    Does your barn have a dress code?

    I may be moving within the next year and half, and so I've been looking for barns that might not be a ridiculous drive (which in CA can be a nightmare during traffic time). I've only ever been at...

    I've been browsing ads and what I find seems to be either not experienced enough or completely out of my price range.

    For what I want, is $30k overbudgeting? Is there a more reasonable price...

  4. How long did it take you to find the "right" horse?

    Since I'm finishing up my last year of law school, I'm not in the market for another horse until after I take the bar at the very, very end of July. However, it is fun to look at what's...

    I think you should put a ribbon on his tale. While it would be nice to place well (and I'm not saying that it will or not effect your placing), but if you know he's a kicker, then it's the...

    My first paddock boots were the Ariat Crownes and I haven't wanted to try others ever since. They are absolutely awesome, and I find that I can spend the day in them without my feet hurting. This...

    Adding zippers to tall boots?

    Hi. I have a smaller ankle to calf ratio, so I find it difficult to find tall boots that fit me. Unfortunately, I currently don't have the funds to get a custom pair. I've heard people say that...

    A reasonable price for used stall mats?

    I hope this thread isn't seen as advertising, because I'm not trying to sell mats here. My horse had to be put down last week, and the barn manager mentioned to me that another boarder was...

    Thanks! It feel so unnatural and awkward for me since I'm used to riding a certain way that I was worried that it would still look that awkward. :)

    Ditto on the double-elastic. My holes are uneven by 1 but my horse doesn't seem to mind. I think the elastic distributes the pressure a little bit better. Also, I've never had a problem getting my...

    Compensating for shorter arms?

    I had my first lesson with a new trainer who told me I had shorter arms compared to my lower body. This probably explains why I'm always hunched forward with stiff arms in order to get my hands down...

    I don't really have a cleaning tip, but if you're really concerned about preserving the helmet for shows, then I'd use a helmet cover on non-show days. That, or invest in a less expensive helmet...

    The boots are made by "International Boot Co." I haven't worn them riding yet, but since I could actually manage to get my leg in them, I'm excited.

    I completely agree. A lot of the horses I see in the ring are massive, which makes me feel too big for my fairly solid 16 hand horse --- and I'm about 5'3 and 115 pounds.

    I guess people think it...
