    I don't think it's a good idea, especially with how you explain the area has changed. Maybe a cash prize unless to a 4-H home if they prefer the heifer?

    I loved my Marmot Precip, waterproof, athletic (competed a wet 50-mile endurance ride in it!). Sadly after 4 years of hard use it has lost waterproofing. I've re-proofed it with the recommended...

    I don't know if this will help much, as it isn't a good story. My first horse (so I was clueless, surrounded by those who knew more, but still) an 11-year-old Arab gelding, presented with heavy...

    I tow a small two horse and camp in the back of my truck, but enough is similar! One thing I like to do is have a great thermos. I heat water up the night before on a single-burner propane stove, and...

    I saw the photo on my AERC facebok feed, and that was enough. Completely awful. However, for me, I don't connect the sport I've seen here in my region to what they are doing in other countries....

    On more casual rides I'll go barefoot, or sometimes boot just the front. But on rocky trails or when we're really moving out, I prefer to boot all four. I can see a difference in my horse's...
