    You sound like the perfect daughter.

    I have only one question: are you available for adoption?

    As promised, two more videos:

    1. This is my other ride. If you discount appearances, gender and size, he's actually a lot like Zizi. He's one of the most forward horses I've ever sat on, even...

    :lol:



    Apparently, Melanie Smith Taylor hasn't seen this thread.

    I do too have a hairnet. But I left it at home. I always wear a hairnet in competition because the scraggly Eurogirl look...

    I'm in Southern Pines, where it's ~90F every day. Heat doesn't really bother me, although I've learned from really hot places (like Egypt) to cover most exposed skin.

    No doubt.

    But Massarella was chef for 30+ years, and was very open about his views. He retired not all that long ago so this was well into an era when overt sexism was frowned on. And sued in...

    So I post a video of myself riding and I get a fashion question? Did you wander over here from the h/j board? :lol:

    I had to watch the video again because I had no idea what I was wearing. That...
  8. little black pony with hapless primate aboard: updated, new videos post #24

    I rode Zizi today. Over some little jumps. :D

    I don't ride her often because she has Glenbaer plus occasional sessions with JMP, so I don't want to confuse Zizi's impeccable training.

    But...

    I don't know. Maybe it's the Saumur/military influence? There are women in show jumping and dressage (not that elite dressage is a French specialty). But time and time again, French teams are all...

    Pippa Funnell/Billy Beware are out of WEG with an injury. This means Team GB will be naming two replacements -- one for her and one for Izzy Taylor, who also withdrew. More here.

    I'd go back at least another generation. You really want to know where the blood comes from and how it's combined. A designation like 'Holsteiner' doesn't mean much on its own to a breeder, and the...

    Shamwari is by a TB stallion out of a mare who is 1/2 Hann, 1/2 Trakehner. He's probably approx 5/8 - 3/4 blood. Most of that blood would be TB but probably also some ox due to the Trakenher...

    Thank you!

    And I promise you it works, even though there's always have a million micro-moments of self-doubt and frayed patience. Like I said, when the doubts and hopelessness creep in, I...

    I decided to investigate the mysterious sport of lawn-bowling. It's a core sport of the Commonwealth Games, which means they have to offer it no matter what.
