    It is my understanding that the Budweiser horses are not true Clydes, even though they are commonly referred to as such. I believe they have some Shire blood, to get the height. Budweiser Clydes are...

    I agree with Rodawn too. In their interactions with each other, horses do not think of respect in terms of "give-and-take"--they think of it in terms of "take." You must be the boss mare, always, and...

    Update!

    The Ecogold arrived last week. It didn't do anything to help with the dry spots under the stirrup bars, so I am banishing that saddle from the repertoire.

    I like the Ecogold but it is...

    I haven't been to either of them (or New Holland, FWIW), but both Billings and Hermiston (OR) have a pretty good reputation for quality animals.

    Supporting BFNE here. My friend Brett's first wife went thru a stirrup with tennis shoes and was dragged across rocky scabland. She survived but had health issues for the rest of her life and died...

    Weird crosses: I've seen TB-Fjord and Hano-Saddlebred. Both were/are gorgeous. The TB-Fjord was very correctly built and was basically a buckskin TB. The Hano-bred is a 17+ hand black monster mare...

    Good tip!

    I have tried a Professionals Choice Ultrashock pad for the Ansur, which is open-cell foam from what I can tell. It provides a little bit of a "panel" for the saddle. My little mare...

    I have had this happen, and i respond the same way. I go one step further and will be perfectly honest if anyone asks me why I refuse to ride or lesson with so-and-so.

    I've also been snarked about...

    Thanks, everybody! :) I'll let you all know what I go with!

    Are the Saddlerights leather? I can't really tell from the website but I have heard excellent things about leather pads.

    Thanks for the advice!

    The saddle is a very good fit and correctly follows the shape of my horse's table back, except for wither clearance, which could be higher but is acceptable. The saddle...

    Thanks so much for the feedback!

    That Ecogold demonstration is pretty convincing!

    I had been leaning towards the Supracor but, now I have to make a decision. :)

    Any other thoughts from...
  16. Best half pad for shock absorption/keeping back cool?

    Howdy all!

    I just took my big mare on a multi-day mountain ride/camping trip. I rode Friday and Saturday in my Thorowgood Broadback, and Sunday in my Ansur (because Saturday was a 20 miler and my...

    I just had Huber do a bunch of work to my trailer as well. Dana, the head mechanic, is a great guy! The store stocks a lot of horsey accessories too (tie rings, corner feed bags, wheel chocks, etc)....

    I believe Hestar was who i rode with when i went there! Great fun.
    I did not take any of my own riding clothing, and honestly it would have been overkill to have done so. Unless you get a better...

    I know I am in the minority here but I actually prefer a regular cab pickup. :) But I like to haul without distractions. I prefer big tack in the tack room of the trailer and other people in a...

    Thank you!
    It's a fairly small horse and one that has never seriously set back, but I appreciate the advice. I found a cheaper, stouter bungee tie at my local tack shop with a panic snap on the end,...

    I have 17+ inch calves and can still get my leg *and* jeans into the tall shaft Tony Lama 3r boots. They are under $200 and are SO COOL. :) I will warn you that the foot runs small, maybe 1/2 to one...

    Thanks so much, everyone!
    The HiTie seems to be the gold standard, so I'll get one on order. :)
    Thanks!
