    You definitely want it heavy enough that it's not going to roll forward under the horse if they hit it. Often, cross country jumps that are portable (such as coops) are staked to the ground to...
  3. Lexington area folks - stall during Rolex?

    We're coming down for Rolex Wednesday - Sunday. I'm looking for a new jump saddle for my young horse and would like to figure out a way to have him close by so I can try saddles easily. Anyone...

    Having had both the certified and non-certified Tipperary, I can say that the certified version is a little stiffer and heavier simply due to its construction, but I find it quite comfortable. One of...

    I have a horse that is built pretty similarly to yours (not the best picture of him, but this gives you an idea of what I've had to deal with:...

    I look forward to seeing the answers to this, as the ones I've been using (I think they're Perri's with elastic, for reference) are too short for my baby. Which I find strange, because he has a...

    Probably means that your horse is mildly sensitive at the acupuncture points that correspond with the front feet. If it's mild and your horse seems comfortable, I wouldn't be too concerned either.

    I went to look at a horse (green TB that landed in a western barn) and when I showed up he was absolutely dripping sweat (this was just over a year ago, so not summer). They tried to tell me that...

    I like Armpocket...sizes to fit even the largest smartphones, and I bought the large size strap which will fit on my arm if I snug it all the way down but will also fit around the top of my calf,...

    My TB has huge withers and it was a struggle to find saddles that fit him off the rack. I have a Black Country jump saddle with a K panel and full front gussets and it's the closest I've come to...

    I went back to finish prereqs at 27, going part time while working full time 2nd shift. Finished those in 2006 and went to vet school in 2007 at the age of 34. I agree with those who said they were...

    Been a while since I've been there, but every time I've ridden there the course has been fair. The biggest issue a lot of people have is that there are a lot of woods, therefore a lot of paths...

    Add me to the list of people that think the online requirement sucks. As many people have already stated, 1) being able to check that information at an event, in an emergency situation, may not be...

    In my (admittedly somewhat limited) experience, they are pretty true to size. My TB gelding, who goes in a medium plus BC Ricochet, generally wears a M to MW in most other brands. I've never tried a...

    That's a bummer to hear, since my baby horse is probably more of a Quantum horse than a Wexford. Bought a Ricochet (thanks Kitt!) for my TB in December 2012, thinking that I would be able to use it...

    Haven't done the volunteer thing that much (one year, and then 1 or 2 years in the vet box) but I've been going since the 80s.

    Agree with Ghazzu on the dental rads. I've heard of horses that had similar weird clinical signs and it was eventually discovered that they had a foreign object (needle, wire etc) embedded in their...

    I've had a similar dream, except my XC course was in an office building and you had to gallop through conference rooms, jumping tables and such. Actually, I've had that dream more than once...

    We had freezing rain/sleet this morning and flurries this afternoon, after a previous prediction of 5-8 inches of snow. The roads are a little slick, but not impassable by any means!

    My dad always says "slicker than snot on a doorknob" or "slicker than deer guts on a doorknob"

    My friend says "son of a motherless goat" and "oh, for crying silently to oneself!" all the time!

    I went to Lowe's and bought a bifold louvered closet door. I hung all my mare's tricolors on one side and all my gelding's special ribbons on the other, with their nameplates at the top. I think it...

    Yep. Me too, although my problem is 100% my job and everything else is pretty good (great husband, nice house, awesome ponies). I did some training last year that will allow me to branch out and...

    I had a tubal last March at 39. No kids, didn't have any trouble convincing my Dr. to do it. I have heard stories of Essure coils migrating, etc so decided to go with the traditional surgery. I had...

    Chiming in a little late here, but agree that it's ridiculous. I send everything except declaws home the same day. I'd rather they be at home where someone might notice if something goes wrong (no...
