    The base of my arena is quarter inch minus (compacted) - which is similar to asphalt minus the tar. Maybe check into the price of it? I would be curious about whether the tar content would affect the...

    I have 100x180 and I wish I had more. I can comfortably set up a full course (and routinely school big jumps/big courses at home), but I'm somewhat limited on the length of my lines and can get a...

    I used to ride my mom's horse (jumper) for her early in the week. I SCHOOLED the horse - did circles, pulled her up on course on occasion, and often had time faults. Horse was always great for my mom...

    I use hogsfuel and it completely eliminates mud for me for the winter. And I am in the wet and rainy PNW. I usually wait too long to put it in and so I get the "benefit" of comparison as I have a few...

    I agree that pull-ons are the best way to go. The more expensive ones are generally better, and see if you can find someone to show you the trick to putting them on and taking them off. Once you...

    Never heard the term.

    I used to use big jangly western-type rowels on my big jumper when I was younger. We just called them my "big, jangly western rowels"...guess we weren't very creative! :lol:

    One month of down time and food later and he was 17h at his withers and 17.1h at his butt.

    He's now 15 and still...

    I can't find a reason to really hate it though it makes my "spidey senses" tingle. I think what would concern me the most would be the possibility of a horse tipping it with a front hoof and then...

    I love love love my mares. I love my geldings too, but I feel like my geldings are affectionate just because they're generally nice guys where I feel like my mares are "sweet with intent."

    So yes,...

    My barn was converted from a 30x60 pole barn for cows to a horse barn before we moved in. The prior people built DIY stalls with 2x6 (wish they'd used T&G) and plywood +mats against the metal of the...

    Yes, it is USEF legal. And I can say that I had one horse who got tested several shows in a row one year who was on it and "passed" (meaning was clean) every time.
