    heh - I learned to cram Tues nights for Weds pre-lesson inspections by Mrs Ligon. Eventually I learned that keeping up with the cleaning through the week made the Tues prep easier.

    Call around, but a rough ballpark for fewer than 15 students is probably around 7-800 bucks. 30 students around $1400, and so on, iirc.
    My insurance has never asked where the helmets come from,...

    Art by Sisyphus!

    but yes, seeing and creating the ongoing improvements, moving towards an ideal, which will never - quite - be realized, it is satisfying. :)

    Make sure you start him back with long slow distance work, and progressively increase his work load, including lighter days for recovery. I don't have data on supplements, but I know lack of base...

    I put some of my lights on dimmers, so I can do night check w low light, or have just a little light in a stall if I'm keeping an eye on a horse.

    Also did four floodlights in my grooming area so...

    Ration balancers are generally grain free, IME.
    Here's a link I just found with a good description of their use, plus links to a bunch of different brands of balancers. ...
  7. Thanks.

    Thanks.

    There are good arguments/reasons to choose either event as a prep. Historically I would say terrain plays into the XC courses more at FENCE and Southern 8ths than at the Fork (which has terrain but...

    Trilogy Talisman??

    Just curious - I recently bought a Trilogy Amadeo dressage saddle which I am loving. Really beautiful balance for me. 4 out of 5 people I've had try mine have instantly sat better in it too. So of...

    If you lose power and have to carry water, you can put a trash bag in a trash can (or water tub, or muck tub), fill the trash bag with water, then tie the bag shut (or use a rubber band or twist tie)...

    Lots of great advice and thoughts here.
    One thing I haven't seen mentioned - time change happens in March. If waiting 5 or 6 weeks will make consistency easier, consistency will likely make...

    My pallet forks were about $150 from Northern Tool, and they are the easiest thing in the world to attach to a tractor bucket. There is a lip which fits easily around the bottom edge of the bucket,...

    Before I got my pallet forks I moved large bales sometimes (very carefully) suspended from my FEL bucket by webbing. Put the webbing across your truck bed so the straps go underneath the bales and...

    If you're on a definite timeline this tip probably won't help, but for those of us who always could find a use for a couple (dozen)truckloads of dirt - I have had very good luck stopping to chat with...

    Yes, if it's 100 for 4 yards, I would look around for a triple or quad axle truck which can hold more like 12- 16 yards - might still be about 100 bucks...

    I did a tibial plateau fracture , got the hardware and still have it about ten years ago. I went to my first Young Horse Symposium at Hilltop farm a couple days after surgery (to watch, not to ride)...

    I thought it referred in part to ability to recite the catechism. A little time on Wiki teaches me that is not true for Catholics. Might be true for horses, come to think of it...

    Was he asking them to ride a line (say across the diagonal) starting in half pass then continuing the same line but switching to leg yield? That can teach horses to keep the hind end coming up and...

    Definitely give him a call. I only got to ride with him a handful of times maybe 15 years ago, but I still remember and use some of his exercises and comments. Nice smart knowledgable guy would be my...

    So where did she lose points? Were there any 8's? What got 10's and what scored only 9? :)

    Sweet! But whoops, I thought we were already in the "conservative color" shirt rule. Time for a rulebook re-read!

    Refresh my memory- do you have to get the interactive model for it to be competition legal? (And if it does, had any rescue squad anywhere ever said having self reported medical records available...
