    Perhaps Very Expensive Horses understand that they are Very Expensive and therefore must not mess up their beauty regime? Wouldn't know as I don't play in that sandbox. My Econo-Nag walks around...

    I'm so with the OP here. I worked at busy lesson barns for over 10 years and sometimes it was like a revolving door of help. I can count on one hand the number of people I enjoyed working with and...

    Always thought I'd end up with a huge (as in 17.2+) grey drafty thing or heavy WB. The big clunky kind that look like they should be plowing a field. Instead I've had 2 TBs, one that was maybe 16h...

    Here's what my herd gets. All are one a large pasture (80+/- acres) in central SD, and they all get fed 2x/day.

    30 y.o. QH who's a little on the skinny side, gives the occasional pony ride to my...

    What a lovely eye he has! I think you've got a real gem there. On a related note, if he goes missing he is not on a ranch in central South Dakota with me. Nope, nope, nope.

    *runs to hide him...

    I think the biggest difference between these two pictures is that the Animo breeches are horribly unflattering with that weird button fly. The British team members are wearing breeches with clean...

    I never sleep in a bra. If I could get away with never ever wearing one, I would. Unfortunately I'm a 38E so I'm stuck with the damn things unless I want to give myself a black eye. I so wish I...

    My TB and I primarily do dressage and jumpers. However, I work on my family's cattle ranch and it turns out he's a pretty good cowhorse. Here we are practicing our sorting skills on some bulls. ...

    I've had 2, the heavy Stormcheeta with the attached neck cover and the cheapest rainsheet they offer (totally blanking on the model name). I like them a lot. The sheet I used for a season and then...

    Well, it's not an eventing photo but I captured this special moment last weekend.

    Fat cowpony wants to know why fat TB is walking around with a bucket in his mouth. Also wants to see if they can...

    I would start with a bib clip (chest and throat, I also used to extend it between the front legs to just past the girth area). This cuts down on the sweat quite a bit and if you need to clip more,...

    I just use regular detergent with Oxiclean or something similar, and then spray with waterproofing spray once they're dry. I do run them through an extra rinse cycle to get all the detergent out. ...

    I was just thinking about this the last time I did hillwork with the cowpony I ride. As quick as he is, he doesn't have a very good gallop. He will flatten out, kind of, and doesn't pull or get too...

    Check in time!

    So just when I got into a good jumping groove with the TB, it started raining. My jump area hasn't been useable for over a week and it's raining again right now. :no: It hasn't...

    How I acquired my first horse:

    Vet was at the barn I used to manage on a Thursday. He did a lot of work at the track and he mentions to my boss that he knew a nice horse that needed a home. My...

    Let me go on the record as saying that if your big guy ever wants a home as an unconventional cattle horse he can come live with me and my TB in South Dakota. People here think I'm crazy for working...

    I prefer minimal to no knee blocks......but I'm also 6' tall and am used to my knee hanging over the flap in lots of saddles. Plus the highest I jump is about 3' and my horse is pretty easy to stay...

    Bit gets wiped off after every ride, and scrubbed when I do a take-apart clean of my bridles about once a month. I let the bits sit in a pan of hot water while I clean the bridles and they come out...

    I bought a Uvex on Helmet Awareness Day and I can feel the wind on my forehead. Which is WEIRD to get used to but fantastic.

    I think your position is nice for that small of a fence. I find it difficult to properly fold over anything lower than about 2'6. What helps me is thinking about squatting over the horse. I like...

    Mine goes in a Stubben Siegfried CS Extra, size 31 which translates to a MW. He has a fairly high, long wither and substantial shoulder. They can be found used for a very reasonable price.

    OMG YES! I've started trimming my own horse's feet because I live in one of those "black holes" where good farriers don't seem to exist. Honestly, if I were rich I would fly my old farrier in from...
