    I use BoT products, but not the quick wraps, so I haven't ever looked at them to see how they are constructed.

    When I looked at the pictures, the first thought I had was that it looked like...

    I thought about doing this - but the cheapest supplement that falls under this program is still over $40 a month, and it must be purchased in smartpak form - bucket ordering does not meet the...

    I will echo this. I am now a dressage rider. Rode eventers for years as a teenager/young adult. Once you get really hurt a time or two, you'll often lose some of your nerve. At 16, you're...

    I think part of the point to the rule, at rated shows anyway, is that dressage is supposed to be about the progressive training of the horse. As you said - it is about the feedback, not about the...

    Patently not true. I live in a relatively competitive region. Particularly in the AA divisions, a correctly trained, accurately ridden test will get you good ribbons and placings, up to and...

    I had a old Courbette - with foam. I really liked the saddle - but it was hard as a rock by 5 years in. It would have been a great lesson saddle, forgiving to a bunch of different types of riders,...

    Ditto. In fact, I'll raise you euros to croissants that they don't get repairs done - they just trade 'em in for a new one.

    Oh, no - I totally understand that HC scores wouldn't count. My point, obviously poorly explained, was that I would be willing to pay & ride it - and do so HC so as to not be taking my PSG horse in...

    Other than the rare "my horse went lame at the show", I'm not understanding the big d*mn deal. This has been a rule, like, forever. It's not like they snuck this through on us at the last convention...

    I get that mechanic BF knows what the weight limitations are - but one thing he is not considering is that horses are a "live" load. You don't strap them down and they never move an ounce until you...

    One year I spent 6 hours on a Friday evening booking a Mexico trip and was on the plane at 7AM the next morning.

    Only real packing snafu was the only pair of flip flops that I packed was one shoe...

    I tend to agree with those that say that no wraps/boots offer support. That said, my horse wears the Equilibrium boots on all four legs. I put them on to avoid a occasional rub or bump that might...

    OP very well may have been advised by an attorney to stop posting about this online, as it seems that alter or not, enough details were posted for locals to know of whom she was speaking.

    It took me three months to get a refund for a health insurance policy that I cancelled. Interestingly, it was a much less painful process to get a partial month refund from Progressive - the money...

    So happy for you that it did not even take to the end of the month! And she was the one being a child about the whole thing. Did she think she was going to live with you two in some weird commune...

    I would also add to those who are being cautious - if you do decide to do something personal - make sure it is early in the day - as RHRT said, it could get very emotional and you want to give your...

    I wish I had insisted on my husband living on his own before we got married. In our case it was not about money, but about living like a grown-up. Laundry, dishes, cleaning, etc. All the stuff...

    Good for you. And regardless of some of the histrionics about giving her only 24 hours to move out - good for you for giving her a couple weeks to get herself moved out.

    Definitely keep on her...

    Bullmastiff - my guy is a Newcastle.

    He is still intact so in theory he could still be shown, but at 5 1/2 he is much happier sleeping on his back on my sofa than he ever would be at a show. He...

    Ameriprise through Costco. Insanely cheap. Half of what I had been paying prior, and that rate was with a brand new, less than 6 month old, $5k collision claim on my record.
