    I'm not allowed to let the horse I ride stop on his own accord to poop (because he would be the horse who uses it as an evasion all. the. time.), but when he starts and if I can navigate off the rail...

    ...and meanwhile in California I rode in the covered arena dodging sideways rain today.
    I was just about to wonder if El Nino was ever coming but we're getting soaked now. Hopefully we don't have...

    "I want to ride horses, not wear horses" has been my motto with most of my relatives for the last 20 years... mostly successful.

    I do have an aunt who loves craft fairs and their interpretation of...

    I didn't see any spectacular deals, I didn't make it over to the products/horse care section. There is a giveaway for a $500 gift certificate.

    Went by today on my way to the barn, looked to be well-stocked for now with lots of employees. Lots of customers checking it out.

    First time ever the daughter of a winner wins. Surprised it actually hasn't happened before with all the trainer's kids doing so well!

    So much quotable advice for all riders, regardless of discipline, from George Morris:

    I figure there has to be some benefit of not reaching 5' as an adult... PONIES! Currently ride a Morgan who is small but not quite pony-sized, see many ponies in the future!

    The flyer I got didn't show anything spectacular sale-wise, so without another reason to come I don't know if I would make the trip all the way from where you are. I'll be going by to check...

    In non-commute time you should be fine, but commute traffic is still bad in the East Bay. Checking out the location on Google maps, looks like the size of a CVS. Not bad for a tack store. May do a...

    Grand opening is Friday November 13, specials all weekend. All the stores in the shopping center it's in are fairly large (for example, there's a Homegoods, TJMaxx, etc there) but not ginormous.
  16. SF Bay Area people: Dover opening in Moraga in November

    This is so random - I would have thought they'd first go into the Peninnsula as there are more horses there, but we have no large horse or tack stores to speak of. Opening weekend deals were on a...

    I ride a palomino Morgan named Mr Piggles. He came to the barn with a different name, his (adult, I might add) owner started calling him Pig... and it morphed and became official. It is quite fitting.

    So tempted. But I think it probably won't work for me - short and skinny but curvy. Basically the opposite of the "ideal dressage body" haha. Sigh.

    Suburbs are cities, not neighborhoods. So most of these riders live in cities right outside of larger cities.

    Working well for me on Firefox! I like how this site has the schedule and orders and links to results very accessible.

    I am so sorry, I'm coming of a series of wonderful lessons this weekend on a privately-owned horse that my trainer uses for select lessons and am so grateful for the opportunity to ride him. I think...

    Or, conversely, I don't go to the local tack store because of the service. Wandered in before helmet awareness day to see if they had any of the schooling helmets I wanted, would have paid full price...

    I was also the victim of a too-powerful leg up.

    But the best... Cantering down the long side of the arena. Peacock waddles into corner. Sits down. I continue cantering, assuming the bird will move...

    Need to replace my schooling helmet... I think my Tipperary has warped a bit & I'm ready for a change - unfortunately none of the local tack stores are participating so I'll be buying online. Trying...
