    Here is another thing I would gladly pay for. I am horse shopping and will use a trainer to make a final decision, but in...

    About those huge gawdy bows, I am not so sure it is the kids who crave them. I think it is more their moms.

    One of mine is sort of like that. Most of the time I compromise a little -- he can look a bit but he cannot change his body or his pace. It is too exhausting to try to constantly keep him busy.

    I hate to be a downer, but that does not sound safe at all. In fact, it sounds like a coop type jump I had out in my jump field that I hated so much I removed it. It had thin planks (afraid of...

    I actually think the high prices are somewhat justified. Not that I can pay that or would want to.

    You can go buy a really nice youngster -- don't care what breed -- and raise it and train it...

    Maddening I am sure! I guess you have suggested to seller that they contribute?

    But in the end, paid or not, if you release them, as others have said, it will be best for the horse. Maybe with...

    I gave mine away, but I liked both the seller and the other potential buyer very much.

    Agree with the others who suggest that you also do some light work on the harder ground. And let him warm up a bit out there, especially at a trot. I have always heard that a variety of footings...

    Sorry double post.
  12. Isn't it now standard practice in h/j world to pull blood in PPE?

    Don't sellers now expect that during a PPE, the buyer's vet will pull blood?

    Not necessarily for testing right away, but just to have just in case horse dramatically changes? Apparently there...

    I think it is raw manuka honey you are looking for. I use it for certain wounds. I cannot really explain when I use a cream and when I use honey, but it may be that I tend to pack deeper wounds...

    I got some good help on one I started that should come up with "late change behind", but hey, you tried, I think you should ask away. Just specify that you are hunter and can live with front to back...

    Not trying to throw a wrench in the works, but I went the inhaler/mask route at first, but then switched to a nebulizer that I could hold right up to my horse's nostrils. By that time, he had...

    Yeah, per the above, I think that is too much to ask, for SmartPak to exchange a bridle that you punched holes in.

    Maybe just get some cob cheekpieces? They are easy to find and not expensive. I do it all the time for my bridles.

    I have one for which the cob bridle is way too small in the crown and browband....

    Over the years, the two things I think are best for my tails are flax and Pantene conditioner. For the flax, each gets a little coffee grinder full each night. The Pantene is grocery store people...

    The OP's message made plenty of sense to me. Horses have idiosyncrasies, and part of what makes horses fun is learning them.

    Riding not about following a set of rules. Good to have lots of...
  20. Truck lurching when up shifting to third

    Friday I was hauling my two horse GN with one horse in it to trainer. Haul truck is 2001 Chevy 2500 HD but with only about 90,000 miles.

    Whenever it needed to shift up from 2d to 3d (I think I...

    Add me to your fan club. I am 61. I tell people not to watch me get on; I protect my old achy hip by clambering aboard from a very high mounting block. But once I am in the saddle, I feel years...

    I'm with The Crone, probably because I am 61 and ride alone on farm. I am about to buy a Quarter Horse, that is not the fanciest horse available, but just seems so quiet and easy and pleasant. He...

    I can't make a distance, don't even try. I work constantly on my jumping canter, and then just try to know what is going to happen (tight, long or right on). But this is probably only helpful to...
