    I have seen ponies compete in Modified Adult Hunters and Eq in my area (MA/ New England). The specs around here do not specify horse or pony. In my experience, at least in this area, the modifieds...

    I use Broadstone as an agent also, and for the first time this year am using XL for coverage. When I shopped around with a couple of agents and a few different insurance companies, XL seemd like the...

    When I am actively showing, paying the membership fee doesn't bother me and as BostonHJ pointed out, it works out to about $10/ month + the USHJA fee. However, I would never bother paying that fee if...

    I only join when I am showing, that is true for all of the horse related organizations I join. Honestly, if I were going to support any horse organizations when I am not showing, it would be one of...

    I used those rubber bands western people use for banding, then put the keeper over that. It works fairly well.

    I'm lucky if my day to day barn clothes somewhat match! I do buy nice breeches and spend money on outerwear, but shirts, sweatshirts, sweaters, all bets are off what I might be wearing. I do plan...

    I am sure it has been considered and ruled out, and I think unlikely root cause as a month off has been given, but consider saddle fit also. F8's comment about horses from the past got me thinking...

    I agree with everyone who is saying bone scan/ full work up, and F8 hit the nail on the head saying that more 'old school' horse people may not consider going the full technological diagnostic route....

    I think I've heard of boys using blazers rather than "real" riding coats. You may need to change out the buttons if they're brass or something, but may be more cost effective than horse clothes. I...

    I've used side reins, chambons, and neck stretchers, and all have their place when used properly. Whatever you choose, make sure it is adjusted correctly (not too tight!) and when your horse is...

    The boy in the link below looks right. The pants should be jodhs and the boy should also wear brown garter/ jodhpur straps and brown paddock boots. Your son doesn't need this brand of helmet, but his...

    Thank you for all of the comments! Riding out may be great, but we're in full on winter up here (although it was late in coming) and the footing isn't great right now. I think come spring time that...

    Good suggestions all, and good point F8. I suspect this horse has had the experiencing of going forward and getting caught in the mouth by an off balanced rider. I (and her trainer) have told the...

    Installing a "go" button in a green horse

    One of my barn mates has a green horse that doesn't have much in the way of natural, forward impulsion. The lack of forward may be due to a variety of things including being initally trainer western,...

    He does have brown boots; I think if you're GHM you can wear boots that are a little too short ;). Those suckers were polished to the nines when I saw him in person a couple of years ago.

    I haven't read all of the responses, but my horse was never a stopper, but started stopping a year ago, very out of character. Similar to your horse, I had done a tight turn to a biggish jump and...

    Mine made my legs pulse for the first 3-4 rides (cutting off circulation) and after stretching a bit became comfie. Mine did drop a little more than I expected, so if you are borderline on height go...
