    Thanks for all the feedback. It's so good to hear about hunters using Wintecs in the field, because I tend to think of hunters as the ultimate pragmatists and it just makes sense, what with wet,...

    It seems like I've heard or read that if you use a Wintec saddle, you cannot use stirrup leathers or a leather girth, but have to use the Wintec versions instead--something about oil from the leather...

    Good to know about the CAIR. The concept certainly makes sense, but I guess your mount gets to decide whether it works or not.

    The most attractive synthetic product out there seems to be Tekna, but I suspect that fitting-through-heating process could be inconvenient to fiddle with.

    Thanks, sonomacounty, but which are you talking about, the Pro or the 2000? I don't think they're the same. MapleMeadows refers to the 2000, but it looks to me like that model might only come in CAIR.

    I've about made up my mind to replace (or complement) my Stuebben Wotan with a Wintec and was trying to figure out exactly which of the current models is the right one to get. If it would be...

    Thanks for all the feedback. To clarify about my goals, what I would like my mare to be able to do is BN (and perhaps N, later) eventing, which obviously has an elementary dressage component.

    I...

    transition from draw reins

    I realize people have varied opinions about the use of draw reins. Leaving aside the question of whether they should be used at all, how often, etc., I could use input about this training situation:...

    Such belts are called "surcingle belts," because they're derived from surcingles/overgirths, right? Or are surcingles and overgirths not the same thing?

    I see poetic justice on the horizon for hunt saboteurs in the UK.

    "Foxzilla," the headline will read.

    WL grew up in an academic home and acquired his diction thereby. He is very near 40 years of age, and such hair as remains to him is, in fact, mainly gray. He has tended to wear his sunscreen,...

    Everyone keeps encouraging me to go, but it seems like too big an investment to me--trailering from NV, livery and capping fees for three days, etc.

    Well done, Beverley! That's your humble scribe on the pinto in photo #1, etc., and--yes--near the end of the video arguing that he does not owe another bottle because his dismount was voluntary.

  21. Horse bowling at Red Rock, Christmas Eve 2010

    Among the most satisfying things about hunting I've discovered is that you’re always learning new things, sometimes of the quite unexpected sort--for instance, that a rolling 18 hh pinto makes a most...

    Red Rock is amazing, not least because guests are always welcome.

    In any case, I'm glad to find such a receptive audience for my hunt reports.

    Fourth hunt--Red Rock Hounds

    Well, it started out inauspiciously. I was halfway up I-80, the snow was showing no signs of abating, and just as I had gotten my chains on and was starting to think I might make it over Donner Pass,...
