    My friend who is a trainer has a Devoucoux monoflap (so, one of the eventer models) that fits everything except her very sharkfin-y, very narrow but huge shouldered TB. It is a remarkably useful...

    I have the Venezia, which is an updated version of the Venice, I think. I've had the old and now the new model of these MH boots as my daily boot for years- I love them. They wear really well, they...

    I keep wanting to post a picture or three of my jumper "dwelling" (side note: who calls it that?) which he does a foot or two (not exaggerating) above the jumps, pretty much all the time. Or some of...

    It's funny how people who seem like they might know better sometimes do not. I do a little blog thing and in my last one I mentioned something really useful that my trainer (who, just to give some...

    Well, it isn't actually all that hard. If the horse (with the qualifiers that it is sound, likes its job, etc.) struggles past a certain height with a good rider up- loses its jumping form, is...

    I'll mention Morgan Cillo again, as I did on the eventing forum. She is young but very good, and she absolutely loves to explain the theory behind things. We are right outside of Bel Air, so if you...

    Seriously! The judgy pants are pretty evident here. Very scopey, athletic horses often come in difficult packages. If they can't be trained to do their job then what options are open to them? I'd...

    What works on each horse seems to be totally random. Some horses do better on one thing, some on another. I have an 18 year old TB eventing with a kid who is leasing him. He gets yearly hock...

    I board mine at Forest View Farms in Forest Hill- Morgan Cillo runs her eventing training and lesson business out of it and co-manages the farm. It's a great group of people, Morgan takes people out...

    I have four or five Five Stars and I really like them (obviously). They show off equally my older horse's elegant TB head and my younger horse's blocky WB head. They mostly cater to eventers and...

    I had the Mikmar for my old jumper who was sensitive about everything and he lovedovedloved it. My only issue, which was a big one, was that the middle part got stretched out and stank after...

    Supershorty uses exactly what I like! Vetrolin splashed into a bucket for a body wash, and an arnica thing I make myself out of dried arnica flowers and other stuff, which is essentially Sore No...

    So, out of interest I've been trying to put myself in this situation as the person who owns the horse and I just keep coming up with the fact that your trainer is a jerk. I half-lease out my older...

    Ooh, I didn't realize the other rider was an ammy. Well, yeah. That changes all sorts of things.

    I don't know how attached you are to your trainer but I will say from experience that once trust...

    I agree completely with PNW. Young horses are all different and need to be evaluated as individuals, but there is a huge difference between drilling a baby and getting it out and doing stuff. I had a...

    Wow, that makes no sense to me. When I was a junior and my horses did the green divisions with my trainers and the childrens/juniors with me any prize money they won in the greens came to us (and we...

    Different things work for different horses, but feed-through is generally much less effective than injectable joint stuff, to my knowledge.

    I have an 18 year old who is in his first year of...

    Old thread, but always topical!

    I go to Aiken with some eventer friends (those crazy rotational fallers!) every winter and show my jumper in the Progressive Show Jumping series at Highfields....

    I'm a jumper rider but I happened to see this thread and it is interesting to me. I am about to be 46 and I've recently had to actually work to maintain a healthy weight, which is new to me. I eat...

    In my barn and in my trainer's barn most of the TBs (including my own) go in HS Duos or nathes, or a loose ring French link, and the focus is on dressage. This sort of nothing bit takes away the...

    I think that MagicTreehouse's story is pretty common even for some of the bigger barns- obviously the OP is talking about horse care at home, but (to go on a tangent) it is often a false picture if...

    It so much depends on the adults and what they are teaching/expect and the sort of program each kid is in, as others have said.

    I lease out my older horse to a teenager who has been taught since...

    I ride 5-6 days a week, 1-2 horses and probably get 2 years tops out of a pair of Mountain Horse Venice-types. I went through three pairs of very pricey Ariats very quickly before I gave up on them....

    I guess I don't feel too bad for people who are unable to do their own research and get outside opinions about saddles and such. If someone buys a saddle because they do everything their trainer...

    Definitely- the more you do (hopefully) the easier it gets, too! I have to say that this year remembering courses is coming a lot more quickly than last year, which was my first year doing rated...
