    I feel deprived. I never had any tack-- noseband or otherwise-- with my initials stitched into the leather. However, it does sound like a trend that needs to be resurrected!

    Count me in the group that once wore a powder blue huntcoat and the madras plaid.

    The photos are all lovely! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/yes.gif

    You are correct
    I'm not sure if it's a step up from the helmet covers.. or just a step sideways http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    I had a stamp with initials (my Mother's) that you heated up and branded the leather. That was how we embroidered or monogrammed our tack.

    Merry, You gotta watch where you put those "---"'s

    I thought you were committing perjury by saying:

    "I feel deprived. I never had any tack noseband..."

    When we ALL KNOW that your torture tack trunk is RIFE, I say RIFE! with tack nosebands, rowel spurs, whips with stickers on the end and cut glass shin boots. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif

    (Please, innocent and gullible folks, in case you cannot tell, I am joshin' Merry. .... Yeah... right... http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_razz.gif )

    To those other posters who have said such nice thangs..... Gee, golly shucks. Youse gonna git my haid all swolled up.

    I have 40+ pictures that I really like... And that is an edited list. So I think that, on a rainy day, I may make a Webshots album and call it good. In the meantime, I will cede the floor to Merry, Chanda, and all the others who have years of showing and drawers full of pictures sitting there, ready to make you all say WOW.

    I will post two more that are special to me WHEN I can make my stand alone computer figure out how to log in to COTH from that computer. Can anyone help me? Erin is out of suggestions -- My problem is that I am logged out, and when I try to log in, I cannot get to the log in page. I am recycled back to the page I am already on. I have tried to re-register, but it tells me that I am already registered.

    I have made sure that cookies are allowed and I don't know what else to do. If I cannot log in, I cannot post on that computer and that is where the rest of my pictures are.

    I will also repost the Madison Square Garden picture because it tickles me to think that I might be someone else's wallpaper. I am not even my own wallpaper, so have at it.

    Please feel free to PT me if you have any suggestions. I need a techno-nerd. Anyone out there qualify?

    I'm certainly no techo-nerd, but can't you copy the pictures to disk (floppy) and put them on another computer?

    or email them to yourself and download them on another computer?

    Hello, I bumped into xegeba who it turns out told a complete lie. I'm afraid I'm not a techno-nerd. Then again I'm always willing to talk about things I really know nothing about so here goes.

    Sounds like MAD might have solved the problem with his/her good idea.

    You can't re-register for COTH using the same e-mail you used for the initial profile. Do you have a second e-mail address you could use for the second registration?

    I would think you can't log in on two computers at the same time using the same profile. Are you logged out on the first computer before you try to use the second?

    I'm only on photo at age six so far. And loving it! What a great idea!

    Im pretty certain a few years ago Dover offered a "Hunter" bridle that you could have your initials put in stitching on the noseband. Looked a lot smaller than the one LH showed though. I wanted one so bad.
    WAsnt too long ago...10 years maybe?

    Great pictures guys!

    So you say. And how do you know? http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...s/winkgrin.gif

    ------------------

    Yes, MAD does have a good idea which I have been using for other pictures. But I live in the country. With a dial up. A slow dial up. It can take minutes to upload a picture from one computer , more minutes to download it on the other, and another several minutes to upload it to COTH. To say nothing of signing on and off AOL on first one and then the other computer. All in all, it is a real PITA that takes all evening.

    So, while I figure out this conundrum, lets play:

    "Guess who this is?"

    I will give you a hint.

    1. The rider is older than dirt.

    The only decent photos I have are all boring equitation stuff. Or win shots where I look like a deer staring into headlights. So you just go ahead and post away with your photos, Lord Helpus.

    And just for the record, Missy, those are PLASTIC chips in my horse's shin boots, not GLASS chips. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_razz.gif

    LH - Two things. Try clearing your cache. WIth IE go to your tool bar on top and click on tools. Then go to internet options. From this you'll see general, click there. Then temp files, delete them. Don't delete the cookies, just the temps in this file.

    ALSO I'd suggest going into your user profile in COTH DO THIS FIRST. There is a place to check or un check "remember this user profile" uncheck it. This should make it easier to log on from another computer.

    My 2 cents for what its worth, bring on the Garden pics!

    Okay, can someone help me with some of these abbreviations? I understand a GPA is a Grand Prix .... ??? <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>mbdobbs, a GPA is a brand of approved helmet - one of the helmets with the vent "stripe" on the front, also known as a "skunk helmet." As of yet, I don't think anyone knows what the initials stand for. I've seen several threads about it, but no answers!

    Pam, It's Nicole Bloom. I STILL have those nosebands with the Names/initials stiched in them. I prize them greatly, it's hard to get TRUE Jimmy's custom tack anymore.

    Great to see all the pics!

    Awesome thread! LH, that pic of you on the gray looks like a photo out of GM's Hunter Seat Equitation. Lovely! And George is so gorgeous. If you ever make it to the GA Int'l Horse Park, let me know. I want to pet your horsie.
