    It IS a ton of fun- my mare, cutting lines, also tends to be a bit nasty and, um, toothy if the bovines don't do her bidding. My gelding on the other hand just wants to be their friend. The first...

    Wow. Those of you with zero experience working in the federal government do like your (bogus) conspiracy theories.

    The press chose to characterize BLM as 'backing down.' So one journalist's...

    According to local press coverage, the rancher owes $1.6 million or so in grazing fees and so BLM decided to round up and sell the cattle. Resistance from several fronts, not least of which for Utah...

    It is expected that a stag will be taken on each hunt. Much effort and thought goes into selecting which stag will be taken- it's part of overall herd management. The huntsman kills the stag after...

    I vote for Coke, I mean, straight load. I have hauled in multi horse slants that were too confining even for smallish horses- and for hauling hundreds of miles as I am wont to do, my gelding would...

    Oh, heck, when I rode in France the indoor was for sure no bigger than that, and we had lessons with 8-10 people, flat AND jumping. Jumps typically set on the diagonal and we did 4'6" often enough,...

    I'm planning on a Buck clinic myself this summer if all goes well. I have not seen Joe Wolter in action, but have read a few of his articles and he strikes me as a good hand- I'd be inclined to...

    Well, if he were mine and accustomed to competing in a full bridle, that's what I'd use. It's a tool that has sadly been lost over the years, but there's nothing better frankly than being able to...

    Beau makes a valid point. A mare I showed in western pleasure and other events for a friend in the late 60s/early 70s gave us fits about picking up the correct lead, or so we thought. We finally...

    You never know until you try. The converse is also true, having a horse that you are 'sure' will hunt just fine, who just doesn't take to it.

    For horses who 'take to it,' be aware that canines as...

    Indeed more than 5" is tough to find in western bits and others have given good resources. My gelding actually needs a 6" bit, go figure, I've only had one other in 50 years that needed one that...

    Sad news about Willie- though on reflection I haven't seen his ads lately. Had a nice ride with him in Connemara, just made arrangements to ride one of his spare horses for one day on one of his...

    If she is overmuscled on one side from 'just' doing barrels mostly, I'd work her much more to right than left for quite a while before expecting change. I had a one eyed horse, missing left eye,...

    She was out with Farmington the very first time I hunted, fall of 1971- and I would daresay she still out-rides 95% of us mere mortal foxhunters.

    Yes, way back in the day, when shows went lonnngggg into the night, I'd just park and nap in the warmup arena and ask someone reliable (as in not a competitor who wanted me to miss the class!) to...

    Angelico, I am a Texan born and raised, don't live there now, but your gross and inaccurate generalizations are insulting to all horsemen of all disciplines.

    I honestly can't say from reading...

    You live in Washington state, so I assume you would want to go with Woodbrook Hunt, only pack in the state. Their web site is very helpful for background information- they are a drag pack and all...
