    To walk around the ring twice or so, a little trot and then let him stop and poop. Then he gets lovely and free moving.

    Mom brain was right. But then this mom would have told the kid to suck it before she ever made it into the arena and yanked her off the horse if she didn't. Sorry that it took away from you enjoying...

    My trainer is 19 (under the supervision of her mother, my original trainer). I am over 60. She seems to enjoy my slightly relaxed, sarcastic approach compared to the dead seriousness of her little...

    I'm in NC south of Charlotte and I'm ready to go south. I had planned to be in Pensacola this week, but that plan was changed to end of March. Regretting that change. It's not much warmer, but...

    Another vote for a Dover Northwind. My grandhorse finally did his in last winter (in Wisconsin, of course :( ), but I bought it for him in 2004 or so. They replaced it once with no problems, it...
