    I'm not sure why you are so outraged, Jim. The kidnapping in Africa goes far beyond social media, or forum posts. To have it resolved, governments need to be involved, and military actions taken...

    Yeap.

    And I kept coming back to the claim that he did not see the collar. OK. Let's assume that he was being truthful in that account, despite the collar being really obtrusive. So what he was...

    You don't see the difference between kill to survive, and kill for pleasure?

    Hunting in general does not bother me, especially if the hunting is for food and involves some basic skills.

    But this particular incident really galls me. I've been thinking why. And I think it is...

    Isn't it nice that trophy hunters can decimate the conservation, turn around to claim the opposite, and folks believe them?

    A little tidbit. When I went to the safari, we were mostly in PRIVATE...

    I don't buy that Palmer is "that" ignorant. This dude had been hunting for years, and is a self-claimed "nationally and internationally award-winning archer."

    He knew that each pride had its...

    Want to talk about economy? Conservation works because of the flourishing tourism, tourism not involving killings, but watching.

    It is false economy, and extremely short-sighted to say that the...

    Posting without stirrup has a real danger of teaching you to grip with your knees - exactly what you don't want in dressage. So unless you are in a lunge line lesson with a good dressage instructor,...

    Perhaps you should ride in paddock books for a short while until your dressage seat is more developed? It does take time to develop that long dressage legs. Don't compromise your security. Oh also,...

    I was about to recommend Uvex Perfexxion Active, but I think its price is outside of your limit. Unfortunately this is the only one I found that fit my very round head that is also well ventilated...

    I cannot believe you manage to make me laugh at this maddening thread. :lol:

    The key is, canter straight line till he teeters on the verge of out of balance, but not totally out, before you bring him back to circles again. You don't want to keep him in the comfort zone, ie,...

    Bauhaus, thank you. That is a very sad quote from Mortebella. Unfortunately I know exactly what Friedrich Nietzsche felt. You feel your heart being ripped out. I believe based on some posts that I'm...

    Myler started with targeting western folks, I think? I have one with sweet iron mouth piece, and I love it. These days it seems I have to specifically hunt for the sweet iron mouthpiece because most...

    This is where dressage gets really irritatingly confusing, when dressage folks say the horse must bend to be straight, lol. Think about this: the horse' shoulders are narrower than the hips, their...

    That is not really true. Myler sells bits with sweet iron mouthpiece, but it is just one of the models. Most of my Mylers are stainless mouth piece with copper inlay.

    There is a reason why dressage folks ride so many circles, from 20 meter to 18, 15, 12, endless circles. And it is not because circles are so much fun;) Be patient. All you are describing are normal...

    Why not? If I did not have more horses than I cared to admit, I'd jump at the opportunity to own a 20 something year old upper level dressage horse. Other than the points other posters have made,...

    I have not changed anything.

    I toast to the horse. I did not toast to her death.

    If the action of the horse resulted in the death of the person, it is none of my concerns. I still toast to the...

    A well-meaning bad rider has sympathy for their horse. This woman enjoys whipping the horse. See the video. I can't believe you even put them in the same category. So yes, it is poetic justice this...
