I agree. I've only fallen off a few times, and luckily I haven't hurt anything, but it was rather fun (after I got over the shock). I love how as your falling the world seems to slow to a crawl.
I didn't get to compete, seeing as I've never been able to stay at a stable for long. The first one the woman was nice, but I didn't learn anything. The second one was amazing, but they shut down. and the third was was perfect, but I haven't been able to go due to school and my mom not being able to drive me.
Really? D: That's crazy! I say you contact Canada's transshipper and ask him how much his transhipping fees are for ___ ammount of bettas. his fees and the quality fish might add up to be only a bit more than a typical LFS betta in your area.
I am soooo envious of you... I haven't been horseback riding in about half a year or so :( I miss the riding stables.
Don't worry, I don't mind ^-^. I got him all together for about 54 dollars. 10 dollars plus the 5$ cost of exporting/importing to the breeder, and 39 dollars to the transshipper for shipping and handling. :P He was a bit on the expensive side, but IMO well worth it. Pricing might vary a bit for you, since you'll have a different transshipper, but I wouldn't imagine that it'd be that different.
