    I didn't vote, because the options make it sound like the barn vet is mandatory.

    I have a 7 stall barn, but only keep 6 horses. 2-3 are usually boarders. I do have my vet practice and my...

    For lessons that are 10 minutes down the road, the lessons are about 45 minutes each, if I take two horses, there is a lesson in between my two, so it is about 3 hours. When the lesson is an hour...

    That was only the final few in the main stadium. There was a XC course. I have a few pics and my husband has a few video clips...I think it is Clark going through the Rolex water complex.

    Stalls that have gaps in the mats are a royal PITA to clean IMO. So a 10x12 stall will take 5 mats, and yes a 12x12 is 6. Stone dust isn't cheap, but I will say if you have some extra stalls, the...

    I recently got a pair of Konigs. I did the same with them as I have done with my Dehners. Condition the inside with Vogel's boot cream (I will cry when my last bit is gone, they don't seem to make...

    Good for you, taking one on from the auction. I will say that I don't really think he is too thin, perhaps needs some more topline muscles, but given that I'm always struggling with chubby horses, I...
  8. USEF iPad Rule Book App...charges to use the rule book

    I was looking at the USEF Rule book online, you know, the one that is free? Well, they have this little "download the free iPad app" button, and I figure, why not?

    Oh, because only the Bylaws of...

    Ok, I mis-read that part.

    I agree, and as Janet (an actual licensed TD) has clarified, quite clearly, I have nothing to add.

    I am pretty sure I did not say anything about fair or not fair in my post about the rules being convoluted. I did not approve of my friend's feeling that the rules did not apply to her.

    The full...

    I have a friend who shows as an amateur and always has, and would give lessons to boarders. She rationalized it because she was not very good(her description, not mine), and in our area, you are...

    I love your videos. I enjoy the creativity and appreciate the effort you put into producing them.

    Off to go watch this one and do a hashtag search for pictures.

    The person who says to take your helmet when you try on sunglasses is right! And if you use a different helmet for showing, test that one out too!

    I love my Oakley sunglasses, but I realized this...

    Kate's wanting Paddy around (what a gut-wrenching loss that was) has me post that I was thinking that ponying could work? Is Toby an OTTB? Does he pony? Of course, being ponied feels so odd.

    IIRC that black gunk that needs to be scraped off with fingernails, or a kitchen scrubber, those are called "dirt jockeys" or some other modifier in front of "jockey".

    Anyway, even with the HSF...

    I had a BC Quantum X. I am embarrassed to admit that I did not notice it was assembled crooked, until I'd had it several months and it started to wobble, I think the new flocking sometimes makes it...

    I've been buying my horses young, too young perhaps, since I got my second horse as an adult. She was at the Frying Park Auction in 1993 and I "needed" a second horse as I'd moved to my own farm. ...

    Not unreasonable, but some sort of "one cancellation in under 24 hours will be allowed within every 20 lesson block" policy.

    That way, if they are a good customer, who takes tons of lessons, they...

    I tried a lovely Passier model that had a flat seat. It was a great sales price and I liked it, but I did not like how it settled onto my wide mare's back.

    I grew up riding bareback and my first...

    Sadly they have eliminated that discount. It used to be effectively a $5 per year discount if you joined for three years at 150. No more. I had to renew and it was 165 for three years. I still...
