    Riding in the snow is one of those things that horse ownership dreams are made of....making tracks where no one has gone, the stillness, the horse sticking their nose in it and plowing along...

    We have two saddles by the same maker. Same tree, same size. Only difference is the size and shape of the skirt. We normally use one on one horse, and the other on the other. When we change them,...

    Owners have a responsibility to train their horses to accept care. Judge the farrier on his ability to perform his task, not how well he wrestles the horse, or how long it takes to get frustrated.

    a) I am a spur user.

    b) You could ride with me for days and never see them come in contact with my horse's side. When they are, they are placed against the horse's side, and rolled, up and down....

    I thought Hidalgo was a good horse movie. I try not to get tied up in how well movies depict reality. They are "escape from reality" vehicles, by definition...:lol:

    A 10 y/o mare (15.1hh), a 5 y/o mare (15.0hh), and a 4 y/o gelding (17.0hh). All we do is ride the mares on the thousands of acres south of our house. The boy gets...

    I contest the notion that there are others, equally as good. I would also like some evidence that she's 3X more than these "equal" trimmers.

    As has been said, it kind of depends. Our are out 24.7, so they get what ever the weather brings. They are not shod.

    As was mentioned, light, fluffy snow is just plain fun, and that's really all...

    A second vote for Daisy. She may or may not be higher than others, but you get what you pay for. Best trimmer we've ever had. :)

    SE,

    I've seen this before, too. I'm gettin' here late, but I would have recommended that you talk directly to your vet. You did, and it worked out!

    We used to stable our horses when we lived in Lancaster county, PA. We live in the mountain plains of central NM now (6300'), and the horses are out 24/7. PA wasn't any colder, but it was wetter. We...

    The huge dicotomy between the way NH was practiced by Ray Hunt, et al., and the way it is practiced now has less to do with content, and more to do with the marketing, which is why I think "NH"...
