    Please get him a regular long stock tie and any sturdy pin, because they really have a use. This past weekend I had a fall in the field & shattered both bones in a wrist. It took a calm resourceful...

    Will also confirm this sounds pretty typical. Yes it gets better. Remember an OTTB had no idea what an outside rein means, and it is their habit to NOT be straight at anything less than a gallop,...

    I agree the one on the left is a Crosby. Not familiar with Hunterdon model specifically, but this would be one of the pancake Crosby's with quite a forward flap (the way it is sitting on the fence...

    At my barn the two of the favorite lesson horses for adults are 14.2 and 14.1--a Haflinger and a welsh cob, respectively. I am a little biased because these are mine, although I am not the BO and...

    I'm not sure it would work in all situations but when I was coaching my daughter and she had a freezing-at-canter crisis after a fall, I tried all the singing/breathing/lunging etc. to no avail. We...

    I think it is typical for most lesson horses to be limited to 2' or 2.6. Once a rider starts wanting to compete at 2.6 and look to moving up, the rider needs to lease to put that kind of wear on the...

    It just doesn't make sense to pour all your time, money and energy into something you resent and no longer enjoy, and neither does she. You've taken excellent care and now owe her finding her a soft...

    I have a mare that went into a heat in spring of her 4yo year and stayed in heat for nearly 5 months. She was hard to handle 24/7 at the barn, and at times unsafe to be around--not just a question of...

    My understanding is the raspberry leaves work (when they work) because they are high in magnesium. So if magnesium works, RR will do the same thing (but might cost more).

    I used RR leaves on...

    A good schoolie is rare and comes in both pony and horse sizes. Ponies can be devilish, so just getting a pony should not be a goal--getting a saintly schoolie should be the goal.

    That said,...

    I noticed the same thing. We "shopped" this past year pretty regularly via CANTER and the usual sources for project horses. My daughter would have preferred a grey, specifically a dapple grey, but...

    I've always thought zinc oxide was more for scratches than thrush also.

    I will look further into this RAyers. The extent of my knowledge at this point is that entry for said clinic and comp clearly stated a Beta 3 vest required of the kids--on the list with armband and...

    We were shopping this year for about 5 months. My budget was modest and for a project, but with very specific attributes. So this list is for the under $10k category, and closer to 2k. I would say...

    Perhaps I wasn't clear. A clinic and competition venue here requires a rated vest. All the comps and clinics in my area have required a rated vest for any minor. I assume it is an insurance issue....

    Vest fit is such a personal thing and it is worth it to be selective. I found I couldn't stand any that overlap/adjust around the sides of torso (like the intec OP linked to, and a lot not in the...

    OP you aren't asking too much. I wish more people would seek out what you're seeking. It exists! (And is pretty reasonable.)

    Usually one pays much to go to shows to get the judge's opinion. That's the basic idea. If that's a power trip, it's one you've paid dearly for him/her to take.

    We raised kids with the world's most clever Haflinger mare (one who at the beginning would just go to her stall, rider and all, when she decided she was "done"), so believe me, this can be done.
