    I'm interested in the responses as well, as I'm beginning to look for new paddocks.
  2. Dry spots there often mean that there is too much...

    Dry spots there often mean that there is too much pressure there; in other words that the saddle is too narrow. If you add padding to a too narrow saddle you will make the fit more uncomfortable.

    If I remember correctly there was a lot of research about keeping horses cool and cooling them down before the Atlanta summer olympics (particularly for eventers after cross-country).

    He was riding the pony on a snaffle too! (With a running martingale). Soft hands, tractable pony, great round.

    The Easy Boot Back Country boots come in a wide size that accommodates round hooves. Same with the Gloves.

    The best thing to do is to measure the hooves in millimetres (not inches), and then go to...

    Probably the usual way: they don't pay their workers very much.

    I have no specific knowledge about Horze as a company, although I think it's based in Finland.

    I totally agree with you about market pricing. I was depending on the knowledge of the person working at the store, and the saddle has clearly been overpriced, at least in terms of that store's...

    I have a TB mare (never raced) who used to be very busy with the bit when she was at all nervous or a little worried.

    She goes in a Micklem and a double-jointed baucher bit that is on the thinner...

    How did I miss this the first time around?

    I too have a TB (mare) who has had these things on her hind pasterns for the last 2 plus years. They're mostly on the lip of the heel right where it...

    It could be encysted strongyles. Have you de-wormed either with Quest or with a Panacur powerpack within the past 6 months to a year?

    When encysted strongyles begin to break out of their cysts, it...

    Get him tested for lyme disease. Irritability and personality change are classic symptoms. Is he lethargic? Has he dropped any weight? Have you checked his temperature?

    One question I'd ask is whether he has the same issues with someone else on his back? If he does, then the problems are not about you or your clicking (or not) with the horse.

    If he doesn't then...

    Everyone is right: you need x-rays. Flexions are not that great of a diagnostic tool, and there could be several different things going on.

    Find a vet that has a good reputation for dealing with...

    Yes, you put the tail through it. It helps to keep the blanket from shifting or from being blown forward over the back if there's a (bad pun coming) tail-wind. Since Amigos and Rambos and Rhinos...

    OP is in South Africa, so shipping a saddle from Vermont would get a little pricey!

    There must be some decent saddle fitters in SA though. It would make sense to get one out to see the horse in...

    I think all you can do is be completely straight with the student in terms of what the various possible outcomes might be.

    You don't mention whether your student is young (i.e. her parents are...

    I have used the Easy Boot Back Country boots on my mare that has very round hooves. They stay on quite well (I've never had them come off, even in deep mud), and aren't as fussy to put on as the...

    It's possible that the OP stopped posting because the problem she has is a legal issue.

    I had a conversation with a saddle-fitter who said that many people ride in too narrow saddles and that the pressure on the nerve just behind the withers is such that initially there's pain, but...

    I did initially try to sell it via a Facebook page before I sent it on to the tack store where it is now. I didn't get any bites, but I'm also not the most Facebook savvy person in the world.

    I...

    Thanks for the responses.

    I think I will leave it at the tack shop for a while longer, and see about lowering the price. It also makes sense just to contact the shop to make sure they know that i...
  22. Consigned saddle isn't selling; what would you do?

    I'm keeping the details out of the post so that it won't be construed as an ad.

    I've had a used saddle on consignment with a major tack store that has a significant online selection of used...

    But if the horse is for sale again, they can't (ethically) keep the deposit, given what we know about the transaction.

    If you think they can keep the deposit, then (hypothetically) what would...

    Whether or not there's more to the story, I don't get why an (ethical) seller or agent would take partial payment for a horse without that partial payment actually buying something, such as a certain...

    He looks much better and much perkier. That's great.

    Keep up the good work with him.
