    My OTTB is happiest in the DR Cook I bought used off ebay. Who would have thunk it....;-) I used an english hackmore, various bits and this is the best solution for this particular horse so far.

    Pretty mare Simbalism, thank you! My gelding is probably more A framed than she looks to be, if that makes sense. Not really narrow, just a bit more slopey.
    Nice set up too!

    Thank you for both responses. I'm a little afraid of what you stated Simbalism, the pommel hitting his withers with an Abetta . I have looked at the Crestridge saddles and it's great to know that...

    I've used the Easyboot Trails with success. Also pick up some ladies nylon knee highs to use over the hoof inside the boot, to protect coronet band, etc. from rubs. Works great!
