    I had a portable compressor. It died after inflating one tire. I do think I'll replace it because it's a good thing to have in the trailer. We ended up buying a compressor to have at the barn, as...

    Full chaps are even better than full seat breeches :)
    Any advice I might give has already been pretty much covered. I have found it helpful to think about steering through a skid with your...

    Where are you in MA? I've been out with Tanheath Hunt from CT, and their fixtures are not too far if you're south of Worcester.
    I attended the New England Hunts hunter trials this past fall and...

    If the difference in cost is only $1,000, go for the side ramp. As an earlier poster said,if you get the side ramp and never use it that's better than not getting it and wishing that you had one....

    My previous horse had a monster buck and tossed me many times. I'm happy now to ride a pony who has a much more rideable buck :) :

    I've asked our barn owners to allow us to use the heater for our 100 gallon outdoor tank and they have refused due to the cost. Unfortunately where I live the cost/KW hour is vastly higher than...

    My barn has them. We just unplug them during the day when horses are out. The barn is generally warm enough that the buckets only get a little bit of ice during the day. This week might be...

    Just my 2 cents...sounds as though this boarder needs to sell or lease Chaz and NOT get another horse. She has confidence issues, she has big medical bills and she doesn't get out to the barn. Or...

    Don't wait any longer to get started. I tell everyone that getting a trailer changed my equine life. I've made many new friends and done loads of fun stuff I couldn't do before.
    If there is a...

    I'm sorry this has happened to you (and to your BIL). It's always the few rotten apples that ruin it for everyone. Of course the best case is always when the good hunters find out who the bad guys...

    I have a Shires tweed coat and I love it. I'm sure it will hold up for as long as he can fit into it, and then you can sell it on to another family. Glad you found one.

    My sister lived in that area for quite a while (Santa Rosa). Real estate is extraordinarily expense, and commuting times are long. Are you wedded to owning property? You might be better off...

    I have to admit when I read the title of your post I was picturing a new "reality" show on Discovery or A & E. I'm sorry the reality was not as light & entertaining as that. It stinks to have to...

    Thank you everyone! Looks like Trojan is out of stock for the winter but I'll start looking around here. I'll also check with my relatives who are dairy farmers, they might have a local lead for me.

    That sounds like what we need! Do you know where to find one? I've also looked into something that would just keep the water moving but the pumps require more electricity than I can scare up with a...
  18. Has anyone seen a propane heater for a stock tank?

    Where I board the paddocks are quite a long ways from the barn. There is no water line out to the paddocks, so we have to haul water using the gator, and there's no electricity there to run an...

    Those ranchtanks look interesting but they're pricy. A friend told me that their neighbor used a pump to circulate air around the docks at his lake house to keep it from freezing so he could leave...

    "Trainers" or "Clinicians" like this continue to exist because people continue to pay them. Too many riders mistake harshness for useful criticism or believe that a certain level of accomplishment...

    I vote for the tank with a heater. I wrapped my tank with 2" thick upholstery foam that I slid into waterproof contractor bags to insulate the tank. We were able to unplug the heaters during the...

    1920's house with oil furnace and old fashioned cast iron radiators (not steam). Programmable thermostat is at 58 at night, comes up to 64 for wake up, down to 60 during the day when I'm at work and...

    As fourmares says, it depends on the horse. And sometimes on their mood. My pony had that setup. I think she's just laze. In the heat of summer or the cold of the winter she makes a mess of her...

    eBay and Craigslist will both have something to offer. I was in the Smith Worthington store last week and they are clearing out their paddock boots, which are reasonably priced at $29.95:...

    Does hilltopping mean foot followers or those who go on horse but don't jump?
    Hilltoppers are riders who follow the action more slowly and at a distance. It is often (but not always) riders who are...
