    Agreed. I ride with a neckstrap or a breastplate for that reason. I find the straps that go in front of the saddle to be useless.

    And yes, I have had need of those straps!

    Smartflex IV research

    I applaud SmartPak for conducting research on the efficacy of their product (Smartflex IV). I wish more companies would lay it on the line like this so we could all have a better understanding of...

    I agree. If a horse doesn't get grain for a couple of days, it's not a catastrophe as long as there is hay.

    OR, tell the boarders they need to buy hay as a co-op and delegate the task to one...

    I have another technique. I have a friend who keeps asking me to foster, board or keep a horse for her for a "few weeks or a couple of months."

    In both cases, I hadn't seen either horse before it...

    The Power of One (or really anything by Bryce Courtenay) was the first thing that came to mind.

    The second was the Great Gatsby. I've read that multiple times and still enjoy it.

    The third was...

    Most likely is slightly too wide so it's tipping you forward. But it's probably also pinching your horse in your the withers.

    You need to be a bit careful about just lifting the front of the...

    I think your numbers are optimistic. It's not clear where you live, but if you can board a horse for $300/month, you may also be in an area where the top prices for horses on the local circuit isn't...

    I agree, #1 is the best looking of the bunch and looks the most suitable.

    Of course, the brain is equally as important!

    I hunt in the Majyk Equipe front boots and have been very pleased with them. Haven't tried the rear boots, but I like that my horse's legs stay pretty cool with them on and they don't hold mud/water.

    Replacing a seat is very labor intensive, hence the high price. That's also why people use superglue as a repair.

    Personally, I wouldn't buy a saddle with that issue. I guess it depends on how...

    I once missed an event because my horse refused to load. Not sure why it happened that day, but it took me well over an hour to get him on and by then it was too late.

    He never did it again and...

    I have two Kieffer monoflaps. Kieffer told me those saddles were made no later than 1980, probably mid-70s. One had never been on a horse! The other is used but going strong.

    I bought this one...

    I agree with you but only up to a point. A new saddle depreciates the minute it sits on a horse, so I'd rather have someone else take that hit. Now, I enjoy trying different saddles and I buy and...

    Yes, Ainsley saddles are still being made but the new ones are NOT the same quality as the older ones. The old style Ainsley xc saddles are terrific. The quality is very good, they are balanced and...

    It depends on how much you want a new saddle. I always buy used and would do it again. It also depends on what condition the used saddle is in.

    I agree -- make a counter offer.

    Ouch!! I can't imagine spending that kind of $$ on a saddle and finding out it didn't last. I have a saddle that were made in the mid to late 70s that is still going strong. German brand. In fact, my...

    My thought when seeing the first video was stifles. The horse collapsed behind twice and the soreness was more apparent tracking right.

    The horse is also quite long and in the first video has...

    During some parts of the year they row twice a day. To get to the boat house is a...

    I would be livid. Feeding someone else's horse a new feed, plus feeding cubes (there's one horse at my barn that chokes on them) is a recipe for a big vet bill. I doubt the busy body would have been...

    I use a saddle fitter who does not sell saddles. No farm call charge. Generally costs me about $150 to have a saddle tweaked if it's needed and if my saddles are fine, I might have him do a bit of...

    FYI -- there are some options now that are essentially the same as the LG bridle but less expensive. The Orbitless Bridle out of the UK is one and Nickers Saddlery makes another.
