    Thanks for volunteering! I bet you'll have a great time. I started off volunteering too, and the sport sucked me in. I'm on the other side of the country, so no National Championships for me, but...

    "He has 0 study habits and sports have only been his thing."

    This stands out to me. As an employee of a sadly looked down upon "Community College" why would you spend so much money on a student...

    I had a similar issue (though in a straight load). I bought an extra pad and moved pads around and up, which helped. I put on a tail wrap with an extra layer of fleece underneath, and also put some...

    They are wonderful, great selection of products. I've ordered a bit too much though: I was at home the last time the overnight delivery driver came by, he said "you must have many horses because I...

    I love my Kerrit's. They wear like iron, keep their shape, stay nice in cool in 95 degree weather. I like the Kerrit's flow rise riding tight, but the other styles look similar. And I splurged and...

    I got mine at the local automotive shop, but if you do a search just for "battery jump starter" you'll find many with different amps, accessories etc. When I saw my first one at an endurance ride...

    Glad it got you home! My trailer was randomly draining my truck battery (it had a hidden short). Not every drive, it was so frustrating! I did buy a battery jump starter, which wouldn't work if your...

    This is always a concern with a boot with gaitors, but a good opportunity for some desensitizing! I would certainly train for this ahead of time in a controlled environment. I tested it in an arena...

    At a mine local to me, Empire Mine (a hard rock gold mine), they used mules. They have some interesting signage with similar photos. Once the mules went down, they never came back up. It does say...

    I don't think it's a good idea, especially with how you explain the area has changed. Maybe a cash prize unless to a 4-H home if they prefer the heifer?

    But it did remind me of a favorite memory: ...

    I don't have a solar kit, I know of at least a few tree-covered campgrounds I go to that finding a strong source for hours to recharge might be hard. I do have a truck battery jumpstarter, that I can...

    oh, the awful saddle hunt, I'm sorry! I always thought I wanted an endurance style saddle. I had an independent saddle fitter come out, we tried probably 25 saddles that day. When she suggested a...

    I love Durasole, but boot my horse for longer rides. He lives in a soft pasture that the Barn Owner does not want any gravel in. It looks pretty but doesn't toughen hooves! His feet are the best they...

    I do this all the time, the neighbors compliment my horse, I compliment their dogs, it's fun! Luckily most of the roads are quiet or have larger shoulder space. My favorite story is when I walked my...

    I loved my Marmot Precip, waterproof, athletic (competed a wet 50-mile endurance ride in it!). Sadly after 4 years of hard use it has lost waterproofing. I've re-proofed it with the recommended...

    I don't know if this will help much, as it isn't a good story. My first horse (so I was clueless, surrounded by those who knew more, but still) an 11-year-old Arab gelding, presented with heavy...

    Do you live anywhere near an Apple Store? You can make an appointment and they're very helpful. I send my parents there all the time when I can't diagnose on the phone.

    I tow a small two horse and camp in the back of my truck, but enough is similar! One thing I like to do is have a great thermos. I heat water up the night before on a single-burner propane stove, and...

    I saw the photo on my AERC facebok feed, and that was enough. Completely awful. However, for me, I don't connect the sport I've seen here in my region to what they are doing in other countries....

    On more casual rides I'll go barefoot, or sometimes boot just the front. But on rocky trails or when we're really moving out, I prefer to boot all four. I can see a difference in my horse's...
