    Drinking out of the hose is for amateurs. If it is really hot and the hose is nowhere near me while I am riding and I start to get over heated, I have been known to get off the horse and scoop water...

    After money issues meant I couldn't get a horse after we sold my pony when I was a teenager, for years I used her old wool cooler as a second blanket on my bed. I only stopped because when I left the...

    I wear mine low - right above the top of my boot heel. My horse is big and my legs are short. With the spurs low, it is easier for me to do what I want when I want, verses not when I want.

    Op, it sounds like you have had some less than ideal farriers (bad work/hit horse in groin), so it is understandable that you are protective of your horses. But it sounds like you have found a good...

    A well-timed, well-placed pop with the rasp is not unreasonable. Obviously, the viscous beating described by a previous poster is absolutely unforgivable.

    Farriers are in a very vulnerable and...

    OMG, this. Without a doubt, this. I'm working with my coming 6yo who is still a bit croup high. Given his druthers, he'd go like a western pleasure pony, but he is a 17h wb/tb jumper so this is not...

    But the real question is how do I keep them off me? I've found several this summer before they were able to get their grubby little heads into me and pulled two off already. The last one hadn't even...

    Trailer fan recommendations

    I'd like to install a couple fans in my 2h straight load gn trailer. The local trailer place said to buy what I wanted and they would install them. Any recommendations for brands/types?

    Re. the question about water buckets. A bit of advice. Bring your own (multiples - the more the better) and don't allow your horse to drink out of any shared water sources. I always cringe when I see...

    I've always been a flat seat kind of girl but when I bought my last saddle, the Stubben rep brought out about 8-10 different models and I rode in them all. The one I'd poopooed on the ground as being...

    This is definitely a personal preference thing - sometimes the preference of the horse. I bought a straight load because my horse did not load/unload well in my trainer's step-up slant. He'd load ok,...

    Question. Is he pulling/lunging at the jumps, or is he focusing in and making a move to get the right spot. The first is a problem, the second is a rare treat (although not necessarily suitable for...

    Haven't been pregnant, but after watching what happened with my friend, all I can say is make sure you have a doc who understands riding. My friend fully intended to do light ring riding and focus on...

    Watching the video, it seems like her main problem is that she isn't bringing her hind end under herself. She hops when she looses her hind end bc it falls out. Her trot is sound, but occasionally...

    The horse is 3 - a mere baby. He has at least 2-3 years of growing yet to do. My 3yo started at 16'1 and is almost 17'1 three years later. Their body fills out too as they put on weight and muscle....

    5'5/17 going on 17'1. Was 16'1 when we got him as a coming 3yo and we thought he'd end up at about 16'2/16'3. His legs did not get the memo. 3 years later, we're waiting to see whether he tops out at...
