    The article said she hopped right up and walked around and as a previous poster pointed out, she was in the schooling area so I bet no one realized that she was injured. I've gotten back on and...

    you don't need a code for USEF, if you have a smartpak account you can just call them and ask them to add your USEF # to your account and they'll automatically take 5% off pretty much everything you...

    Just wanted to add that I really only have the very vaguest notion of what it costs to keep a horse and train with the barns I recommended. My recommendations were purely based on the OPs original...

    Oh yes, fairharbour is a good recommendation. If that isn't too far you may also want to check out Newbury farm in Littleton and winter street farm in concord (I know Newbury has adults, not sure...

    At my barn we use a google calendar so everyone can see what lessons are going on. It shows once an hour is booked, but not sure it could be used to show availability. It is free though, which is...

    Here is my two cents fwiw. 1) speak to the head trainer or whomever is in charge with bs meter on high alert. 2) not all h/j programs drug. A lot do, but definitely not all. If you confirm or have...

    I agree, try blending first. To blend I use the clippers in the direction of the hair growth rather than against. I think KateKat is describing the same thing.
  17. Exercises to improve my hand position? (too low, reins too long)

    I saw a recent video of myself and my hands are just ridiculous- too low, reins too long, ending up with hands in lap. My horse is recovering from an injury, so as long as we're working on the flat I...
