    I'm in Lexington/ Gtown and occasionally in need of a trail riding partner. :) I currently foxhunt but also have a few reasonably steady youngsters that need more trail miles. I have a bad sense of...

    I was in VA last weekend and kept the kids' ponies with Betsy at Hunters Rest. You will have a great time! I hired a horse from Betsy so I could go out hunting (with the kids) and he was the...

    I thought I would give another update--we did another qualifier this weekend, and this time no stomach bugs. I just have to say, what a great day! The country was spectacular, the kids were all...

    I think you and I are actually probably pretty close in philosophy. I really agreed with some of the things you said in your other post, especially the part along the lines that riding can be...

    Libby, I think it is so nice when it can be a family activity! I get a lot of special time with my boys when we head out to ride together.

    It is a popular feeling that boys should like games--I...

    Yes, see, that's why although it's great that your friend generously gave you the waterers, they are a tiny portion of the total cost and effort that goes into having a functioning, non-freezing...

    I love the Chronicle and look forward to every issue, but I too find some of the focus disappointing. I primarily do the hunter/jumper scene, but I'm interested in reading about more than a...

    Ok, just to clarify, you need to run your water line to the waterer at a normal depth for your area, a certain distance below the frost line. But then, the hole under the waterer needs to be much...

    Yes, you will need your plumber to install them along with help from the electrician. The big cost with automatic waterers is not the cost of the waterer itself, it is the cost of installation. You...

    JP60, thanks for your great post. I agree, Dad's attitude and involvement is important. My own husband is not a rider, but realized for the sake of his sons (in particular his one horse crazy son)...

    I have a large head with an oval shape and I have had good luck with both CO and Samshield. I prefer the Samshield because of the removable liner and the ability to change the liner to wash or to...

    I have purchased items from Middleburg Tack Exchange. They don't list items online, but I called about some specific things and they emailed me very detailed photographs of several items. And, they...

    I have a helmet rule at my barn. Part of the issue is practical and insurance related. It's easy to say that it's a person's own fault if they get injured because they refuse to wear a helmet but the...

    Thanks KateDB. This is the first time there have been qualifiers in KY so I think most of the kids are pretty new to this. Mine are on the younger side and used to riding with me when we hunt so this...

    That sounds pretty neat! I was hoping to get over to spectate a bit, I'll have to try to see that part.

    Many vote is for the Dehners. I think that traditional field boots are more forgivable than...

    JNAFHC qualifiers--anyone going?

    This year my kids seem to be on a hunting kick so we are planning to participate in this. We haven't done it before, so I'd love to hear any experiences or advice. It sounds like it should be a fun...

    I love plaited reins! I would still use them if I could find a pair made out of decent leather and not made in a ridiculously long 'western hunter pleasure' length.

    I think that doing some trail rides and gradually building up the time you are out and the speed that you go is a good general way to start. If you come from an eventing background, a horse that is...

    I have two Hunterdons, I had them reflocked and had a little padding added to the seats. I only ride in them as a last resort, boy it's still like sitting on a fence board with stirrups. It must be a...

    Yes, I've been wondering about this conflict. It's definitely going to be a busy weekend in Lexington! Honestly, I don't know how the city is going to house the spectators for the Breeders Cup alone....
