    I did one close to 10 years ago and didn't love it. I felt like the process was very unfair to the horses. He intentionally tried to mess with your focus (and that's fine) but it created yucky...

    Completely off topic, but I grew up in Williamsburg and started riding lessons when I was 8 years old at a place near Jamestown on the James River. It was called Drummond Fields. It was built in...

    Following because I'm having the same issue and all this stinking rain is driving me crazy! I'm in the same boat (no pun intended!), in that we didn't have a problem until the area around the barn...

    I've discovered Duluth's Black Hills pants. They are nylon on the outside and are water and wind resistant, and they are lined with the softest material I have ever felt- almost like a silky fleece...

    I am on my second BC. They certainly can be quirky but they are also incredibly trainable. My first BC Charlotte, was allowed in a local church where we held our Pony Club meetings, and my second...

    I enjoyed her clinic when I rode in one about 15 years ago. Explained things well and was just challenging enough without over facing. And she got on my horse to demonstrate galloping positions and...

    The Pony Club overlords from 30 years ago didn't have breathable blankets and materials either. They'd probably be pretty chill about today's breathable fabrics- much improved from those wretched...

    I wear disposable Tyvek coveralls over my clothes (and definitely NO bra) and have found that it makes it much more doable. Cannot stand having those little hairs poking me!

    Very cool video. I have a heart rate monitor and use it on Elliot. He thinks the Bobcat (tractor, not the animal!) is VERY scary and his heart rate usually shoots up to about 75 as he walks by it.
