    I am in a similar position as you, similar budget, experiences etc! I bought an off-track project last year, and lost him to colic before we got to start over fences training. I've started looking...

    Thank you for starting this thread - painful to read but its making me feel a bit better. I just lost both of my Thoroughbreds this spring - the old guy to a heart attack (we assume), and then 2...

    This was my thought as well - no experience with NV - but $500 adoption fee would barely cover 1-2 months of expenses for anyone taking a horse off the track, before training hours - so its not like...

    If you can't afford the Black Country (have sat in one, they are nice!!), possibly a used Passier would work? Should easily find a used one for under $1500. Or Prestige saddles seem to work for...

    Excellent advice. My gut feel, based on what you've said is ditch the side reins for now, and just longe without them. Focus on keeping him in a quiet rythym at the trot and don't worry about his...

  7. Partial vision loss in one eye - problem for jumpers?

    I know there must be a few people here that are riding or have ridden horses with some vision loss.

    I sadly lost my young Thoroughbred recently, so have just started looking for a replacement. ...

    Western Canada

    As someone already mentioned, there are a lot of nice horses to be had if you are willing to look outside of the major centres like Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto. Several of the breeders are...

    Probably easiest to go through someone who works with the race trainers regularly to purchase projects - I just bought one straight off the track from a race trainer last year, but he was recommended...

    Hijacking a bit - why do people hate La Mundial, is it the issues with the company you mentioned, or issues with the quality/fit of the boots? I saw their boots for the first time in Las Vegas last...

    Ditto all of this, for my horse that was similar - down to the stable bit, plain noseband, no martingale - and the riding advice with a long rein. In all my lessons with this horse my trainer would...

    I have an ogilvy - I don't think I would use it if your saddle is generally fitted to your horse (too bulky!). I just recently bought one of these sheepskin half pads for a similar reason (lack of...

    Tucci boots come in all colours too. Pretty much all the high end brands have different colour options, just depends how much $$$ you want to spend :)

    But isn't this true of most saddles, that they need to be adjusted by a fitter? Or are you thinking of adjustable in terms of the saddles like Wintec/Bates that have the gullets you can change...

    A four stride line is long enough to give to you time to circle out after the first jump. I would try this instead of halting after the first jump:
