    Also look up how to apply KT tape for (maybe?) groin strain. I did mine earlier this year riding through a spook on a narrow horse. Someone watching had used KT tape on a similar injury and managed...

    This is helpful; thank you both! I could not tell from the descriptions if they were the same thing or if there was any overlap at all.
  3. "On the Levels" DVD vs onthelevels.com subscription?

    Ok, I'm preparing to venture into dressage show land later this year and want to work on my test riding skills and understand better what is expected/the ideal for each level. (I do work with a good...

    I just bought and really like the Kerrits Competitor Koat--my first technical fabric show jacket! I'm 5'10", long arms, broad shoulders and ribcage but not overly gifted in the boob department, and...

    Thank you for summing it up so perfectly! This is what I need also. And I KNOW that we can't just remove negative stuff--we have to replace it with positive--but somehow 'hearing' it put this way...

    I wash all our technical stuff in warm water, cold rinse, Oxiclean in the wash, white vinegar in the fabric softener compartment every couple washes. Occasionally an extra rinse. (We have hard water...

    Is Petticoat's Advance still there (near An Otherwise Perfect Farm)? I boarded there 15 years ago (!!) when I needed an indoor to rehab a tendon through the winter, and although they mostly had a...

    I like rubber reins (covered for jumping, lined for dressage) but they do tend to melt quickly here in FL, between sweat, fly spray, and humidity.

    Earlier this year bought some Tekna reins; so...

    Ulcers perhaps? You said he's a bit of a worrier, and has had major changes in what sounds to have been a relatively sheltered life so far. With ulcers they tend to get reactive on the left side near...

    I agree with a lot of the other comments. She does need to learn how to communicate respectfully, even (especially) if she's disagreeing or frustrated with something. Vital life skill--so many people...

    I have two questions so far, have not followed too closely as, frankly, it hits a bit too close to home for me with 2 small children.

    1. I am far from an expert on course design...but I took a...

    I would also add--what we are comfortable taking on also can vary with time and what else is going on in our lives. So, don't feel like a quitter or like you aren't as good as you were if you decide...

    TOTT--I have a Marcus Krehan that is out of your budget, but I haven't gotten around to listing it yet, so you are welcome to try it and borrow it for a while if it works for both of you, so that you...

    I too would suggest a Myler comfort snaffle (THIS is a D ring, and is the one I have, but it comes with different cheeks.

    To add: Patty had a custom Black Country made for me and my weird horse that is heavenly, for just a bit more than your budget. The Solare model feels a lot more like the French saddles for the...

    Where are you located roughly?

    Two thoughts: (1) you may be able to have the tree adjusted on the County that you bought; or (2) if 3k is your budget, I'd be on the phone with Patty Merli to get a...

    I've adopted a model of owning 2-3 helmets at any given time. Right now, I have 2 schooling helmets and 1 show helmet. That way if I have an unplanned encounter with the ground (as I did recently) I...

    My older mare with a low (practically flat) palate and fat tongue ended up really liking the Myler comfort snaffle, with the wide barrel middle link. For years prior to trying that, the best bit I'd...

    Patty Merli isn't based in Ocala, but makes regular trips there--I'd check with her and see if your schedules coincide. :)

    Get a good saddlefitter in (if you give us an idea of your location, we can probably help with recommendations). Patty Merli was able to adjust my Passier GG to fit my quite flat-backed mare...

    Maybe try German ebay? I bought a saddle from Germany (via ebay) years ago and it was painless.

    Lead with your belly button. That's my favorite mental image.

    YB--perhaps check with Hilda Donahue. She's closer to Orlando, but I would think she is likely to know some of the options outside Tampa.
