    Depending on where you are competing, there may not be a huge difference other than the dressage test and the jog. I've seen courses where the CIC* is very very similar to the Preliminary course,...

    There are new events coming onto the calendar in Area II, so that while it is true that the calendar is crowded, our Area is luckily able to support multiple competitions on the same weekend. The...

    We had similar issues with our new rescue who had some separation anxiety. While we've been working through training, we've put clear plexiglass from Home Depot, cut with utility knife stuck onto...

    OP, glad to hear it. It's been my experience that far too many horses are over fitted up for the lower levels than is really beneficial to them or their riders. Competition ready is a fairly...

    Confess it's not my first choice, but I've had one that needed bar shoes at times and competed with them up to Preliminary. Downside is that it seemed a lot easier for him to pull shoes and so we...

    It's such a range, indeed! My full TB was long format 3-day fit (and near enough to popping out of his skin) doing 3x5s; my Advanced horse (3/4 TB) was doing no more than 3x6 and hill work when he...

    Yes, people want to touch your bump - it's weird, and icky and Not OK. I've been intervening with a quick grab of their wrist and, while holding it FIRMLY and away from me, look them in the eye and...

    For BN/N? And the horse has been turned out in a decent sized paddock? I tend to bring horses back slowly and conservatively and I'd still think you're more than generous in the amount of time. ...

    And yet...I still wish both she and her dog had looked a little better. I grew up with pulik and really love the breed - a well turned out one that near enough bounces-and-grins as it moves is...

    Good points above. Localized swelling along the tendon sheath makes me nervous about a suspensory; a small swelling that is toward the splint bone and is fairly hard makes me think split; overall...

    Agree on the Deerhound. She was so pretty but we thought she looked off as well. I was also disappointed to see the Puli - usually they are one of my favorite dogs but this one didn't seem to have...

    Also, depending on where in DC you are, you may be looking at the same commute time to VA. Particularly if you're close to Chain Bridge, you might find it easier to cut across and pick up 123 to the...

    For those who are still riding, recommendations on good breeches? I've found I can still (at 22 weeks) squish into my Pipers, but they're not ideal. Kerrits? Ovation? Other thoughts? Sadly, my...

    Hah! Me too in elementary school:

    Listen my children, and you shall hear,
    Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere.
    'Twas the 18th of April in '75,
    Hardly a man, is still alive,
    Who remembers...

    BMI has always been a flawed standard - it doesn't account for muscle versus fat, it doesn't account for gender-based differences in mass, and it becomes increasingly inaccurate as height increases. ...

    Not a fan of suggesting rules just to fix the one outlier. So you've got this person who seems like kind-of-an-idiot and who isn't listening to others. There are better ways to handle the situation...

    Jon Holling is terrific; Karen & David O'Connor are in Ocala for large chunks of the winter; I believe Leslie Law is down there as well.

    Wow - that's a big (and disappointing) change for Hallmark. We used them extensively for years, but that level of co-insurance on diagnostics makes them pretty unattractive.

    What's the line from Kushner's Angels in America?

    Mangling the quote slightly, but essentially, it was that the person "who wrote the national anthem knew what he was doing. He set the word...

    Crotch-crunch. ;)

    Seriously, I think it's less of an issue than how you feel in it and how your horse goes in. I really really really hate being in a saddle that's too small - I feel trapped and...

    Hard to go wrong with KennedyCenter tix. Woolly Mammoth and Studio also both usually have good, not stupidly expensive theater options. Could pair the new play at Woolly with dinner at Jaleo or...
