  1. I've had people offer to be a human or...

    I've had people offer to be a human or horse-and-rider block for when Ollie was pulling shenanigans. And I've had to tell them hell no each time. There are some horses - including mine - who will run...

    The horse in the video is #4: " I was not informed that my Thoroughbred gelding, Buzz, was non weight-bearing with cellulitis for 2 days, and no vet was called. Ellen chose to diagnose and treat him...
  3. I'd buy the horse I love that can do what I want...

    I'd buy the horse I love that can do what I want it to do for the price I can afford. There's no right answer here. It's a personal preference. (but I certainly wouldn't spend the whole windfall at...

    She travels a lot for work, so keeping them all at her place without someone to care for them while she's gone is not realistic.

    Regarding the hail storm? I am less than 30 minutes from this barn....

    OMG, everyone go have a cookie. Or a drink. Or a cookie in a drink, to be safe.

    Overcoming demons mental and physical certainly are achievements, and drug rehab involves both.

    But he actually DID retire after the 2012 Olympic games, and then decided to start training again....

    Don't we all know trainers in various disciplines who continue to get clients and testimonials despite having no business being in the horse industry? I thought that was kind of a COTH staple!

    What is his training schedule?
    What is his turnout like? How many hours, alone/group?
    What is his personality when off property? New places?
    How many different riders has he had?
    What is he like...

    Tack for a hot horse? I'd suggesting going minimal with some built-in cooling gel and then giving the horse a good clip and a popsicle.

    Also, I really hate to say this, but I'm honestly coming from a place of concern here as a fellow person with chronic health issues. Jumping 1.2-1.3m regularly and safely might require more from your...

    (I also highly suggest looking at event horses domestically to fit your budget. You probably have the best chance of meeting your budget there and ticking off more boxes)
  13. I'm sorry you've had to go through a lot. I have...

    I'm sorry you've had to go through a lot. I have lupus, so I'm no stranger to chronic health issues.

    One quibble about teaching an old dog new tricks: you actually can. My behemoth is 13 and just...

    If you enjoy learning and training and not showing, you can put the lateral work on the horse yourself.

    If I, a mere weenie fairly inexperienced ammie eventer, can get my tailless...

    I can't say enough wonderful things about Angela Bowles (formerly Grzywinski). She really gets the individual issues of both riders and horses and does not do things one-size-fits-all. She also...

    Quick tip here from a weenie BN rider: Before entering a particular event for the first time, seek out videos on YouTube of their courses and see what they look like and how max and fair they are....

    Ranitidine did nothing for my old horse that I suspected had ulcers, but they were later confirmed with his new owner, who put him on other meds.

    Fee glitch aside, I think it's a bargain, really, that I spent a total of $168 for four days of entertainment. That's less than a lot of concert tickets.

    I tend to have the same problem. Romfhs fit me the best, and TuffRider ribbed ones work great too. I have some older Ariats that fit well too, but I'm not sure of the model - they were a hand-me-down.

    Me! I have a drafty boy I did local hunters with, and we sucked. I feel like I didn't really learn to *effectively* ride until we switched to eventing about three years ago (but that could be a...
