    To the poster who sent her horse to H-McG , and then had it boarded by this woman ----- How did your horse get from H-McG to Kate? Was it your choice? Haggard's recommendation?

    if you do barrel racing, you probably have a western saddle? Those are just fine for riding in, and they are made so round that just about any of them can be made to fit using a saddle pad.

    Or,...

    You are just the kind of person that the "Horseless riders and Riderless horses" thread was made for.

    Keeping a show horse in light work

    One of my horses will be getting several months off while I spend my time (and money :D ) on my other horse. I want to let him down, but not have him get fat and blubbery.

    I have decided that 3...

    I think you have 1/2 lost the argument if the show becomes the focus of being neat. And if the mane becomes the issue.

    YEARS ago when I taught, the girls would show up looking like barn rats. I...

    Offer her an option. If she wants to drive over to your barn and ride the horse out of there (on a daily basis), you would love to keep working together. But if that is not a realistic option, then...

    It looks different from last year, but she is still wearing her old hat. :D

    Around here, homes above barns are called "hunt boxes". Sounds better. :)

    There were several things that have not been mentioned:
    1. Where are you going to ride? Not much room for a ring.

    I wonder if this kind of a clip job would be allowed to race in a TB race? We already know that a horse with a died tail cannot race that way, but this is not an addition to its color, merely a clip...

    For the first time ever, I realize that I have no control over portion size. When I am 1/2 way through something (i.e. ham and cheese sandwich) I am already planning my second sandwich. Same with...

    I must be an old farte. But when I was in HS (1960's) ANY of this would be cheating.

    I also do not understand what you mean by "zero". These baby horses have a lot done with them before they ever step into the ring. People with unlimited pockets send their 2- 3 year olds on the...

    Of course, I am not doing the breeding, and it is very easy to spend OPM (other people's money), but I think he is gorgeous. The only things I can find to comment on are his front legs (light boned...

    I could never feel my diaqgonals and I think they are highly overrated. :) But if she is doing eq then she has to learn them.

    Thanks for the tip. I will definitely do this. But not tonight; we are under a tornado warning, so I think I will stay safe and not go hunting racoons.

    Someone who grinds her butt into the horse's back and braces her hands against her horse's mouth. I would not want to have my horse trained that way, nor do I want to learn that kind of riding.
