    I think you scored so high because you remembered to show off your "boozies" and sit on your "poozie". Oh wait, that really only works in hunter eq. Sorry, me bad.

    I've found a whole new way of riding that's gonna smash RollKur in the dirt: The ultimate inside hand crossed over the withers to the outside. You know, so you can get the big stupid SOB horse to turn? I'm telling you, that's going to completely revolutionize dressage. Between that and practicing my freestyles via boombox-tied-to-pommel like a flask case and I've been pratcicing in a basketball court for it's unbelievable acoustics...who's gonna be able to touch this? Anky, step aside I say.

    Thinking oabout blinging my dress boots into a flip flop pattern too, you know, so the judges take note? Yeah, rock on my friends!

    Why not just bling out the flip flops and ride in them? Who really needs boots? I always thought they were just another classist fad.

    A Cork Horse - does that mean if you get caught in a heavy rain, your horse just floats along on top of the water?

    You could be right on the cutting edge with vocals - and maybe you could project the video simultaneously on huge video screens at either end of the arena during your ride.

    (Can you believe that this video was a huge hit in Europe? At least, that's what I was told...)

    Big rip. You only got those scores because your trainer warmed your horse up for you. Then rode in the warm up ring with a big (okay, medium) woody on so as to distract the judge from your hellacious ride. Oh and another thing? I hear your horse freebases peeps.

    Top that, mon cher

    That, and Snoop's Gin and Juice, and I think you're set. Of course, you could hire at least 8 chippendales in leopardprint thongs doing the oooga ooga oooooga cha cha or whatevertheheckitis (one at each letter on the perimiter of the arena). Heck Yes!!!

    To Banbury Cross

    Ahh, Geek, you missed me at the show... you know, I had the Big Lick TWH (rescued from the slaughter truck) in the Intro A musical freestyle. He went really well because I had him in a tack noseband (the kind with bling on the inside) and a sidepull bridle. One of our special moves was the one-rein stop I did for my final halt. I borrowed the "Pomp and Circumstance" music from the Germans at the WEG because I thought it was so, um, lyrical. Yeah, lyrical.

    Ahh, slc2, I've learned so quickly that I can always count on you.

    My point, along with Geek, is that if you just mention one of the topics included in our posts, you can get the trainwreckers instantly rolling. What's sad is that it has to be actually pointed out to some on this board for them to understand (or not...).

    We all need to be able to laugh at ourselves and our prejudices. It certainly keeps me from taking myself too seriously.
