    If he's currently on 24/7 turnout, I'd start cutting his feed/hay in his current situation. Others gave you advice about starting this - I am not a feed expert lol. See how that goes, then reevaluate...

    I would turn him out for a year in a large field in as 'natural horsey' situation as you have available. Pull shoes, take him off all feed/meds except hay, and let him be a horse. He sounds like he...

    I just wanted to stop by and update about my earlier posts. I took bensmom's advice and conditioned the bridle using my fingers (my hands felt so good after!) then buffed it with a soft cloth,...

    Thank you! I haven't used it in a week or so, last time was on a Biltmore Estate trail ride and arabian pony got very wound up so bridle got extremely sweaty and is now a little stiff again. I will...

    I love love LOVE my soaps! My paddock boots are, for the first time ever, getting cleaned REGULARLY. I just cleaned them as well as my dubarrys and my hands smell delicious and feel soft.

    I'm not posting much anymore but had to report because I just got my order today. Thanks for such quick delivery, Bensmom! It arrived less than a week after I ordered but I've been away. I got citrus...

    I'm sure you know this already but just in case remember to bend your knees while you dismount because it reduces the shock. Maybe dismount using a mounting block or the fence until your knees get...

    Cats seem to love the heat. My friend has a cat who loves being in their attic, which is obviously un air-conditioned and stuffy, but Alex said she couldn't get the cat back down, so now they let her...

    I know someone from Asheville and she speaks very highly of the boarding stables at the Biltmore. She had her own farm so did not board there, but knew the place & its reputation well.

    I think once every 2 weeks is perfect - trainer can't accuse you of being overbearing, but you'll still get to keep an eye on pony's condition. Barring anything drastic he really can't deteriorate...

    Going to step in for the wear it crowd. Your father cares about you and wants you to be safe. I can easily see more equestrian sports going this route anyway in the next few years, especially now...

    I literally gasped and whimpered in horror at that picture. Hopefully someone knows someone who can pull some weight for this dog? Good luck.

    Would your mom take lessons with the trainer you like? Though you cannot expect him to bad mouth other trainer for you (obviously), maybe just by taking lessons with someone else & having a positive,...

    Kiera: At 17, now is the time to learn how to stand up for yourself and what is right. If you don't learn now, either you never will or you'll find it a lot harder down the road (see recent post...

    The great thing about gifts like horse treats and saddle soap is that any rider will appreciate them no matter what discipline. I would be thrilled to receive Bensmoms soap from anyone! I'm sure your...

    Universal check list items....
    ~Measure out feed for each horse, add pre bagged supplements. Maybe consider color coding/labeling buckets.

    So glad you chimed in!! I was so sure it was you and it was driving me crazy that I couldn't find the thread! But yes, if I ever need to build a tack trunk, oops I mean AMOIRE, this is what it will...

    We all need to vent sometimes. That is what friends (in RL and online!) are for. I think the checklist is an awesome idea. Simple aspects of horse care (like closing stall doors, cleaning water...

    Dude the search function has been really messed up since the latest upgrade. You type something in that you know there is lots of, and it gives you the individual words but nothing with all those...

    How much more do you like your full time job than the managing the barn? Can you see yourself being burnt out from that in 5 years time? If you can, then I'd maybe add a different job or going back...

    Do you know who will be replacing current trainer?

    I see two sides:
    1) You are starting college in the fall. That takes up A LOT of time (ask those of us who've been through it lol!). A 2 hr...

    It is so nice to hear that someone had a good experience sending their horses out. Good for you! Just out of interest, did you visit them while you were there? Take lessons? Observe training sessions?

    This is so awesome and really restores my faith in humanity. You guys are the best. I cannot imagine what a relief it must be for this girls family to know her horses expenses are covered for next...
