    I love Louisville (was born there), co-own a farm north of Lexington, and live in the eastern part of Kentucky. Highly recommended. The horse community, strongly eventing oriented, follows I-71...

    I generally prefer farmowner's plus an umbrella liability policy rather than equine specific. If with the same agent/company as the farmowner's, it's pretty cheap (about $300 for $1MM on the...

    Best venue in the country, possibly the world (admittedly, I'm biased as a native born Kentuckian). Jump Start is a top 10 horse trial in the nation, and we usually move several horses up there...

    Identify a professional you believe and trust. Invest in a month's evaluation.

    I've found that many really wonderful horses need a certain ride, and when they don't get it they regress, slowly at...

    Hopefully, God's grace will allow all of us to live long, full lives and die peacefully. RIP.

    We have a grand(son or daughter) in utero who we hope will help carry on his legacy.

    I don't recommend wire at all for babies. Take your lead from the Kentucky thoroughbred farms where the babies can be 7 figures in values.

    Fear is a normal response by an adult; it means you recognize the risks instead of ignoring them.

    Management of fear is also an adult response. I WILL NOT let fear or bullying dictate what I will...

    As breeders, trainers, and young horse developers, we price our horses fairly to start with and expect to get our asking price. We're more likely to go UP than down - our horses are actively...

    I believe that Diana Rich rode a QH at Rolex 20 years or so ago.

    IMO, somethingroyal is the key, not secretariat. We've competed lots of sir Gaylord horses - including an Irish one or two - but they tend to be hot!

    9 y.o. prospects are not highly sought. At that age, they need to have a track record.

    When competition, opportunity, and activities are considered, I'd look closely at major urban locations in Area IV.

    French Legionnaire sired our Advanced/*** horse. He was known locally for siring horses with jump.

    Hell yes! That price? Hell no! You can buy an excellent walking horse here in Kentucky for $500, and for $2000 you've got a world beater (flat shod, trail).

    I grew up gaited, didn't learn to...

    Yes, once, with positive outcome. Older mare (more frequent, IMO), no retained placenta. We vetted, medicated, etc., but (again IMO) I believe the earlier you diagnose, and the earlier you get the...

    We have several Hilltop babies and Hilltop have always been very professional, courteous, and helpful. Highly recommended.

    Give notice, shake hands and/or hug (whichever is appropriate) with a smile, and remain friends. Don't feel guilty - if you're not satisfied, I'll give 100 to 1 odds that she's not either. And...

    You do not need to pay khp entrance fee to go to barns. You will pay parking unless you're in the campground and enter the back way.

    Many/most here in the Lexington area are prebuilt by pros, trucked in & set. We've bought 3 and love them - highly recommended if you get a knowledgeable pro. But obviously they'll be more...
