    I've got one like that. Never a foot wrong at shows, but he loves to keep it interesting at home.

    Like Lion1024 said, the only hotel in Devon is the Courtyard. It is walking distance though.

  7. Very serious (silly) question about horse poop

    Why don't horses poop when you hand graze them?

    Seriously.

    We ride them - they poop. On the cross ties - they poop. Walking down the aisle to the cross ties is also a great time to go,...

    My parents have a pit bull. She was about 1.5 years or so when they got her - no one knows for sure, as she's from a rescue. Her background story is unknown, but she was taken from...

    I have the Pessoa bridle, and for the price point, I'm a fan. It keeps its reddish color - so be aware of that. It took a good deal of oiling/rolling/etc. to get it broken in initially. The leather...

    Instead of renting a car and paying hotel parking fees, see about signing up for Zipcar. There are tons in DC, and I bet even with the initiation fee and whatever it will be cheaper.
