  1. NEW HORSE?

    Maybe you should ask reiners, this is a trail riding forum. I would not use him for reining. He just does not look built for it. But then again I am not a reiner.
  2. itchy ears!

    I have not tried this, but I have heard that you can put corn oil on a cotton ball and swap the inner ear. The corn oil will prevent ear mites. Works on cats, may work on horses. My friends horse has the same problem with his ears, and she is always apply swat. It takes her awhile to get it in there, because they are sensitive to having their ears touch. Try either the swat or the oil. Good luck, I didn't think you were pissy........

  6. Holy Cannoli! What SHALL we debate????

    Here's one to get them going Buddy Roo.... Paint horse vs quater horse. I can remember years ago being at a show. It was a Paint/quarter horse show. I stopped and asked this woman what time the quarter horses were going in, she said, "I don't know, I ride Paints". I felt like giving her Jeff Foxworthy's "Here's you sign" sign. For the most part, at least for those of us in the real world, a paint is a quarter horse with 2 colors. That would really get your debate going. Not to mention if you bring up certain trainers. Just get going on starting one........
  7. Trail ride at the lake - Keystone Heights-(pics)

    Wow KD, Ringer has grown up to be a handsome looking young man. He looks awesome. Sorry to hear about the little mishap, I am sure everyone learned their lesson for the day. It is great that he did not take off, and waited on his "mom" to save him. If I ride with a halter, I too will tie it to my saddle horn. Keeps it totally out of the horses way. You did a fine job bringing Ringer along. Where is that lake located? Sure looks like fun.
  8. Bearcat!!

    Hey Bearcat, is that just cut plywood up against your trailer tires. I have been looking for something to keep the sun off my tires. Those canvas covers are a pain in the butt. Hope you all had an awesome time.
  9. A Few Riding Pics From Today!

    You guys look good to me. I know what you mean about this Fl heat. When I go out at 8 am, my boy is just dripping with sweat from the humidty. I sent you a PM. Hope you get it.
  10. Hard hooves...Oz or anyone? Pictures now.

    According to my farrier, standing around in mud is not going to do the trick. Apply a dressing for dry hooves. There are many available. Living in FL we have a farrier who came up with a dressing, especially for the dry hooves of FL horses. He only sells it in local tack shops. He refuses to sell it to big markets. But, he has a good product that is highly recommended here and he is making the money on it. Try hoof saver or rain maker....there a lots of dressings. I would ask your farrier and see what they recommend. The guy I board my horses with is an ex-calvary man and he says they would put oils on the horses hooves when they became too dry.

  12. Back Problems..

    When I got my 10 year old, they said he had bucked a couple of times, and that was why they sold him. I noticed when I got him home, he was sore when I groomed his back. I had someone come out and give him a massage and I gave him about a month off with no riding. He is as good as new. My vet gave him a clean bill of health. So, I got a really wonderful gelding, that just needed a break and a little massaging, for next to nothing. It sure does help when we give our guys a break and look out for them. I am so glad you realize this. Some people would get mad, and sell their horse because it was not "performing". We all need a rest once in a while. You can also learn how to give massages yourself. The man who did Dillon (my horse) taught me things I could on my own to help Dillon out. He was really a nice guy.

  14. Trail Riding Wish List

    Wb....just click on your "my profile" to get your pms. I would love to ride on the beach just around sunset. I have always wanted to go to Ireland and ride, I have just seen a lot of shows with riding over there. I would also enjoy going to TN, CO, Upstate NY, oh who cares..............just point me in a direction and let me ride!!!!!
  15. Where do I even LOOK for used saddles?

    I don't see where they were breaking any rules. But if you want to look for good used saddles, I would start with the local tack stores. I know mine has a consignment area in the back. Also the newspaper classifies, flea markets, auctions, and just stop by a big barn and see if they know of anyone selling any. I went with someone to look at a horse once, and the lady showed us a bunch of saddles and tack, she was taking to a tack sell the following weekend. She said if we were interested in anything, we could get a good price. You never know until you ask.
