    The trot is the least important of the gaits. What's her walk like? The walk is hard to improve and very easy to ruin.

    If an auto release were as easy to do as lying on your horse's neck, you'd see more people doing it. But... you don't. That's the long and short of it.

    I disagree. A square pad of any color is inappropriate in the show ring with hunter tack and attire.

    I think we may have outed ourselves as former (at least I am former) postal workers. :lol:

    NO, NO, NO, and NO!
    Registered mail is for items of value and moves under lock and key. You would have to pay $11.95 to send a registered letter with $0 declared value. I doubt that's what you...

    Why do you think we don't know this, or at least have free access to this information, already?

    Oh, I see. Once the prisoner is dead, s/he doesn't cost anything. Never mind that it cost millions more to get him or her dead than it would have to just keep him/her in prison. Alrighty, then.

    Not so. This is from the second article. It's very clear.

    There are dozens and dozens of sources that cite studies showing the same thing. But the thirst for blood is a powerful thing

    I don't know what "source" told you that, but there is tons of evidence to the contrary.

    I read it literally, and see it differently. She rode a different horse in the jumping phase than she did in the flat phase. Not allowed.
