    Seigi - have you ruled out sweet itch (Culicoides hypersensitivity)? I think most horses with it also rub their manes, but some do start with the tail and progress to rubbing their mane later in the...

    USDF Rider Award Medals

    For USDF Rider Award Medals - you can get both your scores for a particular level at the same show, as long as they are two different rides, and under two different judges - right?

    Thanks, all. I agree it is a Klimke. The logo got turned sideways - it is a "K", and the black bar should be vertically aligned with the headstall and cheekpieces.

    Bridle is *believed* to be imported, but the logo is not Schumacher, not Passier, not Niedersuss.

    I am pretty sure I have seen it before, but I can't place it.

    Anyone recognize this logo?

    Can anyone advise whose logo this is? It is on a double bridle inherited from a friend who passed away a few years ago.

    Totally agree - but as mentioned, I have run in more than a few over the years who were more concerned about their bank account than the horse's best interest. :sigh:

    Depends on who the clinician is. There are some (Robert Dover is one example) that charge an extra fee for every auditor.
