    Suburbs of Pittsburgh, PA:

    The farm has multiple barns ranging from $700 to over $1,000 a month for board. I am not sure what amount of grooming services are included in the show barn's board (th...

    Sounds like you need to not let your barn use your horse for lessons and, more importantly, find out from your trainer WHY your horse is stopping. Is it a health issue, training issue, or pilot error?

    Is it bad that in my head I thought Namesake was a Japanese word and pronounced it as Nah-mah-sah-ki? :lol: I thought, that's a cool name but I can't figure out how they got that from Katie.

    Everyone's addressed more serious possibilities, but have you made sure that you'r breathing normally while riding? I used to become light headed when I would stop breathing or only take shallow...

    Oh yes, that's what I do. I can't really get hunter hair to look quite right. Or it just might be very flattering on me/me with my helmet on. lol

    I've ridden OTTBs my whole life, so I certainly wasn't suggesting they were crazy. However, this is honestly the first time I've ever heard anyone say they intentionally do not give some time off. I...

    Put your hair in a low ponytail. Put the hairnet around your neck. Pull it up like a headband, allowing it to flip up the ponytail.

    They may not be injured at all. All OTTB's required time off.

    Horses that are fresh off the track need time for their metabolisms to return to that of a regular horse, for one thing. They used to eating a very large amount of feed due to the amount of physical...

    The only downside to the RWR hairnet, in my experience, is that the brown colors never look quite right. I had one shade that actually ended up having a pink tone. It was like the color of nude...

    Sometimes it's the pressure of money, to be honest. Owners and riders demand results from their trainers without allowing for the appropriate amount of time to spent in training or without...

    But wouldn't cats in the wild eat the stomach contents (fruit and vegetables) of their prey? Obviously this isn't a main food source, but it is present.

    Then why do both my cats’ dry and wet food contain fruits and vegetables like spinach, carrots and cranberries? I’m not trying to be snarky, but I don’t see why high end brands of holistic food would...

    Last year we really minimized our two's dry food intake and it helped. Dry food is less digestable and cats don't technically need it. Don't buy the line about it cleaning their teeth.

    My two are...

    I guess I’m kind of surprised that would work. I would’ve thought that regardless of the size the cat would still go to the edge and pee over it. That and the fact that atleast one of mine is...

    No no, I am definitely considering getting a different litter box if the behavior comes back. I was just expressing concern about the behavior still occurring in a new box. I was hoping to see if...

    I don't have any problem with a store-bought litter box. So I don't think I would bother trying to make something. I've been looking at the dome shaped ones that have little stairs that curve into...

    The looks like the box we have now, minus a top. She is going in the hole/door, but sticking her butt out the door when peeing. She poos on the other end of the box, so that hasn’t been an issue....
  20. Cat peeing directly outside of litter box. Found a solution, but had to switch back.

    Here's the history.. F and E (keeping it simple) are 6 and 7 year old, spayed females that we've had since they were both 6 months. They have both lived in this house together their whole lives. They...

    IME it's pretty common for trainers to have beginner students take their 2-point and grab some mane (if necessary) a few strides before a fence. It gives them a chance to get balanced and secure...

    Sometimes I think of it has "standing on your heels". Have them stand and walk around on their heels to get the feeling of having their toes up and weight in their heels while keeping their balance.

    I haven’t seen the videos, and really don’t care to, but I don’t see how it’s bullying for someone to look them up. If they were publically posted on the internet it’s free game. No one hacked into...

    I was only searching to verify the photo wasn't stolen. Things were starting to get awfully Black Stallion-y up in here and I was getting suspicious.
