    I have been at a barn where a known problem boarder arrived. **I** knew for certain that New Boarder was a problem and gave the barn owners a heads up and they ignored me. Sadly, I was right. Hay...

    I've kept up with riding the fuzzy pony bareback. At a walk. In the deep snow. And I managed to stay on when the poor pony's feet finally broke through to the ground, pitching her forward onto her...

    Only hugs from here. You did the hardest thing, the right thing and relieved him of a life of pain.
  4. I concur that if you've done most of your riding...

    I concur that if you've done most of your riding in the ring you'll want to spend some time out of there before hunting. Riding up and down hills and through or over obstacles is a different set of...

    You've already taken the most important first step, which is contacting the hunt nearest you. Each hunt is different. Some hunts have many members, and may have a well established process for...

    My pony is at a co-op barn and there is no one on site (that will change in a few months, but now, no one). We put the horses in on Monday night with extra hay bags and extra water buckets, knowing...

    Collegialequestrian sums it up well. I've only hired from Hunter's Rest, but I would guess that most who hire out their horses would prefer that you ride in their tack to ensure that the saddle fits...

    I agree that a sturdier leather is best for hunting to hold up to the bumps & scratches you'll encounter there. And what are often sold as dress boots are really meant for the dressage ring, so they...

    At a hunter pace this fall there was a youngster of about 7-8 being ponied by mom. The pony still managed to dump the kid & run off down the trail where my partner & I with the pair behind us...

    I had a portable compressor. It died after inflating one tire. I do think I'll replace it because it's a good thing to have in the trailer. We ended up buying a compressor to have at the barn, as...

    Beowulf: I have a friend who lives in Groton who is not on this forum. If you're interested, PM me and I can put you guys in touch. She's ridden with Old North Bridge and with Wentworth.

    Full chaps are even better than full seat breeches :)
    Any advice I might give has already been pretty much covered. I have found it helpful to think about steering through a skid with your...

    Where are you in MA? I've been out with Tanheath Hunt from CT, and their fixtures are not too far if you're south of Worcester.
    I attended the New England Hunts hunter trials this past fall and...

    If the difference in cost is only $1,000, go for the side ramp. As an earlier poster said,if you get the side ramp and never use it that's better than not getting it and wishing that you had one....

    My previous horse had a monster buck and tossed me many times. I'm happy now to ride a pony who has a much more rideable buck :) :

    I've asked our barn owners to allow us to use the heater for our 100 gallon outdoor tank and they have refused due to the cost. Unfortunately where I live the cost/KW hour is vastly higher than...

    My barn has them. We just unplug them during the day when horses are out. The barn is generally warm enough that the buckets only get a little bit of ice during the day. This week might be...

    Just my 2 cents...sounds as though this boarder needs to sell or lease Chaz and NOT get another horse. She has confidence issues, she has big medical bills and she doesn't get out to the barn. Or...

    Don't wait any longer to get started. I tell everyone that getting a trailer changed my equine life. I've made many new friends and done loads of fun stuff I couldn't do before.
    If there is a...

    I'm sorry this has happened to you (and to your BIL). It's always the few rotten apples that ruin it for everyone. Of course the best case is always when the good hunters find out who the bad guys...

    I have a Shires tweed coat and I love it. I'm sure it will hold up for as long as he can fit into it, and then you can sell it on to another family. Glad you found one.

    My sister lived in that area for quite a while (Santa Rosa). Real estate is extraordinarily expense, and commuting times are long. Are you wedded to owning property? You might be better off...

    I have to admit when I read the title of your post I was picturing a new "reality" show on Discovery or A & E. I'm sorry the reality was not as light & entertaining as that. It stinks to have to...

    Thank you everyone! Looks like Trojan is out of stock for the winter but I'll start looking around here. I'll also check with my relatives who are dairy farmers, they might have a local lead for me.
