    I don't know how you do it! My guy is older and I worry that a layoff would do more harm than good at this point. I was considering it, but I just don't think I'd make it and I'm not convinced it...

    My guy is a rocking OTTB. I gallop him in the hills all the time, and he knows the routine, so it's super easy to stop....

    I got the cleaner and deodorizer spray on a whim when they were on sale at a local tack store. I was pleasantly surprised--they worked great and were super easy to use. I got them half off, but even...

    If you called and left a message with your address, a catalog should show up in the mail shortly. They never called me back about that, but I've gotten one annually since then.

    It depends on you.

    I did the thing we're all supposed to do--I didn't have a job, didn't ride (I didn't own, so I quit leasing), and focused on school for the first semester.

    You know what? I...

    I thought the cavesson ran a little small, and the cheekstraps a little long.

    If you have one repeat offender, try to account for them. You're definitely bust at the barn until 2pm.

    If it's multiple offenders, um, maybe new friends?
