    I don't consider sunscreen or chapstick (which has SPF) to be "makeup." I put those on any time I leave the house for anything. Putting those on to to participate in an outdoor sport--riding!--just...

    JER, it sounds closer to bocce/petanque than actual bowling. I have no idea why anyone is unsuitable for that, especially once one has had a few drinks. Balls and drinks sounds right up most of our...

    I think most of the people I see at the barn with makeup on are wearing it because they came from somewhere like work or school. If I'm stopping at the barn on the way to/from somewhere I would wear...

    I'm just going to use it as my excuse if anyone ever invites me bowling. "No, sorry, the BBC said I should avoid it."

    My results were long- and mid-distance swimming, and judo. I actually love...

    I think I've read all her books. She's very sharp, and very funny.

    Also ditto the Margaret Atwood recommendation. If you like oddly dystopian, check out her Oryx and Crake trilogy.

    Hey now, my yucca with Christmas lights and shell ornaments resents your implications! It likes looking festive all year round. (Also, have you tried removing lights from a yucca? PITA.)

    There's...

    I'm one that dislikes it. It just seems whiny and uninteresting to me. I also dislike a lot of the Big Russian Novels; the only one I've ever managed to finish was "Anna Karenina."

    I do love...

    I used Piedmont when my horse was boarded out that way, and was very happy with them. They've got a very nice clinic setup if you do ever need anything specific, like a lameness workup or minor...

    Well, there's the thing. Event folks cross train naturally, it's built into the sport. I think everyone at my barn who identifies as an Eventer (myself included) goes to a mix of Events and the at...

    I'm not a huge whisky drinker, but the SO is. If these guys actually sponsor an Eventer, I will certainly buy him a pair of them come the holidays!

    Just the fact that they responded at all makes...

    Like west5 and jen-s, I'm much more naturally out of the tack; that may be my hunter background coming through. I remember once being (jokingly!) threatened with a strip of tacks on the seat of my...

    Most of my jackets are RJ Classics--their Longs are actually long enough for my giant man shoulders and monkey arms. I do have one Grand Prix that is quite nice as well. They're all the older,...

    There's stuff every weekend down in MD, too! I had several schooling shows and some Twilight Eventing on my radar, but sadly I won't be riding in any of it for a while since I took a silly spill this...

    The actual store in Manhattan is amazing! I could wander in there for hours. But beware that if you're buying really good fabric, its not that much less expensive than an average hunt coat--good...

    Mood will send swatches. I've ordered quite a bit from fabric.com very happily, but their selections tend to be quite seasonal.

    I have a pair of the firmer Davis type velcro bell boots, but only use them for shipping. IME with them and other velcro bell boots, they end up rubbing where the two sides come together.

    I'm trying to figure out what one piece would break, other than the crown, maybe, that would cause the entire thing to come off like that. I mean, I can see one strap somewhere breaking under...

    I have a black coat for dressage. Around here, most HTs are 1 days, and you go directly from SJ to XC, so I jump in XC attire for both, with the same black helmet.

    I've got colored coats for when...

    I have one of these, as well as a few other brands of technical fabric polos; you can't beat these for the price. They seem to wash and wear well, and are nice enough for a schooling jumper class or...

    There have only been two people I've had less than pleasant "learning" experiences with. One I was much younger, and sort of stuck with, and it nearly led me to quit riding. The other was when I...

    I've only ever seen Red Cell used on race horses, or on rescue/rehab cases (a friend's new rescue horse is on it now). It has its uses, just like something like PerfectPrep can have it's use--on a...

    Those were my first thoughts, too. Shorten your stirrups a hole, give a little more release, soften your arms to let go of his face, and send him forward. Forward doesn't have to mean "fast" it just...
