    Bingo!!! This is spot on. Thank you for looking at the big picture of the lower level riders. The lower levels encompass the early stages of learning the sport and growth at each level. BN should...

    I wear multi-focal contacts and they work fine for riding. I have worn my glasses, but they just aren't as comfortable to me and I too worry about a fall with glasses on. Dust has not been an issue...

    We fly with our dog all the time (11 lb. Dachshund). Most domestic airlines no longer require health certificates, but it is always good just to double check. They do require that you are...

    For a slant load, that is a good set up. Hate the thought of having to unload one horse to get the front horse out. Ideally, I like a ramp in the back and front/side; however, I owned a two horse...

    I am really paranoid, so I prefer straight load. God forbid something happens, I can get to both horses.

    This. Don't be in any hurry or think you have to be at a certain level in any given time. A break in confidence, plus a new baby is a lot to grasp. Ride a horse that will help build your...

    My sentiments exactly. The derbies were supposed to bring back some excitement to the hunters and people were looking for a horse with a bit more power and go for the derby ring. It has, in my...

    MintHillFarm - I think I love you. You are actually taking quality of the round into consideration and not just the strides.

    Amen. Unfortunately, that is not what pins. If you do not have the correct strides between fences even with a big-strided horse, it doesn't matter how the jump looks. You would think that a lovely...

    I left Markel a few years ago. Each little issue created an exclusion on their policy, but the kicker for me was the less than stellar customer service by my rep. Each time I would call with a...

    First of all, congratulations on the expected foal. Take the time to enjoy every step of this journey. I was a first timer too when I bred my mare and I did my best not to cut corners for this...

    Years ago, I had the same problem after I finally quit bracing at the canter. Instructors would tell me to "sit", but it just was not fluid with my horse's movement. One day, I watched an...

    I will chime in with my experience. I think you really need to be honest with yourself on your riding ability, age (reflexes, balance is different as we age), budget, and will you have a horse to...

    This wouldn't necessarily be the case. It is done at all the dressage shows and horse trials/events and on a volunteer basis. Virtually no extra cost to the show or exhibitors unless show...

    Denny always gives me something to think about with respect to my riding and my horse. I have a wonderful 8 y.o. Dutch Warmblood mare that I bred. First I will say that she is my baby and not going...

    My personal opinion is that any time in the saddle is good time no matter how limited it might be.

    I am in the same boat to a degree. I went back to work the first of the year for my husband on...

    With a trainer being that adamant about specific brands, my first thought would be that he/she was getting a kick-back from the manufacturer. This scenario is totally ridiculous especially for a kid...

    Several years ago, a friend of mine had a mare that was very temperamental, reactive, and just a witch. She found that she had tumor on an ovary. Once she had it removed, it did make all...
