    I love the Underarmour v necks (and I rode in them before smartpak picked them up!)

    They stayed really cool even on humid 90 degree days in Florida last year and they aren't expensive ($20ish)....

    I guess I'm the only one who thinks drug testing at an unrated show is kind of overkill?

    First off, for me the big draw of showing unrated is to avoid all the extra charges and fees USEF tacks...

    I have been riding a pony who isn't quite as fit as I would like and jumps the best the fresher he is. Despite being green he is bold so he flats enough to warm up, schools one change, and then walks...

    The simple answer is: there really isn't anything that is too tall. I hate this question because I'm 5'1'' and grew up hearing all about horses that were too big for me. The bottom line is if you...

    They come out with new colors every year, so they are probably trying to clear out colors to make way for the new inventory.

    But then you also don't have to factor in getting out of a lease on a house in your decision to leave your job. Most people I know in the industry at the barn manager/assistant trainer level...

    One of the activities I have found to have the best fun to money ratio is hunter pacing. I pay around $35, and get hours and miles of riding and jumping with friends.

    I made courses using a basic paint program on my mac. I would assume Paint would do the same thing. I just needed a line tool and numbers to label them. They were simple but looked neat and clean.

    Unwatchable feed... I tuned in just long enough to hear Mark Leone say how athletic Royce is only for Debbie Stepnens to immediately comment on how yet the horse never goes clear. Really?

    1) You can find something similar for much less than that horse's asking price. I've seen thoroughbreds with comparable experience go for half that.
