    Just yesterday, a student shipped in for a lesson and I spotted nylon backed leathers on her saddle. I asked her if she was nuts and forbade her to use those ever again! I quickly gave her my own...
  4. Judge's clinic at Saratoga - who is going?

    Hi!

    Finally a judge's clinic in the Northeast - hooray! However, I called last week to get the details and alas it is "full". Do I have my sh*t together and my paperwork filed to start the...

    Linny - yes that is what we do and our philosophy. However, like I stated, I have seen very much the opposite and all of it in top, top h/j outfits.
  10. Saddle Placement debate - do you "ride the withers?" or set it behind shoulder?

    I am curious to your thoughts and reasons to saddle placement.

    Wall of wasps and hornets/yellow jackets

    Our home has a sunny side which seems to be a haven for nasty white tipped wasps and other stinging sorts which I believe to be hornets or yellow jackets. This has been an issue for YEARS and is...

  19. Why does no one rent out their horse trailer? What are the pitfalls?

    Hi,

    Since no one else on the planet rents out their horse trailer, I am sure there are important reasons as to why not. If you would be so kind, what are they?

    I have a nice little Brenderup...
