    I think what I miss is being "in a program". Even though I didn't show often, I was boarding at a barn that had three excellent trainers who taught challenging and engaging lessons that I really...

    The "fun-to-money-spent" ratio

    The weather is warming up and my horse was cleared for more work than just hacking around the farm so I started getting the idea of showing again in my head. Added up what it would cost to go to a...

    I agree with the suggestion to ride with Beverly at Switch Willo. She is a great instructor, even when the ring is full she manages to give everyone individualized attention. She sets up exercises...

    Yes, this is what I do, and if I can, stick them in front of a fan; they end up cooled off and barely damp, not soaking wet. Everyday in the summer, I find my horse covered in dried and wet sweat...

    During the summer it's common practice for me to spray them off BEFORE riding. Never have had a rubbing problem. As long as they're not muddy, go for it. Or get a no-fill turnout sheet.

    The book you mentioned and "Equinomics" are the textbooks for the equine marketing class I'm taking.

    This place is the first I thought of when you said Lake Travis, but I don't have any personal experience with the staff. It has a covered ring, trails, and very limited turnout (calling it "pasture...

    Hahaha same!

    I kind of like the exterior. The blue stairs are pretty bad, but repainting the walls and removing wallpaper is an easy enough fix.

    I feel like the worst horse owner ever.

    I could and started to write a novel on how all my past mistakes in horsemanship have led to why my horse will probably be retired at the "ripe old age" of...

    I feel guilty that I don't want to deal with my horse, hence the crying.
    It depends on the day whether or not being at the barn is a positive or negative experience. My horse lost a shoe Friday...
