    I would use a gag with two reins. If the horse is really well schooling on the flat I would prefer to have a snaffle rein and then only engage the extra leverage/breaks when needed. Hopefully that...

    Anyone know the difference between the hyper nylon material the Equiwing stirrups are made from and the material Royal Riders are mate from? (Polymer composite or something...?)

    For saddles, it isn't alwaus the brand that is important. Even individual models within one brand name can feel vastly different. I had a Devoucoux Oldara that I liked but I despised the Biarritz. I...

    I have had Tredstep half chaps for over 2 years (it might be 3 now?). Ride 5-6 times a week. In their earlier days I was riding multiple horses a day. Only just recently (last few months) have I only...

    I vote what goes on at home to keep you and Nikki competitive in the show ring! I think how you manage her nutrition can be incorporated in that.

    For a bridge style breastplate I love this one. It's a much cheaper alternative that doesn't compromise quality. It's a beautiful piece of tack that can adjust everywhere. It's also one of the only...

    I haven't been to Tryon yet, but if the footing is the same stuff that they have at the Kentucky Horse Park I am not a fan. It was great when it monsooned but I think the weather proof part is the...

    Didn't get there this summer because I got really sick and then was busy with research but it is in the plans for next summer!

    Nikki goes around better and happier in her bit than my horse does in a simple loose ring. It's more about the hands than the bit. Ignore the haters! You two are awesome.

    She sure is beautiful! And seems very pleasant in the beginning. Remember, horses are not "bitches" or "assholes". She learned this reaction somewhere. She did not walk out of her stall one day and...

    What a horse/rider does a show is not always indicative of the entire picture. This horse could very well not jump at all at home and only jump at shows. I also agree that it depends what level this...

    Being fat, breeding and gelding late would have been my answers as well.

    Don't know what you talking about. Horse peeps are the best peeps. :cool:
