    We still pull manes because nothing braids as well as a pulled mane. And - for most horses - it's a non issue.

    I leased a horse when I was younger from a lovely old lady who hardly ever rode. I...

    WOW! Amazing response, people. Thanks!

    I'll assess what tools I have on hand and give this a whirl this weekend using one of these methods. I'll take before and after photos - as long as no one is...
  3. It pains me to say this, but mane cutting?

    As a die-hard hunter girl, I can't even believe that I'm saying this, but - here it goes.

    I agree with Shorty. If the horse were super talented and priced low because of the neuro issues, maybe there would be a market. I have a horse who is hard to ride. If she could jump the moon, no one...

    I think it might be interesting to horse people, but I'm not sure if I see much of a market outside of CoTH-type folks.

    Calling people who rearrange schedules and make small personal sacrifices...

    I would do the opposite of what you're suggesting. I wouldn't do MORE lead changes at home; I would do ZERO lead changes. I'd stop doing them completely. I think over-schooling lead changes is one of...

    In an unrated division with low fences and no in and outs, adding everywhere won't necessarily keep you out of the ribbons. If there's any way that your horse could have been mistaken for a large...

    You know, sometimes I forget that in addition to all the sniping, backbiting, complaining threads on this board, there are threads like this - threads that show what a great and supportive community...

    This keeps coming back to me. This whole thing is just a *perfect* drugging story. Like, if someone were writing a scene for a movie and they wanted to hammer in the EVILS OF ALL HUNTER TRAINING,...

    Bad horse people do bad things. Bad horse people have ALWAYS done bad things. This isn't any different that it was years ago, nor is it any different than in any other discipline.

    Put a pro up in the stirrups for a few rides and see what happens.

    I also use hydrophane darkening oil on anything I want darker. Note that there is hydrophane oil AND hydrophane darkening oil. Two different products.

    My bull leather Innovation was grippy and felt broken in from day 1.

    Are you positive you're riding in the bull?

    Not least of all because I have never in my life heard anyone use the phrase "relaxation shot."

    I also agree with SidesaddleRider. Even if this *was* an honest-to-god tranq of some sort, this is an example of when it wouldn't bother me very much. (Much like tranqing a horse coming off stall...

    An off-site lease would be a full lease, unless you're sharing the horse with someone else. That would usually entail you paying for all the routine maintenance. Board, farrier, vet for routine...
  18. Family makes last day great for old dog--we should strive for the same for our horses

    Warning: this made me sob, but it reminded me of how powerful it can be to make these sorts of decisions ahead of time - before it becomes an emergency.
