The "bigger is better" craze seems to have died out a few years ago in this area.
One of the contributing factors might be the really big horses seem harder to keep sound.
Have you spoken with First Field Farm, Carolyn Biava in Cerritos yet? They aren't too far from your home, show at the level you are looking for, and have flexible evening hours if I remember...
There are several Popeye K offspring at my barn and they are all tall and gorgeous. The oldest is I think 4 now and he's 17 hands. Nice horses.
Yep, like dogbluehose's experience, my horse also wasn't too terrified. She leapt to the end of the reins and stood there with her eyes bugged out for a moment, then got over it. The other horse in...
After two freak riding accidents last year, the spouse told me I'd have to quit if I hurt myself again. I got a Point Two air vest and wear it every ride, except for in the show ring. It's...
My tops just arrived, I'm thrilled with how nice they are - thanks for the link! Can't beat that price.
Expensive product that basically did nothing noticeable for my horses. It was healthier and easier to hang hay nets filled with orchard grass and keep them busy and happy with a little food in their...
Valencia Sport Saddlery in Lakeview Terrace is also pretty nice.
That's the net I have. My horse used and abused it for a year and it's still in great shape. Good product.
He's really cute!
Tell your doctor about your problem and ask for Xanax or something similar.
The Lady Speed Air fits quite differently from the regular Speed Air. Try one on before you give up on them. Love the vents and the Lady Speed Air's slightly larger visor.
I agree with ladyj.
Putting the time and money into show miles would be a much better investment. As a buyer, a show record would interest me, a "meh" registry not so much.
The Las Palomas riding ring closed. Not fancy, but better than nothing for those with horses living around the ring. At least the trail at the end of that street still allows horses.
My longtime brave, bombproof horse started becoming spooky and reactive. Turned out his back hurt - he had severe kissing spines. Get a vet exam.
One of the riding arenas up the street from me just closed. It's probably been there since the 1970s. So sad.
That was my experience, too - saw no benefit
Personally, I don't care that much about conformation shots. I'd rather see a short video of the horse being ridden at all three gaits in both directions - that shows what's really important
Wow, he is gorgeous! Enjoy :)
We bought two of them along with their matching footrests because they are comfy and lightweight. The chairs are dragged across the living room and parked in front of the TV when we watch movies....
Whew. My Bette & Court shirts arrived and they are HUGE. At least 3 inches bigger around the midsection than the Tailored Sportsman. Order a size down if you want them to be more form-fitting.
I spritz them with Windex or any other handy ammonia-based cleaner. Clean and easy to wipe up, too.
No name ideas, but he is absolutely adorable!
Super cute shirt, thanks for recommending! I just ordered one.
