    Trust me, I have been blaming myself for not riding him well enough for the entire year. I finally realized this may be one time when it is not my fault, and it might be on him, whether it is pain or...

    I also think I'm going to give magnesium a try. Fairly inexpensive, and it can't hurt just to see if it helps. Does anyone have a preference between Quiessence and the Magnesium 5,000 that SmartPak...

    Definitely rubber pull-ons for long term wear. They are a huge pain to get on, but if you're planning on leaving them on 24/7 it's the best way to go. A bunch of the horses at my barn have rubber...

    Well, at least I am not the only one with this problem! My guy does the same thing about not wanting to go into the next field and that kind of thing as well. We had moved up to Training not too long...

    I know people have varying opinions on this, but to me, giving a horse a whack on the landing side of a sticky fence isn't so much a punishment, but more of a "Let's go, you've got to do a little...

    "Ride the damn horse!" :winkgrin:

    I know for a fact that GMHA and Mystic Valley Hunt Club said no bracelets due to lack of service. If you can't wear them at every event, they are not worth the money and just create more hassle of...

    There's an unrecognized event in CT where you have to walk about a mile to xc from the dressage/stadium area but it's a nice trail through the woods and they make it very well-known. Plus they have...

    Not to mention that Benjamin Winter had already jumped around the course clear on a previous horse, so I think its safe to say he "knew how to ride the fence."

    In Buck's defense, I do believe he was wearing his helmet on all four of his rides at Jersey Fresh. So, I think maybe (hopefully!) he is going to start wearing his helmet from now on.

    I think it depends on what level you're competing at. For example, at Training and below, I just put some liniment on my horse's legs (which I'm sure I do more for my sake than his) and then make...

    Clark and Loughan Glen go at 12:20 EST, but they're running a tad behind due to multiple holds for fence repairs. He's one of the last riders to go.

    I believe Lucinda Fredericks brought that horse through 1*. I think Marilyn just gives all her horses the RF prefix. Such a sad loss, that horse had a big future.
