    I would not expect to receive money or be willing to pay for that unless I had agreed in advance-- for example if I was the buyer and had already agreed to pay my trainer to help me find a horse then...

    While I don't think that having a tattoo means anything about a person's character, I find a lot of them hideous and/ or poorly thought out. Grocery shopping at Walmart this time of year is...

    The one day/ no jacket rule is in section EV114.8. For some reason it won't let me copy and paste it into COTH, but it's there.

    Please don't take this the wrong way, but my advice would be to either wait or try and squeeze in another unrecognized HT or two first. We have a lot of really nice unrecognized events in this area,...

    You might also look into volunteering at a retirement farm or rescue, or even with a pony club or lesson type barn that specializes in beginners. I know that PC in particular is frequently in need...

    I would consider it moderately severe, maybe? More so than a regular double jointed or single jointed snaffle, less so a double twisted wire or a sharp slow twist or sharp Waterford. Basically it...

    I have been told this about sizing as well but have not found it to be true. I think you must be measuring the bit in the wrong place, OP. It is just the mouthpiece that is included in the...

    I'm using it on a big strong tb that won't tolerate any bit with leverage, and he seems to like it so far. I have an old loose ring, not the new Gina Miles version but it looks similar.

    For me it's less of fear of injury and more money that is the issue. Plus the weather can be unpredictable and I don't like to take the trailer out if it's remotely icy. And of course it is nice to...

    65 is a rider fall, is that what you're looking at? I don't see anything on the live scores that is obviously a Dr penalty.

    Probably between 150 and 200. My mom had us all on ponies before we could walk, and I am guessing I hit the 10,000 hour mark before I learned to drive. I'm not sure it did much to make me BETTER at...

    In horses twins are usually a result of double/ multiple ovulation. TBs and WBs are significantly more likely than QHs to have this happen, so yes there is probably a genetic component. Mares that...

    How big is your barn? I've always just used a relatively inexpensive boombox type stereo, and it's done fine. I unplug it and put it away when I'm not using it so it so it doesn't get particularly...

    I have never done it with a slant load, but when we've taught yearlings we generally take them in pairs and they do tie (but with breakaway halters/ twine) and go in regular stalls. Weanlings would...

    Definitely whatever she'll eat. My cats have generally disliked the pate type wet food and liked the chunks in gravy. You can try cutting it up a bit more and heating it up a bit so that it smells...

    I've done training and prelim there in the last couple of years. I actually thought they were pretty straightforward and gallopy. It runs the weekend of Plantation, which is why you don't see the...

    I think that paying someone is probably the way to go. That said, one thing that sometimes works with the young stubborn ones (but is somewhat risky for the handler) is picking up one foot at a time...
