    I bought a higher end Bosche ($1100) four years ago and have been amazed. If I had only known how great it would be I would have bought one years ago. The dishes come out vastly more clean and it...

    Sounds like you are working too hard. You don't need to lift yourself, the movement of your horses hindquarters is all the lift you need. It's more a process of relaxing your body more and waiting...

    Leg swing can also occur as a result of shifting your grip to your thighs and knees, effectively bringing your lower leg off the horse. Just another thought. Remember your thighs should lay on the...

    It can work if you totally accept who he is as he is and if he does likewise. If you go into it thinking one of you is going to change the other, it probably won't work. So if you decide to be with...

    For what it's worth every hunt has their own interpretation of the rules so don't think what you read on here is going to apply at the hunt you're going to. When in doubt contact the hunt secretary...

    My spouse (who is a non-rider) is 200% supportive of my horse addiction. I am retired so it is definitely easier for me to balance my time. I do go to the barn 5 days a week. That being said, I...
  11. Praise the Lord, Hunt season is just around the corner!

    OK so we'll be cubbing but I am so happy! Checking my tweeds, found two buttons that need to be sewed on. Got all my hunt tack out and checked. (Off season I use different tack). Found my flasks. ...

    You really need to get some qualified therapy. Talking to your friends or to us here on COTH will not get you the help you need. There is a reason you feel emotionally stuck and you need...

    I avoid asphalt like the plague. When I have to cross it I pause my horses and say "careful-slippery" and I swear they tippy toe oh so carefully. I do the same thing crossing ice. That top...

    I have a friend who uses them for dresses when she has to go to formal events. Her daughter is a model in NYC and she told her mom about it. So far my friend has had excellent experiences with them.

    If my mare has been stuck inside due to weather, she will start to nod vigorously when I'm in the vicinity, then she grabs her halter off the hook with her teeth and flings it at me, usually she hits...
