    I have to haul for every ride, so tend to ride late on weeknights.
    I ride Tues and Thurs nights after work - leave the house by 6:15 and...

    My horse and I used to be reiners. Over time, rather than getting easier for non pro me, he became more and more a pro ride until I burned out on it last fall. I decided to take some dressage lessons...

    5 was still not our year - he was still frequently pretty sure that he got a vote in what we were doing when. But 6 has turned out to be delightful. :)

    Same here except it's been, "wow, are those ants or termites?" "Moisture ants and rebuilding the south facing exterior wall for $10k."

    But hey, it's almost done and WE ARE NEVER MOVING.

    And...

    Exactly. Mine is out 24/7 in a large paddock with consistent turnout to pasture when the weather is good (i.e. ground is not too wet - this is the PNW after all). In the winter if I haven't ridden in...

    We have completely combined finances (married 11 years this week) - it helps that we make pretty equal amounts of money (although I earn about 15% more).

    We each contribute the same % of our...

    When we were doing reining, my trainer would totally get on if it was "one of those days". In fact, because her timing was better than mine, she preferred to get on and fix it fast rather than...

    ive got the narrow gauge Fairfax (22") - my QH has a round barrel with narrow shoulders. My Fairfax mono flap saddle has full shoulder gussets, which help keep the saddle back, but the real key was...

    Which bit should I try next?

    When I decided to try dressage with my QH last fall I read some threads on COTH and then went to the local tack and bought an inexpensive oval mouth loose ring snaffle.

    Totally true. My instructor put my stirrups up a hole about 8 weeks ago and it's de all the difference in my ability to start learning to effectively sit the trot.

    I anted up for the Fairfax girth this spring and 4 months in I think it was worth the $$$. Just my opinion.

    It's not what you want to hear, but my experience is that fireworks directly overhead (especially the first time) are far scarier to every horse I've owned than fireworks in the distance. I know this...

    We're not showing yet, so maybe we don't count, but I started doing dressage with my QH reiner in December. We are having a lot of fun and it's exposing all the gaps in my riding skills. We're...

    Y'all are making me really really glad that I have a very very short pixie cut and I don't have to mess with any of this. I'm never growing my hair out again...

    As a recent convert from reining to dressage I dutifully bought full seats and loved them. Then I finally got my own saddle and found that the grippy calf leather seat and full seats is enough to...

    My somewhat easy keeping QH gets a pint of TC Sr and a multi vitamin rather than a ration balancer. He just doesn't need the calories.

    I said an hour. By the time we warm up, work, and cool down I'm rarely in the saddle for less than that. Even the days that we trail ride the minimum is an hour and frequently we're out 2-3 hours.

    It is hot and humid, but as a native Minnestan it's really not that bad.

    I had a lesson Friday afternoon and we both did fine. Then I rode at 9 am the last 2 days before it hit 80. I hosed him...

    Huh. I wonder if that's a discipline thing. At least in all the western barns I've ridden at the farrier shows up, checks the board, pulls out the horse(s) on that day's list, puts them in the...

    Slightly off topic. When y'all say "hold the horse" are you literally holding the horse rather than tying or cross tying it? My farriers have always either tied to a rail (before I had cross ties) or...

    My farrier is also hard to schedule with (or his wife is, actually) and we've come to an agreement that if I can't be there, he will get me horse out and do him without me. I wouldn't make that...

    That is a seriously cute mule. If I was in GA I'd be super tempted.

    The trainer I ride with has multiple big horses in their late teens and early to mid-20s still going strong. One is showing level 2 and pony club stuff with her teen leaser and doing very well.

    I...

    My little mule (who I got from a COTHer) is a geat companion. She has her own paddock and stall but does go out on pasture with my QH gelding. They get along well and she is very good at defending...

    It took me 3 months and 23 saddles to find one that we both liked. In that time I found a number that got JD, but I didn't like most of them for me.
