  1. A cracked out hunter class might be kinda funny!...

    A cracked out hunter class might be kinda funny! All joking aside, though, the USEF rules apply to all disciplines and breeds that fall under USEF governance. That includes Arabs and Saddlebreds,...
  2. Precisely. I go to Portland monthly or more for...

    Precisely. I go to Portland monthly or more for work and traffic is NOTHING there, especially if you're used to city traffic. There are a ton of hidden gems within a 30-60 minute drive to downtown. ...
  3. Stay in the PNW, but move to the Portland area....

    Stay in the PNW, but move to the Portland area. It has many of the things you appreciate about the Seattle area, but not as expensive, plus it's close enough to Seattle that it would be easy to visit...

    My favorite (now deceased) mare's gorgeous triple stitched leather halter and matching lead, with nameplates. It currently hangs in my barn, on the rack with the other halters. Someday I'll do...

    Beau159 I have been in your shoes. I had a mare who was like that. I bought her as a yearling and I ended up losing her in the spring of 2014 to a pasture accident, 2 months short of her 8th...

    Many off the shelf tall boots aren't going to go over a men's 12. Even if you find some, they're going to be $$$$. If I were you I'd look into custom Dehner boots. You'll pay around $1000/1200 for a...

    I prefer a technical fabric riding shirt in white, simply because it is easier to pack for a show when I know my shirt will work either with or without a jacket. Basically I'm lazy :lol:. That being...

    Kit Ehrman is the author of the Steve Cline mysteries.

    I'd also throw in the Thea Campbell mysteries by Susan Schreyer, the Eddie Malloy series by Richard Pitman and Joe McNally, and the Peter...

    I've only been in a couple barns like that, but the ceilings were pretty high. One barn was a Morgan show barn, with the aisles set up for driving. Probably 14' at the lowest points. The other I...

    My first mare was extremely mouthy and we went through a ton of bits before finding something she was happy in. There are two bits I would definitely put on your list to try. First, a french link or...
  11. I live even further down the valley than MVP,...

    I live even further down the valley than MVP, otherwise I'd have a couple of trainers to recommend to you. I feel your struggle, though, for me it's a matter of my work schedule not fitting with my...

    Currently on season 3 of Death in Paradise. Crime drama/comedy from the BBC, set in the Caribbean. The crimes are fairly predictable, but the characters are very likeable. The only downside is that...

    Well, she hasn't tried going after the goldfish yet :lol:.
  14. I would have done the same thing if those were my...

    I would have done the same thing if those were my horses. It is absolutely not safe to try to grab a strange dog in that situation, and sometimes they can't be scared off. Much better to shoot the...

    Foam pads are your friend here. Get a piece of cut to size foam pad and cut out a piece big enough to overlap your hardware by about an inch. You may have to layer it to get the right height to...

    Depends entirely on the horse and the environment. My current horse is shod on all 4 and goes 6 weeks in spring/summer/early fall and 8-10 weeks late fall/winter based on hoof growth. My previous two...

    The quality seems to be fairly inconsistent. Mine have lasted 60+(?) rides and a 3 mile hike over a fairly rough trail when my mare came up lame on a trail ride and I had to get off and walk her back...
  18. A properly cared for leather girth will last...

    A properly cared for leather girth will last longer than a synthetic, but it is really down to what your horse does best in. The synthetic girths are (usually) less expensive, which sort of makes up...

    There's enough to do in Lex for an entire vacation, let alone a long weekend. I was in Kentucky last year for the Oaks and the Derby and did a couple of days in Lexington before going to Louisville....

    So cool! I wonder how prices/quality will compare with what is available already though.

    :lol:This cracked me up! All I can think of is someone passed out surrounded by partially eaten eggplants.

    As an aside, I adore each and every veggie on that list. Tomatoes are my favorite: I eat...

    The third horse in the ring (the chestnut) would be welcome in my barn any time. What a gorgeous horse!

    I have the ovation girth and love it. I've heard great things about the tsf girths, but haven't tried one yet since the ovation worked out so well.

    I've never owned either brand, but I've ridden in both and definitely prefer the thorowgood. They just seem to be built better and out of better materials than the wintecs. Of course, the fit, for...

    I'm with Laurierace on the MRI. With spinal problems, other than showing fractures, xrays are almost completely useless.

    I fractured C5 in 2011 and have a free floating chip on the anterior side....
