    These are my favorite long sleeve UPF shirts. They are only rated 30+ but honestly that should be adequate, especially for a day when you're not standing in the sun all day, blocking 97% of the sun...

    The finances and responsibility are of course an issue, but when I had two horses at home, I was miserable because they really couldn't deal with being separated. Riding was stressful, not riding was...

    Dealing with your horse being sick is extremely stressful, especially if you feel you don't have backup. I suspect that's the problem you're having more than anything.

    I think you need to talk to...

    I outfitted my daughter for school last fall entirely out of their clearance section. Both she and I were very happy. :-)

    Even if you have the skill to make your own, it's still going to cost a couple hundred thousand dollars to do it in show and boarding and training expenses, by the time the horse is ready to...

    I think kid groups would love quadrille type rides. If you think you can get multiple groups to participate, you could make a fun competition with great prizes that would run say in the fall, kind of...

    I am also a huge fan. They have a little different selection since they have kind of an endurance/dressage bent which is also nice.

    They are a wonderful resource for us in California especially!

    Another fan of the Moving Comfort Maia - Title9 sells it as the 2-in-1 bra. I love it for riding but I wear it as my everyday bra also. There's no reason a sports bra can't be comfortable - it's just...

    Mclain Ward is nearly 40 now. If you want to compare behavior, at least have the good sense to compare people to their peers.

    Mclain also had the benefit of a long career with Sapphire, who...

    You just haven't been around long enough. Your specific example is in fact very wrong. :)

    Being young and successful in the public eye is wonderful but it is not always easy. Most of us have the...

    It means, the person who answered the initial email doesn't have the authority to make a change, which is normal and completely expected. But I bet it gets passed up the chain and discussed....

    You might even try having her ride a diamond touching the rail at the tangent points for a proper circle, when inside a properly sized boundary set with your poles. This will help create clarity for...

    Well... that's hardly unusual.

    Once upon a time, when I was mulling my college major, and trying to decide between engineering and biology, a smart-ass dude walked up to me and asked me if I was a...

    She needs to understand that she should not be thinking of them as circles that are coming off the track. She is supposed to be touching the rail whenever possible for that location.

    I met this guy 20 years ago. At the time he seemed smart, sensible, your basic solid horseman. I don't even recognize the persona he's become.

    Best of luck to her. It's great to see her working hard and gaining success.

    If I were advising her, and of course I'm not, I would suggest that even as she is out on her own, that she continues...

    2. Removing a few mares a day until all the mares were gone.

    They are extremely expensive, but usually there's a trial period where you can try them and return them and get your money back.

    There also appears to be a learning curve. My mom won't wear hers,...
