    Amen. Unfortunately, that is not what pins. If you do not have the correct strides between fences even with a big-strided horse, it doesn't matter how the jump looks. You would think that a lovely...

    I left Markel a few years ago. Each little issue created an exclusion on their policy, but the kicker for me was the less than stellar customer service by my rep. Each time I would call with a...

    First of all, congratulations on the expected foal. Take the time to enjoy every step of this journey. I was a first timer too when I bred my mare and I did my best not to cut corners for this...

    Years ago, I had the same problem after I finally quit bracing at the canter. Instructors would tell me to "sit", but it just was not fluid with my horse's movement. One day, I watched an...

    I will chime in with my experience. I think you really need to be honest with yourself on your riding ability, age (reflexes, balance is different as we age), budget, and will you have a horse to...

    This wouldn't necessarily be the case. It is done at all the dressage shows and horse trials/events and on a volunteer basis. Virtually no extra cost to the show or exhibitors unless show...

    DoomPony, I am in awe of your determination. Keep up the good work. Riding is a challenge to all of us and especially so for someone with physical challenges. I am sure your riding helps your...

    Denny always gives me something to think about with respect to my riding and my horse. I have a wonderful 8 y.o. Dutch Warmblood mare that I bred. First I will say that she is my baby and not going...

    My personal opinion is that any time in the saddle is good time no matter how limited it might be.

    I am in the same boat to a degree. I went back to work the first of the year for my husband on...

    With a trainer being that adamant about specific brands, my first thought would be that he/she was getting a kick-back from the manufacturer. This scenario is totally ridiculous especially for a kid...

    Burgie:

    Several years ago, a friend of mine had a mare that was very temperamental, reactive, and just a witch. She found that she had tumor on an ovary. Once she had it removed, it did make all...

    If you want to show and that is the level that you are comfortable at this point, then do it. No matter what class you are in, more than likely there will be some high-dollar horses that cart their...

    It is never too old to start something new. Just be realistic in your goals and know that your body is not the same as it was in your teens or twenties. I rode western as a kid, had a 25-year break...

    Per Peter Menet, the Amerigo designer, the close contact will fit a more TB-type horse and the DJ (deep jumping) will fit a WB-type. I have a DJ that is about ten years old and I still love the...
