    I have one of each, English and Western, and have been pleased with both. I haven't had the slippage problem Pocket Pony had with suede on sheepskin. I use the thin felt pad between the pad and the...

    The cell phone is a wonderful invention. I check on mine daily when out of town, even though they are at a full board facility. Texting is really simple.

    And speaking as a supervisor, in...

    There are likewise discounts for AQHA members but in the end, the particular dealer made me a better deal than would have been had using the discount. Though I can still use that for more implements...

    I can only report that I was told, third hand, by a vet (and so truly hearsay) that the hired caretaker simply went back to Mexico without notice. The particular field has been used by Mr. Haws for...
  5. I very much enjoyed my solid year (and a few...

    I very much enjoyed my solid year (and a few summers after that) of riding in France 40+ years ago. Yes, the setups are different from the US, but that isn't a case of good or bad, just what is. ...

    Here is local coverage: http://fox13now.com/2014/09/25/charges-filed-against-owner-of-10-horses-found-dead-in-magna/

    There were early reports that the individual in charge of checking these horses...

    Agreed and so far so good.

    I have had good success just letting them fly off and patiently reloading. In one case it was a horse who had loaded well but spent a year being hauled in a too-small trailer. Depending on the horse,...

    I found this horse's story interesting (on the link Simkie provided):

    Frontier was unique that he bucked with bell boots on his front feet. Early in his career (1991), Frontier acted like he...

    If you are interested in the breeding of rough stock, here is a little reading material:

    These folks do reference successful 'saddle horses...

    You are correct, but so far my mower is putting up with my abuse quite admirably. I do cut high on the tumbleweeds and sagebrush and take the precaution of going slow and not 'overfacing' the...

    When I hunted regularly, whipping in, really, once I got them fit during summer roading and staff hunting, I pretty much only rode when hunting. Mine were turned out 24/7 with shelter (and fully...

    I will add one thought that just now occurs to me. The ability to attach or remove the attachments (including FEL) solo was a huge plus for me. 'The guys' in the family are, well, really sweet and...

    By the way, I think I share the frustrations of others about the misinformation associated with the bucking strap (you still see web sites claiming how cruel it is, for example). It's a cue to buck,...

    It's possible but, the ad notes that these are 'aged' bucking stock, so it's not as though they are washouts. On the other hand, there were and are plenty of very talented broncs who, if saddle...

    I've had a 1025R for a little over a year, and been very pleased with it. Snow is not an issue (southern Utah) but whacking 6 foot tall tumbleweeds is. It does shock and awe on such stuff with the...

    Oh, it can be a challenge even for those not transitioning. Just plain old boring consistency, mostly...correct, drop reins, correct, drop reins, and so on. Judicious circling can also be helpful,...

    More than likely, they know nothing, which is why they are buying. I'm astonished at 'where' developers will build, and people just buy thinking well, if they are building there, it must be okay. ...

    He is a young 'unentered' hound so, not yet hunted. And of course behind schedule since he would have been walking out, roading, etc, learning things with the pack over the summer. But he'll have a...

    I don't recall a James River Hunt Club, so I think you are thinking of the stable referenced by SLW.

    Anything other than white is 'colored.' And no tie and shirt don't need to be the same color. Here are some of Liz Callar's photos from a year ago, cubhunting at Middleburg, which might give you a...

    I believe the golfer Gary Player breeds quarter horses, in addition to tb's. And has for some decades.
