    I sort of love that you had a mental breakdown and started crying in the ring and scratching. While I am a MUCH lower level, I have had a few meltdowns myself at shows and got the whole 'you should...

    It does! If I could post the photos I took here I would. I mean my horse is dead quiet (who says red headed OTTB's are crazy?) so I walk him and let him do what I call 'trail grazing'. I know, I'm...

    Because they are so bored they are falling asleep in the tack. Because hunters are that boring and so easy to do.

    I thought of this thread yesterday when I was trail riding my horse and checking my Facebook while everyone was posting their show photos and I was like 'I'm having more fun than anyone else!'

    No, he's just a little hunter/jumper project I have and wanted his papers to go with him if/when he sells. It sounds like it might be more work to get them than it's worth.
  6. Jockey Club Papers - Need originals

    I have a gelding I purchased with only a photocopy of his papers. The word was that the originals were lost somewhere in him shipping from the track to his turnout time. I want to recover the...

    Some folks just like to create drama. If you don't have a dog in the fight, then why start one? I know what she's speaking of as well and the stallion owner is farm from drama.

    The owner does...
  8. I think I love you.

    I think I love you.
  9. And welcome to why I rarely come here anymore. ...

    And welcome to why I rarely come here anymore. This board has really gotten to be about beating the same topics to damned death. We're abusing our horses. Why is everyone ok with it? What...

    OH dear God here we go again. After this I'm going to trek over the eventing forum and hear about how the sport is evil and horses are dying and something needs to be done to fix it (but nobody is...

    *stands up* I own not one but two fancy horses and I don't want to show.

    Seriously though. I thought too, there's something wrong with me, for wanting to 'stay home.' I get anxious at shows....

    OK oddly I was coming here to get some arena advice myself. OP let me know if you'd like me to start a separate thread. We have a ring with sandy loam, however, it's not consistent footing. I'm...

    It's like that old joke "Doctor it hurts when I do this." Doctor says "then don't do it."

    If you don't like showing the horse, don't go. Trainers will ALWAYS say you need to go to shows...
  14. Grass stuck in teeth? Pleae help!

    I'm at a loss here. My horses live out in the pasture and they have 3 other friends who share all things with them. I have recently discovered the attached album in their teeth. This was a costly...

    I wanted to comment on your blog but my internet explorer isn't updated and it gave me the gong show.

    One of the really nice things about this digital age that while it allows us to hide behind...
  16. To body clip or not to body clip?

    I live out here in the North Texas and my horse is pasture kept. In true Texas fashion it goes from 70, to cold, to 70.... It's currently 70 degrees here, with a forecast for later this week to be...

    As mentioned you need to have a padded vest under it. I work part-time at Dover and we did some product testing with them so everyone knew what it was like to be 'blown up' in one. The chance of...

    Sorry but I kind of have to laugh that Dover is a 'big box' store and that it's like a Walmart. Having around 20 stores nationwide hardly feels 'big box' to me. Of course I guess as far as tack...

    Have you talked to Anne Hedge at White Hedge farms? She does foal boarding and since she has her own breeding program turns them out together.

    Dang it all, you miserable women watching their round on that unknown breeding horse are slowing the replay down and I can't trot my miserable own self to it.

    (Kidding, my replay isn't working)

    Gorgeous! And for someone who was on hay smoothies he looks fantastic. He clearly had the absolute best care.

    I would second this. She came to look at a horse that I had for sale years ago and I told her on the phone that he wasn't suitable but she said her client was determined because he was 'cute' so she...

    Does anyone have a video of the actual braiding that they can share? This was something I have been wanting to teach myself.

    I have the reverse problem (sort of). My heel gets TOO far down and then becomes useless as a 'shock absorber'. I have to work on relaxing my ankle and letting my heels come up a bit to keep my...

    LOL! Phoenix I think mine felt the same way too. He met me and I was a professional belly dancer. So I went from hard bodied and glamorous makeup to no makeup at all and smelling like a barn. ...
