    OP, I feel your pain. I wear a sz 5 shoe. Anything other than custom is going to be a compromise, either in foot size or calf hight. If I have to buy 5 1/2, I use an insole and thick socks. With...

    I have had excellent luck ground driving greenies on trails. However, they were all completely solid with the whole exercise *before* I left confined space, first a round pen, and then the arena. ...

    No dressage rider here, but doesn't the horse have to be trained to the level the full bridle is called for? The ability to go with that much collection and impulsion takes hours and hours to...

    In my case, the auto release was a result of drilling (and drilling!) through gymnastics without my irons, my reins knotted at my horse's neck, and my hands held out, or at my hips. As your base...

    The potential to get more bang for your buck can sure make you sweat, can't it?

    Why can't the horse be flexed in a couple of weeks? If all is well, PPE on. If not, back to horse shopping. Maybe...

    What concentrate/grain are you feeding? The Horseshine should be doing the job for his coat. Does your grain have an excellent mineral package? If he isn't getting vitamins and minerals like he...

    Here is my navicular horse story.

    I bought a horse years ago with terrible navicular rads. When I bought him he was a sound 4yo, OTTB. The changes had been found during a previous PPE for...

    You need to figure out how many hours of sunlight you have on your bed location. Then find out your average number of frost free days. That will tell you what and when to plant.

    I can't go this year and this thread is killing me!

    The beer proofed in bourbon barrels is absolutely the best-somebody please drink some for me, okay?

    The rhododendron and laurel are different. Riding through them in full bloom is quite the trail ride. I was at South Mtn. State Park the beginning of the week and the buds on the rhododendron there...

    Suz-anywhere south of Asheville will be an easy place to live. Henderson and Transylvania counties didn't miss much more school than we did down the mountain in Polk Co. DH drives a school bus, so...

    NYE-I am an unapologetic tack snob, and right now, to my horror, I am using an HDR. What's more, I don't have one negative thing to say about it!

    I got it last year when I needed a medium tree,...

    Not to pile on to the poor OP, but I can't imagine anyone not loving my MIL's accent. She grew up in Columbus, GA. When she speaks, magnolias burst into bloom.

    There are motels back up 74 towards Shelby, and all the usual restaurant chains (Applebee's, Chilies) in that direction, too.

    Giardini's (sp?) between Columbus and Mill Spring is a wonderful place...

    OP-right now I am hunting (enjoying and loving to death) a 14h Connamara/Welsh cross pony. She is in my barn because she is a little bit of a sensitive ride, and hates children-she's spun kids off...
