    I personally would be interested to see the science behind the decision.

    Well that's a shame ... I went to the fall HT the last two years and really enjoyed it. It seemed like an 'up and coming' event that was putting an effort into improving courses and such.

    This is an interesting conversation. I haven't known very many horses with lymphangitis, and none of them were my own so I don't know all the specifics about treatment, recurrence, etc ... But all...

    It seems like everyone is in agreement that doing too much strenuous or stressful work can be harmful to a young horse. And I'll admit, I've always been leery of futurity-type competitions,...

    I wonder if other sports have people who presume they know better than the current best in their sport just because they read some books that were written a long time ago.

    I just can't imagine being turned on by anything that was originally intended to be Twilight fanfic.

    I'm far from a prude when it comes to things like sex and porn, and I'll admit that I haven't...

    This is the saddle I have, and I really like it. The flat isn't "extreme" forward but is a lot more forward than my older style saddle I used to ride in. I'm 5'5" and ride in a 17" ... I don't have...

    Also, those that have said polo wraps are a bad idea for XC are 100% correct. They sag when they get wet, and you can end in a dangerous situation really quickly.

    Nope, five point breastplates aren't necessary. Some people seem to like them, others seem to like to use them because it's the current fashion. I've never used one, personally, because I couldn't...

    When I graduated it took me about a month after graduation to find a job. I am also on the opposite side on the country, and in a much smaller town, so I'm sure that does make a difference. My...
