No, you don't. But you will have to pay an extra fee.
I leased a horse for a weekend at Ocala this spring. When I went to the office to do her paperwork, I had to pay an additional fee because...
Thanks, amanda and supershorty.
SS - did Nikki have the bowed tendon while she was showing in the conformation hunters?
I got a new mare and am considering the division for her. She has a...
Bummer. Too bad they couldn't reschedule for early fall. I bet it would be beautiful there with the leaves changing color.
That is such an awesome idea!
I just dropped off a pair of too-small, mocha-colored Ariat breeches at Goodwill this weekend. I figured someone might use them in a Halloween costume.
And such a...
Me neither. I was all 'oh geez, another sappy story'. Felt very stupid and humbled after I read it, as I wiped away my tears.

I prefer the velcro for one reason....after I'm done riding, I can undo the velcro and fold the bottom of the breeches up. It helps me cool off in the summer.
I would work that angle through your current barn. Fig's suggestion is a good one, You can also mention to your trainer that you're interested in hacking - maybe he or she knows someone who has a...
Since you're relatively new to posting on COTH, I'll explain what's happening.
You can edit or delete your posts. But you can't edit or delete other people's posts. The people above are quoting...
I stick to very conservative colors (navy and black) and have only left the hunter ring once.
But, yowee, I would leave hunterland for that dreamsicle!!!!!! Love it on the grey horse. And that...
Because ears are funny-looking.
A clinician told me this once and it helped me.
The lead change has three steps. They are, in this order...
1. SLOW DOWN!
2. Move the horse's shoulders to the outside.
3. Apply the aids....
Thanks to those who've already posted links.
I keep seeing all these ads for equestrian communities in COTH. It sounds heavenly - but wondering what it's really like.
Anyone live in an equestrian community? Care to share?
For those of you suggesting spanx or a spanx-like alternative, the OP says it will be 95 degrees.
Aren't you concerned with spontaneous combustion?
OP, since it's a schooling show and you're...
