    I made the mistake of assuming that one of my barn friends knew how to properly load a horse. My horse was not the best loader so I was leading him up the ramp. My friend who I had been riding with...

    Reviving this old thread as I sit here and nurse my whiplash and sore back. Ms. Lily decided to launch me into the next county yesterday. And by launch, I mean I went up enough to know how much it...

    Shadyside was one of my favorite boarding barns years ago and I ride Trakehners. So I am a Shadytrake! :) I've had it forever.

    I'm hoping to teach some online courses as a backup in my retirement. I have 20 years experience and my MBA in International Business.

    Thanks! We'd be there faster if not for the idiot non insured motorist who Tboned our old truck. It was paid for in full. Now we have a truck note. At least I had full coverage. So lucky that I had...

    A nice house in a nice neighborhood and two cars. We share one car and live basically in the hood.

    I'd like to move, but my mortgage is under $450 per month. Our goal is to be debt free by 2020.

    Love them. Have 3 pairs of the paddock boots in 3 sizes for the various weather sock thickness. Got all 3 used and have to say that the foot bed is the most comfortable of any paddock I have ever...

    Looking good! I've been flat on my back for two days because I over did my PT recovery. Stupid piriformis, gluteous medius, psoas, and that entire group of muscles!!! They are driving me insane...I...

    I just bought this one. It got great reviews on Amazon. I like the fact that it looks like terrycloth (cotton). That will be a lot cooler.

    Easiest and best way is to put them on and measure. The seam is not always correct which is why the dreaded camel toe happens sometimes. ;)

    I added Smart Gain to my mare's SmartPak after her course of ulcer treatment. But she is also getting fed 4 or 5 times a day because she eats so much and so slowly. We didn't want to overload her...

    I like the Ovation full seats with the slim secret panel. They are 10 1/2" in the rise. I measured both of my pairs. I wouldn't say that they are for high waist, but I have a pretty large butt. ...

    The TK bloodlines are great too. Premium St. Schwarze Schwalbe is a fantastic line that leads back to the best of the best in the TK mares.

    This is a gelding from that mare line. Sommer Sturm...

    I just had a clinic and the clinician used a great analogy. The hand and wrist should be like turning the key in the ignition of your car. If your hands are even with your hips, it will work...

    Oh, well she must be using Barbara's email because that is the address that they sent to me.

    Anyway, I was very pleased with their service and the bridle looks great. This thread is not meant to...

    I had the exact same lesson today! Lily was so being the sucked back brat today. We did think she was a bit muscle sore so I just made her go to the canter and then trot to a different spot before...

    I'm 5'2" and my mare is 17.1hh and growing. She is slightly slab sided but taking a 56" girth already. When she is done, I bet the girth size will be 58" for the hunters. It is nice having the...

    Well I decided to buy the barely used Petrie's. I went back and tried them on with my full seats and thick socks (after riding so that my legs would be nice and swollen). The fit is not perfect on...

    What you want are marine grade brass snaps. They will hold up much better than the cheap metal snaps from the big box stores. Any decent boat repair/marina shop should have them. I've used the...

    I'm really surprised that the mare is hot with Mahagoni and Martini. Both of those stallions tended to throw incredible rideability for the amateur.

    If you want some blood, a decent stud price,...
