There's 6 weeks left in the spring hunt season, and/or all of the area hunts host spring trail ride series -- these are a gentle intro to riding across country in a group, and I'll arrange kennel...
I had it in a new farm managers' cottage built by my former father in law.
It was, like they said above, da bomb, but very expensive, so when I built my own house many years later (many years ago)...
* Oh, and unless it's a High Holy Day, it is rare in the US to braid.
If it was a high holy day, that is included in your hireling price. I do 8-10 plaits, and it takes me 20 minutes per horse. If...
I do hirelings.
I all but insist on my tack. Every horse in my care (20'ish) has his or her own saddle, girth, pad, bridle and accessories that are custom fit and custom selected for THEM.
There's no way, I guess, to 'do' radiant floors without starting from scratch?
I have nice marble 12x12s in good shape, etc., and the downstairs is finished, so we can't get to the framing without...
I keep my house quite cool in winter (I prefer it that way. Plus I'm cheap. Plus I'm poor. :)
I take baths in winter - realllly hot ones so I'm relieved to get out of it, lobster red and nice and...
Three springs is in Columbus NC. He repairs, custom builds, everything.
Need a lift?
Shipping with slot/s for human or other cargo southbound (no room for horses, sb, though) - Northern Virginia to Richmond Va then to Tryon NC on Wednesday, Dec. 31.
Returning with an...
I have one about the same age that I lovelovelove.
Though the roof does leak.
Otherwise, it is great.
I'll do it for you.
No, Conquests run very very wide - I just got a narrow (maybe even extra narrow) and it fits medium. The County rep will tell you.
I have 2 old Stabilizers (love them), one old Eventer (meh) and a...
I respectfully, but wholly, disagree with the ^^ assertion that 'Tb's are more unpredictable.'
On the contrary, they are so carefully bred (for sport - what is racing besides a sport?!) that they...
Wingo Star got up. Tennessee Bend was put down.
ODH hunts Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Somewhat randomly, attire is 'formal' on Tuesdays and Saturdays, and ratcatcher on Thursdays.
Formal attire is always correct, but the only way to...
Oh we got proper rain all right.
Absolutely the best racing, hands down, in the nation today.
Watch for my pix on fb later (tomorrow probably.)
I remember that day at MH p to...
It was incredible. Gorgeous course(s), amazingly competitive, great judging. A few did as the entry form said, 'ratcatcher, no braids' but there were plenty of braids and plenty of black and a few...
There's a far-away pic of me in that getup on 'page 2' of my 'photos' bar on my website, but its pretty far off so you can't really see the peach.
Sincerely, I get it that we want to be...
We're *hacking* over, naturally Dahling. 10 going out of here .... :)
OP and everybody
The 9/27 opening meet for the competition is at Poe's Run, also known as Julia's Bottom (tongue in cheek) across from Hunter's Rest.
Address would be North Poes Road, Flint Hill...
No one cares. Just tidy and conservative.
I think a lady looks partciularly cute in a men's tie and button down. I have a peach button down and a green tie, dark green show coat and rust breeches.
There could be 100 in the 3 fields.
They'll rock and roll, no matter what the sport. The judges have to have something to ... judge.
BTW, OP, Ardmore is 3/4 mile northeast of the 688/647...
OP Please not a velvet cover.
You. Look. Fine. In. The. Hunt. Field.
Well mounted, neatly attired, correctly turned out.
I get it that this has turned into a far broader chat but for goodness...
Oh I didn't realize it said informal.
Then I agree with SSR (who is the fount of all information plus a regular rider with PFH) - I'd say no braiding for certain.
This is the first one they've done, so not sure about your questions, historically.
Yes flat tack for sure, no figure 8's if you want a prize. (Though if you prefer to be able...
