    1960s horse trailers

    I'm helping out a non-horsey friend who had some horse-related questions for a novel he's writing. One of them stumped me--what's a brand/make of trailer that would have been popular in the 1960s?...

    I think it's mostly the issue of being out of work, lazy, unfit, and accustomed to doing whatever she damn well pleases. ;) My favorite advice is just to ignore it, and thus I will proceed. To the...
  3. Spinoff--Would you correct this behavior? (Ear pinning under saddle)

    My little mare was started very late (age 8; she is now 13) and since then has had a ton of time off due to my busy schedule. I'm trying to get her going again. She is a quiet horse but she is an...

    Well, for her own sanity she needs to find a way to cut back. No one can be expected to work so much. You said she has 3 or 4 horses of her own--are these sale horses, lesson horses, or some other...

    We've got her tied out on a horse lunge line right now... so far no dice! She doesn't seem to be in distress or anything. I'm sure at some point it will happen.

    Trail riding or driving. His movement and conformation don't suggest jumping or dressage at all, sorry. Where did the idea that he's an Andalusian cross come from? He looks like a grade draft cross...

    Look at the gorgeous beasts in the photo! Thankfully they appear relatively uninjured. The writing in the article also displays a humorous lack of horse savvy (i.e. "neither horse was wearing a...

    Valley trailer sizing

    Hi all, anyone familiar with the naming conventions for Valley trailer sizes? Specifically, what does "Warmblood size" mean? The Valley website is supremely unhelpful.

    Many long years ago when I was a working student, I was bringing in my trainer's two jumpers. They somehow got away from me, and both went merrily galloping down the driveway. I shouted for help and...

    I once slept in my tall boots after a show because I couldn't pull them off by myself, no one was around to help, and I was exhausted. NOT recommended.

    Right, the situation is scary. Don't feel bad about your inexperience, OP. I've been riding for much longer than you, and I would NOT get on this horse under these conditions.
