    Thank you! We've started out trial with a Myler comfort snaffle in an eggbutt this week. I'm going to give him a week-10 days and see if there is any appreciable change, and if not try a Mullen mouth...

    Since the name of the game is calm and quiet, I just did what was necessary to get that from my horse when I rehabbed the bowed tendon that ended his racing career last summer. He was stalled at...

    You've gotten some great advice from Foxtail, Senden, Scribbler so far. I would like to reiterate that you cannot focus on the horse's head right now. First you must get him moving forward, not...

    :rolleyes: Absolutely any animal that eats chlorine regularly is going to get cancer. You have to first be alive to get cancer. And 100% of life needs Cl- ions to regulate proper cellular function....

    I admit to having fallen into the trap of "always loose ring" and my last few horses have never objected. My bit collection is mostly just variations on thickness and width :nonchalance: The tack...

    As a professional braider, I would absolutely recommend yarn for a thin and wispy mane. It will grab the hair better for holding power, and add bulk to your braid.

    I prefer to do braids like...

    I have a flat front to back, tall withered, wide shouldered TB. A CWD that a fitter said was a "good fit" made his withers swell in one ride.

    If your horse is shaped how I am imagining, I would...

    Ideas for the busy mouthed greenie?

    I'm looking for a few ideas to help my lovely guy settle down in the mouth. He's not so fussy that he tosses his head, he's just very busy with his teeth right now. Current bit is a loose ring KK...

    This is slightly offensive. Plenty of people require medication to survive every day, who are capable of functioning as completely reasonable human beings because of said medication.

    My list:...

    Were you using fetlock jumping boots? I always ride my guy in dressage boots behind. Leftover habit from a mare who interfered pretty badly. Nice thick protection, machine washable, etc. I use the...

    I second the dropped panel suggestion. You probably may be better off buying something wide enough to accommodate the shoulder and adding padding to make up for the lack of topline.

    A wide county...

    Your OTTB sounds like mine last year, (also his 4yo year) he was growing a lot, sorting feet out, didn't know where his legs were. I gave him 8 weeks off, kept him in 4 shoes for 3 cycles, and put...

    Did you try the Bliss Loxely jump monoflap?

    I too love the French saddles, although I am the opposite of you. All torso, no leg and 5'3". I didn't even think I wanted a monoflap... and I bought...

    I wouldn't stay in Minneapolis, I would look in Hector, Hutchinson or The suburbs like Chaska before giving up and driving all the way from the cities.

  17. County v CWD, wool v foam... an epic battle

    Ok peeps, it comes down to this:

    I have sat in two saddles that I love, which also can be made to fit the horse. I've sat in a lot more that I hate. I am currently only riding bareback because I...

    Hated the one K, completely wrong shape for my head. Sticking with the Charles Owen AYR8, well ventilated, classic shape.

    I was told during a clinic with a judge that any movement in which the tongue is protruding is a mandatory 4 :(. I'm battling this with my current guy and did with my last mare as well. Hopefully...

    I'm a bit peeved with them lately as well. I ordered a close out item, only to have my order canceled after they realized they didn't really have the item. Then two days later I get a phone call...

    Do you do the bodywork or do you have someone come in? I had a mare who was very stuck to the right, and what helped her most was massage and stretching pre-work. I took lessons and learned how to do...

    DeNiro Leuca Field Boots

    They have a few pair for a really nice price over in the sale section at smart pak! I just bought myself a pair that I really hope are going to fit, because I was loathing the idea of another pair of...

    Oh he is definitely a wide. And at only 5 and *just* starting into work I have no doubt that we may end up wider. When explaining to husband why I needed to spend $$$ I simple told him Bode "hulked...

    So I asked about widening, and because it's the area right under the stirrup bars that it tightest, that wasn't recommended as a good option to ensure fit. Best way to make sure i get as much money...
