    a) you're seeing the top 15 young horses. By this point in the season the less-than-brave ones have typically been weeded out and either won't qualify or won't waste their time making the trip.

    So generally speaking, I don't care that my softshells are wrinkly because a) they're really *that* much more comfortable than wool and b) what I get out of shows are pictures like this one (where...

    My horses get 60ish days put on them over the summer they turn 3 and then I turn them out until the following spring. So my vote would go towards turning her out to let her grow.

    I had a dog named Stormy and he eventually turned into Norman - I always kind of liked that :)

    This reminds me of the first time I rode with my dressage trainer years (gosh decades?) ago. I was SO proud of myself for teaching my mare to pivot on her hind leg for the turn on the haunches, and...

    I didn't make it to Evergreen this year (still waiting to have them put my division back in), but everything I've heard from friends who went has been positive regarding the facility. The general...

    Fair point that people who suck suck across the decades :lol:

    But I also think that it tends to be a trait that decreases with age and maturity. It's just that some people avoid maturity at all...

    If the ribbons are something special and you've been wanting one for years, then I would guess that you're not the only one. So it's not a huge stretch to get to people stealing them. I would guess...

    I'm with beowulf.

    I also agree with Katy Watts. I think that mares in general are less okay (than geldings) with inconsistent handling and can turn into "bad horses" with a severity that's in...

    My first choice for all of my horses (who are all varying degrees of severe shark fin withered horses, but wide bodied) are my County saddles. But on the lower end of the cost scale I have several...

    I'm not clear on when you added the gastroguard, so this may be relevant or not. And I've posted about this many times, so I'll just quickly comment that omeprazole led to gas colics for my horse. My...

    No, the cut is on the lateral aspect of the leg from front to the back and the knot of scar tissue (about the size of a small grape) is on the very back of his leg right below the cut and looks like...

    Very interesting idea to "tree" a girth over the hematoma - I may try that in a couple of weeks. I just got his new saddle this week (sad to have to wait to use it on him!) and I also suspect that I...
  14. Hematoma in the girth area - tips, advice, experience....?

    There's a venting aspect to this post since I'm super frustrated about this whole thing, but if you want to skip to the summary you can just read the last paragraph (in blue) ;)

    I sent away my...

    My daughter has all sorts of crazy (= "pony colored") breeches. Every time we go to the barn for a lesson no less than 2 adults comment that they wish her breeches came in adult sizes. Looks like...

    I can only speak for jumpers, but we have a big show series up here (Thunderbird) that does a Young Horse Showcase once during each set of shows. So my baby mare did the 4yo section in May and July,...

    Mine is concrete with an outdoor rug on top (for the same reasons as MeghanDACVA who sounds like she has a higher end looking tackroom than mine! ;))

    There are far too many I'd like to meet to count! I have some I consider "outside of COTH" friends even though I've never actually met them (like fordtraktor and TidyRabbit and many others who, like...

    That was easier to find than I initially expected!

    A bunch of people suggested Ballew's in Tacoma. A couple said Rays near Fife. And one person suggested Brim Tractor in Chehalis.

    But...

    I asked this same question on Facebook a few months ago. I found a great shop a mile from my house on the peninsula (after almost a decade of hauling down to Olympia for service!), but got lots of...

    I have one and I love it. Not sure if you have a particular question, but I have a Stabilizer, an Innovation (which goes on my High AO/GP horse), and a Sensation on the way. But at the end of the day...

    I'm a big fan of Back on Track. I have the quick wrap boots for my big guy and also put him in a Back on Track sheet at night (and during the day if it's cool out).

    But really it depends on the...

    Are you taking the stirrups off of the saddle or are you just dropping them? I ride one of my mares each day without stirrups, and when I'm using her saddle on one of my other horses I sometimes just...
