    My horse is named Quanah, a Comanche word for fragrant, or possibly odiferous, depending on whom you ask.

    I love Quinceanera for a filly. :)

    Thank you everyone! :) I bought a set of leather split reins yesterday - 8' long, 5/8" wide - and I'm going to practice with them this weekend. May have more questions afterward. :lol:

    I'd be pretty ticked if someone was throwing rocks at any horse in the pasture. Too easy to do damage.

    I'm also not crazy about hitting one in the chest. It's a sucker punch that he can't see...

    I have a rope halter, attached to a 12' yacht rope lead with a weighted leather popper on the end. With a little practice, it's not hard to enforce personal space for oneself and the horse one is...

    I understand why this bothers you. It always bothered me, when I had to go into a big field with lots of other horses and deal with their shenanigans to get mine.

    But, no, I wouldn't say...
  6. Bex sunglasses. (http://www.bexsunglasses.com/) ...

    Bex sunglasses. Best things ever. They stay on, and there is no glare.

    They are pricey. I got mine from an equestrian catalog that was running a sale on them, and then also got 10% off for...
  7. Which hand holds the reins and how is it positioned?

    Question's in the title.:) I show ranch horse, and I trail ride. I'm more interested in the functional answer than what the show handbook says. Which hand position makes the most practical sense,...

    Oh! Yes. :) I rode in my Fabtron saddle for this morning's lesson, and it puts your feet directly underneath you. No problems posting at all.

    Have a look at their website (linked above) -...

    I'm not sure what you're asking. :)

    Are you worried about having a horn? As in, oh, I don't know, poking yourself with it if the horse hops over a log or hanging yourself by your belt trying...

    I already told her that the last time we had this discussion. But for the good of the class - if you have one of those documents you still need to give your family very specific instructions. Which...

    I haven't used one of these in years, because of the puddle of sweat they leave behind on the poor horse.

    How about this Diamond Wool wither relief pad?

    Oooh, go for the Cheyenne! :yes: I bought myself one recently after months of agonizing over the price. Best fit I've ever had in a helmet.

    I'm a Troxel-shaped girl, but was always between their...

    I've yet to go five years without my helmet taking a good knock or getting left in a broiling truck or whatever. But if I ever do, I'll replace it then!

    And sometimes it's rider error.

    The last time I whacked my head was going under an overhead pipe. I thought I ducked low enough. I was wrong. I was wearing a helmet, though, so no problems. ...

    OK. Tried this Fabtron Round Skirt saddle on my new horse this morning. Stirrups allow your feet to be under your hips, so you can post without lunging forward. :)

    I use it with this western...

    Google your state bar association. Go to their website. Look for information on your state'so landlord/ tenant act. I agree landlord is trying to get her to go and he needs his fanny handed to him....

    Fabtron has its stirrups positioned correctly. I guess. The stirrups on my Lady Trail were. Recently received a new Fabtron with semi QH bars but haven't tried it yet. I'm hoping the stirrup position...

    :lol:

    I have a cousin who actually lets raccoons come in and eat in her kitchen. They come and go through the cat door. Not saying I'd do this personally, but hers have never given any trouble. ...

    Gasp - I ride in shorts! And ropers. And a tank top. And so far no one has fallen off their horse laughing. Mainly because so many other people are wearing the same thing.

    Oh, there's...

    I really wanted to try a Fabtron Cross Trail - it looks so nice in the catalog. :) But it only comes in FQHB and I need semi-QH bars for my new horse.

    I've noticed that attitude from hunt seat...

    I've never had an Aussie but I've had BC for years. Absolutely hands-down the easiest breed I've ever owned.

    Quirky? Well, yes. :uhoh: But I'm a southerner. As the saying goes, we don't hide...

    Yes, I'd sell them too. I've made the mistake of accumulating a few unused saddles and I'm committing to selling them one at a time.

    I wish I'd sold my treeless back when I first decided it...
