    I think the whole thing sounds great: location, horse facilities, etc. And as so many have said there are lots of ways to spruce up, lead the eye to the entry, etc., and there are bunches of...

    How about "Can't Make Up My Mind" by the New Shining? Just kidding - I like Mystery Tour.

    Back in the old days she was addled but she at least looked polished and professional. Now she doesn't even look good - shiny skin and flesh-colored lipstick? No doubt some will take this as sexist...

    I agree with NJ Rider, the theme should be dependent on what your goal is and, therefore, who your target audience is. If it's getting boarders obviously you'll want to show off all the fabulous...

    Re Tryon/Landrum you may not be looking hard enough and a lot depends on exactly what you're looking for in terms of amount of land and what type of amenities (house size, type of barn, fencing,...

    My Hi-Tie is on the non-DR door side. I'm sleeping up in the gooseneck, which has windows on both sides, so I can look out at him if I hear anything weird. Where you mount the hi-tie on your trailer...

    I was being ironic - and he certainly did get criticized in election year when the gas prices were high. But that's the way things go: anytime something is negative it's the president's fault, and...

    I may be the last living American to take Gregg shorthand and boy has that been an extremely useful tool during my many years since high school.

    I also think kids should be taught to add,...

    Geez if he didn't go anywhere he'd be criticized for holing up in DC and not being willing to get out among the people.

    In the meantime, we have a growing economy, declining unemployment, low gas...

    No actual movement because the HiTie has a bit of flex in it that absorbs the movement. I can hear him moving around sometimes - mostly if he pulls his small-hole haynet away from the trailer and it...

    A lot of people use Carri-Lite Corrals but that didn't work for my horse at all - in my initial trial (at home in the pasture) he put his head down to graze under the bottom rail and then raised his...

    I agree that gray would be preferable to green. Our barn and other outbuildings are all rustic red with deep brown trim "burnished slate," which is a dark grey/brown, not a chocolate brown.

    I live in a horse neighborhood (all with own barns, not a central barn) and it's great - always somebody around to grab the loose horse(s); trade the occasional horse care/feeding; find someone to...

    When I lived in Texas and rode Western, most if not all Western riders used a neck rein rather than a direct rein as English riders do. Not sure how you pull a bit through when you're neck reining.

    To me there's a lot of difference between admiring someone's abilities on a video and actually having a person work with you and your horse in real life. I would probably give #2 a chance, as it...

    If it makes you feel better, at least 90% of the trail riding in my area is done in an English saddle... and we've got tons of trails and trailriders.

    Re Tryon, I agree with MVD re Tryon/Landrum. I wrote an article in June 2014 on the economic impact of equestrian industry here and can give you numbers: 9 mobile vets serving Tryon/Landrum and a...

    There's a reason romance novels are so popular... you've just got one going on in your head. Not to diminish what you're feeling, I think it's just the fantasy lure of the one who got away, forbidden...

    As many problems with saddle fit as we see on COTH, I think I'd stick with your current saddle and clean it off after each ride, rather than trying to find an additional one. JMO.

    I have been wearing Blundstones with the wide toe/tread on sole for about 10 years for riding and and the soles have never caused any kind of problem for me. Love them. I'm on my third pair. Not only...

    I did it in 2011 and my insurance did cover it. I believe they will still cover IRAP but did not cover injections in general even back then. My understanding was that "injections in general" had...

    We're lucky to have a local "cowboy" rider who people in a situation like yours can get to take their questionable trail mounts out. I mean cowboy in the good sense: grew up riding; calm;...

    I have lorapetalum at my house and I do love it but it gets very, very bushy - in all directions. So if you have it at a ring you might want to give it wide berth or plan on much trimming. If you...
