    It was my impression that KY couldn't host it because of the KHP's agreement with Rolex. When KY didn't get the bid back in 2014, the rumors I heard were that Rolex was ok with sharing signage, etc,...

    I honestly haven't been to the museum since I was about 13 (I'm now in my late 20s), but back then it didn't take a lot of time. If you're up for trying both, Keeneland really is a beautiful place to...

    I used the Kensington fly boots in SmartBlue and SmartPurple with more success the summer of the destroyed fly socks. This summer and last summer the ground has not been so hard to make me worried...

    My horse destroyed them- like, ripped them to shreds- the third time he wore them. Fail.

    Caved and had a saddle fitter who was not associated with the brand evaluate. WAY too wide- for both horses, including the one it was fit to. My sneaking layperson suspicion that fitters associated...

    He is not built particularly uphill- he is just barely level and prefers to drop his shoulder on the flat and over fences. But unlike the other horse, who the saddle is fit for and goes withers, dip,...
  7. Why is My Saddle Slipping? Brain Fart Moment!)

    I have a jump saddle that is slipping back on one of the horses I'm using it on. It's a medium-narrow that is custom fit to my giant 17 hand OTTB. I use a square pad and a regular Mattes pad over...

    I thought you had to keep your bridle number on your horse somewhere for XC? I always do left side of my bridle or left-hand side of my breast collar. That way if you and your horse part ways, they...

    My view on Perfect Prep and other oral combinations of amino acids and magnesium that are labelled as "calming" is that it does diddly squat if your horse isn't deficient. If your horse is deficient,...

    1. They go around the front billet to help keep the saddle pad in place. I cut them off my pads because I don't find them critical, and I think they're a pain to deal with since I use a half pad over...

    I have a wool cooler from Jack's MFG that I paid very little for several years ago. I also have a couple Irish knits and two fleece coolers. One of the fleece is from Shire's, middle-of-the-line...

    I clip to help them cool out. Also, both my TBs are very prone to skin funk and once it sets in, it is nearly impossible to clear up with their thick winter coats. Right now they are happy in full...

    I'm not sure if they even still make them as I got mine off Tack of the Day a year and a half ago at half the retail price, but my Grand Prix Elites are STIFF. I did the bathtub method (multiple...

    I think I've ordered stuff from them 5 times. I've been happy with the slow, but reliable service except that one of those 5 times, I never got what I ordered.

    I read that different- that she uses a bonnet because she doesn't want to clip her own horse's ears and it covers up the hairy ears. But hey, I could be mis-reading it.
