    I said halt, which is the most accurate...

    Horse was standing at a mounting block, I put my leg over her (bare) back, and pushed off hard... ended up falling right off the other side.

    When it's not too muddy, baby powder helps--poof a generous amount on and rub it into the hair. The mud will stick to the baby powder rather than the hair/skin, making it much easier to keep clean...

    The issue isn't that they're killed, the issue is that they're tortured. If you want to kill an animal, then fine, but kill it quickly and with as little pain a possible. Back when I thought...

    My now-29 year old TB gelding had an ACTH of 394 (397? something just shy of 400). He's probably around 1100 pounds, maybe a little less. We started him on 1mg Prascend daily (for the first few...

    Well there's your problem. Get a nice Thoroughbred, maybe a 22 year old chestnut TB mare. Paints are nothing but trouble (and they're ugly, too).

    Correctly applied heartbars work miracles; the problem is many farriers don't know how to do it. Esco Buff is the best if you can afford him... well, he's the best no matter what, but if you can't...

    I think it's fun to say completely ridiculous things when people are snarky/nosy. For example, when asked why you haven't xrayed it, say "I'm saving up for a manicure" or if your horse tends to be...

    How to get her to respect you? Make her listen to you, and have consequences when she doesn't. Carry a crop and don't hesitate to use it. You seem to be a bit timid, which is an absolute no with...

    I didn't hear the comment so no idea how it was said, but I agree, I don't think the comment was rude or snarky. I don't think anyone was disappointed that a rider (I'm assuming you mean ML) wasn't...

    You're right, but... we already know that the rules don't always apply to ML, so I have to wonder if there was any degree of turning a blind eye or giving her the benefit of the doubt. If it had...

    Yes, don't bother with "official" sheath cleaners. Lube or even mineral oil is your best bet.

    To find the bean(s), lube up and go fishing. I've never cleaned a sheath while the horse dropped. ...

    I was rooting for Rocana from the start, but very very happy for Lauren, Maya, and Elisa.

    If Lauren and Veronica aren't selected for the Olympics, it's a crime.
