    Agree. I used to say there were two divisions I didn't want to be anywhere near the warmup for: JBN, because there was always a naughty pony or a kid who couldn't steer, and Preliminary Rider,...

    Tempichange is the organizer of a series of these clinics which she promotes heavily and for profit. As you'll recall from other threads, she historically has refused to post the price (though it is...

    Most of the main things have been said. Bear in mind that this horse doesn't need to flex 100% too (and likely won't) - you're looking for serviceable sound or sound with not unreasonable...

    Invested - come over and hang with DH! He uses our grill for dinner at least three times a week and would be happy to talk you through it. Super easy, and so nice not to heat up the kitchen with the...

    I'd treat it like a laidback shower. You'll never go wrong by bringing a cute onesie or baby swaddle (they make lots of adorable ones in gender-neutral colors with animals on them). You could also...

    Such big, big hugs to you and DH and your crew out there. We miss you out east, particularly at times like these when we'd all want to descend on y'all with hugs and bottles of wine.
