    Antares Saddle Seat Repair

    Has anyone used Superior Saddlery in California for saddle repair? The seams on my Antares (Spooner) saddle have torn. They recommended that store, but I'm in Texas and am a little reluctant to ship...

    If your pony trots very quickly instead of cantering, he may not be understanding your aids correctly. Also, when a horse gets that fast trot, it's very hard for them to lift up into canter.

    My horse learned lead changes at age 10, so I don't think it is too late. Honestly, though, it did take two years for us to get them regularly. Even now, if I don't set her up right, we'll miss the...

    I have only bought Ariat non-zippered boots. I have terrible luck with zippers and the non-zippered ones fit me so well that everyone asks if they are custom.

    My vet injected my mare's leg with Tildren about 4 weeks ago to treat a suspensory injury. The idea was that it would promote healing but it is not an instant fix. Before the injection she was NQR...

    I am your size and I ride a large pony. I love how she feels, the way she moves and her personality - she's mischevious and protective. I am also totally biased towards mares.
