    Trail ride! I was surprised at the quality of the trails during our awful Indiana winter. While the pastures remained awful messes the footing on the trails was good enough for galloping with a few...

    I've always wondered, do they face backwards the entire ride or when you get out of the trailer are they faced backwards in preparation for being unloaded?

    It's fine to make rules after someone arrives. My private barn never had a rule about lunging while other people were riding before a new boarder moved in with total disregard for other people's...

    I am going to say neither horse, keep looking. If you are interested in your bronze you need something that is getting scores in the 60s at 2nd and at least schooling third. Neither horse has the...

    I finished this thread being more confused than before as well!

    I don't understand how you can mine something that doesn't exist, or where they come from. Are we talking the cents from lost...

    I called my mare "my mare" which was easier than "the horse I free lease from her breeder." Everyone knew she wasnt mine technically and i told anyone who asked for more info, but i cried for days...

    People that do their own living quarter conversions do it all the time.

    No, it's not ok to use other people's things because you don't have your own. Like saddles.

    It's best to do it on a really cold day because it heats your home up quite a bit. Also, don't put a chicken in it.

    Once again, how much the OP pays the owner or doesn't pay the owner is really nobody's damn business. I think you're the entitled one here.




    Once again as well, if I were paying half the...

    I had a mare that would refuse to bend her joints when you tacked her up. She had a ton of anxiety about being ridden. It was more of an all over stiffness then a head bobbing thing, which I would...

    I do agree with this. Unless there are rules against the ring being open, or specific rules that people jumping get right of way, you are out of luck.

    So by your definition, a part boarder (who pays half the fees) is only due half as much respect as a full owner? That's ridiculous. SOMEONE is paying the bills and it really isn't anyone's business...

    What because they are a bunch of jealous cows? It's very common to have an owner pay a more experienced rider/trainer to ride their horse including paying for lessons. That is no excuse for poor...

    I have an exotic shorthair but he came from a shelter. Siamese colors with stripes on his legs and tail. He was really meant to be a dog. Fetches, meets people at the door, chases dogs, etc. He's...

    I'm curious, what is the reason people breed to an unproven stallion? Bloodlines? Why not breed to the colt's sire instead?

    The pad is crooked and pulled tight under the saddle and will begin to slip backwards and off as she rides, causing soreness on the back and withers. It's an expensive pad and I'd want to know if...

    I actually never use the keepers on any of my pads, they stay in place without them because my saddles fit. However, my girth always runs over the keepers.

    Does your dressage saddle have long billets or short billets? If it has long billets this girth is way too big.

    Also, the pad doesn't fit right, the girth should go over or through the billet...
