    Were you at Dartmouth? Yes, it's a beautiful area, and I don't know a lot about the h/j scene besides the school barn. I know the dressage trainers I like most in the area tend to go south for the...

    They were with him at least 15 minutes, so I assume they checked ID, and given the empty foreclosure it wouldn't be surprising if he were trying to serve there. However, I'm with you on still not...

    I'm not sure I even trust my mom with pepper spray, but that's one to think about and definitely consider.


    I was VERY scared and my heart was racing for sure. It is comforting to have the...

    Last night as I parked the trailer to unload my horse in the dark after a lesson up at my trainer's, someone drove past our place into the desert, drove around there some, turned around and parked...

    See, to me, the YH championship as a highlight of the quality breeding makes it MORE interesting to go, even if I were only going as a spectator. I would go to watch that - make them the mid-day...

    For my former company, we were not allowed to contribute more than 20% per paycheck, so that's the question to look at for you. I think knowing if there's a max per paycheck should answer your...

    Honestly, in the end motivation has to come from you or it won't work.

    I haven't heard of a mare being like that then showing no heat symptoms and it being related to her cycle, but it's totally possible that it is. My mare gets flighty and overreactive and spooky...

    I rode my palomino in burgundy and hunter green. Loved both on him!

    I tend to prefer more intense colors anyway, so preferred them. I do love blue with a palomino, and one of my friends competed...

    ITA.

    I hadn't thought of YH and Nationals together, but think it's really an excellent idea. Growing up I tended to think of Tulsa as the home of national championships since that's where they...

    Why on earth would his hooves blister from hoof boots?

    I suggest getting some hoof boots which *fit*. Is there anything wrong with his hooves which needs rehabbing?

    Again, that's exactly how I felt until I had a heart horse. I loved all my past horses, but there's an inexplicable connection with my TB. All three of my horses prefer me to any other human, and I...

    Brilliantly written! Thanks for pulling it out of a thread that got nasty and contentious (I assume, I didn't keep reading the thread) because it is something which would be a shame to lose.

    Yeah, growing up I probably averaged 2-3 shows/month in 4-H and stock-type shows. The rarity of dressage shows is weird to me... same location!

    The shows almost all count as 2 shows with one per day. Which makes it far more expensive.

    Then again, most of the time regionals is so far away that most of us don't bother. Next year it's in...

    I stand by my original thought that while no, I wouldn't buy the horse simply because she's not what *I* would be buying, I encourage you to do so. :) She's a lovely horse, the kind who...

    I think there are 3 within 15 minutes of my place, and 3 or 4 more within just about 2 1/2 hours as far as shows which are recognized for state championship qualification. There's another series of...

    I think most complaints about political correctness are just people who want to be a-holes and thoughtless about the feelings of others, honestly.
