    Congrats and thanks for the update, OP! I've been thinking about you. Hope those boys get to come home soon!

    Ideally the training philosophies of all clubs more or less align. After all, PC offers a curriculum of instruction for all levels and across disciplines. The whole point is teaching kids to those...

    I really miss the efficiency and professionalism of Area II events like Loch Moy! This past weekend I went to an event with probably 100 horses total, and I was there for nine hours before my three...

    I ride more with horses at home. We have an arena and community open space, so I can easily keep up with my training at home. There are three indoors within hacking distance, although I haven't yet...

    Congrats! We did the opposite move, from Baltimore to Denver. I agree that commercially shipping your horses is best. We used Brookledge; they are amazing.

    Oh, and we did two layovers on our drive...

    I have two mares at home, and this is what I do. Keeping them in their stalls with hay to occupy them seems to keep them calm and not obsessing over being the one left behind. That said, I lucked out...

    Valley Vet can ship the plastic ones for free -- I might go ahead and try them. I only need two for now.

    T

    Yikes! I will definitely keep that in mind. I would likely get the smaller version, as my stall openings are already narrow and so is my aisle. The smaller the better, which is why the plastic...

    I do prefer having a yoke, which is why the plastic ones appealed to me. They also come in green! But if folks have experience with them being flimsy or unsafe, then I would definitely rather have...

    Anyone have plastic stall gates?

    My ancient little barn had awful doors on the stall fronts that swung into the aisle. We took them off and have been temporarily using vinyl stall guards, which would look okay except they don't...

    I bought a Stackhouse without really trying one (I think I sat in the off-the-rack version at VTO briefly) and it was one of the best purchases I've ever made. They are 100% custom to your horse and...

    I always travel with the windows open, but only if there is a screen. Years ago a friend of mine had a fire start in the trailer after another driver flicked a cigarette butt and it flew in through...

    I am keeping you guys in my thoughts, especially the OP!

    We are doing well; it's hard to believe our little guy is already 10 weeks old! He is extremely cute and a lot of fun.

    In my yearlong experience combatting weeds and grass overgrowth in my arena, Roundup has been ineffectual in killing much more than grass. We switched products after consulting a professional weed...

    RoundUp will only kill grass, which is probably why you still have weeds. You need to try something like Landmaster, which will kill everything, and then drag and drag and drag to loosen up the dead...

    I always thought the H/J people had the most expensive horses until I went to the Arabian show in Scottsdale -- those people have crazy money.
