    I ride & show sidesaddle but I've never quite mastered the "art" of jumping aside. I think the combination of the right horse & saddle is absolutely key. I have a tendancy to "twist" to the left over...

    Love love the photos from the hunt! Not sure if I'd be brave enough to jump all of that sidesaddle!

    Some great ideas! Thank you!

    Really love the mini-derby idea and the turnout class. A "make your own" course could be fun too.

    Bwaahahahaha! Now if I had a white horse I REALLY wanted to keep clean after a bath... perhaps but not for $600. It looks like regular stretchy Lycra material like any of the slinky hoods?

    Oh I so know the feeling! When it's dark out and cold, it's so much nicer just to tuck in the house and curl up in a blanket.

    Thank you! That's also really good to know.

    Which blades for body clipping?

    I'm about to order a new set of big body clippers (The Double K's) and I am wondering what size of blades I will need? They take either Oster A5 blades or the Andis AGC blades. Would a size 30 blade...

    The problem with adding more fluffy pads under a saddle is that it can make them fit even tighter. Think of wearing a shoe that's already a little snug. If you put a pair of big, thick wool socks on...

    Selling horses makes me want to snap!

    I'll start out by saying that I'm fairly new to selling horses and I sure don't plan to do it on a regular basis if I can help it. How do those of you that do this on a regular basis stay sane?
