    Robert Mendoza is superb, I highly recommend him. The only other trainer we've ridden with on that list above is Susan Harris, who is also excellent. Nad left a pretty big hole to fill.

    Honestly what has helped me is to simply shorten my stirrups a hole. Or try two. It seems to greatly improve my base of support and since I'm not "reaching" for the stirrup iron I'm able to stay...

    That's the great thing about helmet cams, they're part of the historical record, preserving the legacies of these now extinct shows.

    Yes, one has to be pretty well snockered to have an ETT in place without struggling, or have an adequate upper airway local anesthetic block. Seems like they bled off a lot of the "golden hour" in...
