    If your horses are large (i.e., long-bodies)...

    If your horses are large (i.e., long-bodies) you'll want straight load versus slant load; the length of slant load stalls are constrained by the overall width of the trailer relative to traffic...

    If you have a community landfill/dump see if people bring in old bed frames. The angle iron used to hold up the mattresses (along the sides) work well for us in covering up edges of 2x4s, etc., that...

    Another advantage of cedar is its light weight relative to other woods. I did an Aspen wood ceiling on my LQ for the same reason, light weight.

    One tip I will give you is if the windows in the LQ...

    McClain and Rothchild; it's always nice to see the not-so-obvious horse (even to his rider) show the others how it's done.

    Liza and Brunello - what a pair, what a relationship, what a trouper he...

    Same idea but we use a couple of short cable ties made into a loop on each of the retracting hook things. The benefit of the cable ties is that they're a little rigid so they stand up and are easier...

    I think posters may be forgetting that one of earliest effects of drinking too much is bad judgement - as in, not realizing you've had too much to drink. Or maybe even not realizing that their...

    Maybe what's un-American is that George isn't still coaching the US team. Who made that decision? I'm thinking that he still has so much to offer to improve riding and horsemanship even at the...

    My husband's horse did that, too, and yes it was considered weaving, probably because in the head-swinging she was actually shifting weight between L-R front feet (without actually moving the feet). ...

    Coincidentally our own self-designed 13-yo run-in type barn is very much like the layout in your first rendering, with an 8' overhang off the front. That gives us a 24x20 horse/donk area where they...

    Since this was an organized ride I'm assuming there was someone who was sending the riders out, recording departure times, etc. IMO that's a great opportunity for the "official" to give the riders a...

    Roasted salted peanuts in the shell, available by the bag at most grocery stores and Costco/Sams. My horse and donk, who were used to sweet treats, seem to like these just as much.

    I also had a great experience with Jan at Grand Circuit via phone when I wanted to know about using White Lightening Gel for my donk's white line problem. She was not only service oriented but...

    Can you get Timothy pellets? That's what I use with my easy keeper, with v/m and Remission mixed in and soaked for a few minutes to make sure the supps don't get left behind.

    Report in the area is that 4 horses died. Cause is unknown and under investigation. No other information is circulating publicly at this point. The local paper does not publish on Mondays.

    I've never used it on my horses but my husband and I love Absorbine Veterinary Gel on our own aches and pains, whether seeming to be muscle or joint. It definitely generates heat. Doesn't cost much...

    Hokan Thorn would be another option in the Tryon area, trained in Germany, international competitor, Gold Medal, brought many horses to GP, etc. He's at Cross Creek Farm which is right off I-26 at...

    I don't know about how well one works for barking but I used a high-pitch device called a "Dazer" (you carry and press a button) to get rid of some aggressive-seeming dogs that used to follow us on...

    The great thing about trail riding is that most people don't care about your tack or what you wear, as long as it's safe. In my area we see all kinds and it's a great way to learn about different...
