    I usually just say no, I don't have an "anybody can ride" horse. Then I show them a picture of one of my Saddlebred show horses- a trot picture from the show ring. They quickly realize I don't have...

    Maybe so, but that doesn't mean she's not in danger. She's just a kid with a 52 yr old man. That's more than a little creepy in my book.
  3. VA peeps! Look- missing teen and horse!

    I didn't see this posted yet and it came across my Facebook feed. Her horse is very distinguishable.

    I'd call it a "need". We have lots of wet which makes all but the best outdoor rings mostly unusable a lot of the time. Unless you ride very early morning or close to sundown in the summer, the sun...

    I have a pair of saddle seat full seat jods. They're very comfortable to wear but I certainly don't feel the need to ride in them on a regular basis. Last time I rode in them was a few years ago. I...

    Just curious coming from another discipline... what do you all do if you have to show in the rain?

    Unless it's a super high end show, ss people will wear a windbreaker type jacket and ball cap...

    I was going to suggest lidocaine too. I have packets of burn jel from where I used to work- I discovered by accident that it will stop the itch from the worse bug bites on me, so it should work on...

    Has your weather been unusually hot? I've had a few horses here and there that go a bit off-feed in extreme heat.

    Or maybe he's just decided he doesn't like his old feed anymore and wants to make...

    People don't know what they don't know.

    Would have been so hard to smile and say "We don't like strangers around the horses. They can easily hurt you without meaning to. And you should never feed...

    If it was just a show and not something like a state fair, I'd still be OK with it. People look around and see farm names on banners and say "Hey, that's near where I live." It might encourage...

    Exactly this.

    I love to share my horses with people. It's very rare that I don't have time to talk to somebody or let a kid pet a horse.

    It might take a minute to explain to keep fingers out...

    I would never assume someone would trailer me unless they specifically stated so, as in "I want to go to XYZ show, want to go with me? We'll take my trailer."

    Otherwise, I think I would have...

    I'm still trying to figure out why you're making a big deal and being "offended" over basically nothing.

    What other people think of you is none of your business.

    Being all safety conscious and all :winkgrin:, I wear fake Crocs for just about anything but riding or haying. For that I wear sneakers!

    I have one posted on my private farm. It was free from KY Farm Bureau Insurance.

    While I'm not a professional in the equine world, a lawyer could probably argue that I have professional...

    With a horse that isn't afraid, knows better, and is just being a butthead- a buggy whip across the butt and a stern "Get your ass on the damn trailer" usually does the trick.

    Young horses can...

    For those that say it's "just a belt"... if it's a timing belt it often means catastrophic damage and not worth fixing. Even if it's not a valve-bender, it's still not cheap to have fixed.

    Anyway,...

    Living east of the Mississippi, I've rarely needed to conserve water. But sometime in the past 20 years, I've discovered and prefer to bathe horses with a bucket and big car wash sponge from the...

    I love upstate NY, but the main reason I moved (besides the brutal winters) is the high taxes. Sure I could have afforded the mortgage, but not taxes that were just as much as said mortgage.

    The mileage wouldn't bother me if it's got the 7.3 in it. We've got a '99 F350 regular cab dually 4x4 with the 7.3 that'll pull anything and not give it a second thought. It loves hills!

    However,...

    If the OP has dogs, renting or a hotel may not be do-able.

    Anyway, DH and I live in a 1 BR apt attached to the barn. We built it, it's ~600 sq. ft. It's cluttered because neither one of us are...

    I also think some are over doing it.

    Our first farm was ten acres. The tractor we got was 50+ HP Int'l 574 with FEL for $3500(similar tractor now might cost $6500). Diesel, but not 4WD....
