    Talk to your plumber. I have a drain at one side of the wash bay, which then through a very short pipe into a big "bucket" just a foot away outside of the wall of the wash bay, sunk into the ground....

    I think this is really the toughest question. We can all talk about what techniques to utilize, but no technique will work unless we as riders remain calm and collected.

    For me, it starts with...

    On wet grass, NO. Wet grass is slippery. Not worth the risk. Sand arena, yes.

    I've dealt with a fair amount of anxious horses. Some do better with just standing, while others with the same method will backfire on you. It really depends on the horse.

  5. Yeah, so? Putting a horse in full training...

    Yeah, so? Putting a horse in full training instead of riding themselves is part of showing "well". It is just going to a different route.

    What I'm saying it, OP has an expectation, because she...

    It could be that they don't understand what it takes to show "well." If they are inexperienced, they might imagine that riding once a week is more than enough, and showing no more than a "fun" thing...

    I think the only thing you could have done better is not try to hold on. A human will never win against a horse's strength. That is why I prefer a long lead rope, and that's why I myself will never...

    Run your bare hand throughout the interior of the trailer. You will be surprised by how many sharp edges some trailers have. Avoid those.

    SnicklefritzG, your choice of word, livid, as well as the content in your OP indicates "Livid." It is not people choose to read the word, and not the content. But i guess it is really moot point.

    A stranger? Yeah, I'd be annoyed, and wonder what the heck is going on. But Livid? You must be leading a charmed life, to have such an steaming reaction for something so trivial.

    Are you saying your "friend" was not there to help you to hook up?????!!!!:eek: What? The least she should do is to get the trailer back to you.

    If he could afford an attorney, he wouldn't been so hung up on a used truck sale. We are not talking about a Ferrari here. I would just tell him to "go ahead" and don't worry about it.

    It is reasonable that the boarding barn requires boarders to be in the program to help offset the boarding cost. Most of the time, boarding itself earns no money for the BO.

    I myself will not...

    Not to mention that her criticism is based on the down-to-earth, non-posh chain fastener, the dirt on the turnout sheets, and that the horses are clothed in sheets, and not blankets. Even if she did...

    Some of my horses will scream ABUSE if I dare put sheets, let along blankets on them.

    We got our wifi via local phone company (DSL) for about $60/month. It is not great, but far better, and cheaper than satellite. There is no data limit.

    It's probably easier if you move, but assuming that you HAVE TO stay, you can try this. Note, you will need to take up more work than just a plain boarder would. But it's either that, or paying...

    I suggest you to get a more mature horse with plenty of saddle time under his hooves already. Young horses (anything under 8) are difficult to ride, and I'm saying this from someone who has ridden...

    If money were no objection, and if I were to redo my barn, I would have recessed concrete stall floor with gigantic rubber mats on top. The concrete should be recessed so once rubber mat is applied...

    Actually it is easier to move the gigantic mats than the 4x6 mats. The reason is with the gigantic mat you can foll into half and you just grab the fold and drag it. 4x6 mats are difficult to move...

    Mats for conveyor belts are not suitable for horse stalls. They are too thin, and too slippery. You need to get those designed for horses.

    Years ago, I ordered my gigantic rubber mats from LinearRubber. They can make one mat for 12x12 I believe. You just need to tell them the dimension you need. You will need some sort of machinery to...

    You rise and fall on the inside hind to free up his inside hind, because that is the main driving force. In the future, you will start to ask his inside hind to step more toward his mid line.

    You get what you pay for. If you want all safety features coming out of factory, you pay for it. That is why higher end trailers are higher end. For example, Elite or 4Star runs all their nuts and...
