    I think Sandy M. has a good idea. I think there should be a senior rider of the month, or at least the quarter. Senior riders, or senior horses, or century riders. Just make it over 55 for the...

    I would be supportive and delighted that she is interested in what happens to be a healthy and sustainable diet. I guess I'm not seeing any problem with this.

    And I would use her "current phase"...

    I am thinking of this, as I am getting tired of having to push my glasses back up on my nose all the time while riding. I don't think this helps my horse stay on the bit. :-) And I don't even want...

    I think we have about a foot, suburbs 25 miles west of Boston. Gorgeous sculpted drifts! It looks to me like it's about done, though you can't tell what's falling and what's just being blown around....

    With the lovely fluffy white snow from yesterday's storm, I am able to see that my horse and her pasture mate, who share a huge field 24/7, have moved in a circle maybe 30 feet in diameter from the...

    Don't even try to remember anything other than left, right, stop, and go forward. The horse is different, the trainer is different, your body is different. As others have said, the connection between...

    Seriously, Goodhors? Well, bless your heart.

    Pony club is one ideal for horsemanship. However. A very large number of non-pony-club people have experienced longstanding relationships with their...

    I was taught not unless it's above 60. In north central Massachusetts, that means Madame has not had a bath since October, and will likely not have one until May.

    She smells the same. When she...

    Totally what Lady Eboshi said --- EXCEPT that it's probably worth it to at least ask such folks to move out of the way of other riding styles. I don't think the OP actually asked, and it's totally...

    24-yo Arab, in light work due only to my schedule. Has slowed down/lost stamina over the past year, but still has "it." She would probably come back to full power if my schedule permitted more...

    My understanding is you need to take the pee spots out daily, as well. Pee and poop, both out, every day. The advantage of the pellets is that the pee spots tend to stay more contained, so you're...

    Another vote for simply calling out, "Hey, do you guys mind if I use the rail? Thanks so much, I really appreciate it!" Chances are that once the others realized they were in your way, they would...

    Well, OP, I remember how excited you were when you found this pony, and I believe you said something about how while he was not what you thought you had been looking for, you got on him and had a...

    Well, I don't think mud and water will hurt your saddle if you clean it afterwards. Think of the weather in Ireland, Scotland, England. Their saddles seem to survive. I think your saddle can handle...
