    We had two, brothers, they were awesome. One died of cancer young, his poor brother has never been the same. Both were the lowest in the hierarchy of barn dogs, bossed around by the three-legged...

    I have a yoga ball chair, and have for more than five years. It's just a yoga ball, nothing fancy. I have/had a bad hip (horse injury years ago) that chairs exacerbate, but the yoga ball is great....

    I made one with elastic, velcro and neoprene. But there are some good options out there.

    My friend has this one for her iPhone5 (with room to spare for size comparison), seems sturdy....

    This is all very interesting! Here in Northern California there is almost no humidity, and the bugs aren't awful. It was 108 when I got to the barn yesterday afternoon, and every horse was standing...

    My gelding also had this last month. The sheath and area in front were swollen. Of course I imaged the worst-case scenario, then calmed down and thought about insects. The flies had just gotten...

    I made some reins, biothane is super tough to work with (I'm also domestically challenged.) I resorted to true tools, which I'm much more comfortable with. I pre-drilled holes with a small drill bit,...

    I made something similar to the runners armband, I just happened to make it out of velcro, elastic and neoprene. I wear it on my leg, super easy access. I prefer the neoprene because I often ride...

    Depending on what you feed, I love California Trace. It is formulated for grass hay diets. I think minerals need a carrier to bind them together, Ca trace uses rice bran and almond hull meal. There...

    The Cache Creek ride is right around the corner from you! Great ride, I've volunteered it and ridden too. Wonderful management, they'd be glad to have you. I went and stayed the night, took in the...

    Another Nor Cal rider here too! (Auburn area) Endurance has been the best, worst, coolest, scariest, bravest, most fun thing I've ever done. I've learned more about myself and my horse in a few years...

    I can only speak for my Hi-Tie, but I love it. Horse is content, but has also tested it (spinning around for an hour when his buddy left) and no problems. I do use a cotton rope, not the bungee thing...

    In my case it was just practice, practice, practice. I worked with another horse and we'd trot until my horse was just gonna turn into an idiot, and then take a break, then do it again. Same with...

    Oh, wow, I can't even imagine cold like that! If you need a vacation, you can come visit. We're having a cold spell in my part of Northern California, I got snow for the first time in 5 years, and...

    Use whatever tack and gear are comfortable for you and your horse! I ride in a dressage saddle, no one looks twice, except if someone covets your saddle! I use running hiking shoes and half chaps, as...

    The seraonline document is great, but I know when I started it make me very nervous! I don't have the type of trails where I can average 8 MPH, since I am usually dealing with rocky cliffs with...

    I don't use the easyboots, but I do use Renegades. I get about 600-800 miles out of a pair (one season), then they become backups. I have boots from 3 years ago that I can still use, probably 1200...

    Good thing you stayed on! I did not with my scariest thing: A Pterodactyl. Oh, wait, that was what my HORSE thought it was. It was a paraglider whose giant sail lifted off the trail right in front of...

    I love my Solstice. The leg position is more straight, but not full-on dressage straight (if that makes sense). I think they say it is not for jumping because the stirrup bars are straighter maybe? I...

    I can't help you with western saddles, but I have a super lightweight Wintec 2000 that I really like. Do you really need/want western? I found I was more comfortable/secure in something I already...

    I ripped out my gross carpet and put down linoleum floor, but I have a solid aluminum floor. Mats might work better if you have wood slats. I also caulked all the inside seams of the tack room with a...

    I have a 95 model 9416, (the not ramp version, I think the 9518 also is a walk-through). You may or may not like the walk-though, it does restrict the horses head area, though the trailer is still...

    You can definitely train for Tevis by staying in the Bay Area. Or drive to the mountains too. But I'm not sure of that area of Texas having big hills, etc. Plus a bit longer drive. :winkgrin:
  23. It might depend on your goals too. I live just...

    It might depend on your goals too. I live just north of Sacramento, with access to the Tevis trail and more. Many Bay Area people like the convenience of coming a couple hours and training on the...

    I bought a full sheepskin cover and ended up not really liking it as it added too much bulk. Even that small amount made the twist feel wider (but I'm pretty picky about that). It was very soft and...

    There are so many options! I use Strava, originally designed for cycling. I do keep my rides private so I don't show up on the leader boards, as people don't like when a horse completely beats their...
