    CC - I loan my Socks mare out every time there's an IHSA show at the barn near me. I don't put any limits on what they can use her for, which means she's usually in the 3' hunter classes, but I do...

    I agree with kbrethauer that you may have a hard time pinning down John(Thumbs Up) along with many others as folks start hauling down for Thermal. But I will say that he is one of the few trainers...

    You know what they say....the only thing worse than buying a horse is selling a horse (and vice versa) :lol:

    I've had some instances where I've found "the" horse literally the second I decided to...

    It's kind of a funny nickname. Every time I say "poprocks" to someone I think to myself that they really look more like Nerds, but that's just not as catchy! :lol:

    I agree that the answer is usually "more than what you've got" :lol:

    I have 6 horses on 5 acres (every inch of the property is usable, which is definitely not the norm around here). All live out...

    I feel like a lot of comments on this thread have lost sight of the fact that the kid is FIVE and riding is inherently a heck of a lot more dangerous for a kid than any of the other sports mentioned....

    This sounds very reasonable. My 5 1/2 year old daughter is in lessons at a lesson barn as well. In my opinion she's far too young to leave by herself for all of the reasons detailed in the many posts...

    I haven't seen the Troxels (I'm assuming that's what you meant), but I have an Ovation Schooler that I absolutely love. I got one for my daughter a while back and decided that I liked hers so much...

    I voted N, MN, and M, as those are where most of my saddles fall size-wise.

    Of my going horses:

    I don't have the Mios, but all of my giant-withered horses (TB and WB) are in the Amigo Bravo 12s. The reason is because my big jumper won a bunch of other Amigo sheets and blankets through the show...

    I only have an outdoor ring, so I ride in the rain whenever it rains around here, and that's often! I've had my saddles get soaked through to the point that there's not even a dry spot under the...

    The 3'6" AO Hunters are the same place the High AO Jumpers are. I have several friends who given a choice between 1.20m and 1.40m would go with the 1.40m. But given a 1.30m option always stick with...

    Same thing happened to me. I called in and they said that it was because I was already getting the SmartPerks discount (for having a couple of horses on SmartPaks) and also the USEF discount, so it...

    I just got the papers for my new pony and he is a steel (dappled) grey and was pretty dark when he was young. But on the papers I saw that he was born a palomino. I would put money on the fact that...

    I have a handful of leather halters that I just absolutely adore. One of them is a now-11-year-old Weaver that is hands down my favorite. Sadly, I've never been able to find the same one and I can't...

    I'm usually the first to suggest County, and will say that I ride my medium pony in my 17" County Sensation with no issue at all (from a length of back perspective), but it depends on more than just...

    Yes, you can. I've done it, but the problem is that I like to start with my stirrups backwards and then end up with them in the right place at one point or another. 90 degrees ends up working best...

    I have MDC stirrups on all of my saddles. The regular footbed and non-jointed on all of my younger/non-showing horses, and then the wide-footbed (still non-jointed) on my GP horse. I have a weird...

    I'm a huge fan and have seen big differences with Hot Hoof (I and II), Stomach Happy, Body Sore, and Cervical Formula. I'm sure I've tried a couple of others, but I can't recall off hand what they...

    Most of my horses get clipped for the winter and blanketed accordingly, but my youngsters typically stay unclipped, as does my daughter's small pony. The small pony gets nothing on him at any point...
