    I went through something similar with my young horse this year.

    Frankly, I handed him off to the trainer. The fact that I was hesitating to send him forward meant I was not the right rider to fix...

    A 4 degree drop in temperature is not significant enough to drive behavioral changes, really. The wind might have played a factor.

    You might be overthinking things. We all know riding isn't a...

    Last time I took the Super Shuttle, I spent an hour waiting in the airport and 2 hours crammed in a very full van with a bunch of strangers after 12+ hours traveling. And I paid $60 for that...

    My BO wants an original Coggins on file, since she trailers a lot of the boarders' horses. That's fine for most boarders, but I do a lot of my own trailering and shows. I'm not interested in having...

    My brother got married in Vegas, but they rented a house rather than doing it at one of the casinos/wedding chapels. It was maybe 10-15 minute taxi from the strip, so a lot of the guests stayed at...

    For tires, we went with the big guns -- studded tires. Totally worth the cost and storage effort.

    But they tear the roads up something awful, so probably not legal in most places.

    I got stuck in a parking lot at a friend's wedding reception--the parking lot hadn't been fully plowed before we started, and we got a foot of snow dumped on us during the event. My little two-wheel...

    Translation: "It's Dover's way or the highway, and if you want a better experience, you need to go EVEN MORE DOVER'S WAY."

    Really?

    In 2013 I lost both my horses within a few months of each other. I knew I'd buy a horse again, but for most of 2013 I couldn't find a single ad that interested me.

    Then the day before Thanksgiving...

    There was a horse at a barn that I boarded at who would self mutilate, although not as severely as Doc. He tended to go after his knees. I didn't know him or the owner well, so I couldn't tell you...

    My first horse was an 18 year old TB who was stepping down. We showed in hunters/jumpers/eq/dressage, and he took me from cross rails to 3' and Training Level to Second. He had a wicked sense of...

    My guy is a half Arab; the other half is Saddlebred/DHH. We went to a few schooling shows and did some Intro classes last spring, really just for experience for the two of us. We got a little...

    Unless I'm missing something, that's just the university catalog record and most (none?) of the books are available for download--only checkout from the library itself.

    However, I've been pulling...

    I would have lost several friends last month if I had not censored them on Facebook, so yes, it can be healthier to do that. I was tired, stressed, and had a lot on my plate--the last thing I needed...

    Not always. It may be as simple as someone in a high price area looking at a lower-price area, knowing they can get more bang for their buck, even after factoring in shipping.
