To bully is to intimidate through blustering, domineering, or threatening behavior: workers who were bullied into accepting a poor contract.
I'm still fairly new to this eventing game, so I never expected my homebred to qualify for the NRF, which she did yesterday. By=date I am assuming that your rider has ridden to Intermidate or higher, so would be able to do the event that is linked above. I'm still coming to terms that a 1/2 welsh, pony type can manage to qualify! I was just worried that the qualification might not go through to next year.
looking at BE there are a lot of NRF dates for Gatecombe 2015. Possiable that rider does not think your horse would be ready for the NRF this soon, it is Intermidate dressage and possiably 5cm bigger SJ. Personally if the rider is uncertain I would not bother trying as if qualified for the final your horse will need to have completed an intermediate before Aug.
My rider is very experienced, produced and ridden to 3*, so I imagine that she thinks next year will be better.
Learning to be intimidating can also help you avoid being intimidated by others.
COW implies reduction to a state where the spirit is broken or all courage is lost not at all cowed by the odds against making it in show business .
The assumption you must eat at least three meals a day just might be misguided.
If you dislike eating breakfast and rarely find time for lunch at work, a one-meal policy makes outward sense - after all you still get to eat heartily late in the day, reducing three or more time-wasting rituals to a feast with possible weight-loss benefits.
These days, everyone is all about intermittent fasting.
The talk centralizes around the physiological and psychological benefits of skipping meals, like not having to carry around twelve Tupperware containers filled with six meals to last an eight hour shift.
