    We like http://zephyrsgarden.uckele.com/pure-simple-itch-sprays/zephyrs-stop-the-itch-spray.html at our barn. It really seems to work well. I feel safe using it on my horse that is out 24/7 without...

    The pics I saw used small kitchen (or bathroom size) trash cans. But I like the idea here about 5 gallon buckets.????

    At some point, somewhere online, I saw pics for using kitchen trash cans and pvc pipe. Cut holes in each side of the trash can to hold the pipe. At some point we plan to make this but not a complete...

    I am schooling/showing first level, but I really think this is a true statement. This is our second year at First Level western dressage. Last year I showed the first half (western has 4 tests per...

    My horse is not enthusiastic about backing off a step up, but that is our only option, so I've done two things. First, I always back him and then halt right before the next step is a down step....

    Have you tried a Spirig? I'm not sure mine would be wide enough for her or how wide they come, but the upswept panels are great for the short back. I don't know if it is currently true, but at least...

    I love my Spirig–and it's an old one–for putting my leg underneath me. Because of my own conformation, I'm 5'1", many saddles have a stirrup bar set too far forward. The upswept panels work well for...

    Sandra Beaulieu is in Dover-Foxcroft, but is in our midcoast (or somewhere nearby) quite often. She works well with a variety of types and always puts the horse first.

    I am a long time English–pony club and eventing, now just lower level dressage–rider who has moved to western for my current mount. I ended up with a Martin all around saddle that I absolutely love....

    Thanks so much, everyone! I have to admit that I'm clueless about racing for the most part and wouldn't even have any idea where to go look, so I appreciate it. :D
  14. Help me satisfy my curiosity–Gulf Stream horse ID?

    Okay, so this is pretty silly, but I'm curious. My sister and I were visiting my mother this weekend, and on Sunday we went to Gulf Stream. Now, my sister is not a horse person at all, but she'd...

    I have had multiple good experiences with customink. You can upload your own design, they have multiple tees from which to select, and their customer service is top notch. My last order arrived...

    Okay, we aren't as far along the "riches" path as some–always love reading about your cobs, exvet–but here's my "rags" story:

    In the late summer of 2011 I gave up on the horse I had had for 3...

    When I did a Training Freestyle, I cantered to X, trotted X to the corner letter, and picked up the new lead in the corner just after the letter.

    It's not typical, but I did read that they were allowing freestyle competitors to wear costumes this year. The message I saw was careful to point out that it was for fun, and that costumes would not...

    On Sunday I worked part of the time without my stirrups on my guy. I just don't feel it's fair to him to take them away until after he's all warmed up. Then my friend asked me to hop on her...

    I like a plain sidepull as well. You can get them in plain leather if you don't like the usual western rope noseband. I'm schooling in one for a while this winter to see if it helps my horse pay more...

    I am not quite your age, and I am experiencing "burn out" with the horse community. For the past several years I have been active in our local dressage gmo. This year has included much drama and...

    Well, it does mean lugging, but we recycle by tossing the "dirty" water in the indoor arena. Of course, you can't just upend it in one spot.

    I wonder if you collected it all in a wheelbarrow if...
