    Now that's a good idea- I wonder if they still make the ones that lace in the front and zip in the back. I always thought that was kinda silly, but right now that might be what I need.

    Boots and a broken leg

    Writing to get some opinions here- I broke my leg quite horrifically a little over 7 months ago. My paddock boots did not survive, but somehow the EMT knew to unzip my half chaps, so they are fine. I...

    We are almost x-ray twins, although my tibia came through the skin, and mine was horse related.

    I'm still out from breaking my leg followed by 2 surgeries 7 months ago. For me, it's not the riding as much as 1) I still struggle to walk, so getting tacked up and to the ring is difficult, and 2)...

    The OP states she bought a pair of wraps, so I'm assuming that's two wraps of two different lengths.

    This! I always felt the atmosphere at A shows to be a bit more formal; however, it's been my experience that A shows can be much friendlier than some schooling shows. When we first started going to...

    Been there, done that! I hopped off a horse on December 27 of last year and broke both my tibia and fibula in pretty much the worst way possible. I spent 3 weeks in the hospital and had 2 surgeries....

    Lately I haven't been able to find Dr. Pepper Ten, and I'm very upset! Only 10 calories, but tastes like the original, not diet Dr. P. I know whatever sort of artificial sweeteners were in it are...

    I second the CB jacket. I had an LL Bean one, but it wasn't the same! And I always wanted a needlepoint belt, but I never had the patience to finish one.

    If Charlotte becomes an option, let me know! Tons of cool things to do here. 2 pretty major lakes, but they mostly have McMansions rather than cabins!

    I got up about that early for a really big race several years ago. It was my first 10k, and I felt amazing when I finished! I promised myself I'd do that one again, but I put it off for a...

    I cried watching the commercial, so I think I'll probably skip it. Cool fact, though- it was filmed about 15 minutes from where I live.

    I can speak to the fit of your pony, but my Amerigo fits my short, stubby legs like a glove (or I guess yoga pants might be a better analogy?). Anyway, I lucked into a custom order with a short flap...

    18 months is until I'm as healed as I'm going to be- thankfully, I can get out and about pretty well now. I can probably ride now, but it would have to be without stirrups, and I'm a little too...

    Good for you for having such a great attitude! Is there any way you can go to another farm just to school in a different ring/different jumps before your next show? That always helped my nerves....
