    I don't know if there are any public lakes where you can rent boats, but Canoe Kentucky is based in Frankfort and will rent him a kayak, drop him in, and he can either float/paddle down to their home...

    As for your original question, others have made it clear that it's perfectly fine to sit the working trot at BN. The only places that I know of where you must post is on the stretchy circles. In...

    I wholeheartedly agree with what others have said- at the lower levels, it's all about aptitude and/or show record. A smart buyer will look for a show record and will likely want to take the horse...

    I read that different- that she uses a bonnet because she doesn't want to clip her own horse's ears and it covers up the hairy ears. But hey, I could be mis-reading it.

    I use fly bonnets at home...

    I'm in Area VIII, within an hour of the KHP. I'll admit that I feel very spoiled to be so close to such a great venue. It's really the only nice venue in Lexington (one show does hold its XC at a...

    Advice for Rehoming Rabbits

    I feel like a terrible person and like I'm letting down these animals, but I have two adult rabbits that I've decided I need to rehome. It's a male and female who are bonded to each other and...

    Having been at a seemingly nice, but actually terrible place, it may be terrifying, but good places do exist. I think it's practically impossible to find some place that fits everything you want...

    I haven't bothered doing this in some time, but I had amazing luck with a big rubbermaid bin filled with about 1/2 cup of powdered dish washer detergent and 1/2 cup of oxiclean. I let my two or three...

    No idea about the EquiCrown, never heard of it. I like my compression socks from Schneider's. I've successfully used them in the trailer underneath shipping boots and at/after events. They make my...

    I've even gone so far as checking the IHSA rulebook and it seems to indicate that you're eligible so long as you're an undergrad.

    But does anyone know what the rule is if it's your second round...

    I purposely rode my horse for years on the wrong diagonal. He was more balanced that way. Our tests sucked anyways (horse was nuts), but I don't think being on the wrong diagonal made the scores any...
  12. Tell Me About Your Fake Tail- and Where to Find Used??

    Just what the title says- please tell me about your fake tail. I came over here since I figured more hunter/jumpers are likely to have fake tails than eventers, but it is for my event horse. I've...

    Just remember what a pain it can be to set up/take down an entire arena. How often will you be moving it?

    No comment on the link you posted, as I've never ridden in one like that. My barn has...

    I've only scanned this thread, but it seems like no one's brought up the luxury that some free leases (depending on the contract) offer in being able to easily get rid of a horse if things go south....

    I don't have a dog in the fight and have no statement on the appropriateness of this thread. But to everyone who says that if it was so terrible she should've moved sooner, it's not so impossible or...

    Uhm, it's been my experience, especially owning a horse that got way too deep in the contact, that judges HATE that. Trust me, I have the 50s on my record to prove it. My lowest scores with both my...

    Whatever you decide on, you should include some sort of horse treats. The best award I've ever gotten was a collection of an embroidered cooler and basket FULL of apples and peppermints. The cooler...

    I didn't read all the replies, but this sounds just like a situation I was in. I was horse-less and desperately wanted back in the game, but my trainer was willing to do NOTHING unless is was...

    Like 2DogsFarm said, treat your lessons as homework. I'm really only able to afford 2 lessons a month, so I REALLY pay attention at those lessons. And while I'm not so good at being consistent with...

    From my experience buying this summer:

    1) Have a suitable place to ride for the intended purpose and level of training of the horse. It sounds like you've got this covered, but if anyone else...
  21. $40 Smartpak free shipping- hard and fast rule?

    So I think I've sold myself on the concept of Smartpaks, despite declining to use them for several years. (Mostly has to do with them not offering a lot of the supplements I feed, which I would...

    FYI it's criminally illegal to write bad checks. I'm not sure about CA, but in my home state it can be a felony (theft by deception, I believe in excess of $500), which can lead to large fines, 1-5...

    If you count the saddles I use, my ratio is a nice, even 1:1. I have one jump saddle and one dressage saddle for use on both horses. Bridles and especially saddle pads are a much sadder story- my...
