    My homemade recipe, which also works, is a tube of desitin, a tube of anti fungal (jock itch cream, for example), and a tube of triple antibiotic. Every two days I wash with a mediated shampoo, dry...

    I think it depends a lot on layout and orientation. At the farm where I board they have a fairly old shed row barn that works really well.
    It orients to the south east and is much warmer and...

    Thanks, highflyer.
    I promise y'all it is a rule. I can send you my scores at recognized HTs for the last four years to prove it. Never worn a jacket unless it was April or late October.

    NO NO!! Jackets are NOT required when all three phases are contested in one day. This is not a new rule and I have to say it baffles me that so many here in Area II where we do lots of one days do...

    Certainly you can have a MW horse, or even a W horse, and a narrow twist. I will say that my horses have withers and shoulders, so I don't know what's available for a rounder shape, but...
    I agree...

    So, I just spent a Saturday judging pony clubbers doing Intro A (and B and even C,, but let's not get ahead of ourselves).

    Part of the problem with shopping, and with these threads, is that there is much more to what a truck can tow safely/well/easily than 1/2 ton vs 3/4 ton. The "same" truck with different engines, tow...

    It is measured to the top of the rail, not the cup. All levels have max height and width for oxers and IME they are measured very carefully. I'm a volunteer assistant for the course designer at our...

    If she is in a dry lot all day that's not what I would call extensive grazing. My horses live out on grass 24/7 - when my older horse was stalled during the day and out at night for an injury he...

    I'll be there and we will be practicing ditches like mad - glad to hear it is no longer in the woods as I do remember that and think I would probably lose that battle....

    Well, I signed. I am a Kathy White fan so was already convinced there and have been told by several folks that xc is "reasonable," which is all I'm looking for. I know it's friendly and all on grass....

    I once took my previous draft cross (not the one in my sig - other one was more drafty looking) to a schooling jumper show....he won his division, much to the amazement of the snotty kids who...

    Now that I keep HS in my tack box, I tend to give it a swipe after every ride unless I am in a hurry. More effort when I have a clinic or show, but I don't take it all the way apart - I will undo a...

    Well, it's not just muscles. Bone and soft tissue (ligaments and tendons) also need gradual conditioning. Soft tissue is easily strained by deep footing. I would definitely increase work gradually on...

    Yeah, give it time. Mine is a year older and I am not exaggerating when I say his canter is unrecognizable from where it was. Just focus on strength and flatwork and do poles and grids. He'll grow up...

    How old is he? Draft crosses can take a long time to develop and they can be heavy in front and unable to adjust their canters for longer than you think.
