    Awwwww, I love "The Core." I didn't think it was a trainwreck at all. I thought it had some great lines. I don't care for Hilary Swank, but I found her easily forgettable because of the rest of the...

    I once heard (possibly through this forum) that a good way to store saddles was to bolt 5-gallon pails, on their sides, to the wall, put the saddle on top, and then use the open bucket to store...

    Find a used Brenderup or look into the other European-style trailers that are more available, and be happy and don't worry.

    I tow with the family minivan, so I'm jealous as hell of your Mercedes....

    $65 in north central Massachusetts (includes travel fee).

    Darn horse. :-)

    Ohhhh, I could go on and on about the stereotypes of mares vs. geldings.....

    OP, buy the individual horse, not the stereotype. If it's a great mare, get her. If it's a great gelding --- not that...

    After I win the lottery and buy a huge farm somewhere, I'm dying for the property owner next to me to put up that sign, so that I can put up my own sign saying, "I do or possibly may have done all...

    Be honest about how much you will ride each week, and what you want the experience to be like when you get on. Then find a horse who is geared to the same frequency, style, and attitude that you...

    Good girl, OP. I think you're doing the right thing, for all of you.

    I think you are putting a lot of pressure on a 3-month-old relationship. I would quit trying to cram the future into a box. Anything can happen; that's supposed to be the fun part.

    _After_ you...

    I think the two least-stressful, most predictable options are 1) rent out entire facility and have no responsibilities, and 2) continue full-care. Otherwise, you're going to get in the middle of...

    Gift certificates for massages. They'll need them. :-)

    Take the job, and plan to stay over in Framingham two nights a week. Done.

    "Fine, but YOU as the rider must be fit enough for the task, too. If your backside is wider than the horse's, that's your sign."

    OMG, that is so funny. :-) You may not have meant it as a joke,...

    I'm also in for dribble for someone to at least get this pony out of there and then assess for what's going on.

    I am a heavy-ish rider, and ride a medium-build 24-yo opinionated Arab mare. If the angle of my upper body and the weighting of my seat bones is not what Madame feels it should be (and she and my...

    I think I can count the times that it made a difference for me to receive a call right away, vs. in an hour, on...

    Another vote for getting a different farrier/trimmer. The horse can't grow in good feet if he's dealing with flares, under run heels, and uneven growth.

    What is he eating?

    As a woman of a certain age, I would just say that falling off feels the same regardless of breed. Breed is irrelevant to the falling-off process.

    In terms of riding, vs. falling off (making no...
