    I haven't, but have purchased tack/ books etc. from the UK in the past. Make sure that the Ebay seller ships to the US and confirm the shipping price and be sure and google the seller as well as...

    It was much better than the first one. Not incredibly brilliant ad original or anything, but entertaining.

    I haven't had a problem and I have a few different fleece girths. I would try going over the buckles with an SOS pad and see if it comes off-- it might just be surface grunge.

    Every time I do a trace clip freehand I end up with the horse version of the kid who cuts their own bangs. But I'm always like "This time will be different! This time I will magically get it...

    I doubt any of them are in the 500 calorie range for the average rider. Maybe that's for the horse!

    Around here $1000 would be generous unless she is ready to go in the ring and do 1st level dressage or jump a nice 2'6 course.

    Will Coleman posted shortly afterward that they believed Conair had internal hemorrhaging from an injury as a result of the fall, but that is the only news I've seen.

    I would go with a specific leadline saddle as well, especially since your pony is so small. Sad true fact: I was a tiny kid and rode in mine until I was eight and showed short stirrup and jumped...

    Kent Island Metric Marathon this morning, and stopped for lunch at Wegmann's. Now I have to go home and ride my horses.

    I find that if the reins are too long, the loop/ slack at the end can catch on the edge of your saddle pad or even your toe, so you definitely don't want them too long (I have a 15 hand horse and a...

    You need to be able to sit still and write quickly and neatly in the correct boxes on the test. It's not too bad :) Look at a bunch of dressage tests and note the abbreviations used, that will make...

    I like to bring at least one of those stall chain type guards. That way you can have something across the opening at all times, even when you're mucking/ tacking up.

    If your horse has really...

    A lot depends on what their end goal is. There are a lot of half Clyde half TB crosses in this area, including a couple that have done well at Prelim and Intermediate, and a lot more that do great...

    Getting them to spectate is a great idea. Most kids want not to stand out. You could also force them to do a running braid when appropriate (i.e. any time jumper kid jumps with you in a lesson/...

    I'm guessing this one: http://www.horseandhound.co.uk/news/2-horses-died-fork-horse-trials/ but it doesn't really say anything new.

    I think it's a weird second date, sorry. Also if I were throwing a baby shower and someone asked if he could bring a woman he had just met as a date I would be annoyed.

    I would not expect your average scribe or dressage judge to blow a hunt horn or bugle 40+ times a day! I don't really see the issue with the car horn.

    I find that mud is much less of a problem than hard, slick ground-- and when I do need studs it's most often in dressage!

    Until/ unless necropsy results are released, it's impossible to do more than speculate. I'm not saying it doesn't need to be talked about, but in these two specific cases cause of death could be...

    If you don't want to fire her, just strip the bed next time and leave it with only a mattress cover. Stick the pillows/ blankets in a closet. That should be pretty clear.

    Looks like yes, that is what she's saying. I kind of dislike the idea of people riding xc as if it were a jumpoff.

    Do you have a link to the original article? I agree that this excerpt does read that way, but I'm guessing something is missing or she was quoted incorrectly.

    I think that unless people are taking insanely stupid risks, you chalk it up to bad luck and are thankful if it works out for the best. I am an adult without kids. I love to trail run/ trail ride...

    Cow hocks are a sign of a good jumper--very desirable in a cat! I have one now that has one orange foreleg and one gray/ black foreleg, and always looks kind of lame if you see her trotting head on....
