    Those who are lucky enough to have all day, all night, or 24-7 turnout are in a very different boat than those of us who only have access to very limited turnout, like the OP said she did. IME, a...

    towing question - 4wd

    Those of you who have 4x4s, do you always go into 4wd when hauling your horse trailer - or do you only use 4wd when needed for road conditions?

    If it matters, the truck is a one ton dually and it...

    Thank you, everyone! This is all really helpful.

    To answer some of the questions, friend was told it is a modular home and NOT a double wide. I'll definitely pass on the information to her...
  7. pros / cons of a modular home on a horse farm?

    A friend is looking for a farmette in southern NC. She found what she thinks is the perfect property (affordable, lots of flat, cleared land, and a nice barn already built). The home on the...

    Thanks so much for your thorough response and thanks to those who sent me a FM.

    I know it all depends on the particular business. What I'm interested in, though, is how different farms handle...

    I completely agree with this as well... The "right" person would never ask you to give up your passion. However, if you find the right person, you wouldn't make them feel as if your passion is more...
  12. Questions for FT grooms / Barns with FT grooms

    I'm working on a business plan and was curious to know how other barns handle groom schedules and duties. If any of the grooms, BOs, or BMs out there would be willing to answer these questions here...

    The last bill I got was for 2 horses both insured for $5k mortality and major medical. It was about $865 IIRC. HTH.

    BOs -- If you have a "no outside dogs" policy, how do you handle and enforce this with vets and farriers who bring their dogs everywhere? Do you ask that they keep their dogs in their trucks, or do...
  15. Chetolah Farm in Monroe, NC -- anyone have any info?

    A friend of mine is looking into purchasing a horse property in Monroe, NC. The property is now vacant. It was previously the site of Chetolah Farm, and I believe the owners of Chetolah Farm now...

    Honestly curious why you say this.

    IME, a toe pointing IN leads to an unstable leg, as your calf isn't resting properly along the horse's side if your heel is out and your toe is in. Ideally,...

    IIRC, as I have been pricing new trailers, the load lights are relatively inexpensive (~$200) to add. If they are that inexpensive (in the grand scheme of things), I would probably just go ahead and...

    2 + 1 trailer question - dividers

    I've been looking for a 3H trailer and really like the idea of a 2 + 1. I went to see one, but it has no divider between the straight stalls and the box/slant stall in the front. Is this normal or...

    The prize list has 3 Training 1 and Training 2 classes: beginner rider, beginner horse, and Open/AA/JR. Not every TL1 or TL2 is for beginner riders -- it is just one of the options.

  20. Questions about Training Level "Beg. Rider" classes

    Where can I find what constitutes a beginner rider for these purposes? I don't see it in the prize list and I'm not seeing it in the USEF dressage rules either.

    Can a person who qualifies as a...

    Thanks, all!

    I spoke to USEF today. They said it takes a couple of days to process, so her membership should show up later today or tomorrow. For those who register online, you will get an email...

    Thanks. I purchased it online. I was just concerned because you can find her online, but it says "Horse ID Only" (and she had never been previously registered). I guess it takes a few days.

    Thanks everyone!

    This would be for jumpers only, not hunters or eq. They are the TredStep pro gaiters -- smooth leather, back zip, and match my boots. I think we should be okay.
