    I'm not exactly sure I would say that eventing is definitely more horse friendly, at least in terms of work load. Eventers work very hard between events. 6 days a week (some even 7), and at the two...

    A lot of these are very mild and very cool. I'd love to add a few of these to my collection (pretty much anything with a Nathe mouth or Waterford mouth). Less is more and most horses don't need as...

    Clean, dry underwear, bra, and socks. They should just live in your show bag. Speaking from experience there is little worse than getting back to the trailer after joining the three day eventing dive...

    Where's Divine Comedy? Her list is crazy detailed. I think the one she sent to me when we went to Millbrook together a couple of years ago was a 6 page Google doc. I'm lucky if I can remember my...

    This was the point I hit with Vernon, who I ADORED. I had a very special connection with him and loved him to itty bitty pieces, but we drove each other mad. It was a heartbreaking decision, and I...

    This is why I always chose not to event this time of year. No one is forcing you to show. We know it's going to be hot and nasty this time of year, so if you're worried about it or it is really hard...

    1) Logically speaking from the old horseman's adage of "sell the best and ride the rest" you should actually sell the mare if she's as wonderful and easy as you are saying ;)

    Toby handles the heat better than me. The damn horse LOVES the heat. Today, the temp jumped 15 degrees (it seemed) in the time it took me to get him out of his stall and ready. While he definitely...

    The problem for Oatlands is the historic nature of the venue. I believe there are serious restrictions on what can be done (including, I think, ground prep) because of conservation easements or...

    I got them on DVD from Netflix, so I'm a bit ahead of the curve....though I didn't get to see the Xmas special. All the being said, I'll probably re-watch them. Because, why not?!

    Discrimination was when my very cute, stylish, quiet, rhythmical, clean changing appy would lay down a great round (usually despite this dumb kid's best efforts) but would get placed lower than...

    I don't know of anything you can do. Maybe hoof supplements? But, remember that EVERYTHING changes for them. The seasons, the feed, the hay, depending on where you end up, the climate. It is just...

    Probably 5-6 days a week, give or take. I'm sure 4 days week would be adequate, though I might draw out the process a bit.

    Just about anyone I know (including myself!) who has imported an Aussie or Kiwi horse will tell you that it completely freaks out their bodies for about the first year to 18 months. Typically lots of...

    I have been competing, just not eventing or dressage. We are both very happy just show jumping, and have no plans to return to eventing. Neither of us miss the little white box (despite the fact that...

    The only person who can answer that is you. I personally think there is a point you can over train, particularly for eventing, when the horse should have some independence and ability to make...

    Oh, they know.

    I had one of the worst days of my life (actually the day BEFORE I broke my leg). I hated my job and was well into the red zone for stress. I had planned on a dressage school, but...

    I use the same scrub that I use on my face. I have sensitive skin, so I'm not using sand paper! It's pretty gentle.

    They used to have open water jumps in eventing show jumping, but they finally realized it was kinda unfair to ask that question when they also have to jump INTO water the day before. Liverpools are a...

    One thing that I have found helps A LOT is to use a face scrub for acne after I shave. I read an article once about it, and both the scrub and the typical ingredients to help with acne help combat...

    I am in Virginia as well and my retired guy and his companion live in my backyard. They have a lovely shed and a big field. I check on them in the mornings and my land lady checks on them at night. I...

    I am so not trendy. I anything. When my mom got my sister and I new iPhones for Christmas I looked at her and said "but my phone's not broken!" I've missed a lot of trends over the years and tend to...

    I lost my old dog about a year and a half after my dad died. I was very, very sad to lose my dad, but losing that dog devastated me. My mom even said it, and not in any sort of critical way. She got...

    It's funny....I went a lot when I was eventing (especially when it was "right around the corner"), but it wasn't ever one I LOVED. And more because of all the things that make it great to most...

    If it is flexing sound, then it should be fine. And your horse would most likely not be a happy camper if you were riding in a broken tree. I've never met a horse to be happy about a broken tree. An...
