    To give you a contrasting view-- I might do 10 or 12 recognized HTs a year at Training, in the Midatlantic region/ area 2. I keep my horse at my family's farm and work off board. My big expenses...

    You laugh-- but my mom is exactly the kind of person as Midnight Writer's friend apparently. After my aunt (her sister) came to visit my mom said, "I found a tag from the top "Jane" wore the other...

    I would skip the stall. I found that when we stabled babies for in hand shows someone invariably came home with a snotty nose. Hang out in the trailer-- just bring plenty of hay and water.

    I had a traditional, GM approved stainless steel fillis stirrup break this morning, thankfully while I was just trotting over a small log at home. So I'm in the market for new stirrups. I...

    For most of the classes/ TB awards I've seen, horses just need a TIP number, and you just need the horse's registered name to get that. My horses are both registered but I don't have their papers...

    Is this the barn where you weren't comfortable going to the horse show because you were afraid the barn owner would be nasty? If you really want to move there, I would just call her up and say,

    Personally if Training or Prelim is your goal, I would look for something that is a sportier type-- a lot of these look more like stock horses. Even if color is a priority for you, I would look for...

    I wouldn't really call that ticklish-- but I find that many tbs are pretty sensitive and don't really enjoy grooming.

    I am on a pretty strict budget and usually spend $25-$50. I spend more for close friends/ family, less for cousins and people I haven't seen since school (and more for people I think really NEED the...

    Sure but I also fly Southwest all the time (so no reserved seats) and I'm an organ donor and don't really care what happens to my body in the event that it's not useful to me or anyone else.

    When I went to put my xc vest on for my lesson this morning, I noticed my polo shirt was on inside out. Not sure how I made it five hours without realizing. I'm pretty paranoid about the skirt...

    My input is this: when we break horses we routinely start by leading them with a rider. Then they walk loose next to the handler. Eventually they do it by themselves. Not the first day, sometimes...
