    Congrats for getting on! I've found that sometimes my frustration with being a nervous rider outweighs my fear, and I just get the f$@k on, no matter what. Not very often, though. Early on, I...

    We have one elderly barn cat and she's smart enough to stay well clear of the rats. What we need is a way to protect around 30 bags of grain at a time. Metal garbage cans wouldn't hold enough. Thanks...

    Thanks for all the great ideas--we hadn't thought about a four-legged rat-killer. I love the cunning trap suggestions, too. Will pass them on to the barn owner.

    Rats!

    Our barn has suddenly acquired some VERY hungry rats who have chewed open the grain bags and helped themselves. I'd love to know how others keep their grain rat-proof. The problem is finding a...

    I came off twice this spring and those falls really did a number on my confidence, even though they were't really serious. The real damage was that I stopped trusting my horse, and he knew it. He'd...

    Why not download it and open it up when you're in range of WiFi to save on data? Then you'd know what to put on before you leave for the barn. Just a thought.

    You're reading his bio and you haven't noticed that his last name is actually Reeve?

    My trainer sets them up for us in a fan, with the close end about 4 1/2 foot lengths apart, and the wide end being about 6 1/2 foot lengths apart. That way I can choose to ask my horse to shorten or...

    You could check eBay for a good price on a Supracor. I nabbed one for less than half of retail, and my horse and I love it.

    I had a great experience with them when I traded in my Bates all-purpose for (eventually) a Karl Niedersuss. Luckily, I live about an hour away, so I was able to leave my saddle, and keep trying a...

    My horse is awful about eating when he's got any kind of meds in his grain. The secret this time around to cover up the taste of his Doxy (for Lyme) was a couple of handfuls of wet alfalfa cubes. He...

    Why not ask your current boarders what they'd be happy with? Also, I'd be concerned about how busy the ring would be. I rode at a barn with a small than regulation indoor, and it was insane on the...

    Goodness! That seems pricy! Check out Smartpak:500 x500mg pills for about $53.00, plus free shipping if others at your barn get regular shipments from them. I think my vet sells the same amount for...

    My first thought is why haven't you found a saddle fitter the check the fit instead of trying to fix the problem with pads?

    If the sale was done through eBay, you absolutely can use their clout to help you either get your saddle back or get paid for the sale. They act pretty quickly in situations like this.
