    I've used the Shoe Secures too for my TB that pulls shoes like crazy, and he never lost a shoe with them on. They're a bit of a pain because you have to drill and tap the shoes to attach them, and...

    If you use a de gogue when riding, you are supposed to remove the yoke piece, and instead snap the ends of the ropes that go through the bit rings to a second set of reins. That way the rider can...

    My favorites in this price range are the Romfh Lexington breeches. They do have velcro at the bottom (which doesn't bug me, but I know some people hate). They come in different lengths, euroseat,...

    I've had two excellent running buddy dogs with the size and temperament you are looking for, both mixed breeds. My first was a black lab/hound cross. Energetic and friendly, but would be protective...

    Saddleright makes a great one and they have a lifetime guarantee. I've used one for many years and lots of people in our barn have them (local tack store sells them). Hideous web site, but great...

    I have a very oval shaped head, and recently got a Tipperary Sportage for schooling. My show helmet is a charles owen AYR8, which fits great and is more oval than the GR8. I like the Ovation helmets...

    I had a pair of the Devon Aire signature breeches. I thought they were really cute, but they were less stretchy than the trophy hunters or the smarkpak pipers, and fit a little tighter in the thighs...

    I wanted to agree with Calvincrowe that the fees seem high for this area, compared to the barn I ride with here in the PNW (small barn but showing on the A/AA circuit) and other barns I have ridden...

    I did the Wisdom panel testing on my two mixed breed dogs, and got results that sort of made sense for one dog (who we were told was a lab/hound cross, and looks like it). Her results showed lab and...

    I have a two pairs of the Tuffrider soft shells and love them. Warm and the fabric doesn't pill at all. They are cut very low rise, and for me are big in the waist (so I wear a belt and they work...

    I tried a pair of the Tuffrider Unifleece breeches and they pilled so horribly that after the 2nd or 3rd wash I never wore them again and actually threw them away. Too bad because they were very...

    I have a horse that over steps and rips off his front shoes too, and I finally found something that works 100% to protect his heel bulbs and keeps his front shoes on. They're called Shoe Secures....

    Most likely it took awhile to get a tear like that, so it probably wouldn't destroy it to ride in it while you're saving for the repair. You try some sort of seat saver to protect it from further...

    Yes, I think it's brand new, and in addition to the removable liner it sounds like it has a lot more ventilation than their other models. Generally the Charles Owen helmets fit me well, but the GR8 I...

    I'm planning to get a new helmet this summer and the Charles Owen V8 sounds great from the descriptions. Has anyone tried one out or got one? Thanks!

    Romfh international breeches. Breathable and cool, and decent color selection (beige is a very light tan, the mocha - which looks awful in online pics - is actually a really nice taupe, and the dark...
