    Jointed irons made things with my knees worse for me. I LOVE my Composite Wide Tracks. I have done everything from dressage to foxhunting in them.

    Do it. Get him on a Friday night and do a trial run over a preferably long weekend. Even just tether him outside or leave him in a pen outside when you're not home (obviously with shade/shelter and...

    I had a 15 minute drive to the hospital while in labor and it was MISERABLE.

    I love my sidepull bridle from Running Bear. I generally ride without a bit on the trail, but I use a bit when I'm doing dressage/arena work. It's constructed like a halter with a padded noseband...

    Let's talk fencing!

    I'm buying a property that already has about half the fencing up that I ultimately want. It previously had cattle, so the posts are solid wood with smooth wire, 4 or 5 strands of it. It's set up so...

    My husband has the 6 plus. I'll get the 6 when I get around to upgrading (have the 5 currently). The plus is too big to operate comfortably though they do have some built in things that make it a...

    I love my Premier bridles from Schneiders. They're $40 or so and are great.

    I am also quite pleased with my HDR flat hunt bridle. I've gotten many compliments on it from people who *can* afford...

    My Arab would absolutely consider following someone out of the people door... He'd shrug and be all "You lead, I follow!"

    Probably depends on the brand. I groom dogs for a living and really the Oster, Andis and Wahl (and whatever other 'name brand' blades are worth the additional cost. They generally are made from...

    When I had my horses at home (3 at the time), I had it set up so I didn't have to handle them at all. Open barn doors, they'd come into their stalls, while they were coming in, I'd check the trough...

    There's a 21 day sugar detox diet. (Nothing you need to buy, just google it.) Its pretty rough if you follow it strictly for the first few days, but I felt a lot better after the first week.

    I would just get a huge load of sand and dump it in a mound. Every horse I've ever met, enjoys this. They usually make a bed of sorts out of it and enjoy rolling, sleeping and playing in it.

    Mine were VERY similar to this, but we had sliding doors. They work very well. When I build my new barn, I will be doing something similar again.

    If my daughter decides she wants to differ from what the rest of the family eats, that's fine, but I would expect she eats a healthy, balanced diet. None of the cheating either (I can understand...

    I usually listen to my Arab to an extent. If he balks, I'll urge him to go anyway. If he is really truly insistent about not going, there's usually a reason.
