    I had a bates caprilli close contact saddle for about a year, I really liked it and found it very comfortable but it didn't fit my horse unfortunately. If you can try one it might be worth your time.

    No advice re: paper work etc. but I also vote for just driving through the U.S., crossing the border can be a nightmare at the best of time and your wait time to cross both ways will most likely be...

    If your horse goes in a big fat loose ring snaffle and just needs "a little more" over fences, why not just try a thinner loose ring? I also tend to go for a full cheek with a flash and that seems...

    Can you not just take a normal cotton lunge line to a local tack store and have them replace the snap with that type of buckle? If any tack stores in your area do blanket repairs and/or leather...

    My gelding is barefoot and has great feet, we ride on trails, gravel, pavement, arenas, and we jump. He gets some mild cracks in the summer and sometimes he gets some chips but nothing major, I do...

    Thank you for the info, it sounds like their No Bows might be a better option for what I'm looking for!
  15. Back on Track Quick Wraps vs. traditional no bows/leg wraps?

    I've been debating getting a set of the BOT quick wraps for my gelding instead of using traditional wraps at shows and after our harder work outs. Does anyone have any experience with them? How...
