    When I foxhunt I usually ship fully tacked with a cover over the saddle. I don't do it with my draft x mare because she's so big, but with my TB it's much easier to tack him up at home.

    I also suggest trying magnesium. It has helped my OTTB. If your horse isn't deficient, it won't help but it's inexpensive and, when given orally, harmless.

    The other things that have helped my...

    I agree that the OP should return the horse whether or not she gets her money back. From what was described, it is not suitable for her needs and she is not able to train it.

    Lots of people make...

    It's less expensive to put an ad up there (I sold two saddles on that site with the regular ads) because you pay no eBay fees.

    If it's your saddle that's on eBay right now it's very nice. I would put it on Sport Horse Nation where you are going to find people looking for quality saddles and not as concerned with getting the...

    I've part leased my horses a few times. It never bothered me when people called them their own; it did bother me when they made ownership-type decisions that were outside the scope of their lease.

    This is what I do. With digital x-rays you can always stop if you find a problem or get another view if the vet feels it's warranted.

    No advice concerning the young horse classes because I have not competed in them but I had a dressage trainer who used to hunt her GP horse back in England because she thought it was good for him to...

    Some of the Bates models als have open, flatter seats. They are not generally pricey.

    I'd stay away from the old Hermes simply because they have the narrowest gullets I've ever seen. They might've...

    I had one horse who really found bits uncomfortable. He had a thick tongue and a low palate. I got him to tolerate certain bits but he loved going bitless. I used a sidepull style bridle and he loved...

    I've always liked her and I think you've done a great job with her.

    How is she XC? Do you think she'd foxhunt? I never thought Freedom would and yet he loves it. And he IS hot.

    For those...

    He was never passionate about it, but I lobbied pretty hard for crew. Rodeo vs. football vs. hockey? That's a tough call. Everyone who I know who did the rodeo gig for awhile ended up hurt. Of...

    My son is tall. When he went to high school the Football coach wanted him to play. He rowed for four years instead. Very few head injuries in crew. Plus, it's a highly recruitable sport and made a...

    Yes. I stopped competing about 8 years ago and took up foxhunting. No more entry fees, not as many trainer fees, the attire isn't trendy and no one cares if you ride in the newest saddle out there!

    One issue that I see is that kids are drinking more hard liquor now, rather than beer. When I was in college, we often drank at a local bar (no, it wasn't legal but everyone did it any way) and the...

    One of the positives of the RS article is that kids are reading it and talking about it. Probably, partially because it is in Rolling Stone. My son is a junior at UPenn and told me it was a big topic...
