    I posted this before but it disappeared, so forgive me if I am repetitive. All the advice is good, but also think of feeding the skin from the inside too. I take Evening Primrose Oil pills when this...

    Also think helping your skin from within. I take Evening Primrose oil pills in the winter when this starts. It really helps. I suppose fish oil would do the same, I just herd of the EPO years ago...

    Protective vests and dressage saddle

    I recently broke ribs and am considering getting a protective vest for when I start riding again. Just in case. I also got a custom made saddle for my horse just before this happened. It has quite...

    Listen to everyone. Built up is better. I regret that I did not do that. When we get a lot of snow and it melts quickly I get water in the aisle. I freaked out the first time and built the stalls...

    I had a QH for 27 years that I had to put down last year. He had a scar across his tounge, on the top of his head and even muscle separation on his shoulders. I bought him from a local stable but...

    Sorry, got those initials mixed up. It's USEF. My point is it can vary depending on the area and organizers.

    Please post if you find a way to do this. I bought a Morgan with an odd name a year ago. The breeder said sure, change it but keep the prefix. They didn't mention the rule. I can live with the...

    Try hydrating the skin from within. I take evening primrose pills when it gets dry from heat and cold. Fish oil would work but I find it gives me a nasty taste all day.

    Taking an oil supplement helps. Evening Primrose Oil pills don't leave you with that awful taste fish oil does. I have had excema all my life, this happens a lot. When I get a split I put a...

    I have read on here, lol, that to complain requires a person to file it and pay a fee to do so. I doubt most people would do that unless it is really serious. I have never heard of a source of...
  17. Snaffle or curb

    We are offering the NAWD tests. A rider contacted me about the bits. I guess in QH shows it depends on the horses age. I looked it up and the rules for this group and it's all snaffle or bitless...
