    This is 100% true.

    As you're strengthening the muscles that support the joints, this would be beneficial to someone with a hip replacement.

    I do the same basic weight routine as subk although...

    You need a helmet that fits. You might find in some models that what fits is a 7 and in others a 6 7/8 or 7 1/8. Those are small differences, and there is variation from brand to brand and model to...

    Based on his video, I'd say that Contiano BF has a jump that's not forward enough for eventing. He has a nice enough jump, but it's more 'up' than forward, he hangs a bit in the air. In eventing,...

    I'm surprised any of you knew what a 'set-up' is. I sure as heck didn't.
