    Yep. Simple abuse IMO. She should contact the rescue fand try to give the horse back - maybe they'll rescue the poor mare from
    HER.

    See to me that's a good wage for a groom but not at all what I'd consider sufficient to retire early, not by a mile. But then, it's all relative. If board or room and board are included, it's...

    This. Yes, new fabric is significantly more durable! By a mile. You'd have to give me the old style breeches as freebies.

    Sample size of 1 but methinks they don't stay cute for long. Even the micro-mini I know grew and grew and became one ugly sow. And I mean ugly...

    You come from SF. NYC traffic isn't worse than that. You'll be fine. Might take some creativity. I ride on LI but I live in Queens, so no help.

    New horse to you, chronic neck and back pain, and you can't afford another? I think that's enough reason to put him down. Personally I'd retire him somewhere - or at least try it for a year to see...

    It's a myth that a horse with a good appetite wouldn't have ulcers. I know that first-hand. Had my mare scoped when she seemed uncomfortable after riding on an empty stomach. Nasty ulcers. Never once...

    Great leather.

    I believe that's what I bought a few years ago and called the rep the next day to come back and replace with a custom Antares Jump saddle. If the Spooner works for you, great. It...

    So sorry. It's hard not to second-guess yourself, but it wasn't your fault. You did all you could. You did all any of us could. Bubba knew you were trying to help him.

    Sounds about right from what I've heard, for a quality job. I'd certainly be careful to get it done right. Beval would probably be a very good place to go for a quote.

    That pony is adorable!! And I agree she's being a very good girl in those videos. I'm not at all convinced she's useless based on that video. I think your farrier might prove the trainer wrong.

    Agree that if she's inside she would probably be quite happy nekkid. That said, my boy LOVES his Baker. It's soft and breathable. He doesn't seem to over-heat in it. Of course, he's an oldster not...

    Not for a second. Just got back from Ireland - had a great time, felt safer than at home. I live in NYC and, yes, it's always a target. Then there are other dangers. Live your life. Don't let them...
