    I agree with them. It is not behavior that promotes a happy and stable...

    Pleasure/trail NOW, back in my fire-eater days eventing, dressage & hunters. Did a couple turns on a reiner, too when someone gave me one; got into the gaited guys more recently the same way.

    This is concerning, since I own one of these I have barely used. Do you think the quality issues are serious enough that I ought to sell mine NOW, while I still can?

    Reality Check, #2:

    There are people in the supermarket line and in traffic, ahead of you and behind you, ON DRUGS. Sometimes VERY BAD things . . . including booze.

    THIS! I am constantly amazed at the pearl-clutching that goes on on the likes of NPR about "inhumane" executions, considering the heinous, horrific nature of the murders committed by the condemned. ...

    I've got at least 3 boarders with a tendency to "sprawl." Some people start taking up too much floor space, hogging multiple saddle racks, or leaving piles of really dirty skeevy saddle pads around....

    Evaluate what your friend said and see if any of it is true--and whether only superficially, or on a deeper, more fundamental level. Many of us have patterns of gravitating to certain situations or...
