    Yeah it's weird! I quoted you and something else popped up. I didn't type that name!
    Makes sense what you are saying. Kind of stinks to pick a school based on it has a riding team!

    I am not surprised that the NCAA would recommend gettjng rid of equestrian sports. It's basically not fair! The kids that get on the teams are the ones show at A rated shows doing things like medal...

    I am just curious about why you didn't like riding on the team? It seems like a full scholarship would make it a pretty sweet deal! Why would riding on your own be better? Did they require too much...

    my horse walked all around Saugerties barefoot with zero problems. I even handwalked him over the bridges to the trailer parking lot filled with rocks because i needed something from the trailer and...

    i will watch it later. i would love to see this, because all my ideas of what needs to be done with feet have been challenged since i bought my latest horse.

    I am not really sure that you cannot go higher without shoes, because I am not good enough to go higher yet. Its not because I keep my horse barefoot, but because I am not a good enough rider to...

    Please do not twist my words. I did not say that farriers shoe all horses because they are greedy and I did not generalize that All horses can go barefoot. I did not stereotype farriers as...

    this is exactly what several farriers have told me, but they told me as well that they would rather them be shod because they make more money and that is what the owners want.

    transitioning can be very tough. its not for everyone and for every horse. it really depends.

    I am not saying every horse can go barefoot. It really depends. Mostly on whether the horse owner has the patience to allow the horse to transition if it has shoes or whether the horse has really...

    People are so convinced that horses have to have shoes for support. But it actually causes horse to have more concussion. If your horse is sound without shoes, there is no need to put them on for a...

    Shredded boots at USET finals

    I noticed a trend at the USET finals of riders with boots completely ripped up in the calf area! Like not just holes. Frayed and shredded. I am sure they use their calf muscles to keep those...

    Life isn't fair. You cannot have it all. People have to show on Easter at times. You make a choice. Religion or riding. If we had to make exceptions for everyone's religion, nothing would get done.
