    Does anyone know what that thing they are holding, toward the end of the video, is? It looks like a giant snail shell cut in half, or something. I fear it may be a cow's stomach .....

    Very old thread

    I realized after I posted that this is actually a very old thread. I'm not quite sure how I came across it, and there is some issue with my account such that I can't edit or delete posts.

    I don't know if the driver spoke to you or not, but for my horse, if the human within the contraption speaks, that helps her figure things out. She about teleported to Planet Neptune the first time...

    I don't think it has as much to do with technique. Sure, I think you need to know the basics of forward, slow or stop, left, and right. But the real things, for a casual trail rider on an...

    As an aside, I know one totally flawed owner (cough) who duck-taped a non-matching neck cover to her horse's existing blanket. Just saying it can be done, unless barn policy prohibits such practices.

    We must all go spend enough money at Dover (on ourselves) that they can afford to pay their models enough for that poor girl in the camo breeches and Henley top to buy herself some underwear! The...

    My 25-yo Arab is definitely slowing down and doesn't have the stamina she used to, but she is still going strong otherwise. However, her topline muscle is, I think, gone and not coming back, despite...

    Awww. That is very funny, and very sweet.


    I do wish more guys rode. There is just something about seeing a guy with his much-loved horse..... I'm not talking about romance; I just mean that...

    Godspeed, Stevie. May you be running with the wind in a world of rolling green hills and good horse friends.

    OP, you did the right thing by your boy. I hope that there is some sense of peace in...

    Life Altering.

    I think it took about a week to kick in; now my horse is on it daily, for the long term.

    I can no longer ride my 25-yo Arab bareback, due to the loss of topline muscle and the rise of the Great Shark Reef (her withers). She is in light work several times a week, lives out 24/7 on...

    An hour outside Boston, MA, I pay $900 plus required lessons/trainer rides of at least $200 per month, for pretty much everything on my list, and I am grateful it even exists.

    I'm not sure why you need a breeding collection...

    I'm not sure why you need a breeding collection area and lab if this is strictly a boarding barn? And, four wash racks seems like a lot. I would think two might be okay.

    In case your boarders are...

    Given interesting work (roughly anything other than drilling 20 meter circles), my horse is Katherine Hepburn, in anything. If inflicted with too much dressage, or when I haven't been spending...

    Holy Moly! I love my Stuebben. It's comfy for everything, and is very forgiving of its owner's inconsistent cleaning. Mounting up and sitting down in the saddle feels like coming home; I swear it...

    Well, we don't need our own places to pay for upgrades and maintenance. :-) That's why board at a good barn is expensive -- we are paying for upgrades and maintenance and it's not even our own...

    I agree 100% with "your barn, your rules." You don't need to say any more than that. Personally, I find myself unable to understand how a supervised horse running in the indoor and doing the...

    I think in order to keep her horse very fit, the OP would have to hire a sitter to watch the kids on the OP's non-working days. For many, this is not practical and/or when we spend the whole day at...

    It could be worse... He could be like my mare, who pees right against the butt bar (she has at least a foot between her chest and the breast bar, but...) so that it sprays everywhere, including all...

    Buy the man some front hoof boots! Durasole has been helpful for my barefoot horse, making her significantly more comfortable, but if things are that hard on your guy, get 'im boots. We happen to...

    My 25-yo is definitely slowing down, stiffer in her hind legs and back on cold days, less stamina, less interest in long trailrides, very happy to have our once- or twice-weekly dressage-ish lessons...

    My horse's every muscle is sneering, "Well, DUH."

    We have the sneer, the "I really am tempted to bite you but I know I'll get smacked for it," the "How pretty I am!", as well as the, "You f-ing...
