    Thanks all! I live on the very east of the Great White North, so the selection actually around me is pretty limited. This is a great help!

    Old Macs? Cavallos? Easyboots? Help?!

    For those of you who have used or currently use hoof boots for riding, I'd love to hear some reviews! My trail access has recently gotten a whole lot better, which is very exciting, but mare's...

    I am a huge fan of Lovatt and Ricketts saddles. I have never seen their cob saddle, specifically, but judging from their other saddles, I'd bet they'd do a great job fitting a wide, cob-type horse --...

    Lovatt and Ricketts is a lovely English brand, similar to Kent and Masters. I use mine on my giganto-withered TB girls; one of whom has pretty serious lourdosis (which is only getting more pronounced...

    Check if Apple Saddlery ships to the States! If so, you can get 'em for 350 CAD. They are also the loveliest people ever to work with and talk to on the phone, so long distance shopping shouldn't be...

  9. Considering leaving my barn of 13 years; feelin' blue!

    I promise that this wont be an "I hate my BO/fellow boarders/family of barn swallows" thread!

    Sigma Breeches?

    I'm hunting for new show breeches, and came across a pair of these marked down from over 100 to less than 50 dollars. I've never seen or worn this brand, and while I'd prefer to try before I buy, if...

    My Treadstone Tuscany boots are going on a year this August. They are used 3-4 times per week, and while I resolved to be a good boot mom, I have slogged them through mud, muck, snow, water, manure...

    Well that'll teach me to respond without reading through first :lol:

    I hope the culprit is found quickly! Being itchy is the awful, and thinking of mystery bugs isn't so great either :eek:

    There has been a huge resurgence of bed bugs in the past few years. It's more common to find them in cities, but totally possible for them to be in more rural or suburban areas.

    I've never been in a situation like this for horse-related things, but my general take on it is this:

  16. Dressage saddle at starter... not crazy, right?

    Around here, it is the norm at HTs for the lower levels to ride all three phases in the same saddle, usually a CC or AP. Makes sense, as multiple sets of tack are an investment and most of us...

    I think the interview posted does a great job of explaining Dr. Noakes' ideas in an accessible way. The lack of potential buzzwords is refreshing!!

    My favourite for slowing them down:

    Jump a single, halt, TOH, jump the other way round, halt; TOH. Lather, rinse, repeat. It's nice because it's very simple, so it's easy to evaluate your level of...
