    These Prestige leathers...

    These Prestige leathers are 1" but they have very little bulk under the leg. And they have lasted probably 7 or 8 years! I will definitely be buying another pair.

    I just graduated from college in may, and I will say, it was definitely a wake up call! I went to a good college prep school for jr high and high school, made all A's, etc., but then got to college...

    It really depends on the horse and the situation. Is putting him in full training in the budget? If so, I would definitely go that route--then you know for sure that he's getting worked and getting...

    Putting more weight in left stirrup

    I've noticed the past couple of days that I'm putting more weight in my left stirrup than my right. I'm assuming this is b/c my left side is weaker? When I catch myself, I lift my foot ever so...

    I'll play, though my new gelding is still a baby, so my big goal is just patience! He's been so fun (so far *knock on wood* ;) ) that it's easy to forget how young he is! But some goals:

    I'm not old (early 20's), but my hips will hurt quite a bit (usually just one at a time, but either side could hurt) every now and then. It almost feels like the joint is not in the socket correctly,...

    I have a pair of mountain horse dress boots that I got on sale a few years ago. They are my schooling boots and have been quite abused--worn 5-6 days a week, worn through muddy paddocks, in the wash...

    I used Brookledge to ship my horse from Wellington to Lexington and was satisfied, though they were originally supposed to bring him to my barn (about 6 hours from Lexington) and then at the last...

    Both of my Ayr8s did that when i first bought them too-after a few rides it was fine and even compressed to the point that it was almost too big. Could you leave your ponytail out until it compresses...

    Notebook Ideas

    I decided to start a binder for my new little gelding (he's 3). I printed a conformation picture (so I can do a comparison when he's older), as well as putting the obvious--a copy of his coggins, his...

    I live about 35 minutes from my barn (and work 5 minutes from my house, so about the same distance). I ride about 4 days a week (but usually go out 5-6 days), but I have a 3 year old, so I don't...

    I recently imported a 3 year old gelding from Holland for a dressage prospect. I bought him sight unseen from an agent that my trainer has used before. We looked with her and a breeder that my...

    I would give them a call! I emailed a few different shippers when I was trying to get my horse from FL to my barn, and NONE of them emailed me back. I called them, and w/in an hour, had 4 different...

    I just imported a dressage prospect from the Netherlands a few months ago, and couldn't be happier with him! I know it's different in terms of what you need for a dressage prospect vs. hunter...

    Her point in not wanting small, dry patches was that that meant the flocking was lumpy and creating those pressure points.

    According to my saddle fitter (who just came out a couple weeks ago), as long as the drier patches are bigger than hand-sized, and even on both sides, then it's nothing to be concerned about!

    Like Highflyer said, is there anything in your lease agreement? Personally, I think that sounds pretty crappy that she would make you pay show fees that you didn't use. If you couldn't get the horse...

    We've paid almost $500 each for each of our 3 rescues. It's certainly pricey, but fostering, you learn how much they spend on vet bills. and if for some reason the vet bill + adoption fee from the...

    Thanks so much for the replies! She's acting like she's feeling a bit better, but she's definitely milking this (she's a bit of a drama queen anyway though (; ). But I will definitely keep an eye on...
  21. Kitty managed to pull out back claws (one on each paw)--what to do?

    One of our indoor cats managed to somehow pull one of her claws on each hind foot. My guess is that she got it caught on the carpet or something, but we've never had this happen and they didn't look...

    Maybe try doing leg circles and lifting your legs away from his sides at the walk, just to really loosen them up. For me personally, when my hip flexors are tight, i tend to be more prone to clamping...
