    Online!

    I was trying to get over an ex when my friend decided I just needed to get out with another man. Thus, she signed me up for okcupid. We met right before my 21st birthday. We were both in school at...

    I didn't realize that! That might explain it. He was bred in Illinois and raced mainly at Hawthorne and Sportsman's Park. He always ran in claims, and he was running every other week for most of his...
  3. When do you know it's time to retire a horse?

    Due to a recent choke incident, I was able to snap pictures of my old man's tattoo thanks to sedatives, and I think I was finally able to determine who he is! The leg markings are spot on for sure...

    Lower End Saddle for a Draft Cross

    I am leasing a Percheron/TB gelding who is AWESOME! The only problem is that today he started tossing his head quite a bit (it's only my third ride on him...). I thought it might be the saddle...

    Willing to let this mare go further at this point for the right situation if you provide the transportation. If the lease worked out, I'd also be willing to turn over ownership after a period of 6...

    Had someone come out to view this mare, and she was golden even with time off! W/T/C and over fences, she didn't blink an eye. Hoping to find someone to show her this summer! I'd really like to see...

    BUMP for this mare...

    I went out to lunge her last night, but there were jump lessons going on. I thought, "What the heck" and jumped on her. She rode like a dream! She was calm and cool even with...

    How often are you riding her? There is a HUGE difference in my mare's attitude when she is ridden 6 days a week versus 3-4. She also seems to actually do better when there are multiple people riding...

    Thanks for posting the link to curvy cowgirl! I can't believe I just got two pairs of jods AND field boots for under two hundred!

    Thanks Darcy! I'm not sure I could have done it without my defunct gallbladder, but it does feel good - well, outside of the fact that I get bounced out of the tack a lot easier now, haha...

    What about getting her hoof booties? That way you don't have to actually put shoes on, and you can take it one day at a time!

    I was once selling an older OTTB. He was a decent jumper when he felt like it, but he was unpredictable and not beginner friendly. Young girl came out to look at him with mom. My trainer showed him,...
  17. Two pairs of plus sized breeches - Size 40

    These things have seen better days, but they still have quite a bit of life left in them. I recently lost over 100lbs, and they do not fit me anymore.

    Is it just me or does this go back to the argument of forward vs lightness?

    In my recent learning of dressage, I have come to understand a completely new ideal of using only my seat and position...

    I would give him time to adjust before whisking the shoes back on him. No, that was not the best idea in the world, but he would have been sore no matter what. My horse was very ginger the first time...

    In the past, I tried a Kontrol. The only reason I didn't buy it was the seat size was WAY too small (a full inch). I have a mega long femur, and I could actually jack my stirrups up to near jockey...

    FWIW, my friend has a Haflinger pony who was a stallion for the 1st 8 years of his life. He is SUPER cresty and his mane could be used to smuggle things it's so thick. She shows in a running braid...
