    I hear you OP.

    I have T-Rex arms--that's no picnic either. I can either have short reins or a bend in my elbow but not both. ;)

    And while my legs are relatively long for my body, it's mostly...

    Steffen is about 5'8" give or take. He rode my horse at a clinic and the stirrups only went down one hole. I'm 5'6" with longish (for height) legs.

    So sorry!

    In contrast to cats, once dogs are in serious renal failure it is far less manageable for long term quality of life.

    I would check out http://www.iris-kidney.com which is *the*...

    I'm sorry, that's all I can say. I'm so white I'm translucent, but do not judge anyone based on color or SES or whatever. I think we're all just trying to get along.

    Funnily, my grandmother, who...

    My grab strap has "stretched" with time and if I lay it out in front of the pommel is pretty far forward. I agree that many of them are too short to be of much use.

    I have also used the breast...

    I started going grey at 21. My mother at 16. Her dad was totally white by 35.

    I'm 45 now, and am probably 75% grey, can't say for sure. I am very pale skinned and it looks horrible and aging. I...

    Thanks! I am actually not showing in the championship portion (which might make a few competitors happy ??). I will be down the centerline in our first PSG. Coach thought we were ready, and honestly...

    I have a Hungarian (sport book) gelding. His pedigree contains a decent amount of Shagya (as do many--most?--Hungarian bred). Of course, being sport book, he is basically a half-bred, the other half...

    Laurie,

    If you need to try different bits, I have a set up that is more "rare" that I'd be happy to let you borrow. It's the Lorenzini titanium bradoon and low port curb. SUPER light--less than ¾...

    I hear ya. I just moved to a small farm. I'm mid-40s and single (divorced) too. I work and have the farm and a small child. I've lived on small farms with my horses in the past, but with a roommate...

    Mold in the barn

    I've moved to a rental property with a barn. The barn is structurally sound but was lacking in love for a while--years. I've been in there since the beginning of July now (so about 6 weeks). It seems...

    I have found some folks with indoor rings, but not close enough to go on a work-night. I do have options for winter if the ring/field is unrideable for long stretches of time. In general, he gets...

    Thanks Redmond! We are going to do our first PSG in September (I'm so excited I could pee, lol). My horse is just 10 and I've done most of his training myself (I have a coach, but she won't ride him...

    The LED lights? Those are affordable enough to get 2, 3, or even 4. My property is surrounded by woods, but I would need to be near the barn for a power source. Regardless, if I even had a 20x40 area...

    Thanks guys. I did a quick look on Lowe's website. Any idea how many lumens one would need to ride, and how many of the lights? I'm thinking 2 would be fine if they were bright enough.

    How about...

    When do you ride?

    Currently sunrise is 6:22am. If my arse is in the tack at that time, I can't ride even 30 min and cool/clean up/shower/child to school on time (her drop off is 7:00am). I get...

    My custom L'Apogee is two-toned brown and black. Not just piping, the whole skirt and flap over the stirrup bars is dark brown, the rest of the saddle black. To be honest, I'll bet no one notices...

    I have used them. FANTASTIC service. Easy, dress was beautiful, etc. I will use them from now on every time I have an "event", because I have a closet full of dresses that I've only worn once or...
