Clever Blog Title Here > Fourth Of July

Posted 30 June 2012

The birthday of our country is this Wednesday, and I'm always a bit nervous for my horses.

Posted 29 April 2012

So I've been following a few of the threads on HC about a rider's weight/fitness and how that affects a horse. I couldn't find exactly who suggested it, but someone had made an offhand comment about how she would like to see someone look more towards the positive side of this issue, and share what it is that they are doing to help themselves (...
