    You could just laugh at them in their faces. It worked for me. I had one NH person tell me when I was on a hack that if my horse spooked at something I should back up (needless to say this person is...

    I was similarly appalled when I discovered a blonde friend was actually a brunette. I just didn't know what to do with that.

    Many years ago I was in a remote part of rural PA and we stopped at a restaurant where I got a very hostile vibe. I ordered a soda and the can came to me opened and, sensing a disturbance in the...

    Yup. I tried CF -free at one of my schools and immediately realized it wasn't going to be sustainable for me. In hindsight -it's far to extrovert for me! I think of the things I like to do: walk in...

    Fella is more relaxed in an outdoor ring because I am more relaxed in an outdoor ring. I am quite sensitive to sound (like sounds can piss me off or make me tense or distract me in an anxiety-type...

    Please tell me more about galls and neoprene. I went that way because it is supposed to prevent galls (the Professional's Choice). Fella works 5 days a week for 30 minutes to an hour or so. And he...

    I like Professional's Choice neoprene cinches. I had an English Professional's Choice and liked it very much so I stayed with it in Western.

    Haha we should form a support group for draft crosses and morgans with short, curvy backs and linebacker shoulders! :lol:

    How about a Western endurance saddle. I tried the Tex Tan flex tree. Built on a Western tree, but not much more saddle than a deep seated dressage saddle. No horn. Very comfortable too.

    I feel your pain. I have a percheron/standardbred with a short, curvy back, and linebacker shoulders. I do not have a solution for you -I went Western and that worked like a charm.

    Good luck....

    Keysfins,

    I had GERD (I swear I got it dealing with the INS) and had to take Prilosec every day -under a doctor's orders -not 14 days on. Went on an exercise kick to treat my riding anxiety and...

    I was on prilosec once a day until I dropped some abdominal adipose. Heart burn went away. So maybe figure out why you're having the heart burn and see if you can address that?

    Yes. Fella, my percheron/standardbred gelding has linebacker shoulders and I used one to keep the saddle from sliding back. Now that you have me thinking about it I wonder if it is still necessary at...

    I had a treeless saddle for Fella for a while because he was so hard to fit.

    1. It was quite stable. That very much depends on the treeless you're talking about. Some are like bareback pads with...
