    I was killing myself trying to remember where I'd hear this unique name before and I finally figured it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LF6KuQxJQUw. My mare raced against her at Woodbine!

    I bought it - couldn't say no for the price and it seems to be great quality. The billet guard says Michel Robert 2000, I'm starting the google search but would love to hear if that helps with the...

    Is this a Prestige? Which model?

    I'm looking at buying a saddle. It has a green badge and a white strip over the cantle. The back of the cantle is stamped "Appaloosa Italy". The seller is marketing it as a Prestige.

    I understand...

    I automatically assumed I wouldn't be able to afford a trainer to help me but maybe it wouldn't be that many sessions. Worth a look, for sure.

    Target training and barrels/poles are great ideas!...
  7. Trailer training without a trailer?

    I'm not in a position to buy a trailer. I board, but none of the other boarders have a trailer. The boarding barn's trailer isn't available for me to practice loading with my mare (I did ask but was...

    That's all that matters, really.

    However, someone in my family has her MLIS and is working for the government. She loves her job but it's been very unstable because of the recession and she...

    Agreed. For what it's worth, it does belong to me and it does fit my mare, although it's a little small for my butt since my weight gain.

    This is what I was thinking. Or God forbid something went wrong with the shot or the horse got loose or panicked and injured itself; I don't know his owner at all and have no idea if she's overly...
  12. WWYD? Vet asks for help holding someone else's horse

    I was put in a very uncomfortable spot the other day. I was just leaving the barn, and a guy I don't know pulls up in a truck. He says he's boarder X's vet and asked if I would be able to help hold...

    I did spend some time chatting with our local tack shop owner. She's ridden with him before and said he was very kind and understanding, but challenged her. She also said there was one person in...

    So true, good reminder!

    Thanks everyone! I'm feeling a little less terrified and a little more excited. I'll get out the saddle soap and give my dressage saddle a good cleaning :-) it's an old...
  15. Starting lessons with BNT - advice and reassurance?

    I recently moved to a new town and started boarding at a beautiful and very conveniently located barn. I love it here! The owner is a a pretty BN dressage trainer. I have no dressage experience...

    Sometimes people just get something into their heads and can't let it go. I once had a cab driver try to convince me that Secretariat was female. He was so insistent I started doubting myself!

    We used to play a game in our lessons with poles laid out in a loose course shape. Each rider gets to pick their own pattern as long as they go over all the poles and the fastest rider wins. You...

    Yes please, me too. My mare is still very green, so we need to work on a little bit of everything. First on the list is her trot to canter transition.

    My goal is to ride 4 days a week. Now it's...

    Last night I found the plug under the oven. I needed a coat hanger to fish it out but at least I found it!

    Did she keep storing things there after she knew you were wise to her?
  21. The case of the missing bathtub plug

    I was going to have a bath this evening, I got all robed up and ready to go and then couldn't find the plug! I've seen Mr. Moo playing with it before, and always promptly put it away where he...

    Both kitties are out cold napping on the bed with me! Moo is in the carrier because he can't contain himself otherwise but he did settle down and now he looks pretty happy. Pictures to come!

    Claudia has been renamed Molly because I find Claudia a bit of a mouthful for such a little kitty.

    Despite my best efforts, Molly has escaped from her safe room a few times. She's very curious and...
