    For the show-only stuff, like my bridle, pads, that extra bottle of flyspray, I have one of these 31 Bag utility totes. I clean my show bridle and pads and pop it into this bag for the next show,...

    Pulpit was fine in a routine on the farm when everything was going his way, but keep in mind that he was being handled by uber-professionals.

    Seeking the Gold, in spite of being handled by the...

    An animal science degree on its own is not going to get you too far, although it's a lot more marketable than an equine science or management degree. Most AS grads go onto grad school, and PhDs are...

    The Dark Side is infinitely better. You don't have to feel bad about what you are or aren't. Every ride is for a personal best, not a ribbon. Nobody cares if you show up braided, not braided, brown...

    What LH said, exactly. You need to be the adult in the situation and have the hard conversation. It would be pretty rude to have her find out only when you just show up with someone new at a horse...

    I love the Higher Standards products, but for really grungy tack I whip out the 99 cent bar of Castile soap. ;) It's all I use to clean my boots--oil can really interfere with getting a good shine.

    I frequently disagree with JW's placings, and often find her comments to be based in legend and not fact. For instance, I've never found a "pig eye" or a white-rimmed eye (from a small iris) to be an...

    I also found these High Point customs--any reviews? http://www.equestriancollections.com/matrixkit.asp?groupcode=KM00005

    Spinoff: Favorite AP *show* pad?

    I am hankering for a bona fide custom pad for the pony--I saw some sharp ones at Waredaca last week and it set off my inner clothes horse.

    We are still at the lower levels, so am using my CC...

    They are cheap, but if your horse has any kind of wither prominence, they will camp down.

    Another vote for the cheap-o TuffRiders from HorseLoverz. They have a shaped wither, wash up pretty well...

    True for the non-junior set, but I can tell you that the harness rule for juniors went into effect in the fall of 1984 (I think Sept 1). There was much moaning and groaning, including by yours truly....

    Regarding the figure 8, I only buy the ones with the slide-through cheeks and nose pad, as opposed to the rings at the cheeks and/or a fixed nose pad. Some horses really dislike the rings, and I find...
  13. I need a regular old mower--which one?

    Bear with me.

    Last fall, I killed my JD GX 225 (entry level garden tractor). It honestly didn't owe me a thing--I beat the crap out of it for 14 years. Mowing, dragging the ring, pulling feed and...

    Ahh, thank you! I actually have plenty of heavy schooling breeches, and I was hoping that "fungi" would be a nice light gray, so I will pass. For future reference, though, can you tell me what kind...

    Thanks!! Where did you find the reviews? I looked under product reviews on the link I posted and it said there weren't any. :confused:
  16. How do these Horze Grand Prix breeches fit?

    These ones: https://www.horseloverz.com/product/apparel-accessories/1307466-horze-grand-prix-selfpatch-lady.html

    It's a good price and I've been looking for some schooling breeches, but I don't...

    That's exactly what it is. Waste of time and money.

    So, this wasn't quite the way I thought I'd see my name in the Chronicle, but I'll take it!

    No--I tried him and wound up buying his stablemate, who was also by Gorky Park. As far as I know, the gal who bought Donner originally was a working student for Lynn, and sold him to her.

    At four,...

    So...it's a month late for April Fool's, but I think this horse did okay as a UL horse. :D

    Allie and Sparrow's Nio brought happy tears and a lump in my throat! So nice to see a rider be so thankful to her partner, and what better bucket list goal to have come true but to get around Rolex?

    To be fair, he didn't look quite as ratty in person as he does in the pictures! What looks like scurf is really a saddle mark--these pictures were taking right after I rode him. But, agreed, he...
  25. OTTB critique? Will he make a UL eventer? THE BIG REVEAL IN POST #28

    Looking for opinions: this is a 4yo gelding who came off the track in Dec and lived in a field and did nothing for four months. He had 6 career starts at 3, never closer than 4th, all over distance...
