    I really, really like the Lucky Braids shampoo. You need to curry it into the coat to be all nice and sudsy, but it does a wonderful job on any coat colour. I have also never found it to irritate...

    The Higher Standards products are fantastic, and I'm trying very hard to spread the word about them in my own little circle - most of my horsey friends were gifted a jar for Christmas last year! :)

    For what it's worth, I had the best luck stopping cribbers with a Dare collar. It didn't have to be quite as tight as the other styles, and also didn't seem to rub nearly as badly as some of the...

    Reviving this thread as today I saw a number of these bits and snuck a closer look at them. The ones I saw today were most definitely Myler snaffles (or Myler knock offs) that someone had added curb...

    I have an Arc de Triomphe pair that I really, really like. They're soft, nylon-lined and a good width, both front-to-back and side-to-side.

    Arguments as to whether it's a safe or useful piece of tack aside, I have only every seen German martingales that look like standing martingales that split (i.e. have a neck strap to keep them from...

    Although I can without too much trouble, I don't think I would want to climb on from the ground! I have put enough money into my saddle and keeping my horses' backs happy that I don't think I'd be...

    There are a few barns out our way that use this bit. I think it's just a very pretty Kimberwick set up so that it's quite unobtrusive looking. If it is the same as what I've seen, it really just...

    Just a quick note for those who braid their own - if you put colour in, PLEASE knot under the braid, not on top (or just put the knot on the underside all the time to begin with!). Surprisingly, I...

    Is there any chance that her hocks are sore (or that she's sore elsewhere in her hind end or back) from being fried as a dressage horse (I'm thinking lots of circles, etc), and that the exuberance...

    I've been using the tanners from Paula's choice, and am very, very happy. I'm not the most competent with fake tanners, and using the gel, have yet to come out streaky. The colour also looks like a...

    I too was very sad to hear of such a lovely, supportive lady's passing. I am so grateful for her kind words and suggestions when first dipping my toe into the sidesaddle pool. I was really hoping...

    Can you feel anything in the tree of the saddle that might be causing those two very specific rubs? I saw a saddle that had some screws pop up that did something similar. Flip your saddle over and...

    There are quite a few tack shops that offer a rental program for their Myler bits, so that you can try before you buy. Metlab makes similar bits to the Mylers for a lot less money as well, so you...

    Without having experienced what you are going through, my thought would be that you need to sort out your scalp before you see a dramatic change in your hair. I also wonder if some of the things...

    I think there's maybe a difference between "perfect practice" and striving for absolute perfection while grinding your horse to a nervous pulp? I don't think the two are mutually exclusive. Perfect...
  20. Denny Emerson on the hazards of "Perfect practice"

    Denny posted this to FB this morning, and it really resonated with me. I wanted to share it here as well, and would love to see what people think. It bothers me to see people pick and drill their...

    There's no harm in trying retirement and seeing how the horse takes to it. As GoForAGallop pointed out, it's not a one-way street. If he's unhappy, put him back to work! For what it's worth, I had...

    If you saw me at the one-day clinic at Iron Horse, it was with a freshly dislocated elbow. Can I please use that as an excuse for being somewhat less than effective? ;) I had that sucker taped and...
