I love this so much! I live in southern Vermont and my parents followed the Dead (in the hitchhiking way) so I was taught from an early age to beware the wealthy-deadhead...
Toy boats (and umbrellas) are the worst!!
Once I was riding my (former) horse near a toy boat and the idea of passing it and cantering at the same time was obviously impossible. He was gone so fast that I landed standing up and wondering what had happened.
Nicole Cliffe you are my hero horse-article-writer! My young horse is going to his first dressage show this weekend and I'm already having nightmares!
