    Horsey life in Mendocino County?

    I know we have one regular poster on here from Mendocino County - any others?

    What's the horse scene like? Any good barns or does everyone keep horses at home? Trainers? Trail riding? Access...

    I love trail riding, but I love it on my own terms, so I'm very selective about whom I'll go out with. I have two regular riding buddies and we get together and mostly walk and chat, with an...

    I have done just a little bit of rope work with her - just what I can do with her long cotton lead . . . so running it up and down a front leg, looping it around the fetlock and asking her to give to...

    Go to an ear doctor. I had the same thing once and it drove me NUTS!!!! It didn't happen all the time, but it was this weird clicking - for lack of a better word - thing that was happening in my...

    Most of the wrinkles that bother me are around my mouth. It is my own fault. When your mother says "don't make that face, it will stay that way!" she was right. I have a horrible habit of biting...

    I would carry a whip or a flag with you whenever you are around this horse and food to start with. If you have to blanket him, take him away from his food, tie him up so he can't turn his head...

    I think it is funny that this thread came up again and I actually haven't even gone back to read what I originally wrote! :lol:

    Ditto what McGurk said. If you don't feel comfortable hand walking, plan your rides carefully. Don't trail ride him after a day off. Don't trail ride him during or near dinner time when he's...

    Oh, Liz, I'm so sorry to hear about Benjamin - he was such a special horse.

    Enjoy your new pony - is it for riding or only companionship? Or maybe a bit of both? :winkgrin:

    Wow, this is an old thread that has come up! I'm not currently riding "western dressage," I just wondered what people wear. I'm also learning the fine art of how to ride my horse in the bosal and...

    You need to change your thinking and your self-talk. I tend to be a superstitious person so I don't even allow myself to have negative thoughts because I think they will cause the very thing that...

    That's for sure - I was so impressed with how well behaved she was from day one when I brought her home.

    I handle her every day just by nature of how I manage my herd/do my chores/rest my...

  19. What are you doing with your two-year-olds?

    I've had Princess Fancy Pants* for a month now and she's just as cute as ever. I can't wait until fly season is over because her eyes are so beautiful but she wears a fly mask all day so I can't...

    It seems so odd to me that you didn't meet your boss in the interview process - what's up with that?

    In my favorite previous job (actually two jobs - same boss took me from job #1 to job #2), I...

    I know I interrupt sometimes when I get overzealous to be like, "me, too!" I usually can be aware of it and apologize right away. I don't think I'm a chronic interrupter, though.

    Mr. PoPo, otoh,...

    Oh, I get it - I tend to over-do a correction that an instructor gives me, too. It is hard finding the right amount of pressure. And what worked today might not be what the horse needs tomorrow so...

    I have the really heavy ones, too, that I just wear in the winter. I never clean them off so they are always dirty. I stomp up to the barn in them 4 times a day, every day. Use them for chores,...
