    As more people have started doing it for the prizes, and less people buy, the prizes are getting worse... there is almost always a catch. I sat through one in vegas with my stepson and wife, only...

    I used to do it. Lots of good stuff here. Personally, I hope to never have to do it again.... Even nice hotel rooms get old and fancy restaurants get lonely..... I ran through the Louvre in 2...

    It does not mimic riding, but I had the best seat and riding ability of my life when I was a swimmer. Anything that strengthens core and balance is good.

    Yes, you can't really say 50% of colics because all colics are not equal. I participated in a number of successful colic surgeries, but I also saw a lot of DOA horses and horses that were euthanized...

    This is probably the best you can do.
    I have a problem filling out those forms because there are so many more variables in play. If I put a 5K cap on it, what happens if it costs 6K. I would...

    Yes, saying surgery or euthanasia is not the same as saying surgery. What the vet really said was medical is not going to cut it for this horse. Given the length of time the horse had been colicing...

    I had someone put my horse down without my permission. She fractured her cannon bone in a freak pasture accident. The BO had the vet out there right away. The vet assessed the situation and they...

    They'll never do it because they could never legally use the results to sell their product. To do that they would have to go through the whole process including CMC and file with the FDA. Why...

    Have done static and tandem. It was OK, but not enough to keep me interested. Glad I did it, but don't need to again. One of my friends got scared on the static jump. We were supposed to climb...

    a few years back, a family member was caught in the middle of this. One of those lovely recruiters signed her up for the Army. She is Autistic and clearly not capable of an Army career. He didn't...

    I could have written the first part of your post. I actually find dressage hard to ride these days because I can't sit deep like I used to, really hurts my back.

    Why must it be one without the other. If people learn HOW math works, they use it and through repetition, they learn the basics. If they only memorize the tables, they often can not use it to...

    Actually, not in my field. Personally, my education was from a Midwest Ag and Engineering college, hardly Ivy League :). Somehow I survived all the conservative bias of the area ;)
