    I think this dependa on where you live, your horse, and what conditions you're willing to take on. For us, shoes, snow pads to prevent balling, and small welded studs from Jan-March or so. Horse is...

    While I don't think riding with stirrups to the girth is the best way to build muscle -- you will actually feel way loose when you undo the ties, because essentially they are providing you with...

    Hmm, in the late 90s/early 2000s I actually thought this was less the sport of kings than ever before. It seemed like the hothouse flower days (didn't George Morris call them that?) of the 80s and...

    This. OP, your description sounds similar to my mare who had chronic Lyme. She had been treated years before successfully and then, out of nowhere, she went off behind. Titers came back super high....

  17. Replacing lining on leather bag - saddler?

    I don't think you can adopt then put down, because technically you don't "own" the horse. With the rescues I'm familiar with, you can't sell the horse or give them away, you have to give them back to...
