  2. History Of Warmbloods

    Hi.. I haven't been around in various years...probably two or three. I'm sure all the regulars on the board have changed and such..but if anyone remembers me hello again! Anyways, I have been searching around the net, and cannot find when American's began importing warmbloods for dressage and eventing. Does anyone know the approximate time (decade) this began? If you have a link that'd be amazing..I did a big google search but the writing on this is minimal. :/

  5. Need A Laugh? Cccapchat.

    Hi there. Anyone remember me, much less miss me? I'm never around.. SO I have a laugh for you kids. I'm an eventer but I've been showing at hunter shows lately because they're closer and cheaper. My friend (who happens to be a hunter princess) 's brother was helping me load my stuff into the trailer during a big storm. We keep a spare cross country vest in the tack room of the horse trailer, just in case. So I open up the door and he goes, "Why do you have a bullet proof vest?" I died laughing, and then explained that eventers jumps don't fall over. If anyone remembers my red horse, he's doing great, we're going back to be a workingstudent team again at the same place this summer. His dressage is coming along great, we can canter leg yield now and are starting half pass. We're jumping 2'9" at home, and showing 2'6". His lead changes for hunters are still sort of spotty, but its coming. Yesterday, we showed in the pouring rain, and he was great. I butchered our first round, but we got a sixth in the second, and missed a lead in flat, (stupid, I know) but still got a second. And our division had 13 people! I was proud of him. We still have little bucking meltdowns occasionally, but he's growing up! How's everyone been doing?
  6. My Name Doesn't Even Make Sense Any More.

    wanna have a club? I'm an eventer, but the hunter shows around where I live are about a gajillion times cheaper than eventing shows. I'm not blowing all my money on an event show until my greenie is ready. And right now, we're enjoying a year at baby greens, learning how to have a consistent round.
  7. Okay, so everyone loves cleaning their horses sheath's right? Agreed. Story: Last week, Seabastian's sheath was in need to a good cleaning, so I did. A really good, gettem clean for three months kind of deal. I've done it for him his whole life, and he's pretty good about letting me mess with his junk. Anyways, I went out on a trail ride with him yesterday and noticed that smell. Everyone knows what I'm talking about, smegma. When I brought him in to untack him, I inspected his sheath, legs, and he had some smegma on the inside of his thigh. Which is ridiculous, because I cleaned his sheath last week. I considered that maybe I was doing it wrong, although I've done it for years and never had a problem. Anyways, today I coaxed him to drop down (okay, I waited until he needed to pee) and examined his stuff. While his actual ****** is clean, the area around it, the outer layers of the sheath are all smegmaed again. Now, last week, I had them squeaky clean. This has never happened to me before, normally I clean it up and we're good for a while. I've looked around the interweb, and cannot seem to find any reasons for this. Has this ever happened to anyone else? I went ahead and cleaned him up again, but I'm sure its not normal for smegma to gather again that quickly. So I'm turning to the anecdotal stories that hopefully will shed some light. Thanks
  8. Twilight Anyone? (cap Chat)

    I saw this title and thought it said "twitter anyone?" and got excited. to be let down! I've had the dvd pirated copy for a few weeks, haha.
  9. Quick Question About Sheath Cleaning

    extrahannah - when i cleaned him both times I got up in the area behind the ****** as well. He's still squeaky clean today (after the second cleaning). We just switched to summer turnout last week, where they are stalled during the day and out at night, so I was thinking maybe in combination of the freshly cleaned sheath, which is missing the happy bacteria and the sleeping outside at night he got dirty quickly? So hopefully now he's clean and used tot he turnout switch we'll stay clean. I was mostly worried that maybe he had some kind of imbalance or something I'd never heard of.
  10. The Sweet Itch

    Hey guys. So way down yonder (Alabama) is already warming up. It's 70 already today. Seabastian gets really bad sweet itch in the spring/summer/fall. (Chestnut horses right? =/) Anyways, I'm about to go restock my supply of sweet itch fighting medications. If I apply everything, everyday, I can keep him from looking pathetic. Normally I use Equus Summer Defense Spray (the stuff that smells good, like marigolds) and then Muckitch Spray on his mane, tail, belly and sheath. I used to have some stuff that was thicker than the Muckitch, but my mom threw away the bottle and I don't remember what it was called. It was a blue lotion, anyone know what I'm talking about? Share your sweet itch combat stories, and what works for you. I'd like to find another natural fly spray that is not as expensive as the Marigold one. It needs to be natural though, some of them are hard on his sensitive skin. Thanks! *edit* to say that also, in the summer when he's on the turn out at night rotation, I keep him in his stall until after dusk, and get up early to bring him in before dawn. This seems to help, because the midges aren't in the barn.
  11. The Tell Something That No One Knows About You Post

    I keep a flow of new books coming to my house via amazon and goodreads. Problem: I have three unread new books because Atlas Shrugged is taking me a ridiculous amount of time. Also, I always buy hardcover and sometimes first editions if its financially available
  12. Sigh...do You Ever Turn Down A Dare?

