    Well, race horses aren't trained in the same way for the same type of events that a western horse is, either. Race horses run. You aren't asking them to learn all the physical skills necessary to...

    My small animal vet has stopped using LVTs at the front desk and now hires just plain receptionists off the street. Maybe they had a kitten growing up, but that's the extent of their small...

    It's because most western horses ridden in a snaffle DON'T use a cavasson. If you are going to show a junior western pleasure horse in a snaffle, you can't use a cavasson, as an example.

    My homebred youngsters got sent to the trainer in February of their coming 3-year-old year. If everything went according to plan, they were sent to a couple of late season, more local shows to hang...

    I dunno...the fact that the buyer called you makes me think that she's expecting you to do something about it.

    Frankly, as someone who's bought many horses over the years, 30 days isn't a whole...

    Hay is fed 4 times a day where I board. I think it's 6:00 am, 11:00 am, 4:00 pm and 10:00 pm (final barn check). Hay is kept in front of the horses at all times, or close to it. BO keeps local...

    Pat yourself on the back and take pride in the fact that you've bred the sort of horse that upper level riders/trainers/breeders are looking for.

    Laminate or hardwoods throughout the house if you can swing it. No carpet. I found that helps a lot.

    I alternate Frontline Plus and Advantage II every other year. It's been working so far.

    You are making the assumption that a horse trained as a jumper somehow has an advantage in the HUNTER ring. Not so. I actually think it's the rare horse that can jump for several years or more at...

    Your local tack store should be able to put your boots on the stretcher(s) for you. Most will do it for free, whether you bought the boots there or not.

    I disagree with this. For a whole host of reasons, horses can get a late start in life. Green, to me, means green to the hunter ring, period.

    I've stated my position before...I have absolutely...

    If you think she's "extremely alert" now, just wait until she has a foal at foot.

    We've found that breeding an extremely quiet, laid-back mare could actually make her anxious after the foal was...
