    I typically ship with boots, unless hauling a long distance, in which case I might switch to wraps. I prefer boots because they are quick and easy. I do a lot of short trips (30 minutes or less) and...

    Softening/breaking in lined boots

    I acquired a really gorgeous pair of used Vogel boots last fall that were very lightly used, so not much broken in. They are gorgeous and I adore them, but they are stiff and uncomfortable in a...

    Also, try them both. Some horses go better in one vs the other.

    Totally missed that the first time around. That one isn't bad looking either!

    Too bad it's black!

    Bartville...ugh. But I guess that's good. I'll impose on the good nature of one of my Bartville local friends if I decide to pursue it!

    I like this a lot and love 5 Star stuff....but does anyone else make something similar in a more modest price point?

    Exactly this.

    A lot of people I know who would never think to step foot at any of the events in the area to spectate went to the thing there last year. I expect the same for this year, because...

    Not the same injury, but a bad tibial compound fracture that left me out of the saddle for 5.5 months. I'm rapidly approaching the 2 year mark since the injury (time flies!) and would say I am 100%...

    Between the cooperation of the two events (which I think there was even a promotional video made for the weekend) and the vastly different crowds they are likely to draw, I doubt Surefire will...

    My iPhone does so much for me. They aren't just phones, they are basically computers and cameras and music/media players and god knows what else. Of course, it will depend a lot on how much of any of...

    Knowing what can happen to a horse and rider while hunting regularly, you're probably well served with lessons. Showing is good fun and definitely beneficial for a lot of horses, but lessons can be...

    As someone who often deals with a funky coat due to various skin issues, time. Time, elbow grease, and extra fat. Not much you can do topically, other than groom, groom, groom.

    I did the in hand class at a TB show a few weeks ago. My first ever, mostly on a whim. It's like a HB class. I saw handlers turned out in everything from their show clothes (mostly those who were...

    They do work.

    But I agree about a lot of them ones who need them are horses that are going to eat and eat no matter what. My horse and his neighbor are a nice example of this. My horse doesn't...

    Ground manners! Yes!!! One question I used to always ask when I was helping ammies or kids find horses was "can I trust this horse not to kill my client if they are in the barn alone with it?" For...

    Another thing to keep in mind with an aging horse is your vet fund and what you are willing to do/spend. My feelings are vastly different for my two guys. My vet, my mom (my emergency contact for all...

    Yes, LE, I am very lucky to have such an easy horse. I don't even have to muzzle or dry lot him. The most I have to concern myself with is that he gets enough forage in the winter, as hay is a wee...

    I have a retired horse who is 29. He "worked" for a living into his early 20s (probably could have gone longer, but I ran out of suitable riders). He has been retired ever since.

    He is a man of...

    Make sure he can jump a ditch, cross water, jump on and off a bank. He doesn't have to be terribly sophisticated jumping, but a solid introduction to those things should make him a bit more...

    When I say "you can only jump so many logs" I am speaking in terms of a young horse's education and even, to some degree, a new rider's education. I have been around many events on young, green...

    Flowers and plants can be donated or borrowed. That is a cheap, easy way to dress up jumps. I do like an interesting course to look at, especially when we're talking babies....I mean, you can only...

    I agree with the 5-15k range. At least she's not small (as much as I love small horses). A small TB mare is the hardest thing in the world to sell, especially when she's chestnut.
