    Weddings are horribly expensive. Going to a wedding alone where you are the only person there without a date is awful. Particularly if you don't know people very well.
    My general rule of thumb...

    Flame suit on. I'll be the slight voice of dissent. Two years ago, my dog's long time vet (large practice with multiple vets) suggested for the first time that it may be time for a dental because...

    I'm not sure why some of you are getting so upset. I supspect that most ULR's know approximately where the quality of their dressage work is in comparison to international standards at any given...

    Let's not forget that they've also managed to have the sport fundamentally changed to favor their technical skills and horse base, so it's more that they're awfully competitive now that the sport has...

    I've noticed that a few of our pairs who are historically competitive internationally are scoring significantly worse this year in the US than they have at previous international competitions. ...

    I think there are two types of suggestions in this thread:

    1-Porta Potty related BS (pun intended)
    2-Competition Related.

    I cannot believe that there are people on here demanding flushable...

    I really do not want riders feeling the extra pressure of knowing where they will be in the final standings during the xc phase. I hate the idea of adding jump off like pressure to a xc ride just to...

    I suspect it's the latest step toward eliminating CCI's with SJ last entirely. If you no longer care about how a horse comes out of XC, and you want to test SJ ability isolated, then of course you'd...

    I audited a couple and thought her exercises were helpful but she definitely takes more interest in some pairs than others and she didn't always have sufficient patience for horses with issues. I saw...

    I wish h would stick with the helmet. Not only does it set a good example, I think he looks totally bada$$ in the helmet with the new shades and beyond doofy in the top hat.

    The counter argument to this would be that almost all of the top riders in the US were working students at some point. I'm not sure why that is the case but off the top of my head I couldn't think...

    I think this is a good post. I think some trainers do get caught up in telling the rider what to achieve (i.e. take up contact, be more round) instead of what or how to get there. It's like issue...

    The OP is NOT GM, and again, there are many pro's who would not take a quirky big time horse to a GM clinic because they wouldn't want to disrespect him ever but also wouldn't want a set back in the...

    The problem with rewarding extra points to third level horses showing at training level in a third level frame is that it sets the standard of competition. It leads to everyone else pushing training...

    And I can't believe some of these later posts. The OP is new to this pair. The rider has been successfully competing at a fairly high level safely. The OP sounds like the type of instructor who...

    Going to a doctor in a foreign undeveloped country can be scary. I understand completely why the OP let her in-laws and spouse talk her out of it. Also, being sick by yourself at home is also...

    Don't you know. Only the man of the house is allowed to invite people over. Any guests not cleared with the man of the house should expect to be shot on sight, no questions asked.

    Prize money (other than at the very top levels-i.e. Rolex, AEC's) comes from the pockets of the competitors. It raises the entry fee of 100 competitors by $50 to hand out $500 to 10 riders. The...
  23. Why does it matter?

    It doesn't bother me at all. If it's a total beginner rider describing a lesson horse, I assume the rider lost their balance and fell off.
    If it's an intermediate rider, I assume the horse bucked...

    You need to create some incentive for people to show who can't win. More feedback, more challenging courses, less hurry up and wait, more ceremony and spectacle. Less prize money in the lower...
