    THANK you, a barn with air!!!! Center aisle barns just don't make much sense here with the walls closed in, it's like building an oven for yourself. I have done something similar (and even simpler...

    Oh, I totally agree -- and that is why my horses will never go above Prelim. Even still, bad things can happen at any time. That is the element of risk involved in having a horse doing anything,...

    Depends on the soil, but your best bet if you can afford it is to pull the mats, put in some screenings, tamp them down, and then replace mats. I'll do this in my xties eventually, but for now,...

    Ah BFNE, I think we could share some brain cells (although I hope you don't have my messed up ones, they suck)! I actually came on here pondering deleting my last post because sometimes the ADHD...

    AND who take the time to come to the 7 am volunteer briefing just to say thank you to the whole group at once.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. I came to eventing for the XC (duh) but I...

    Again, I am a diehard LF person and the incredible lessons in horsemanship it teaches (every year at the 3DE's I help run, that is the #1 surprised and thrilled feedback we get).

    I'm no personal...

    I first acknowledge that I am a horrible enabler sometimes, but I also am cautious and use common sense. :D

    That said, I decided that sitting on my semi-retired heart horse bareback at a walk was...

    Oops, that will teach me to read the thread first! Sorry -- but that makes complete since if those were your only choices and the straight load had mangers. My first trailer did, they are truly...

    ROFLMAO -- you might as well as "is it better to be atheist, christian or buddhist??"

    In the big picture, a large part of the choice is personal preference, which is based on past experience. ...

    Oh good idea to put the board on the top for a sturdier perimeter!

    As far as power, that's why I use a DC charger and just put the deep cycle battery on the charger once a month or so. ...

    Done it. In May 2011. Keep monitoring as you go -- the bones do heal relatively quickly (of course, depending on the degree of damage), I only had to be NWB for about a week. I did PT and all...

    Well, if you are camping out of your trailer, any charger that runs off a deep cycle battery (or any DC power source) is portable! That's what my home charger is. Of course, no one wants to carry...

    I generally agree and love it as well, I have it up too. However, even Horseguard will tell you that electric tape is not recommended alone as a perimeter fence. And if you have a horse who doesn't...

    I'm your "neighbour" in Area II and heck no, it's definitely not a business! Without volunteers and, for big events, sponsors, not a single horse trial would happen. Organizers giggle with ecstasy...

    Thanks for this link, Reed, and the reminder, I had forgotten that data was up there and I'm looking forward to reviewing it!

    Yep, I competed my older horse nearly his entire career in our all purpose (gasp! but they truly are not all created equal) and then close contact saddle. As long as it fits you and your horse and...

    My philosophy on hoof management: if it ain't broke, don't mess with it! No, there is no rule requiring shoes, just one forbidding hoof boots.

    I've found slipping very much depends on the horse....

    No way. As I've stated in an earlier thread, I've taken 100% non-horsey people to Rolex on SJ day and they LOVED it because the suspense of the SJ moves quickly and is all contained in one area. It...
