    I would not spend the money on one huge mat.

    I would level the stall base with stone/ gravel (we use crushed asphalt at our barn, which is inexpensive and compacts well).

    I would buy multiple...

    Just want to clarify with this, that most people do NOT think the sedation that accompanies twitching is a pain response, more that it creates an endorphin release (akin to acupressure points). There...

    It was 20 days before I noticed anything. We did five days off, then slowly started back with walk, then walk/ trot, then some canter. Maybe two months before we were back to full work... but for my...

    Try some of the UK sites like ebay.co.uk and preloved. Seems like I see a lot of those high ported bits over there. Good luck.

    In general here in Michigan, our venues are finding it extremely cost-effective AND good for the sport to offer not only BN but Starter level at all HTs. The upfront investment in materials is lower,...

    Thanks folks!

    Those of you who use a fleece cover... do you have any issues with shifting or wrinkling? Because I can see that being a far greater sin in the eyes of My Delicate Flower Man.

    Just don't expect an overnight miracle. I was very VERY glad that people here advised me that it could take 3 weeks or more to start to see results. It was day 20 when my horse started to seem...
