    I had the Mirena inserted a year ago, and I love it.

    Having it put in was really not pleasant, not going to lie. I have a good pain tolerance, and this was about a 9 for me - had to get my friend...

    I had tried the sheepskin sleeve and it just wasn't doing it for me, got bunchy as my girth is a contoured one. I was hoping to find one with good removable sheepskin or even a really nice synthetic...

  6. Fleece lined leather girth - who makes them and where to get one?

    I'm having a super hard time finding a black leather girth with natural sheepskin lining! I've seen a zillion synthetic ones but leather is seemingly impossible. Any leads on where to find one? Also...

    I was faced with making a similar decision on my older TB a couple of years ago

    He was 16 at the time, and I had changed my focus to dressage. This horse LOVED to jump, to the point where he would...

    We have tried turning the whole herd in and leaving him alone... He truly could care less. The other problem is that the fields are so large I'd need 10 people to be able to herd him and catch him :(

    Uncatchable horse

    With the warmer weather, my barn has moved the horse into the grass paddocks and the turnout hours have been extended. My horse has never been easy to catch, but now he's impossible. The fields are...

    Oh! Sorry for the confusion!

    Most barns are only offering hay in stall (am and pm) and nothing outside during winter. Grass in summer as long as it grows. Not sure how keen I am on that idea...So...

    Thanks for the input everyone

    I have a pretty long list of demands, not only for myself but my horse. I'm coming from a really high end facility with all the amenities and it's hard to compare...
  14. Barn shopping... What are your deciding factors?

    If you're looking for a new barn, what are your deal breakers?

    Due to a move, I'm commuting much too far to my current place, and while it's lovely, it's just too much to do the drive and pay the...

    Thanks everyone

    I bit the bullet and put my horse in training so I finally will have the schoolmaster I always wanted ;)

    Right now I'm just riding in half chaps, and when I showed just had...
  17. Buying first pair of dress boots - what do I need to know?

    Well, it seems I will be requiring new boots to show in this summer. I've never actually owned dressage boots before, only field boots for hunters way back when. What brands are best? Also do I need...

    I'd take option #1. As much as I hate to say it, money opens so many more doors.

    She battled degenerative myelopathy for longer than we thought she ever could have, and it broke my heart to watch her slowly succumb to the disease. Yes...

    I had a used one on trial from my tack shop - apparently they are made by people that used to work for prestige. It was a lovely saddle, although quite heavy, and it did not work for me. I'm 6' and I...

    It seems like every horse I buy is an impossible fit! I've got an Albion coming on trial in the next week or so and have emailed the Black Country rep. As for county, I'm not a fan and their rep left...
