    I thought you had to keep your bridle number on your horse somewhere for XC? I always do left side of my bridle or left-hand side of my breast collar. That way if you and your horse part ways, they...

    My view on Perfect Prep and other oral combinations of amino acids and magnesium that are labelled as "calming" is that it does diddly squat if your horse isn't deficient. If your horse is deficient,...

    1. They go around the front billet to help keep the saddle pad in place. I cut them off my pads because I don't find them critical, and I think they're a pain to deal with since I use a half pad over...

    I have a wool cooler from Jack's MFG that I paid very little for several years ago. I also have a couple Irish knits and two fleece coolers. One of the fleece is from Shire's, middle-of-the-line...

    I clip to help them cool out. Also, both my TBs are very prone to skin funk and once it sets in, it is nearly impossible to clear up with their thick winter coats. Right now they are happy in full...

    Sooo, out of curiosity (because I looked it up and it's only $300 from Walmart, and I presume even cheaper with some smart online shopping!), can you make your own logos and designs and then use your...

    I'm not sure if they even still make them as I got mine off Tack of the Day a year and a half ago at half the retail price, but my Grand Prix Elites are STIFF. I did the bathtub method (multiple...

    I think I've ordered stuff from them 5 times. I've been happy with the slow, but reliable service except that one of those 5 times, I never got what I ordered.

    They automatically charged my card,...

    As for your original question, others have made it clear that it's perfectly fine to sit the working trot at BN. The only places that I know of where you must post is on the stretchy circles. In...

    I wholeheartedly agree with what others have said- at the lower levels, it's all about aptitude and/or show record. A smart buyer will look for a show record and will likely want to take the horse...

    I read that different- that she uses a bonnet because she doesn't want to clip her own horse's ears and it covers up the hairy ears. But hey, I could be mis-reading it.

    I use fly bonnets at home...

    I'm in Area VIII, within an hour of the KHP. I'll admit that I feel very spoiled to be so close to such a great venue. It's really the only nice venue in Lexington (one show does hold its XC at a...

    Advice for Rehoming Rabbits

    I feel like a terrible person and like I'm letting down these animals, but I have two adult rabbits that I've decided I need to rehome. It's a male and female who are bonded to each other and...

    I've even gone so far as checking the IHSA rulebook and it seems to indicate that you're eligible so long as you're an undergrad.

    I purposely rode my horse for years on the wrong diagonal. He was more balanced that way. Our tests sucked anyways (horse was nuts), but I don't think being on the wrong diagonal made the scores any...
  22. Tell Me About Your Fake Tail- and Where to Find Used??

    Just what the title says- please tell me about your fake tail. I came over here since I figured more hunter/jumpers are likely to have fake tails than eventers, but it is for my event horse. I've...
