  2. 2H trailers: Any benefit to removing partition?

    I have a 2H BP lightweight Euro trailer. My horse loads happily in the L stall. The slightly flexible partition doesn't go all the way to the floor, so she can spread her legs to balance, etc.

    Thanks Yellowbritches. I am riding below Training, but I usually wear a jacket. I haven't competed in many years and swore off clinics and shows in July/Aug after riding in a 100F clinic 5 years ago....
  9. When jackets are waived - shirt collar question.

    This weekend I'm riding at a rated event that is predicted to be 95F :( I know jackets will be waived (or at least they'd better be) so I plan to wear either a white short sleeve Riding Sport or a...

    I would not recommend "poling" your horse - having someone hit the horse with the top pole as he jumps. A bad trainer at my barn did this with a client's horse and after one or two bangs on the legs,...

    Thanks everyone. Looks like the stiffer fly sheet gets the most votes!
  22. Flysheet: Soft & silky or stiffer type material?

    Which ones are more comfortable for the horse? Silky type looks light, soft and drapey, but are they making the horse hot on humid days since they cling more?

    The stiffer type looks like they'd...
