    Don't worry about what Laurierace says. She seems to have nothing better to do than to go on these forums and rip people apart...much like many people on COTH.

    I too have been struggling with MAJOR health problems for the past 9 years; they likely aren't as life-threatning as yours, but life-altering, nonetheless. Finding a prospect is great, but you still...

    Where I leased two horses for 3.5 years, I wasn't allowed to go over ground poles outside of a lesson. Barn owner's rule. Practically unheard of, I know. It's part of the reason I stopped riding...
