    I used to come from the school of "weight the seatbone to the inside of the bend." Thus, I would sit on the left seatbone for left bend-- in shoulder in, leg yield, haunches in, everything done with...

    Just built mine two days ago, will try to get photos later. We did 9x12' with two 2x6" rails for walls, and used big 8" posts at the corners. The floor is gravel with holey rubber mats on top for...

    I sold a 14.2-and-a-half pony last summer...so very close to the forbidden "hony" range. He had potential to be a large pony hunter, but that half-inch could be a problem. I was upfront with all...

    What have you tried so far? Would just dunking the fleece parts in a soapy bucket of water have a similar effect as the washing machine, without subjecting the majority of leather to possible abuse?...

    Thanks everyone for the nice comments. I don't know why I was grinning in dressage...but maybe it helps boost the score! ;) The plan is to aim for a CIC* sometime this summer and then the P3D at...

    Have to share some excitement from the weekend-- Ranger, my 7 y/o CANTER cutie (sourced from this forum in Oct 2011!) did his first prelim horse trial at Rocking Horse Spring. We had a super weekend...

    I have an older model Amerigo Vega monoflap. I love how close contact it is, it allows me to find my balance in many situations...it doesn't force you to sit anywhere. Leather is great quality,...

    If you have the finances available, do what makes you happy.

    I just recently sold a mare I LOVED to pieces...easy to ride, talented, smart, athletic, just perfect in every way. However, I had...

    What Linny and Laurie said.
    I have been to breeding sheds in Ky many times. Before the mare ever sees the stallion, she will be thoroughly teased by a mutt pony stallion. Maidens are often jumped...

    Well, yes. And Pulpit also died in 2012. But sons of Pulpit may be accessible for sport breeding; mares by those stallions may also be available and would be useful for event breeding. There's...

    Well, I found one but he failed your first criteria. A G2 race stallion, Sightseeing (Pulpit - Resort, by Pleasant Colony) was my choice match to breed my TB event mare. I have a nice 2 y/o colt to...

    A.P. Indy mares are the bomb. Really nice dam he has there. Petionville tends to throw a VERY short back (and slightly chunky), but if you get some leg it can be a nice horse.

    Small sales yearlings are typically looked over. Compared to their bigger, filled out peers, they seem "backward" or lacking in quality. Most buyers are smart enough to check the foaling date and...

    My husband and I acquired "Rosie" from a rescue organization three days ago. She is a ridgeless Rhodesian Ridgeback, about 5 years old, who was pregnant upon arrival at the rescue. All 9 puppies...

    I'd also look to diet and ulcers first. Have you treated her with omeprazole? It can make a HUGE difference for many horses. Ulcers can present in many symptoms, even horses with lots of turnout...

    Yes. In most cases, it's better to focus on the flatwork and Not Jump until you have the calm, obedient horse you want. Keep the jumps low, possibly even just rails on the ground, until the horse...

    We used it in KY TB barns. Clean stall, rake back the straw, dust pee spots with lime. Let air dry while mare/foal are turned out, then re-bed before dinner. Never a problem, but I should add that...

    Overall I like him. Nice front end, nice hind end. The back and loin connection is a bit long and weak. I'd like to see him move. I like the length and slope of his shoulder and placement of his...

    My nice ottb earned a 9 here for his gallop at YEH 5. He definitely has 5th gear; he flattens out and gobbles up ground without any apparent effort. He should be able...

    My experience certainly isn't standard for all TBs, but I can say for sure the yearlings going to Keeneland and Fasig Tipton with established consignors get lots of prep. The cheap ones, or at lesser...

    I won't dispute the science and I know that "anecdote" is not the same as data.

    However, I can list dozens upon dozens of OTTBs-- started under saddle at 18-24 months-- who may or may not have had...

    I wouldn't be so quick to give up on AP Indy for sport. While I'm a bit ambivalent about Slew, Weekend Surprise was a heck of a mare. I've sat on 4 AP Indy descendants, all are super sound, above...

    Nice damline on that stallion. Hopespringseternal was a solid foundation broodmare for Overbrook.

    It's a respectable Cal racing pedigree-- not bad for sport, either, but it is mildly surprising...

    Porters used to be so popular because they could be custom-cut to fit individual horses; they were lightweight and didn't hold water. JAGold's experience is similar to mine: use them with Vetrap,...
