    Here is my navicular horse story.

    I bought a horse years ago with terrible navicular rads. When I bought him he was a sound 4yo, OTTB. The changes had been found during a previous PPE for...

    I can't go this year and this thread is killing me!

    The beer proofed in bourbon barrels is absolutely the best-somebody please drink some for me, okay?

    The rhododendron and laurel are different. Riding through them in full bloom is quite the trail ride. I was at South Mtn. State Park the beginning of the week and the buds on the rhododendron there...

    Suz-anywhere south of Asheville will be an easy place to live. Henderson and Transylvania counties didn't miss much more school than we did down the mountain in Polk Co. DH drives a school bus, so...

    NYE-I am an unapologetic tack snob, and right now, to my horror, I am using an HDR. What's more, I don't have one negative thing to say about it!

    I got it last year when I needed a medium tree,...

    Not to pile on to the poor OP, but I can't imagine anyone not loving my MIL's accent. She grew up in Columbus, GA. When she speaks, magnolias burst into bloom.

    There are motels back up 74 towards Shelby, and all the usual restaurant chains (Applebee's, Chilies) in that direction, too.

    Giardini's (sp?) between Columbus and Mill Spring is a wonderful place...

    OP-right now I am hunting (enjoying and loving to death) a 14h Connamara/Welsh cross pony. She is in my barn because she is a little bit of a sensitive ride, and hates children-she's spun kids off...

    [QUOTE=Eventer13;8078883]I thought it was to be suspended above the saddle when the inside hind leg was off the ground, so it would be easier for the horse to step up under its center of gravity with...

    I have a Beaufort that was built for a very broad backed TB mare. She was prone to be sore backed, so saddle fit and panel condition was very important. The SW people were super to work with.
