    That seems "discreet" enough for my taste, though I assume you'd probably be getting navy or black rather than the bright blue pictured? I have a charcoal coat and it has piping on collar and...

    Okay. How's this? 70 years old (in July). Riding HOT 16.2hh Araloosa. 12 year old truck, 22 year old trailer (probably will have to shell out for new/less used trailer next year). Boarding at...

    Bigger pony obviously a POA. Well, you know, with Appies, it's either amazingly tolerant or, in the alternative, "I'm outta here." Nice that it was the tolerant version! Two ponies worth their...

    My last four horses - 1977 to the present - have all been Appys, and I've called them all, affectionately, "fuzzybutt." The current one is an Araloosa, so I also call him "pretty boy" aka...

    I remember seeing, probably 30 years or more ago, a pic of Mike Plumb and his then-wife Donnan, doing a pas de deux, with both riding sidesaddle. They each were in standard breeches and boots, but...

    Horse looked a little surprised when asked to move over by cleats instead of a spur! LOL

    Well...Rita Hayworth, redhead - How about "Gilda" one of Hayworth's famous roles? (or would everyone think Gilda Radner - maybe the Hayworth movie is too long ago for most under 50 year old)

    Well, here are some of Markey-Mark from Fall 2014. Since it's the photographer's webpage, I have to let you see the bad ones (on my part), as well as the good, but at least you can see what a pretty...

    I had an event horse that hated dressage (hated doing anything in a ring except jumping). He would have hauled butt in a locking bit that became, essentially, a mullen mouth. For dressage I rode...

    100% agree. My 3 year old went straight to a colt-starter I had checked out with several other people. A friend of mine took hers to a dressage trainer. While my horse turned out to be on the hot...

    Oh, this is so exactly what happened to an old acquaintance of mine. He had quite a nice western-type Appy, and he was riding down the road and a car passed him, stopped, backed up, driver rolled...

    Wanted to, but not if I have to chance riding in front of M. I pass. Bad experiences. I'll probably do a schooling show (Petaluma) then two shows in May to make up for nothing in April. I did do...

    I didn't realize that was B's breeding. Erik was a Prince Plaudit grandson, and his TB line went to Man O' War through Hard Tack, Seabiscuit's sire.

    Eh, if it's for financial reasons, it sounds petty to me. Why engender fear when "We can't afford it" is a sufficient answer?

    My parents had NO trouble telling me flat out: "We know you love...

    True - to a degree - but a guitar/sax/bass doesn't require food, doesn't maim itself given half a chance, doesn't NEED to be exercised multiple times a week, etc. We often say that many people don't...

    My '88 3/4 ton Chevy Cheyenne died in Feb. 2014. 256,000+ miles on the original tranny. I loved that truck! I started a search and in less than a week I found a '03 Silverado with only 53,000...

    Well, as Appsolute can verify, you want Appy sport horses - and not downhill - try this bloodline:

    It is odd how some people have no - well, empathy. I've seen horses that I thought, "Urk, questionable....(take your pick...soundness, temperament, looks...)," but their owners loved them, so I...

    When I was eventing, I used to take lessons with the H-J trainer next door. I'd ride over with my green saddle pad, green Sports Medicine boots, helmet cover, etc. (And on an Appy, for that matter),...

    It is a conundrum. My TB/App was a flat, hunter mover, a bit straight in the shoulder. He made all his points on obedience and smooth transitions (and he was easy to sit).

    When I went shopping...

    Yes, it's my understanding that the Nez Perce were the only Native Americans (pre-20th Century) to geld the inferior horses. Lewis & Clark compared the Nez Perce horses to "Virginia blood horses"...

    I haven't got my bronze yet, but hoping by end of this year, beginning of next year......
