For those that watched at home, be thankful you are dry! It was simply pouring down and I saw a few people walking alternative lines as the day went on. The shopping area was packed all day, and...
Sinead Halpin and 14.2 hands of pony mare.
I would caution that you only school water where you know there is solid footing, especially if your horse is nervous. Take her into water and having her get stuck in mud and she's going to lose...
Currently we have thunderstorms predicted, so how will any delays in start times, driving rain, or footing affect riders?
You need to introduce it in a structured teaching session with another horse available to give you a lead in.
If you are trail riding I'd stick her behind a seasoned horse and take her somewhere...
I think that if the home inside the barn is very nice, well insulated, doesn't smell, has proper fire safety barriers, you will have no problem selling it to another horse person.
It would depend on how they are tied and how stupid they were but I would not worry with a horse that was a good bather.
I am local to the area and I do not believe that a vet would refuse to come out. If they were out of town they would suggest another vet. I think that a vet can only make suggestions over the phone...
ACTHA is a lot of fun though and can be very competitive. It's usually a 6 - 8 mile ride at whatever pace you want, slow is fine. The obstacles can be very challenging and you learn how broke your...
I think that you still need to have a vet out immediately, not wait until your scheduled appointment, have the culture done. Diagnosing over the phone is a best guess and a maybe and even the best...
I'm probably 20 minutes from you and I might be able to help at least find a barn Check your private messages. I can also help with eventing trainers as well once your mare is better.
We literally throw hay in my barn. The stall tops are open and it's easy to throw the hay right over the top than waste time opening doors. Newcomers usually ping around the stall the first few...
You can't actually get in the gate without Dubarrys. They check your ticket and your feet.
Unless there is thunder and lightning they will run no matter what. They may remove or move some...
I really enjoyed this one, the end brought tears to my eyes.
and found this one fascinating. A...
You mean a cautionary tale where people learn how to spot someone pretending to be someone else to beg for money for themselves?
I don't know about anything else, but $1,000 is WAY WAY over kill price. I have only seen a horse at a low end auction make that price a few times.
There is no lunch break this year although most people tend to eat at the same time so try eating later or earlier.
El Jalapeno's looked like a dive and the service was sketchy but the food was fantastic.
Yes, they do not limit tickets on XC day. You just need a grounds ticket. Just bring a machete if you plan on doing any shopping.
Does anyone else wish they had parents who could buy them $250 SCHOOLING breeches?
Im totally quitting my job to groom for $40 an hour. Thats more than double what i kake now and i own a horse.
Would tbis be different if the entry fee was more in line with a regular event? ,
Let me ask this, is it so common to have so many withdrawl at this level? Or does it have something to do with Rolex in particular?
I think that's a question of if she was asked to do all that work and still had to pay for a groom, because I'd have issue with that.
