    I like the idea of a dark, shaped sheepskin pad. Foxhunting is terribly hard on white items! How do the sheepskin pads hold up for hunting though? I'd imagine you have to wash them quite a bit...

    Now you are on the right track! :) Whatever you decide to do for right now, just remember that you have a lot of fun ahead of you, both with your own riding and sharing your love of horses and ponies...

    Definitely get a second MEDICAL opinion here. Your situation is not a typical pregnancy. I think it's fine that you ask other people for their experiences, but your situation and your risks could be...

    Thanks jawa. I've never had a reason to roach a mane before, but this mare I'm bringing along has a mane that parts in the middle and is enormously bushy on each side. I think that if I try to really...

    Thank you Foxglove!

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I'd imagine that if a hunt required boots without zippers they would probably end up with about four people left in the field. I still have several old pairs from the days before...

    Like it or not, a student's performance DOES reflect back on the instructor. If this student goes to a show and has (or causes) a serious accident or has a serious accident at home, the horse world...

    I've been an Antares customer for about 6-7 years now. Both of my saddles have been great. I call one of the saddles "the magic saddle" because it seems to fit so many different horses so well. It...

    Gumtree summed it up, but it's quite a lot of fun to go to Keeneland and watch the auction, especially when the high dollar horses are selling. I took my non-horsey in-laws one year and I'll never...

    Just for the sake of discussion, how often do you think it is normal or okay to fall off a young horse you are bringing along?

    I ask because I also bring along my own young horses, all of whom...

    Your tan knee patch breeches are the best choice, and if you hate them why don't you pick up another pair that you like better--those are a staple that you'll definitely be about to use in the...

    I'd recommend staying in a hotel in Georgetown for the reasons SolarFlare mentions. But Newtown Pike or Lexington would work fine too. Probably most of the things you are going to want to see/do...

    I love dressing nicely for hunting and I love the look of velvet helmets, but I'm sorry, the safety of my brain comes first! I have a helmet that fits me very well that does not come in a traditional...

    I think it is really tough to be an instructor for a student who is mounted on an unsuitable horse, let alone when the student doesn't seem to use your advice. I agree with others--if you can't...

    I'm no fan of rust, but current hunter ring fashion is in a rut. Someone needs to do something to break up the sea of tan breeches, white shirts and navy/black jackets. If it's going to take a...

    Just as an aside, ducks are cuter and more entertaining than chickens and they don't scratch everything up. They also will lay eggs, and no, they don't need a pond. They aren't quite as voracious at...

    A small flock of hens is very easy to keep :) No rooster needed, and I wouldn't recommend one, the noise might aggravate you or your neighbors. Chickens are wonderful little garbage disposals--they...

    I think it is a lovely jacket and would be fine in the hunters. I do feel that it would clash with yellow bunnies on a gray horse, though :)

    I would venture to guess that if the daughter isn't riding that either means that she is losing interest or isn't able to take advantage of your generosity for other reasons. Sometimes riding is fun...

    I agree with others that you might be better off looking a little further out. We were lucky and bought well before the WEG came to town, but if we were looking now I think we would be looking at a...

    I jump smaller stuff about every other day with horses that have an issue that I'm working on. I keep the jump sizes small--often even just poles or cross rails or cavaletti sized verticals--and I...

    Ariat and TS are my favorites for show breeches.

    For show coats, you need to find what fits you and looks good on YOU. There are tons of great brands to choose from, you just need to try on a...

    It sounds like the problem for the OP is more the quality of braids rather than the color. For myself I prefer traditional colored yarn (black or chestnut brown), but beautifully done braids with a...

    Last year I started to get back into hunting after a long hiatus and for my partner I took my husband's QH mare. She caught on pretty quick and was a willing, low drama, surefooted hunt mount. I only...

    I use sheep for pasture rotation. When they are done with a field it looks like a golf course. They delight in eating brushy plants and a lot of weeds/plants the horses aren't interested in. They get...
