    One can also hop on an online BB to proclaim the purity of one's politics and argue with other people about it, can't one? :yes:

    Seriously? My husband was self-employed for 40+ years and always had health insurance. ACA has nothing to do with Mack's unfortunate circumstances. Not having medical insurance was his personal...

    Grapefruit sections tossed with avocado. The creamy/bland avocado goes perfectly with the bite of the citrus. Great for breakfast or as a side salad.

    For me, it's to learn how to ride, not how to warm up my horse. I know how to do that. And if my warm up wasn't working, I know my instructor would talk to me about it. And I'd listen.

    BTW, my...

    I don't vent on a forum, but how do YOU know I don't pout? ;)






    Or figure it out for herself ... that would be another option.

    I certainly don't know better than my instructor. But she would be the first to tell you I know my horse better than she does. And if I think he needs X amount of warm-up on a given day because...

    I have an enormous amount of admiration for anyone who rides despite a physical disability. My hat is off to you.

    That said, many of your pronouncements are based on a lot of reading and very...

    I do that, too. I have been taking lessons from a "real" dressage trainer for 2 years after 5 years with a jack of all trades. Both have been very helpful, but there is a BIG difference in...

    By yelling, if you mean between raising the voice to be heard or to emphasize a point, that doesn't bother me at all. I have tinittus and my instructor HAS to raise her voice at times so I can hear...

    Just because it's the right doesn't mean it's the easy. You have my deepest sympathy and sincere admiration.

    That is the understatement of the year ... so far. ;)

    It takes little effort and zero talent to read about dressage and look at pictures of people riding dressage.

    Anyone who can do better...

    Thanks for posting that video, alicen. It shows very clearly what I was thinking about posting and couldn't find the right words. And it's always a treat to see Ingrid K ride.

    I'm 62 and my hair just keeps getting blonder and blonder. On the plus side, there aren't as many dark roots to cover, so I don't have to get it highlighted as often. :)

    I didn't start riding until I was in my mid-forties, too. So I know how you feel.

    Fortunately, My horse doesn't really buck much -- he's more of a crow hopper when he's unhappy, but he can get...

    I'm sure at least one of those chatty riders at my barn is on the quarter line. Is there a rule about walkers riding single file? ;)

    Gelding owner needs to learn the concept of personal space for equines. If there is room to give a wide berth, do it. If there isn't, change your route.

    Clearly and politely.

    It would be rude to do otherwise. They are, after all, expressing interest in something I love.
