  2. Equine Careers and Education
    Good evening everyone! I hope all is well! I am currently attending Asbury University, and our program is great. I feel welcomed there, and I know the horses. Unfortunately, I do not have anymore riding classes left, so the hands-on experience is mostly gone. I am new to horses in my experience...

It is literal trash right now, but I'm not an adult and it belongs to my grandparents so they will not agree to burning it down or rebuilding a new one. I'm posting this to ask you all what I can do to organize everything...

    Hi All, My husband is Military and it looks like we may be moving to the Colorado Springs area. We have always been spoiled with lush summer pastures and plentiful water and hay. This is not going to be possible when we move. I am trying to find out the best way to switch my horses from...
