    Just to chime in that I will be buying from Bobby's next time I need a bridle.

    I paid more for a KL Select (on sale), and it's a pretty disappointing bridle. You're not supposed to oil it...

    I would get the wheelbarrow out and pick up the manure along the fence line, a little at a time if necessary. If this is still too much work for your condition, then I would definitely NOT move...

    Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

    Is it a good horse? Can the prospective owner afford to feed it? Bring it home and enjoy! Mrs. Horse is 25 and she's still a super riding horse! I don't...

    Be prepared to repeat "don't run up behind the horse" calmly and firmly pretty much every lesson. Even kids that know (and can tell you) that the shoulder is the safest place to approach a horse...

    I looked into this once, and IIRC it's only really done in California. One uses a pretty cool range of skills to compete!

    I read somewhere that a good horse will stick his whole muzzle in the trough to drink, over the nostrils. The Red Pony, maybe? I've known lots of good horses, and one of them actually did drink...

    ISO small pitchfork

    My son absolutely lives to scoop horse poop. Yay!

    We have the lightweight, brightly-colored type pitchforks at the barn that he can manage OK with a little help from an adult, but even better...

    My most recent spill was from a "halt 'n' spin"

    My friend recently fell off the mounting block. This will probably happen to me one day, so I did not laugh (much).

    I think you are looking for "emergency brakes" which to me means a second rein and a martingale.

    The easiest thing to do is add a standing martingale and draw reins to your current setup;...

    Agree to check the hocks, because that's essentially what you're going to ask her to do, rock back onto her hocks more.

    I agree bigger is better for hauling. I can probably borrow the big bad F250 from my stepmom if I ever do any serious horse hauling. She lives 4 hours away, though, so I would still like to have a...
