    I have only used Rare Things in Creede, Colorado- I've had them make bracelets, a hat band, and a bolo tie using tail hair from my deceased horses.

    I expect, given the dude ranch setting, that your students are only there for a set period, so it isn't like you will have them for more than a few sessions? Unless the lesson program is targeted at...

    My mare is allergic to flies, so yes she has a fly rug aka fly sheet on this side of the pond every summer. The Saxon worked well, truth to tell I just buy whatever is on sale at the end of the...

    Well, it looks like you can get more than two fingers between thighs and base of pommel, but not too bad. There is nothing worse than breaking in a new saddle. Oil it a lot, and as was suggested,...

    Oh, there's nothing new about this, I was amazed to enter the world of Tall Horses in transitioning to hunters in college after growing up riding western. That said, I converted my 15.2 western...

    I think in your case the only thing I might consider, and Gumtree could probably weigh in better than me, whether racing over fences would be a consideration, recognizing that in Europe you are...

    I've hunted with the Woodbrook pack in Red Rock country, they are a very friendly bunch and you'll have fun. Yes, go and car follow, hire a made hunter for your first outings, and see what...

    Just passing through to say your screen name coupled with the subject line was good for a chuckle.

    FatDinah yes, Back Country Horsemen is a good place to start, I know the folks at the chapter in St. George as well as Kanab (I belong to the Mt. Ridge chapter myself, in the SL Valley). You might...

    Very rarely, because no good deed goes unpunished. I do 'carpool' for things like the annual Pony Express reride, and an upcoming trip to Canyon de Chelly, but otherwise, only now and then if I...

    We have a second home, five acres in Hurricane, 30 minutes from Zion. When we were looking, I saw some attractive possibilities in Apple Valley except that it was a little too 'high' for us...

    If she's yours, and she was well behaved for you before she had her 6 year vacation, I can't imagine it won't come back soon with your simply handling her as you did before. Horses don't forget. In...

    That is my vet's point of view, since he practices both western and eastern, he sees it as just more tools in the tool box.

    I am lucky to have good travelers, so I don't do anything special, just load 'em and go. They travel with hay in front of them and I've learned over the years that they will rarely drink, even on an...

    Well I know who not to go to for veterinary advice. I'll agree that animal communicators are bogus, but you clearly have no idea as to the physiology of paralysis. Since you missed the detail...

    Well, for me, seeing is believing. Restoring function to a paralyzed tail worked for my horse. Restoring, permanently, nonfuctioning neural pathways if that's the right term. He had very periodic...

    I tried a chiropractor on myself and found it interesting, but not interesting enough to explore further for me or my horse. However, I'm sold on acupuncture, since some years back I tried it for a...

    Quarter horses are pretty much warmbloods, I have joked that I should market mine as 'Texas warmblood' and fetch more for them than they would bring as mere quarter horses.

    My point is that bad things can and do happen to horses every day. Racing breakdowns are horrible, but frankly,...
