  1. Thanks guys. I promise not all of us hunter...

    Thanks guys. I promise not all of us hunter chicks are total princesses!!! For old time's sake, here's a photo of my last boy which I took when we managed champion, somehow, diving six hours from...
  2. I did just shoot an email to a family friend who...

    I did just shoot an email to a family friend who has a polo farm and was always trying to get me out to play. I think exercising 6 polo ponies at a time is sufficiently different from what I used to...

    I suppose the whole concept of having trouble just going out and hacking a horse on the weekend upsetting me is coming off wrong. It has nothing to do with the quality of the horses or missing day...

    Uh, I hope that made YOU feel better? I'm not going to defend how grateful I am to have had the opportunities I have had in my life, and I think it's pretty clear that's not what I meant.

    As for...

    Thanks guys. I really am trying to be smart here. My first order of business was making sure my older horse who I had planned on retiring myself was taken care of for the remainder of his lifetime....
  6. Please don't get me wrong. I can't afford any...

    Please don't get me wrong. I can't afford any horses, at all, on any level right now. I can't afford a farrier bill for the month even on a free lease. I don't know what it says about me that just...
  7. Getting over it. As best as I can, until some unknown time. Any help?

    I haven't been on COTH in ages, and haven't swung a leg over a horse in 9 months now. I finally moved all my things out of the barn last week, and have an appointment with the consignment lady to...
  8. Has anyone seen GP shadbellies on sale?

    I am without shadbelly and in desperate need! My last RJ disappointed me, so I was hoping the shopping divas at COTH would have had an ear to the ground and be able to point me in the right...

    I thought I would pop in with a couple tips- I have taken a hunter to a dressage show before and know exactly how you feel, haha. I didn't have the finances to buy the right tack to look the part...

    Also, wanted to mention that my parents payed low-mid 6 figures each in legal bills and my father was still responsible for her fees.

    So the BO used the tractor to get the trailer on blocks and it took me literally less than 10 minutes to replace the jack with a higher quality one from tractor supply, even though it was bent and...

    My parents went through one of the messiest divorces the mediator, lawyer, therapists, etc had ever seen. My father still had to pay my mother's legal fees and I think it was well worth it. Believe...

    Honey, I hate to be the one to tell you this, but I really don't think it is to his best advantage to keep treating this lameness. If he is comfortable in the pasture, then let him be a pasture pet....

    I did notice that my new TS breeches were a different fabric than my older ones. Is this a permanent thing?

    Thank you everyone for the assistance!!!

    I saw some tuff rider breeches that came in...
  15. Knee Patch, Side Zip, Colored Schooling Breeches

    Do they exist? I just can't bring myself to go with a front zip, and my TS cotton breeches are wearing out quickly with daily riding. Any suggestions? Should I just give up on the colors and go with...

    Hello everyone- I am wondering if there are any updates on the ship in situation now that we are closer to the season. Anything new? Thanks!!

    I now have in my possession one replacement jack for the aforementioned trailer. I am hoping that this is as easy as the gentleman who helped me at the auto parts store last weekend would lead me to...
  18. I bought a hydraulic bottle jack while I was at...

    I bought a hydraulic bottle jack while I was at the horse show and planned to use it in lieu of the trailer jack, but of course what had worked perfectly in the light of day would not move when I...
  19. My jack is broken and the trailer is in the dirt. Thanks COTH, EASY FIX

    So the jack on my trailer is completely done for. Circa midnight after a 5 hour drive home and a long weekend, I realized that the car jack I purchased to get the trailer off the truck really was not...
  20. Very interesting information, everyone. Thanks!...

    Very interesting information, everyone. Thanks! Looks like shipping in is a possibility but definitely not something to hinge plans on.
  21. Was it technically not allowed last year as well?...

    Was it technically not allowed last year as well? I don't know if the rule about no day trailer parking is like the one about loose dogs- where as long as you aren't bothering anyone, no one really...
  22. Sorry, fixed!!

    Sorry, fixed!!
  23. WEF Off Grounds Boarding or Place to "Ship In"

    I have an opportunity to work as a sales rep at WEF this winter, and am trying to figure out whether or not I could do it financially.

    Ideally, I would board wherever and then show off my...

    Y'all I am so glad I am not the lone crazy person here who has a love/hate relationship with these wraps. As for not washing them, that's a solution for sure but... no freaking way. I was already a...
  25. Has anyone had T-Sport wraps hold up? Alternative?

    I really love these wraps when they are new. I try to care for them exactly as instructed, but being in a barn, inevitably there will be a wrinkle in the wrap during the drying and I lost a chunk of...
