    We started doing this last year too. SO helpful in the middle of the night when you peer out the window and want to see your horse safe and sound in the pen.

    And yes -- always understand the...

    We do 1-3 night camping rides (coming back to camp in the late afternoon) quite a bit and prefer portable electric pens for the horses. If you choose that route, my suggestion is that you set up...

    Sounds to me like your horse needs to learn how to be a trail horse. Riding alone, on paved roads, only at a walk is not trail riding. Just because a horse is bomb proof in the ring does not mean...

    My TWH forges, particularly on the right. I have him shod in the front and he wears Easy Boot Gloves on the back. We've only thrown one of the gloves on trail once, and that was because I was...

    I discovered Goode Riders two years ago, and now they are all I wear. My old Ariat and Cavallo breeches sit and gather dust. I just ordered my third pair last week. Cannot stand to be bound at the...

    A bunch of them have come and gone, but here's a list. Most of these rides have over 100 participants that come for the weekend and lots of day riders as well. Surprised I didn't get any feedback,...

    Anyone going? Massies Mill, Fair Hill, Amelia Springs, Flint Hill? I'm part a big group that going to most of them. Would be fun to meet some COTH folks. Not that I'm here much these days, but...

    We have 5 horses on about 8.5 acres of pasture, split into 3 large pastures. I never pick out the pastures. I can't imagine it. My guys are in half day so doing stalls is quite enough. :winkgrin: ...

    My schedule is about the same as the OP. The horses are in now from 9am to 7pm. I started this back when we moved to our farm because we had too much grass for 3 of our 5 horses -- who have to be...

    Darn it all! I've made the photo album public!

    Yes, bungie cord to hold it open (from window to old latch) and a sponge to keep it from damaging the arm is what we're doing right now.

    So far...

    I think a lot depends on the shape of your horse's hooves. I use Easyboot Gloves on my TWH, they are easy to get on the first 3-4 weeks after a trim, harder to get on in weeks 4-6. But they fit him...

    Me! Got really sick after a ride that was mostly in the sun, and a post ride gathering that was all in the sun on a 90 degree, high humidity day. I was drinking both water and Gatorade, but the...

    Aww shoot. No responses. I can't imagine that I'm the only one with this issue. Should I post it in another forum on COTH?

    We have a 70x110 exercise arena - size also determined by cost and grading. It's great for lunging, schooling and lessoning if you aren't a jumper. Sure, I wish it was longer, but it works well...

    New Awning - Question

    We had a 15 foot awning installed this week on our horse trailer. We love it already because I am such a sun/heat whimp, and we trail ride quite a bit and spend time at the trailer afterwards with...

    We buy Triple Crown Safe Starch forage, that we don't feed regularly -- it's a reward snack or I use it when the horses are in longer than usual for heat or bad weather. I have a small bucket that I...

    I trailer out 2-3 times a week on average (hubby goes with on Sundays). Our horses will put themselves on the trailer if we let them. :) Granted, we're going for a trail ride every time -- not the...

    Thanks 5chestnuts! (how can a horse have 5 chestnuts?)

    We're expecting tomorrow and Saturday's high winds to dry us out for a wonderful ride on Sunday! The forecast is 70 degrees and sunny. ...

    Hey, that's my boy Fred in that "Got Mice" pic! We miss him so. He was the best barn cat ever.

    Is this the same organization we got Fred, Wilma and Betty from? If so, I can totally vouch for...
