    With my horses whoa means stop NOW. If I want them to slow down I hum.

    That "whoa" has saved me a time or two. I don't want it to be taken casually by my horses.

    Four years ago I had this same debate. I decided to go with a puppy because I have young grandchildren and felt it would be a better plan to have the puppy grow up with children, learning acceptable...

    I had a neighbor who had ten horses with different trainers around the country. She called them all by the same name and her husband didn't know. One day he told me I should buy a horse that was her...

    I love Anderson Bean work boots. My other favorites are Lucchese with square toes but they were pricey. Once you figure out the sizing it's easy to buy online and get a good fit. I have a high...

    Yep, for me the solution was to move my show horse back to my trainer's for the winter, and have the other two at home. So much easier, and I ride three days a week in her lovely indoor. Now the...

    I boarded my horses for several years at a stable in the middle of a non horsey suburban neighborhood. One day a mom and two little girls walked up the drive. As they walked into the barn the older...

    I didn't know that a horse had been buried outside of the arena at the stable where I used to board my three horses. This had just happened over the weekend, and I saddled up Monday morning and rode...

    If you have a bad go, you may have 2 minutes to be mad at:

    I brought mine home 9 years ago. I was so excited. The horses were happy and I loved watching them check it all out, trotting the fence line and kicking up their heels. But I couldn't sleep for...

    I bought one of my trail horses sight unseen via the Internet. They had sent me a video of him doing arena work and I wasn't that impressed. I asked for any info or photos of him out of the arena....

    My trainer has it in her barn. I'll ask her tomorrow where she got it.

    I'd buy the trailer. As you said, opportunities like that don't come along that often, if ever. I hate to borrow things.

    I test drove my Ram truck home, made sure it fit in my garage, and hitched my gooseneck trailer to it, too. Drove it around the block, and then unhitched it and took the truck back to buy it.

    So...

    One more thing to consider: I'm sick with the flu today. I crawled out of bed to throw hay for my horses, then wobbled back in the house and into bed. I'll do it again a couple more times today,...

    I agree with stb. I didn't save any money when I bought horse property, but I still love it. I love having my horses on my own little place, but it is a ton of work so you'd better be prepared for...

    I show at Paint shows, and it's the young girls and young women who wear all that makeup. It's jarring to see them in person, to be honest. And so bizarre that they who have youth and beauty going...

    I'm not crazy about the black saddles for some reason. I think because I've seen them come in and go out of style before, while the tan ones are classic. But they are gorgeous on a grey, I will...

    But do remember and realize that you don't have to be dressed like that to do well at breed shows. I don't think most exhibitors believe that, either. I think those that go so crazy for bling are...
