    I trill with my tongue, since I can't whistle either. My horses all come when I do it. I give horse cookies, a scratch or pat, then sometimes leave them alone. When I am going to ride I mix up the...

    Check out Kentucky Back Country Horsemen. I ride with BCH in my state, and just quickly checked and there are several units in Kentucky. It's a good place to start.

    Saw in several years ago on my daughter's college graduation Mother/Daughter celebratory trip to NYC. Loved it. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll hum those tunes for forever.

    Lucky you!

    Whenever I walk into the barn to clean stalls I call out "housekeeping!" and they all mosey out of their stalls to their attached runs.

    So I'm sure that's what they think I'm called...that, and...

    I have Paints, and showed regionally in all-around amateur classes at APHA shows. I'd say the average amount spent by the riders with my trainer was $35K, with a couple paying $50K and one who...

    Take two Advil before you ride. It will help after you're done. After I took a couple of years off I found a trainer and went for my first lesson with her. I remember standing at the bottom of my...

    I bought a load of bad hay from a new person, and when I called to complain I was basically told "too bad". I ended up selling it as cow hay, for about a third of what I'd paid.

    I'd checked...

    What do you think they'll do with Kalinda? I keep thinking Bishop will have her "disappear"...or Witness Protection?

    I had one. It didn't hurt to have it inserted, but I got pregnant anyway, which was a surprise, to say the least.

    9 months later, a bouncing baby boy.

    I watched it and liked it. I'll give it another episode or two to see if it hooks me. I agree that it seemed poorly lit. I did enjoy a different point of view on that time in history. The Henry...

    My son is 37, started riding at age 9. He adored his first riding instructor, still keeps in touch with her, and speaks so fondly of her. She was, above all else, positive! He holds her barn...

    I can completely relate. I hate the test rides when horse shopping. It makes me anxious as well, and overly worried about looking incompetent, which is ridiculous because I am a competent,...

    I just did a basement bath, which was tiny and shoddily built, so it had to be completely gutted. We moved one wall out about three feet and put in a nice tile shower, tile floors, 48 inch cherry...

    I agree with the above...I'd run away from a NQR horse. There are too many out there who are sound. And we all know that can change in a heartbeat.

    Plus, I've been there, done that -- have one...
