  1. The way a hunter ultimately goes to win a hunter...

    The way a hunter ultimately goes to win a hunter class is not how an Eventer or even a show jumper should ultimately go, BUT the things good hunters consider important or school are completely...
  2. My retiree is an appy with a sparse mane that...

    My retiree is an appy with a sparse mane that stands straight on end. Even at its longest, it barely flops at the top. It is useless in fly protection, but he seems no more aggravated by flies than...
  3. At the lower levels, I see riders who don't know...

    At the lower levels, I see riders who don't know how to ride an appropriate canter for show jumping. They usually go far too fast and far too flat, chasing the horses for long ones that aren't often...

    It is definitely a nice problem to have! Not one I'm used to, either. It's always been the opposite with him.
  5. Absolutely will not feed TriCounty feeds again....

    Absolutely will not feed TriCounty feeds again. He has been on their Fibergiz d knockoff (briefly, when he and I moved from one BM job to another) and he fell apart, physically and mentally. Not to...
  6. I'm not sure why people keep recommending TC...

    I'm not sure why people keep recommending TC Senior, as I consider parallel to Fibergized Omega. It's what my retired guy eats and what Toby would eat if I couldn't get FO. I want something a little...
  7. Good question. And one I'm asking myself! I think...

    Good question. And one I'm asking myself! I think I figured since he's getting so little, I need to make up the difference in vit/min somehow.
  8. Apparently, I'm out of touch when it comes to feed

    My perpetually somewhat hard keeper has decided this year that he is no longer a hard keeper. He is at a perfect spot now in his weight. I've been cutting back his Fibergized Omega all spring, and...

    Sweaty spots are far less of an issue than hives. He'll be fine!

    I've ridden my noncompete horses around warm ups and hacked around the grounds, where it was ok to ride. Never jumped one, though. I like to hang around the edge of the warm ups on young horses so...

    Jeans are horrible for saddles, especially saddles with soft leather. Time to ride in britches.

    As for the seat saver, personally, not a fan, as I think the affect your seat and don't allow you to...

    I loved my Neidersuess for my TBs. It seemed to fit those withery types well. I was also a fan of the closer contact feel it had (which you may or may not like, if you like a deep seat).

    Several...

    I think if I was doing big repairs on blankets every year, I'd probably reconsider the blankets I was using. I don't mind small repairs every year....there is no way to avoid blankets aging and...

    The problem with Amber Eyes was that she had been competing at the intermediate level of eventing (3'9") as well as the FEI two star level prior to being turned into a hunter. Showing her in the...

    Boyd rides in Stubbens now, I think. I would not take what a pro rides in as testament to the quality of the saddles. Some riders switch saddle sponsors like they change their underwear. There may be...

    I'm 5'3" and find the shorts in MOST coats too short for me. I am long waisted though. It is going to hinge more on how you're built than how tall you are. I would probably go with a regular unless...

    Lots of gymnastics with oxers, and lots of practice? How did you get past the height hang up?

    I've also seen building lots of cross rail oxers help. You can build tall ones or little ones. It...

    I am very meh about them. I'm not a fan of foam flocked saddles to begin with, particularly Devoucouxs. As for the Chiberta itself, if it works, it works. But what is God's gift to someone else's...

    I haven't seen the stadium boots. Didn't know they existed! But did have my hands on the xc boots as I was grooming for a friend at an event this weekend and she uses them. I liked them! Will look...

    These would be for show jumping and show jumping only. We've left our eventing past behind us!

    $2, tips. I'll take him for you. Wouldn't want you to be burdened with such an awful horse ;)

    Funny, I preferred long reins on both Vernon (16h) and Toby (15.3h), so that I had plenty of rein to slip. I used 60" on both of them for my jumping bridles and it worked fine (I always tied a knot...

    This year, we're averaging about a show a month. I wouldn't mind a bit more at the level we're doing, but I'm also happy with the easy pace. When I was eventing and trying to qualify for things, we...
  24. Thoughts on non-neoprene lined open fronts

    My horse has a neoprene allergy, so booting him can be a challenge. He's not one you can slap Woof boots or Eskadrons on and go merrily on your way (unless you then want his skin to fall off). And I...

    I really wish more people working on their own would do this. It is a simple task and doesn't take terribly long and can take a lot of the guess work out of saddle shopping. If you've never done it,...
