    My OTTB has funky stifles. He was injected once when he was racing, but it didn't do much to help. I was his exercise rider at the time and didn't feel a big difference. When I took him off the...

    One of my favorites is 4 poles on a circle. You can start with 20 meters or so and go smaller or larger from there. If you think of it as a clock, set at 12, 3, 6, and 9. Ask for a certain number...

    You guys are going to totally laugh at me, but I use the spray-on can of Scotchguard on all my whites. Wearing a white skirt to work, spray it before I get in the shower so it has time to dry. White...

    I had an absolute blast when I went. We had a box right above the tunnel where the horses came out onto the track.

    As a riding horse, she would be a giveaway best case scenario. No one is going to pay money for an older horse with no real potential to move up and be a resale project due to age. Putting dressage...
