    I had a large, oval rug in my bedroom. I would get on all fours and use the rug as my arena. I did beautiful flying changes.
    In the woods behind our house was a short walking trail. Of course,...

    My husband's old gelding did this, too. All summer long and he nearly emptied the trough every time. Our water bill has gone down considerably since we lost him.

    I miss that goober.

    Full Cheek Snaffles - Why no keepers?

    Admittedly, I have been away from the horse show scene for a while, so there may be an obvious answer. But in scrolling through photos on FB, I am seeing a lot of horses going in full cheeks without...

    Wow. Just, wow. Yeah, this guy is not worth all of this hassle for a $4K sale.

    A couple of thoughts:

    I'm no expert, but a good barrel horse should have two good canter leads, as they use both when running a pattern. If he's missing one then you may want to look for pain...

    Those feeds are 14% and 15% protein. Alfalfa is high protein. I would cut back on the protein and up the forage (orchardgrass, pasture). Also, less riding. She is probably too fit for gaining...

    It's not hard, but it can be dangerous. Follow the rules and always expect something to happen. Just like with horses. I'm in favor of learning how to use as many tools as one can get their hands...

    This was going to be my response. Shedding is related to daylight, but we can maybe help it along with a blanket that acts like a sort of 'passive curry comb'. In that case, I'd suggest a...
