    I know you are talking about CDLs, but there is also the USDOT # question.

    At least in MD, according to the Equiery article,

    If you did it yourself, renting the equipment, around here, you'd be close to $1000 in supplies and equipment rental, add in the aggravation factor, aka time and manual labor, or breaking through the...

    At some point in life, everyone comes across the horse that is too much for them, at that point in time.

    Even the professionals usually have someone else to call in when a horse is not working...

    Not that many.

    Less than 10 as a child.

    Maybe 30ish as an adult, and if you take out the one or two lessons or trail rides on other people's horses, that drops down to 15 or so.

    My ride...

    For context, I am not a pro, just an amateur who rides on average, 9-10 rides a week. For lessons, shows and clinics I use nicer boots.

    I blow through boots pretty fast. They aways start...

    I didn't vote, because the options make it sound like the barn vet is mandatory.

    I have a 7 stall barn, but only keep 6 horses. 2-3 are usually boarders. I do have my vet practice and my...

    For lessons that are 10 minutes down the road, the lessons are about 45 minutes each, if I take two horses, there is a lesson in between my two, so it is about 3 hours. When the lesson is an hour...

    Stalls that have gaps in the mats are a royal PITA to clean IMO. So a 10x12 stall will take 5 mats, and yes a 12x12 is 6. Stone dust isn't cheap, but I will say if you have some extra stalls, the...

    I recently got a pair of Konigs. I did the same with them as I have done with my Dehners. Condition the inside with Vogel's boot cream (I will cry when my last bit is gone, they don't seem to make...

    Good for you, taking one on from the auction. I will say that I don't really think he is too thin, perhaps needs some more topline muscles, but given that I'm always struggling with chubby horses, I...
  18. USEF iPad Rule Book App...charges to use the rule book

    I was looking at the USEF Rule book online, you know, the one that is free? Well, they have this little "download the free iPad app" button, and I figure, why not?

    Oh, because only the Bylaws of...

    Ok, I mis-read that part.

    I agree, and as Janet (an actual licensed TD) has clarified, quite clearly, I have nothing to add.

    I am pretty sure I did not say anything about fair or not fair in my post about the rules being convoluted. I did not approve of my friend's feeling that the rules did not apply to her.

    I have a friend who shows as an amateur and always has, and would give lessons to boarders. She rationalized it because she was not very good(her description, not mine), and in our area, you are...

    I love your videos. I enjoy the creativity and appreciate the effort you put into producing them.

    Off to go watch this one and do a hashtag search for pictures.

    The person who says to take your helmet when you try on sunglasses is right! And if you use a different helmet for showing, test that one out too!

    Kate's wanting Paddy around (what a gut-wrenching loss that was) has me post that I was thinking that ponying could work? Is Toby an OTTB? Does he pony? Of course, being ponied feels so odd.
