    I moved from central Florida (East coast) last year.
    While there I locally purchased what we called coastal hay at $7.25/50 pound bale from the feed store down the road.

    We built our own. Use treated lumber (less rot, more expensive), HEAVY hinges to hold the weight, 1/2 inch plywood (3/4 inch is too heavy). Provide "rough opening" dimensions to door builders. ...

    I would fertilize before a rain then turn horses out on the grass. NOT weed and feed, just feed.

    Since I have 2 Cushings equine, and tons of grass, I have to be careful of grass founder - so...

    People will disagree with me but this is what my GP trainer had me do with my Swedish mare - I took one rein (usually inside rein) and "bumped" the rein -DOWN. She would toss her head up but since I...

    My husband made my dressage arena when we lived in Cocoa (central fla along the coast). He took out many LARGE oak trees, added painted wood to hold in footing for my full sized dressage arena- 20x0...

    My trainer was showing GP in the Florida circuit and had to retire her horse. He can be ridden but not collect, so he's currently ridden on trails on a loose rein (she's also very light weight).

    If you lived near me you could use my 16.3 hand, 25 yo Swedish WB mare free. She knows 3rd level movements, not competitive but safe in the ring and on trails. I've used her for lessons for the last...

    During jumping helps clarify. She may have pain or have been over-faced or another reason. My old jumping instructor had me jump then halt and stand (usually until she just starts to get antsy then...

    Buy 3 or 4 pieces of PVC, put holes top and bottom for a rope to go through - knot rope so PVC "sits" on rope knot. Hang on hook on the wall. Holds 3-4 blankets.

    Focusing on dressage will improve his "regulation" ability for jumping, so I would concentrate on dressage and occasionally jump. Easier on his legs too!

    We owned both bush hog and finishing mower when we lived in Florida. If there isn't a lot of tree roots/rock (like here in Ky where we live now) then the finishing mower that will self "adjust" to...

    Have horse tested for Cushings - that's why my mare's coat was getting thicker and why pony looked like he was in Siberia, not a Florida summer.

    Find a LARGE tub and pre-pump water into the tub. Take water for the Rainbirds from the tub (pump will provide pressure). If tub isn't large enough continue to fill tub while watering with Rainbirds.

    No experience but looks intere4sting. I'd love to know what the cost is (versus RAMM fencing). Looks interesting.

    My mare started this exact behavior around 6 years of age - turned out to be a thyroid problem. At one point I never knew how sensitive she would be - one day a shift in the saddle got me flying...

    Our local Ag center (in Florida) told us to lime and fertilize the grass, seed where needed, and the grass will out grow the weeds (IF you have enough pasture to rotate). Local Ag center can also...

    Stall base - Over Clay

    OK - so we've moved to Kentucky from Florida and temporarily I have the horses in the old (soon to be hay) barn. Unlike Florida's soil (sand) the clay here gets wet with urine and stays wet and...

    My trainer had a student that went to a local German trainer who put her in that situation - she ended up with a broken neck.

    So no - I wouldn't have a rider up with side reins on.
