    My dragging pattern is like everyone else's --- whatever you feel like doing.

    One caveat: The whole first year I used the drag that spread the manure out in the fields. With some cement blocks...

    PS: He has grown into such a handsome young man. And I am sure with the parents he has, he is also kind and caring and thoughtful.

    Sometimes it takes a village, and we were that village. :yes:

    Among the other things I won in the Aiden auction is a picture frame with a picture of Aiden in his first lead line class. :D The number is bigger than he is and his hat looks like a mushroom on his...

    Conversely, if you lose weight and the boots are too big in the calf (this is all purely hypothetical, since I have never lost that much weight :) ) can you put them in the bath tub and let them dry...

    I think there is a difference between "backing" and "starting" a young horse.

    The last 2 horses I had as babies, I used a "cowboy" (very modern and up to date in his methods -- none of the Yee...

    The beneft to jumping on a circle is that you do not DO anything. If he rushes in front of or after the jump, just keep circling. And circling. And circling. A lot of rushing is the horse...

    Jump in a circle and keep jumping until he relaxes. Then jump in a circle turning the other way.

    I am not sure why, but jumping in a circle calms a horse down, but it might take 10 - 12 circles...

    What makes me sadder are the people who enter Rolex so they have a fallback in case they don't get into Badminton. Why do so many US riders go overseas to ride at a 4* when we have one here? It...

    To the poster who sent her horse to H-McG , and then had it boarded by this woman ----- How did your horse get from H-McG to Kate? Was it your choice? Haggard's recommendation?

    if you do barrel racing, you probably have a western saddle? Those are just fine for riding in, and they are made so round that just about any of them can be made to fit using a saddle pad.

    Or,...

    You are just the kind of person that the "Horseless riders and Riderless horses" thread was made for.

    Keeping a show horse in light work

    One of my horses will be getting several months off while I spend my time (and money :D ) on my other horse. I want to let him down, but not have him get fat and blubbery.

    I have decided that 3...

    I think you have 1/2 lost the argument if the show becomes the focus of being neat. And if the mane becomes the issue.

    YEARS ago when I taught, the girls would show up looking like barn rats. I...

    Offer her an option. If she wants to drive over to your barn and ride the horse out of there (on a daily basis), you would love to keep working together. But if that is not a realistic option, then...

    It looks different from last year, but she is still wearing her old hat. :D

    But in this video I noticed something funny -- and I have no idea if it helps/hurts or doesn't affect her performance:...

    Around here, homes above barns are called "hunt boxes". Sounds better. :)

    There were several things that have not been mentioned:
    1. Where are you going to ride? Not much room for a ring.
    2. ...

    I wonder if this kind of a clip job would be allowed to race in a TB race? We already know that a horse with a died tail cannot race that way, but this is not an addition to its color, merely a clip...

    For the first time ever, I realize that I have no control over portion size. When I am 1/2 way through something (i.e. ham and cheese sandwich) I am already planning my second sandwich. Same with...

    I must be an old farte. But when I was in HS (1960's) ANY of this would be cheating.

    I also do not understand what you mean by "zero". These baby horses have a lot done with them before they ever step into the ring. People with unlimited pockets send their 2- 3 year olds on the...
