    Default Vanity Fair reads the Dressage Handbook

    Don't get all bent out of shape, they just quote some passages with silly and snide VF comments, all due to Rafalca, I'm sure.

    I've always wished that USEF would replace those drawings of "sad" horses.... They really do look kind of miserable/worried.
    You have to have experiences to gain experience.

    An article 'written' by a woman with the name Juli. Come on, is that even a real name? Anyhow it's a shame Evgenia Peretz is a Vanity Fair contributing editor and who is she a cousin of? Notable dressage owner Jane Forbes Clark II.

    I hope that doesn't mean I'm supposed to know about (and/or respect) the hobbies/careers of my cousins. Because I have one that's a show choir instructor....

    I think it would be fun to try to write a romance story with only phrases from the USEF rulebook. Maybe all disciplines, though.
