    Thank you all for the suggestions and information! It looks like this is a common problem that should resolve after further break in and isn't just the Ariat brand. Looks like I'll keep them, do the...

    Hello! I finally purchased myself a lovely pair of Ariat tall boots (volant sport I believe) and have ridden in them maybe 3-4 times. They are soft boots, and seem to have dropped a bit already, but...

    That isn't very supportive, but unfortunately it is a common and dangerous misconception that someone with a diagnosed disorder does not need medication. It is possible to "talk yourself out of"...

    I'm not much of a farter, but when I get a good one coming I run straight for my man and let it rip on him or as close as possible. This is my justice for the countless times that he farts on me,...

    Whoops, just noticed that you figured it out.

    When I slammed my finger in the car door, I had to hand drill a hole in it with my dad's drill bit. Yes, hand drill it. It hurt like hell but once I...

    It is probably just swelling from internal blood that wasn't released when the doctor poked the hole in it. I wouldn't worry about it for at least a week, unless the pain really increases. Most...

    Basic principles of health and the human body. It's your body, try to understand the basics of how it works. I work in healthcare and it is alarming how little some people know about this.

    My horse is an ass and would bite anything within reach, including other horses and some choice people. These stall fronts would give him too much space to cover with terror. :lol:

    I love skiing. As much as riding horses. Yup, it's true.

    Of course I live in Florida for the time being so skiing occurs only when I have piles of money to spend. Let me tell you, it's been a...

    I don't leave a saddle area when clipping and my sensitive gray hasn't had trouble before.

    I recently purchased a used Dominus brand saddle. Bruce Davidson version maybe? Anyway, it's older but has a great open, flat seat. Solid saddle for less than $800. Mine has a pretty wide tree for my...

    Ha! My horse works a maximum of a couple hours 4-5 days a week. Usually I'm so busy working 40-60 hours that he may only have to work 2 hours a week.

    I'll trade him work schedules any day.

    Plaited reins

    Does anyone know of a place to order plaited reins from? I've seen the Stubben brand ones once but was hoping there were other options out there as well.

    I've always wanted to spoil myself with a...

    I work in an ER. There are far more crazy folks out there than you're led to believe, horse people or otherwise.

    On the other hand, I can stand on top of my horse (kids are prone to poor...

    People with vitamin C deficiencies get cracked lips, but I doubt that is the issue here. Just thought I'd toss it out there.
