    Perhaps I misunderstand your quote, but why would you invest $3500 in repair for a tractor that's only worth $3500? My rule of thumb is no more than 50% of the value of the vehicle whether it's a...

    If I understand your query, the only reason you need a formal ring is to endure heavy use. If you can spread your schooling out over the pastures, such that you don't cause wear patterns, that's...

    No experience with Waredaca, but we've run multiple horses/students at both Indiana and Team Challenge and found them to be awesome. Highly recommend both, although I prefer the footing at the KHP.
  4. Soil survey data is awesome, and I've found it...

    Soil survey data is awesome, and I've found it very accurate. But for specific installations you need to get very specific to your site.

    Silty loams/sandy/gravel do not make good bases. Haul in...

    If you have proper drainage and a good base, no maintenance is required other than to prevent incursion of grass.

    We had not ridden on or drug our outdoor arena all winter (since October) before...

    We've built three - a 100 x 200 all weather outdoor, a small dressage arena, and an indoor. You don't want to know what the indoor cost (we saved for a LOT OF YEARS for that one). The 100 x 200 had...

    Do enough research to understand pricing function of east coast vs mid continent. You should also understand the price function for ulr vs mlr vs llr, and why a ulr/big name would be selling a...

    Malibu Moon. Great sire line (have you ever seen an AP Indy who couldn't jump?) And the best mares in the business.

    We also love our Pulpit babies - they're talented, but their biggest asset is...

    In general, we back them in the 3 year old summer, then turn them back out. We'll start flat work in the winter and begin jumping in the spring of their 4 yo year. Circumstances, actual birthdate,...

    Yep, you. You're clinching with your lower leg because you're concerned about his jump. As previous post said, fix your position and balance, don't clinch. Confirmation of inadequate balance is...

    First distocia generally (but not always) raises likelihood of recurrence.

    In my world, selling a foal in the US is nearly impossible. Some breeders are successful, but I suspect they have a developed/captured market.

    We're most successful selling ours as backed 4...

    Isn't it wonderful to have options? Whichever you choose, enjoy!

    I live in Ashland, KY, and can comment on Charleston, WV. Charleston is about 3 hours equidistant from the Virginia Horse Park...

    Welcome to Ashland! Lots of horses, lots of places/ways to ride - few if any of them eventing. To the best of my knowledge, I'm the only event connection on the Kentucky side of the river. We keep...

    We've done it once. Please do not generalize my experience to others, but here's what occurred for us:

    Because of Consul's age, you'll have to use frozen so make sure your mare is suitable. That...

    Fun seeing these old posts resurrected, and realizing the changes that time brings to all of us. Megan now has an indoor, and Jenn is building one!

    NMB, but I'll comment anyway.

    Lucinda is awesome, both as a rider and as a coach. If you want the experience of riding with a legend, attend a clinic with her or Jimmy Wofford or Mary King or...

    There are a plenitude of UL prospects in North America, but our sheer size and lack of organization is a major detriment. Both NA and Europe (as well as Australia and NZ) have more quality horses...

    We're in the same boat at about 8 weeks. Could not train foal to take milk replacer, but he was eating hay/drinking already when the mare went down. We gave him free choice alfalfa and individual...

    I love Louisville (was born there), co-own a farm north of Lexington, and live in the eastern part of Kentucky. Highly recommended. The horse community, strongly eventing oriented, follows I-71...

    I generally prefer farmowner's plus an umbrella liability policy rather than equine specific. If with the same agent/company as the farmowner's, it's pretty cheap (about $300 for $1MM on the...

    Best venue in the country, possibly the world (admittedly, I'm biased as a native born Kentuckian). Jump Start is a top 10 horse trial in the nation, and we usually move several horses up there...
