    I have a table-backed QH -perch X and recently got a Duett Rondo with 38cm tree. Can't say enough good things about it -- within 5 minutes of my first ride in it, she was using her shoulders and...

    Yeah, I wouldn't use PV solar for this application. Can you reduce the size of the tank and fill more frequently? A 16gal heated tub only draws 250W.

    I guarantee that in Tennessee, your cold winter with extended freezes is not the same as northern Midwest winter. So it's all relative. Cost of electricity also varies wildly among regions.

    Consider the cost to run the power, though. Stock tank heaters are usually 1500 watt. If you live in an area with high electricity costs, that will add up fast. As in, $125 or more per month to...

    Trailering: I'll share my secret invention because I'll never actually build it. :lol: It's a variation of the in-trailer horse monitoring idea, but it's about you communicating with your horse...

    Last thing-- try to ask the questions in an open-ended way, reassure the seller that you understand that every horse has its imperfections and quirks. They're more likely to relax and open up .

    I like the idea of asking it to do something new-- such as get 3 or 4 steps of shoulder-fore as you come out of the corner. Or a couple steps of sidepass, or turn on the haunches. Just a little,...

    I'm half-convinced this was yet another troll post, hoping to incite a riot with the waahh I'm poor comment. Fits the pattern-- OP with less than 5 posts, asking something kinda normal but with a...

    Ha! I too thought "sitting on rank stuff" was going to include a skunk.

    I had an annoying fall like that too--walking around on a loose rein to cool down. Wasn't even a big spook, but I was...

    When I say creeepy culture, I was talking more about the mysogyny and implied blackmail (plus the earlier stories of how they've been trying to kneecap their rival Lyft).

    Based on these stories, it seems like a seriously creepy/scary corporate culture. Have never used the service since I live in the boondocks, but definitely wouldn't use it now even if it were...

    WAIT. You cannot afford it now. Use your parents' generosity for helping with a downpayment on a house, or paying college debt. And if you are a great rider, put your energy into networking with...

    Me too. Sure hope they don't do this to me!!

    Just cut a 2" styrofoam insulation panel to cover, and put two short bungee cords across the bucket in an X pattern. Could punch holes in the top rim of the bucket to give the cords attachment points.

    The TR center I volunteered at had bad pigeon problems in the indoor arena. They put up netting attached to the roof trusses, blocking off (in theory) anyplace to roost/nest. Problem is, it's...
