    Also keep in mind that the KHP is a big atmosphere for a greenie. Haven't ridden the starter at Champagne Run, and it's been a while since I've competed at that event at any level, but it's pretty...

    But it's not required, not anymore. I've seen plenty of open corners in the past couple of years - the double corners on this course were open.

    While I agree that it's not the best picture (and the first thing I noticed, like lep, was the horse's form) the fact remains that we all make mistakes. Should people (and horses) have to pay for...

    I had a lot of trouble when I was riding in a saddle with a wider twist. Not sure what type of saddle you are looking for or what might fit your horse, so hard to make specific suggestions.

    I have an Armpocket that I put mine in when I don't have pockets. The strap is long enough I can put it around the top of my calf in addition to my upper arm. www.armpocket.com

    My opinion is that joint supplements are intended to be chondroprotective and therefore most effective when given as prevention. If you wait until the horse is showing signs of joint problems, you...

    I start elderberry as soon as I start to feel like something might be coming on - as long as I remember to do that, it usually keeps me from really getting sick.

    The barn I boarded at in college was mainly a lesson barn, small kids to teenagers. One of the girls that rode there (she was probably 10-12 years old at the time) had tacked up her pony but either...

    Depends on what fits you, but I'm a big fan of the Horze Grand Prix and they're around $100. I'm curvy, so if you have a different body type you may not like them as much. I also fit well in TS...
