    I would leave the baby under mama, if she's setting quietly.

    ditto this.

    I have one horse in easyboot trails because that's what fit her and fit my price range. Really like those for distance pleasure riding on an unshod horse.

    How long is your driveway?

    It can be mind numbing to go back and forth for the same 1/4 mile but don't underestimate what hillwork can do... especially working on adjustability within the walk...

    I think a suede or satin contrast collar would look loooovely!

    navy piping alone probably wouldn't be enough to tie it together.

    I honestly would never think to complain about my ride times or expect any different.

    There are a ton of variables that go into running and scheduling a show; I guess I've always given show mgmt...

    Walk work can be pretty darn effective. Do you have any dirt roads you can ride on to make things interesting? When my dressage horse is at home we do walk and trot on the dirt/gravel roads (with...

    I love the sense of freedom I feel every time I hitch my truck and trailer, but yes, I still feel extra neurotic when I have my precious cargo behind me.
