    I use the foam insulation that is used to line air conditioners. It might be weather stripping--not sure of the exact name. It comes in different widths and thicknesses and works great!

    Sounds more like the poster is looking for ways to reinforce "forward" and/or "in front of the leg" vs lengthening.

    A trot lengthening comes after true balance and engagement, and can't occur...

    The red maple leaf is poisonous. I think the others are ok. If you DO have red maples in your pasture you should have them removed. There is lots of information on the internet if you do a search.

    The proposed rule change doesn't take any of this away! Only if the show jumping makes the two 2" higher fences a requirement--there is no way this will happen. The proposal is currently written as...

    First, I admit I don't have experience with LQ's. That said, 10K lbs seems really heavy to me. The reason is because I looked at a 4 star 2H GN w/ dressing room (no LQ, not 2+1), extra tall and...
