    I agree with the "How do you separate the great from the good when the job is so dang easy" problem. It really is one. In fact, it's becoming one in HunterWorld, too.

    You must admit, it's a...

    Me, too.

    But! The best halter for this job is that single ply, comes-pretty-oily, India leather thing. I think Gatsby was the original brand. But the Suffolk one in a link here, and the Riding...

    Does your house smell like "toast…. but somehow better"?

    I used to live in a small Central NY town that sprouted some roasters. On their roasting days, the area smelled great.

    To be fair, the horse who pulls back and panics is at risk in any halter. If equipment breaks, his noggin and withers are at risk, too.

    IMO, horses should be *taught* to stand tied, not made an...

    OP, you chose exactly the right halter: That single ply, cheap (but you can soften 'em) India leather halter is the right one for your intended use.

    I kept horses like yours who needed halters in...

    And the "It will break" or "The equipment won't break" is the big philosophical dividing line in various horsemen's approaches to tying. Using the blocker ring can be seen as a compromise, though...

    Yabbut, the phases of the canter in the "bad" and "good" are different. To be accurate, he would have had to have picked the same one for both.

    I suppose I should be glad to see someone in WP...

    Another mini-update:

    The third VM left worked and I got a call back.

    Homie don't play dat.

    Yanno, I think the guy just gave your SO some leverage: "Pay me the $5k owed, or I'm reporting the attempted fraud to the IRS."

    All right, I'll take the bait.

    Look, if you Repubs would police your own party such that the superlatively stupid were not in positions of power, you wouldn't have to take sh!t from opponents who...

    Sigh. Does the website *say* anywhere that the 5% doesn't apply to some products? When I read other stores' discount fliers, I note the fine print that specifies those exclusions. I think they...

    As I understand it, those 5%-ers do show up… in all times and all places. I'll bet their software is under construction right now and that's why yours didn't materialize.

    I know it's a PITA, but...

    No, no. The OP said she'd pee in a stall.

    But she says "Human poop… forget about it."

    Good luck with that.

    FWIW, I see how the unintended drop of the trow could result in a doozy of a dump,...
