    Thanks guys. Exactly what i''m hoping for is one-handed and glove-wearing girthing.
    The thickness is a def a concern-- the elastic ends are quite short-- so would it be like having a dressage...
  2. Anyone have this girth: Lettia Neoprene Clik

    I'm in need of a new girth since I've switched from a long billet to short billet saddle. Love the saddle but have to say I detest trying to girth up with short billets. Part of the hatred is I'm...

    You can use your willingness to write off the debt as a lever to get the horse moved. In that certified letter that someone already suggested you send on Monday, maybe write something like this:

    Oh my god that is grotesque. I've just written my dad who is in NJ politics, to see if he can pull some political levers.

    That sucks.
    If it restores your faith in humanity, I was walking my horse down a road a couple months ago -- just leading her, nothing wrong (but it was howling windy and she was really nervous,...

    I have them on 16ft gates and like others say, they take stress off the opposite gate post. And if the gate's going to stay open, I always rest it on a block so it's not pulling on the post.

    Do you agree that the OP is within her rights to keep using a driveway on land that she no longer owns?

    I'd recommend investing $10 in a couple of these fake security cameras placed in clear line of sight in the tack room and feed area. The thought that she's being recorded would go a long way to...

    Great article on kayaking. It crystallizes what I feel about marathons and running in general-- you learn to embrace and look forward to the hills, or mile 21, or sometimes just mile 4 on a crappy...

    How much clearance between gate and the post it latches to?
    If you have ~3" space, you could use these, which I have for all my field gates (and LOVE!). I can open them even with both arms wrapped...

    Some barn cats remain wide-ranging hunters, regardless the amenities. Ours are all neutered and have heated spots on cold winter nights, food and water every day. A couple cats lounge around the...

    I'd go ahead and enact Plan B for access to the horse pastures, or negotiate an easement. I don't get how it would be considered pissy for the new owner to say you can't keep crossing this...

    That sounds so scary-- to hear him galloping, knowing there are all those wire fences out there. So glad he got lucky!

    I have a table-backed QH -perch X and recently got a Duett Rondo with 38cm tree. Can't say enough good things about it -- within 5 minutes of my first ride in it, she was using her shoulders and...

    Yeah, I wouldn't use PV solar for this application. Can you reduce the size of the tank and fill more frequently? A 16gal heated tub only draws 250W.

    I guarantee that in Tennessee, your cold winter with extended freezes is not the same as northern Midwest winter. So it's all relative. Cost of electricity also varies wildly among regions.

    Consider the cost to run the power, though. Stock tank heaters are usually 1500 watt. If you live in an area with high electricity costs, that will add up fast. As in, $125 or more per month to...

    Last thing-- try to ask the questions in an open-ended way, reassure the seller that you understand that every horse has its imperfections and quirks. They're more likely to relax and open up .

    I like the idea of asking it to do something new-- such as get 3 or 4 steps of shoulder-fore as you come out of the corner. Or a couple steps of sidepass, or turn on the haunches. Just a little,...
