    Mamage has also won multiple national championships in saddleseat.

    I started with Arabians as my first horses. I was 40+ and green green green. So were the horses. :eek:

    However, I had a great...

    :lol:

    The guy who started my horse was a QH trainer who had never trained or ridden any Arabs before. Everything was going great for a few weeks, until one day Horse gave Trainer a little attitude...

    Yup. With my horses (all p.b. Arabs), you can tell exactly what they like, what they don't like and what they find highly suspicious. And I'd much rather have that emotion showing plain as day on the...

    While your older child is taking a lesson, please don't walk around the barn with your 3 y.o., allow her to walk behind my horse and pet him on the hind legs while I'm tacking up.

    Please do not...

    So do I! In fact, I'm more like late middle age, even with 50 being the new 30 or whatever nonsense is being spouted now.

    My experience is similar to exvet's (although she rides a lot better than I do ;)).

    I have a short-coupled, short-backed Arabian who is round round round with a forward girth groove. Even though...

    Yes, every ride.



    No.

    My horse (like most) is stickier on one side than the other. Some days we work through the resistance on that side quite well. Other days, not so much. But when we're...

    Unreasonable, no. But the anonymity of note #1 was weird.

    This isn't a case of leaving a note on some stranger's windshield who's taken up two spaces in a crowded parking lot. These people are...

    I've had Thanksgiving at our house for the last 20+ years. I would not consider having anything other than turkey. I love it and all the traditional things that go with it, starting with the gravy....

    This.

    "I'm not going to tell you who I am, but I will tell you what to do." Most inappropriate, IMO, and not the behavior of someone who wants to compromise or discuss the issue. Just wants to...
