    Thanks Dewey, I think that will be the most reasonable solution. Don't worry, customs are definitely NOT on the table as an option!

    Toaster, I had that same thought, but he has wide feet, even the...

    This is a very timely thread for me. I have a 10 year old son who is riding a large pony and a small horse. He is very tall for his age and when on a horse looks older than he is. He is outgrowing...

    Good ponies are worth their weight in gold. If someone is giving one of these creatures away, like it or not they are entitled to do it on their terms and if you are taking one of these ponies you...

    When I had my twin boys a few years ago there were quite a few people who thought I would leave horses and riding in the past. It certainly hasn't worked out that way. I had one more son 18 months...

    There's nothing wrong with tamping the dirt back in holes except that it is a heck of a lot of work so I was guessing that pouring concrete seems easier to our OP? But wood fenceposts (even the...

    I would definitely contract a professional to drive the posts. Driving the posts does stress the top end of the post, but after you nail the boards on you will be sawing the top off anyway to make it...

    A lot of parents these days are struggling to work f/t jobs, clean the house and get to the grocery store, AND feeling guilty about it so also trying to be "perfect" parents who take their little...

    I don't think there is a magic age. It depends on the health, vigor and fertility of the mare. If a mare is having trouble getting in foal, for most mares it isn't worth the risk/expense to continue....

    I think two horses in one hour isn't that doable on a regular basis. I agree, horses don't always need to be ridden all that long, but to get two horses done in an hour I need to have the horses...

    Oh, I see, and I agree, for a first pony for a tiny kid it is nice to go small. It's so important for the kids to be able to handle/lead/groom/pick feet of their own pony. Kids really love it when...

    There's really no such thing as a "perfect pony." :)
    Also, I have had most of my luck using ponies for hunting that have had a lot of trail experience--rather than hunting experience--beforehand....

    Oh, yes, my post above was definitely written in a sarcasm font. Right now we are repairing some wintertime damage to what I call "invisibles." I am in the process of repairing something you can't...

    On the plus side, nothing like a frozen water hydrant + horses that need water or a midwinter tractor breakdown to distract you from trivial problems and minor expenses that are occurring in your...

    I had a similar situation. One of the buttons that the liner attaches to popped out after two years. I contacted Smartpak (where I purchased the helmet), then in turn contacted Samshield, who told me...

    SportArab, I'm not trying to be argumentative, but there are few drugs that are exactly the same as something that occurs naturally in the human body--I don't think that is a reasonable expectation....

    I think that an initial email can be pretty basic, a quick sentence about you and your horse and what you are looking for, and then maybe a couple of questions about anything in particular that is...

    Beam Me Up, I've heard similar things. But really, if you ride regularly I think the 5 year rule isn't a bad idea. After a helmet has survived five years of sweat, hairspray, sunscreen and possibly...

    When I read this article in its initial version (it appears to since have been edited) it contained a number of inaccuracies. I don't have a scientific answer for you, but the fact that the medical...

    It's a pretty jacket, but I'm going to agree with Lord Helpus, it looks more like a dressage jacket. Still, I love the stitching detail and think it is a nice jacket.

    I have worn a protective vest for years. I started out with a Charles Owen which at the time met the highest safety standards but turned out to be a bit stiff and uncomfortable. For some reason it...

    Good advice here. The only thing I would add is that with a big strided horse, use the ends of the ring to organize and plan your next "pass" in front of the judge. Possibly discreetly use the corner...
