    Oh good idea. I don't trust drivers around here enough even if I painted Lizzy with reflective paint. Teenagers and their darn phone, texting away. The US is definitely way to leinent on giving out drivers licenses.

    There are only a few roads with traffic in our forest that lead to some nearby villages, but the drivers are sometimes careless, old men who don't give too much of a thought that racing those narrow, dark roads might be a bad idea.

    I am going to order gear from Kraemer (a German tack shop), although I like the quality of Horze gear better. But Horze shipping costs are sky high if you don't cooperate with other buyers. And all the people that are pooling together for a shipment, are buying their stuff in Kraemer.

    I will also order a winter riding coat, winter PVC boots and thermal riding boots for myself. And maybe an oilskin hat, if I have enough funds. :)

    I don't know that I've ever seen an oilskin hat. I used to have an oilskin duster, but left it for dad when I moved up here and had no need for it. I am, however, in need of a new hat. Had a nice black felt one, and a white straw one. Gave the straw one away, and the black on got sat on, never could get it back to shape.

    Or just plain ol' can't drive, jeesh. We really need harsher penalties for people who drive recklessly or drive without a license. When the lady rearended me going over 50mph she didn't even get a ticket. She was eating while driving and not paying attention and she was over 50 years old too!

    Just thought how interesting it would be to meet you all for a trail ride and camping, and maybe do some fun horseback games or a little XC jumping. :)

    Oh that would be fun. Mix in the different cultures and ways of doing things. It would be an awesome learning experience. Although there might have to be some borrowing of horses, as I'm pretty sure it costs a pretty penny to ship horses overseas lol.

    Well, if we had the money required, it would also be tons of fun to see each others horses in real life and go awwww over how wonderful they all are! :)

    Hehe yes of course. I would like a Snickers clone. Mostly so in the winter I have a giant fluffy teddy bear haha. He is one of the few I think look even cuter in the winter fuzzies.

    I totally agree with you on this, i'm 22 and still don't have my license....and I hate to drive, i'm surrounded my crazy drivers, and many should not have their licenses at all!!! I don't think 16yo should get their licenses either, esp with all the new technology out that they can txt n what not while driving, and half of them probably don't even know half of their actual road skills or rules anymore. With cars that can parallel park themselves, whats the point of learning that skill any more then.....
