    Those ranchtanks look interesting but they're pricy. A friend told me that their neighbor used a pump to circulate air around the docks at his lake house to keep it from freezing so he could leave...

    "Trainers" or "Clinicians" like this continue to exist because people continue to pay them. Too many riders mistake harshness for useful criticism or believe that a certain level of accomplishment...

    I vote for the tank with a heater. I wrapped my tank with 2" thick upholstery foam that I slid into waterproof contractor bags to insulate the tank. We were able to unplug the heaters during the...

    1920's house with oil furnace and old fashioned cast iron radiators (not steam). Programmable thermostat is at 58 at night, comes up to 64 for wake up, down to 60 during the day when I'm at work and...

    As fourmares says, it depends on the horse. And sometimes on their mood. My pony had that setup. I think she's just laze. In the heat of summer or the cold of the winter she makes a mess of her...

    eBay and Craigslist will both have something to offer. I was in the Smith Worthington store last week and they are clearing out their paddock boots, which are reasonably priced at $29.95:...

    Does hilltopping mean foot followers or those who go on horse but don't jump?
    Hilltoppers are riders who follow the action more slowly and at a distance. It is often (but not always) riders who are...

    I used peat with a bit of shavings mixed in on two occasions when I had a horse on long term stall rest. It cut down significantly on the ammonia smell and was easy to pick. When my horse was...

    I agree with Huntin'Pony that you should have time to work on fitness before January. Call the organizers of the pace and find out how long the ride is and work on building up to that distance. The...

    I've always loved my Kerrits tights. They may not be show-worthy but they're darned comfy for everyday riding. Yoga pants work too.

    I'm jealous of your trails! There's very little that you can't practice on the trail as well as you can in the arena, and you can have more fun doing it. Vive la difference :)

    Hunter Paces were originally intended to be ridden at a hunting pace. However, many riders come out to enjoy a ride at a slower pace. While that might not track with the original intent, most hunts...

    I started out using 5"-6", like Goforagallop. Then my mare decided to become a piglet :) She has a stall with a runout, so she can go outdoors at any time. But she uses her stall as a toilet,...

    I would wear a man's tie if I could tie one competently. (I know, it's a skill I should have mastered by now). And Foxglove, we must have pictures! The mellowed Madras sounds wonderful.

    No boots, fitted pad. No martingale if you don't usually use one, but yes to a breastplate if you have one. If your buyer knows the hunt and the territory they should be able to give a guess as to...

    I use a sheepskin pad often for riding (although I haven't yet used it to hunt). Anyway, I use one of those brushes made of a paddle with thin wire bristles (I think they're sold as puppy brushes in...

    I too have used the scrunchy pocket hoses, Two or three of them will cover a lot of ground. Then we wrapped our 100 gallon Rubbermaid tank in my "redneck tank insulator": 2" thick upholstery foam,...

    At my barn (4 horses, 3 ponies, one mini) we dump the manure into a dump trailer which is then emptied about every 5 days. It definitely helps with the flies.

    Yes, try Hunter's Rest. It might be a bit more than 8 hours, but not by a lot, and you can stay at her place and hunt your horse when you can get down for a visit.

    Thanks to Hunters Rest I had the opportunity to meet him and see his hounds and his kennels. With every story he told he brought hunting to life in a way no one else could.

    I've attended the Intro clinic with my local hunt three times, once as an auditor and then with my pony the last two years. I found that the staff did a great job of pacing the clinic to the level of...

    When the mane is roached, how do you keep the grab strap from sliding down the neck when grazing at checks? A piece of yarn secured to the breastplate?
    I ride with it all...mane, breastplate and...
