    It unfortunately has sheepskin, but the Nunn Finer is quite nice for the money and their rubber reins are to do for. The Beval Conquer is very nice too.

    Paste electrolytes and if it helps your horse drink, hydration hay or a horse quencher type product.

    For you, coconut water and keep face wipes/sunscreen in your cooler. Feels soooo good to wipe...

    Also worth a call to Horseman's Exchange in Littleton, MA. It is a local business so I would imagine they would ship to you, and they have a good selection of mid-price point used saddles (and used...

    Different barns. The one with $1900/ month full care does not offer self care or training board. It is hands down the closest to downtown Boston, hence the cost. The full training prices are at...

    Stick to the short/long stirrup division. The green horse division will have a lot of green horses that are ridden by professional riders. You will be better off competing against people who don't...

    Agree, it was starting to be a "thing" in my late junior years in the 90s and is now mandatory at many shows up and down the east coast. They post a chart on each horses stall and come by X amount...

    There are some people who will rig up a strand of hot wire around the top perimeter of the stalls of stallions. Perhaps this is the security system that failed.

    How old is your mare? If she's 4 or younger, I would really keep the jumping to a minimum both in terms of height and frequency.

    How often do you ride now? How many days per week would you ride if you owned a horse? If you have been taking weekly lessons for 6 years and that's it, a half or even full lease is a great way to...

    I agree it is the exceptional horse that is ready for the 5/6/7 year old classes rather than the rule. The developing horse classes that some shows offer for 4-5 year olds that are at a meter seem...

    No, so long as you don't ride any of the horses that are at the barn that compensates you (besides your own). Grooming in and of itself does not make one a professional but riding horses that you...
