    Well, I don't know any other Americans living around me at the moment so the T-Day passed quite overlooked this year.

    Fixing the stall kicker

    Since moving to the barn we're at now, my mare has developed a terrible stall kicking habit. Other horses at the barn kick at their stall walls around feeding time, my mare seems to lately be taking...

    I think there are plenty of ammys looking for the rideable, reliable, knowledgeable horse regardless of its pedigree. Price is hard as it's so subjective -- basically whatever someone is wiling to...

    I've found great places to stay using airbnb all over Europe and in NA. So far I've only had great experiences!

    I'm not a hotel person, I just find them so stuffy and soul-sucking! So AirBNB is a...

    Just did a quick dreamhorse search for Maryland and came across these -- smallish, mid-4 figures, and all listed as being brave x-country, easy on the ground, etc. They're out there, you just need to...

    A lot of people have addressed the study skills aspect of your post -- and I fully agree that a lot of highschools don't actually teach efficient study skills. In HS they only give you an amount of...

    I was a working student in the UK for a few months a couple years ago (2007 -- so more than a couple now. Yikes!)
