    You can bolt the poles to the risers.

    I haven't done it yet, but I plan to drill through the landscape timber with a spade bit and then the riser and thread a bolt through both of them.

    I think Ultium is the one feed in the Purina line that does have the fixed formula (but I could be wrong).

    My guy has been on Ultium since last July and I've been very happy with how great he...

    I used to ride in the rain more often than I do now.

    I try to time my rides between the rains, if it is possible. Weather.com has by-the-hour weather predictions and Doppler maps. I try to find...

    I believe the gel contains formaldehyde but the hardener does not.

    I have used both. I think it does depend on what type of environment your horses...

    I wonder if the people posting as experts (who aren't) truly don't realize their shortcomings?

    I usually just post about my experiences with a short background on my experience level. I add my...

    I will second the recommendation for the Purina Ultium. I have also had very good results with Ration Plus. It's a product that helps optimize the efficiency of the...

    When I had my farm I was OCD about manure too. I found carrying a sledgehammer when I was picking up paddocks was too cumbersome for me, so I used a crowbar like this

    While my situation is a little bit different because I'm not the same caliber rider, I did recently go from owning a farm to boarding.

    Totally agree with Hilary. I had a wonderful mare that I trained and competed up through Prelim and I had no previous eventing experience. I say this because it speaks volumes about what an awesome...

    I built all my own jumps. I agree with what posters have mentioned about PVC.

    If you are not jumping very high (3'6" or less), consider using 4' high standards instead of 5'. Less awkward to move...

    I sold the farm and moved a year ago. We now live in a 55+ community and I board my horse about 35 minutes away. He has been at 4 different farms since last August.

    Believe it or not, I am happy...

    Say hi to the sensitive red head for me!!

    I agree with the Purina Ultium if you can spring the slightly higher price.

    My TB does well on it and he seems to be quieter on it than he even was on the Pennfields Fibergized Omega. Maybe it's...

    Ambitious Kate is spot on.

    If it is organic material (manure, hay, shavings,etc) it will always be a mess when it gets wet. You have to keep it as free as possible from organic material. You need...
