I am getting my first horse soon and I want to get him started on SmartPaks so when hes going on the new grain should the smartpaks be added in slowly at the same time or should I wait till he is used to the new grain then start added them in?

I’d wait until he’s settled in on the new grain. A move is always stressful for a horse, better wait. What supplements are you starting? Does he need them??

Can you talk about how it works with tipping a groom?

General rule is for a week long show 10-25 dollars per day, per horse.

1 day show usually there’s no tip, just the wage. 


The day off in-between two weeks of showing, more like:

Let’s sleep for 14 hours

Have a nutritional and complete breakfast

Catch up on missed TV

Do copious amounts of laundry

Eat more food

Sleep more

Regret showing for two weeks

Go back to the showpark
