    I never thought about it. My riding is not dependent on extreme cold or heat, I go out and ride almost every day regardless of weather and do whatever is scheduled for that day. I do not ride as...

    It depends on horse and on management. My friend has Canadian horses that are on the rotund side being out on grass all the time. The Arabian she has is in good weight and the Canadian/thoroughbred...

    One of the vacancies is stall mucker/general labor - I'm sure you qualify for that!

    I think some clarification is needed about the jumps. If a boarder told me not to put jumps out, I would be 50/50 with complying. It depends on what was discussed, or not, with the Barn Owner or...

    You can also look into Pam Wiedemann. She is in the Oxford area and has come to where I board to teach another boarder. She seems nice and has good credentials, but I cannot speak much more about...

    I have been using a fake name ever since I signed up on facebook over a decade ago. Someone must have reported you for some reason (probably a bad reason).

    I don't have a lot of money so I am always looking at prices. Locally, I believe a similar clinic from Bruce Davidson Sr. is about $400. That is just what I remember, so I could be a bit off on the...

    I bred my one mare for one foal and the filly will be 5 this spring. So far she got a lot of the stallion's traits - much more of a sporthorse. The dam (my mare) was nice but not brilliant. Very...

    They have controlled hunting all the time to bring populations under control. The park near where I grew up would close for a few days for deer hunting - the suburban area where the park was located...

    To put it into perspective, in order to buy into the Rita's franchise you need a net worth of $300K and $100K liquid.

    To open a McDonald's, you need about $750K liquid.

    I have started a lot of horses and ridden many off the track. I have not found an age issue with starting horses and the only issue I find with horses on the track longer are that some get "stuck"...

    The difference between dressage and the jumping phases of eventing is that dressage is subjective while jumping if very strictly objective.

    In other words, if I go in a beat up old saddle, faded...

    I haven't heard anything, but whenever I hear this horse's name I always think of the Chamois towels we used when I was on the diving team growing up. It is pronounced and sometimes spelled Shammy....

    My trainer would remind us that the judge just sees a moment in time.

    My mare used to get really good scores because she was so accurate. She wasn't the best mover, but she would be damned if she...

    Horses can definitely connect cause and effect. If they couldn't we wouldn't be able to train them. Hence, they can connect a behavior/command with a desired result.

    General example is that I...

    My filly crossed the street a few weeks ago because a pick-up with flatbed trailer was infront of a house. The lawncare service was taking care of the property and the guy on the mower was fine, but...

    I wonder if it would work to have this SF CCI half star in the Spring and T3D in the fall, either both at Waradeca or one at a different location in Area II. If you put the somewhat less endurance...

    A "late gelding" for me is usually 4+, but it isn't really used as an excuse, only as a reason some horses are more territorial.

    It is all very dependent also - many of the late geldings I know...

    That's an accurate description to give someone without much horse color knowledge an idea of what horse she is riding. I see no problem with it. Even a fellow equestrian may be way off the mark if...
