    Kick pads?

    My mare is usually pretty easygoing, but she has a habit of kicking her wall when she's cranky. She kicks enough that she loses a back shoe once a month or so. it's not excessive or particularly...

    You should try the original version - they come up pretty high. I could see that the lower-cut Angelfish might be problematic!

    I love my sperry's around the barn. Note that I said "around the barn." I go to the barn in them, gather all my stuff in them, and get everything arranged at the crossties in them. Then on go my...

    Not an ad, as the OP doesn't work for SmartPak as far as I know. Just a PSA - like any time anyone else shares a sale or a good deal or a great promo code that they've found!

    I have DOZENS of embroidered baby pads. DOZENS. Like, as in more than one dozen. More than two dozen, probably. Maybe 50 pads stacked in the tack closet? I've accumulated a lot of them over the 23...

    I wouldn't expect the sort of horse the OP describes to have a winning record. A good solid, move-up sort of citizen ridden by a bunch of people in a big trainer's program? I wouldn't expect that...

    Did you guys really look at those photos? I saw no groundrails at all, and the aforementioned pole with holes drilled in it and flowers stuck in it seemed not to be a ground rail either, but rather...

    Am I the only idiot who assumed that "clothes," by their very nature of being "clothing," blocked the sun?

    This is new to me.

    I think the mid rise Trophy Hunters are about the most flattering breeches that exist, especially if you're a little curvy (fluffy?). I bought three pairs in a 36 when I started back riding.

    Ride in breeches, not jeans.

    Other than that, just ride in the thing and take good care of it. Don't over condition it. Ride in it in the rain (just clean it right after). Sweat in it. USE it.

    It's not specifically excluded. Not mentioned at all one way or the other.

    Bummer. I thought maybe it would qualify as "lameness."
  14. Tie back surgery covered under major medical?

    Has anyone had experience getting tie back surgery covered under major medical?

    Panning for Gold does sound quarter horsey to me. It sounds like a palomino QH.

    Riffles.

    The ridges in a gold panning pan or a shaker table or a sluice box that separate the gold from the other material.

    There are lots of eq divisions used as warm ups. No one goes in them twice with two different horses. No one.

    No confusion - just common sense.

    (Just to clarify - of course I mean no one goes...

    Yeah, but this is a trainer. Trainer should know it's not acceptable, no matter what the rules do or do not say...

    Seriously? You would let BNJunior show in the eq finals on as many horses as she would like? That wouldn't make a difference?

    Any time there's only a size or two left of something aren't they, by definition, the oddball sizes?

    If you've ridden for 18 years, wouldn't you know that no one could answer your question with the information given?

    Choo choo.

    If you have a horse who can jump a course of 6' fences (and has his changes, no less!) why do you need to ask if it can do the Grand Prixs? Isn't the answer yes, of course?

    If it's not against the rules, then I suppose it's not against the rules.

    Pretty asinine thing to allow, though. One would think common sense would prevail, but if USEF rules don't trump VHSA...

    As always, COTH to the rescue. Eskies purchased and on their way. I have enough trouble already with sand in boots and the heat.

    Thanks for the advice, peeps!
