    Whaaaaat? Why wouldn't they ship them in the order they were ordered?
  2. This is the one thing is truly love about...

    This is the one thing is truly love about eventing. One of my first few events ever, I forgot my xc vest (5-6 hours from home). I didn't know the eventing community that well yet, and had no less...

    I walk loose rein. Depending on his energy after 10 mins I might pick him up a bit. Trot on long contact and then back to walk on contact before trotting on the bit.
  4. I have a ring but the footing is quite deep. ...

    I have a ring but the footing is quite deep. I've pulled out as much footing as I can, but am not in a position to invest money into this place or the ring (leaving soon), so limit how much work I...

    I have 100 x 180. Love the width for jumping and flat work, though wish I had the extra 5 metres for a full length dressage ring.

    No lights but have a motion light and work lights that are fine...
  6. As I understand it, the seat on a road bike...

    As I understand it, the seat on a road bike really isn't designed to cushion your bum, but fit your seat bones just right so that your weight is just supported and the seat follows your shape. I got...

    I will once/week for Feb/March for open riding, IF the weather cooperates.

    Depends how far you have to go. Also simpler if your truck can just stay hitched etc.

    It's been many years since I lived there (12), but there was very limited "English" riding, and not nearly of the caliber that is going to haul any sizeable distance to compete. I gave up riding...

    The point wasn't that they tried to borrow them in the first place, but that they continued to do so after being told not to. I don't care who tells me, I wouldn't be brazen/rude enough to...

    What part of a boarder saying "Those (privately owned by boarder) jumps do not belong out there" means you need to hear it from the BM/BO? They belong to the boarder, so regardless of where they are...

    I have a half morgan (Morgan/Canadian) who is incredibly smart, and a full Lippitt morgan pony mare (Four Hearts Daisy). I haven't gotten to do much with Daisy, but so far she's been clever and...

    As a boarder, I appreciated routine so I could work around it. That said, I was flexible enough to work around them, or to go get my own horse, etc.

    Now that I keep my horses at home, I like to...

    The OP's post stated:

    |- "borrowing" equipment such as jumps that belong to individuals, NOT the facility, and relocating it to the track, even after you were told by several boarders it's not...

    For that much acreage that isn't yet fenced and doesn't have an arena but you plan to develop; the tractor will be needed. We have 5.5 acres but it was mostly set up. While a tractor would be a...

    I need to be able to visualize your run in shed, but the idea of panels easy and temporary, and you can resell them or use them elsewhere when not needed anymore. I added gates to my run ins, so I...

    We have a sled we bought at Costco that tows behind our quad. Has a solid tongue/hitch as well. Use it to move wood to the house for the fire, to move small squares (7-8 at a time), and to move our...

    "borrowing" because they were specifically told they did not have permission to utilize the jumps as they were trying to. Borrowing implies some sort of consent on behalf of the lender, otherwise...

    They've been lowering the discount by only about 1% each week. I don't imagine the entire pre-order discount will disappear, but who knows?

    I second the idea of building up at the walk for a few weeks, then adding trot and then canter. Putting the bit of time in now will help protect his soundness as he comes back into work. Being on...

    It's a shame it took you giving notice before they "allowed" you to ship out. Too little, too late. Hope the new set up works out!

    Also, consider whether your clients (owners of the training horses) will want individual turnout. I keep my guys together (when possible, I have one bully), but when I sent my mare out for training...

    Thanks guys, the baby powder seemed to work (thankfully)
  24. *squeak squeak squeak* (please help)

    My tall boots and dressage saddle squeaked SO bad tonight while riding, it was actually obnoxious to myself, my horse and all other riders in the ring. Pretty sure the barn could hear from the...

    Sorry for your loss WB Mom. I did the same thing with my first pet, a cat. She was 16 and I noticed domino breathing, so in we went. Turned out she had a mass in her stomach. Vet gave me the...
