    In general, we back them in the 3 year old summer, then turn them back out. We'll start flat work in the winter and begin jumping in the spring of their 4 yo year. Circumstances, actual birthdate,...

    Yep, you. You're clinching with your lower leg because you're concerned about his jump. As previous post said, fix your position and balance, don't clinch. Confirmation of inadequate balance is...

    In my world, selling a foal in the US is nearly impossible. Some breeders are successful, but I suspect they have a developed/captured market.

    We're most successful selling ours as backed 4...

    Isn't it wonderful to have options? Whichever you choose, enjoy!

    I live in Ashland, KY, and can comment on Charleston, WV. Charleston is about 3 hours equidistant from the Virginia Horse Park...

    Welcome to Ashland! Lots of horses, lots of places/ways to ride - few if any of them eventing. To the best of my knowledge, I'm the only event connection on the Kentucky side of the river. We keep...

    We've done it once. Please do not generalize my experience to others, but here's what occurred for us:

    Because of Consul's age, you'll have to use frozen so make sure your mare is suitable. That...

    Fun seeing these old posts resurrected, and realizing the changes that time brings to all of us. Megan now has an indoor, and Jenn is building one!

    NMB, but I'll comment anyway.

    Lucinda is awesome, both as a rider and as a coach. If you want the experience of riding with a legend, attend a clinic with her or Jimmy Wofford or Mary King or...

    There are a plenitude of UL prospects in North America, but our sheer size and lack of organization is a major detriment. Both NA and Europe (as well as Australia and NZ) have more quality horses...

    We're in the same boat at about 8 weeks. Could not train foal to take milk replacer, but he was eating hay/drinking already when the mare went down. We gave him free choice alfalfa and individual...

    I love Louisville (was born there), co-own a farm north of Lexington, and live in the eastern part of Kentucky. Highly recommended. The horse community, strongly eventing oriented, follows I-71...

    I generally prefer farmowner's plus an umbrella liability policy rather than equine specific. If with the same agent/company as the farmowner's, it's pretty cheap (about $300 for $1MM on the...

    Best venue in the country, possibly the world (admittedly, I'm biased as a native born Kentuckian). Jump Start is a top 10 horse trial in the nation, and we usually move several horses up there...

    Identify a professional you believe and trust. Invest in a month's evaluation.

    I've found that many really wonderful horses need a certain ride, and when they don't get it they regress, slowly at...

    I don't recommend wire at all for babies. Take your lead from the Kentucky thoroughbred farms where the babies can be 7 figures in values.

    Fear is a normal response by an adult; it means you recognize the risks instead of ignoring them.

    Management of fear is also an adult response. I WILL NOT let fear or bullying dictate what I will...

    As breeders, trainers, and young horse developers, we price our horses fairly to start with and expect to get our asking price. We're more likely to go UP than down - our horses are actively...
