    Keeping horses at home is wonderful, but when you don't have adequate room to ride in decent footing, it can really sloooooowwwwww down your progress. If you don't want to haul out, consider boarding...

    Sound, healthy horses don't typically trip a lot just because they're not looking straight ahead, or while running on even ground. Both of you would likely be safer if you had (from perhaps another...

    If it made you unhappy to sit in the bleachers with your lunch, think how unhappy it would have made the table "owner" (who paid $$$$ to have that table available for the season, most likely) show up...

    Hind shoes may help. It's hard to push if your feet hurt.

    Agree with getting his hocks checked (and overall exam)... again... sore often = resistant to going forward. Bucking is a way to say it...

    I'm always on the side of ruling out pain, training issues, etc., but sometimes horses just don't fit in certain jobs.

    I'm never going to label one "dirty" because it's not in their nature (or...

    My brother pulls a four horse LQ all across the country with a Dodge 2500 diesel. Your truck should have no problem with it. Be aware, though - that size trailer is not great for tight places and...

    The third "billet" - does it have a buckle? If so, it's designed to hold the flap down. Buckles over your girth.

    What's the space between the two felt dots at the front of the panels measure?

    I would guess this is a part-lease, as in: other riders are also paying the same to lease the horse (with a limited number of riders per horse, of course). Give them a call and ask for clarification.

    Not unusual to have no course walk over low/simple courses, especially at smaller shows.
