    Many people would be grateful for the opportunity to ride 6-7 decent horses a day (and you don't make them sound like nags). I understand being frustrated but keep in mind most other barns won't...

    I completely understand the perfectionist tendencies! My problem stems from the fear of not being able to find a distance, although I actually have a pretty good eye. Here's the thing, at least for...

    I am the same way as you, and I thought leasing a really bold horse would fix me.

    It did not. It made me feel out of control and panicked and I never would be able to show her.

    I ended up...

    What is your storage situation like? If it's a closet or relatively enclosed storage room, Damp Rid was my best friend when I lived in FL. I would be reluctant to store leather without any air flow...

    I would hit them up for an exchange - they've exchanged a few things that had very much been used for me when flaws arose. Maybe they've switched hardware?

    I agree with Belmont about the feet!

    Otherwise, a very helpful resources because the HITS site is super non-user friendly. My only suggestion for improvement is a # competed in the results tabs.

    Too funny! My horse is coming 7 and one of the quietest/laziest horses that I've ever met. Even when he's his version of fresh, hot is not a word I would ever use. Has a big step once you get him...

    Could be worse - I've heard the footing in Ocala is quite boggy. The warm-ups are terrible and the show rings won't be able to take much more rain.

    I like her. I would agree on a good PPE solely based on the number of starts, but she looks like a nice type. My horse has Gone West as a grandsire and the general opinion is they have good brains,...

    There was someone else interested in my horse when I was looking at him - had driven to a show to see him go after trying him twice and planned to vet. So I asked if they would take a check for XYZ...

    Good ride, cute horse but it looks like more of a tidy first jumper round than a polished big eq round. Your horse is slow to move off your outside leg and bulges through the turns a bit, and once...

    What about your (and her) hotel? My average bill from the horse show office - no trainer costs - is about $600-700 or so for one horse showing in maybe 4-6 classes with no nominating fee. The...

    Breeches and tack are nothing in comparison to taking two horses on the road... Think $3-5k/week.

    That said, babysitting is really good money and like braiding, it's cash.

    Use the bit guards, but they won't solve your problem unless you can get the cuts to heal first. A week or two off in the winter isn't the worst thing in the world and you can always lunge before...

    Yes, but a daily ulcer supplement will not cure existing ulcers, only help with prevention. Omeprazole or ranitidine are the only proven cures.

    This was my thought on where to start as well. Get a week's worth of Ulcerguard, use daily and you should know relatively quickly if it is helping or not. A handful of Tums before you get on can...

    This year I have only used Rambo/Rhino/nicer Amigo clothing and I think the smooth lining really helps - no rubs on my thin skinned TB and his coat is even shinier than in non-blanket season. It...
