    Shipping

    Thank you all....I got one quote of $400 which was a bit steep for me. But I'll ask the seller to use the Royal Mail.

    International saddle shipping

    I want to bid on a hard-to-find saddle on Ebay...but it's located in the UK. Does anyone have experience with shipping saddles to the US? Can anyone recommend a shipping method? Some of the quotes...

    Saddle width?

    I'd like to buy a used Albion K2 (jump) saddle but think I may need a N. Since there are few (if any) Ns on the second hand market, would I be making a big mistake in buying a NM? I've heard that...

    Spring misbehavior

    What is it about a windy day in March which causes otherwise sensible horses to be naughty? Seriously naughty?

    Roxane versus Quantum?

    Know it's a question of which fits best, but does anyone have thoughts about these two saddles? From the standpoint of quality, etc? I currently have the Quantum, but think the saddle is a little...

    Where to post a "Wanted" ad?

    I've been monitoring the usual sites which list used saddles....but can anyone suggest where I can post a "wanted to buy" ad? I'm looking for a specific Stubben model.
  9. Kicking out

    My little mare, generally a sweet thing, will kick out if something is very hard for her. She's young, but you can almost hear her saying "This is HARD. I don't WANT to do this....you can't MAKE me...

    Insurance?

    Can anyone recommend an equine insurance provider? My horse's policy is up for renewal, and I'm looking for a better price.
  12. Recommendation

    Just bought a SmartPak turnout...and it's very nice. And in your price range. Gotta add, however, that my mare is not hard on blankets.

    Get in touch with Berney Brothers in Dublin. Really nice saddles at a decent price, and they do wonders with tracings.

    HF versus RF?

    I'm assuming that HF means the horse fell. But what's the difference? Is it a question of whether the rider's shoulders touched the ground, or something?

    Andis T-84

    Was disappointed with my first clip of the year: even with spanking new blades, the clippers just slowed down to a crawl in the heavier parts of the coat. And it clogs SO quickly. You spend more time...

    Five year old sillies?

    Please tell me that this is a phase? My quiet, gentle 5 year old mare is showing a bit of attitude. Nothing lethal, but surprising. She is part pony, but I don't want to blame her antics on that. Can...

    AREA II BOARD

    These are all such great suggestions -- although I sense a common thread. Horse is a Connemara-TB and loves to nap. (I suspect she's like a teenager, and needs her sleep.) But I do need a more quiet...

    Thanks!

    My long-suffering trainer often has me canter before starting a flat lesson. Just to get the little stinker thinking "forward." But thanks for the responses. I am going to try Janet's suggestions...

    Low-key

    She is better with spurs, but seems to canter just to humor me. When I stop riding like a pony clubber, she slows to a trot. Better in the field, but only marginally so. I end up expending more...

    I've got a 5 year old mare who, frankly, would rather not canter, thank you very much. Her attitude seems to be, "why should I expend all this energy?" While I don't want a fire-breathing dragon, how...

    The other option might be to look at housing in Leesburg or Ashburn. Both are west of where you'll be working, but might be less expensive than Vienna. And there are quite a few boarding barns in the...
