    I hunt my forward, 14h pony in a standing attachment on a 3 point breastplate. Like ponyclub, I have a clip on the martingale that I hop off and release, especially at two particular creek crossings...

    So-who chooses the bedtime story-you or your horse?

    'Cause if you chose without her input, you are dominating her and crippling her self expression. Her personal growth will be stunted, and she...

    Yep-I realize the "if you build it they will come" concept has some merit, but I can't see this immediate area ready for a WEG type invasion.

    Just so the hunting country lasts as long as the pony...

    I have a beautiful guest room-any bids?

    We have probably less than 25,000 people living in Polk Co. We have less than 10 traffic lights, county wide. It's a great place to live. We love it...

    Chestnut horses are "hot", chestnut mares even more so, and TB chestnut mares-hot as two dollar pistols.

    I hunt with Green Creek. We started mounted hound walks last week, and we go twice a week. We start clubbing toward the end of August. We will meet at 7:00, and are usually back to the trailers...

    OP-I am an older ammy, with my horses at home. I take lessons (hunter) weekly, trail ride and fox hunt. I do my own horse keeping.

    I think the "pro ride horse" requires a higher level of...

    Gravity doesn't care how well you ride or how solid your horse is, and it works the same for everybody. Ignoring that fact is willful.

    Blissfully dismissing what it is like to care for a TBI...

    I had one just like this, too. Away from home she never looked at anything, but would notice a pole out of place, or a crooked flower box in her own arena. She was an unraced TB mare, very easy to...

    I like feeding the Performance pellets, but honestly, for a hard keeper, I have had better luck with TC Senior.

    If you can get Nutrena, can you get Pro Force Fiber or Pro Force Senior? They are higher quality than the Safe Choice line, and lower NSC.

    Is there a good chance Untouched Talent's foal by American Pharoah will have lots of white?

    Well trub, we may have scared her off.

    Come on, OP, pin your ears and snake your head, push your way back up to the round bale...

    Can you be more specific than your initial post?

    I honestly am a lesson junkie (2-3 a week-really) and I haven't shown in about eight years. I am as serious about my riding as ever. I am happier with my riding, and my horses without the shows. ...

    Little Stumpy Bighead is by a Slew stallion out of a Topsider mare. He may be funny looking, but he is quiet and willing, a great work ethic, and TB smart. He is kind in the barn, too, with a sweet...

    You will need to come down the mountain to Polk Co. We have great hunting with Green Creek and Tryon, but it's an hour to Asheville. People from Hendersonville will ride with us now and then, but...

    It might be the generational thing, but I hate competing with cell phones, too. I'm your age, Foxglove, a cell phone is a necessary evil in my world, not a favorite toy.

    Since you like the SO,...

    I have a pair of brown field boots and a pair of black dress boots, both pre-zipper.
    As my showing days are behind me, my turnout is with the hunt field in mind, and there are no zippers in...

    I hunted for years in all kinds of going on an OTTB that came off the track with a bow. It was never an issue.

    See what the vet has to say, but if everything else is good, I wouldn't let it...

    The pony I fox hunt will do it after she's good and sweaty. One day she is going to put me in the dirt.

    My arena is deep, springy, sandy turf, part of a large creek bottom. The footing is good year round. It is resilient enough to stay in good shape with just me using it. It probably could not hold...
