    OK, be careful of stacking green wood to make a jump, or at least the top rail of one. I was foxhunting in Virginia one Thanksgiving weekend years ago, on a green hireling, and we had a RIPPING day...

    Any of them will be fine to be honest; that run's a straight-shot without overnight layovers or any unloading, generally. You want to get someone who does the MA and NY to FL run on a weekly or...

    I'd jump the second version, with the bendy pole on top; just make sure that pole, tree branch, whatever isn't so green (newly cut) that it would spring up if you rapped it hard (don't ask me how I...

    Pony Express, Judge Manning, W.J. Barry, Bob Hubbard and Creech I've personally had exemplary experiences with.

    Avoid NationWide like the plague.

    And the right wing of the GOP would like us to roll the clock back to 1950, too--barefoot, pregnant, and in the kitchen. Not gonna happen! Can't put that genie back in the bottle.

    And just like...

    We have to eliminate the opportunities to show. Pure and simple. Once again, if no one sponsors this or provides them with a venue, it'll have to go underground just like dog fighting. Then, they...

    I would put her down and move on. The world is over-full of horses who are perfectly fine and need a committed owner and a job to do. Unless you can afford a permanent pasture retirement (and she...

    Y'know, Bluey, the talking points of activist organizations of all kinds are no different from the talking points of political parties. Yeah, their "perfect world" would look like thus-'n-so. But...

    Count on it.

    But the horses all COME from somewhere. Every week, people who are mostly not-evil, possibly just "practical" or clueless or believing in luck, load their horses up and drive them to...

    Years ago we had no "horse massage," we had old-time GROOMS who were what an Englishman would call good "strappers." They rubbed horses a LOT, and they used some serious elbow grease doing it. ...

    Agreed. The problem out west is tax shelter breeders. Ranchers who run a stallion with a herd of mares for a few years, and occasionally round up the progeny for a "dispersal." They breed 25 fair...

    Take a good look at what's there--mini's, donks, and off-breed "road horses," most of whom are coming from ONE source that for some reason gets a pass on substandard animal care, overbreeding AND...

    This is the establishment in question's own website, as opposed to the related FB group: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Cranbury-Sale-Stable/751937054862253

    My first teacher had a saying: "Costs just as much to feed a bad horse as a good one!" His definition of "bad" was one you just can't get along with for whatever reason. Doesn't mean you're doing...

    No, Cranbury Sales Stable is **NOT** a "rescue." As per their name, they are a HORSE DEALING ESTABLISHMENT. Even the "CHW Horse Weekly" FB page is not a "rescue," it is a group of volunteers who...

    Circa 1910, fancy-stitched doeskin seat Whitman side-saddle with a 10-hole adjustment for the leaping head, built on a "suspension" type military tree. Got this out of a barn's teardown sale where...

    Those descriptions don't come from the networking volunteers, they come from whatever basket of hoo-haa the consigning owner told the auction house. Last week someone took home a horse advertised as...

    The people promoting, perpetuating, and enabling Big Lick are mostly very well known to the other trainers, breeders, owners, etc. and this is a tightly regional phenomenon for the most part,...

    HSUS is not perfect by a long shot, but . . . who would have stopped this if they weren't there? :uhoh:

    Perhaps more reasonably-minded people should become voting members, and change their focus...

    For the record, I've been keeping and working with horses for over 45 years now and have yet to EVER hear one "scream." Whinny, nicker, squeal, bellow, snort, and high-blow, but never "scream." ...

    Define "lame rider." What if he falls off in the warmup? Or is limping to the mounting block because he got stepped on in the stall? You going to test him for a hangover, sleep deprivation and...

    . . . annnnd maybe you're overstating "the pain," given that you have less experience to compare it to, you're going to be empathizing more since you're the owner, and you yourself may have a low...

    Ordinarily, a vet understands a BM to be the horse's "primary caregiver," the one who is in contact with the horse the most and also has a professional's eye. Most ammie-owners don't know what most...
