    Mine goes in a Stubben. Ainsley is another brand worth checking out, and I have a friend with a Barnsby that fits withery horses very well. Rick's has a couple of Jaguar jumping saddles on their...

    You guys look like a really nice match IMO. If you'd like to see someone who's a height mismatch for a pony, here's me bareback on the cowpony I ride. He actually takes up my leg fairly well. He's...

    Question for those of you who choose not to wear a helmet--if you come across someone who insists you wear a helmet on their horses, what's your reaction? I ask because my teenage cousin, who only...

    Considering it's Wyoming, there's a good chance it wasn't photoshopped. I've taken a few out here in South Dakota that look that dramatic and since I'm a technological moron I can assure you they're...

    I don't get carrot face with my crew. I get peppermint head bump, where the old guy headbutts my back or hand if I'm not paying attention to him. My favorite is when he ducks under my big TB's neck...

    I have another one who changed shape as he matured--sprouted up an entire inch between 7 and 8. When I moved him out to the ranch 18 months ago (age 10) his saddle fit with a regular pad and a thin...

    You should make a special soap for LOWERs. Perhaps one with smelling salts for when we feel faint on XC?

    Are her teeth in good condition? How thick are the bits you've tried? My horse doesn't care for a fat bit, and he can also be fussy about the noseband. I ride him in a thin french link d-ring and...

    My garden had quite a good year and I'm currently up to my ears in winter squashes, so I've been feasting on soups. I get so excited for soup season it's ridiculous. I've made one batch of squash...

    I haven't seen it in years. I really should watch it again now that I've moved out to South Dakota. It was filmed on a ranch not too far from my family's place. It really does look like that out...

    My grandmother is adamant that dinner is the noontime meal and supper is in the evening. She's lived in South Dakota her entire life. I eat lunch at noon and dinner in the evening. It drives her...

    Blue if you'd like a little flash, brown if you want to be more conservative. I like flash so I vote blue. Or you could just get both! :)

    Me too! I like the smell but actually eating it.........blech!



    There needs to be some kind of drinking game where you take a shot every time she says things like "salt adds a salty flavor." ...

    I've flown with my dog before. I have a Sherpa bag for him, and he's an excellent traveler. Most of the people near me had no idea I had a dog in there. All the advice here is spot on. I would...

    Ex-BM of busy lesson barn chiming in, and A and A, definitely. Not that I ever minded walk-ins, but it seemed like they always stopped by when I was tied up with lessons/vet/farrier etc. and there...

    Horze Soft Grip half chaps are my favorites. I've abused mine for the last couple of years and they still look pretty decent after a cleaning (or after I throw them in the washer........with regular...

    Kerrits and Tropical Rider. Both have lots of different seat and knee patch options, and nice high rises. Even their low-rise options really aren't very low.

    The two OTTBs I've been privileged enough to own were both free--sound, sane, quiet, pretty geldings to boot. Still not rescues and a lot of people are really surprised by this. I got incredibly...

    My mother calls her two rescue mutts "American Terriers." They're both very cute (like your dog!) and rather unique looking. One is most likely a Cairn/Jack Russell mix who'd been left at a...

    I don't event either, but thanks to COTH I really really want to. :D

    Agree it depends on the horse. Ideally I'd jump my gelding 1-2x/week out of 4-5 rides. My jump schools aren't intensive at all, perhaps 20 jumps max ranging from 18"-3'. However, since I no longer...

    No, I definitely don't have enough Corona in my first aid kit. Blue Moon is another story..........

    Some people on the other thread just don't have enough Corona in their first aid kit.

    I'm sorry to hear about everyone's lost jobs and wrecked cars and split ends. Me, my neck's a little sore...
