    Not exactly, but I grew up with a pickup/camper pulling a 4h bumper pull. Now I have a 4h LQ. Both work just fine for our needs. The pickup/camper combo was probably easier to get around (I wasn't...

    Thank you for this! Can't wait to try these. Tired of mail ordering polos that turn out too thick and slippery. Breaking them in helps but just not ideal for me. I love an excuse to buy something...

    Contracts people, contracts!!!! Spell everything out in advance!

    But anyway, OP, I know it's frustrating trying to get weight on an old horse. I can't imagine trying to inrease weight on an old...

    I'm so sorry, OP. I truly think the agent scammed you from the get-go :( It upsets me to say that. I am an agent as well and I've heard lots of negative sale stories, but this one is just plain...

    In general, I never use one. I never show in one. But I have done endurance in the past and always used one for my endurance horses.

    I've ridden many horses with a club that have not had lameness issues. If the price were such that it was worth taking a chance, I don't think it's a deal killer.

    OP, I feel your pain, as I have two 30-year olds. I do think the early thin spring grasses that dry up quickly are better for mine than the normal, longer-season grasses. That said, for one of my...

    I recently purchased a Skito pad that fills in the hollows behind the shoulders and the low part of the back. It has taken some trial and error to get it to work for different saddles/pads, but it...

    OP, hunters aren't a big thing in the Arabian world. That said, Kristin Hardin from CA might be able to give you some insight on marketing him and may even have a buyer for you.

    It sounds to me that you're saying she got worse when started being pushed? I would tone it down a bit and push a little less. I know that can be frustrating, but then you'll be able to tell if...

    I'm a huge fan of Suave. It gets sudsy and rinses easily, even in cold water. My absolute fave shampoo is Ultra from Schnieders, but for regular at-home washing I've used diluted Suave for decades.
