    No need! :) I own both sets of Andis clippers, plus their new 5-speed set. I have clipped 5 in one day using the 2-speed pair with no issue at all. I save the Progress clippers for the disaster...

    Myler pelhams have pretty thin mouthpieces, comparatively with other brands. Plenty of options too, if you want something other than a plain, straight mullen mouth.

    sascha - Yes, that was me on my Dad's mare! We were trying to get an outing in before heading to the Royal for the TB Under Saddle classes. :) Thank you very, very much for the kind words! Your...

    What a fun thread! It's neat to see all the different things that people do with their horses. :)

    My mare is primarily a hunter, but we do a fair number of other things for fun as well. She goes...

    If you don't mind having them custom made and perhaps paying a little more, contact Antares directly. When I had a very specific request to match one of my nice high-end bridles, the company that...

    Instead of snipping the long hairs, pull them. This will start thinning his mane again, and you'll eventually have a manageable one. :) The heavy towel on a damp mane trick is great too!

    I almost feel I shouldn't add to the old thread, but I read things like the posts above, and can't help feeling as though I must have been tricked when I thought I was riding with GM himself. And...

    Thanks findeight. The rule portion makes perfect sense, really. Next rule question - I am assuming that if the horse lowers the height of a fence they have yet to jump, it would be returned to its...

    A bit of a segue, but a few questions about Charlie Jayne's jumper please. First off, does it behave like that in the warm up ring, or just before beginning the course in the actual ring. If it is...

    I addition to what everyone else is suggestion, it's worth making sure that you're not tying your paddock or field boots too tight over the front of your ankle (where everything flexes when you put...

    I really, really like the Lucky Braids shampoo. You need to curry it into the coat to be all nice and sudsy, but it does a wonderful job on any coat colour. I have also never found it to irritate...

    The Higher Standards products are fantastic, and I'm trying very hard to spread the word about them in my own little circle - most of my horsey friends were gifted a jar for Christmas last year! :)

    For what it's worth, I had the best luck stopping cribbers with a Dare collar. It didn't have to be quite as tight as the other styles, and also didn't seem to rub nearly as badly as some of the...

    Reviving this thread as today I saw a number of these bits and snuck a closer look at them. The ones I saw today were most definitely Myler snaffles (or Myler knock offs) that someone had added curb...

    I have an Arc de Triomphe pair that I really, really like. They're soft, nylon-lined and a good width, both front-to-back and side-to-side.

    Arguments as to whether it's a safe or useful piece of tack aside, I have only every seen German martingales that look like standing martingales that split (i.e. have a neck strap to keep them from...

    Although I can without too much trouble, I don't think I would want to climb on from the ground! I have put enough money into my saddle and keeping my horses' backs happy that I don't think I'd be...

    There are a few barns out our way that use this bit. I think it's just a very pretty Kimberwick set up so that it's quite unobtrusive looking. If it is the same as what I've seen, it really just...

    Just a quick note for those who braid their own - if you put colour in, PLEASE knot under the braid, not on top (or just put the knot on the underside all the time to begin with!). Surprisingly, I...

    Is there any chance that her hocks are sore (or that she's sore elsewhere in her hind end or back) from being fried as a dressage horse (I'm thinking lots of circles, etc), and that the exuberance...

    I've been using the tanners from Paula's choice, and am very, very happy. I'm not the most competent with fake tanners, and using the gel, have yet to come out streaky. The colour also looks like a...
