    When my former employer relocated me from NY state to Texas, it paid to ship everything except the horse. My Jack Russell flew with me under the seat, vehicle went on the moving van, but it was up to...

    Recommendations for Hunt Saddles?

    I am new to hunting (started last hunt season) and rode the entire season in my Butet close contact hunt saddle. While it was comfortable, I am thinking I need a slightly deeper seat saddle for...

    Yes, I agree, but we know that dropping a rail is a 40 or 50 point deduction ( I can't remember which). So dropping a rail or having a refusal is obviously a bigger sin than adding a stride in each...

    Do you have a service contract that you ask your attorney clients to sign BEFORE you agree to do the deposition work? If not, I would ask your DH to help you write a short and concise contract that...

    I would also check at the local feed store or tack shop (not sure if there is a tack shop in Waco, but surely there is a feed store. Also, there is a Centex Hunter Jumper Association, I would contact...

    I recently showed my horse at a USEF 'A' rated show in a hunter division. My trainer and I decided that it would be best for me to be conservative and add a stride in each line due to a problem I...

    From my perspective, being the in gate person is the hardest job at a horse show. I've found communication with the in gate goes a long way towards making the show run smoothly for everyone. That's...
