Patrick Spanton is wonderful with a young hunter. I think his barn is full though.
I jumped ahead of my perfect saint of a horse last November and toppled off and broke my clavicle in 5 places. I have a plate and 9 screws. It still hurts now 8 months later. I did ride 2 months...
I always wanted one but was scared of the pain. Then, I fell off my horse and shattered my collar bone in 6 pieces last November and had to have surgery (plate and pins.) Very painful, so I decided...
Is there an order of go anywhere?
Time Traveler's Wife - Boring!
An Affair to Remember
My father died three days ago. He was 86.
We had a very complicated relationship. Growing up, he was very cold, perpetually angry, and impatient. He was abusive in several ways. He and my mother...
I switched disciplines (ASB to H/J) about 7 years ago. I live in Southern CA but kept my performance Saddlebreds in KY with Donna Moore (and later her daughter Melissa.) The reason for my switch...
I am scheduled for surgery next Wed. I am having it done by a specialist (upper extremity.) He said there would be no way for it to heal correctly without the surgery.

Thanks for all of the responses and input. I am going to see a shoulder ortho specialist for a second opinion. I think surgery is most likely in the cards. Many thanks again!
UPDATE 11/12 - I had surgery a week ago. 6 inch plate and 9 screws. Still hurts quite a bit. Saw dr. today who said no riding until after Xmas. :(

ASBs are not necessarily safer to ride. I rode Saddlebreds for 15 years before switching to h/js and I rode a few really tough ones.
I think going from saddleseat to h/j is harder than the...
Yes, Hillary has jumper riders.
Hillary Ridland, hands down. Excellent training, AMAZING facility, great care. She is honest and fair. I travel 1.5 hours to ride with her even though there are many trainers in my immediate area.

Love this show!
Did Season 2 just start? If so, when is on?
Love it! We are on season 4 and will be done just in time for next week's season premiere!!
I have had my Monacos for over a year and wear them every ride. They are holding up great!
I second this. Hillary is wonderful!
She is in San Juan Capistrano @ the Blenheim horse park. No longer in Malibu however.
I bought mine on ebay brand new for $450 (square toe.) While I haven't had them all that long, it seems to me that the calf is way sturdier than everyone had said. It feels like the inside of a...
