Tegotong - I have had some great lessons with Lynda Ramsey from Mission Creek Ranch. Was down there about a month ago with my young horse.
I have used a BOT wrist brace for myself when my wrist hurt so bad I thought I broke it. Doctor says arthritis. Wore the brace for about 2 weeks and my wrist is great even months later.
There is a good picture on pinterest that shows a jump like this (without the saplings) and has a log over it. Can't seem to post link. It has two rails on the different height logs. Search xc jumps
Caitlin1031 - is this Clinic in Alberta? If so, helmet, breeches, gloves, spurs, boots, xc vest for you. Horse needs xc boots, crop, bridle with snaffle bit. These clinics are made for people to...
I don't like shavings in the trailer. Hubby wanted then when he hauled but wet shavings get stuck between the mats and corroded the floor. Pee runs out and they wear shipping boots on long hauls.
Hosspuller - can you recommend brand names? I need to get a new one as well. I've never heard of a stump jumper. Currently waiting on new clutch plates so I can use mine John Deere rotary cutter...
If I am feeling irritated like it sounds you are (menopause - not so much fun), I avoid the horses. I know that something will just make it a difficult day and it is not fair to the horse. If I'm...
I stop just above the hock as usually it gets pretty dirty too.
Equine Services in Calgary is fantastic. We live in Golden, BC and trailer there for all our horses. 403-242-1913.
Rubygirl - I was hoping for more around the Calgary area. I'm 45 minutes west of Lake Louise.
Rubygirl - Can you point me towards these schooling shows?
Tobiano pattern. White crosses the top line and it has white legs. Also has a solid head with a stripe. Nice pattern but lots of white to keep clean.
We have had many problems with loose dogs. And unfortunately although I can threaten to sss, I just can't do that to the dog. Lucky, I don't shoot as I'd rather shoot the damn owner.
I have gone...
Our orphan is 5 this year. Cinder lost her dam when she was 5 days old. I raised her on a bottle for 4 months. From the second day, she had an open mare that babysat her. They bonded well and the...
I have been to the same clinic several times. Twice was ignored by the clinician. I requested not to have her by saying. I prefer A. Do not want to ride with F. I was called when F was the only...
I also recommend Emerald Lake. Has a nice around two hour hike on very easy terrain. Usually tourists stay right by the hotel but it is much quieter on the trail.
Does she not know where he went?
Eleanor = I googled Bubba Style and Spruce Meadows and found the results. I know the lady that showed him there. She is on facebook.
We have 3 that service 5 pastures. I would never be without again. A friend has the outdoor ones in her barn and each one serves 2 stalls. Makes life so much easier as we get 6 months of winter...
Any update yet?
I find it easiest to have extra items in the trailer such as buckets, brushes, fly spray, etc. that live in the trailer. That way I don't forget something and the only things I have to pack are...
We have our tie rails placed behind the posts and bolted. That way if they pull on it, they are pulling the rail into the posts.
We are using 3 x 3 x 8 foot bales. Our tractor can lift them but we feed them by the flake. You could set them outside the pen, tarp them and feed by the individual flakes.
Jealoushe: I sent you a Pm.
Totally off topic - but I checked out your blog. Love the photos and your heelers. I grew up in Kingston and your farm reminds me of riding there. We have heelers as well but now I live in BC.
