    I did it with a drink once. My dad was visiting the barn and offered me his soda as he was leaving and I was finishing my ride. As I rode my horse in on a loose rein with my legs kicked forward, I...

    I remember fondly my childhood blue suede chaps that, when I wore them with my shorts, they turned my legs blue. I looked like my parents beat me daily on my legs. :)

    Really though, it is "only" a $50 difference. For that small a difference, I would go with full leather rather than suede and leather. Once the suede wears down it gets slick.

    Well, mine were the Tredstep Deluxe, which I think may fall between the Liberty and the G2s for price point. They were great chaps that lasted for many years. My only complaint was the stupid...

    With my tredsteps, I got the best fit by buying what I could just barely get on. After about a week of cursing, you'll have a perfect fit.

    It's time to replace my tredsteps and I too can't...

    Buy a draft size bridle that matches his other bridle, then mix and match the pieces. Or buy the headstall crown and browband that match your WB sized bridle and do the same.

    Take a deep breath, put your foot in the stirrup and mount up. Put your feet in the stirrups, check your girth, take an even deeper breath and start walking. Take a light feel, get good rhythm going,...

    Snowflake, are you the one who got the "once in a lifetime horse" due to the bad shoeing "injury," and is this him?

    If so, I will say that learning to ride a horse with big horsey strides and lots...

    It wanted me to put a sheet on my horse yesterday when it was 55 degrees and sunny. My horse lives out, but is unclipped at the moment (trying to make it as long as possible so I only have to clip...

    One of the things that I thought was very interesting about this one that you don't see with some of the more breed-specific shows, was the variety of horses. They had Lipizzaners, Andalusians, an...

    Yes, I get that. However, her kindness and charity now seems to be creating an issue with the other previously agreed upon fees that she was charging for using the horse for the day.

    What I'm...

    Honestly, you could be charging her for a horse rental fee + braiding + shipping and also going for yourself and that would be totally fair. So anything less you choose to charge her is not only...

    I saw it and enjoyed it quite a bit. As a horse person, I particularly enjoyed the part where they brought out horses with different levels of training and showed step by step how they taught them to...

    THis is my first year and I'm very excited. Can't wait to secret Santa up the place!

    My horse is a bit of a hard keeper, partly because he is big (17'1) and partly because he won't stop growing. We've really struggled to get that last bit of muscle on him.:)

    He currently gets:

    Many small businesses operate on razor tight margins. So, in a slow month with limited business, someone ordering a saddle, a nice bridle and a pair of boots (that's easily $2500 worth of stuff or...

    I would say that if you changed it to 3-4 days a week with either a Friday or a Saturday evening, you would probably get a taker. If you work a real job, you normally want one weekend evening to...

    How are her heels? If they're low and the ground is at all hard, it's possible they're stinging after a bit of work, but then getting better when she isn't working. I'd have your farrier check and...

    I would simply discuss your financial concerns with the BO in a polite way. Maybe there is some sort of deal you can work out. For instance, if you are paying for stall cleaning, etc., that is a...
