    I'm on the fence about covering my maiden mare LC on her next heat - which will be any day now. Our May here this year was cold and wet. I think June and a bit warmer would be safer and less risk...

    Look for the green water cooler jugs. They are meant to be crushed and recycled not refilled so they crunch nicely and don't seem to be sharp enough plastic to cut if a horse tears them. We have a...

    Offer to teach her what you can. Safe handling, tacking up etc. If I have a parent who is happy to help with chores, helping other kids or their own tack up, helping gets horses in and out of the...

    I have two anatomic girths, neither the TSF brand but same idea. My draftX mare has a forward girth groove and an anatomic girth makes a noticable difference to where the saddle sits. The other...

    I'd love to know where to find one for $200!! In Ontario you can barely find Counties at all let alone an older one for a fair price. Dressage saddles, but not jump, that's for sure.

    I think I'll...
  8. Anyone converted a plain flap saddle to a padded flap?

    Hey All

    I bought a County Pro-Fit online after trying one out from a local shop. My mare loves it and although its not a perfect fit for me, it certainly is a good 'for now' saddle while my 5...

    Can anyone send me a picture of a set of kicking chains for above the hocks? I'm only familiar with the usual fetlock ones and my mare has decided that kicking the wall is fun. She caught her door...

    Gotzon you'd probably LOVE Lucinda Green. I adore her methods of introducing things slowly and building up, giving the horse time and physical ability to look at things, sniff etc. I am hoping to...

    Wow, I remember when Pro Choice SMBs were all the rage and were used extensively by eventers. I suppose that was also back when Porters were 'in', and those petal bell boots.
  13. Looking for feedback: Mark Todd Calvari Generation saddle

    Hey all

    I am slowly starting to saddle shop since my saddler says my 17" Stubben is a smidge too small for me :( It works well enough on the horse considering she's young and likely to change...

    Wish I could share pics on here. She came through the night well. I slept in the barn so I could treat her first thing before I had to go to work. I had her wrapped overnight, so unwrapped, lunged...

    So far she's doing really well - bute kicked in and by 3pm I had her walking 10 minutes then trotting in and off for 10minutes. I've been using a salt water wrap, which works like a salt poultice...
  18. Who successfully treated lymphangitis and what did you do?

    I pulled my mare out of the field today around noon and her back leg was fat from hock down, normal at the fetlock and pastern. Pretty warm to the touch but not too sensitive, she is sore but walks...

    I would sooner not go to an opening then to go un-braided. To me its an absolute must, although I don't usually do tails I admit that. The other regular meets I don't braid and I would not have the...

    This would be my concern also. That if he doesn't sue he won't have any $$ for rehab. Public care in most countries is pathetically insufficient for brain injuries. I'm going thru something similar...

    Yes I've heard great things about Kintons too. Worth a try. With this mare we tried a mechanical hack and a snaffle with two reins as a combo set up and it was a good option in the ring but she would...
