    Eventers are a very inclusive group. I have seen all kinds of horse/rider combinations competing and no one bats an eye. You have heard of Theodore O'Connor, right? If he could compete successfully...

    I would be more worried about the ice than the cold, just from my own personal, recent experience. I moved my older gelding from CA to WI this summer, and he did alright...He had some weight loss due...

  7. How about "Nice Things Your BO Has Done For You/Your Horse"

    As entertaining as the thread is about things you never thought you'd have to tell your BO, in the spirit of the holidays, I thought it would be good to start a thread about nice things your BO (or,...

    If this mare's genetics are really worth passing on, maybe you could do ET?

    I didn't see your post until after I had written mine. That's exactly the book I was referencing. It was just one picture, though. I don't know if it was actually common practice or not, but it...

    This is an interesting discussion. I have a book that talks about and pictures an orphan foal being draped in the skin of the mare's "stillborn" foal. The picture is very dated, and the book was...

    I am sorry for your loss. Your little guy will have good company in heaven... I lost my old gelding last week to a pasture accident, and my mare earlier this year to colic. I hate this part of horse...

    Yes, my horse's stall needs to be cleaned DAILY by you, as stated in the board agreement.

    Please do not feed my horse moldy hay. I realize it sucks to buy a shipment of (cheap) hay and discover...

    I'm not an expert, but increasing exercise by 15 minutes per week seems like a big jump to me. Most of the conditioning schedules I've read suggest bumping up exercise time by 5 or 10 minutes at a...

    Just from a purely lower level amateur perspective, I am really hoping event horse prices do not go the way of dressage horse or hunter/jumper horse prices. One of the things that attracts me to...

    We had an '02 Dodge Ram one ton dually diesel. It was one of those that had transmission problems. It had had the tranny rebuilt at least once before we bought it (in 2006), then not even a year...

    Just shipped my old guy from CA to WI with Bob Hubbard. He came off the air-ride bright eyed and bushy tailed. They were the most reasonable quote I received from three well known national shippers....

    I'm so disappointed...I just got a letter back from them saying my sample was untestable and I need to resample. I wish I could resample, sadly, the mare is gone. I was so hoping it would work. :(

    Owie! I bet that hurt. The after shot looks great, though. Nice job, vet! I hope Seven feels better, soon.

    My gelding tried to peel his ear like a banana back in 2006. I still have the picture....

    Depending on how far north you are, Dr. Barry Liebelt works out of Murrieta with Equine Health Management, and I think may go down to Fallbrook area. He's fantastic.

    Heck, I've fallen off doing dressage without even having the horse go down with me. I was cantering past the opening of the dressage arena, I expected horsie to stay in, but she had a different idea....

    OP, just curious, did you ever send your trainer's TB/Perch off to be tested? I'm curious how the results will come back.

    I ended up getting enough hairs from my mare's tail brush to send in, and...
