    I don't mind the few questions, but I only want to go through that ONCE with one person. My trainer likes to do that if you are on the ground, although it can take me a couple minutes to figure out...

    This is what Mythbusters has to say:

    Steel-toe boots are more dangerous to your toes than normal boots when a heavy weight is dropped on them. Whereas a normal boot would just crush your toes, a...

    Ditto about the steel toecap boots. I think I recall that not only can the edge of the steel cap get squished into your foot, the edge can also provide "leverage" for the edge of the horse's foot if...

    Thanks!
  6. I know I shouldn't beat myself up, but I WANNA RIDE!

    Saturday and yesterday were the first two times I have gotten to ride since the end of November, right before I had rotator cuff surgery on Dec. 2. I'm not nearly as sore as I thought I would be,...
  7. Further Questions

    Is "fluid alignment" something like an oil change? Or is it more like a grease job?

    What kind of vegetable is a horse/rider alignment wrench made of?

    Miss Alignment firmly stated that she...

    Another vote for Kim Severson. I think she is probably the best instructor I have ever had. We are fortunate to be near where she stays during the warmer months and often take advantage of...

    I think self-centered douchenozzles (or SCD's) should hereby be added to the list.:winkgrin:

    Thanks, Dressage Geek. Apparently there were some major squabbles going on, and I didn't even get it!

    Geez, I better get myself signed up at the Thelwell School of Horse Communicating right away....
  11. Odd Spinoff--Horse and Rider "Out of Alignment"

    Hi!

    My name's Scootie and I'm a trainwreckaholic.

    So I've been lurking on the Parelli thread and something reminded me of something that happened last year that I have wondered about.

    I'm curious as to how they fit in the foot. I need that wide of a calf but it does me no good if the footbed is the least bit narrow so I can't get my foot in them!

    Thanks.

    Right now in Southern Albemarle County, VA it's still coming down hard. We have at least a foot and a half in my front yard, in my estimation. When I let my dog out to pee it was over her back and...

    HEE HEE HEE!

    Many years ago we got stuck in the driveway due to massive snow accumulation and couldn't get out for a week or so, I can't really remember. This was right after my ex-husband...

    Well, Mr. Scootie is pretty confident about driving in snow, to the point of a fault. Which is probably a good thing since he is not back yet. I'm making a point of not allowing myself to get...

    The water bucket pooper at "my" barn has moved out. I learned he had this habit the hard way shortly after I started working there on Sundays. It was gross to put it mildly. He only did this...

    Eventer13, my sentiments exactly. I confess I'm a relative newbie to the horse show world, and I've never gotten the clucking before the jump routine. Sometimes I think the added distraction can...

    You are making some very good points. While I might go as far as to say something to the effect that you can't ride without a helmet on any horse or property of mine, I'm not going to get involved...

    I don't know if this will help, but I've seen some thingamajiggers advertised that you can put in your helmet to help keep your head cool. Sorry if I sound like I'm trying to meddle, but I have had...

    May, I thought your question was a very good one. Sorry that the word "helmet" seems to be one that sparks the same old tired quarrel that has nothing to do with the actual situation.

    Unto the simple all things are simple.
