    I'm on it! And what about the "bitless dressage" debate...though those people may be WTD prospects...it's an irritating thread, nonetheless.

    True story:

    Our barn goes to a show this weekend. Coats are waived due to heat. Judge writes on one of the teen's tests "Annoyed by flopping body parts." Note to self-always wear a coar to hold in flopping body parts.

    At the same show, friend scratched due to injury to her horse. Informed show management. While holding a horse for someone, she hears her name as next to go. She says, "WTF?" Goes to show office and discovers they scratched someone else with the same last name.

    Such things never happen in WTD.. Flopping body parts are encouraged.

    Uh, would these be flopping body parts only while riding or body parts that flop when walking...or laughing...or even (shh!!) body parts that keep moving a second after the rest of you stops moving

    No flopping body parts when you wrap your body in vet wrap. Or duct tape.

    Well, the judge was not detailed in her description of said body parts. One can only assume. (It should be mentioned this rider is not fat.)

    Interesting, but understandable. I have body parts that flop - head, hands, legs. All of these things should not flop but do. (Shrug) Hey, someday I may learn to ride better. Or maybe not. Meanwhile, I flop, and slip and twist. All kinds of fun stuff probably better suited to the Disco Era than riding.

    Which is why one should always wear a coat-coats hold in all flopping body parts.

    I am going to a show this afternoon - schooling type deal. I am riding two eventing tests. I am thinking of wearing half chaps and a tipperary helmet (assuming rummaging around in my tack truck I can locate an old one). It is freaking pouring here and I just can't bear the thought of exposing expensive helmet, wool jacket and leather boots to the elements.

    If only I could use my cotton hackamore bridle and do the damn test bareback! Or. Maybe I could just stay home.

    Anyway, if I go, I will be flopping. It's too wet for wool, no matter how you cut it.

    RR - hope this is in time before you go - isn't duct tape waterproof?

    Good luck. I am rooting for you to take Year End Awards in the Tuesday Series. And if not, I will buy you your own ribbon that will be FAR nicer than anything anyone else got. We can pour over the Hodge's website and decide.

    When wet, duct tape will probably still stick to it's self, but it falls off of almost everything else... I am experienced in these matters Not so good for patching up anything when it's raining. It'll still stick to metal though... so if you need to patch a hole in your ancient metal canoe to get groceries in this weather it just might work!

    I think it has stopped raining here...yay!!!

    That is why RR needs to get dressed in the car or tack room, and then go out in the rain. Sheesh. You are an amateur when it comes to duct tape, I tell ya!

    It'll still fall off after a little while in the rain, trust me

    Yes, but then she can score big points for WTD eventing.

    The rain missed us! With 7pm ride times, I zoomed in, did my tests in record time (which for the record is actually not a good thing ) and zoomed home just as the skies reopened. OMGiH, the rain is amazing. The Delaware river is looking vvveerrrryyyy scary right about now. Luckily, I live on a ridge.

    Pony did about as expected. She scored in the mid-30s for both the Beginner Novice tests. Well, actually, I made an error in the first test, so technically, WE scored in the high-30s. But since the error was not the Pony's fault, I stand by the original statement that SHE scored in the mid-30s.

    Thank you for all of your suggestions. I should have brought a chicken with me and duct taped it to the saddle. A few WTD points and I would have scored in the LOW-30s!

    I really like the idea of duct taping the chicken to the saddle - front or back? Or both? How about a small one with nice plumage attatche dto the browband instead of a fly net?

    I assume you are creaming the young children to beat them out for YE awards in the Tuesday series...right?

    Duct-taped a chicken to the saddle? What have I missed? Sounds like a very good way to motivate Bea to pick 'em up and put 'em down. Rapidly.

    Next time you have to show in rainy weather, take a tip from Red Rocks Park concert-goers. The black plastic trash bag with a slit cut out for your face & hands would be appropriate. And black is so correct and formal...

    And a smaller trash bag for the chicken.

    Beasmom-do you want to know something frightening? I suggested the trash bag look on the thread in Off Course, without ANY idea you made the same suggestion. OMG. WTD minds think alike. I even suggested one for the chicken.

    Be afraid -- be very afraid! I had no idea we were sharing the same brain. Or the same suggestions on parallel threads!!
