    Guess I should have said white evangelical Christian instead. That probably would have provoked a run on Kevlar.

    [quote=Pony Person;4881301]That may be, but what the hell does a racist remark have to do with wearing/not wearing a helmet?:confused:

    For those who hold a reasonable viewpoint on helmet...

    Sooooooo, some of you are willing to stand up on your hind legs and screech about anybody not wearing a helmet while riding horses, but you howl about somebody being "racist" if they wanted to wear...

    Some of you better not be walking around in any major metropolitan area without wearing a Kevlar vest (just in case some [edit] guy goes on a drive-by shooting spree) or without a CCW (just in case...

    Before horses could be safely put under a general anesthetic, they sometimes did "standing castrations" that IIRC, involved a local anesthetic. Wasn't a guarantee heads wouldn't get kicked, but it...

    Except that you wouldn't be saving anybody in the horse community any suffering. You'd just be reducing the competition for the ones you didn't kill. But hey, why let reality mess with a perfectly...

    Satisfaction out of life comes from inner grace, not outer activity.

    There would be a lot of stuff that wouldn't get done if everybody insisted on "fulfillment" by making their living doing...

    Well, dearie, welcome to the world men have been living in forever -- doing a job you don't particularly like, but when bills have to be paid and (maybe) a family has to be provided for, you do what...

    I'm dealing with a real gem of a "seller" right now.

    I put the word out through the grapevine that I have somebody looking for a good pony. One of the branches of that grapevine encountered "Gem...

    There's a lot of truth to the saying that good judgment comes from experience -- and a lot of that experience comes as a result of bad judgment.

    The trick is knowing when "bad judgment" is the...

  13. Riders shouldn't be pushed to the breaking point...

    Riders shouldn't be pushed to the breaking point any more than horses should be. I'd say your trainer missed a chance to back off, talk you down off your ledge, and start again from the last point...

    Well, that's kinda the whole point of having a stallion.

    If he's worth breeding, he's worth having a purchase price. If you wanted him to end up in an "elite" sport horse breeding program,...

    It wasn't so long ago that horsey women were going nuts for overpriced second-rate imported warmbloods so they could say they "did dressage" on a rare, extra fancy breed.

    It was fairly recently...

    If the horse acts like a moron, yes -- unless I decide I don't want the horse at any price.

    I'm currently looking for a couple of buyers and I've gone from having $1500 to spend to I will not buy...

    I've had some with manes that I could put on whatever side I wanted and it would stay. Where the horse wore it depended on which side of the bed he got up on (or how vigorously he shook when he got...

    What does a "4-horse slant stock combo gooseneck" look like? I'm in the "when I have a little more money, I'll go shopping" territory. This configuration sounds interesting.
