    I purchased on my own. I trust my own eye and knew what I wanted (youngster with potential for FEI). I wasn't really supposed to be in the market and didn't have money for commission si that want...

    Well, they're definitely going somewhere. They ship out trucks full from several lots here in WA every week and there is no shortage of horses to fill them. At least the ones here get fed, the place...

    Can I glom onto this thread too? I'm thinking about ordering a Thorowgood for my youngster to use until he's finished growing. I know the T8 is leather/synthetic... Is it significantly nicer than the...

    Yeah, I really hated those neighbors for letting him out like that. I met him because one day I heard meowing from our big front tree. I go out expecting to find a cat and a giant white bird swoops...

    I think we have to be clear... There are "amateurs" and there are amateurs. I'm an AA but I've ridden my entire life, I'm a serious competitive rider, and I trained my current horse to FEI -...

    Very cool... We've got a group of Ravens that owe me some trinkets though... They got a good two dozen old eggs the other day. They kept flying past my kitchen window with them in their mouths. It...

    I'm probably in the minority... It wouldn't take much to sway me. I am lucky to have property so my raising costs are smaller than many and I have the ability to keep multiple horses. I bought my...

    You are talking about the weather. While weather events are/can be related to the climate, the weather is NOT the same as the climate. And in fact, what you describe is EXACTLY the kind of phenomenon...

    Make sure you have all of your paperwork in order to cross state lines. As far as the stall thing goes - most horses are fine for the short time they'll be at the shows, but do practice and make sure...

    Dammit you guys! I need like two weeks here to go to all of these places, they all sound amazing!

    I'm noting all of these because I'll likely be back for work in the future... I may have to plan...

    I ordered it from Karlynn Equestrian up in Canada. Best part about it is that is under $200! Mine is the BR Zenith Crystal Sky. It's a really flattering helmet too - not to bulky.

    This is just a guess but I don't think we see it because it takes so many years and so much work to make a top dressage horse. It just wouldn't make sense to switch disciplines at that point. There...

    Personally I think dressage is incredibly helpful for jumpers and jumping is incredibly helpful for dressage horses - I'm a big fan of cross training. As a former eventer I'd also say that you can...

    I ended up with a navy shad and it looked really beautiful with my chestnut. My youngster is almost-black and also looks beautiful in navy so I decided to get rid of black all together.
