They are not a no no at my hunt, but when you are crossing some of the creeks a solid boot is appreciated.
Maybe for city driving, but I agree with Highflyer, a "smart car" doesn't fair very well against any other regular car, much less an SUV.
I guess if you would be comfortable driving a motorcycle,...
I would love to get a set! I never had any, but my cousin did. I can remember spending hours reading and rereading them. The few pages I see posted here and there somehow seem funnier.
Not eventing, but I foxhunted my 14.1 lg pony first flight, barefoot...regularly jumping 3' to 3'6" over a 4-6 hour day. I'm 5'8", 130lbs. And I was never left wishing for more "horse".
Another thing to add to your calculations, what if one goes on stall rest and needs and endless supply in front of him to keep him from going bonkers in the stall.
I'm a hay hoarder as well. I...

I'm looking for ideas on how to keep my horse in shoes for longer than 3 weeks!! during hunt season.
Here's my issue: When I'm riding at home, I do some, but very little riding on roads. My...
Not sure where you are located, but in my area this time of year the ground bees get very angry. The stings can lead to swelling and in some horses weeping from the swollen areas. Benadryl would...
My 13 yr old DS has been experimenting with frying chicken for 2 years. 2 nights (I was going to grill it, he said I don't love grilled. He said he'd fry it.) ago he decided to add cinnamon to the...
