    I agree with being more assertive and more specific in your texts and messages. Trying to set up a regular weekly lesson that occurs at the same time is probably your best bet in terms of simplifying...

    I think you just have to ignore whatever looks you are getting. I agree with Mischievous, pony club is about teaching kids good, safe skills but there aren't hard and fast rules about some of the...

    :)

    Even better than a play stall is having a truck load of class I sand (small gravel) dumped in a pile near your barn. We always keep a pile on hand for various uses on the farm, and let me tell...

    Absolutely! This is why I never used baby carriers (like the baby Bjorn, etc.) around the horses. (Though they are handy for other situations.)

    An all-terrian stroller was my best friend when mine were small, made it easy to go around the farm and check on everyone and do chores with babies in tow. Fresh air is fabulous for babies.

    I also...

    It really is less about age and more about experience and suitability. My youngest (small for his age) did his first hunter pace at age 6 on an 8.2 hand mini with a a good motor. We did the...

    Calcium chloride works great. I've never had problems using it. It does wash away after a few months though. I agree, it would be very impractical to use Mag on an outdoor arena.

    IMO, having some exact saddle brand/style for the hunter/jumper rings is a lot less crucial than many folks would suggest. No, I probably wouldn't recommend taking an obviously eventing styled saddle...

    My sisters and I were lucky enough to ride with the Big Sky Hounds group this summer and it was tremendous fun! Spectacular country, lovely people, and extremely nice livery horses. It wasn't hunting...

    I've switched a bunch of horses over to the Smartpak ultimates. IME, they hold up about the same as any other mid-high end blanket. Smartpak has been excellent about returns, though I haven't needed...

    The OP said that her current situation didn't allow for the opportunity to do Pony Club, but Mango is right, it is great for boys. The emphasis is more on horsemanship and learning to ride and handle...

    I have three boys that ride. I have never felt that there was a perception issue related to judging--I've never felt that my boys were either penalized or given an unfair advantage. Honestly, kids on...

    My kids and I wear soft rubber bracelets that have important phone numbers and basic medical history/allergies. I think a laminated card in the pocket is a great idea also, especially for someone...

    Might be better to ask your question in a new thread rather than bringing an old one back up.

    No, they don't send you the results but when they collect the samples you get a paper with a number...

    That's the one I bought, the aquashell fabric for $75. The small is for a waist up to 34" and it is stretchy and adjustable.

    The OP and her farrier can't even get the horse's feet trimmed, I don't think that more time is going to turn this situation around.

    I've heard about the industry moving to China as well. I think it is a real shame. Not only were the Canadian ranches highly regulated, I think there had been a successful effort to improve the...
