    I went to Hollins and DH went to VMI, so pretty familiar with the commute you are considering. :lol: It is not a bad drive in good weather (big rigs never bothered me) but boy, it can be an...

    my DH is in the military - thanks to the remoteness of our current duty station, I drive 82 miles (one way) to get to the barn. I usually do that about 3 - 4 times per week. My horse is half-leased...

    Haha... my horse also does an amazing "Oh I'm SO VERY tired, I will definitely behave myself later on today..." act. He even sighs dramatically when he spies the lunge line.

    Me too!

    And it might be nice to remember that it is HARD to be the fish out of water in a new place, far from 'home.' Maybe the new mom is just trying to fit in and relate, and OP isn't giving her...

    The question that immediately came to mind for me was - well, what are your goals for the horse? If you want to get out there and show next weekend and have a good experience (knowing that it may be...

    There is a pretty active eventing scene in...
