    crazyguineapiglady

    I think that you have some pretty nihilistic views there. Saying farmers are in it for the money is like saying horse people are in it for the money. The farmers I work with...

    I can still give you a little insight into some of the questions you asked even though I don't live on farm currently. Farm size is highly variable in the midwest so I can't give you a great answer...

    Hey Guys!

    I'm always so excited to hear non-farm individuals try and learn more about the US agriculture system, which is a leader in both production and animal welfare standards. As a...

    Northstar is currently the competitive A Circuit barn in the area and there's a lot of great people there. Otherwise, you could always check out W.E.C. It is primarily dressage abd eventers but there...

    I rode with him about four years ago in a 3' foot clinic class. We were in a huge outdoor with lots of really neat jumps so we didn't really do anything too different but the clinic had more of a...

    I rode in a clinic a few years ago with him and it was a really great experience. we did a good amount of flat and jumping. The clinic lasted a full two hours if I remember correctly. He's a great...

    I don't like the low rise breeches or the eurocut breeches-I think they pucker too much with wear and look a little funny.

    Love the classic look with the technical edge and have a few coats with...

    Yeah, but I think most people (as many people in this thread are demonstrating) see a problem in your daughter cross entering. I also think the parents of the kids who can't do w/t would think its a...

    I have to say, I am very excited for the recent "calling out" of the hunter industry. I have heard several influential horseman, including George, speak against the faults of the en vogue hunter...

    I have the same problem with my slab sided mare, but I only experience it with my ergonomic girth. So, I don't think I'd recommend one. In my experience the ergonomic girths tend to be a little...

    Try the slim coats. Counter intuitive, I know, but for tall riders that aren't thin as a rail or have a ton of extra of weight in the middle, they work out really well. That way you can go up in size...

    I didn't have a lot of luck with the Wilkers (They seemed to get smaller in the wash), and the internationals will most likeley be a little small for what you are doing.

    I have several of the...

    Wow. just wow. If you can't afford to replace your boots in case of emergency, you shouldn't have bought them... as Susie Orman would say "You CAN'T afford it!"

    I'm tall, but with that height comes some extra weight! I feel bad lugging my 170lb self onto a horse from the ground, and almost always use a block. I do teach my horses to stand for mounting on the...

    I think that is a pretty insightful point. We are paying the Trainers/Barn Owners for a service, it's their job to keep their customers happy.

    Oh, I don't think you owe them a 30 days notice. I am very hesitant to sign a contract that requires me to give 30 days notice. You're putting your horse at risk by having them at a place that knows...

    I would try ulcers, and a few months of working with a pro that deals with a lot of OTTBS. Weight and temperment-wise, I haven't had luck with strategy (even though it's known for calming horses) and...

    I live way up north and if my horse is going to have an easy winter I usually pull shoes. I think it really helps the foot heal and strengthen, I find if I have shoes on for a long time the nail...

    Personally I would go for a second opinion and possibly a second ultrasound before I did an MRI. Find a really good lameness expert and spend your money on that, I just can't see an MRI paying off.

    An open mouth should definitely be penalized in the hunters. I would think flapping lip would be too but to a lesser degree. Hunters is all about asthetics when push comes to shove and in the...
