    Sadly, no. None that I know of. You could possibly look in the UK for fun colors that are more appealing for boys. It is a shame no one thinks to make schooling britches for kids that aren't pink or...

    I think my guy has the rabicano gene. His flanks get more and more roaning every year and his tail has a lot of white at the top. He's about as plain brown/black as you could get otherwise (and...

    I set the rhythm and jump out of that...well, that's the goal. I may change the rhythm to influence a closer spot, but I don't say "leave here." I'm usually wrong when I ride like that.

    Most trainers I have EVER know (that are decent people) want two things out of their students horses: that they be safe, and that they be the kind of horse to top 5 (no matter the level). It's fun to...

    I grew up in Richmond and still get the urge to go back on occasion. Just a really cool place to live. I wish I had spent more time there as an actual adult because I know I missed out on a lot of...

    (And then said horse was in the, what? Top 20? After dressage in the two star at Fair Hill last fall. Trainers can be wrong).

    She has spent two years trying to make this horse an eventer. My guess is she's done just that. Another six months isn't going to change anything. I opted to give one horse "a little more time" after...

    If he is other wise sound and happy, you have two option, in my opinion: sell him to a home that he'll be happy in, or find an activity that you'll both enjoy together. I honesty wouldn't bother with...

    The lightest weight I can think of would be a Jeffries Flyover. Pretty sure it's wool flocked, but I can find out pretty easy.

    Consider me a snob, because I am all for looking neat and tidy. I fully admit to wanting to smack people I see out in public in pajamas and Uggs, though, so I come by it naturally.

    Time and rest. Cracked ribs are the worst. When I had my gnarly crash awhile back and broke my leg, I also cracked a rib or two....I was on crutches with cracked ribs. There were many time my ribs...

    Honestly, I wouldn't worry about it very much. I am not s big advocate of lungeing, anyway, and prefer teaching young horses to ground drive (as what they learn in that translate better to ridden...

    I prefer to make them go forward. Carry a dressage whip and reach behind you and give him a solid swat when he dives. Be prepared to be quick with your feet so you can stay with him as he might zip...

    It is a great book. I do really love how he talks about being friends with your horse and making things fun and interesting. I have no tolerance for people who treat horses like emotionless machines.

    It's actually not fiction, but reads as such, but my favorite book is "Devil and the White City."

    Britches. Hate schooling tights (though I have a pair of pull on winter Kerrits that I hate but are warm). Occasionally I'll wear jeans if I'm in a hurry after work or too lazy to change out of them....

    The horse I had before Toby I was crazy for. I adored him. I had found him by accident as a 3 year old and gotten him up to prelim/one star-ish. He lived to run and jump and was a scopey dude with...

    Yes. I've been personally involved with two eventers that went on to be Eq horses (not Adv horses, but a solid one star horse and a horse that had gone prelim but just wasn't brave enough). They both...

    He's an Eq horse, not a hunter. They probably won't change his name. And if he's damn good as an Eq horse (which if they can sell him at WEF for big bucks, he is) they don't need to keep options...

    Similar to my horse. Very sensitive mouth but runs a bit hot but gets easily overwhelmed by too much bit or too heavy of a hand. A Waterford seems to have been the bit we've been looking for for...

    This isn't going to help ton, but I used to use a vet that I loved but who would occasionally have a vet I wouldn't let near my horses do her emergencies if she was away. She knew how I felt, and...

    Probably the most benefit I ever saw from walking fences was with a saintly, honest to a fault Irish hunter that had landed in bad hands. With that person, he was punished over every fence in the...

    Totally believe it. Have slept in a room with the bed on the same wall as the door and slept very poorly. I try hard to stick the the general principles (some of the smaller ones, like not keeping...

    I would just say they are all spoken for. The accident doesn't bother me. It's the obvious poor dog handling.

    And, I just want to add that everyone grieves very differently. I went two weeks...

    I tried Quick Black on my sometimes black, sometimes dark brown horse when I first got him and was seriously underwhelmed. The best thing for his coat is good grooming and lots of fat. If/when I...
