  1. Free companion/walking trail horse in Fort Myers, Fl

    Ronnie is a 17 yo, 15.1 hand Arabian gelding with left ankle arthritis, sound for being ridden at the walk with a daily scoop of bute. He is beautiful, an easy keeper, otherwise very healthy, and...
  2. Thank you all for the suggestions and...

    Thank you all for the suggestions and information! It looks like this is a common problem that should resolve after further break in and isn't just the Ariat brand. Looks like I'll keep them, do the...
  3. Tall boots with zippers rubbing back of ankles. Normal?

    Hello! I finally purchased myself a lovely pair of Ariat tall boots (volant sport I believe) and have ridden in them maybe 3-4 times. They are soft boots, and seem to have dropped a bit already, but...

    I am in SW Fla well and was curious about this saddle fitter. If anyone PMs you, TBkate, will you please forward it to me as well? I sent an Email to them through the website a week ago but haven't...

    My horse is an ass and would bite anything within reach, including other horses and some choice people. These stall fronts would give him too much space to cover with terror. :lol:

    They sure do...

    I don't leave a saddle area when clipping and my sensitive gray hasn't had trouble before.

    I recently purchased a used Dominus brand saddle. Bruce Davidson version maybe? Anyway, it's older but has a great open, flat seat. Solid saddle for less than $800. Mine has a pretty wide tree for my...

    Ha! My horse works a maximum of a couple hours 4-5 days a week. Usually I'm so busy working 40-60 hours that he may only have to work 2 hours a week.

    I'll trade him work schedules any day.

    Plaited reins

    Does anyone know of a place to order plaited reins from? I've seen the Stubben brand ones once but was hoping there were other options out there as well.

    I've always wanted to spoil myself with a...

    I work in an ER. There are far more crazy folks out there than you're led to believe, horse people or otherwise.

    Although I must admit horse people seem to have their own special brand of crazy....

    I agree that it's a selling point for a "child safe" or unflappable kind of horse. Kids are prone to poor decision making.

    On the other hand, I can stand on top of my horse (kids are prone to poor...

    Yay!! Thank you so much for sharing this. I live on the other coast and had no idea a Dover was popping up so close. My friend and I were planning a road trip to the nearest Dover, which used to be...

    Lwbits.com can make you something really similar for about $30.

    Not in her mouth, around the outside, like you would with Chapstick on a human's mouth, at the corner where the cracks develop. If they reach into the mucousa of her mouth, don't put it there. Just a...

    People with vitamin C deficiencies get cracked lips, but I doubt that is the issue here. Just thought I'd toss it out there.

    Have you tried a low port kimberwick bit? My horse has a low palate and...

    My horse hated the cross over type bitless bridles. Hated them. He is a stoic horse and you can put anything else on him or in his mouth with no fuss but he was very angry with the crossover/under...

    Horse shoe types for ankle arthritis

    This may be a shot in the dark, but since I'm not well versed on the various horseshoe types I thought that I would ask: are there any particular types of horseshoes that would help relieve stress on...

    Haha, you guys are a bunch of enablers! I like going fast too, so I can't fault him for that. I am always careful to change up the places on the trail that I up the speed so that he doesn't start...

    I have a few at my dad's house, boxed in the attic. I need to get them, too hot up there!

    They made a model of my horse's sire, Sshameless. Found out a few months ago. My horse looks just like his...
  22. Horses that behave a bit differently on the trail

    Hi all, just wanted to see if anyone else runs into this kind of horse.

    I've had my horse for 13 years. I was the first person on him and he has always been a wonderful boy, always eager to please...

    Arab owner here. No bridle path at all for mine. I pull his mane though so I probably can't be taken seriously :winkgrin:.

    I have never liked long manes, no matter what breed.

    That is just their "gettin' it done" face. They probably act like that when running around the pasture. Horses tend to pin their ears at higher speeds and when concentrating. Think of a cutting...

    So funny that one K is the leading suggestion! It's the one that I've been eyeballing for a while now. I'm glad to read that it's a well liked brand.
