    Equifit gel bands ASAP!! They will allow her to ride with the blisters without pain and allow the blisters to heal. As someone prone to these type of rubs for some reason (still have scars on...

    I feel like the mid-rise is only an inch or two higher. It is definitely not like the two-way puke green TS of yore which doubled as extra bra-area support.

    I have been at several barns (over the course of the last 20 years) where full care/training were mandatory and there were no price breaks for being on the road 75% of the time. The at-home cost was...

    I have also email shopped with them with good success - just send them a note with what you are looking for (hope they don't hate me for saying that!).

    Doing self-care at a show is exhausting and for me, worth it. I'd rather be able to show more even if it means I am tired while I am there! Between hand-walking, constant stall picking/general...

    I feel like most people who are at WEF for the whole 12 weeks are stabling off site and use the circuit tent stall for convenience.

    To each their own, but I wouldn't want to do a whole month...

    Yes, if she is a junior, she is a junior until December 1st. If she is 18 at that point, that is when she becomes an amateur and needs to start playing by the amateur rules.

    Or maybe your trainer provides more consistent/correct aids for him or she is better at faking them into a frame. Faking a frame is worse much worse than going in their natural carriage as it can do...

    My horse will take off standing wraps in very short order and duct tape is no match. Lots of hand walking after jumping (or turn out if possible) and if a heavy workload, ice followed by poultice. ...

    This part is what makes me say no. If the horse was the deal of the century or even the decade, the risk may be worth it. If the horse is priced similarly to what it would be without the chips,...

    If the bell boots aren't rubbing him, there is no harm in leaving them on while you ride. The Velcro ones make me a bit more nervous because the Velcro eventually weakens and a horse can trip...

    I still use my brushes from the State Line Tack catalog from 1990. My Baker sheet was $15 in 1994 from a newspaper classified ad and is still going strong!

    I probably wouldn't upset the apple cart about the stirrups being pulled down - agree it is not ideal, but stirrups can pull off saddles so not the end of the world. I like right horse's approach to...

    I really like the new vented Eskadrons. They are very light weight and are more breathable than most boots - the legs are still warmer than wearing nothing but markedly cooler than wearing other...

    It will depend on your build. I am a 28 in TS and a 26 in Ariat. I prefer the 28 in the Piper. Order both sizes and take advantage of free return shipping! I am definitely a 30 in Equine Couture.
