    I rode many years on many horses in the same saddle, as did the trainer I worked for. Did it fit everyone perfectly, like a custom? No, but with a little padding here, a little less there, most...

    I think this is so dependent on the person and the type of relationship. With my dad, we all just enjoyed the last days we had with him, told him we loved him, and otherwise tried to make him and...

    It could also be as simple as his grooming? Do you curry him regularly? Use a rub rag? If he's otherwise healthy but not getting elbow grease, he may not be as shiny as he could be. You could also up...

    If she's safe and quiet and can teach someone the ropes at that level, than I would say schoolmaster might not be inappropriate. I used to call my retired guy a novice schoolmaster (eventing). Not a...
  5. Why wouldn't it be? They paid their money,...

    Why wouldn't it be? They paid their money, there's no wait list, so why would it matter if they decide to just do the dressage. Sometimes people make that decision in advance, sometimes they make the...

    Whatever you do, don't go to the so called "Irish pub" we went to a few years ago during Midsouth. We had a tradition of eating at whatever local Irish type pub we could find, so googled for one in...
  7. The trainer I worked for for years did not charge...

    The trainer I worked for for years did not charge by event, but was al la carte. Mostly because he didn't think it was fair to charge a flat rate, then have a conflict with his own rides or another...

    I've used one and was happy with what it did. I DO think they help remind you where things belong, and after wearing one for an extended period of time, I definitely sat up better. A friend has been...

    While I agree with this wholeheartedly and have no qualms with bumping up bits as needed, I do find that a lot of people, especially LL riders with no or bad guidance, bit up because they either...

    As an eventer, I always made a point to school and practice my tests on grass, as so many events have dressage on grass. It can make a huge difference. I've had horses, even with schooling at home on...

    I personally think you can't go wrong with either. I haven't run anything but prelim at Fair Hill, but the courses all look nice, fun, and straight forward. I did training at Kelly's Ford a couple of...

    I might be up for something, depending on when, what, and where.
  13. I'm not exactly sure where you are located, but...

    I'm not exactly sure where you are located, but it really hasn't mattered this year. This winter has SUCKED and a lot of horses' condition has slipped because of it. I know I am playing catch up with...

    I know far too many people who get out of horses for some reason or another, them have to scramble when life turns the table again and they are able to ride/own again. I would try to keep at least...

    You all convinced me. I'll take it easy. Especially since I woke up feeling like I got kicked in the face this morning, and my nose feels like they tried to break it and pull it through the roof of...

    Don't be fooled. It isn't an easy process. I'm only partway through. I had 4 extractions yesterday, three implants, and one that has to wait until the bone is a little more healed. The pretty new...
  17. Implants. Ugh.

    Implants. Ugh.

    Well, a gentle hack through the fields SHOULDN'T raise my heart rate, right???

    Ugh, OP, I feel for ya. I used to ride a nice little Arab cross mare who's owner insisted on her having a long mane. We weren't showing at a very high level, but she would have been a lovely little...
  20. Is riding exercise? Because, if it is, supposedly I can't ride for a week.

    I faced my biggest fear yesterday (and, I do mean biggest) and finally got my smile fixed via oral surgery and dental implants. I look awesome. Breaking your leg kinda makes you reevaluate what real...

    Don't use regular ice cubes, like out of your freezer. You need something like this. I've seen them on the Target website, too. These keep their shape, so won't bunch at the bottom. Place it on the...

    Funny, I have Cadilac conditioner that I use on my boots. Good stuff. I'll put it on my girth next time I'm at the barn.

    Ha! That thread made me giggle. Ah, memories.

    The Ice Horse system SUCKS. My former employer bought one and I could never get it to get a leg consistently cold. It is a far, sad cry from a Game...

    The last open house I hosted we had food and drinks set up in the main barn, and then welcomed guests to have a wander around. Everyone who was involved with the farm was around to answer questions,...

    Ugh. That cyclist gives the rest of the cyclists a bad name and is exactly why people get so cranky about them. I am very protective of them around here, as I cycle and have many friends and family...
