    A hundred years ago, I happened upon the CoTH forums and was mildly intrigued. I had fun with the numping, finging, aghasted, baby eating, peeps posts. But it was Coreene channeling Willem that made...

    Read all of the above and agree. Perhaps it's because we're eventers?

    To add to the Rio discussion, there was a study released (or at least publicized) earlier this week that showed a higher concentration of bacteria in beach sand then there is in the water (they...

    Seeuatx, feel free to look up Fast Diet online. There's lots of info. But the 500 calories is just that: no matter what I'm doing/ not doing that day, my total intake is 500 calories. The theory...

    I truly believe that different bodies respond to weight loss regimens differently. What works for one may well not work for another, so once any medical issues are ruled out, finding the best fit for...

    Bfne, I quite understand. I use the term (only on CoTH) because it's shorthand for a deep connection with a particular animal and a partnership that would take too many words to describe.

    I've...

    Bfne, I'm surprised you don't believe in "heart horses" if what we mean by "heart horse" is the one that you'll ride even when you feel dog rotten, the one that you'll pick when you have really...

    In any group of people, there's a diversity of perception and opinion based on that perception. This thread has been valuable in allowing posters to articulate different perspectives on what...

    Sevendogs, I understand from whence you're coming, but if an event can get strong patron/ sponsor support (and giving them a special viewing area etc is part of that) then it has more funds to do...

    And JP60, I'll try not to read too much into "Bless your heart". We yankees are a touchy lot, you know :winkgrin:.

    HA, Acme: I once got 120 points for one fall because there were overlapping penalty areas.

    One other thought. It may be harder to get sponsors and giveaways in this era of internet advertising...

    Nonetheless, I am aware that most event organizers are subsidizing their events to make them happen. The one event I know best was subsidized well into 5 figures back in the 1990s. I can't imagine...
