    I rarely get a stall. Some shows around here want $100 just to use a stall for the afternoon, let alone overnight. All my horses have been fine with tying to the trailer. A full hay net, a bucket...

    Not Marin or Sonoma, but you might want to check out Mar-Val in Lodi. They are very conscientious and the property and trails around it are certainly very flat. Irrigated pasture with run in sheds...

    $15 to pick feet? My boarding barn charges $15 to LUNGE a horse, much more work than (actually including) picking out the hooves. Sounds like extortion to me. Even if it was agreed to,it should've...

    Barbie does horses? Hmmm...the usual skinny b**ch. GM would approve. Like the horse, though.

    There was a hope that when Reining was added to the WEG, their requirement of horses being a minimum of 6 years old (just like the other WEG disciplines) would encourage the western trainers to back...

    LOL. I thought it was a reference to the rider, too. I get more of what my mom used to call a "frog face" - pouty looking from concentration. I try to consciously maintain a nice neutral or even...

    Apparently,that is something that can be penalized in the hunter equitation ring (There was an article in COTH), but indeed, I've never seen it penalized in dressage. In fact, if done with the...

    Bluey, don't you think it likely they are just hilltopping, probably not even for the entire hunt? It's not like they're first flight! Basically just a glorified trail ride. (and very cute) I was...

    As much as I detest ApHC, they don't require anything of dressage show management. Regular USDF class scores count (if you have nominated your house under ApHC and filed a copy of the papers with...

    I thought the story was not that the owners "took him back," but that, with much regret, HL SENT him back because they were not paying the costs of training, etc.

    My first two horses, I paid cash, but they only cost $650 and $1,500 respectively. All the others, I paid with personal checks, but in each case, I had found the horse thru friends, or was...

    Msj, the funny thing is that my horse was a pasture pony for the first 3.5 years of his life. He was always clean when I visited him prior to taking him to the colt starter. Maybe he likes the...

    You guys are gonna hate me: My horse lives in a stall and paddock to which he has 24/7 access, gets turnout a couple of times a week in a dry lot or minimally grassy pasture. His paddock is the...

    Re the hot air balloons, a friend of mine, a small time breeder of quite nice Appy/TB sport horses,often had hot air balloons land in her mare pasture up in the Napa wine country. The mares got so...

    Personally, I think the tests are, once again, almost in reverse order. I agree test 3 seems the easiest, 1 and 2, I think sort of a toss:up depending upon your horse's strengths and weaknesses. ...

    Ah, costume classes. Some years back, when I was still eventing, we put on a Halloween schooling show. It was going to be walk only, just judged on the costumes. My roommate and I decided to do ...

    [QUOTE=GoshenNY;8044902]Is you neck ok?
    Mine is damaged from this type of collision.[/QUOTe

    I'm fine. It was startling, but while I felt the impact, it was more of a shove than a jolt for me.

    Aregard- This is the first time it has happened with This truck. The other two times were my 1988 3/4 ton Chevy (also white). I figure the first truck and its killer tendencies was reincarnated in...

    Seriously, I doubt her being able to see a bright orange hitch would have made any difference: she slammed into me at about 35-40 mph. She admitted she mistakenly stepped on the accelerator, not...

    That is so cool! And not all that expensive. I may get one. I can put the little car outlines with "x" across them along the edges of it as a warning.

    There's some reality to this. It's my understanding that some hunts in Austrailia DO do this. Smooth wire, not barbed, but still....I've seen photographs.

    Yup. Damage to my truck has been minimal in each case and I'd prefer to keep it that way. It would have been a lot worse without. I tow once or twice a week, so it's a pain to be removing it. No...

    It must be because it's a Chevy. My first truck, Blanco (a 1988 Cheyenne), "collected" the first two kills. This is the first kill for Blanco Segundo (a 2003 Silverado HD). It's the...

    Friend had a trailer that had the three part rear doors - top/middle/ramp. So, one horse - smallish QH - had a habit of dashing backwards the moment the ramp was dropped, whether the middle part was...

    Killer Truck Strikes Again ;0)

    You know how WW II fighter planes have symbols of their "kills" painted on them? Well, I think I should start painting Honda symbols on my truck(s). Last night on my way home from the barn, driving...
