    Fine if they euthanize pets on request. Problem is, they take in animals promising to rehome them, and euthanize them. See the VA Dept of Ag stats- they actually adopt out a tiny fraction of what...

    My first trail ride was in the 50s, first foxhunt in 1971. I have never used boots for either activity. I 'have' used boots short term for young horses- splint boots- and for one horse that had a...

    Wait...gassing minks is cruel, but gassing dogs and cats isn't?
  4. Whether such a dog is 'legally contained' would...

    Whether such a dog is 'legally contained' would depend on the fence laws in the particular jurisdiction/state. But it's irrelevant here. The two individuals trespassed in order to take property...

    Well, here's a random example, a 4,000 yo body found in an Irish bog- skin still intact: http://www.livescience.com/38983-irish-bog-body.html

    So maybe in 4,000 years they'll find Shergar!

    Based on my experience, I would disagree. 'Downhill' does not equal heavy on the forehand anymore than 'uphill' automatically equates to 'not' heavy on the forehand.

    There is nothing wrong with horses being on the streets of NYC, or any other city, for that matter. In fact horses have a legal right to every road, excepting interstates, and there are even...

    I agree with Appsolute, I like her wild style. I wouldn't say she was the best for 'form' amongst the 15 NFR finalists but I've seen a heck of a lot worse, and you don't get those times if the horse...

    The carriage horse owners have no official position on slaughter. And rightly so, since it is not relevant to the issue of whether being a carriage horse equals anything other than good horse...

    Indeed, I can't recall Martha Josey ever bouncing around excessively.

    She's 76 years old. I may need a little velcro when I'm 76, too. I would bet with that velcro she can still beat folks half...

    Just to show you how nutty these anti-carriage folks are (Yes, I know you are reading here:)), I understand from some posts on Facebook that they've taken one of Bluey's posts (the one quoted by...

    Bogs are great at preserving things, the source of many old finds from thousands of years ago.

    Well, here's a page of Lisa Lockhart for comparison, admittedly better form on the whole but I suppose if I went looking I'd see decent shots of Fallon too.

    Thinking of show jumpers and hunters,...

    My 14h cowhorse bred mare is about a quarter inch taller at the butt than the withers. She is better balanced by far than some heavy-on-the-forehand-but-built-uphill horses I've seen.

    I've owned...

    You have hit the nail on the head. EVERY horse owner in EVERY discipline ought to be worried about this. When elected officials rely on RARAs for 'information' as the basis for a decision, instead...

    From the pix it I agree with your concern- looks like you don't have enough clearance over the withers- when you have a rider on that saddle it could well hit the withers. Ideally when you are...

    Unfortunately I think this is a problem that will only get worse. Animal control officers, and animal welfare authorities, just generally don't want to mess with horses, they don't have the...

    IMO whether western or English if for whatever reason your procedure causes your horse to have to take a step to counter balance, you should use a mounting block (or if possible work on the strength...

    Well, that is a great example of how not to do it. Even without the bratty horses, the clutter in the aisle is unacceptable if you are running horses in or out.
