    It really takes a village to get me dressed, doesn't it?! :D

    Ok, so black it'll be this time out, but seems like even RPM won't blanch if it's green next time (CO makes the Hampton in green - not...

    hahaha: my last black hat faded to purple - and not even aubergine, more like grape! I do admit that the current one doesn't get out much, since I prefer my XC one, and the new horse isn't hunting...

    the "common condition" might also have been walking the course with a trainer of dubious skill, as happened to some people I knew back in the day. ;)

    Thanks, everyone! Since I don't usually care much about clothes, I'm having a good laugh at myself - but so appreciate the tips.

    ah - of course, SLW! Should have clarified that this is for a horse trial. For hunting up here, it's your choice of black, black, or black. ;)

    For the horse trial, I can wear "hunting...
  6. brown boots and tweed jackets, but hat?

    Once one has acquired the insanely beautiful brown boots, one MUST dress to do them justice, no? So one acquires the pretty olive-y tweed jacket, probably not quite proper because it's very...

    Let me see if I've got this straight.

    Before the lesson, horse "seems to have lost his confidence jumping either sometimes backing off the fence or rushing as if he expects it to hurt." You...
  8. Thank you! That's JUST what I need.

    Thank you! That's JUST what I need.

    thanks - much appreciated. I was a little worried, reading the descriptions, that it'd only give me a street address to track her - and, um, yeah, all well and good, but she's in the woods or fields...
  10. tracker for dog who occasionally wanders?

    Does anyone use a Tagg - http://www.pettracker.com/ - or similar tracker for a dog? I've never worried about my mutt going out for a little hunt because she was always back grinning within an hour...

    maybe a shot in the dark but don't think anyone's mentioned it. My older girl was restless and at a trainer's suggestion I talked to my vet about pain meds. Put her on Rimadyl and she's much more...

    wow, what a nightmare! Glad she's recovering well. Not the same situation at all but I've given both Previcoxx and Rimadyl to my arthritic 12 year old, and the latter was much more effective for...

    Insurance, etc issues aside, I can absolutely see why someone would charge a fee, especially if she doesn't really care to ship the horse. Let's be honest, it's much easier to just take your own. ...

    My Clever Trick grandson (by Tricky Creek, who doesn't have a great rep for manners) was one of the most generous horses I've ever ridden, from the very first ride less than 24 hours off the track....

    it may sound crazy, but I had one who'd only crib on one post, and I stopped him by capping it with an old quart yogurt container. worked perfectly - and he was a very dedicated cribber.

    Am I just out of it that I've never seen a kineton (or similar noseband) with a chain?

    OP, you say several times that the check was "written on" the day the price was quoted, but you never say that you gave the check to the seller or that he or she accepted it. Until I know that, I'm...

    call a really good tack repair shop about the noseband. I have one too, and was directed by KL Select to someone in CT who could shorten it. Haven't gotten around to doing it yet, but it's...

    There are plenty of used ones out there at stores that allow trials. Even if it's not exactly what you'd order, you'll get a sense of how they feel and how the balance is.

    Ditto - and that comes from a person completely addicted to her Stackhouse. I have a friend who absolutely hated it. Swore it was like sitting on steel bars or something. I only bought mine after...

    Do you think this is a good idea?

    Having just read some posts about the cost of eventing, my response to this is that the cost just went up, but that aside, I do wonder where we draw the line in...

    Looks to me like organizers are damned if they do, damned if they don't: Complaints about the cost of eventing coupled with complaints about insufficient loot and services and losing events. As for...

    Asking here because no one does tack like you guys. Scored a beautiful bridle - a KL Select no longer made but new - and the figure 8 is sized for an elephant. Easy fix if it weren't raised. The...

    material aside, we used to fold them back at the front. Never worried about the end under the saddle back in the day, but sure would now. Maybe we were doing it wrong...
