    It has been 15 years since I lived there (which makes me feel sad and old), but many people in my junior barn got their custom chaps there. The leather was a tad thicker than my Journeyman, but...

    I understand the point of having sharps containers around - I guess I should have specified that they were pretty full. Granted, it was week 5, so it was likely a month's worth of accumulation. I...

    I remember when I was showing as a junior/recently aged out amateur, I got tested a number of times. Perhaps because I was showing in more interesting divisions than I am now? In any case, I...

    Rolex is a 4* as you noted, which means it is FEI. That whole situation came to pass because of a mare that had competed through the 2* level and then was shown by Kelley Farmer as a 1st year.

    I have a 1998 Hadfields bridle and at the time, there were no oiling rules that came with it. I have used Hydrophane on it as needed since then and glycerine soap the rest of the time. The padding...

    I am curious of who the TBs were? I could only find two but I was just cross-referencing the money won rankings list. The research is much appreciated. 11 is a mature pre-green!

    Your numbers seem very optimistic to me, mostly because there is no vet line item :). My concern would be at the local show level in your area, how much of a market is there for a still relatively...

    I know there are awards this year for highest placing TB, QH and American-bred horses. Does anyone know how many there are of each? I found the order of go but nothing with "bio" type information.

    To me, the biggest reason this sort of job has always scared me is the lack of future opportunity. Of course we all want to be around horses all day, but will this position let you afford your own...

    I think Winter Street travels almost as much as Newbury these days, although their barn manager stays home to teach and is wonderful. Being truly full care they are the most expensive of the bunch...

    HITS Saugerties had both a 2'6 and a 3' TB section, though I wouldn't be surprised if they were judged together. I think 3' is a fine height for the division - it isn't necessarily for really green...

    It is a little north of true metro west, but I am very happy at Midnight Moon Stables in Chelmsford. Great care, beautiful Morton barn with heated indoor and good turnout. Right now we have a small...

    My very lazy 5 year old TB is in a similar place, although we have less drama around the changes. He will reliably switch up front and behind is a question of how much I and he are doing correctly. ...

    When I saw the hotel pricing, I thought it *included* two tickets and was planning to book the trip. When I realized that spending $500 merely gave me the right to buy tickets, I immediately back...

    I don't find the buckles to be any easier to deal with than the hooks ends, and I hate the way the buckles look. If you are really doing a lot of bit changes, the clip bridles are the best.

    I really hope you love her, but gosh that video made me think she is green... And strong... And doesn't have a lead change. There is a lot of finishing to be done and it will take some real time to...

    Different barns work in different ways. I have never heard of a client being billed for the cost of anyone else's horse being shipped.

    There are some full service barns that charge a flat...

    Not in the Northeast we don't! In any case, I still vote to sit on her first.

    If you are 53 then no Big Eq for you! There are mostly 3' adult eq classes and a very few at 3'3. I am sure she would be more than capable but unless you ride her, you don't know if it's a match. ...

    Have you ridden the horse? I know there are plenty of people who buy sight unseen, but for that money, you might as well spend a little bit more and find out if you like riding it or not.

    Shipping in the night before is still worthwhile even if you can't school over the fences. You can have a really productive flat ride and make sure he is on your aids, and get up super, super early...

    No. It is so funny to see barn friends showered, wearing normal clothes and makeup. It is like meeting new people!
