    First, I don't know how old you are, but I did this conversion well into middle age, and trust me it does not happen overnight.

    I had a 17 hand gray mare some years back. For shows, she lived in a sheet or blanket and a neck Sleazy that also covered her face - eyes and ears exposed. Invariably she would have poop stains on...

    Icing is usually recommended for up to 72 hours depending on the injury. I think now you are ready for the heating pad. Advil or Tylenol or something is your friend. When I did mine, I had a...

    If destined for the hunter ring, I'd pick Bon Temps. Hunter names seem to be generally short, crisp sort of names.

    Roma makes a nice saddle pad that runs in the $35 range. Some of their other styles are even a bit cheaper. I second the idea of two show pads.

    If you buy brown reins, I would recommend...

    I would go on dressage daily and look at some ads to see about the dressage mare. A locally competitive horse at this level WITH EASY CHANGES and some decent scores at 3rd and 4th could be easily...

    Yes, 70% is a very nice score. The training level tests focus on the bottom of the training pyramid, so the judge is looking for steadiness of rhythm, nice contact with the bit, some suppleness,...

    Another fan here. I also do not believe this is "real" but for some reason I find this one very entertaining. I'll be glued to the TV every week or however long this season runs.
