    I manage to keep one horse in 6 days / week of work, the 2nd in light work (3-4 days). My 2nd horse is near retirement, so the rides are pretty much focused on "moseying" around to keep her...

    How sad--what a loss! I only met Seema a few times, but she gave so much back to the sport! I remember her being the TD for events and very active in trying to find creative ways to get more people...

    ^ THIS is the sort of stuff that has me envisioning us sitting at customs, for hours, with 2 very young horses in the trailer! Neither of which is an experienced traveler. And that would be after...

    A lot of people stay in Peterborough and I believe you can take a train to Stamford from there. And there are some B&B's and other options in Stamford--but they probably are pretty booked up for...

  6. Getting newly purchased horses across the border (Canada to US)

    I did something completely stupid and bought another horse! I'm blaming the (currently) strong US dollar for my lack of restraint! ;) Pending a good PPE of course. But the horses (um, my friend...

    Yes! If you can swing it--it's worth it to get the members tickets. That gives you closer parking (if you are renting a car) and entry into the members area (where there are lovely food choices,...

    It might be good for this horse to be ridden more (as long as the riders are fairly good and are not undoing any training). It's good for the drafty types to be more fit otherwise they can become...

    I know this isn't your question--but I just have to pipe in on this. I think it's sad that the owners are putting you in a corner by saying, "if you don't take this horse, we will sell him". How...

    An SI injection will also not help if your horse has a tear or injury to the ligaments around the SI joint. Injections help with bony involvement---they don't heal ligament fibers. So you really...

    Oh no--that stinks. Poor guy. Hope everything heals up and is a non-issue long term. My younger horse showed up bloody at the gate the day before her 2nd event_ever. She and another horse had...

    I have also done what Scubed (and others) have mentioned. Play around with riffs on the barn name, or the pedigree and see if you can find something that you like. Although my last horse's pedigree...

    On the other hand---we ended up buying a horse last year that was advertised at 18 hands. When we went to see him, he was so flippin' massive that we were like, "Ok--he is SO tall, he's ridiculous!"...
