    Check craigslist. This is not a good time of year to be looking for hay, not much left out there.

    I go right by a few deer stands on my way to the trails. Sometimes hunters are up there. One thing to remember, is that bow hunting is very different from gun, and gun season is very limited. The...

    It's hard to make a horse relax and be quiet. I usually work my horse away from the distraction, and make the distraction my resting spot. So I'll do a good bit of work, and then when I feel like...

    He is a big man! He seemed to be a little intimidated by the horses at first. I was surprised at how much of the company Churchill Downs is really NOT about about the racetrack Churchill Downs.

    I call those the "blur years," when the kids are young and you are so busy that the next thing you know they are asking for the car keys. Your time is truly not yours at this point in your life, so...

    Can a truck get to the barn easily? Hay deliveries, blacksmith, etc? Where is hay stored and how many bales can be stored? What will you do with manure - compost and spread, have it hauled away? ...

    I have a top wood board with three strands of electric tape around one paddock with board fencing for the other paddocks. Getting ready to redo the fencing as it's old, and will do electric tape for...

    I agree with the poster who said that you need to stop asking for her opinion - it opens the door for her to impose on you. She is lucky to have a sister like you who cares about how she feels. But...

    Consider some Regumate - it can go a long way in helping recalcitrant mares if the issue is somewhat hormonal.

    I'd go back to ground work with her, she appears to be well embedded in her habit and...
  11. Judged Pleasure Trail Rides in the Mid Atlantic Area

    I'm looking to do some judged trail/obstacle rides in the MD/PA/VA area this year. Is there one single website to check for events, or do you have to join/check multiple associations to get access...

    Many of you missed my point. I never said that the owners and vets are best suited to train a race horse, they are simply the best educated and the pathetic excuses that I hear do not excuse them of...

    Lynwood, great comments. When I see a lightly raced three or four year old, the first thing I think is "not sound." When I see an older horse who raced and hit the board consistently for several...

    rcloisonne, I'm really amazed at your snarkiness. If you put the education level of the owners and vets up against the education level of the trainers, assistants, foremen, exercise riders, grooms,...

    Saratoga, I agree with your post. However, in any sport, any time the prize becomes the most important part of the process, you will have cheaters and ethical issues. Drugs and ethics are problems...

    There is a line between keeping a competition horse comfortable and attempting to mask unsoundness. People who do not understand that do not belong around horses, but weeding those people out is the...

    And what is up with the thyroid medication???? I have fat pony on it for metabolic purposes to help keep her fatness under control. I can't imagine giving it to a race horse - I'm always more...

    It's up to the owners and the veterinarians to clean up the sport, if it's even possible. I have no qualms about picking up the phone and questioning charges on any bill. I'm sure most of the big...

    Wishing there was a scientifically sound and statistically acceptable comprehensive study on Lasix. I'm not sure it's even possible to get it done. Where permitted, just about all the horses get...

    TC Senior is my go-to feed when I get skinny TBs to rehab or rehome. They put weight on fast, their feet improve, their coats look great and they don't get crazy. I also had a really old white appy...

    I'm a little confused - you are feeding your horse 55 lbs of hay a day, or that is for all three? And I'm not sure why you are feeding three different types of salt/mineral supps! Simple is best. ...

    You are the one riding the animal, so you should absolutely get what you want within your budget. And if you have confidence issues, get what you feel good on! The only thought I'd add is, what are...

    I'd focus on the hind end, with flat work including lots of lateral work. Will she move her haunches to the right easily, or is she resistant? Maybe when she is going fast she can't step her left...
