    I don't really see it as an excuse, that's just the way the horse runs. Fitness probably played a role, but I don't think it was the main factor.

    Look at his past races. First in eight of his 14...

    Thanks! Just in time to see Untapable win the Cotillion. I saw her in person at the Oaks and she is just stunning. Hoping Chrome has a good trip in the Pennsylvania Derby.

    I'm curious as to the horror at the step-up/down trailers. Is it just a potential risk issue or what? Not trying to be snarky, but I've never met anybody with such a strong opinion on it.

    I used...

    Well, I was about to suggest this girth, which was the only girth that worked for my super sensitive mare, but I reread your post and saw that you've already tried neoprene.

    I have a 2H slant BP with tack room. My very large (16.2) paint mare fit in it no problem, as does my sorta large (16H)TB. Would it fit a draft or warmblood? Probably not. It does do a great job with...

    Ugh... What about any of that would make anyone think that that is an appropriate training method?

    It does get better, but it takes discipline. My only debt now is about $25000 in student loans. When the economy tanked a few years ago I was lucky and kept my job, but my hours got drastically cut. ...

    Couldn't have said it better myself. I've attended symposiums where I gained as much knowledge through the lecture and demonstrations as I have riding in clinics that cost more. It does depend on the...

    Find a good tailor and take them an example of what you want or pictures from all different angles. It is important to find a tailor (someone who makes clothes) rather than someone who just alters...

    Nope. Live in Eugene and it is actually worse than what you described.

    We do have some good restaurants; Sushi Pure at 5th St Public Market and Taco Loco on 7th are two of my favorites. Lots of...

    I swear by Smith Optics for sunglasses and ski goggles. High quality and a lifetime warranty. I have the Parallel Max with the grey mirrored lenses.

    I wear them running and riding (even jumping)...

    Ok, I've been watching a ton of 1/2 Arab halter videos the last few days:D. I've seen a mix of cable halters and halters with a bit of a wider noseband in either patent leather or engraved silver....

    I'm with the other posters that have speculated that say she looks like a mare just coming back into work after having a foal. The fact that the person who has the mare hasn't been good about sending...

    I love my Ariat belt. I will admit that I wasn't willing to spend the money on myself, but I was thrilled when my SO gave it to me for Christmas. I wear it with jeans and with breeches. It is a well...

    Ebay? If it is a Mattes or Christ they usually go for close to new price on Ebay if they are only gently used. Maybe one of the tack sales pages in her area on facebook. I have not had good luck with...

    Thanks everybody! I will probably not be showing her at any of the Arabian shows locally, having worked a few of them when I boarded at Oregon Horse Center I think that they're a little too advanced...

    C'mon, it's a fantasy. Think bigger:D. How about a Triple Crown winner?

    Since my fantasy is to breed awesome thoroughbred race horses I'll give you a good deal on one.

    My other fantasy is a...

    Funny you should mention Tim, I actually picked her up at his barn and the mare's owner currently has a colt there in training. Her owners have sent quite a few of their horses to him, not sure why...

    About 2 hours.



    Just picked her up Sunday, and have been working all week. Hope to get some good pics and maybe some video this weekend. She definitely shows her saddlebred side more in the way...

    I just leased a beautiful pinto NSH mare for breeding. She is not broke to ride, but has a great mind and is extremely well bred. She is registered 1/2 Arabian, NSH and pinto. She is 50-50 Arab and...
