    I had a friend with a lovely, well mannered tb, we pair raced together for several years, and overnight, he developed an issue in his box stall, perhaps brain tumor, that made it dangerous to even...

    I had a horse with little heel and lousy feet that stayed shod, and hunting, for 20 years. Number one is a good farrier who can do the best with what God gave him/her to work with. Number two, good...

    The only way to change that is for more to get out there and do it. Our Great Dane's ears were left uncropped by our choice. The breeder very much wanted us to show him to a championship as a...

    To add additional info- yes, if a female is wearing scarlet, either as staff or MFH, then tan tops on the boots are required. (Stated a slightly different way, with the exception of Old Dominion...

    Chloris Leachman. At least that was the consensus when colleagues and I were casting a 'reality show/movie' based on the particular program we're all working in, with soap opera overtones and an...

    Euthanasia is not cruel. Euthanasia is always sad no matter the circumstances. I typically have to put mine down due to infirmities of old age, but I would much rather put down one seemingly hale...

    Sad development. I won't second guess the mods but I can think of a few that I would vote off the island, I suppose they just don't get reported.

    It's a shame that someone so helpful on horse...

    PS to ReSomething, I expect your horse would not be a candidate but acupuncture successfully cured tail paralysis from injury for a horse of mine some years back.

    The tail does not affect the quality of the ride you get in a horse. And yet we obsess over it. The tail set is just one variation, personally I think the tail bag is almost as bad, preventing...

    It's completely appropriate to email, or better yet call. Each hunt seems to have its own rules in that regard.

    As HR noted, formal attire is always correct. Obscurely, ratcatcher is always...

    And the funny thing to me is, it was a maiden race- so it wasn't as though he had tasted victory a few times before, but gunning it at the wire the way he did sure made it seem like he had. A jockey...

    Well I think everyone agrees that one death is too many, but your information would be more meaningful if you furnished percentage of starters at those tracks, and included several years' worth of...

    I had a warmblood that came back to me after a year (left as a good hauler) who exhibited the same behavior. In his case, it was because during that year he was hauled in a much too small trailer,...

    I am confused, you first said you were using a 3/4 inch felt and just above you reference using a dressage pad. I can't think of a dressage pad I'd want to use under a western saddle, so I wonder if...

    Wow. I can think of elite riders, including Olympians, that I know don't always wear a helmet. And yes, they know what they are doing. Conversely I know plenty of people who wear helmets who are...

    I too have a Smith Worthington and am very pleased. The others in use are so old I can't remember the brands! As is always expected, the 'best' one from Horse Country met its demise thanks to a...

    Looks fine to me. My 'little old lady' horse is a 14h quarter horse mare, and I am 5'7", and it works just fine for me. And there are a couple of 6' cowboys who would happily take her off my hands...

    'Next to' the interstate is legal, 'on' the interstate is not. Although I have actually ridden on I-80 to carry the mail for the annual Pony Express re-ride, we get permission for this and have a...

    I guess I'm just not that judgmental. I ride with the helmetless all the time, they are in the majority in these parts, and would care for them as I would for someone wearing a helmet in the event...

    Oh, well, yes, I had one that I retired from foxhunting at 26. I hoped through his teens that by the time he was 21 or so he'd be a gentleman, but I was wrong. Not that he was evil, just didn't...

    Actually on a 'fresh' one I just use a rope halter instead of the usual flat leather halter. And I pony as often English as western. I advise ponying a bit in the ring a few times to get the lay of...
