Re: Sidesaddle

My late sister, who studied at Meredith Manor in West Virginia, rode both astride and sidesaddle. She did dressage and hunter-jumper in both seats. She told me once that riding sidesaddle correctly is as secure a seat as riding astride, especially with the development of the leaping horn. She also t...

Re: Book on swords and sabers?

Dusan, Thanks for touching base with me. I had almost forgotten about all this, but was reminded when I had a few things out for cleaning. I couldn't find the emails we exchanged, and could not recall the details. I certainly look forward to the publication. If you or your publisher need any further...

Book on swords and sabers?

A few years ago we had a thread on US sidearms (it's still around in the archive section). I posted a photo of a saber I have, and some information about it. A little while later, I was contacted by a Society member about that piece. I can't remember who it was, and I can no longer find the emails w...

I'd agree that the stirrups are a bit short. Neither he nor the horse look comfortable.

Midway movie

I went to see "Midway" the other day, and was impressed with the detail of the CGI. I was also somewhat disappointed by the almost overwhelming reliance on CGI and the CGI colors seemed muted. Overall, though, I thought it was a bit over-acted. I expect the difficulty of trying to act in f...

Re: Don't be shy. . . post

I'm guilty of spending too much time perusing social media. There are about 4 good sites/forums that I visit on an almost daily basis, including this one. The assembled faculty here is an astonishing library of knowledge, and it's a pleasure to be associated with it. Now, if we could just get some S...

The Perfect Horse

I just finished reading, and thoroughly enjoying Elizabeth Letts' "The Perfect Horse: The Daring U.S. Mission to Rescue the Priceless Stallions Kidnapped by the Nazis.

Have any of y'all read this one? I'd like to know what you think of it.

Re: Interesting CW Photos from the Library of Congress

I've been looking through the LoC website, and I can't locate this image. Is there some additional identifier that I'm missing?

Re: They Shall Not Grow Old

I was lucky enough to see this recently, and it's one of the most powerful films I've seen. Now, apparently they missed a cut-off date for something or other, so it's not eligible for an Academy Award for 2018, but because it was released in 2018, it can't be considered for 2019, either. If ever a d...
