    I absolutely hated it. It was a club sport so had little university funding. Lessons were full price. The instructor I had was a royal B---made George Morris's harsher comments sound like a peewee...

    Owning a horse is a big gamble and financial commitment. I don't think it's anything that a parent should have to be talked into. The beauty of a lesson horse is that the money outlay can be stopped...

    Please do not try to push her around in a stall before you establish a better relationship leading and outside of a stall. You have nowhere to escape and can get injured very quickly if you cannot...

    Same as the poster above, I hunted a half a dozen weekends when hubby could watch her or I could get a sitter but that was about it. By her second summer at 15 months or so she started reliably...

    You need a trainer to help teach you how to handle her and recognize the subtle displays of dominance that you need to nip in the bud. She needs to move out of your space, not push you around. No...

    I won't be able to get a 3rd level dressage-like topline out of an unridden horse but there's no reason for a prominent SI and hips and spine on a horse regardless of fitness level. I've struggled so...

    I don't mind a head with some character but I absolutely hate a piggy eye. Regardless of old wives tales I just don't want to look at that ever day.

    Which has better areas for hacking? I'd prefer a bigger area like a track around the pasture or nearby trails for conditioning than an arena. But if that is equal I'd go with the sloped but good...

    What type of hay is in the round bale? It can be really hard to find top quality, second cutting hay in a round bale. Most is first cutting and often pretty stemmy. It takes a long time to digest and...

    I used to supplement with flax (for skin issues in newly acquired chestnut OTTB mare) and magnesium and biotin for the hyper OTTB but I've found it much more economical to go with a high quality RB...

    Another thing I liked about the Warwick Schiller videos is the variety of horses he demonstrates with. He has one warmblood in there that is high as a kite, a "big kicking Thoroughbred" another...

    We got a used JD 3203 at a big used dealer in PA for around 8k. It has high hours but was in great shape with a new front loader attached. It handles round bales but just barely.

    At the core of it all I think is establishinging a leadership role and accepted behavioral responses that translate well to any regular handling. I think PP did so well in that they broke everything...

    It's low but not unreasonable if it was not sized to accommodate heaters. Nothing else pulls power like a heating element or compressor. Providing more power gets more expensive. Bigger panels,...
