    The liners only work with a Rambo (or certain Rhinos and Amigos). They work great; I bought a 200g to go with a sheet, and I had no issues with it shifting or anything, but that was only one winter....

    I've ridden under both systems, though never at a really big barn. Generally I prefer if walkers stay on the rail, and I really liked the barn whose rule was if you're cooling out at a walk, you...

    I would mention it to the BM. Briefly explain what happened, mention that you were a little concerned for your safety and don't want this to escalate, and ask BM how he/she would like you to handle...

    What I heard at the Raleigh, North Carolina, sale last fall was that the earlier tent sales are better ... by the time stuff gets to Raleigh at the end of the year, there isn't much to be had. I...

    I really hope you aren't paying to lease this horse. If you are, this is in no way a good deal for you. You're basically paying the horse's owner to "train" him, which is not your job (nor does it...

    *raised eyebrow*

    I can't say that this is improving my opinion of the Kessler family ... :no:

    OP, you are not a bully for disagreeing with someone or having an opinion of your own that happens...

    I have this issue as well, and I work with a very competent dressage trainer. She has me lift my leg off the horse from the hip socket. I've found that I have a much greater tendency to clutch when...

    Effax Lederbalsam. Apply generously, let collar sit in warm sun for 10–15 minutes (or use a hairdryer on low heat). This helps the leather absorb the product. Once it's all nice and warm, start...

    This is what I do; my trainer (who has worked with TBs and OTTBs for decades) taught me to do it.

    My OTTB gelding will balk some when we're hacking out (footing changes are problematic); if I...

    Oh goodness! :) That's kind of you, but I'm not really qualified. I learned—and am still learning—from one of the best, and I think at this point I know just enough to realize how much I *don't*...

    Honestly, I think her poor little mind is just blown. By all means, rule out physical issues, because not doing so is not fair to her. But I agree with the poster(s) who've said this sounds like a...

    A thousand times this!!! This guy is an asshat. He knows he is making you uncomfortable but that does not matter to him because he feels entitled to your time and attention. Your comfort is clearly...

    I am like this as well. I have one horse, an 11-year-old TB gelding, and he has quite a wardrobe, though that is partly because he can wear some of my old mare's stuff too. I try my best to make my...

    I have a pair of wide Kanyons that have a pretty generous foot. I am not quite a true wide, and the calf isn't quite big enough for me (mine are about 16.5" right now) but the foot is fine. So that's...

    This is exactly what I'm wondering, particularly given the smell. I am wondering given where the sheepskin is peeling off if it was stored in such a way that the edges got too dry/were exposed to...

    Used saddle pad not as described. WWYD?

    I've had some decent luck buying gently used items on several FB groups. I bought a sheepskin saddle pad recently and received it yesterday. I was in a hurry and didn't look over it thoroughly, but...

    Yes. I have an Amigo Bravo medium weight that will take the liners. So far it's held up just fine, and my guy thinks it is great fun to find the grossest, muckiest place in the field to roll ......

    This doesn't sound like a straightforward case of convenience euthanasia. Also, the bar is lower with horses than small animals simply due to the resources that their proper care commands. Most...

    Set up a small pen and put his only source of water in it. He'll go in when he gets thirsty, and that's where he needs to live until he's less feral.

    Do make your initial interactions with him...

    Yuck. I briefly rode at a barn whose standard of care was like this, and it was awful. I was exchanging rides for barnwork, and the BO chastised me for being too generous with the shavings. She would...

    Disclaimer: I am not a saddle fitter. I am friends with one (who's certified), and I've done some research on my own to fit my two horses.

    If I were you, I would start looking at saddles with...

    Thanks for the compliment on Rory. I absolutely love that horse. :)

    I really like fancy stitching; I guess it's a holdover from my days in the hunter ring, haha. I could see us doing a beaded...
  23. Unique dressage bridles for the refined, petite head?

    My lovely OTTB has requested a bridle that actually matches his saddle for Christmas. (He has strong opinions about these things ... and, well, pretty much all other things too. :lol: ) I said I'd...

    It's kind of a long shot, but do a bit of research on selenium deficiency symptoms and consider testing her selenium levels and supplementing with selenium and vitamin E if she's low (or even on the...
  25. Explain to me this, please: laces v. zipper

    Why are there so many winter boots out there (not just paddock boots) with laces?! I'm in North Carolina, so while we have winter, it's not anything like the winter that some of y'all deal with.
