    If you have proof that she is in violation of the rules, report it. Much more productive than complaining online.

    It looks like she joined as an amateur/ life member in 1994 and hasn't updated her status since then. While I'm a big believer in following the rules, getting upset that she is listed as an amateur...

    Riding Warehouse is $5 for shipping if you spend more than $50. I just put it in my cart and did the shipping calculator and it was $7 for UPS Ground if you just bought that.

    I've only done it the opposite way (given it for the duration of an overnight competition). The recommendation I got was to give 3 (57 mg pills) as a loading dose and then give 1 per day the...

    That's a tough size combo to find off the rack. These are the only ones I could find when I looked, but of course they were out of stock last summer when I sprained my ankle and had to have zip...

    If she's really quiet and good about it, I would just sweep the bedding back and do her in the stall using a rubber feed tub or something. I think that will be colder and last longer than anything...

    I would go pretty good sized for the farm logo, smaller for sponsors unless you mainly only have one. Get a piece of poster board and use that to see what different sizes look like.

    Wearing the collar up and the neck anywhere from slightly to completely unzipped is totally fine.

    I think there's more than just a communication problem and you probably don't want to be in the middle of it.

    The answer-- that no wraps or boots provide support, just protection-- is still the same.

    Not necessarily. The time I've seen it happen the horse stood perfectly, the needle was definitely new and the shot was given by a vet who vaccinated more than a dozen horses that day. It can pick...

    I wouldn't typically expect a horse that had showjumped well to need much/any xc warm-up in that situation. It does sound like it's possible it's his eyes, or even just that he doesn't process the...

    My horses just throw all the hay out of the bags into the driveway/ field so I sometimes put the small hole hay net in the bag for longer days.

    Also do many people use more than two studs? I've legitimately never seen this-- my trainer mostly uses a variety of bigger ones on the outside and tiny roads on the inside, so that's what I do as...
