    I am glad I ride at a barn where we ride the horse we have, not the one chemistry created. We become better riders for it. And sometimes your hunter ends up a better fit in the jumper ring.

    Personally, I"m not a fan of raised reins as I think it makes it harder to "feel" the horse's mouth, but that's a personal thing. I don't think there's enough of a difference in look to make any...

    We're about an hour west of KC, and got pretty much nothing. It was 34 this afternoon & raining, so a few degrees certainly made a difference. Everyone was freaking out about this storm, and it was...

    Dogs outside - finally!!

    Having indoor bird dogs when it's this cold (high of 20 today and it felt warm!) is enough to drive a person crazy! We've gone through bones, toys, treats and played endless rounds of fetch inside...

    I am not sure of the John Lyons method, but our mare decided she no longer wanted to leave our barn last year. Her NO behavior was downright dangerous to herself and us when she started rearing and...

    I do understand the logical reasoning behind why it is not a quarter the cost. I have friends/family who are in drug research fields, and how much goes into a new drug R&D. Hence the title of this...

    Wow. I totally get that what I just bought was the same price as the dog drug (actually, about $1 less) but it irks me that the cost of the 57mg dose is so much higher than the cost of the 227mg...
  11. VENT: Previcox and Equioxx - gouging horse owners

    I have had enough Previcox to get through until now. It irks me that I now have to pay twice as much for the same drug with a horse on the label instead of a dog. My mare didn't mind the liver...

    Not really anything to add except embrace the Mare. I, too, have been blessed with some special mares in my life and count myself as a Mare person (even though my trainer thinks I'm crazy for it!). ...

    I used an 18x18 moving box, along with bubble wrap, and took mine to the FedEx store and had them add the little peanuts in so that it was super protected. I think they charged me a couple of...

    It can also depend on who you are riding with. We frequently end up riding with our trainers' little kids due to our own schedule. We know we may have to steer around little Susie who is really not...

    Are you looking for a western saddle? If you are, check out R Bar B just north of Topeka. They have hundreds of western saddles new and used. I'd say that the vast majority of western saddles at...

    If I'm not mistaken, that's an N. Pessoa - pretty much the awesomest saddle ever. My trainer has one of these that fit my horse. She basically told me I'd have to pry it from her cold, dead hands. ...

    Holy moly. You and yoru partner are in and in deep.

    Why not get some white webbing and sew billet straps on the bottom of the one you have? Much cheaper than a new one, and you get to continue using a totally useable pad.
