    One of the horses at my barn does this. We put her in a studded noseband when jumping and it's worked wonderfully.

    (Probably best to put my flame suit on now because I remember seeing a thread on...

    :lol: THIS! I showed my little pony in the 3'6" jumpers, but thinking about even jumping my 17hh hunter in training 3' scares the crap out of me!

    I rode with Marleta and Kersten Lillejord for many years every summer in the Austin area. Hands down the best barn I've ever been at.. I bought three of my horses from them and if I ever move back to...

    All the other posts seem to answer your questions, so all I'll say is that I'm also very pro-leasing. In fact, I don't ever want to OWN another horse again.
    As far as buying and then re-selling...

    Dress boots are definitely coming back because, as you said, there's no need for laces when you have a zipper.
    Tredstep came out with their dress boots literally two days after I received my...

    I haven't read all the posts so I'm not sure if this has already been suggested, but have you put any thought into renting it out to someone for a flat fee? You could have your horse there, and other...
  10. Looking for a small pasture companion (Western NY)

    My barn at home will soon be empty besides my retired mare that I've decided to keep, and I'm looking for a little "pasture puff" to keep her company. I'd prefer a miniature horse or donkey, but...

    I'm curious.. what kind of horse is he? Sorry if you already answered this, I didn't get to read all of the posts.

    What kinds of things have you and your trainer tried in the past to get him to slow down? Any exercises you've been doing, and how long have you been working on getting him to slow down?

    THIS. Exactly this.
    Riding in general has changed so much, not just the hunter division. I found a video online of the Maclay Finals in the 80's and the riders position, horses way of going,...

    Although I'd probably travel north for the summers for shows.

    I currently have a horse in training and I'm paying $600/month with rides 6 days a week. I've found it's usually closer to $1,000-$1,500/month for rides that much, however I've just started riding...

    I'm sort of on the same boat, too.. although I don't have anxiety when it comes to jumping and still love it, I second guess myself left and right. I have a good eye and can generally see my distance...

    Thanks everyone! There are actually no longer any tack shops near me, but there's one about an hour away that we make the trip up to from time to time that has really good deals on tiny show shirts...

    I did the same thing. :lol:
    I haven't had this problem with any of my CO's, but a woman at my barn had an AYR8 that the logo fell off of, and it still looks nice. :)

    I use a quilted sheepskin halfpad over baby pads on all my horses, and so does almost every barn I've ever ridden at. I don't think it's a h/j vs dressage preference because the last barn I worked...

    She knows her job too well to the point where she gets offended if you try to tell her how to do it. Like your guy, she's pretty laid back and lazy at home, but still...
