    You could order a halter in one size and order replacement crown pieces in another to get the right size. My pony is a sturdy 14 QH type. Pony halters are too small, and Cob halters hang too low....

    The problem is that there are so many lowlifes like the ones who dumped this puppy that genuine rescues are overrun. Mixed breed dogs have it especially rough, "breed" based rescues are more likely...

    What a terrible thing! My sympathies to the family and to their Golden's Bridge Hounds family. And my guess for a hay "theft" of that magnitude it was, perhaps, not the actual removal of that much...

    I empathize with the author, as I've all too frequently had days when I thought "I'm just not brave enough to keep doing this". Let's face it, riding horses, even well broke horses, is a hobby that...

    When speaking with friends new to hunting I've often explained it as being comparable to your gym/health club/golf club. You're paying not just for the one day's sport and activity, but for the hard...

    If your hauling really is occasional have you looked into renting a full sized pickup for those times? Then you can have the small vehicle you want for every day and the capacity for towing when you...

    I'm glad you had a great time. And I'm sure you were more than warm enough. I find that if you're cold but not shivering when you mount up you'll be about right when you get going.

    I'm 5'5" and pushing 140 and ride a 14.1 pony. We've done trail rides, hunter paces, foxhunting and are now working on dressage. As an adult, you can't show ponies in the hunter ring, but you can...

    I'm about an hour from most fixtures, 1 1/2 from others. I haven't yet joined my local hunt. Last year I was still felling out whether my pony would make it as a hunter (jury is still out) and this...

    I've used pelleted for years, and I'm in New England. It gets quite cold, below freezing frequently in the barn. My stall is matted. For the initial set up I used 4-6 bags of pellets, but on an...

    But being a pack rat does come in handy. I am able to more or less outfit a friend going on her first hunt...

    Hunter's Rest is in VA and would be a good person to speak with about training. If she can take your horse you're close enough to go & tide/hunt on a weekend.

    Hmmm...I had been away from the Hunter/Jumper board for a while. Now I remember why...the cattiness level can certainly escalate quickly.

    While custom boots may be too expensive, perhaps custom half chaps or full chaps would not be over budget. Try Journeyman Saddlers in Middleburg. They make custom chaps, I bet they would make a...

    At my previous barn we had a similar situation. Young woman who had been at several barns over the years shows up at self care barn with TB gelding. Within 3-4 weeks she's skipping a feeding or...

    That's why I titled them "almost" Newmarket :) I found a pair of lovely Newmarket Dehners on eBay once, but they were mot my size. No matter, hunting in New England is a pretty brushy enterprise &...

    I could do this! I think a couple of posters like this hung up in a lesson barn would certainly get some attention.
    This is a time when having a pony could work for me. I think if I stood behind...

    I love, love, love the Mountain Horse Serengeti. No budget for new boots unless I sell some of the old Italian made Ariats I've hoarded :)

    Ours are gone too. I was not as happy as usual to see them this year because they nested under the gooseneck on my trailer, keeping me off the road for a while. Next year I'll be ready, I'll duct...

    Very interesting thread. I live in Connecticut, not the midwest, so land prices and expenses are significantly higher. And field/pasture board is a thing of fantasy. For anyone with more than 4...
