    Different brands have different panel depths (that is what I am calling it - referring to how thick the panels are. CWDs, for example, tend to have deeper/thicker panels than Voltaires and therefore...

    I know my independent saddle fitter does not like Voltaires - doesn't feel like they have enough foam to provide enough shock absorption. That said, plenty of horses go well in them, so it it is...

    Their liability is much larger than yours. This is one of the few situations where a contact really seems unnecessary.

    My boyfriend asked what kind of fancy dinner he could take me out to during my trip to WEF - I told him a trip to the Hadfields trailer would be just the trick! I will have to check into Huntley.

    Good to hear - your priorities are definitely in the right order :) After horse shopping last year, I agree with everyone who said to have everything on paper about each horse. I'm super type A, so...

    The fact that they say he will be ready for the 5 year old classes this winter makes me think he is coming 5 soon, which would also explain how he had time to get some miles.

    This situation sounds like it has the chance to go very poorly, very quickly. Your friend should buy a horse that suits her and if it suits you too, great; if not, she can find someone else to do a...

    Swapping in a line is also a big offense. It is usually tied to a lack of straightness or power. For example, my young horse used to swap the last step if he really needed to make up a gap - it was...

    I would wait for the bills to really add up before you put in a claim as you are likely looking at an exclusion for that entire leg going forward. I am still debating filing all of the diagnostics...

    Have things that people can't wait for in the mail - poultice, linament, wraps, UlcerGuard, fly spray, etc - and lure them in that way. It is tough to compete with the internet for a lot of things...

    Hay is quite pricey in FL so you may have trouble with that budget. Unless you are supplying food & bedding, I didn't even know of places in that price range when I lived there in the 90s. Good...

    I agree there should be banned substances with zero tolerance and then substances that have some threshold of allowance. For example, I'd like very much to be able to bandage my horse after a day of...

    Since he has come sound, knock on wood, he is totally sound - no choppiness. Farrier thinks we will see evidence of a heel bruise, hot nail or abscess eventually.

    To me this sounds more like dehydration than anything - even if the manure is coming out normal, the body might be pulling the moisture from other places leading to discomfort. Is there any way with...

  19. What's the longest you would ship in a two horse?

    I'm looking for opinions on how far you would ship in your average two horse trailer. Assume it is appropriately proportioned for the horse but not a box stall. If on a longer trip, do you prefer...

    If you don't like it, don't go. It is far from a perfect parking situation but they don't seem to be having any problem with attendance.

    If you can swing a box stall, I would, but you don't "have" to. Most trailers are configured to do 2 abreast, 3 abreast or a stall within a single area. You can do a slot and a half (2 horses next...
