    My hydrants are all Campbells, but Campbell seems to have been acquired by some other company and it is getting harder to get the replacement parts.

    Sounds like people who really don't want boarders, or they want absentee boarders, but they do want income.

    I'd leave.

    That does not sound like arthritis, but anemia or some other problem, potentially a bleeding ulcer due to all that ibuprofen you have been taking...I say that from personal experience with a bleeding...

    While his hands are very busy looking, it does not seem to bother his horse, which is what more important.

    I agree that this pair is likely not going to qualify for the team, scores are a long...

    Ha, I have seriously wide-body horses. I've had to really work on developing my flexibility over the years. My horses go between wide and XW trees.

    But, I do have to stretch.

    I sit on my ball straddling it, like I am on a horse. My heels are usually fairly well aligned under my hips/shoulders....well, when I'm not kneeling on it, or goofing around or slouching...because...

    You want qualified, but you also want someone who makes you love riding. There are several trainers in my area, all are qualified, but one or two make me feel I should just quit riding.

    Now, that...

    So true on the youngsters. I buy yearlings, but I have my own farm, so while I am not boarding, I am giving up a slot that could be an income producing stall.

    My last yearling (nearing 6) is not...

    My reason for not wanting to compete against the pros is that the pro classes are usually Wed thru Fri, when I am at WORK.

    I have not shown HJ in a few years and had missed that rule change on owner no longer being able to pay entries for an amateur riding a horse the rider does not own.

    I usually buy yearlings, or sometimes 2-3 year olds, but I haven't gotten a started one in a while. I don't vet. I don't try (that whole unstarted thing). I spend several months internet shopping...

    My current trainer is young and athletic. I called him because my young horse almost bucked off another trainer...not so young, nor athletic. My young boy was learning that he could intimidate a...

    I think I recall that bot flies are species specific in the targeted hosts, so while there are bots that can infest humans, they are not the ones that lay eggs on your horses' legs.

    Humans don't...

    I have used it, but always for products that were not holding up. A girth that was cracking when it should not have, a pair of tall boots that one broke in completely differently than the other.

    What imagery has worked for me is to think of a heavy wheelbarrow, and that you need to push that heavy wheelbarrow up a hill. So there is a pushing movement that largely comes from your core, but...

    Interesting. I'd like to know what models those are, because every one of those two brands that I've sat in have had quite narrow twists. Often combined with a high pommel.

    I like a wide twist. ...
