    It's not what you want to hear, but my experience is that fireworks directly overhead (especially the first time) are far scarier to every horse I've owned than fireworks in the distance. I know this...

    We're not showing yet, so maybe we don't count, but I started doing dressage with my QH reiner in December. We are having a lot of fun and it's exposing all the gaps in my riding skills. We're...

    Y'all are making me really really glad that I have a very very short pixie cut and I don't have to mess with any of this. I'm never growing my hair out again...

    As a recent convert from reining to dressage I dutifully bought full seats and loved them. Then I finally got my own saddle and found that the grippy calf leather seat and full seats is enough to...

    My somewhat easy keeping QH gets a pint of TC Sr and a multi vitamin rather than a ration balancer. He just doesn't need the calories.

    I said an hour. By the time we warm up, work, and cool down I'm rarely in the saddle for less than that. Even the days that we trail ride the minimum is an hour and frequently we're out 2-3 hours.

    It is hot and humid, but as a native Minnestan it's really not that bad.

    I had a lesson Friday afternoon and we both did fine. Then I rode at 9 am the last 2 days before it hit 80. I hosed him...

    Huh. I wonder if that's a discipline thing. At least in all the western barns I've ridden at the farrier shows up, checks the board, pulls out the horse(s) on that day's list, puts them in the...

    Slightly off topic. When y'all say "hold the horse" are you literally holding the horse rather than tying or cross tying it? My farriers have always either tied to a rail (before I had cross ties) or...

    My farrier is also hard to schedule with (or his wife is, actually) and we've come to an agreement that if I can't be there, he will get me horse out and do him without me. I wouldn't make that...

    That is a seriously cute mule. If I was in GA I'd be super tempted.

    The trainer I ride with has multiple big horses in their late teens and early to mid-20s still going strong. One is showing level 2 and pony club stuff with her teen leaser and doing very well.

    I...

    My little mule (who I got from a COTHer) is a geat companion. She has her own paddock and stall but does go out on pasture with my QH gelding. They get along well and she is very good at defending...

    It took me 3 months and 23 saddles to find one that we both liked. In that time I found a number that got JD, but I didn't like most of them for me.

    Yep, I'd call Jay at Trumbull, she's awesome to work with. And I second asking if you've tried the Kent & Masters, Thorowgood, or Fairfax. They all fit my wide backed, somewhat narrowed shouldered,...

    I had better luck calling her than emailing. Once I got ahold of her she was great to work with.

    Heartland Saddlery is in Calgary and she sells most of the English brands. I would guess she could work with pictures and tracings to help you. I bought my new Fairfax from her.

    Totally depends on the horse. Mine doesn't get galls from the neoprene cinches, and I used a Professional's Choice one for years, but he seems to like the felt better. So hey, that's what he gets. :)

    I also use the Weaver Smart Felt cinches. Only thing that doesn't make my QH gelding grouchy.

    According to the records, it's either the 5th or 6th fastest Belmont in history.

    Is this when I admit to being a bad horse owner (in the PNW like JoZ) with a huge cherry tree in my pasture that I don't worry about? I don't fence them off it, I don't obsessively rake leaves. I DO...

    Someone offered his former owner a close to six figure sum for my horse when he was a reining futurity prospect, and I paid what I would consider real money for him (not in the range you're speaking...

    My nightmare - but it actually did happen 2 weeks ago.

    I went to take my lesson and when I got back turned my QH and his mini mule girlfriend out in the pasture (about 6:30 pm). I went in the...

    Thanks all. Arlosmine - what would qualify as real deal boots? I'm a reiner posing as a dressage rider...
