    Really? I've always figured the people behind Breyer State University started it as a joke to see if people would get it. Breyer, as in FAKE horses? BSU, as in Bull Shit University? That can't be...

    First off: have you talked to a vet to see if there's a problem or pain somewhere that would cause her to crib so badly?

    What kind(s) of cribbing collar have you used? I'm not a big fan of...

    You're lucky.

    I've fallen off at speed (full gallop) once. I ended up with a compound fractured left leg, a torn right ACL, 3 surgeries, and lasting issues.

    I am not am ML fan at all (was indifferent to her before, now I quite dislike her). HOWEVER.

    In the photo being critiqued, I think ML is riding very well. She's a bit far in the backseat, but...

    I'm not sure exactly who this is directed at, but I don't think anyone is blaming the organizers for calling it quits. Yeah, I'm complaining that it's over--because it sucks. Stuart was a beautiful...

    Stuart Horse Trials is no more

    Just got an email that 2015 was the last Stuart HT..

    This makes me so sad.. I never competed (and probably never would have), but xc jump judging was one of the highlights of my summer.

    Agreed. I watched all the videos and appreciated her approach and comments. She's not saying "this pad is stupid, you should buy this one." She explains what is good or bad about each pad and why...

    Any one of those things wouldn't be a big deal, but everything? It's up to you if the quality of the work is worth the hassle, but IMO you'd be justified in find a new farrier.

    Horse people asking, though... no. I was talking about this with a girl at the barn a few days...

    I have one pair of orthotics which I put in whatever shoes I'm wearing. This usually means my orthotics get moved twice a day (barn boots to work shoes to barn boots).

    I'm in WNY also.

    My farrier charges $70 for a trim. A year ago front shoes were $120, but I'm assuming that's increased. That's above the norm for the area... I usually see trims for $35 and...
