    I searched earlier this year and found nothing. A few old sources but none actually still made.

    I instead ordered him a custom one from If The Bonnet Fits....

    For $65 (includes shipping from the UK) I'd probably just pick these up: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Shires-SaddleHugger-Ladies-Breeches-/151585992590?var=&hash=item234b3aaf8e:m:m0oDBmnxB7kM51nV3Z9eTUQ

    I feel very, very safe on Henry, at any speed, and consider myself a very competent rider. (Or good lord I should be something close, after 20 years!) But due to riding a bolter for a few years...

    Thank you everyone for the compliments on my dear Henry. He's very photogenic but even cuter in person....he has a snuggly puppy dog personality and meets me at the gate any day, any time. We're...
  5. I finally went foxhunting...with my mule!

    Haven't been on COTH for a while, but had to log in to post this.

    I've been wanting to hunt with my local club for YEARS, and finally put it on my "must do" list for this year. I put together a...

    I noticed a difference in my 19yo gelding (who has never been lame but is just generally stiff) by the second loading dose shot.

    By that I mean that instead of our 20min warmup, I felt like he...

    It's a silly name.

    The open ones aren't what you're looking for? https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/4e/d8/f1/4ed8f18dae12b03894b853acc565c319.jpg You just plunk the board in from the top.

    ...wait for it....


    "door bar brackets". :lol:

    Some have an open side, some don't, they all work.

    They don't actually tell you what the NSC is, other than saying "low", so I would call and make them give you a real number. 20% is low if all their other feeds are 30%, for example, but not actually...

    Well there you go, I think we found the issue. ;)

    If you google "Brand Feed Name NSC" you will get results for the NSC, which is Non-structural carbs and what people look for little of when...

    Honestly, I'd probably scrap all the random stuff and just put her onto a balanced commercial feed, and make sure to feed at least the minimum recommended amount.

    Don't know what's available...

    How old is she?

    I would get your hay tested, and run everything through Feed XL. Just a cursory glance at your feed regimen makes me nervous that she's not getting a balanced enough diet for a...

    Well, I guess all I can say is that I've driven many thousands of miles with my 2WD farm truck, a significant amount of it not on pavement, and been fine. The one time I got stuck it was on a dry...

    How do you know she won't be hauling in rainy/muddy conditions? If she's parking on grass, all it takes is a heavy morning dew to get the wheels spinning, honestly. But hunter paces rarely stop if...

    Dressage rider here with very tight hips and hamstrings. Like, cannot sit cross-legged without pain sort of tight.

    We live in different parts of the country and pricing is different. $150 is about standard at literally any vet practice in my area, nevermind the emergency vet. My neighbor with a gun was away, and...

    Chicken wire (http://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/poultry-netting-36-in-x-150-ft?cm_vc=-10005) on some t-posts makes for a quick, cheap, easy fence.

    This is true of my local emergency vet as well, and they do have a fund. They were kind enough to comp my bill out of that fund when I brought in a feral cat who had been shot with a shotgun; she was...

    Because the design is the same (meant to have less pressure at the front of the girth) I'm not sure that it would solve anything, unfortunately. I am also less than impressed with the quality on the...

    Prolite Girth Rubbing :(

    I just bought a prolite girth for my very narrow, very forward girth-grooved pony.

    We've put a week's worth of rides in it now, and I just noticed yesterday that he's developing a rub. :( Cue the...

    Thank you everyone for your input! I'm going to remove the links to the photos just to preserve a little bit of internet anonymity.

    I actually started at 7yo in a dressage barn, where I was a fantastic little rider for the next seven years. I then bought this grey gelding, and trotted off to the h/j world, which is what all my...

    Well, those photos are about 12 years (and a few classical trainers, some of whom forced lunge lessons upon me!) apart, so you've just indeed confirmed that I sucked then, and I suck now. :lol:

    It's actually not. We're talking a matter of days, in both cases, from when the horse was "healthy" to when the horse was sick.

    OP is looking for someone to blame and the fact of the matter is,...
