    I used to event a pony and wish my current horse was pony sized as I really do love ponies. As for weight and height, the general rule is an equine can carry 20% of its weight.

    I was up there last weekend for the first time and it will be a huge loss if someone horsie doesn't buy it.

    As others have said, if there was no contract then no commission. Now, if this person had been hired expressly to market horse on social media that would be a different situation, but this person was...

    From my experience? Yes, it is entirely possible to not be comfortable in a dressage saddle. Every dressage saddle that I've ridden in the past few years makes my hip hurt. The hip pain is from a...

    I have an Appendix, Dragonlady Anne, but looking up our record won't help much since we're pretty much committed to levels below BN at this point :D

    At least 200, possibly over 300. Competed on 11 of them.

    Holy crud I've been on a lot of horses.

    That's the original reason for them. However, many normal helmets today are built so the visors pop right off. There's warning labels on some of them when you buy them saying, "hey, don't carry this...

    A tarp may work, assuming the event you're at doesn't have high winds. Then, no matter how well tied down it is, it's probably going to be scary for someone :D

    If your horse is already eating all the forage he can get then add fat. I like Triple Crown Rice Bran Oil Plus, but it is an oil so sort of a PITA. If you need something easy to feed, I've used...

    With my pony I used to have to either request a solid walled stall or an end stall: if she could see her neighbors through walls she was convinced they were going to steal her food and she stressed...

    If you aren't feeding anything other than hay you could go with a ration balancer. Most of them are like 30% protein and you only feed a pound. It has some calories, but not like "grain" does....

    I have a Tex Eventer and got it in... 2010 I think. No problems with it, though I need to replace the billets soon as they've stretched quite a bit. I have several friends with various models of BC...

    St Johns HT in St Johns, AZ. The town is like, 45 minutes from the next one, and there's only two restaurants. They sort of have to feed us :D

    As others have said: good food that comes in a timely fashion. My favorite event has the same food every year, which could be a bit boring but you know exactly what you're getting. It's pretty good,...

    This gets spread around a lot. This does not happen with melanomas. However, I believe it does happen with sarcoids, which are a completely different kettle of fish.

    Have you tried Fenugeek? You can find it in the spice aisle. It's in a lot of supplements to entice picky eaters. You can also try apple sauce, carrot flavored baby food, sugar free jello...

    Go search Horse Care. There's a lot of threads on melanomas, one even from just the other day. There's threads on Oncept, Cimetidine and everything else.

    It sounds like your horse is one of the...

    I always call the vet, if only so she has a heads up that I might need her. Also, because she lives next door I may catch her when she's close, as opposed to an hour away on the other side of the...

    Thanks. It still makes me quite sad. IIRC, there is a link between those that go white early and melanoma. The melanin leaves the coat, turning them white, and turns into melanomas.

    My pony was pure white when I bought her at four, and she already had her first melanoma. I had to put her down due to them when she had just turned 8. The first one I noticed on the inside of her...

    Eventing in NM can be challenging. The options I know of are: Simply Three Day in Santa Fe, which seems to have lesson horses. Goose Downs Farm in Galisteo, which also seems to have lesson horses....
