    Keysfins,

    I had GERD (I swear I got it dealing with the INS) and had to take Prilosec every day -under a doctor's orders -not 14 days on. Went on an exercise kick to treat my riding anxiety and...

    I was on prilosec once a day until I dropped some abdominal adipose. Heart burn went away. So maybe figure out why you're having the heart burn and see if you can address that?

    Go for it with my blessings. Adjuncts rarely get to switch to FT. I like to say we're like mistresses; they come to us for the sex and to set up that last minute dinner party but they seldom offer...

    Yes. Fella, my percheron/standardbred gelding has linebacker shoulders and I used one to keep the saddle from sliding back. Now that you have me thinking about it I wonder if it is still necessary at...

    I had a plain phone for 7 years and was very happy with it and did not want a smart phone. I mean I only used the phone to tell people I was late, or lost, or to call AAA or something like...

    I was just reading an article on this on NPR and wrote the following in the comments.

    I think one turn-off from religious institutions is the conflation of politics and religion -on both sides. I...

    Here are some pictures from my flickr page. Profile of me in the saddle and sweat patterns.

    I had a treeless saddle for Fella for a while because he was so hard to fit.

    1. It was quite stable. That very much depends on the treeless you're talking about. Some are like bareback pads with...

    I've been trying to figure out what is going on with Fella and why this seems to work for him. Fella is a draft cross with wide shoulders, a high ish wither, and a short curvy back. Anything longer...

    My trainer came across an old Big Horn flex tree for me to try. First ride today -not bad. I think it's more real estate than the Tex Tan, but I like the front better. The seat is harder than the...

    In my noob opinion it doesn't look that way at all. It looks like your leg would drape straight down for a nice shoulder/hip/knee line. I do notice that Western riders tend to ride in a slight chair,...

    Those are gorgeous! Nice deep seats too.

    Yes indeed -little jumps.

    Indeed. The saddle I'm using is on loan and not for sale. So I'm keeping an eye out for the same saddle to coincide with having money. It is reasonably priced used so I have confidence. The only...

    The horn thing is purely aesthetics. The Wade was okay, but generally I don't prefer the look. Oh and I still want to ride cross country and jump all the things -so no horn.

    I have thought about...

    You guys rock; for your observations about different types of saddles, and your observations about that particular saddle for sale.

    Today I tried a truly Western saddle the trainer had sitting in...

    One thing I want to keep in consideration regarding weight is the total weight my horse is carrying. I weigh 169 so if my saddle weighs 40 then we're talking 204 for Fella who is about 1500 lbs would...

    Thanks, guys. I texted my trainer and she said I wouldn't like it as I prefer closer contact, and that yes, it's heavy. It was one I came across on CL. There's also a tex tan on Ebay that if it's...
  24. Western Saddle Questions -Wade Buckaroo Ranch saddle? Is 35lbs heavy?

    I've been riding in a borrowed TexTan Flex Tex endurance saddle with no horn. My time with this saddle draws to an end and I have to find one of my own. Of course I'm looking for that particular...

    Thank you, Bluey. I'm hoping by the end of the season to have some working versus extended gaits so I could try some Ranch Pleasure!
