    Okay... I think this just explained how you are misunderstanding my feelings here. I'm not saying "Someone should make this happen for me or someone should create a show just for me". I understand...

    Uh, yes? That's the point here. If someone wants to do something it would be nice if they would be able to, correct? That's my frustration. I want to and I can't. I don't see how genuinely wanting to...

    You know... I just typed a brief, polite, rational response to this to try to understand where you're coming from on the accusations of my "sense of entitlement". But then I realized that it would...

    We have a ton of the typical, shaped Tory girths. Think they're like $50 at the local tack store. Real leather, never had a problem with them and we use them on all kinds of horses (TB's, Arabs,...

    -sigh- I've been able to muffle the frustration during the school year by telling myself that lots of people take a break or have to cut back on showing during college. But then the other side of me...

    I'm a full time student during the regular school year. I do not want to take off school time for a WS position because I don't want to be in school any longer than normal. I am planning on doing my...
  7. Am I being too hard on myself/setting my goals too high?

    This is a bit of a vent... and somewhat of a condensed version of the story of my (riding) life.

    I've been riding for almost 12 years now. Progress was slow for atleast the first half of that time...

    Many of the buildings that go down due to heavy snow are wood framed. Wood framed buildings, although cheaper and seen as more attractive by some, are much weaker than steel framed. The arena at my...

    Yeah, let me clarify that. A single team member is not responsible for all that equipment. It's just the idea of having to whip out this mile long list of little, unneeded items, making sure nothing...

    I was in PC for 5 or 6 years. Joined a year after I began riding as my trainer lead what was at one point the biggest club in the Tri-State region. Long story short it all collapsed around 2005/2006...

    Almost as bad as the time my trainer's horse received a serious tail banging from an unknown stylist at a horse trial. Honest to god, they came back and his tail was cut off. No clue who did it.

    1. Didn't include this, forgot. The other rider from my barn was a late entry so I did not know she was coming when I entered. The entry forms did not even ask if there were other riders you wanted...

    Yes. I said that... the horses are stabling at the second facility Tuesday night so that they'll be there Wednesday morning. Getting the horses there is not the issue. Getting myself there is.

    Either we are not thinking of the same clinic or you heard wrong. Stabling at the XC facility is not free. The rate has nothing to do with it... the horse is only stabling one night at the XC...

    Am I rightfully mad about this?

    This may turn into a rant real easily... I'm fuming.

    I am riding in a two day clinic next week that takes place at two facilities. The woman, the BM of the facility that is hostingthe clinic on...

    Since Tru passed, every horse I ride is someone else's. And I ride 4 or 5 days a week right now, sometimes up to 3 horses a day. So I get a lot of variety, but I love it.

    I'll just say this. Having grown up in a barn where no one is dressing in matching outfits and wearing polos and high boots for lessons, but were all classically taught, and can kick some major...

    It's http://www.ehsc-lhpc.org and they go up to Intermediate, not sure about Advanced. It's a smaller venue, doesn't attract any big names or anything, but they run two HT's a year.

    Not only does one's riding apparel depend on where they are riding, but what else they do while at the barn. I don't know about you guys but I typically do atleast 2 hours of stall cleaning and other...

    I agree. I very irritated watching people fly through BN. It's BN for a reason people... it's an introduction. Unless you're riding like a 13h pony you can trot/canter XC in time. Frankly, I think...

    Doing BNH in your first season could, to be a honest, end up rather depressing. There's a good chance depending on where you go that you will totally get your butt kicked. Not that you're a bad...
