    If there is nothing medically wrong with your horse and he is just picky, try a bottle of Guinness over his feed. My mare can be terribly picky and Guinness did the trick in helping her appetite. ...

    I had a Hawk 2-horse, straight load with LQ (fully RV rated). It was about the same footprint of their 2+1 trailers. Many people do not like them, but my trailer did have mangers and tack storage...

    My concern would be a drunken sponsor/guest climbing over the fence to get a closer look/photo. Sheesh.

    When I bred my mare, she was an older maiden and we competed in eventing at the lower levels. For the first 60 days, she did very little other than light riding to keep her moving a bit. After that...

    My mare can be a picky eater with her grain. What has worked for her is a bottle of Guinness over one of the feedings a day. There is no problem with her eating hay, but she does like to take a...

    I try to follow the rule changes each year and make sure I have a written copy of the rules to take with me when jump judging (I no longer compete). For those of you who are new to the sport and...

    When I was concentrating on dressage with my mare, any time I would work on something new, such as half-pass, she would start grinding her teeth. Once she began to grasp the new movement, she would...

    Thank you, Molly. So very well-written.

    I agree that all the blame does not fall on the judges, but I have a real problem when I see judges not watching rounds. I know all the rhetoric about...

    Right there with you. I am short, a bit overweight, and a bit curvy. I wear 32R breeches for a comfortable fit. Can't stand too snug. I have been very pleased with the Ovations, mid-rise. Nice...

    I have a mare with a killer bascule with a kick behind (love her tail flip). As a result, I leave the bigger jumps to our trainer. :-) Her mother, who I competed in lower level eventing, was the...

    Yes, Skipollo, but since this was on the H/J forum, I thought it was unusual for schooling or a riding club outside of eventing to require a vest. It is always required for XC. For H/J, it is not a...

    That seems to be a little unusual for the local riding club to require a protective vest unless they are hosting cross country schooling or horse trials. That being said, if you feel more...

    I know Maria; not well, but she has a good reputation here. She used to come to the farm where I once boarded to jump school some of the greener horses. As a matter of fact, she did start my mare...

    Wow, that's interesting. There is nothing on Showplace's website about it yet. Was planning to do Sept. 2-6. If they do make that change, I will have to re-think my plan. Not really interested in...

    I understand where you are with your riding. I am 60+. Started riding as a kid; had a major hiatus when I went to college; started riding again at 41. It is a totally different ballgame as an...

    I remember him well. A horse that made me all starry-eyed watching him and Kerry in the Olympics. I was very new to the sport at that time. Lovely horse!!!

    SarahandSam, so much would depend on what you want to do/like to do. Wayne is a beautiful, little enclave in the Chicago suburbs; however, there is little to do right in Wayne unless something is...
