    Could you mount some sort of shade cloth to your fence? I have no concept about cost, amount of fence line involved, logistics of goats + fabric, etc. but just a thought. Seems unfair that the burden...

    The point still remains, if a clinician spends 20 minutes of a 45 minute ride rambling about anything other than the horse and rider in question, it is unfair. That rider gets 25 minutes worth of...

    I would really (really) recommend doing navicular x-rays. Since the shoes are pulled I think a lot of people overlook doing them. If you want a horror story I would be more than happy to share mine....

    At his price point I think a buyer should be satisfied with an unedited video of him schooling somewhere new or pay a substantial fee for your time.

    I'm looking forward to checking out Tryon this summer. The grand prix nights seem like they are designed for engaging the community with music, food, etc. Creating more of a "festival" feel could...

    Ditto to the title! She seems to be incredibly driven, hardworking, and level-headed. I wish her the best of luck.

    many horses thrive on forage plus a ration balancer or multi-vitamin.

    Another thing that may be worth considering is using this time on a schoolmaster to address your seat for when she goes back to work.

    So it sounds like he is a 15 year old WBx with essentially no show record (perhaps a few rated events or dressage shows) who is nice on the flat and can pop around a 3 foot course. He is a forward...

    If you are crooked then riding bareback won't accomplish much other than taking away the saddle barrier between your crookedness and her back.

    Has a lameness specialist seen her? I think at this...

    Congratulations!!

    I would encourage her to do research about BC failure rates, proper use, etc. Condoms alone are VERY risky. Unplanned pregnancies are a very real problem in emerging adults. Also, the stress/change...

    So true. A good friend of mine lived with a family that tried really hard to channel their smart pig. They apparently didn't keep him mentally engaged enough and he became insanely destructive. He...

    This. It may be a pain in the rear but so much better than having an angry neighbor or worrying about the safety of the grass my puppy is walking on.

    On top of the inventory list I would take pictures of everything to prevent a situation from belligerent boarder trying to come back to your barn stating they "ruined" something.

    OP was the ER able to do an ultrasound of your reproductive system? I cannot imagine how scary that must have been for you and your family. Please don't brush it off. Take care of yourself. Even if...

    My sister's mare had it done over a decade ago when we were pretty ignorant to all things related to horses and injuries. Surgery was done at the vet's personal farm, in a stall. Lots of blood and a...

    Too young to jump at 4? I'm all for promoting longevity but 4 certainly seems old enough to start doing pole courses, baby grids, and popping over the occasional 18"-2'3 fence.

    7 isn't old but for a lot of serious AA riders or professionals it is quite old to not have a record and be solidly working up the levels. However, if the horse is on the fence between...

    That is actually a bit under what I was quoted at a local teaching hospital.

    Chastain Horse Park has a very established program last I checked.

    Being in GA I totally believe you've seen those things in the < $200 month boarding. I drive by barbwire pastures with a half-collapsed barn and a sign for "horse boreding" and wince. I've known...
