    I have no studies off-hand but I'm pretty sure 3-4 years (FROM THE DATE OF MANUFACTURE, NOT PURCHASE) is the recommended "replace it no matter what" rule of thumb. Maybe it's 5 years. I know I was...

    In pure hunter-land, many moons ago, I was taught outside rein, outside leg. And that was pretty consistent across the many trainers I had. And a lot of them didn't actually seem to care much how I...

    Does anyone have any suggestions about where I can find a good deal on some hot-weather apparel? Any cheap sleeveless polo shirt outlets out there? Or other ideas? I'm not keen to spend $40 on a...

    I went to Hidden Fox Farm once several years ago (I was visiting a friend who lives in CA), in El Cajon. I'm not sure if it is father east than you were hoping but it IS north of San Diego. And they...

    I'm a perfectionist and prefer to ride when things are going very well. Unfortunately, horses have off days, we have off days, and you have to learn how to work through them because we don't always...

    If he just needs to gain weight, and there isn't an underlying disease, I have had FANTASTIC result with adding aloe vera juice to my horse's diet.

    Before you fill it with your tack goodies, flip that sucker upside down and put wheels on one end, fixed legs on the other end, and a very sturdy handle on at least the side w/ the fixed legs (if not...

    Not because you have a trainer who doesn't jump, but because you have the opportunity to start a horse from scratch, essentially, and...

    Or, if she really is a worthwhile trainer, you could *make sure* you get the services you are paying for. Before the next show you could say, "What time should we schedule my schooling?" to convey...

    I imagine your current stall has space to tack up in it, is lit well enough to groom in it, space to set your tack down while you're grooming, is maybe easily accessible to cross ties and trips to...

    I think you raise a good point. What if I'm 40 and no longer want to be Nickname? Undoing that will be annoying indeed. Especially from a license perspective. Flip-flop, flip-flop!

    There is a difference between riding effectively and riding in a way that doesn't piss off your horse. And there *shouldn't* be much of a difference between riding pretty and riding effectively....
