    I'm an OCD dragger and drag a lot.

    But I need them to add 10,001 additional animations with jumps added to the arena to accurately reflect my options ;)

    I started turning my daughter loose on her pony when she was 4. I can't remember if we started actually lessons before then or after....I think I waited to do the lessons until she was closer to 5....

    I use my County Sensation on my medium and small ponies. Works beautifully.

    All of my horses have big shark-fin withers, and my ponies are no different. My Sensation is a narrow tree (though...

    Ugh! I pulled a groin muscle in a big Grand Prix in May. Happened in the Thursday prix and then I re-pulled it in over fence 1 in the Saturday prix. It was so painful! First time I've ever considered...

    I just buy the plain old ACV from the grocery store. My guy's the same way - not a fan of "sweet" flavors to the point that he won't eat sugar cubes (which I think is so weird!).

    Agree with peppermint. My TB will only eat peppermint or cinnamon flavored additives to his feed, though I've never tried peppermint-flavored bute (when I have to give him bute, which is infrequent,...

    My daughter started showing my former 1.40m horse in the short stirrup last year when she (my daughter) was 7. Mare is a complete and total one-in-a-million horse.

    I can't tell you how many times...

    I hated hated hated my Ogilvy back pad. But I love love love my Ogilvy baby pads!

    Seems like the baby pads are cheaper than the $75, but I also have 2 of the "nicer" pads (the friction-free and...

    I've had so many dead babies this year! But no mites that I've noticed.

    My barn becomes fully infested with swallows every year. I hate the poop but I love the birds and the happy chatter all...

    I posted my review above, but will add that after a couple of months' use, I like it enough that I purchased a second pad so that I don't have to switch shims in and out at shows. Still a big fan!

    I agree with poltroon and others in leaning towards giving college more of a chance. In particular, this:



    I sold my big jumper when I went to college. Actually, I still had him through most...

    I am curious why people think oval corners make for easier dragging?

    As I mentioned, I have square corners, which, of course, means that the corners never get dragged all the way into the 90...

    I've had two with facial fractures. The first is my OTTB who came to me with a pretty gnarly looking scar below/alongside his left eye and an eye that doesn't quite line up with his other. I don't...

    If you can get more space with rounded corners (even just one or two of them), then go with rounded corners. I don't think it will matter in the long run at all.

    My arena has square corners. For...

    The mare in my profile pic is now 20 years old and still going as strong as she has since I got her at 6(ish). We did the 1.30m-1.40m jumpers for 6 or so years and I stepped her down when my next...

    Take a small strip of duct tape and tape the zippers shut. In other words, zip up the boots, and then place the thin strip of duct tape (1/2" by 1 1/2"-2" maybe?) across right below the zipper so...

    I did a one-day haul in option at shows with a couple of my horses in June. The drive was 3 1/2 - 4 hours each way. I arrived at the show at noon, finished up around 5, and hauled home. Not sure I...

    I had an 85-lb Husky who tore hers at 9 or 10. Almost the same experience as katyb - she also didn't handle confinement well and had major issues that made the surgery option very unappealing. We did...

    But a car isn't the same thing.

    The reason a horse is worth more coming from a bigger name is because what you're really paying for is an assurance from a (theoretically) more knowledgeable...

    I'm not a trainer, but I aim to sell a horse or two a year and use that to help pay for the other horses. My babies go along to horseshows with me until they sell. So they usually start coming to...

    Www.shoesecure.com

    I had a horse like this. It was not a shoeing issue, rather a horse issue. Shoe secures were the only thing that ever worked for keeping the shoes on.
