Yes! That's my trainer, Julue Congleton's, barn. It is an eventing barn with lessons and boarding. No, no website, but there is a FB page with contact info. PM me if I can answer any questions :)
If it is chilly when your event takes place, a bonfire and warm comfort food (spaghetti or lasagna works) are much appreciated!
Search for Bartville here on COTH. Definitely not online as they are Amish, but they have a nice catalogue and do lovely work for a very reasonable price.
Have you talked to anyone at Bartville Harness?
You might contact someone at Trumbull Mountain Tack Shop. They are BC dealers and should have someone in the know. Good luck finding something!
Try joining the English Tack Trader group on Facebook! I've managed to sell a bunch of stuff (including a saddle) on there. While it is a tad disorganized, your add will be seen by oodles of folks....
Jenn O'Neil (Lexington) would also be a good contact.
If you aren't choked up reading that, you just aren't an eventer ;) Congratulations to you both!!!
When my vet was out, he said to watch for laminitis. Late this afternoon I pulled my horse out for my farrier and he was 95% sound (was maybe 70% this morning). My farrier said that in talking to...
My farrier is one of the more respected farriers in the Lexington area. I'm wondering if there isn't something more going on. At any rate, he's been called to come back out to take a look. My...
I have had my young horse on McCauley Bros. rice bran oil and SmartShine Ultra over the winter. Even when he is filthy dirty, he still shines! I've never had one shed out as easily nor look so good...
My 4 year-old thoroughbred had his feet trimmed last Wednesday. When I brought him in Thursday morning, he appeared to be very stiff on the front end when turning on our paved aisleway. The...
I checked out Southern Stars stirrup leathers at Rolex (bought a bridle & reins from them which I love!). The next time I'm in the market, I will get theirs. They ship very quickly from Australia.
We installed industrial ceiling fans in our barn over our stalls which seemed like a good idea at the time. Unfortunately, the window at the north end of the barn doesn't open (we have a hay loft...
Ouch!!! I had never considered the possibility of a lien from a supplier. An attorney sounds like a wise move. What a pain :(
After xc sounds good now, but having hosted a BBQ for COTH one year at our farm, no one comes because they are all too tired. Friday night usually works out better.
Hey Mag, check out their Equinox 365 program which offers 20% off SmartBugOff Ultra and SmartShine Ultra (they rotate- SBU in the summer months, SSU in the winter). I was considering it for Blue,...
Tandoor :) It's just off Todd's Road and Man O'War, near Hamburg. The Atomic Cafe near downtown Lexington has terrific Caribbean fare.
Awesome! Back when we first had our horses at home and before I had a sitter lined up, we would leave our geldings there when we were out of town. They are the nicest people!!
The restaurants in Midway are excellent as well!
I would be in favor of joining in! If we could all meet either at the KHP or someplace nearby, that would be great.
Try Saddles and Sheets in Midway (~15 min from the KHP) http://www.saddlesandsheets.com/ They are a great place to short-term board.
Please check the FAQs sticky at the top of the eventing forum. You'll find all kinds of good advice there :)
Not to hijack too much, but does anyone make custom dyed padded leather browbands?
Do you need an RV site? If so, Whispering Hills http://www.whisperinghillsrv.com is just up the road and from what I've seen, is very nice. It might be worth looking into.
