    Manni, while I agree with some others that if I considered it a huge problem, ie your thread title, I likely would've gotten the vet out sooner, but you're much more comfortable with foaling than I...

    While I normally advocate trying to work with a seller, since sometimes it is a honest mistake - if the seller has not offered to pay for the shipping in both directions for their mistake - file a...

    You're not a dressage rider. So why are you passing judgement on a piece of equipment that the vast majority of dressage riders that use it, use it compassionately? I see very few riders with their...

    Well, after this many years I think it is officially not a fad.

    I use one, definitely loose enough to get a couple of fingers underneath it. I like it for the padding. My horse has a big enough...

    I have the same problem. I use one of the double back around your neck and velcro varieties, and I added some extra velcro to make the strip longer - so I can make it much looser. Yes, if you are...

    Just out of random curiousity - how long are they on the ship if you do ocean cargo? My BIL was transferred to and from Maui in the last couple of years, but I never asked how long his stuff took to...

    OP, I think I know what you are experiencing. My horse found the trot I needed for his PSG, which he could do on a straight line and in the corners. But when I went ask for the shoulder in or half...

    My tb/dutch/Clyde cross is just coming back from a minor knee issue that kept him out of any real work for 6 weeks. He showed PSG last year and was going awesome before his injury. No real rehab...

    If the tag says ok to wash, then it is.

    I freaked out about my shad when my regular dry cleaner would not do it unless I agreed that they would not be responsible for any damage as they were...

    Not tacky, but I would just deal with any potential buyers from Facebook on my own. Provided you've had the saddle at the shop for the requested time (usually 90 days IME) why if you find the buyer...

    I started my horse showing career at the 4-H county fair. Talk about a unruly crowd some days. The local day camps/day care/pre-schools etc would arrive for a field trip every.single.day. It was a...

    I think the draft cross thing boils down to this:

    Draft cross owners, either F1 or F2 *sometimes* don't understand that a Verband registry is not just throwing together hot and cold and getting...

    Thank God my friends have not sunk to this low yet.

    I have only been privy to one such "reveal" party. It was given for a friend whose husband died in a car accident just before they were going...

    OP - remind me again (really don't want to wade through the other thread again) - do you own or rent?

    What a horrible outcome, but what specifically about the side reins caused the (I'm assuming) fall that resulted in the broken neck? Horses are plenty capable of putting themselves into situations...

    I don't know your specific situation, but as a long time seller, I can absolutely tell you that unless the shipping tracking information shows that someone at your residence signed for the package,...

    Before you toss out the draft-crosses - they are definitely not all created the same and this board has gone round and round in the past about whether anything with first or second generation draft...

    That very well may be, but your general statement does not help the stereotype that any horse with a clean walk/trot/canter can do third level. The tricks, maybe, but not of any quality, and OP...

    I would never intentionally stay off the centerline, especially for your entrance.

    As others have said - do a half circle type turn to the *inside* of the cone and when you are on the centerline,...

    The only two I know of are Betsy VanDyke and Colleen Haveman Forton. I don't know if either of them have school horses. Since I live downstate, I don't know what other options there might be, as...

    Not trying to pick on you in particular - but have you tried all the brands and models on the market, or are you of the "you've got to have the right helmet for the show ring to be taken seriously"...

    I would agree with this to a point - I hate any helmet with "detachable" parts - it is just asking for trouble in my book. And about the quality of the harness and attachment.

    I begrudgingly bought a long sleeve sun shirt at the beginning of the sun season since my lovely sister decided to have her wedding over Labor Day weekend and the dresses are strapless. I *hate*...
