I dunno if your english or american though so ill put english AND american sign language sites. BSL(british sign language)=www.britishsignlanguage.com. ASL= www.aslpro.com. If you live in london yh the library in whitechapel teaches BSL for not mch! 🙂 if u need any more sites just contact me somehow lol.
I signed up for Eng. Riding and was told to buy boots… But I'm stuck.
I've done research and have found that ppl tend to buy Paddocks and half-chaps as beginners. Apparently Tall Boots are hard to get your heel down in and don't provide enough grip as half-chaps? I really had my eye set on these Auken II Riding Boot @ Greenhawk in Toronto, but are these considered show boots? (Link is below) They're on sale and actually cost less than the Paddocks.
Ugh, I'd appreciate your help! Sorry for being a Newbie.
For beginners, whether kids or adults, ALWAYS go for short/paddock/jodphur boots and half chaps.
It is best to keep things cheaper at the beginning, especially children who will probably grow out of things before they have seen their day.
Long boots should never be worn by beginners who have no control of their lower legs. They have minimal give in them and make 'heels down' so much harder as your heel will just naturally want to com up.
Rubber riding boots for me are a huge 'no-no', not only do i find they look incredibly tacky, they are often very ill, with the calf being to wide or the height being to tall or short. They are also not the most comfortable things as they have absolutely no give or support in the ankle and tend to create a huge bulk. To me, they are just awful…
It would be far better for you to get a pair of cheap, but decent riding boots and half chaps. You don't have to spend an absolute fortune for now until you are positive that you wish to continue riding.
My friend's girlfriend just had jaw surgery so her mouth is wired shut for 6 weeks. I thought it would be fun to get them a sign language book to learn together. Any suggestions? Nothing too expensive.
ASL for Dummies (about $12-$15) is a good book to start with learning sign language a bit more seriously. There is also, American Sign Language Concise Dictionary (about $8), for learning certain signs (I have this one, and I also have a text book which is a bit expensive). You can always go the the library and borrow books on it – like mentioned above – to see if it is what you want – so, you can decide which you want to as your own. Or just borrow it from the Library and save your money. Then there's online like:
Lots more online that can help you. Amazon has a lot of selection you can choose from from inexpensive and up.

Nothing gets people more scared and jittery than a good grip change. Some of them have never really played, yet they act as if they have been holding the club like they …
