    Back when I sold Albion saddles, and did fittings, I drank the "no half pad" kool-aid. But always asked if someone liked using them, because we needed to fit accordingly.

    When I saw that video, I watched it, felt bad because conditions were obviously bad, spooky horse, I also admired the rider for sticking it out and riding the entire test.

    My trainer went to an indoor for the winter months, customers paid the dry stall fee over top of the regular training board. Since I had brought my young horse home for Christmas break, I just...

    So far, I'm not as impressed as I'd hoped. It is far from a page turner. In fact, I have fallen asleep in less than 2 pages almost every time I've picked it up. I finally started looking at the...
