    2015 was quite a "wake up" year for me. I had no idea how many people routinely drugged their horses to show and hunt. We had a bigger name local rider come to try one of my client's horses as a...

    Weird. I've never had any horse freak out over a fake tail? Almost all of ours get one, but we don't practice with them at home. They get them at the show. I guess I'm just lucky or maybe have horses...

    I've helped with this twice -

    The first one was a 14 year old student. Her mother and I picked out a horse for her without her ever meeting it (it was a risk I was willing to take). I hauled it to...

    This is my $50 auction pony. She was a camp pony that was dumped at the end of the year and was skin and bones. She's 10yo, 13.1H and we had no idea of her actual level of training because she was...

    This pony came through the Marshall Auction a few years ago. She ended up in a home of COMPLETE beginners and was being neglected, but not outright abused. I'm actually suprised she did not kill them...

    Last year for my Birthday, my wonderful husband bailed this TWH mare for me. We picked her up directly from Rotz's lot (largest kill pen on the East Coast) and she was already tagged to ship. When we...

    I am 100% a mare person. This is my take on it:

    Geldings give 50%, 100% of the time.

    Mares give 100%, 50% of the time.

    Of course, there is always the exception to the rule. However, I do...

    Actually, what you are describing is more kicking out that even crow hopping. A horse can get some serious air crow hopping and usually all four feet are off the ground. The hind legs need to come...

    Paris was a crow hop and Anky was more of a true buck. When legs start coming above their head, that is a buck. A crow hop is more of a rounded back.

    Arena Footing - Suggestions

    We are just finishing up the base of our new ring. When our old one was put in about 10 years ago, everything was so straight forward! We didn't have 100 types of footing to pick from.

    I have a rule no flip flops in the barn or around the horses - one of our boarders felt that was a stupid rule and had a meltdown.

    It comes down to this - a mare will give 100%, 50% of the time. A...
