  1. Horse-related magazines for the young male rider?

    I want to give a gift subscription to my nephew. He's seven, and has been taking riding lessons for almost a year. The kids never leave the ring, and it's a group of five or six kids with one...

    What are the odds? :lol:

    Actually, now that y'all mention it, I remember reading the Singer elephant book. I'm going to be hiding my own Easter eggs before long.

    NOT the same author! :lol: Sara Gruen wrote Riding Lessons, Flying Changes, Water for Elephants. All of which I think are sentimental badly researched drivel.

    I think the square toes are on the way out, at least judging by what's on super sale at TSC right now. And what's not. I don't like square-toes to ride in.

    I can't even wear my paddock boots to...

    I agree. For years that worked out pretty well here. But this year, with one of the pillars of the hunt community out of commission, and because this group has a reputation for making bad stuff...
  6. Another update - looking forward to New Year's Day

    OK, so since my last post, the BIL who called the game warden has had his house broken into and his gun collection and cash stash stolen.

    I've lost two hens, and would've lost a third had my...

    I think you're right. :yes: I met my nieces for lunch in Asheville over Thanksgiving, and found a store that sells vintage belt buckles (that's about it, too - oh, and custom made sandals - very...

    Old thread. :)

    But I'll reply anyway. Again. For a long time, we had a choice of either a. use a GP vet to do teeth, since s/he could safely sedate, but of course s/he wouldn't have nearly the...

    Don't watch TV, except for GMA while I'm in and out feeding critters, which is how I heard about this.

    First off: is the snake OK?

    Secondly - had this gone according to plan, did the person...

    Here's the link to the story about PETA stealing a a 9 yr old girl's pet chihuahua and killing it - and then coming back later to leave a fruit basket.

    No way in hell would I send that letter. I...

    I am the first to admit that the plural of anecdote is not data. However, I ride in a Fabtron Lady Trail synthetic saddle and my schoolie is overjoyed to see me coming. I don't do long rides,...

    OK, so I tried all the different suggestions today - haven't ridden since my post due to holiday travelling - and the Beverley method worked best for me. :)

    Left hand with reins on neck, right...

    I love goeslikestink's posts.

    When I first got into horses I found a BB for new riders that was very helpful. It was UK-based, though, so for years I said things like headcollar and numnah that...

    Thanks, Beverley! Hand on the horn it is.

    My horse is only 15.1 hh, and I'm 5'8", so in theory I can leave one foot in the stirrup till the other one is on the ground. In practice, it may...

    UPDATE: A man in the community told my BIL that a group of hunters (well known to stray from the letter of law given the opportunity) has been intentionally hunting the farm during working hours. ...
  16. How to avoid hanging self by belt when dismounting?

    Last weekend, I kicked my right foot out of the stirrup, brought my right leg over the cantle, then took my left foot out and prepared to slide down.

    Only my slide was abruptly arrested. Before...

    Cindyg, thank you for that link! I'm going to download it to my tablet and read it over Thanksgiving. Somebody should've written that book a long time ago - like, before I got my first horse :lol:...

    Two things might be helpful.
    1. A Black's Law Dictionary. I remember my first year of law school I had to look up every other word, it seemed. :) But it really really helps to know what all the...

    ZOMG. I would have crawled behind the fridge and hidden till they got home!

    I was nine when the murders happened. We lived all the way across the country, but they still freaked me out. Even...

    Thanks to this thread, I downloaded Susan Atkins's book she wrote with her husband (who married her in prison after reading her first book). It's called The Myth of Helter Skelter.

    Absolutely right! He should have been fertilizing some part of a potters field in Ca long ere this.

    Manson is a murderer. Doesn't matter, under the law, that he didn't wield the knife himself...

    So y'all help me out here. I just read the last one, and somewhere in there it says Sister Jane's maiden name was Overton. I could've sworn an earlier book said she was an Overdorff before she...

    My name peaked in 1930. :lol: I guess my mother was only about thirty years behind the curve.

    To be fair, though, she named me after my great-grandmother. I wonder why people don't seem to name...

    Please. South Carolina.

    North Carolina, when it comes to dirty politics, can't even carry our tool boxes. :lol:

    When John McCain was running for President, we had robo calls asking "would...

    Old news. And yeah, I thought it was a classless move on Sheheen's part. I still voted for him, but that's because I think Haley has been a bad governor.

    Not defending him, but putting it in...
