    When this happened to us, it was because the water line started dipping below where the well pump sat, and the pump was sucking half air half water, and starting to fail as it was also at end of life...

    Priefert fencing - any reviews?

    A gorgeous installation just went in down the road from me and I covet it. I've been wanting to upgrade a few areas and am wondering if anyone has any experience with them? Costs?

    I would recommend that you try Triple Creek Ranch, I think they would be a great fit for you. They have a nice little XC course and some school horses, and have a program for adult re-riders just...

    My hunt is an exception -- we pay for a lease on government land. We have an exclusive lease on around 160 acres (where the kennels and staff horses reside) and a "use" lease on the remaining...

    If it mostly happens on the aids, and he is fitter than usual right now, I'd look at his back. I could definitely see a saddle pinch or a developing kissing spine issue at work making him randomly...

    This is a tough time of year to sell. Gotta pull out all the stops.

    I just bought a horse yesterday for my daughter, and you can bet that it is going to be just about all she gets for Christmas...

    If he was level headed in the hunt field, he could be $5-8k here, depending on how he moves. That's a popular cross for foxhunters.

    I sold a horse on payment plan successfully. This was a local sale, in fact the horse didn't even change barns. In Colorado we require brand inspections to complete ownership, so he was the buyer's...

    I've been looking into this myself, and Stablemaster here in Parker does a very nice welded pipe fence that I am considering. I haven't gotten as far as pricing, but I sure do like the look and...

    Been there.

    If you can afford it, do it. She sounds like a lovely partner that will bring you back gently after having your baby, and that is priceless. Even if you only see her 10 minutes a...

    I have been the horse owner in this case.

    In my case, the lessee had also stopped feeding my horse because she was spending all her money on meth instead of grain. The BO gave her a few months...

    Have you looked into whether there is an IEA chapter in your area? I'm not personally involved myself, but I keep hearing about it -- it looks like a great opportunity to ride lots of different...

    I'm south of Denver, but if you want to come down this way, I have an oldster who adores being fussed over. :)

    Good heavens.
    This is a pony ride. Dad is holding onto kid the whole time, presumably with a death grip. Put a bike helmet on if you feel like kiddo must have something on, but really, I wouldn't...

    I'll disagree with this a little bit -- oftentimes a poor canter in the roundpen is just a balance issue. I have had young OTTBs like this -- cannot hold a canter lead in the roundpen, swapping...

    Encourage your current students to bring their friends! Offer a free lesson to anyone who refers a new student (and that new student signs up for a lesson package). Or whatever makes sense to you. ...

    Just takes time. Stay off her back altogether for a while, half seat is perfect. Gradually start to sit for a few strides here and there, then get back off of her so you end on a happy relaxed...

    I did this once when I was young (before I had kids), and while it worked out just fine (horse was lovely and I adored him), it turned out that he was 2 rather than the 3 year old I was expecting. ...

    I have, and I really think this is sidebone. (Essentially I believe you are right on, but it has a name.) Not uncommon in heavy warmbloods and drafts, can be brought about by poor shoeing and...

    I'm going to side with the kid on this one.

    That's about the age I was when I got my first horse. I was a total barn rat and rode everything I could, worked off my lessons, had wonderful...

    Nope, $10/hour does not make it worth it. When you count driving time and gas, for a couple of hours of work and just $20, and hours of being itchy and sneezy afterwards (for those of us that are...

    Hard to tell from the photos, but it looks a bit like sidebone.

    Your vet will probably be able to tell even without an xray if that is the case.

    I was big into eventing before I had kids, and I have always held a full time job. When my kids were itty bitty (i.e., before school age), I half-leased out my horse and managed to ride a couple of...
