    I don't understand why some protection for the horse's hoof which actually damages the hoof wall (shoes, nailed through the hoof wall) is acceptable, but a non-destructive form of protection for the...

    I know Jeremy was torn between enjoying the job and frustration that he had trouble with supporting his own (paying) clients due to time spent as the coach, I'm guessing for less money than he would...

    I think Debbie is now more high profile as a trainer/teacher than ever, and can certainly understand why she is moving on! I hope the work she has done continues to be helpful, and that she can...

    I didn't ride from college into my early 30s because of finances. With a mom to reverse raise (she gets less mature instead of more due to senility!) I knew how I wanted to get back in horses, but...
