  1. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hi everyone! I'm looking for a really solid ranch/all-around type saddle. I have a Circle Y work saddle and I don't like it at all. It throws me forward, and the leather quality isn't what I wanted. I refuse to buy a saddle with plastic-y leather ever again. I want something really solid with...
  2. Horse Talk
    I have started volunteering at a local ranch and I was wondering what do you all use for working around horses. I was thinking maybe rubber boots or would cowgirl/boy boots work better? what do you all use? I would love your input on this subject. :gallop:

  8. Horse Talk
    I think we can all agree that we wouldn't work our horses during a hurricane or tornado. But is there a point (excluding major storms) where you draw the line? I won't ride if it's snowing or raining heavily (or "quickly") and I won't ride when it's windy in the winter. Or if it gets below 20...

    Hi there!! My horse is out all year, we have a rug for her and all, but we do a good wee bit of work with her in winter, should we get her clipped? We also are not sure what she's like getting clipped, as we've never clipped her before! :?

    Well, I really want to know what job I could get to support myself and a few horses in the future, without a high school diploma. I know this question kind of seems broad, but I'm as green as they can get.
