    Definitely an extrovert. If I'm not engaged with others and my surroundings, and have to be "in my head" too long, I get really anxious. I'm not necessarily chatty at the barn, I usually don't get...

    Clipped horse kept blanketed. When I don't clip, a slightly damp towel rub really helps get that extra dust off that doesn't seem to with just brushes. Brushing a winter coat the opposite direction...

    My experience being a barn rat mostly consisted of working camp and extra riding time. Growing up in the city, my parents chose the lesson barn I grew up riding at because it had a van service. There...

    My horse does this same thing. He'll do it under saddle and while leading. I hadn't been riding him because of soundness issues, but when I put him back into work is when it started. Didn't want to...

    To me, a long sleeve shirt is much more comfortable than short sleeves underneath a jacket. I have an RJ Classic show shirt and love it: super comfortable, cool, and stretchy. Inexpensive show shirts...

    I guess I wasn't clear, but I would obviously pay this boarder (who lives down the road) for extra work. It was the BO's suggestion.

    I think what I'll do is see if there are ways I can improve...

    Yes, this is what I do, and if I can, stick them in front of a fan; they end up cooled off and barely damp, not soaking wet. Everyday in the summer, I find my horse covered in dried and wet sweat...

    During the summer it's common practice for me to spray them off BEFORE riding. Never have had a rubbing problem. As long as they're not muddy, go for it. Or get a no-fill turnout sheet.
