    Everytime I get to watch the Masters at Spruce Meadows I wonder about the difference in European vs. North American jumping. Those American women scare the bejeezus out of me every time they ride...

    I didn't mean to offend you or any other reasonable person on the board with my comments about barrel racing. I used to do all the fun stuff with my pony club mounts when I was younger and I'd love...

    Can't help it... one more picture

    This is my next horse, an OTTB who was an excellent horse and I wish I appreciated him more when I had him. Probably '84? maybe?

    These pictures are great! Good idea!

    Here's me & my first "horse" (after the terrible pony many of us had) at a schooling show maybe '81 or '82. The quality's not so good, but it's still one of my...

    Here's another shot of us, taken today. Opinions?

    Thanks everyone for the comments. And to those who dared voice an opinion on the Anky thread as well, thanks for that also.

    I realise it's very hard to get an acurate idea of a horse & rider pair...

    Well, I must say it's been interesting reading the responses to the picture I posted. I'm not offended by anything anyone has said... I knew I'd get a can of whoop-ass opened on me, and I'm actually...
