    I've been the lucky recipient of some really nice trainer gifts, but the ones that make me smile every time are the handmade items. Stained glass among them, funny enough!

    If the suspensories are thickened in all areas on both legs of a pair, I could believe it's possible the scarring came from use... since the legs each work as hard as the other, it could be possible...

    Grand Prix wool and TechLite... and some Marigold.

    Even a vet who doesn't normally look at gaited horses can pick up on stuff that's not right (hands on palpation, flexions, rads, ultrasound).

    Hope your test ride goes well. :)

    Tryon may well have paddocks when all is finished, but the grounds immediately outside the show/barn area right now is still a very active construction zone. Dirt, clay, dirt and more clay. But the...

    It sounds like you've done a good job being patient and thorough in other areas, so I suggest you keep doing the same with your rides outside the arena. Instead of cantering long enough to let him...

    A thorough PPE would be top on my list of suggestions. It can be really difficult to "read" gaited horses. Because he's not really settled into any particular gait in the first clip, it doesn't give...

    17/33 or 17/34, with +2 flap, are the most popular sizes. As for the model, we sell a lot of Roma Jumps and Versailles.

    Since you're not showing, you'll probably be happier with a pair of paddock boots and half chaps.

    I've never had a problem with a BO charging me for use of the ring (IME, $10-15 per lesson) and requiring me to maintain my own liability insurance. After all, I'm making money by using the...

    It looks like the horse was spooked by the spotlight coming in from the left along the wall. He swaps and heads away from it, and begins to correct but is just too close to the barrier. Ouch.

    Can you get on him bareback? If you don't get the same reaction, it will tell you there's a saddle fit issue.

    If that doesn't change things for the better, my next test would be the relatively...

    If you've ever had an ankle wrapped in an Ace bandage, you'll know that wrapping with correct tension in either direction is comforting and not painful at all. Your Achilles tendon is very similar to...

    Farm House has them.
    It's good to read the positive reviews. I haven't tried one yet, but the concept is certainly promising. My TB is sensitive/fussy with contact, so he'll be a good tester.

    Just call and ask. They have two of their own youngsters under four. Both have already ridden in their first shows. I'm thinking six year olds won't be a problem.

    Personal friends, excellent teachers, safe school horses. Next town over from Middleburg (minutes).

    Calfskin seats and kneepads are just calfskin, but, yes, calfskin flaps are double leather. Glue is always used, and stitching is often used to hold the two layers together (which is why...

    The only thing I could see doing with a long pipe is rigging it on the outside of the trailer ramp/doors. That way, you can take it down without worry about a fractious horse, and it will still offer...

    The A/P suggestion is a good one. IME, if you're already a dressage rider and are comfortable in the position, you're probably going to be happy with trail riding in your saddle, too. But in general,...

    You don't make any mention of tack, but along with desensitizing, you may just need more bit. Making a bigger impression when you say "Stop. Now." may help her realize running off isn't acceptable....