    That's cause he's a boy, its pretty safe! I was scared as all get out, but then it turned out someone else in the car knew them, so it was okay. Wait, why did the soap foam when you put it in the microwave?
  13. Sigh...do You Ever Turn Down A Dare?

    Clearly I need more inventive friends... Once I picked up hitchhikers on a dare.
  14. Empty Stall Syndrome...

    You have a pm!
  15. Where Do You Want To Go To College?

    Birmingham Southern College because like, 95% of the students who graduate get into their choice medical school. (Not all students who graduate, I mean. Students who graduate intending to go to medical school) Its only like seven hours away. Or USA (University of South Alabama) is about twenty minutes from my house, and I would get to keep my horses here so it'd still be free board. I could keep teaching lessons, to an extent. I'll probably do USA for two years, BSC for two and then probably end up at USA medical school. Or I might just do USA for all four.
  16. Hey College Kids!

    This summer when I stayed in an apartment as a working student I ate really badly. Like, lean cuisine for dinner, cheese crackers for lunch, and cereal bars for breakfast. BUT, one time one of the girls who lived but not really with me walked in and was like "I stopped at a grocery stand to buy you food and the only thing that looked edible were these mushrooms, and we can just go out or you can try to cook them." So I put some seasoning (mrs. dash, and basil i *think* and olive oil on them) sliced them up and put them in the fridge. They were really good and then half of them we sauteed and that was really good too.
  17. Opinion On Attending A Dance

    Going with a date is not as fun as it should be. ex-bf and i went to homecoming at his school and I know everyone there, but i had to dance with just him, etc. Going by yourself is fun, and if you really want a date, ask a guy to be your like noncommital date, so you "go" together but you can spilt up later.
  18. Saturday Night Capchat

    I'd like to point out that boyd martin is married to that german rider silva. And I have some opinions about him that are not horsecity appro. But really, do I like any of the top riders?
  19. Saturday Night Capchat

    Man, I always miss when the cool kids are posting on this topic... I've never been skiing, but one time in Switzerland I did a ropes course on the mountain after most of the snow had melted. So my mom has one of those great big exercise balls and while she's at school I steal it and use it for a chair. Except it makes my butt sore. Hahaha.
  20. Saturday Night Capchat

    I just ate an entire pint of ice cream. I'm fairly certain I've already gained the thirty pounds. I know a lot of guy riders, I'm friends with most of the ones in Area 3, but none of them are worth dating. haha, that was mean. Guy riders around here are arrogant because girls are always like OH A GUY and jump on him. Here are least. Even if they're like, ugly and jump ahead of their horses. I don't get it. That audition went splendid except if they give me the lead the insurance will go up for shooting cause I'm a minor. Today Seabastian and I schooled at a local farm, and he was super brave and we even did all the novice jumps. But no pictures. =[
  21. How To Deal With...

    I'm with everyone on ignoring her. And Maddy you know I love you but: Schizophrenic people have voices in their heads telling them what to do, creating an alternate escape universe. Bipolar people have mood swings, and exhibit the behavior you're describing. Sorry, but it bugs me when people get their mental illnesses messed up.
  22. Confessions Of A Teenage Mind

    We broke up. the new one is younger than me, and it weirds me out the other new one is arrogant and it would be the perfect punishment for everything ever Also, I have an audition for a movie tomorrow as the lead role and I've never acted before but I know the casting director and he likes how I look but I don't know how to act. And he sent me the script and I'm auditioning tomorrow and i don't know how to act. and I'm not even trying to learn how. and I don't know how to act. and I'm not even trying to learn the lines, so please can I mess this opportunity up a little more?

  24. The "circle Of Trust"

    My boyfriend of 13 months and I broke up last wednesday. I was upset, and then the first day I woke up without missing him, I texted the boy who has been waiting for six months. I have a date this weekend.
