    The fix really depends on what you want to do with the horse and how much work you want to put into him. A lot of people just sell their horse when things go wrong.

    Yeah it's weird! I quoted you and something else popped up. I didn't type that name!
    Makes sense what you are saying. Kind of stinks to pick a school based on it has a riding team!

    I am not surprised that the NCAA would recommend gettjng rid of equestrian sports. It's basically not fair! The kids that get on the teams are the ones show at A rated shows doing things like medal...

    I am just curious about why you didn't like riding on the team? It seems like a full scholarship would make it a pretty sweet deal! Why would riding on your own be better? Did they require too much...

    i will watch it later. i would love to see this, because all my ideas of what needs to be done with feet have been challenged since i bought my latest horse.

    I am not really sure that you cannot go higher without shoes, because I am not good enough to go higher yet. Its not because I keep my horse barefoot, but because I am not a good enough rider to...

    Please do not twist my words. I did not say that farriers shoe all horses because they are greedy and I did not generalize that All horses can go barefoot. I did not stereotype farriers as...

    People are so convinced that horses have to have shoes for support. But it actually causes horse to have more concussion. If your horse is sound without shoes, there is no need to put them on for a...
