    I love Carol - highly recommended. She's great overall, but IMO one of her strengths is developing young horses.

    Ish cougar is awesome. We have a 2015 filly by him, most people oriented foal I've ever seen. Farm fav. Have seen his young horses - excellent.

    Sounds like a typical event, including the black eye = trophy and conversation starter. Kinda like when my ex wife's horse hit her between the eyes throwing his head, and for 2 weeks everyone looked...

    Emphasize Lizrd's point - read the fine print. You're buying a horse, not adopting a baby. Several of these organizations have very onerous agreements that we will not agree to.

    Howard's rules:
    1. There are plenty of good, solid horses (probably with limited experience, but not always) for $5k. Don't go to the sales barns (or to us), go to the tremendous number of really...

    Hadn't seen this post for a while, always love to come back to it and see the additions. Couple of comments:

    Dixieland Band - we like him a lot. Megan took a Jambalaya Jazz son to the 3* and...

    Support the With Approval comment. We've sold 3 or more of his babies/grandbabies, talented and good jumpers. To the best of my knowledge, all are still eventing - the two I still see are...

    Queeny Park in St. Louis June 13-14 or Dunnabeck in Carbondale, IL, September 12 -13 are good bets for you. Local HT's, exact opposite of Rolex but I like them better.

    Perhaps I misunderstand your quote, but why would you invest $3500 in repair for a tractor that's only worth $3500? My rule of thumb is no more than 50% of the value of the vehicle whether it's a...

    No experience with Waredaca, but we've run multiple horses/students at both Indiana and Team Challenge and found them to be awesome. Highly recommend both, although I prefer the footing at the KHP.

    Soil survey data is awesome, and I've found it very accurate. But for specific installations you need to get very specific to your site.

    Silty loams/sandy/gravel do not make good bases. Haul in...

    If you have proper drainage and a good base, no maintenance is required other than to prevent incursion of grass.

    We've built three - a 100 x 200 all weather outdoor, a small dressage arena, and an indoor. You don't want to know what the indoor cost (we saved for a LOT OF YEARS for that one). The 100 x 200 had...

    Malibu Moon. Great sire line (have you ever seen an AP Indy who couldn't jump?) And the best mares in the business.
