    I had this happen when I washed the liners (mine are not leather just the cheapest Velcro ones). I guess the detergent made them slippery. It took a bit to get then to stay up again. Now they work...

    In my 17 years of riding, and many many barns, I think 3 haven't done post dated cheques (6 months worth). One did direct deposit, then the last 2 were per month (the least 'show barns' ) . I believe...

    Why don't you ask for 3-6 months worth of post dated checks for board. That's what the large majority of the barns I have ever been at have done. Then you can just deposit them right on the day that...

    Interesting replies. And thanks for stopping in and giving a bit more details Mr. Gage. Can I add a few more questions.

    Well, if the injury was to the DDFT why would it not be referred to as a DDFT injury no matter where on the tendon it was? Maybe it's less likely to be injured higher up I don't know, but I've...

    I would ask the trainer how he/she wants you to handle this, if you are working under their guidance/with 'their' horses.

    The DDFT doesn't just extend up the heel bulb, it goes all the way to the knee/hock, so someone asking how you support the DDFT is like someone asking how to support a suspensory because they both...

    Looks like a matte pad or something similar. Hard to tell exactly from the pics.

    Thanks for the replies! I think I will add a $100 a month 'random purchases' category and see how that does. I am definitely showing (wanting to do 1-2 gold rated shows a month during the summer) so...

    I've been showing for 15 years. For that period of time it's always been hunter braids that I have ever seen. The first 8 of those years I strictly showed hunters.

    My least favorite one is where they have a 20 min video and the first 17 mins of it consists of them catching the horse, walking if up to the barn, tying it up, currying it, brushing it, picking it's...

    That's because being properly turned out for work has different 'requirements' than being properly turned out for hunters. For hunters, hunter braids equal proper turn out.

    Yes, I was in that boat when I was looking for barns this last time. I did make sacrifices, but was able to find a barn that seems to be working. Just gotta figure out what you can and can't live...

    How do You Budget?

    I started budgeting in about October of last year when I took over all my horse expenses. Thought I'd at least try not go into debt with the hundreds of added costs per month associated with my...

    ya, go with your gut and then keep a vigilant eye. Try not to be 'that' boarder asking for favors and special treatment and such, but make sure you directly (politely) address issues that need to be...

    I think, if I'm understanding what you're saying, that since his mane is now such a mess I would keep the mane to the left for this season where the mistakes will hopefully be hidden better. Then...

    No one is saying that pretty bad performances should win. We are saying that being properly turned out is important.

    Those braids may be fine for the jumper ring but are still not acceptable in the hunter ring. Hunter braids are called HUNTER braids for a reason, that is what one should do in a hunter ring. Button...

    My last horse didn't have papers. We still competed on the A/Gold circuit up to 3'6 in both hunters and jumpers and won quite a bit.

    I don't really think the horse market is ever 'good' for a horse like this. Realistically, there just are VERY few people who want an 'old' horse that has been out of work for half it's life that has...

    That is very interesting. I didn't see one 'true' auto release (straight line from bit to elbow) in the bunch despite it looking like a big mix of many nationalities. From that you gotta wonder if...

    We usually do 4 days off with normal turnout (for my horse that's 24/7 turnout), a couple lighter days, not jumping too big for that week then back to normal.
