    Wow, I should clearly rethink what I charge for stuff like this.

    We had a mare one year with a hematoma the vet described as "basketball size". She was a TB and the vet said breeding live cover would be very risky, breeding A I would be a little risky (not an...

    I generally go with a French link (or some other double joint) unless I have reason to think the horse prefers single jointed.

    This. I have one horse with a 14+ foot stride. Letting him make the decisions jumping in to a tight line/ turn etc does not work. My little guy with the perfect 12' stride meets everything just...

    I think you're talking about a very small moment in time for a very elite social group, is my point. It wasn't the universal experience even in 1880 s New England.

    I was in it from 7-21. My dad was a graduate B and my sister and I were both C3s, and my poor mom ended up as DC for many years. Pony Club made it possible and affordable for us to try eventing/...

    I absolutely never use the locker room at the gym unless my personal maid can hold up a sheet for me to change behind, so I totally sympathize.

    We had a foal with a lump that turned out to be a saucer fracture there (his dam stepped on him, ouch), and after a couple of rounds of shockwave it went away completely. They do heal really well...

    It's a pretty expensive and time consuming hobby. Find a horse who lets you enjoy it.

    Gotta say doing steeplechase before dressage with my tbs would not have done my dressage much good! I always hope to get the dressage done before anyone starts jumping!

    YES. I would like to see some actual statistics for this theory.

    There are definitely some eventing barns in the Carlisle/ Harrisburg area and a strong foxhunting/ pony club presence.

    Bartville Harness is probably 40 minutes or so away, too. It's the Amish tack shop that makes a lot of the Nunn Finer stuff.

    You used to get some extra insurance coverage but I think now there is an additional charge for it. You do get a few discounts I think (Smartpak, for example) but I don't usually join until I'm...

    Yep that's one of my all time favorites. I do think Wes Anderson and Quentin Tarantino both make movies you either love or hate.

    It probably makes the most sense from a competition viewpoint to go with the PHR. If you are planning to breed or sell it might be worth looking into warmblood registries.

    I don't think three or four thousand threads posted on COTH would cure mental illness. Try therapy and drugs.

    Five days is really not that long to settle in. Can the new owner talk to the place he was previously and see if they have suggestions? I would probably give him another week or ten days and if it...

    Unless the other rider is confident and comfortable riding him through it, they are better off standing quietly in the middle. This shouldn't really affect the training since he is not being put in...

    Maybe she doesn't actually like it, or maybe she feels bad talking about it in front of you, knowing that you can't afford it? In any case I think it's weird to hold a grudge that she didn't thank...

    I save money by pre- buying my event entries as much as possible-- many local groups have silent auctions that get donated entries. I got 4 recognized horse trials entries and 4 unrecognized...
