    Thank you so much for all your help! I think I may go with an L&R. There are some decent internet deals on used ones, and from the photos I've looked at they definitely look like they'll fit!
  2. Saddle brands with hoop/U-shaped trees for BIG shoulders?

    Can anyone tell me which saddle brands to look at for hoop or U-shaped trees (NOT V-shaped)? I am having a lot of trouble finding a dressage or AP saddle that has enough shoulder clearance for my...

    Thanks for all the help! Gallop, that price is way less than the store I was about to purchase from, so thank you for posting the link!

  5. Tekna saddle owners: how do the tree sizes run?

    I'm going to be buying a Tekna A8 dressage saddle (suede seat) and was hoping some of the folks here who own this model could give some insight as to how tree sizes run. Are they pretty standard, or...
  6. Free lease, free training: should I pay her? WWYD?

    My friend is free leasing my horse. It's very informal and is basically just a "come to the barn and ride whenever you feel like it" kind of thing. I have known her for forever and trust her...

    I moved recently and was very nervous about it. I worried that I was making the wrong decision, that the new barn wouldn't be as nice as I thought it would be, that my horse would decline or change...

    Does that really work? I have always wanted to try it but was afraid of finding a tarp frozen to my windshield the next morning! :eek:

    As for the truck doors, have you tried spraying with de-icer...

    The vet isn't sure what the deal was, he theorized that maybe the horse took a wrong step in the icy pasture and needed a day to work it out. :confused: Over the phone the vet thought it sounded...

    Thanks for the help everyone, the vet came out last week and whatever it was (it was not an abscess) resolved on its own and horse is totally fine now. Although I don't think this thread is about my...

    Amen to the good eggs and amen to the trainers just like you, Phoenix, for being so understanding and patient with fearful re-riders. The world needs many more of you! :yes:

    I just wanted to update. I spoke to the BO today to confirm that my horse was indeed only getting 1 cup of sweet feed a day. It turns out the BO had misunderstood my previous instructions and was...

    She and her hubby only have one car in the interest of saving money, and he takes it to work every day. She saves money, but I sure don't!

    You're right...friends don't do this on a regular...
  16. WWYD: I'm A Chauffeur and a Doormat. Help!

    I work with my best friend of over 20 years. Lately she has been asking me to drive her home from work every day. At first I didn’t mind, and accepted the gas money she gave me. Then she stopped...

    I was feeding it just for some extra winter calories. I've since learned that hay is better for that purpose than grain, but I kept up with the sweet feed because I guess also I wanted to stave off...

    Turnout time has been lessened since it gets dark so early now - they all come in around 5:00 instead of 7:00. The hay ration has stayed about the same but IMO it's a better quality hay than what was...

    The affected leg/foot is the LH and the lameness is kind of like a dragging motion while walking, more so than an "OUCH my foot hurts and I am not going to let it touch the ground!" movement. Horse...

    I'm not freaking :lol: I am just trying to figure out why I came across so many articles re: hoof abscesses that indicate you need to call a farrier, not a vet, to handle an abscess. I've never...
  21. Sweet feed - could it be related to behavior change?

    My horse has been much more lively (for lack of a better term!) since being switched to sweet feed. The previous ration was about 1/2 cup of Strategy 2x/day. About two months ago, that was switched...

    Oh my. :eek: So you're saying that having the vet treat it (if that's what it is) might not be such a good idea?

    What does everyone else normally do for an abscess? Please keep in mind I do...

    OK to let vet treat hoof abcess?

    I'm not sure what is wrong with my horse - sudden lameness in one leg with no signs of heat, swelling, injury, etc. that I can see. The vet is coming out on Thursday and she suspects it might be an...
