    Storing saddle in trailer

    I'm moving to a new barn with minimal tack storage. I have a nice trailer with a locking tack room. I was thinking of keeping my Western saddle in the trailer and English saddle inside. Would it be...

    Just simple curiosity. My friend asked because I used to show way back when. I don't know any of the younger trainers. Was hoping she was good, our area could use someone new and exciting.
  5. Anybody know Maria Rasmussen, a trainer in Chicago area?

    A friend of mine boards at a barn she just bought. I don't know anything about her. My friend is getting the boot because she can't do the full program.

    I'm in the Midwest, north of Chicago. Even dumpy places are at least $900 if they have an indoor. There are fewer and fewer just boarding barns though. Most are show barns and get upward of $2500...

    $700 buys a lot of lessons. Personally, I don't enjoy showing. I'm competitive with me not with anyone else. I think your money might be better spent on lessons and going to a show when you are...

    I think it would be confusing at this stage of your riding to take lessons in two different styles of riding. My advice is go with the one you are the most interested in and learn the basics, whether...

    Long ago, a friend was having trouble sitting the canter. Her trainer told her, I swear to God, "pretend you are having sex with the saddle" Although I believe he put it a bit more crudely. It worked...

    This farrier is young. He bought the business from my old farrier who I never had this problem with before. If I hadn't know better, I'd thought my mare had foundered when she came out of her stall...

    Barefoot horses ...when to trim

    How long in between trims do you go for your barefoot riding horses?
    My farrier likes to keep everyone on a six week schedule. Most of our horses are shod in front, barefoot behind. This schedule...

    Yes but mine is a loose ring. I don't know if that makes a difference or not.

    Myler Comfort mouth snaffle makes my little mare oh so happy. I also like to get bits a little big just so the rings don't pinch

    Agree.

    I can't see the video but I would say the best thing is to have your vet take a look at her. Could be as simple as needing shoes even though she has gone barefoot.
    Hard ground can take its toll...

    This was my experience with my little QH mare. She was 4 when I bought, and I tried her in Western tack, even though I was going to ride English. I rode her without contact (her bit was a single wire...

    It is odd he does it coming home, almost like he wants to stay out on the trail. My old mare was anti-barn sour. I would haul up to a friend's to go trail riding. On the way back, she always wanted...

    Sounds like neither you or your horse are happy at this barn. Time to find a new barn.

    I retired my mare to a wonderful farm. I too was an absentee owner. I trusted her caretakers completely. She had a wonderful retirement for several years before passing away. Don't assume because...

    I have a friend that retired to the Big Island. She was going to ship her QH but decided against it. Native bred horses just handle island life much better than the mainlanders. The horses she bought...

    Thanks everyone for the great advice. Every time I've thought I should sell it, your same thoughts would pop up in my head. I don't have to pay to park it so I think I will just keep it. Who knows, I...

    Should I sell my trailer?

    Wonder if anyone has any advice on whether or not I should keep my trailer. The past year I have only used it once. Before that it was on the road constantly, but life changes. I am not showing...
