    Nothing toasts my buns more than people who think horse professionals should do the job out of love or because "it's fun" (an actual quote from an old client of my former boss' who squealed when he...

    I definitely wouldn't wait until you get there to buy something waterproof. If you don't own something comfortable for lots of walking and waterproof, go get something now. Definitely wouldn't do...

    It really depends on the horse.

    One of mine couldn't care less. He barely tolerates a mask. The other one will not step foot outside his shed in the summer before dark if he isn't in fall battle...

    Life may not be a game, but it is certainly something nicer than how a lot of you describe it...saying it is something to endure makes you sound like my Calvinist grandparents, who thought life was...

    You have to act on the "they might be cool to hang out with." That's the only way to do it. And, yeah, it can be awkward as hell, and they might be feeling just as weird and awkward as you...but...

    Why? Obviously, sending them to a poor, crime ridden neighborhood wouldn't be a very good idea (of course, sending city kids up some holler where the sun don't shine is also probably not so great,...

    The Wilkers "Maximum Contact Pad" in the Prix shape fits my extra high, extra forward County Conquest really, really well.

    I had pads made by Toklat a few years ago and was very unhappy with the...

    Horses absolutey, positively do make mistakes and I am (thankfully) living proof of that. Toby made a mistake, misjudged his distance, got distracted at the fence we fell at. Thankfully, I had video...

    Well, I think the stocking up would go away with 20 minutes of exercise, boots, polos, or bare legs. It's never seemed to matter.

    But if a horse is prone to stocking up, it isn't great for them to...

    Can't imagine anywhere in Lexington where you'd have a safety issue. It's hardly the ghetto!

    My FAVORITE cheap hotel are Microtels. I've stayed in a few in a variety of places. They are neat and...

    Since this is already along the lines of what I was about to ask, are there people who would rent an apartment or do an Air B&B type deal for the weekend?

    I have a blog (linked in my sig). It started out as a bit of everything. But morphed into strongly horse and competition centric. I've fallen out of the habit of keeping up with it, mostly because I...

    I do believe there are a few websites out there that are easy to look at it and don't get into any commentary. Mostly voting records and such. Some may have quotes from the candidate that might show...

    Most of the horses I've known who have gotten cast only do it once. Most horses are smarter than that mare I mentioned! I also had a friend who's horse would usually get cast within the firs few...

    Honestly, a 3' hunter probably isn't putting enough strain on their legs to warrant too much after care unless there is an old issue. My eventers didn't typically see ice or bandages until prelim...

    Some horses are very sensible and once they realize they are stuck stay quiet and wait for help. I prefer them to the ones that freak out, as the freakers are the ones who are more likely to hurt...

    Just keep an eye on her and make sure she's not anything more than a little stiff. Without knowing how long she was stuck, I would be keeping an eye out for colicky issues. The horses I've had get...

    Stay away from the Horseman's One Step. It is horrible for tack.

    I prefer a good conditioning tack soap. I use Higher Standards (lots of reviews on it over on the eventing forum. Look for threads...

    Fwiw, I've had quite a few horses that really matured in their bodies in the 7-9 age range. They were string beans, even with lots of good dressage and hill work, then suddenly they just beefed up....

    This is my rule, too! If they don't fit in my 75" rugs and my cob sized bridles, then no thanks.

    I mi did have one guy who was just shy of 16.2 when I sent him packing that easily fit those...

    I have a Tory breast girth that was not pricey that I have used the crap out of for a few years now. With the exception of some rust on the rings (which you can't see anyway) it is lovely and rugged....

    This is an excellent point! I am short, with a short leg, but a ridiculously long femur. What length I have in my leg is all between my hip and my knee. My knees pop over most of my friends' flaps,...
