    Seriously. My horse developed it as a side effect with EPM messing with his immune system.

    It's sad, but Smart Strike was 23, so it's not entirely out of left field. Very few thoroughbreds make...

    Two weeks, give or take. I ordered a dress on 2/24, estimated delivery was 3/16, it shipped on 3/3 and arrived 3/6. I've customized almost everything I've ordered from them one way or another.

    170 guys, three, maybe four mounting blocks? The horses will be very good at standing and waiting!

    Honestly, having a trainer who pushes isn't good for a kid who gets scared. Group lessons make it worse as you've got a pack around you. The only thing that kept me on horses was quitting the jump...

    Take a lot of the 'absolutes' given on COTH about towing with a giant grain of salt, as the real answer is 'it depends.' It depends on the trailer, the hitch, the engine, the tow package you buy (if...

    I would venture a guess it is less about setting out from Day 1 to have a Derby Horse than it is just learning to work with the horse you have and see where he goes. Even when you know you never...
