What is a waterford bit?
A waterford bit is made of rounded segments - it almost looks like a chain (it is not the same thing as a bicycle chain bit, which I'll talk about tomorrow). It's used on horses that try to lean on the bit because it moves too much in the horse's mouth for ...

What is a kineton noseband?
A kineton noseband has metal loops that hook around the bit. Essentially, this adds nose pressure to bit pressure when the rider touches the reins. It's often used by show jumpers and eventers on strong horses, because some people consider it kinder than go...

What is a grazing bit?
A grazing bit is a particular kind of curb bit with bent shanks, often used by cowboys for trail rides - the bent shanks allow the horse to graze during breaks (some people believe horses should never be allowed to graze with a bit). It's actually a bit of ...

What is an Australian cheeker?
It's a rubber strap that runs from the bridle headpiece, down the horse's nose, and then splits to form two rings around the bit. It keeps the bit higher in the horse's mouth and is thought to make it harder for the horse to pull or lean. It's generally see...

Oops
Sometimes we're wrong in science. Sometimes we're very wrong. Scientists trying to sequence two species of lichen discovered they were genetically identical. Both the photosynthetic algae and its fungal symbiote were identical . Snag? One of them was toxic....

    freelance writer, 2009 - present
Story
Introduction
If you want freelance writing work done, go to my website. I do SEO writing, ghost blogging, proof reading and script work. My best subjects are pets and animals, including horses, writing advice, fitness and travel. I will also rewrite your own material and improve the written content on your website. Copy editing and proofreading services are also available. Rates are on my G+ page (Jennifer R. Povey Writer)

If you want to read cool fiction, go to my website. Some of it is even free.

In politics, I consider myself an independent. I am in favor of marriage equality, feel government should stay out of our bedrooms and our doctor's offices, and believe welfare should be a safety net not a fish handout. I do not identify as either a liberal or conservative.

I am British by birth and American by choice.

I ride horses. I occasionally hug trees. I think science is cool and technology can solve our problems.

I read voraciously, but mostly science fiction and fantasy. I role play, but I do not roll play.

I believe in humanity and I believe in the divine. However, I am *not* a Christian. I am a Druid and Asetru, so my theological arguments may seem odd to some of you. I believe in moving forward as a civilization to a new equilibrium with the world and the universe, not backwards to the 'good old days'.

I dislike racism, sexism and homophobia, but I value differing opinions. I dislike arguments but love debates. I place a high value on respectful disagreement but will cheerfully block trolls and assholes. I have strong opinions and I voice them freely.

Note: I post GLBT oriented material regularly (but I do not post pornographic material). Some of the links I post may be to horror fiction, in some cases fairly extreme. Not everything I post would be considered suitable by all parents. You have been warned.

My blocking policy:
Post low quality pornography - blocked.
Post child pornography - blocked and reported.
Make personal attacks against me - blocked.
Direct message me to sell a product unless it is through an opt-in circle - blocked.
Direct message me with material that is racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-Semitic or hateful in any way - blocked and possibly reported depending on how I'm feeling that day.
