  1. I did it... I put on my big girl panties

    I rode as a kid in the 70's and 80's, so this was a big deal to me today. I never had the opportunity or finances when I was younger to ride with a top trainer I have admired for years... well today...

    That's exactly what I was thinking when I was watching it!!!

    Looks like a very talented and sensitive horse! Maybe not a good day for this rider or maybe they just are not a match.

    I love All detergent with stainlifters - Oxi.

    Wash in cold with ONLY my clothes. I don't add anyone else's clothes or towels etc. And hang dry. I hang dry all my clothes.

    The shirts seem to...

    I understand how they change. I purchased this horse as a three year old and he's now six.

    I haven't had any luck with temporary saddles but for some reason all my horses I have had over the...

    My boys will get them off so often (and they take each others masks off) I started calling them a $20.00 horse toy!

    One of my horses ears are a bit large so the ones with the ears will rub the...

    Yes but not for 2,000.00

    I purchased a Meyer saddle last year and I LOVE it for my wide, flat backed horse. And he loves it too. Worth saving up for.

    I hope you can find something that works....

    Oh that's not good to hear... one of mine is five years old has stretched a little.

    I have washed them in Bedadine. So far no smell. I used the Bedadine because I have lent them out and thought...

    I used a Beval with the removable sheepskin for many years. Then I bought a horse that was girthy and tried the Mikmar girth. I will always use this girth.

    Got one for my other horse and they...

    I would contact a few good saddle reps and have them come out to fit you and your horse - even if you don't plan on buying new; sometimes they have demos for sale or could make you a good deal on a...

    I saw this thread and thought of the video you posted. I think that is a great video.

    And yes, look at the top rail! :) For the lower Hunter jumps I just don't look very long... It feels to me...

    I agree and suggested the same thing but her response was boarding is not an option.

    For some reason this thread is bouncing around a bit.

    You think she is herd bound then later you say she isn't.

    ^ Yes

    Where you talk about "needy" those in my experience have been the ones that do act like this. I have had other horses that were more of the leader type and I could take them anywhere...

    Without being there but reading your post it still seems like she is herd bound. When alone she forgets about them then sees them and wants to be with them; as she displays the behavior.

    I agree...

    Please don't give Gastroguard without scoping her first. One of my horses had a huge colic adventure after giving Gastroguard. Vets are also on to this as well....

    By your description she sounds...

    It's good to research and try to be on top of your horses health. I wish I knew and could help more. Sounds like you are keeping an eye on the fit and the horse is happy.

    I don't know how much I agree with this. Several of my saddles don't leave that mark and they fit great.

    IMHO, if the saddle is well balanced with rider in the seat that kidney shaped pressure...

    I understand the dry areas are where pressure is greater. And that's not what you want.

    Get a shimable pad and play around with it to see if you can get an even sweat pattern. Try/borrow...

    :(

    So not only did you not get to show the horse you pay for; but someone else showed him, charged you for braiding, grooming and riding and kept the prize money the horse won?

    I am changing...

    I feel so bad for you. It's hard when you are just loving the horse. I think you need to have a sit down with the trainer.. be sincere and just tell her how you feel. Come up with a written...

    Yes agree...

    The Trifecta Thinline is not as thick as the Sheepskin. It is a cotton material; slightly quilted underside and just has the sheepskin edging to give it the look of the sheepskin.
