    In general, saddles with narrow twists don't tend to be squishy for the booty region. There are both occasional Tads and Butets that break this rule, but they are outliers in my experience. Good...

    I'm about 5'10, size 4-6 depending on the day and have a super long hip to calf, but a pretty normal calf. Right now I ride in a 17" County Innovation with a long and forward flap. Prior to that, I...

    Tad Coffin - should work well for you and the horse. An older Butet may fit the bill as well. I don't think of Bates as having a narrow twist.

    I've heard decent things about Verrill for a very low-key introduction to riding. I think Medway may be an easier drive from Newton, though. I work in Newton and found going due west/slightly south...

    Another vote for Saddle Rowe, although it may be a bit of chaos there for the next few weeks as their new indoor just burnt down last week, along with their office (no injuries to horses or humans,...

    Glad to hear it! My guy has never gotten sore at the injection site but he's a pretty stoic type. I've been told to use a 1.5" needle because a shorter one can lead to a raised area at the...

    I've never noticed any soreness from it and my horse typically feels best from about days 2-5 after injection. I'm not quite sure how it could cause soreness other than at the injection site.

    This. I have a Hadfields from 1997 I still get compliments on.

    Friend fell off at WEF before the timers and was not allowed to remount in ring.

    Sounds like you have already made the rational decision - just wanted to reinforce it! It's a huge red flag when a horse is trained and seems to have all of the buttons but isn't in work. The owner...

    It's technically a foray into eventer land, but Morningside is exceptionally young horse friendly and they start with crossrails. I believe they will generally let you skip the dressage test (and...

    I just get it from my vet. $250 for 50 ml. I've gotten it from multiple vets at this price.

    You're the one who said you wanted to know who was "pricey/shady". :) you're getting negative replies because you posted a negative topic. If you asked about specific barns, you would likely get a...

    Boston is simply a very expensive place to keep horses, as most large metropolitan areas are. Barn owners have to pay an absolute premium for land and the cost-of-living for them here it's just as...

    I also do Pentosan and it's about $25/dose. The loading period is one dose a week for a month and then monthly shots, though I do bi-weekly during show season or heavy work. Cheaper than most oral...

    Pull so it's thin enough to lay flat but keep it heavy enough so it won't stick straight up. Comb it flat and then run clippers along to bottom to lop of the ends. The key is keeping a steady hand...

    Too bad about Casablanca - I feel like I've gone for a partial week before, but that would have been several years ago. I stayed at another hotel once for the pool and naturally we spent the entire...

    I wish I was going this year - I always stay at the Casablanca. Affordable cute little cottages close to town and easy access to the show.

    Mine is happier in a French link than in something with a single joint - might be worth considering. Keep in mind you're asking him to build new muscles to carry his head lower so it is a slow...

    I'm not made of money either and would wager my horse cost less than the vast majority at an AA show, but he was born quiet and that's why I bought him. There are plenty out there - again, they...

    While I'd agree a civilized horse is more fun to ride, I'd argue a fresh one is almost ALWAYS more fun to watch :)
