    I used Brookledge to ship to CO from VA in 2012; at the time they told me they do two trucks to CO a week. Anecdotally, I often see them on the road (I live near the Horse Park). They're definitely...

    Mine is 100 X 200 with lights. The lights are amazing, like a ballpark as one poster mentioned previously, and have helped not just my riding but also playing with the kids after dark and plowing our...

    We have less than 6 acres in somewhat civilized CO and our 10-year-old 500 CC heavy-duty 4WD quad (which cost quite a bit more than $1K) is barely enough for what we need. If you can manage until you...

    My daughter and I watched the low jumpers yesterday, and it was downright scary. I thought the best ride in the class was easily on par with some of the worst of the training-level eventers in Area...

    Same here. We've had about 4 FEET of snow at our house so far this year. Makes riding a little less fun, but I hope this means green pastures come summertime.

    Well, goodness. If that is true, then eventing in all of Colorado is doomed for sure.

    I would love for such a statute to pass in my Colorado county. Our neighbor is a borderline hoarder, with 9 horses on 5 acres, in varying body conditions. I've gone to the county about it but...

    We have two in our house. They are AWESOME! Both are big enough to heat 2500 square feet, plenty powerful to keep things warm in the winter. We also have forced air and baseboard heat, though, so we...

    Ditto this. County saddles are not truly custom, either; rather, they are customizable. Spend the extra couple of hundred dollars for a truly custom saddle that is made of far superior materials!

    I pay $65 for just a trim; $190 for four hot shoes with clips.

    I was at a USPC standards and ratings clinic about 6 years ago, and then they said PC was no longer endorsing the use of peacock stirrups. There have been numerous cases of jodphur laces getting...

    I got 150 bales, and so far about 10 of them have had particulate must and mold throughout the bales. For a couple of weeks I was able to root through them and find some without dust or visible mold,...

    Hay experts: mold test results

    I just received back test results on the hay I suspected has some mold:

    MOLD COUNT 100,000 cfu/gm

    YEAST COUNT 20,000 cfu/gm

    MOLD IDENTIFICATION 100% Aspergillus sp.

    ** Mold(s) detected...

    In my case it looks like a really fine, dark-colored dust on everything. You have to be really examining it closely to see it, however. Dust flies up as soon as you separate a flake for feeding. It...

    Thanks. I'm from the mid-Atlantic and have come across really moldy hay in that humid climate, and I know the smell. This hay doesn't smell super moldy. It still smells okay (though not as sweet as...

    Thanks for your really informative post. A little off topic, but other than testing for mold, how can the average hay buyer distinguish between dust from the hay field and mold dust? I have come...

    I don't have any advice, but I will say that $216 for corrective shoeing is a bargain. I pay $190 for four regular shoes, which seems to be just about the going rate in most areas.

    That design with the little notch at the bottom scares me. Looks like it's just inviting a leg to go through it.

    I've never been tested but I do see them regularly at events. (Well, I did when I lived in Area II.)

    They seem to focus on certain horses. A friend of mine used to ride a pretty well-known former...

    I'd wait for the soil samples to come back before fertilizing. Also, the type of seed you're using will dictate to some degree what is best to use.

    Part of the problem, and this goes beyond eventing, is that many young people conflate popularity with respect.
