    Some vets that have done PPEs for me, have had the seller sign a document disclosing all prior vet work and health issues. I have never had a seller release vet records, but I have released vet...

    Being in a curb vs a snaffle, and being one or two handed should not affect your scores (unless it affects your riding or your horse).

    Judges want to see clear gaits. At the lower levels they want...

    Show the walk. Free walk and/or on contact.

    When I was shopping this seemed to be the thing that h/j people left out the most, yet is important for dressage buyers to see.

    Are you looking for value of use or resale value?

    For use, 60 by 60 or larger would be useful for occasional riding or turn out. Anything bigger would be great!

    For resale, consider having big...

    If you notice your saddle pad rubbing you may want to try a wool or sheepskin pad, but I have not had this issue even with plain English pads.

    Smaller space tends to mean the courses are more technical/tighter. Less long gallops.

    Millers uses to sell reins that were solid and would do the same thing. I have never seen them in person, just remember them being in their catalogue.

    Are you riding in an English saddle? The western saddle would somewhat muffle the feeling of your seat and leg, so that horse is likely really sensitive/aware of the "louder" seat/leg with the...

    It's not about her not standing at the trailer (she's great), its about not wanting to stand outside in sub zero temperatures while tacking up outside at dawn. I don't do well in the cold.

    I have a lot of issues with cold temperatures, so the less time I spend in an unheated space the better. Also might be hard for me to step up into the trailer with the (heavy) western saddle. Trying...

    I hadn't thought of the stirrups being an issue with possible bruising against the dividers. In theory though, shouldn't I be able to just undo the belvin buckle and take the stirrup right off? I can...

    With a blanket on OVER the saddle, I would think the stirrups will be kept in place and unlikely to catch on anything. Also not likely to be scratched. I should test that the blanket can go over the...

    Do you ever haul your horse saddled?

    Riding in a clinic at the end of the month. Hauling in and out both days. The barn isn't attached to the arena and I didn't get a stall. If the weather is decent, planning to just have Izzy brushed...

    What do you mean by this? I am sure pain is pain, and to a prey animal, I imagine knowing you are less mobile also comes with stress.

    I agree that there is more the OP can try, and that the...
