    I'm in the swamps of NE SC. The closest town you'd have heard of is North Myrtle Beach, which is 35 miles due west of me.

    Land is still very affordable here. I'm not sure what "deeded trails"...

    Lendon Gray might be who my instructor got the technique from. :)

    I skimmed the article and don't agree with her methods.

    I agree that horses need to respect your space, however. Otherwise it would be hard to teach them to do certain things, like self-load into...

    I was watching 7 Clinics with Buck Brannaman the other day. On Disc 3, he discusses rider position. He says the contact between the rider's leg and the saddle should be behind the inseam of the...

    In my experience, dog training and horse training are quite different.

    Dogs respond well to reward and punishment. They're pack animals, and predators, as we are. So I think it's easier for us...

    I think we have a Poulan electric chain saw. I, like you, will have nothing to do with the gas powered models for the very same reasons. But I love our little electric model. Quiet, lightweight,...

    People with BSS are those who believe they can ride a difficult horse on the strength of their emotional bond with the horse, despite lacking the requisite skill set. You know you need help if you...

    Personally I would rather hang a live chicken around my neck and go swimming with alligators than take cookies into a pasture full of horses. :D Proceed with caution if you go the cookie route!

    Impact/Impacted for effect/affected.

    Does it just sound more macho to some people? To me it sounds as though someone is constipated. "Half the eastern seaboard will be impacted by the polar...

    I had a feral cat adopt me once, too. I believe I remember reading an article about the fairly complex social structures of the feral cats living in the Roman Coliseum.

    I've read that it's entirely possible that horses - and other animals - domesticated us. Or at least that it was a mutually beneficial arrangement. Not something our species unilaterally imposed...
  14. Horse-related magazines for the young male rider?

    I want to give a gift subscription to my nephew. He's seven, and has been taking riding lessons for almost a year. The kids never leave the ring, and it's a group of five or six kids with one...

    What are the odds? :lol:

    Actually, now that y'all mention it, I remember reading the Singer elephant book. I'm going to be hiding my own Easter eggs before long.

    NOT the same author! :lol: Sara Gruen wrote Riding Lessons, Flying Changes, Water for Elephants. All of which I think are sentimental badly researched drivel.

    I think the square toes are on the way out, at least judging by what's on super sale at TSC right now. And what's not. I don't like square-toes to ride in.

    I can't even wear my paddock boots to...

    I agree. For years that worked out pretty well here. But this year, with one of the pillars of the hunt community out of commission, and because this group has a reputation for making bad stuff...
  19. Another update - looking forward to New Year's Day

    OK, so since my last post, the BIL who called the game warden has had his house broken into and his gun collection and cash stash stolen.

    I've lost two hens, and would've lost a third had my...

    Don't watch TV, except for GMA while I'm in and out feeding critters, which is how I heard about this.
