    I think you might have cranked your tinfoil hat up a little tight today, but even if that were true what good does it do if the car dealer you are talking to is using their cell phone?

    I can no longer tell which people in the hauling threads are being serious, and which people are being deliberately hyperbolic to make a point about how crazy people get when talking about trailers.

    For a lesson program? Wintecs all the way. A saddle that copes with abuse and can be hosed off once a month works really well. I'd get used Wintecs if you can find them easily and spend the money...
  4. Mowing, repairing broken infrastructure...

    Mowing, repairing broken infrastructure (plumbing, fencing, lights), servicing/repairing broken equipment (mowers, tractors), weed-whacking. Probably in that order.
  5. I think that's exactly it. Head to head trailers...

    I think that's exactly it. Head to head trailers are fairly large and expensive, so there are not that many of them on the road and it takes a long time for a trailer to depreciate 50% of its new...

    I don't understand why basic care is optional at that barn.

    If a horse is in a stall it needs bedding. "We provide bedding at $x per whatever or you can provide your own" seems reasonable. ...

    Most of the dedicated arena rakes have more than one row of ground contacting tools, so they break it up with bigger teeth first, then run a comb or roller at the back to smooth it back down. So...

    I'd sell them. Unless you already have a cobbler you trust it's pretty hard to tell what the quality will be until it is too late. Once you cut them up and alter them they become worthless to...

    How firm is your arena? If the truck can drive into or next to the arena dragging them seems like a good plan. If you need to drag them for a mile down a jagged track they are going to split.

    There are various kinds of DIY plastic out there eg

    It might not cost that much less than a new pair and might not be as hard wearing but if you like fixing things rather than...

    If you click buy tickets and select your own seats you can see what's available. It looks like Thursday is practically sold out. There is only the back row of one of the 5 stands available.

    Most...

    High is good. Maybe you want the edges of the pad feathered out more gradually so that it's easier to mow or keep gravel on or whatever you'll do with it but I'm sure it will be fine once you get...

    Seems like the problem will take care of itself in a month. In the meantime, maybe you should schedule your rides for 7am.

    Synthetic mesh stuff makes me hot, but I don't really feel like what...

    The stall ones are not generally on a giant pedestal like that. You can probably find their install instructions online, but generally you'd run plumbing up to one just next to the dividing wall,...

    JPC is the importer. More of the right people will see it if you edit the title to HDR/Henri Di Rivel stirrup leathers.

    I don't know exaclty what your situation is, but I don't see how you are going to stop the neighbor from using a lawnmower that does not belong to you to mow the lawn in the garden that is shared by...

    I agree with your basic point that the paperwork is mostly not that hard. I've found immigration lawyers add more work than they save for normal cases.

    The effective difficulty though varies...

    $168K does seem like a lot. That's only about a $40K cab chassis they are building it on so I am sure a functionally similar design would be possible at a significantly lower price. Perhaps even...

    There's no reason you couldn't do it, but depending on the base truck there are lots of things that would be expensive to do properly. Also furniture is not particularly dense so by the time you'd...

    I don't see how anything light enough to hang up by hand can be very useful. Maybe you should look into building a fenced alcove to store the current one in?

    I hang the chain harrow on a fence...

    How much is the whole thing going to weigh loaded?

    If it is significantly less than 13000 lbs (with about 3000 on the pin and 5000 on each axle) the main thing you'll get from heavier axles is a...

    Is she tied to the post, damsel in distress style, or does Hermes think it has been long enough and wants to bring Punky Brewster's bandana at the knee look back?
