    I despise Dover and avoid them at all costs. I will ONLY buy from them if nobody else has what I want in stock. Their shipping is horrible, customer service is the WORST, and you'll wait at least a...

    I think most people (sellers or rescues) post prices that are above the meat value of the horse to disuade brokers from purchasing. If the horse is worth $300 at auction for slaughter, then anyone...

    My barn is looking for a few quotes to install mirrors in our indoor arena. However, some sort of structure needs to be built above the kick wall to hang the mirrors from. Does anyone have any good...

    I get EXTREMELY upset when I see an instructor allowing students to belittle the school horses. Those horses put up with countless children bouncing, pulling, falling, and generally yanking them all...

    I can't say enough good things about SmartPak. I do a LOT of shopping with them, mainly because I know I can count on their customer service. Every single interaction with them has been positive,...

    If she's going to act as an employee or an independant contractor on your property, at your place of business, you have every right to set reasonable safety rules. I would tell her that she will no...

    I've been in a relationship exactly like you're describing. And No, he never changed. You need to do what's best for you first. It sounds like you would be much happier getting away and being...

    My 21 year old dunks all his hay, all the time. Apparently, this is something he has always done, and the other horse owned by the woman who sold Zee to me does it as well. His bucket is...

    Do you have a local Antares dealer around? I'd take it to someone who knows antares saddles and see what they recommend. I really do like Antares oil. It's pretty light and you can use a lot...

    I haven't been there in years, but Tollbooth in Southampton NJ always had a few used saddles in the back (you never know what you might find). Bucks County Saddlery, in Buckingham PA, about 20...

    I would DEFINATELY recommend a trip to Ricks in West Chester to sit in a variety of saddles. They have about 4 times the number of saddles in the West Chester store compared to their NJ stores, plus...

    Same here. I thought I was one of the best riders at my barn when I was younger (maybe I was, but maybe that's not saying much?!) Now I know just how much I didn't know back then. I've been back...

    Often, I can tell after just one lesson, or conversation, if an instructor is a good fit for me. As an adult rider, I want someone who asks what my goals are, can fully explain things to me (not...

    Agreed. I also do both dressage and hunt seat. I ended up with a close contact saddle that has a slightly deep seat and straighter flaps. It's a lot easier to do dressage in a close contact saddle...
