearance of influence on judges extend to individual riders but not...

    Sancudo-- such a bummer! I think we've all been where you are (uh... except for the small tour success!), and it universally sucks (except the small tour success!!).

    I'm moving my horse to a new barn for precisely this reason. So many people in my current barn are overhorsed and undertrained, it's become a safety risk for everyone. I can't fix "the problem"--...

    While that's true, it's not unique to dressage. It's not rare for pro jumper riders to have more than one horse in a class; it is rare for them to have the same quality of performance on both horses....

    Short answer for me: there's a lot of different ways to get in the 60s... not so much for the 90s.

    My gelding was an 8s-and-4s horse in the lower levels-- we were either brilliant or rubbish. I...

    Minor quibble. That article indicates that some earthquakes are linked to wastewater injection wells, not fracking. Two different mechanisms. The pressure induced on the formations by fracs is...

    This was a fun exercise in ascribing intent ("To up the dead cop numbers and fake them") that was not present in my post. Isn't that what you accuse others of doing?
