    I have known many wonderful appys! When I was 14 I was lucky enough to have an old mare who I can only say had some sort of mothering instinct over me. She put up with so much, but didn't mind...
  2. What do you do for fun with your horse?

    I'm extremely lucky to have two wonderful horses - a show horse and an amazing all arounder/trail horse. I'm looking for more fun things to do with my all around guy. We play around in hunter and...

    I enjoyed getting to watch a GP in prime time last night. Even DH sat and watched the whole thing with me :)

    Then I had a dream that DH won the GP and we put the horse he rode up for sale on...
  4. Changed birth control and wasn't ready for the consequences...

    So after nearly ten years on Nuva Ring I changed to Mirena. I love how I don't have to worry about it anymore. However I thought I grew out of my acne years ago and had simply fabulous skin... Turns...

    I think I have a heart horse, but know I had a "heart dog." There's not a day that goes by that I don't think of Bocephus and how he was cruelly taken away from me nearly a year and a half ago. It...

    "I am a majestic being and let's face it, she loves me more than you." His profile pic from mine and DH's engagement shoot:...

    What a mess. The first order of business would definitely be getting my horse moved!

    As far as the vet bills, it sounds like they weren't too expensive and getting a lawyer involved would be far...

    I somehow made it work in college. I was in the same boat as you, my parents paid for school and gave me money for food and gas, but any extras were on me. I worked around 20 hours a week at a pizza...

    Wow OP, that is just insane! She needs out ASAP.

    I would also speak with your employees. They need to be empowered to handle these situations in your absence. DH is the BM at the ranch and he has...

    It seems to me that most dirty stoppers are smart jerks that have figured out how to get their riders off.

    My children's hunter wasn't a dirty stopper, but she was a dirty bucker. Luckily she...

    We always have the horse groomed nicely and waiting in a stall when someone comes to look at one. Then we pull pookie out of the stall and tack him up in the crossties for the prospective buyer to...

    Yeah I'm a little lost too. The board cost seems to be in line with a top show barn, but the lesson cost would get you a "trainer" who is really just some junior in high school showing locally at 2'6...

    My brother in law, who is the general manager of the ranch, saw I was posting on this forum and decided to design a signature for me. It was a pretty random almost stalkerish email. It went something...

    No suggestions from me, just here to commiserate!

    We have this super safe and awesome fencing at the ranch. Here's the website for the fence and the pic at the top with the white fence could...

    For me it depends on whether or not I plan on reselling a horse. We recently had to pass on a unicorn of a gelding. The vet said he would very likely never take a lame step with regular maintenance,...

    I had the exact same diagnosis and OP my ankle felt exactly how you are describing yours.

    I was lucky and still on my mom's health insurance plan at the time. She had major surgery that year and...

    Slight derailment here... We all know the war on dogs in cars has thankfully exploded recently. I am definitely one of those people who will look in cars on hot days to make sure I don't see any dogs...

    SS I'm the exact opposite. I've seen accidents with horses standing on the trailer so long. I don't think either way is right or wrong but I guess you have to pick your poison for day shows or trail...

    We had two of those creepy boarders at a barn I was at when I was 14. Turns out they were both raging alcoholics. We were having a barn sleepover once and one of them showed up around 1 am and body...

    I have a horse out on free lease in VA who killed a chicken named Obama... His leasee told me she figured he was just a republican.

    It sounds like she has been riding for awhile. Is this her first fall? How did she handle the other falls?

    Personally, at 27 I still jump up immediately after any fall because there's still the...

    If I had a cute pony that stuck 14.1 I would have it with a trainer ASAP to get into hunters for resale.

    However, if she's a keeper I would probably take her to a schooling show and maybe do some...

    This thread has reminded me of one of the best CTJ meetings my horse ever had with a trainer who used the "cowboy up" method for lack of a better term. He is a pushy 16.3 Hanoverian that if you gave...
