    If it was me, I'd take the higher paying job and schedule time to go see my horses. Go for the steady job that isn't at risk of going under.

    Right now, I work two jobs - one is a full time, 8-5...

    English and Western saddles are made with different leathers. English saddles are generally softer, more pliable and wouldn't hold up to the type of environment western saddles end up in. Western...

    I haven't had to euthanize a horse yet, but have had to euthanize and say goodbye to other pets. I've cremated them all, and have their urns at home with me. It makes me feel more comfortable,...

    I have a Standardbred mare who is often mistaken for some type of Warmblood. One woman told me, quite decisively, that I was very lucky to have such a lovely Trakehner. I replied, "Thank you, I agree...

    Is it possible that the mare needs some chiro adjustment? The reason I ask... my mare's saddle fits her like a glove, to the point where saddle fitters are absolutely amazed at how nicely it fits. By...

    It really depends on who is asking to ride my horse. I have a friend who rides my horse and she is a beautiful rider. She teaches my horse something new every single time. Sometimes she'll ask if her...

    That was probably a pretty silly question, eh? :)

    What I meant was, for anyone who has tried multiple scents of this soap, which one did you prefer personally? From the website, there isn't a...

    I just found this thread (based on some other reviews about Higher Standards soap) and I have to ask... what is the BEST scent? I'm talking the regular scents, not the limited edition ones (because...

    Wow. It's not often I get chills from watching a horse gallop, but wow. Look at how he just digs in and goes! Wow.

    Where I scratch depends on the horse I'm trying to love on. Both my mares are extremely different in their likes and dislikes, and I try to respect that. I feel it's similar to expecting them to...

    Questions about cinches

    I'm in the market for a new cinch, but the options are endless. I'm fond of mohair/string cinches, but that's about the only preference I have. I have a few questions:

    1. What is the proper way to...

    If this was my dog, I'd be on a rampage for justice. I'd own every single Petco by the time I was done with it. Yes, people make mistakes... but mistakes shouldn't cost a life. I've made countless...

    I am my dogs' person or owner. I am not their guardian or mother, but they are part of my family. My boyfriend seems to think he's 'dad' to his dog. It seems weird to me, but whatever makes him happy.

    Dear fellow boarder,

    Just because you do not discipline your brat of a horse doesn't mean I'm abusing mine when she acts up and I put her in her place. I don't like when my horse tries to run me...

    I have two horses, but only a price for one.

    Horse #1 is my heart horse. She is a glorified lawn mower who is not broke to saddle, but has earned her retirement after a successful harness racing...

    I adopted a dog from Cancun, Mexico about 4 years ago. She lived on the streets and had no concept of house training or that house cats were not meant to be eaten. I brought her home and in those 4...

    I'm a tack hoarder. I love restoring old leather, but I won't touch anything with dry rot. Mold and thirsty leather is one thing, but when I can crack the leather and it resembles beef jerky... I...

    I buy and sell a lot of saddles. I had an Albion that sat in a consignment store for months and months and months. It was priced at $800 and in fantastic condition. Unfortunately, it was brown in...
