    Same here! I was taught that dismount by a Hungarian who attended the SRS (probably the sister school in Budapest). I still dismount that way, unless I'm dismounting from the "wrong" side. Which I...

    Having done cattle gathers, brandings, vaccinations, dipping and all the rest, I don't think of it as a "vacation". The real deal is hard work.

    We used to get "cowboys" from Denver (friends of one...

    I took part in group lessons in Minnesota at two different barns. Other days, I took privates or semi-privates. In the group lessons, we'd ride "follow the leader" style -- if the leader was told to...

    I just purchased a bumper sticker that says" Am I driving too close in front of you?"

    KL Carp, yes Cavallo does have a coat in the lighter, washable fabric. It's a beautiful coat. I too prefer the longer coats and, much as i loved my old Pikeur, could no longer stand the warm wool.

    Too late for that, don't you think? Why just Texas? How about Ohio, too?

    I also don't understand why she couldn't have used her "outside" voice to school you both. At the very least, YOU should have gotten the earphone first since you rode first. Once you're ready to...

    I had a colonoscopy when I was in my early 50's. Never again. IMO, no need to, as colon cancer does not run in my family. I had three tiny benign polyps. I figure it took me 50 years to grow those...

    Agree. I leave my guy's whiskers on, showing or not. Coach and some of her other riders tsk-tsk over the whiskery wonderfulness. I do not care. Those are feelers and I think horses need them.

    No, we hauled from Fort Worth to Denver with a Dodge Coronet 440 wagon. The trailer was a WW two horse. It was 1967.

    I'm considering a roach on my Hanoverian for next year. We do dressage. My coach's old horse was roached for most, if not all, of his dressage career, but he had a WIIIIIDE mane. Me? I'm just sick...

    I put my lazy Hanoverian gelding on Lixitinic. His energy level is MUCH better now.

    Yep! I like the Whinny Widgets straps -- they have a bit of elastic at either end and are a tad longer than many grab straps. Sometimes all you need is to hook your pinky finger around the strap to...

    Thanks for that Lisa Lockhart clip, Beau159. Pretty run, and as she's 5th in the world, that proves you don't have to rip, flap and fly to get the job done.
