    I won a nice chunk of change in 2011 through my breed's sport horse incentive program. Otherwise, ribbons and saddle pads it is!

    The video description states she's doing a half pass and it looked like one to me (abliet shallow) after doing the 1/2 turn. She certainly moved back to an inside track with true bend and sideways...

    I made a move recently and went 100% trainer-less from July until I had a lesson again in late Dec. I think you'll be surprised at just how much you can accomplish. The going is slower at times...

    Terrible quality pic but... This was our first centerline ever at 2nd level and first show of the year. After an epic spook we managed to go off course after X by riding the wrong movement. Still...

    I know someone with the Ovation shad. It's not a work of art but it's a lot nicer than I expected. It fits well and has lasted several seasons with machine washing. I certainly can't tell it's a...

    I won't even pretend I know how to wire it, but we have a camera in our trailer to monitor the horses when we travel. I plug into the truck and bam there they are complete with sound. The guy we...

    Keep in mind the floor plan of my trailer too. It's a 4H GN frame that was custom built into a 2H. It's really big compared to a "normal" 2H GN. We had to have it weighed to get it registered so I...

    I think the 5mph thing may be GMC. The dealer told us about it when we were shopping. We ended up with a new 2011 Dodge though and couldn't be happier (replaced a 1999 Dodge with 375k miles). No DEF...
