    I'm 5'5", maybe 5'6" on a good day and it was a real adjustment to go from a Hony (15.1) to a large horse (17.1). OK, the horse is larger, more powerful and more athletic, not a compact type build....

    I do strongly feel that we have an obligation to provide a retirement for the ones who have given so much to us. That said, there's a fine line there somewhere... How much does one horse have to give...

    He taught me that he's smarter than I am.

    You see, I foolishly felt the need to stop him from pawing on cross ties. So when he pawed, I would lightly smack his chest. So what do you think he...

    So nobody tried to speak French to her to realize it was all fake? Surely she encountered French speakers? Even Francophiles who knew enough about history to question it?

    Previous trainer told me "you can never hold him too much." I think that was my last lesson with her.

    I used mine twice. The XL was tight on my mare's leg and hit a bit high, irritating her legs. So I went back to my Eskadron open front boots. $220 wasted.

    I couldn't figure out why somebody would steal boards at your barn. Then I read the thread. Oops.

    Are you kidding? I stated what didn't work for me and that bashing their return policy? I wasn't bashing, I was stating my opinion.

    I'm not arguing that I was past the return window. But let me point out that it was not appropriate for Farm House Tack to divulge details of my order. The reason for my tardiness was between Farm...

    No. About $450 for a Grand Prix soft shell coat (classic hunter?). I wanted one size up from a Quinn. The salesperson strongly suggested (pushed) 2 sizes up in another model. And what I got seemed...

    I agree with a poster above, the outfit was startling. It was even a bit revolting to my taste, just not something I'm personally comfortable with. But I wouldn't go so far as to condemn her for that...
