    I've had a Red Barn bridle for a little less than a year, I do like the quality for the most part however the leather on the throat latch (where the holes are punched) has cracked, superficially. ...

    Good to know, I had one of those measuring cups from TC a long time ago and thought it was almost a 1:1 ratio.....luckily I only just bumped it up from 1 quart am/pm a couple weeks ago! Will...

    As far as unique injuries go....last summer my horse bit electrical tape and burnt his tongue, I didn't realize this until after a particularly bad lesson when he stuck his tongue out at me and had a...

    It's lymphangitis (not cellulitis, looks similar but really not the same). When the entire leg is swollen, the skin separates from the pressure and that's why it is leaking. This is considered an...

    Thanks for the advice! Believe it or not my vet wanted me scrubbing it THREE times a day with Betadine (which I thought was completely nuts and opted for the once a day route). I will definitely be...

    I know Professional's Choice now sells dressage pads with crystals on them, as well as glitter bell boots. Crystal browbands are easy to find, and I just came from a show where everyone had crystal...

    When I was boarding at a farm with no ring lights I used to drive my car up to the ring and put the high beams on :D Worked well enough for me!

    Embroidery doesn't take up enough space to really affect how the pad works, even if it does damage the ceramic fibers in the area being embroidered :yes:

    I love piping on saddles (even the brightest/craziest colors) but agree with not doing metallic colors--it really does wear badly. The only thing to worry about is that your resale value may be...

    I use one on my western saddle, for the longest time neoprene girths would take my horse's hair right off. I have kind of neutral opinion about them, don't hate them but not something I'd...

    I go without wraps in the summer (maybe bell boots if doing a lot of lateral work or if he's been clumsy lately) and sometimes polos in the winter if it's really freezing--don't want a cold ligament...

    You could sew small weights into your jacket lining :D

    ETA: No light "summer" tech fabric will drape well because there's no weight to keep it down.....so as it may seem like I'm...

    You're right, it doesn't sound like she is having pain now (should have clarified lol) but as we all know horses never forget anything!! So it'll just take a while to "rewire" her brain ;)

    Sounds like your mare could benefit from voice command-only transitions. She's afraid of the pain that comes with changing gaits and from being punished for who knows what by the previous owner. ...

    As a beginner, unless you have an experienced friend telling you if the instructor can ride or not, it's not so easy to know. That's why test scores come in handy, it's a fairly basic way of...

    If you buy a Mattes from the world equestrian brands site you can order an L or XL size, which would fit your saddle. Plus Mattes have some of the best customization options compared to other pads,...

    I guess I will never pay for lessons with a trainer who can barely ride a horse--the strong urge to cringe or avert your eyes as your trainer schools a horse is a very bad sign. One of my old IHSA...

    I don't know of any one in particular but have you tried searching training level tests on youtube? I watch a lot of them prior to showing (for test memorization help) and some of them actually have...
