    Although I can without too much trouble, I don't think I would want to climb on from the ground! I have put enough money into my saddle and keeping my horses' backs happy that I don't think I'd be...

    There are a few barns out our way that use this bit. I think it's just a very pretty Kimberwick set up so that it's quite unobtrusive looking. If it is the same as what I've seen, it really just...

    Just a quick note for those who braid their own - if you put colour in, PLEASE knot under the braid, not on top (or just put the knot on the underside all the time to begin with!). Surprisingly, I...

    Is there any chance that her hocks are sore (or that she's sore elsewhere in her hind end or back) from being fried as a dressage horse (I'm thinking lots of circles, etc), and that the exuberance...

    I've been using the tanners from Paula's choice, and am very, very happy. I'm not the most competent with fake tanners, and using the gel, have yet to come out streaky. The colour also looks like a...

    I too was very sad to hear of such a lovely, supportive lady's passing. I am so grateful for her kind words and suggestions when first dipping my toe into the sidesaddle pool. I was really hoping...

    I have had wonderful luck with the Paula's Choice line of products. The Customer Service people are very, very helpful if you email them describing your skin, it's issues, and what you would like to...

    Can you feel anything in the tree of the saddle that might be causing those two very specific rubs? I saw a saddle that had some screws pop up that did something similar. Flip your saddle over and...

    There are quite a few tack shops that offer a rental program for their Myler bits, so that you can try before you buy. Metlab makes similar bits to the Mylers for a lot less money as well, so you...

    Without having experienced what you are going through, my thought would be that you need to sort out your scalp before you see a dramatic change in your hair. I also wonder if some of the things...

    I think there's maybe a difference between "perfect practice" and striving for absolute perfection while grinding your horse to a nervous pulp? I don't think the two are mutually exclusive. Perfect...
  13. Denny Emerson on the hazards of "Perfect practice"

    Denny posted this to FB this morning, and it really resonated with me. I wanted to share it here as well, and would love to see what people think. It bothers me to see people pick and drill their...

    There's no harm in trying retirement and seeing how the horse takes to it. As GoForAGallop pointed out, it's not a one-way street. If he's unhappy, put him back to work! For what it's worth, I had...

    If you saw me at the one-day clinic at Iron Horse, it was with a freshly dislocated elbow. Can I please use that as an excuse for being somewhat less than effective? ;) I had that sucker taped and...

    I just wanted to post a little update, in case anyone remembers this thread from early winter. I spent the winter working really hard on both myself and getting my nice horse more ridable, and am...

    Tack shops or horsey clothing places will often host a barn night, which can be fun if everyone is able to take part.

    You can find long shanked hackamores for less by looking at Western tack. Here's a braided leather one for $40 (although it's not nearly as nice as the HS version!). Pop a fleecy cover on the...

    There's two ropes there - a dark one from fly bonnet to noseband, which holds the fly bonnet still, and a white one that runs from one side of the pelham to the other over the nose. I would agree...

    Although there is a blank for the previous owner's EC number, if they don't have one, you can simply write either "unknown" or just leave it blank. You'll still get your EC passport. :)

    Having read your post that elaborated on your horse's behaviour a bit more, I too would suggest trying a gag. They're very nice for bringing the head up, which I don't think the Kineton will really...

    I used a Kineton with really good success on a strong jumper (and yes, it loops around the bit to hold the bit up and apply pressure over the nose, versus the lever noseband that keeps the jaw from...
