    I spent about 4 or so years on my TB not doing any warm-up jumps before heading into our 1.20m - 1.50m classes. The footing change at our primary venue (GGT-ish mix in the schooling, grass in the...

    This is a true statement. Two points:
    1) Good luck finding a puissance class at a major show venue, let alone at multiple/many venues, in NA these days. I can think of a couple, but not like they...

    Www.shoesecure.com

    I had a gelding who was pulling his front shoes regardless of which boots I put on him. Shoe secures were the only things that kept his shoes on until he outgrew the issue.

    I also toss my hay (but try to refrain with my cookies).

    PonyPenny - I say that "tossing" is what those of us who are more genteel do ;)

    I agree with SS. It totally depends on how the horse is built. I have a short mare (15.3) and tall gelding (17h) who have exactly the same sized body. I look the same on each of them despite the...

    It is kind of worth reading more than 1 page :D And there are a couple of summaries in the last (maybe) 4 pages or so?

    I don't think it really got derailed until the last couple of pages....of...

    What do you want it for (e.g. only hauling to/from places vs taking it to shows to use as a hang out spot/tack room)? How many horses (and of what size) will you be hauling? How far will you be...

    Oh geez - 2 more full pages since I typed up my post, got distracted, and then hit "post reply" a couple of hours later. Guess this one isn't dying quite yet!

    Very good post, beowulf.

    I want to add to this point. One of the things that was most offputting to me in the e-mail threads was your assertion (in a manic sort of way) that "This pony will NEVER...

    Horses will always be there if you want them to be there. And if you drift away from riding then it is what it is - it's all about priorities and your priorities at any given time trump whatever you...

    That's only if you take what the OP said at face value. Maybe PO offered the tack, which was declined, and then later (maybe even totally unrelated to the tack) said, "I don't think this is a good...

    If bell boots aren't enough you could try shoe secures (www.shoesecure.com). A lifesaver for a young WB I had through a particularly awkward growth phase (as in 5-6 pulled shoes per cycle NOT by...

    I like mine and it has held up really well over a dozen or so washes. My only complaint is that I dislike the magnet in the collar. I like to ride with my collars popped on my show shirts when I'm...

    Yep, I'm with fordtraktor. I don't use a lot of tack. No breastplates or martingales - just a saddle/pads and bridle.

    Also, I don't use boots on my horses (well, my doofy ones live in pull-on...

    Bayhawk has nothing against TBs in sport and I think you're taking his comments the wrong way, Snicklefritz. Given a scopey elastic TB, he would be the first to call it so. Pull out the breeding...

    Only my hard keepers have hay in front of them 24/7. My mares and ponies would definitely blimp out if given the same opportunity. All of mine live out in fields, so have access to grazing 24/7, and...
