    Last I knew it was $650 a month for standard board. If that doesn't work out, I know/know-of most of the HJ, event, and dressage trainers in the area, so PM if you'd like.

    I personally really like Colonel and Shane, and their barn atmosphere is pretty friendly. It's definitely nothing fancy though. If you're interesting in doing jumpers then that is the place to go. I...

    Why don't people learn to ride and stop cheating. This is ridiculous. If everyone played fair none of this would be a problem because not only would the horses' health be out of danger, but the...

    That sounds exactly like something my barn would attend, but sadly, there are currently only two of us who are doing jumpers. That could change though by then! I would offer more hunter classes...

    Feed him a Guinness Extra Stout with his grain and see if it helps. One AC is another good supplement. Our Belgian warmblood has anhydrosis and the vet recommended the beer addition to his feed.

    My trainer rode and jumped in hers every day for over two months. She had broken her calcaneous and the Dr. put her in a walking cast. Obviously it will affect your balance and some horses aren't...

    Those "loafers" are actually Sperry Topsiders- VERY in fashion at any yacht club or country club. I think the lack of tailoring and the baseball cap cheapens the look, but if it all fit right, it...

    It's their mistake, and they already put you through a lot of hassle. Take it and run:) I have a fleeceworks and its still in great shape after about two years and lots of use.

    I think #3 is beautiful! I agree with you that the sleeves could be taken in a little bit. Otherwise it looks great!

    No, I don't think that the 5-points restrict shoulder movement at all. I have evented my horses and neither have any trouble galloping out with their 5-points on, and trust me, they get moving. My...

    Another thing to remember is that not every horse is shaped the same way. Sometimes the girth can be VERY tight around the horses belly but up on the sides of the barrel feel fairly loose. Especially...

    Hate to say it, but the reason alot of "Mexican" grooms work so cheaply (atleast here in Texas) is because they aren't here LEGALLY. A person who is here legally can be a little pickier about how ...
