    Given a choice, backwards every time. That's why I ordered a backwards-facing Hawk trailer. Horses love it!

    I hauled my little Arab in an Imperial trailer with the center divider removed. He'd...

    We always hauled with horses saddled at the ranch, usually with bridles on as well. How tack didn't get destroyed that way, I'll never know, because we'd just load five or six horses in the stock...

    OP, hope things are going better for you.

    I've been bucked out of all kinds of saddles -- AP, dressage, Western and Aussie. One of my favorites for riding a buck or a spook is a Prestige 2000D...

    Gloria, I've saved all my tests as far back as the Dark Ages -- before home computers were a glint in Jobs's or Gates's eyes. Sometimes its fun to look back and see how the tests evolved and how...

    Why all the exclamation points, Crypto? It's like "shouting" on the Internet. You still haven't told anyone what YOUR credentials are, either.

    I was attracted by your thread title. For sure such horses exist! I have a student -- a Para, in fact, who rode jumpers for a while. She did well, though one leg, like yours, didn't always work...

    I just reserved one -- but they need 9 more orders to produce the design. C'mon, COTHers!

    Same here! I was taught that dismount by a Hungarian who attended the SRS (probably the sister school in Budapest). I still dismount that way, unless I'm dismounting from the "wrong" side. Which I...

    Having done cattle gathers, brandings, vaccinations, dipping and all the rest, I don't think of it as a "vacation". The real deal is hard work.

    We used to get "cowboys" from Denver (friends of one...

    I've never paid more than $4350. They've all been "prospects", though.

    I took part in group lessons in Minnesota at two different barns. Other days, I took privates or semi-privates. In the group lessons, we'd ride "follow the leader" style -- if the leader was told to...

    I just purchased a bumper sticker that says" Am I driving too close in front of you?"

    KL Carp, yes Cavallo does have a coat in the lighter, washable fabric. It's a beautiful coat. I too prefer the longer coats and, much as i loved my old Pikeur, could no longer stand the warm wool.

    Very sensible post. Thank you.

    Too late for that, don't you think? Why just Texas? How about Ohio, too?

    It's very simple. Flights from affected West African nations should have been barred immediately. isolate the source, combat it AT the source. Too late now.

    I also don't understand why she couldn't have used her "outside" voice to school you both. At the very least, YOU should have gotten the earphone first since you rode first. Once you're ready to...

    I had a colonoscopy when I was in my early 50's. Never again. IMO, no need to, as colon cancer does not run in my family. I had three tiny benign polyps. I figure it took me 50 years to grow those...

    Agree. I leave my guy's whiskers on, showing or not. Coach and some of her other riders tsk-tsk over the whiskery wonderfulness. I do not care. Those are feelers and I think horses need them.

    I'm considering a roach on my Hanoverian for next year. We do dressage. My coach's old horse was roached for most, if not all, of his dressage career, but he had a WIIIIIDE mane. Me? I'm just sick...

    I put my lazy Hanoverian gelding on Lixitinic. His energy level is MUCH better now.
