    Buy 3 or 4 pieces of PVC, put holes top and bottom for a rope to go through - knot rope so PVC "sits" on rope knot. Hang on hook on the wall. Holds 3-4 blankets.

    Focusing on dressage will improve his "regulation" ability for jumping, so I would concentrate on dressage and occasionally jump. Easier on his legs too!

    We owned both bush hog and finishing mower when we lived in Florida. If there isn't a lot of tree roots/rock (like here in Ky where we live now) then the finishing mower that will self "adjust" to...

    Have horse tested for Cushings - that's why my mare's coat was getting thicker and why pony looked like he was in Siberia, not a Florida summer.

    Find a LARGE tub and pre-pump water into the tub. Take water for the Rainbirds from the tub (pump will provide pressure). If tub isn't large enough continue to fill tub while watering with Rainbirds.

    No experience but looks intere4sting. I'd love to know what the cost is (versus RAMM fencing). Looks interesting.

    My mare started this exact behavior around 6 years of age - turned out to be a thyroid problem. At one point I never knew how sensitive she would be - one day a shift in the saddle got me flying...

    Our local Ag center (in Florida) told us to lime and fertilize the grass, seed where needed, and the grass will out grow the weeds (IF you have enough pasture to rotate). Local Ag center can also...

    Stall base - Over Clay

    OK - so we've moved to Kentucky from Florida and temporarily I have the horses in the old (soon to be hay) barn. Unlike Florida's soil (sand) the clay here gets wet with urine and stays wet and...

    I agree with Contact Info. – phone number, business address and mailing address (if different from business address). The different addresses helps me distinguish "fly by night" companies versus...

    My trainer had a student that went to a local German trainer who put her in that situation - she ended up with a broken neck.

    So no - I wouldn't have a rider up with side reins on.
  14. Yes - it's great for their minds (and mine)! :)

    First - I would suggest NOT using draw reins (at this time). Horse will only learn to come behind the vertical. (I rode in a double bridle when a teenager and was still hesitant to go to draw reins...

    This. If anything on the other side add a hot wire on top that discourages livestock interaction.

    Action pics - he appears to use his hind legs well.
    Nice topline.

    How is that for ice and snow? Can vehicles still "get a grip"?

    For my Florida barn we used a shell/sand mixture. No problems with horses feet and lasted for years. After about 20 years we had to add some more to "low" spots and use tractor to smooth out ruts,...

    My SO agrees with your SO and used larger posts. It's been close to 20 years and most of them look great (cypress so bug and rotting resistant). Larger posts last longer.

    My Merhow is 8 ft wide and plenty big enough for my 16.3 hand horse. 3H, LQ, Slant load with tack compartment in the back. I agree with cdalt, I would not want a narrower trailer for my big mare.

    Just to let everyone know -
    There is 1 Ag station between FL and Ky which is in Fl near G border (at least along I-75) and you must stop. They never looked at horses, only paperwork. No other stops...
