    Is it just me, or do the SRS stallions get older every time they're invoked for discussion?

    Let's take the extreme example of, say, paralysis. A paralyzed child will never grow up to be a professional football player, no matter how much he practices for it. He does not have the ability. He...

    Potentially it's not just about the money-- it's about the fact that if he were to buy a boat, he'd be spending even more time away from his family all by his lonesome. I think cheval convert summed...

    I do believe I hear the clarion call for my opinion (said no other person ever). Too bad, CotH, because I'm already at the keyboard.

    There's no way Dear Old Dad works an 8-5 day. Not for that...

    I'm a little shocked to see that some of the classics aren't even in this list. Come on, COTH. Don't ignore Armageddon and Independence Day. I COULDA BEEN AT A BARBEQUE!

    Ditto katarine.

    I travel about a week a month. I had to ship off my GP gelding to my sister, because it's not fair to ask him to be performing at GP with such an intermittent work schedule. I...

    Not all college degrees pay out the same. Breaking news, I know. But I think some of those studies (e.g. "People with college degrees earn >$1 million more than HS diplomas!") can be misleading and...

    Sadly, coolers are handed out after the awards ceremonies in regional championships. It's not a bad idea to pin a ribbon on your horse's bridle ahead of time. I recommend it, actually, especially if...

    One just showed up at my barn. Friesian/Appaloosa/TB/Dutch (Art Deco). Breeding for color for sure. The woman bought it as a jumper prospect. We'll see.

    I've also seen a couple Friesian/Andalusian...

    For me, it's traveling for work. Which usually means being stuck in meetings for 10 hours (with catered lunch, which usually isn't diet-friendly) followed by "networking dinners" with alcohol....

    I didn't use a reader at last weekend's show, mostly due to pride. I'm an FEI rider, I told myself. I'm showing Training and First levels. How hard can it be?

    Well, I forgot the 15m circle at C...

    Agreed. I found my reliable counter canter came back around 4th/PSG when the flying changes are less... exciting.

    I found that 2nd is to dressage much like trig is to math-- you need to do it in...

    It looks to me like you're pushing with your thighs/seat every stride in the video. I'd like to see you quieter through the hips and lower back to let him push through from behind. A saddle may help...

    Up until (relatively) recently, I was an AA. Trained and showed my gelding from 2nd through GP. And to corroborate meupatdoes' point, in my dressage career I've had maybe 5-10 longe lessons.

    Submission in dressage context doesn't mean complete and total subordination. It's demonstrated by the horse's acceptance of the aids without resistance.

    I don't have a saddlebred, but I do have...

    There might be an ideal world where longeing is a crucial and consistent part of a training regimen, but it's not the world I live in. The world I live in has me too busy to ride at least 2 days a...

    Engineering is stereotyped as chock-full of introverts, and I'm no exception (although I work with plenty). The problem I have is that managers in my company tend towards extroversion, and the...

    My pony can get all Rip van Winkle after a long winter. It's not a pretty sight. So come spring, I take out the clippers and carve out that lower jawline so my pretty little mare no longer looks like...

    I clipped a wine bottle (I free-handed it, so it doubles as a beer bottle) on my GP horse's butt this winter. And then, due to work circumstances, sent him to live with my sister so she can get her...
