  1. Monstrpony, you just have to find a hunter pace...

    Monstrpony, you just have to find a hunter pace that has a "seniors" or "leisure" division, that your boys can enjoy at a pace that works well for them. My 20-something often gets blue ribbons at...

    "I'm sorry but why is it the OPs fault the person riding with her was an ignorant asshat?"

    It's not her fault. It's just so common that sooner or later, ya gotta accept ownership whether it's your...

    "we are hauling the most precious being in the universe."

    Big fat "Like."


    My horse's personal magic mirror, however, tells her that _she_ is the most precious being in the universe, and while...

    Jeez, I'm getting old! I thought the guy was kind of scuzzy-looking. And, my reaction to him was, "You A-hole. Why are you out drinking beer when your dog is home alone waiting for you?"

    In the 20s and 30s already? Shit! Oh, oops, I mean, "Gosh!" We are coming up for either members' days in early October or the Fall Foliage Ride 2. I don't want it to be freezing yet. I was kind...

    Well, I'm old and cantankerous, but I would find frequent banal texting to be flattering the first day, but tedious and wishy-washy by the third day. I would be thinking, "Man up, you wimp, and pick...

    You maybe knew, in your heart of hearts, that Sandy might do this. Never make plans with her again that involve money, unless she pays up front, and then you would want to be very, very clear that...

    My senior horse recently had a similar injury. Sound at the walk, but lame at the trot. Blocked and diagnosed with an unspecified (at the time) suspensory injury. She was in a mid-sized standing...

    They are a terrible, manipulative, sneaky company. The other day, I was trying to drive past their store, minding my own business, and they had arranged a traffic jam _just past_ their store, so...

    Now, OP, the most important thing is to start getting those great photos of your girl with mist clinging to her whiskers, frost/snowflakes in her whiskers, etc. :-)

    My own horse prefers the...

    I also board in a New England, and hear you about the rocky woods. I boarded for a year or so at a barn that had only rocky woods trails, and they were not fun; the footing was awful, and it was the...

    I use the ring on the wall of the trailer, above the chest bar. I tie the haynet to a ring just under the window. For us, it's never been an issue.

    I tie (with a breakway tie and she wears a...

    Well, frankly, my time-management suggestion is to get rid of a boyfriend who doesn't understand that you might have passions other than him, and that a person might even to continue to develop more...
  14. I will play devil's advocate and disagree.......

    I will play devil's advocate and disagree.... with a few caveats.

    You will probably work just as hard at either place. So you can be working hard and earning x, or you can be working the same...
  15. "Silly did not even blink, just glared at me....

    "Silly did not even blink, just glared at me. Like "you've got to be kidding me".

    Oh, good. I feel better to hear that she had her Arab on, as well as the feather. My horse would have given me the...
  16. Silly's expression in the picture with the little...

    Silly's expression in the picture with the little girl on her back is worth a thousand words of praise. What a good girl. I don't think there are words to sum up an Arab mare; they are magic.

    A couple of ideas, though I don't drive so don't really know anything about it..... You could try calling Green Mountain Horse Association in Woodstock, VT and asking them for contacts. You could try...

    I always thought bare was best, when it came to traction on pavement..... Metal shoes or studs on pavement is a bad thing, I was taught. I would leave him bare unless you notice a huge problem.

    Wellllllll.... I thought it was a sweet, gorgeously filmed movie, but really kind of just a predictable commercial for attractive people talking about food.

    It was nowhere near as nuanced or...

    Well, my horse cost less than her off-the-rack saddle, and she is worth her weight in gold, so they are out there. I think you would need to stop looking in the Endurance world, though, and start...

    Many times. However, once was when we were out on a trail, just the two of us, and we had stopped so I could read the map. Mare put her head down to scratch her leg. I lost the reins, they flopped...

    I saw that video posted by Snicklefritz and my immediate response was, "Asshole. He does not feel my pain. That is _so_ not my reality." :-)

    But, I would agree 100% that many horses will have...
