    Welcome to LA!!!

    Second the suggestion for The Paddock and LAEC since those will be the closest commute to you and both have a ton of lovely trainers, several rings, etc.

    I love Kim Baxter...

    All the above about training is obviously true, and helpful, but I had a mare with focus/attitude problems that were hugely and noticeably helped by Magnesium supplements. It took the edge off, and...

    I have a Childeric M and find that it fits many different horses, but it fits warmblood types a little better. It's not great for high-withers. Because it's on the wider side, I was able to use a...

    Anyone have any experience with the Northrun Ashland? There is one on ebay that (at least for now) seems affordable. We'll see what it gets bid up to. I did a search on the forums and found a LOT of...

    Thanks for the replies, everyone! I will look into the Pessoas - they seem common enough that maybe I can find someone at the barn who has one if I ask around. I don't know much about Ainsley...
  6. Another saddle thread...affordable choices for long legs?

    I've been searching the forums but haven't yet found an answer, so my apologies for posting yet another saddle thread.

    I am a long-thighed 5'8", and currently ride in a 17" Luc Childeric with...

    Interesting the amount of controversy this stirred up. I do this with my horse every once in awhile. Maybe a week at a time, not a month. She can be hot and tense and spooky, and I think it's a great...

    Now that you ask, I'm not sure. I assumed I had, since I tried the Tall in everything, but if it's a new offering, then maybe not. I bought them a little over a year ago, if that's helpful...

    You might have a height issue with the Donatellos. I'm in the same position, a touch taller (5'8") and found the Donatellos were definitely too short, especially if you plan on showing in them. I had...

    As someone who has a similar (although slightly less cushy) agreement as the girl in question, I think you should just bite the bullet and have a conversation with her. Don't approach it defensively...

    That sounds like my kitten -- the not liking to get her paws dirty thing. Once I put her in, she literally won't move her paws, and jumps out immediately, "burying" the litter from outside the box....

    Litter Box Woes

    Maybe someone has some ideas for this...

    Got a kitten a couple months ago, who never had major problems with using the litter box but would sometimes miss the box - really liked putting her butt...

    That's a good point -- I haven't seen any others, maybe it is actually a larger/defective seam. I will bring them back to the tack shop to compare -- maybe if I appeal in person, they'll be a little...

    Oh, and I did email Ariat -- I'm going to call them tomorrow. Supposedly the tack shop called them today (after I called the tack shop) and said there's nothing they can do because technically it's...

    Haha - if I didn't love them so much...I know this whole situation sounds like such a whine ("oh no, my new boots don't get along with my saddle, wah wah") but I am totally at a loss. They were a...

    I guess I could cover them with something, but it just seems such a shame to have to do that. Also, since they're kind of strange looking anyway (but very comfortable), I'd rather not also cover them...

    Ariat Volant causing rubs on my saddle

    I just got the red front zips yesterday, and was so excited to get in the tack today. Halfway through my ride, realized that the seam near the top of the calf (where there is that odd patch of...

    The mare I ride not only stands with her front legs crossed (only on crossties) but will also stretch into a full "downward dog" position, especially when she's in heat (for whatever reason). I call...

    Haha -- I think someone could make a lot of money inventing a full body suit for grey horses.

    This is all super helpful. Question for you Mountain Horse people -- in the sizing charts I'm seeing, the calf measurements are a range (13 3/4" - 14 1/2" for instance). Is that how they stretch? The...

    Budget field boots for daily wear

    Hey all -- I have a very sad looking pair of tall boots that are old pull ons, with the soles worn out and the stitching around the toes unravelling. I could bring it to the shoe repair guy but it's...

    Just a quick note on toilet training. My cat is super smart, and when we got her as a kitten, we decided to do this. We got one of the kits for it and she understood the concept right away, and...

    Well we will definitely be going to the shelter to get her a friend! The Cats House - while completely insane - is my new favorite thing. My SO has decided that I, too, am crazy.

    But he's on...

    Indoor cat wants out - what to do?

    I grew up with cats allowed outside, who lived long and very healthy lives, but when my SO and I got a cat last year we decided to keep her indoors because we...
