    Looking at some of the other pictures, especially the one in her pasture, she doesn't look back at the knee there. They are much brighter pics so easier to see detail. She's very pretty by the way.

    On a similar note, is it true when there is a tie in certain classes, that they count the number of braids and the geldings are to have 27 and mares 26? I used to work for someone who insisted on at...

    I have one that I event with. She's 14.2 and built like a brick house; definitely some draft in her somewhere. We are going novice and enjoying ourselves, she loves the jumping not so much...

    The craziest one we had was when we had an appy mare for sale and the buyer said she be there at 2:00 and didn't show until 11:30 at night! :confused: Then she said she had no money on her and did...

    He looks great and looks like he'll be tons of fun to ride. I like the Cavallo boots - they are super easy to put on, don't chafe, and don't come off. However, I hear lots of good things about the...

    carrots for the pony, cold beer for me.

    I always give my horse "post-ride treats" just like my dogs get an "after school treat" not that they or I are in school, it's just what we call them.

    I do believe there is a hunt up in Ferndale as well but I think it's more of a casual group and not a formal hunt. I always wanted to go too; I think it would be a blast. I know Woodbrook uses the...

    I dig the bagpipes :D
    I believe the sandwich case and flask are pretty expensive if you buy them new and the hunt folks who like to stick to tradition use them still. Did you see the stirrup cups...

    Do you know if they have school horses? I'm not in the upper levels myself.

    My horses live outside 24x7, however, they each have their own separate sacrifice paddocks and either a run-in shed, a stall, or one has just a roof. They can go in and out as they want and as a...

    I'm going to be visiting the parental units in September who live in SW Mass and would be interested in taking a lesson while there. Anyone know the name of a good trainer that is within a...

    I always sit a few strides out from XC fences because I think it steadies her before the fence, otherwise I'm out of the saddle between jumps.

    I went to PHC back in 1979. I probably won't be able to make the reunion though I think about that place often. It's what me interested in eventing.

    Lucky you! I agree, the Trail-et New Yorker is the holy grail of trailering. Wish I had one.

    Okay, I'll play:

    The injury when I was 14 is the earliest I remember - horse reared unexpectedly and I slid off the back and broke my wrist.

    Several injury free years followed until I was...

    My thoughts exactly. I have several friends with mules and they most definitely are not horses. One friend tried to treat and ride her mule like a horse and got hurt doing it - he bucked her off...

    Carry extra water and food for you. When you get saddle bags, you'll want to have water and some extra food take up permanent residence in there. Beef jerky is good as it lasts forever; granola...

    Thanks for all the great responses. I feel much better now. I've been ponying her on trails for a while and she is definitely not afraid of anything out there. In fact, she was trying to lead and...

    Chehalis is a great place for your first event. The courses are inviting and the atmosphere is welcoming. Also, the dressage and cross country are across a little creek so your horse has to cross a...

    What you are describing is called "ride and tie." Pretty obscure title, never would have guessed. :D

    Favorites are trail riding, eventing, and combined driving. Least faves are TWH big lick,...

    Cute cute cute. He looks almost identical to my eventing mustang. In fact, I've been asked if she was a cob cross. My girl's barn name is Zephyr and her show name is Lock and Load. It suits her....

    My latest project is a 3 year old mustang filly. She is built more like a small TB than your more traditional mustang with a longer neck, long legs, long back, small head. However, she is only...
