    Not in the price point mentioned, but after yesterday (and other adventures in driving over the years) I'm not sure I'll ever drive anything other than a Honda CRV (when not hauling) again. My...

    It hardly punishes the horse's mouth, at least if adjusted and used correctly and if used on a horse that understands seeking a steady contact and pushing into the bridle. The contact is quite soft...

    If you've only missed a month, and the horse was quite fit, and has been turned out, you don't have to be super conservative In bringing him back. They do not lose fitness that fast (once you start...

    I have two Wellfleets (a dressage and a hunter bridle) and they are both lovely. I am very happy with them. I think actually I like them better than my Five Star bridle, which, while lovely quality,...

    I was thinking the same thing about a busier environment. I think my horse would go bonkers if he was only one of two horses on a quiet property. He likes to watch things and stick his nose in...

    I am kind of a lousy Googler, though I am getting better (or Google is getting smarter and understanding my random musings more efficiently). But Google Maps and I are BFFs. Yes, I am very map...

    Good, proper, quality long and low work (pushing from behind and stretching across the back) is a HUGE help and so, so good for them. It isn't exactly exciting, but it will go a long way to help. I...

    I have a small list of grievances with my adorable little cottage (about 800sqft). But probably the thing I would fix first would be a kitchen re-do. I have seriously limited counter and cabinet...

    I think it depends a lot on how much you use it for and what kind of hauling and showing you are doing. If you haul out several days a week for lessons or to an indoor or some sort of regular...

    Agreed on probably not hiring you if an online course is all you took. I'm even leery of some of the hands on courses unless the person has a lot of equine experience beyond massage (example: two...

    No idea how true that is, though I do feel like I may have seen some article about it ages ago. And, no, not like muscles are frozen, but they are cold. We don't ever put a horse immediately to work...

    Timely. I've been struggling with this a lot this winter. Most of the winter has been a wash because there hasn't been adequate footing to safely ride a goofy horse. About 10 days ago, our indoor was...

    Also, if it is a rider who is older/may be retired from competition, keep in mind that USEA records only show the last 5(?) years. You have to sign into the dashboard to go further back.

    Yes, I do realize that Fernhill horses are chosen, not bred. I was only stating that all the Fernhill horses i know came from Ireland...some of those horses came with a "Fernhill _______" name and...

    Fibergized is amazing. It's my prefered feed. However, I'll feed TC Senior if I can't feed Fibergized.

    Generally, no. Not as a rule. But there are times, places, and situations where I will turnout in preferably all leather halters.

    Examples:
    - a new field arrangement. I often will leave halters...

    Hmm....I don't think I've ever used the term fifth gear. I do talk about them "finding" their next gear or top gear, which to me means that effortless, ground covering stride that requires nothing of...

    I have had two free leases in my life. One was my first horse, who was eventually given to me by the owner....he's out in my backyard right now, 18 years later. :)

    Honesty, men have gotten lazy or scared or SOMETHING. The love of the chase seems nonexistent anymore. I've seen it time and time again. Not just with me, but with friends, too. Very few guys seem...

    Berney Bros, either used or new directly from them, may be a good option. Wool flocked and a couple of their models are quite forward (the Dublin Jumper comes to mind). They have pretty curvy trees,...

    I'm a big anti-blanket advocate for otherwise furry, healthy and hardy horses, but some do just run colder than others, despite outside appearances. My younger horse grows a great coat if left to his...

    Some horses might be. But I think most would probably do it just fine. I have known a couple lower level jumpers (like AA/Ch level jumpers) that got a little too careful or worries at prelim but it...
