    I noticed your list mentions a clinic in Late Feb. at A.M.I.T for show prep does anyone know the details. I need to determine if it would be a possible activity for someone new to riding. Thanks for any possible info.

    The farrier Angus White...

    IMO alot of local farriers are an "odd" lot! Please, Oh Farrier Gods help us in Southern Maryland! I just had a similiar event with a local farrier who I could NEVER recommend! 1- I did not like his cocky attitude, but mostly I don't understand "the I don't want to be told/informed...

    Shoulder's Back

    : When I was hunting for this, (for I have terrible posture both on and off a horse and somehow in my youth I thought bad posture would hide a big chest) I seem to remember you could get one a Walmart for a lot less than Dover. Refinement of aids is the name of the game for educated riders...

    Lessons learned on the trails?

    I too, trailer everywhere, even when only a mile! But, I think it is absurd that for the safety of my horse/self I have to! We DEFINATELY need more education, manners and general kindness! Two years ago, while in England for the summer, I was amazed that people did not become rude when they...

    Where are you showing in 2010??

    Me too, they look so sweet! One day I want a granddaughter that loves horses, riding, and yes the clothes too! And I am going to spoil her, then send her home for her parents to worry about character. But for now, the toys in this house all have wheels, motors...its a male world!

    Water-proof blanket repair

    I too swear by heavy duty duck tape! ( I keep a roll at barn and trailer if hubby does not steal it:tantrum) Especially if reasons prevent taking up to ELam's. Last spring Turbo's Blanket had two duck tape patches that held for weeks until the end of season and I washed it as well.

    Boot Repair

    I too was not very impressed either. Did not get boot fixed when they said they would, 2 weeks longer with me bugging them. Then they only did some minor zipper repair that didn't work instead of replacing the zipper after telling me they could. I too, found more help sending boots back to...

    Best Barn Features

    Those stalls are beautiful! As wonderful and needed as the air flow is I hate all the kicking, fussing, ... that seems to occur with half walls with grills so I am back to wanting full side walls with half wall fronts with mesh doors. Could not live w/o hot/cold water wash rack ever again...
