    Love your post and the photos. I did much the same growing up. Rode my first horse everywhere for miles and most often bareback. Tied him to everything. He was so tolerant; as was the little...

    First let me say I LOVE the books. I've re-read them 3 times now and will likely re-read the entire thing again when a new book comes out. However, Catriona Balfe as Claire simply does not work for...

    M O'connor, the Releve sounds wonderful but there's not a distributor within 50 miles of me and I'm not paying freight for something already that expensive. Though I do agree it's a great product,...

    I think she previously mentioned that her mare gets Alfalfa hay. If trying to cut calories, Alcar is probably a good alternative. Let us know what you think. I agree too about losing the ration...

    An excellent point. I'm only 5'2" but am long for my size from hip to knee but short waisted. Even so, I can absolutely tell how much my body position and balance affects a smaller horse's way of...

    HUGE pet peeve of mine. I've had so much time and money wasted over horse height. Yes some people are ignorant but an awful lot just lie through their teeth. It's despicable. Horse measuring...
