    Looks fine to me. My 'little old lady' horse is a 14h quarter horse mare, and I am 5'7", and it works just fine for me. And there are a couple of 6' cowboys who would happily take her off my hands...

    I guess I'm just not that judgmental. I ride with the helmetless all the time, they are in the majority in these parts, and would care for them as I would for someone wearing a helmet in the event...

    Actually, given the suicidal nature of horses and their ability to foist that nature upon us without notice, I don't think older versus younger poses any more risk for lameness. First, in my...

    In my experience, the only reason horses don't learn to cope with separation is our lack of consistency and resolve. I'd go with hot wire, tying with a mat as suggested, and let them learn that the...
