    It's not that big of a deal when you deploy it accidentally. It blows up, makes a bit of a funny noise. Re the cost, funnily enough the child's size medium actually fit me better than the adult, and...
  2. To the person who said it has not been proven to...

    To the person who said it has not been proven to reduce broken bones, that's an interesting statement. I am not sure how you would do control tests, since it would be pretty impossible to get two...
  3. Fellow 50+ riders, why not wear a safety vest? Why wait till you break?

    I had a rather bad fall about a year and a half ago, broke three vertebrae (luckily just the spinous processes) and a rib, falling on my back on a jump rail. Was really rather painful. I recovered...

    That's great they're starting to take them! I missed shownet last year. It's really helpful to watch your round and see what you need to improve.
  5. Hard bumps in saddle area - how to get rid of them?

    I have a 5 yr old TB, when I got him he had a number of hard bumps in his saddle area. My trainer said it was from dirty saddle pads and that if we just used clean ones they would go away. Tried...

    Those Tekna ones have neoprene lining, have some sensitive horses that are allergic to neoprene. It's not the best when it's hot either.
  7. Open-front jumping boots and matching hind ones

    Am thinking about asking for these for Xmas since I need another set. I think I'd prefer brown to black to look more traditional. I was considering these Equi-fit EXP2 open front boots in brown, but...

    I am currently freezing in MA, but heading down to FL soon, for Christmas and then weekends for WEF, so needing to stay cool.... sorry!

    I had the "old" 2G, as well as a Devocoux. Love the 2G because it helps keem my leg in the right place, especially over big jumps. It is a bit challenging to adjust your girth from the saddle, but...

    I emailed Abler to ask whether they are still shipping to the USA after the FDA warning letter, and whether or not they are applying for registration in the USA, and this is the reply I got:
    Hi...
  11. Anyone tried "ice" shirts that are supposed to cool you down?

    And if so, what brands and do they really work?

    We looked at a bunch of 6 month leases (to cover WEF circuit with a bit of cushion on either end) and they were all $30K for 6 months. That's more than the 1/3 purchase price rule, all the horses...

    Alan Korotkin of Castlewood Farm does that kind of weekly lease, I think the fees are up on his website. He might be someone who could help get the OP's horse leased out too.
  14. Thanks for the advice!

    Thanks for the advice!

    She has a tendency for the right front to get sore if she shows/jumps too often. I have a really good farrier (has shod at WEG, master farrier etc, so really trust him). Have had her front coffin...

    Funny you should mention that. My trainer (who is in VA, so advising remotely) keeps on suggesting I pull her shoes for a few months, the problem is where we are it's a bit rocky, and also in order...

    Thanks for the notes re Epona shoes, sounds pretty decent. Was thinking of trying them for a horse who tends to get a sore right front in particular, she has had her front coffin joints injected a...

    I agree it sounds like EPSM, but what to do about the diet besides giving her the ReLeve Concentrate which as far as I know is the right food? Someone said "add more fat" - what kind of fat and how...

    Thanks, teeth were done by reputable vet/dentist in August, also checked saddle fit.

    I am definitely thinking of sending her somewhere to chill for a few months. Also would be tempting to take her...
  20. She's being treated by a very good and...

    She's being treated by a very good and knowledgeable vet (but he seems to have run out of ideas too). She is usually on grass during the day (not super lush, but enough for entertainment, we live in...
  21. Anyone tried Epona or Equiflex shoes?

    Did they make any difference? Do they stay on as well as steel shoes or need replacing more frequently?

    I get it from Wedgewood, very reasonable price, around $60 for I think it's a 100ml bottle of 150mg/ml strength, so it lasts a while. (we give 5ml per week).

    There's a massage envy in Wellington that has some really good therapists. I don't remember all the names of the ones I like (and I usually prefer males because they usually use more pressure), but...
