    I read this one because I love mysteries and figured it was worth a shot since it was free anyway. I've since bought and read all of the series so far. They're fun, fast paced reads.

    Well, sort of. The thing is, most warmblood registries have been around a long time and the resulting horses registered are the result of generations of selective breeding to get the desired traits....

    Age is not nearly as important as overall behavior and training. A well trained 10 year old will be much more predictable than a green 3 year old, but don't make your decision on age alone. My 14...

    I used to ride an appy colt who liked to "swing in the breeze":lol:. He would masturbate if left to his own devices in his stall or pasture, but under saddle he just seemed to like the extra airflow....

    Just because the show is at the OP's barn doesn't mean that the barn is putting it on. The barn may just be the venue. Other than a few schooling shows put on by local trainers at their own...

    I have three Roma pads with the wicking lining (two dressage one AP). They are on the heavy side, but wick well. I tend to use them most in the winter, when it's harder to bathe a sweaty horse.

    I...

    I swim alone frequently, but I am a strong swimmer and I can float with zero effort if I need a rest. That being said, if the ocean was warm enough to swim in here, I probably would not swim alone in...

    You can go without braiding if the mane is neat. The jacket depends on the show. If the weather is hot, it is not unusual for coats to be waived. I'd contact the show office to find out the dress...

    I love Pyramid's Apricot Ale and Hefeweizen, raspberry and apple lambics (the cherry ones are too sweet for me) Lindeman's is the easiest lambic brand to find, but my favorites are from Mort Subite;...

    I'm going to throw celiac disease out there too, even though it may be a longshot.

    Your symptoms are almost exactly the same as what one of my good friends was going through since high school up...

    Darn, if only they had them in wide... No way could I cram my calves into the fulls. :no: If we had a halfway decent boot shop around here I'd buy them anyway.
  12. I'm so sorry. (((((Hugs)))))

    I'm so sorry. (((((Hugs)))))

    Jumping, obstacle courses set up in the arena, indoor mountain trail course, hauling to different arenas to school, and trick training with my current mare. We currently board at a western barn that...

    :lol: My mare was bred for the track, but her breeder died before she was old enough to go to training and she ended up being bought by an eventer without ever seeing the track. She is fine alone or...

    I hate blingy back pockets and pockets with flaps on jeans. I just think it looks tacky. Haven't seen bling on breeches yet, but think it is a stupid idea unless you want to scratch up the seat of...

    Well, my mare was far from expensive when I bought her, but I take her out on the trails as much as possible to help with her conditioning and to keep from burning her out on work. She loves it, and...

    I use My Tracks, too. I use it riding, hiking, skiing, running, etc. and have yet to have lack of signal be a problem. Most of the places I hike and ski have no cell reception or minimal reception...

    Thanks everybody. They're in pretty good shape, so I'll just polish them up and not worry about a high gloss.
  19. Polishing "soft" boots... can it be done?

    I have a pair of Parlanti-esqe boots (the ones from this thread) that I use for schooling.

    Due to an old ankle sprain and associated scar tissue, I can't get my left dress boot on. I have a...

    I'm guessing you were going to have him go to Lori Forge? Carrie Parker is Lori's sister and trains in a similar style. She trains out of Oregon Horse Center in Eugene. I highly recommend her, she is...

    Please, please get out now. Just because he hasn't "hit" you yet, doesn't mean he won't, and if he's "pushing you around" you are being abused.

    I would go over your contract and hold her to it if she is asking for things that are not specifically listed. If they are listed, then unfortunately the responsible thing is to pay the costs...

    Yes, I would definitely spray the yard if they have to live outside and try Vectra or another newer generation topical. Many of the older generation of topicals don't work well anymore because...

    Not creepy at all. In fact, it is how I ended up with the mare I have now. Her owner sent out an email to the trainers listed with our local GMO. My trainer saw the email, thought the mare was...
