    Riding Warehouse is doing 20% off. They are aimed more towards endurance but they have a lot of great english stuff also. Kind of a different mix of gear than the more "standard" catalogs.

    Oh yes, this is something I did too. For example, in college, every time I went out to dinner with friends, I had water instead of a soda and put the $5 into my horse account. Better for my health,...

    It's okay! Taking lessons is a great way to keep your hand in and at a manageable level of commitment.

    And, there are lots of other things you may be able to do in the meantime... watch videos!...

    The hind legs on the halter horses these days are so straight they are nonfunctional. Wouldn't have believed it was even possible. It's such a shame and I don't understand why judges reward a horse...

    That is the section that keeps you from wearing your neon orange jacket with your lime green breeches, :lol: :D and is not about rein preference. :D

    Yeah, um, he's found something I can't figure out. I have to be holding the springs open on both sides to unroll mine. It hurts, plus I have no hand left to pull the webbing out. What's wrong with me?

    Ouuuuuch.

    Here they seem to be able to hold it under $200 for dogs and around $100 for spaying a cat, less for neuter. I think, seeing the other prices, that the vet hospitals around here...
  12. Those cargo straps - is there a trick to releasing them?

    I love the way the web cargo straps tighten down with their ratchet action, but I always seem to need three hands to release them in order to change the length. Surely there's a trick I'm missing to...

    It's similar in function to a figure-8. It may be that this horse is happier in this style, or that it fits him better, than a leather figure-8. I haven't used one, but it may be that you have a bit...

    Perhaps I should rephrase. :) No judge will care and it will not affect your score in any way. After that, it's all up to the look that makes *you* feel happy and comfortable. It doesn't matter to me...

    Pfft. No one will notice, and if they do, you'll start a trend.

    Plaited reins are more expensive to make and they're also slightly more vulnerable to breakage. But otherwise, they're extremely...

    I really love plaited reins. They are very soft and because they conform to your hand so well, very easy to grip and great for smaller hands especially.

    I recommend getting a catalog from http://www.premier1supplies.com. It is like a textbook for electric fencing. They package solar chargers as well.

    For the short bed, there are solutions, including a hitch extender that will back off the nose of the trailer. However, I still suspect the LQ in either form will be too much trailer for the truck.
