    1) Be leery of excuses involving the weather, poor footing, other horses, etc. for less than desirable behavior or weird steps. It sounds so obvious but it can be so subtle in practice that you'll...

    Congratulations to everyone involved. As someone who is right about Caroline's age I have an immense respect for her talent and work ethic. I would love to have a fraction of her talent.

    The good- she cuddles with the dog. It's adorable. Seriously. I know they are mine but I think anyone would melt to watch the way she intently grooms his face, biscuits his side, and then curls up...

    I buy nice breeches used for $20-30, preferably in white, and then dye them plum, hunter green, navy, etc with $3 Rit dye. Tops are athletic-blend no-name brands off of amazon for...

    I've actually never heard of that. Are they old pairs? Could you be heavy with your seat creating excessive friction/tension on the fabric?

    Dear Diary,

    That tiny person showed up again tonight. 8 months of this nonsense. When will she give up? This time I was in the middle of eating dinner. The nerve. She just stared at me. What am...

    Mine is 100% like this. Some days he gets it and wants to work, other days he is a mini monster and wants to resist everything. I think it is all part of the process of learning expectations and...

    Sending love and hugs. I was unceremoniously dumped two summers ago by a very long-term boyfriend. He slowly pulled away emotionally before the break up so by the time I was clued in, he had...

    If you can lure him on with food can you feed him on it. If he backs off, no big deal, quietly lead him back up. Keep repeating until you can move around inside the trailer, touch him, etc. without...

    Stacey Emory seems to move hers quickly enough they aren't always going O/F but I really like the look of the OTTBS and unraced TBs she markets.

    No words just empathy. It's hard to love them so much and feel like you are living injury to injury. Same farrier the whole time? Any chance the shoeing could be altered (under the guidance of a...

    I think when people hear hot horse rehabbing and lunging they immediately image a horse hauling butt in a 10 meter circle. However, I think modified in-hand/lunging may be an option depending on his...

    Having a young gelding means that his desire for affection is highly dependent on his energy level. If he is "up" he is not receptive at all. However, when he is mellow (an increasingly common...

    Lysine for one cat is so cheap that I think that'll be a no-brainer. Thank you for the suggestion. If we can do it without causing too much stress I think a good bath would also be a huge help.
