    You know your blades are dull when the blades start to drag in the coat, or stop clipping altogether, and cleaning doesn't make a difference. There are loads of blade sharpening places out there. ...

    I should also add that the Canadian rep was great to work with - he didn't know my husband and I from a hole in the ground, but was happy to let us take the saddle home to ride in, then return later...

    We just bought one, a Palm Beach demo model. My husband had been looking for an upgrade from his current saddle, and we made the mistake of sitting in the Voltaires at their booth at the Royal. ;)...

    I clip a LOT of horses, and use the T-84s over the entire body, ears to tail to hoof. The A5's will get the job done if you're patient (and the horse is too), but they'll be slow, may leave lines,...

    No issues at all with mine either, and I use it on a sensitive mare that marks easily!

    Eleanor, will you please share your recipe? I have one that, when it turns out is delicious, but often comes out over cooked at the edges and porridge consistency in the middle. Either that, or...

    I did my chestnut mare in burgundy once, only because I had left my chestnut skein of yarn at another barn and needed to get a passport picture for her ASAP. I think it looked nice enough, but I...

    The EcoGold pads are a really nice option too, if you can find one to try. I find the Ogilvy like a big pillow under my saddle, and don't enjoy the feel it gives. My EcoGold pad is much better...

    If they're the little ones, then I'm afraid you need to settle in with a good movie, and just pick at them... I would be very hesitant to wash the jacket with the burs in there still, for fear of...

    No need! :) I own both sets of Andis clippers, plus their new 5-speed set. I have clipped 5 in one day using the 2-speed pair with no issue at all. I save the Progress clippers for the disaster...

    Myler pelhams have pretty thin mouthpieces, comparatively with other brands. Plenty of options too, if you want something other than a plain, straight mullen mouth.

    sascha - Yes, that was me on my Dad's mare! We were trying to get an outing in before heading to the Royal for the TB Under Saddle classes. :) Thank you very, very much for the kind words! Your...

    What a fun thread! It's neat to see all the different things that people do with their horses. :)

    My mare is primarily a hunter, but we do a fair number of other things for fun as well. She goes...

    If you don't mind having them custom made and perhaps paying a little more, contact Antares directly. When I had a very specific request to match one of my nice high-end bridles, the company that...

    Instead of snipping the long hairs, pull them. This will start thinning his mane again, and you'll eventually have a manageable one. :) The heavy towel on a damp mane trick is great too!

    I almost feel I shouldn't add to the old thread, but I read things like the posts above, and can't help feeling as though I must have been tricked when I thought I was riding with GM himself. And...

    Thanks findeight. The rule portion makes perfect sense, really. Next rule question - I am assuming that if the horse lowers the height of a fence they have yet to jump, it would be returned to its...

    A bit of a segue, but a few questions about Charlie Jayne's jumper please. First off, does it behave like that in the warm up ring, or just before beginning the course in the actual ring. If it is...

    I really, really like the Lucky Braids shampoo. You need to curry it into the coat to be all nice and sudsy, but it does a wonderful job on any coat colour. I have also never found it to irritate...

    The Higher Standards products are fantastic, and I'm trying very hard to spread the word about them in my own little circle - most of my horsey friends were gifted a jar for Christmas last year! :)

    For what it's worth, I had the best luck stopping cribbers with a Dare collar. It didn't have to be quite as tight as the other styles, and also didn't seem to rub nearly as badly as some of the...

    Reviving this thread as today I saw a number of these bits and snuck a closer look at them. The ones I saw today were most definitely Myler snaffles (or Myler knock offs) that someone had added curb...

    I have an Arc de Triomphe pair that I really, really like. They're soft, nylon-lined and a good width, both front-to-back and side-to-side.
