    You can always teach a horse new tricks, I had a mare that started foxhunting at 26, packing my 4 yo son. I like katyb's definition. I suppose I would add not just do what I want, etc, but do that...

    The sale of boots and wraps over the last couple of decades is in my opinion a great example of convincing the masses they need something, when more often than not they don't. I only use boots if...

    Ruth Ginsburg is Supreme Court. Douglas Ginsburg, no relation is Court of Appeals.

    Dan Quayle served in the House and his wife hunted with Casanova. What about Eugene McCarthy when he was in Congress, I know he car followed with Rappahannock in his later life. I'm sure there are...

    I have been fortunate to be able to keep mine in appropriate board situations, self board w/pasture or available pasture board nearby, to be able to let them live out their days until infirmities...

    Oh, don't get me started. Yes there is a thread from probably 10 years ago. I encountered a pair of endurance riders with a horse running loose while riding a green horse and packing the veteran-...

    I booked Ant's Lodges in S. Africa through In The Saddle, most excellent. I was aiming for one of their connections in Botswana, but Ant's is able to accommodate slow, non-horsey riders like my...

    I've hunted with Middleburg but with maybe only 60 out. Most I've encountered was 105 one day at Orange County, 1990ish.

    True, but the original Stephens loss was bringing horse out of barn, taking it to a fence line and butchering and passing over fence if I understood the accounts correctly. And the examples I gave...

    I have in fact butchered a horse or two to feed to foxhounds. For that purpose you don't have to do the fine tuning of carving out the desired cuts of meat, but you could, if you have the manpower...

    Right, out of Chattanooga, also known as Red Ranger saddles, out of business since the 70s I think. I never sat in one but heard good things about them.

    There is a 'what's it worth?' column in...

    Years ago, when my tb lost an eye, he became very one-sided since he naturally tended to move to the sighted side (right). It got to the point that his musculature was uneven and he began...

    That's very cute! I did not do a wash stall, or even any indoor plumbing, water for the barn is from a frost faucet just outside between the tack room door and the main double barn doors. Reason...

    Ah, yes, I learned by doing in the 60s that 'loping them down' (or longeing them down) gives you a very fit horse who then takes longer to 'lope down.'

    Western pleasure justly gets its criticism...

    Well, I too have two horses but decided, it's the only barn I'm going to build, so go whole hog. 36 x 48 center aisle, four stalls (the two for my horses have 24 x 36 runs and I could do that on the...

    My impression is similar to GrayMare's, attitude, not loading, is the problem- though loading is where he chooses to take his stand. I tend to like dealing with such issues before giving up on a...

    1974 isn't too old if it's been well cared for. My '65 Tex Tan is still perfectly usable, just doesn't fit current stock. Ditto my English 1971 Crosby and similar vintage Stubben.

    You've gotten some good tips. I will also suggest that you school the mounting block at the end of your ride. There is no more 'what will the ride bring?' anticipation, and the whole point of the...

    Well, either of my English saddles works, Wychanger-Barton and Smith-Worthington. If I need a lot of gear for the day, I use my High Quality western saddle, it's a little custom brand here in Utah.
