    Correct - it's a long spat of nothing (but on the bright side, stupid moments around that turn don't always get penalized). That one still gets me the most-likely-to-have-an-error test, because it...

    So, totally depends on your horse. I probably wouldn't put studs in on most of mine, given the size of the fences and that it's a combined test. If I had one that wanted to worry about its feet a lot...

    In Ann Arbor, look at the folks at Cobblestone which is just west of town (but pretty easy to get to from Detroit). Great people, pretty farm. Plus, means you can swing through town and stop at...

    It's hard to wrap one's brain around how big a soul Seema was and how huge a hole she leaves in our community.

    Seema's been one of my close friends for more than fifteen years. In 2000, she found...

    We've had really good results with the Kong toys (not just the ones you can stuff, but ones like the Kong Squeezz bones and ring, the Kong tire, and the sticks-with-squeakers in them). Our...

    DH swears by DEET for use when running in the woods. Basic Cutter's for less intense endeavors. We've used the citronella candles but haven't seen much of an effect from them; slightly better...

    Subk is spot-on. Totally doable in the size of field you have. Additionally, you may not need to do much in the way of canters to get her fit - BE80 and BE90 are both very very doable without doing...

    You've gotten some good advice. One thing that I think can be really helpful is to be rigorous about how you are actually spending your time. Keeping a journal (or using your phone) to document how...
