    I went around on all fours when I was little - used to hurt my wrists and get rug burns on my knees from playing horse all day.
    Then when I got older, I dragged a handcart around behind me,...

    Yes, exactly. I have found that "training for relaxation" first, before any real introduction of more complex aids, is the best route. Once they can come out and understand that being under saddle...

    Also, I love the idea of shade screens like cool curtains. Has anyone using them had any trouble acclimating the horses to them?
    My young horse is not the sharpest fellow and I fear it would take...

    I would definitely consider buying the fly predators myself - they did work at the last barn I was at in Texas, but the owner there was diligent about using them every year and I don't think I'm...

    Fly control at boarding barn

    I moved my horses to a small private barn that is close to me, in order to better care for my old horse who is on stall rest, and decent pasture for my young horse. It is almost completely self care...

    I don't know what to make of this either. I've bought two saddles from Colleen over the last 10 years and both were good experiences.
    I have a new horse and will likely need to make some saddle...

    If the problem is caused or exacerbated by the shoeing, maybe hold off on the MRI until that is corrected?
    Just thinking of cost savings here - I have sunk a ton of money in the past into...

    Good to know. I'll look at the self patch GPs - the ones I have are full seat and a few years old, so maybe they are making them now with sock bottoms. That would make them unicorns for me too!

    Another vote for the Horze Grand Prix - the downside is they have velcro leg closures, which I am finding I like much less than the sock style leg. That Velcro gets stuck on everything!

    ^ This, exactly.
    After 25 years of supporting and participating in this sport, I can agree that just because someone is a highly skilled professional, doesn't mean they don't make mistakes and...

    Thrilled to read this - so glad he is speaking out and agree about pulling those fences.
    The fact that other riders had to jump that same fence at JF following the accident is completely...

    I did not like the Kensingtons - they slid down and bunched at the ankle.
    This was on a horse who was very active in the pasture - they may work better with a quieter one.
    Also, someone suggested...

    Hopefully your tendon issue is just a strain and will resolve itself with continued rest.
    I would investigate the foot issue more. If your horse has a typical TB low heel with a negative palmar...

    Can anyone using the Seresto or Preventic collars let me know how nasty smelling the collars are? Our aussie is a big snuggler, and loves to sleep on our pillows in bed.
