    It sounds like, unfortunately, nothing lasts except for the super high end. My Ariats are comfy, I just get sick of replacing them, but I know the exact size that fits and will be broken in...
  2. Paddock boots that last longer than Ariats?

    I've been buying Ariats for years but my last three pairs have barely lasted longer than 1-1.5 years. They dry rot on the side. Well, I'm due for yet ANOTHER pair, and before I throw another $120...

    As someone who worked her way through school in a barn giving lessons and caring for school horses, the number one thing I can say is to respect the employees requests for small days off or vacation...

    Ask yourself: why do you want a young Ottb?

    They are NOT the horse for everyone. A month really isn't a long time for a racehorse to come down. Has he not been turned out since he raced? For...

    In the short answer, no. We couldn't get TNT starting about a year ago :(. I switched to triple crown grass bagged forage but he didn't like it as well. Went through several brands of alfalfa...

    There are tons of networking groups and rescues nationwide that are helping find ottb homes. Now, more than ever, it's becoming trendy to "save" an ottb and retrain! (I use the word save tongue in...

    I taught lessons for several years and there are always going to be kids (and adults!!!) Like this. Agree with what others have said: they may not show or progress fast, but as long as they are...

    Moved both of my ottbs to 24/7 pasture board a year ago and they've never been happier or looked better. One is almost 25 and the other is 6. They are turned out in 1+ acre paddock together with...

    Hello! My mom got me higher standards for my birthday and I've been using it on my existing tack- question: do you recommend using it on a brand spanking new saddle.

    Might want to check out smith worthington. They have lots of models and flap options. They're also wool flocked and will fit the horse based on wither tracings. First fit is free with saddle and...

    Generally 4-5 just because I like to ride and its a good unwind, but have no problem leaving them for a weekend (or week) while I'm on vacation. I moved to a more expensive barn for this very...

    If she lives somewhere where a snake with Michigan in its name lives, she doesn't have copperheads or cotton mouths. I was a field biologist for years in the south and literally tripped over cotton...

    Well, they had multiple people posting that they were avaliable for fosters/help. Now they have people on board in case of emergencies. I swear, horse people will find a reason to complain about...

    Your current place sounds like a disaster. Like, what are the perks of STAYING? I would also consider trying to find a small, private stable to board at... Probably cheaper, less rules, better care....

    Are you people really b*tching that a non-profit group is trying to be PROACTIVE about horse rehoming in the event that trainers or owners DO need to get rid of some horses? Better than have 200 in...

    My mare is by truluck as well (as was one of the Rolex horses). I've had offers to do a breeding lease on my mare, but I've been having too much fun to breed her! :). I've also marketed several OTTB...

    Tips for teaching a strong "whoa!"

    I want my OTTB to learn a western whoa. She stops easily enough when I'm on her back, but it's this always creeping, sneaking "whoa" - same on lunge line. She slows, then walks, then stops. at the...
