    Stall base - Over Clay

    OK - so we've moved to Kentucky from Florida and temporarily I have the horses in the old (soon to be hay) barn. Unlike Florida's soil (sand) the clay here gets wet with urine and stays wet and...

    When I travel I do try to eat the "local" dishes - turtle, shark, buffalo, etc... Why eat the same ole thing when you can try something different?

    I agree with Contact Info. – phone number, business address and mailing address (if different from business address). The different addresses helps me distinguish "fly by night" companies versus...

    My trainer had a student that went to a local German trainer who put her in that situation - she ended up with a broken neck.

    So no - I wouldn't have a rider up with side reins on.

    First - I would suggest NOT using draw reins (at this time). Horse will only learn to come behind the vertical. (I rode in a double bridle when a teenager and was still hesitant to go to draw reins...

    Action pics - he appears to use his hind legs well.
    Nice topline.
    I would like to see more "bone" (thicker) on his legs. You probably won;t have an issue (my SWB mare has finer bone than I would...

    For my Florida barn we used a shell/sand mixture. No problems with horses feet and lasted for years. After about 20 years we had to add some more to "low" spots and use tractor to smooth out ruts,...

    Temple and Drexel are both top notch schools. Try to convince him to go there for his first year then re-evaluate. He'll probably make friends and want to stay! Main thing is he'll want not to live...

    My SO agrees with your SO and used larger posts. It's been close to 20 years and most of them look great (cypress so bug and rotting resistant). Larger posts last longer.

    My Merhow is 8 ft wide and plenty big enough for my 16.3 hand horse. 3H, LQ, Slant load with tack compartment in the back. I agree with cdalt, I would not want a narrower trailer for my big mare.

    There are two different "tinges" to grey/gray - blue or green.
    I am assuming your gray is blue tinged based on your wanting to go blue.

    So you can go with blue and maroon or red and silver -...
