    My honest confession here is that even schooling at home alone, I wear breeches, tall boots or paddocks with matching color 1/2 chaps, collared shirt tucked in with a belt, and a hairnet if my hair...

    Every day you wake up is a gift and an opportunity. You can enjoy the good things in your life, offload what drags you down, make decisions to solve your problems, or just walk away and start over. ...

    Have always had great service from Dover and am a loyal customer, and I order a lot - usually at least once a month. I have their CC to get the $4.95 shipping and usually get my order within a...

    I've been growing frustrated with the constant website updates that make it harder and harder to change the contents and shipping dates of my SmartPaks. I did send an email to them to that effect. ...

    Had one and loved it, had to sell it because it did not fit my horse.

    I think your method also assists with aeration - the layers of hay help keep air pockets in the pile.

    The morning I obviously couldn't tell the difference between the feel of a hat or helmet on my my head. I was so proud of myself for a great ride, all alone in the barn on a spooky horse. Finished...

    The anti-pony tone of one poster makes no sense to me at all. We're not all Margie Engle and Debbie MacDonald. In general, the under 5' average AA on a big moving warm-blood is probably a little...

    Ditto! And on really hot summer days I've been known to pull off said skimpy jammies and dive in the pool after cleaning stalls. If there were a camera on me, whoever is watching would be ripping...

    Great news, and I love my smaller horses and large ponies. But it is a double edged sword. The the 'bigger is better' philosophy of the last decade has helped make smaller horses and ponies more...

    My old trainer uses it at her barn and the horses look amazing on it.

    Rico goes in a French Link Eggbutt snaffle. He likes a steady contact, and the loose ring had too much movement for him, but the D and full cheeks are too big for his face. Love his bit, he's never...

    I have the opposite problem - I can't not function without making plans and decisions. I reserve the right to change my mind if the decision seems to be the wrong one, or the plans don't come...

    Deep color bodies with dark points - or rich copper chestnuts with chrome all the way for me.

    I drool over buckskins. Someday.
    Am a magnet for chestnuts with chrome, but don't like bald faces....

    I'm FB friends with Inky's previous owner.
    Rico came off the track, so no contact there.
    Travis came to me as a 2 year old owner surrender.
    First pony came from a bat$hit crazy person - no...

    Inky is Inclination (hunter, pleasure)
    Rico is Razzaro (hunter, pleasure, dressage)
    Travis was Trevelyan (show and reg name) (hunter, eventing, dressage)

    I like one word names that at least...

    I would be disappointed but not surprised or angry. Television coverage of Equestrian is abysmal anyway.

    It makes financial sense to drop them. The cost/benefit is upside down to the host city...

    If you do find the magical secret, please share. Otherwise, the only answer is to have a dedicated wardrobe for the barn and throw it in the washer every week to keep it from standing up on its own...

    OP, I feel your pain. I have to preserve my 2 ac. of pasture, and the rain in MD has been ridiculous this year. My 50x120 sacrifice area, which is nicely sloped and usually stays quite dry is a...

    I'd go with Option A. Your circumstances have changed, you need to sell the horse, and that is that. If trainer and friend really wants the horse that badly, they can make you an offer for it. ...

    Can you take in a retiree for minimal board? That's what I did and its worked out beautifully. I charge enough to cover her feed/hay/bedding, so I have a nice little companion horse who is not on...

    I was the kid who didn't exist for her parents. I over compensated by being too attentive to mine, thinking that made me a good parent. DD would probably have gotten much more out of her lessons...

    Happy to hear that, because I never got a call back from the shelter, and I don't seem to be able to post on the FB page either.

    I have a few low pile fleece tops that seem to do OK in the barn, but fleece gloves are a disaster, and I still prefer my old fashioned sweatshirts with a vest the most. Cotton shirt under the...
