    I probably look bigger in the first pictures because my mare is only 15.2, but she's proportioned like a regular horse so in photos it's quite deceptive :D

    I would *LOVE* to have an Equipe but...

    NL = Netherlands (sorry -- I'm too used to abbreviating when I write to friends and family)

    Don't have good confirmation shots of her right now unfortunately. She's not a super hard fit luckily...

    Wish -- I used groundwork with my mare. I did not do anything at liberty, but the methods I was following are apparently the beginning work for liberty. The approach I used was dubbed "Straightness...

    Hi All!

    Thanks for the input -- part of me is glad it's not *just* my re-rider weakness. The other part is NOT happy to start saddle searching again. Argh!

    To answer a few of the questions...

    You may be referring to a different article - but the one I read was that Horse Gold Inc (product = GastroMax3) and HorsePreRace (product=Omeprazole paste) were the products that were found to have...
  6. Saddle fit for rider -- opinions please!

    I'm having concerns about my saddle. It fits my mare nicely, and she goes really well in it -- but I feel very out of position when I ride in it.

    Some of this is re-rider weakness. I need to...

    I just returned home from NZ (literally, 4 hours ago). I lived there for a while about 6 years ago and my SO is a Kiwi. So I'm slightly NZ biased, but based on your situation, it sounds like the best...

    I'm the same!!

    Like Trevelyan96 I'm a TOTAL planner (even in vacation/holiday time) and stress in my everyday life stems entirely from those times when I feel like I don't have a plan of attack...

    I would think about what aspects of the HS one were that you loved:
    - material?
    - cut?
    - waterproof/windproof?
    - pocket style?
    - zip/button style?

    Then try to find a jacket that has those...

    I've had instances where it's an e-mail rather than handwritten note. But it's an e-mail written personally to each person. For the older generation (grandparents etc) or individuals who they didn't...

    Yes I think this is true, and I think a lot of farriers would go crazy having a partner with them day in and day out.

    But I've noticed here in NL the farrier "partnership" is much more common...

    Farriers working in partnerships?

    First off, I just want to shout to the world how much I LOVE my farriers. My mare was not good about shoe-ing when I got her in September and with their patience and kind words/reassurances she's so...

    My old OTTB was pretty good about being caught in his paddock. But on some days he just wanted to be left alone (especially sunny warm days). If I tried to go for him he'd just walk/trot away keeping...

    Drunken "rape" (I use quotations because there is SUCH a blurry line when both parties are inebriated) is very subjective in many many cases. In the above story, I would put it as drunken regrets and...

    I was a working student in a place that had a long-established "program". With 70+ horses (client and farm plus breeding stock) there was usually a team of 8-12 WS. There was hierarchy within the WS...

    I eat my mare's peppermints -- and only laugh when she throws a tantrum that I didn't feed her one too. She thinks I'm evil.

    She likes having her front legs stretched so much that if you stand in...

    If the American Dream is a concept that still exists today (which may be debatable), then it must be a dynamic concept in order to persist for 100+ years. It may be that the American Dream...

    Ok -- so maybe it's not a mare thing (I've also known lots of sweet mares, but I tend to now more alpha/bossy mares than geldings)

    Regardless on gender, any ideas?
