    ... I can't be the only one out there who was sure that this thread was going a very different direction??

    Happy paddling, friends.
  2. Rain?

    Just saw some crazy video of parts of the farm show complex under water... Is it impacting the show at all yet??

    Hopefully the rain stops soon?!?

    I just bought the Ariats in a Wider width (C I think) and it was completely worth it! Talk to your tack shop or Dover-- they'll be able to help you out:)

    Not for nothing, I was unfortunate enough to leave the barn in an ambulance a year ago. Not only did my trainer not even imagine charging me for my car being there over night, but she found my keys...

    I'm 5'5" and went with the short, but in hindsight, wish I hadn't. It's a hair too short, and while its in the realm of acceptable, I wish it was an inch longer. I'm not doing enough showing to...

    As an Upstate NY'er, I second the recommendation for NEOs. I will even put them over my slippers for early morning chores or night check. They are outstanding.

    Agreed. I don't show enough to be a regular among the local rated shows. When I'm there, I try to blend in. Having anything but a full clip does not help that mantra.

    Do as you wish. If it's best...

    I can't imagine going to a show with 30 horses and 2 staff (trainer and barn manager?!) wow. Even with everyone doing self care that seems like a ton of horses and not a lot of help! Does trainer...

    I didn't break a clavicle, but have had two somewhat serious riding accidents in the last year involving broken bones, emergency room visits and one requiring a 4inch plate, 4 screws and 7 pins in my...

    Dehners. No question. The attention to detail and fit beats out any others I have worn. The comfort of the footbed alone was night and day to my ariats and the Spanish top is quite flattering for my...

    My biggest motivator is always to do it with friends!! I sometimes even challenge the kids who are hacking to a 'no stirrups war'! They usually win, and i usually end up owing someone a gatorade or a...

    Poll: No stirrups sore?

    Ok--
    When riding without Stirrups-- where do you get sore first?

    I just doubled over a black hair tie and use it as the keeper-- it works perfect.

    patience is key!!

    I waited about 6 weeks and I had my mom helping me to groom and tack up. It's not the riding that's hard-- it's the rest of it. The trickiest part of riding for me was actually...

    How about a book?

    I'm loving the Eighty Dollar Champion right now and I loved Sarah Gruen's Riding Lessons and Flying Changes (although MANY people on these boards hated those two).

    Good Luck!
    I didn't tear the ligament, but the ligament broke a chip of the bone off so the injury was a little different. I was casted for 14 weeks total and nothing healed, so (frustrated), I...

    I too got my up-down start at Jensens many moons ago... I'll never forget trying to keep Sugar or Justin away from the wall of hay. Or my first canter on Breezy. I couldn't for the life of me tell...
