    Only my hard keepers have hay in front of them 24/7. My mares and ponies would definitely blimp out if given the same opportunity. All of mine live out in fields, so have access to grazing 24/7, and...

    My example might be too old to count, but I showed my full QH (1983 model out of halter lines by Little Town out of a mare with a name like Gypsy's Surprise or something) through the Grand Prix...

    I have a 12.2h pony and a 13.2h pony that I (or a helper kid) ride in one of 2 saddles. An old Devoucoux Biarritz (which fits the 12.2h pony beautifully) that's a 16 1/2" saddle and a new County...

    :lol: Glad to know I'm not alone! I haven't ever had a pad wear out, though I have some awfully ratty looking very "well loved" pads hanging around. They just seem to work their way over to the less...

    I'm with Appsolute on my feelings about the new Ariat boots. I have the V Sports and also the Volant S boots. I love them both. The V Sports, however, are my go-to boot on a daily basis. They are not...

    Well for starters, I think there's a big difference between an early 3yo and a late 3/early 4yo (to hunterrider23's point), and my guess is that most horses in the 3' pregreen classes are technically...

    You can search my posts if you want more details, but I have a horse who after 4 or so months on omeprazole (gastrogard and pop rocks both used somewhat interchangeably) developed hind gut ulcers...

    I've added a knee roll/pad to an older flat saddle of mine (well, *I* didn't do it - I had a saddler do it). It looks really nice and definitely made the saddle look more modern (though that wasn't...

    I got Ariat Volant S and V Sport boots around Christmas. Both of them ended up with indentations there for a bit that rubbed my Achille's tendon right above my ankle. Normally I would just stick a...

    If you listened to the audio of that video, George Morris points out (~5:40ish) that the courses back then were not "technical nor delicate like you see today." The courses of today take a different...

    Damnit! Missed the date change buried behind the new posts! ;)

    So I'm curious from those who have new SmartPak breeches - are the rises any lower than they were a year ago? I have old and new EC...

    IME the EC breeches are a much lower rise than the Smartpak breeches and fit differently (my 28 EC breeches are smaller and slimmer than my 28 Pipers). I'm constantly on the hunt for true low-rise...

    For starters, those who know Bayhawk know he is more than just talk, though I'm not going to say more than that because there's no point and he certainly doesn't need my defense. The people who he...

    Generally speaking, a horse can walk the same height fence they can canter. I use it a fair amount with all of mine for a couple of different reasons.

    I have a spooky one who likes to try to stop...

    My Canadian Warmblood mare has all Oldenburgs and Holsteiners in her pedigree. Like "American Warmblood" it seems to be kind of a catch-all registry for all/most warmblood breeds. But I'm sure you...

    In response to the OP, pop rocks ARE omeprazole....just from out of the country and much cheaper (the company is evading US patent laws). People call them pop rocks because the coating on the...

    I agree that it depends on your weather.

    I have an outdoor arena (only) at my farm. I have multiple indoors that are a 10-20 minute drive away that I can use. I haven't hauled anywhere to avoid...

    Hogsfuel (wood chips) works great for a short-term and relatively inexpensive solution for an area that's already a muddy mess. For a longer term solution you'll want to scrape it back down and go...

    I know you don't want to hunt for used ones, but if you're ever over on my side of the water I might have a couple of extra older/used leather halters laying around that I would be happy to hand over.

    I voted "on my own," but that doesn't seem like an accurate way to answer the question, even though it is closest to the truth.
