    The flys around here (SE PA) seem to have developed resistance to permethrin. I could just as well use water.

    I use Pyranha or Endure (oil based seem to work better) and if I'm going on a hack I...

    With my two I found the opposite to be true. I physically couldn't pinch with my knee on the narrow guy so my leg was more stable on him.

    Thanks. That's what I was afraid of. Well, I guess I will just have to go by myself and leave the baby horse at home.

    AEC question--when do they run advanced?

    Because, you know, I will be in that division :lol:. No, trying to figure out when my trainer will be back as we are contemplating a labor day horse trial.

    Thanks!

    We take the PA turnpike to Shippensburg, then hop across to 81. My family is in TN, so we have done this many many times. Always better than 95.

    I missed a fence at my last horse trial (as I described in the mid-season update thread). I was really bummed because it was our first go novice and my horse was jumping so well. Fortunately we...

    My horse is similar; he is lacking in confidence and will occasionally run out if I don't give him a confident ride. We started BN last year and had 4 runs without a stop. This year he had a run-out...

    I think unless you do dressage there is no reason to do square corners. The person who built my ring said the only thing (non-dressage) he has seen them used for is storing jumps.
  14. Do you like the "built in" canvas hay bags in horse trailers?

    I'm upgrading my horse trailer (yay!) and the new (to me) one has the canvas hay bags. My first trailer had these and I took them out and never used them (they were kind of old and worn). But one of...

    Round up and then rake it once or twice a week. The only time I have ever had any weeds in my ring was when my tractor was broken.

    True enough. Although his Rolex round was not pretty. Well, I'm doing a clinic with him next week-I will ask him if it was ugly and gasping or just rubs:lol:.

    This was the case with my horse. We worked on getting the right canter at 2'3" to 2'6" so by the time we started jumping higher it was much easier. He still will sometimes get flat and rushy at a...

    I think brown dressage saddles have an "eventer-y" feel; to me they evoke that whole independent-minded, anti-hunter "everyone looks the same theme". Plus some horses just can't wear black :lol:.

    Yes, the site is often down. I use to not be able to get it to work in chrome, but that has been better this year. Thanks OFH for the link--that will be useful.
