    I would definitely encourage her to go if she is safe to w/t in a show environment. Prepare her ahead of time that 6's for the movements mean she is on the right track, and that the test is a...

    I boarded for the winter at a wonderful place 10 minutes from home. I liked having the indoor with nice footing and the people.

    Otherwise, I was miserable. Most of all, I hated dealing with barn...

    I hate reeling/unreeling the hose to fill water buckets, because I have to sweep first so that my hose doesn't get icky when I'm reeling it back in. And yes, I'm aware that I have OCD issue. :)

    IMHO, Laura Graves had a lovely ride, and hopefully she and Verdades have a long career! I think as she gains more experience she'll be pushing for that extra bit of 'brilliance' that will give all...

    Just watched Charlotte and Laura's rides - both lovely. Still looking for the video of Steffen.

    Its a silly little thing, but I really like that Laura strokes Verdades after the ride instead of...

    GFG - I'm sorry. I wholeheartedly agree that in some cases, it's the best decision to cut off interaction with a toxic family. I was physically abused by both my brother and stepfather for the...

    Family dynamics can be very strange. I have a very close knit family for the simple fact that its a value passed down from every generation to the next. Even where there has been unpleasantness,...

    I think that the horse sales/commissions business model has a lot to do with it.

    Trainers benefit a lot from having specialized horses with a high sales/lease turnover rate. Every time a rider...

    OP, first and foremost, you need to decide how YOU want to enjoy riding and then just work and ride with that goal in mind, regardless of where you are or what kind of barn you are in. If you don't...

    BTV - What am I not understanding?

    Am I wrong about BTV? I see it everywhere and I've always thought/read/heard/been taught that BTV is a sign that hands are pulling back into a false frame instead of the horse being sent into the...

    I LOVE printed maps. They're my favorite souvenier, when DD travels somewhere I haven't been (which is a LOT) she always brings me home a map. I love having that big printed picture of where...

    IMHO, Yelling is about stress or anger management, or both, and it often takes a lot of work on both the part of the yeller and yellee to improve the behavior.

    It's definitely not just a man...

    My dad's family is Cape Verdean, so we're a very multi-cultural family. My first lesson in 'discrimination' happened when I was around 5 years old. My aunt (white) and her husband (black) owned a...

    Mine is HOME, so I don't care. As long as we have a FEL, snowblower, heated buckets, winter hay supply and a pallet of bedding, winter is a piece of cake. :)

    Definitely would consult a lawyer.

    IIWM, due to the fact that the horses are aggressive/destructive, I'd also think the BO is perfectly within their rights to significantly hike the board rate or...

    You can definitely find oak at most of the Amish mills in PA/MD. It can be a pain, as they don't have phones, etc., so you have to drive to the mill and check on their supply, but all of our fencing...
