    I've been by once, to watch a jumper class. You can stand on the rail, a horse can canter past and you can't hear his feet hit the ground. The footing seems wonderful.

    I thought it was about having consistent speed and rhythm. So, instead of teaching a student how to judge pace, the trainer sets up a line, says do x number strides between here and here, and off...

    Chachie-the Empower Boost is a fat supplement, the Balance is the ration balancer.

    My dressage instructor keeps insisting that the mystical gadget would be my leg-as in on my horse, riding him correctly to my hand. The Dutchman and I attain this mystery for about 30 seconds, then...

    I agree-let the next person figure out where to put it.

    Myself, I'd end up using lots of recyclable paper plates until then!

    I love the big stove, and wish I had the double drain porcelain sink again.

    If it suits you, let the next cook do whatever suits them. For myself, I do require a dishwasher. I'll scrub buckets...
