    Go to www.actha.us and look at the obstacles page. You might not be able to go out on the trail, but work through some of these and it will give a break to you both.

    So I had a few minutes and watched the whole thing in real time.

    Don't know what happened at 1:44, that was not nice. However, he didn't do it again so hard to tell what the context was.

    One last tidbit... Boggs the younger got set down by USEF in the last year or so for using cocaine on a halter horse. I swear I had an 80s flashback when I read that. Quite honestly, I fault the...

    Chiming in again with the historical (aka old fart) perspective: People have been continually complaining to AHA for the last 30 years. That's how they've managed to get it cleaned up to this point....

    A little late to the party, but here goes. I'm going to play the old fart card. I had the misfortune of seeing many an Arabian halter class in the 1980s, the period of really awful horse abuse *in...

    I am a woman and thought Schlese was the most uncomfortable saddle I've ever sat in.

    Saddle buying... not for the faint of heart!
  7. Who is David Schrager and why was he yelling at the judge?

    https://www.usef.org/documents/rules/HearingCommittee/2015/JuneRulings.pdf

    Inquiring minds and all that. He must not ride - no record on centerline scores.

    There must be a story in there...

    You are welcome. It was tempting not to post about today because everything has been smooth sailing to this point. However, I'm trying to keep this thread as honest as I can make it so.... the truth...

    Your essay and pictures took me right back to my youth - oh those many years ago! - when riding was the thing, much more so than competing. Very precious time in my life and I hope your daughter will...

    Way back in the day I had a half Arab palomino gelding who had a bit of a spook, but I managed to show him and do competitive trail riding with him. His dam was a grade palomino who was bred to at...

    Just like saying Beetlejuice 3 times say melanoma and vaccine and here I am. LOL! Just want to point out that what your vet is suggesting is the autologous (sp?) Vaccine which is different than...

    I got this recipe from COTH, so it's probably repeated in link above, but here goes: equal parts desitin, triple antibiotic cream, athletes foot cream, and cortisone cream. Generic for each is fine ....

    I saw a guy today with a lack of good tupe - it looked like he had a mop on his head.

    OK just to clarify - you've never given her Ulcergard, Gastrgard, ranitidine, or any of those kind of drugs to treat ulcers, just the supplement?

    My Childeric is the only saddle of 25 or so that fit my Arab. As a local fitter said, he has the shoulders of a TB (big) and the back of an Arab (short). Someone told me they are built on a jumping...

    My horse doesn't like his nose messed with at all - even a quick wipe with a damp cloth after a ride is a tough sell. However, hold a brush or your hand up to his forehead and he will rub on that all...
