    I also recommend the Ovation jods and breeches for boys. They are relatively affordable and look nice enough for showing. My son wears his everyday (for schooling and showing) and they hold up...

    I have a boy and he has probably gotten some "boy points" in the pony hunters before. Not that he's ever had a really bad trip that pinned over someone else's nice trip, but when all other things...

    Yes, there is a Pessoa lunging rig made for ponies. It works great! We do our young ponies (5 year olds) in the rig about 1- 3 times per week and they are ridden by a child the other 2 or 3 days....

    Some horses, especially some of the European breeds and ponies, retain their winter coats longer than we'd like regardless of how much you groom them or attempt to accelerate the process with a...

    I'm not in the market for a new helmet, but I LOVE that midnight blue Charles Owen. I'm a sucker for anything in navy and the CO navy is very dark, traditional looking, and classy. You could...

    I send all bridle or saddle repairs to Beval. They do a great job and it's pretty reasonable with good turn around. If you go to their website there's a form you can print off and you just fill it...

    Even if it were legal with USEF to hide markings (which it is not), I would not put any potentially irritating or itchy substance anywhere on a horse's face, especially near an eye. If you're not...

    I agree. The rated pony divisions are national level classes intended to showcase the PONIES themselves. They are equal to the Junior hunters (and other rated hunter divisions) in every way. The top...

    Excellent post! All very true!

    The "wandering around the bushes with a blank stare" part makes me laugh a little too. I have totally witnessed that blank stare on my son's face a few times. ...

    I've always had very friendly and professional service from Farm House. Sounds like this was just a mix-up between the store and the mobile unit and they are going to refund your card. What's the...

    Finding boys' show clothing can be tricky! It is out there, just not as many options as there are for girls. Here's what I do:

    Haven't read the whole thread, but BWW does seem like a person who is simply new to the sport and wants to actually support his daughter and learn the ropes.

    So, here is my advice to anyone who...

    I agree with everyone here...that SAFE is the only requirement for a first (or even second) pony. Also, having been down this road recently with my son, I can tell you what we did.

    For high quality coastal hay you are definitely looking at $10-13 per square bale. Much more for alfalfa. We feed a combo of coastal and alfalfa and have approximately 26 horses to feed. We buy...

    Good advice. We only use wood trunks at our farm too (but the covers are made in the barn colors). A quality solid-wood tack trunk never looks bad in any barn, and it never goes out of style.

    Quillin makes a beautiful halter and their plates aren't going to budge! All of our horses wear one with their barn name on it.

    But I agree that you shouldn't turn-out horses with halters (with...
