HAPPY NEW YEARS!!!

Hello all! This year has had its ups and downs and next year is bound to bring a fresh array of excitement as well. Before this year is over though let’s all pitch in something memorable that happened in 2010.

SHOW vs. USE (Revisited)

 I imagine most of the readers of this blog are tired of the discussions covering the Plaintiffs Proposed Bylaws which will be voted upon at the convention.   I too am weary.   However, I received the mailing from Marjorie Hazelwood in the mail today (it apparently was sent out in November) and so I have had a chance…

Above Level Product Reviews*

It’s that time of year again where Above Level is experiencing the typical off-season slouch.  But have no fear, I had a glimmer of inspiration today. Is there some horsey product out there that you suspect could be useful but you’re having a hard time justifying spending money on it right now?  Perhaps you saw…

with many thanks for the support we already receive…

Thank you, everyone, for your continued support and efforts in rescuing these beautiful creatures and giving them a new chance for a wonderful life. This has been an expensive week for Forever Morgans, and we need help to replenish the funds. Transports for horses going to fosters this week alone were $800. Transporters were extremely…

New Poll: Favorite Disciplines

With a blog title of “Above Level” I’ve often assumed this site would attract a primarily Saddle Seat audience.  I’ve honestly been a bit (pleasantly) surprised by the positive responses to Hunter and Western discussions, and I know we have some dressage and reining riders in our midst.  I’m very interested to see the results…

Morgan Mouths

A few days ago, someone made mention on one of the Western threads about the low palates in Morgans and how that can be problematic in bitting.  I was thinking I’d posted a topic on this at some point in time, but I just did a search and couldn’t find anything.  I like to use…

Skip (Carol) Boyer

Skip Boyer is at St. Joe’s hospital in Ann Arbor, MI and will be having bypass surgery either tomorrow or Thursday.  She has been having some heart problems and when she went yesterday for a stress test, her doctor hospitalized her immediately and scheduled the surgery.    Skip is well known in the Michigan area and is…
