    If I'm riding someone else's horse I probably would put mine on. That said, if an instructor, owner of a horse I'm riding, barn manager, or event manager has a helmet required rule I simply go get...

    I'm wondering why the focus on the cowboy hats? I'm a Western rider and while I never trail ride or hack on the road without a helmet, I don't wear one in the arena unless on an unpredictable or...

    We've got it around here, but it's for peppermint cookies.

    Are you scrubbing buckets every day? That seems excessive. I scrub my buckets once a week on Sundays. On a daily basis I just scoop out any hay bits and refill. Obviously if a bucket gets gross for...

    Yes, I gradually increase the time as instructed. But the instructions also say to use overnight and not turnout with them on. Hence my asking if anyone is consistently using them for less than...

    If you're planning to keep it for 5 years or more, get what you want. If you think you might need to sell it in the next few years, buy what other people want. Same rules that apply to house...

    Yeah I'm west coast and my hard keeper gets 4 flakes of 2nd cut alfalfa each day - works out to be about 25#.

    Most of the QH I know get 2-3 flakes of grass hay per day and stay fat on that. Our...
  8. Back on Track Quick Wraps - How Many Hours Per Day?

    Hello!

    I've been using the back on track quick wraps on my gelding's hind legs and I'm in love with how nice and tight they make his legs. He's got windpuffs, probably from being a futurity...

    It is probably horse dependent. All of my strands are hot and I test the voltage regularly because my mini mule will go under if the bottom strand isn't as hot as I can get it.

    See, I disagree that they can't really move when they're fenced with electric in narrow runs. Everyone I've ever had will stand right up next to it, poop within inches of it, play bitey face over it,...

    I fenced my runs with all electric last year. I'm cheap and used 3 strands of electric rope for the interior fencing (my perimeter fence is coated tensioned electric).

    They're 18' wide at the...

    I bought a contract from Equine Legal Solutions when I leased a horse out last year. It covered all the questions you're after.

    I ride 45-60 minutes if I'm riding on my own. That includes warm up and cool down. Usually it's a few minutes of walking, 5-10 minutes of trot work and then the rest in blocks of lope and gallop,...

    If you condition the saddle well you can get it started in a few days. Then put the stick back in every time you put it on the rack for a few months. As the saddle gets more broken in and the fenders...

    We've got 3.4 acres and have made it work well for up to 3 horses (2 is better). All of the buildings were here when we bought. We did the fencing. It works because I have access to multiple indoor...

    You need to get your stirrups twisted - either find a saddler to do a Hamley twist or do the broomstick method (you can google that). Either will get the Blevins off his sides.

    In the meantime...

    Hmmm. I feel like painting the lower section another color and then painting the trim might help, the house I mean. I might use an olivey green on the lower body and then a taupe (mid tone between...

    What does the back do when you cinch it? Does it pop up? It looks too wide to me.

    Modern RVs are really really easy to set up and tear down - particularly places like show grounds where you usually can pull through a camping spot and it's already pretty dang level.

    If you're going to give him a checklist, it's needs to be really really specific - ala Simkie's example. And then ask him to check items off every day. That way, when he fails to meet expectations...

    I've had a series of naughty mouthy geldings and never had an issue with floating tank heaters. But I know others have.

    I keep mine in sheets/blankets 24/7 starting about now (with the exception of warm sunny days over 60). To check temperature I do 2 things, 1) feel the base of the ears to make sure they're warm, 2)...

    If you're willing to ante up for a good pad, I like the Classic Equine Zone pads. Very good protection, plus all the benefits of felt.

    Dry spots bigger than your fist can be okay - but only if it's a sign of "the last place the horse sweats" rather than painful pressure. If the horse is complaining I'm going to say not good. Do you...

    Rhodes River Ranch in Oso has a heated indoor and restaurant but that's the only one I've seen. I ride at a barn with a true indoor.
