    Quarter Marks Clipped

    Am I totally crazy to consider clipping quarter marks into my otherwise full body clipped bay Hunter this winter? I am an adult but my trainer will be doing most of the showing (he gets final say). I...

    I'm 13 weeks pregnant and stopped riding at about 5 weeks due to significant nausea that was made worse by riding. I also sold my made horse and purchased a fancy baby 4yo who wouldn't be an ideal...
  3. Membership Required to Show in USEF/USHJA

    So I should probably know this, but I have always been an active competitor previously. I let my USEF membership lapse because I was in between horses this year. I just bought my new fellow, but I...

    So this post is timely! I just joined this "club" last week--right after bringing a new horse home. Barn mates don't even know yet but my trainer doubles as my hubby, so that worked out nicely. ...

    My qualm with American WBs is more the lack of discretion on the part of breeders. Often, not always, the crosses are "raw" and "unrefined" with the outcome based more on luck than on establishing...

    Thanks so much everyone! He's been a gem and is such a fast learner. He's so willing and honestly the sweetest horse I've ever met. I went down for night check last night and just chilled by his...

    Another question, is there a place to get a quick quote from Markle? I only see an application and it requires a vet's check up and everything. It would be nice to get a general quote first before...

    Thanks everyone for the feedback. I'm requesting a quote from several different companies. How much do you think surgical limit should be per year? $5000 or $10,000. My plan is to self insure...

    I have a very long femur to hip ratio at 20" as well. I ride in the very forward flap County Conquest in the hunters. It fits me and my horse perfectly and I have no problems.

    I would be looking at Mortality and Major Medical. I just purchased the horse for $15k, but he will likely increase in value pretty fast over the next year and then stabilize out. How does it work...

    Ok folks I brought him home!! This horse, regardless of breed, is the total package and I love him to death! He is talented, super easy under saddle, very willing to learn, a push ride but with...

    Insurance 101 for the Newbie

    So I'm about to purchase a horse that I would like to carry insurance on. I've never had insurance on a horse previously, so I'm new to this whole scenario. If anyone would care to share the basics...

    Thanks so much everyone. Like I said we are going to see him Sunday. I'll post his sale video on Sunday so that folks and see and comment and I can get specific feedback on him and then can make a...

    Yes I am. Last summer I showed my former just above average TB in the Adults and TB Hunters at the local rated shows and had a respectable showing, so you are right that I probably don't need to...

    Honestly, I like this TB better than the WBs at this point. And, forgive the bias, but when I see American WB I RUN!!! I don't want a draft/TB cross. I would much rather have a refined, hunter...

    I thought of this too. He is papered TB, so if I claimed his TB status, we could totally ROCK the TB Hunter. But he could easily pass for a "Sport Horse." I'm pro-TB, I love the breed and find the...

    Realistically I'm not expecting what I bring along to end up as a world beater :). I'm a solid rider and just trained up a $3500 TB and sold it for $15000 as a pre children's mount. I'm investing...
  19. Next Hunter Project Debacle--High Level TB??

    Ok folks-- I'm a "self made rider" who is looking for a nice 3-4 yo project to bring up through the levels with a low/ low mid five figures budget. Goal would be to finish horse out as an "A" rated...
  20. Redwine and Frohwind Colt--Pedegree Questions

    So I'm looking at an unbroken 3 year old by Redwine and dam was by Frohwind. My trainer and I are obviously looking at the colt as an individual, but I would love to know pros and cons of the line....

    Yes, I figured that would be the case, I just wanted to double check. I've never had a bit "outside of the norm" before.

    Ok, I'll contact Kocher tack and see what I can come up with. Nothing is a miracle bit, but my horse liked it best out of like a dozen bits I've tried so far and it has had the intended result over...
