    And SOME take absolutely wonderful care of the horses and appropriately retire them when it is their time to do so.

    Almost all of the horses died in Sanford, and all of them had injuries from debris. It was tragic. The majority of them were outside and were impaled by flying debris. There were a few horses stabled...

    Ditto! I looked at both SBC and Hollins, but ultimately went with Hollins and it was the best decision I have ever made. The best years of my life.

    This is not true for every or even MANY people with autism. Just like everyone else, they all think and learn differently.

    This is exactly how it is at Hollins, too. Definitely not a club. Riding is the most competitive sport on campus.

    But it is NOT considered a "club" at many schools, it is considered a varsity sport. That is what Ammy's question was really about on the original thread.

    Yes, its incorrect. It varies by school. At the school I went to (Hollins), we did IHSA (as well as going to rated shows and doing the adults etc), but it was most definitely considered a Varsity...

    I'm going to guess that the lack of testing was in relation to requests from those that graciously donate horses for the event. When every single class gets tested, it really gets to be an extremely...

    Lessons on a school horse or something I could lease or borrow. My horse will not be coming with me. Showing is currently not a priority for me, but I would like it to be an option for the future.
