    When the heels underrun they are crushed and grow forward. The horn tubules bend and...

    Carbon fiber additive to the plastic blend wouldn't be that much more expensive and would definitely increase the life span especially over the ABS junk they are usually made out of

    Those make me feel a lot better about my nailing patterns!

    They still look like they are fit too tightly to me. I'd like to see what the trim looks like right before the shoes go on from the...

    Agree on the double bridle. I wouldn't change the port if that is what he is used to, the leverage on any weymouth bit should be plenty with the curb chain adjusted properly.

    Love the Cashel masks. I find the Arab size fits my Paint and TBs best. The TB with the thicker head could use a horse size but my 16.3 with a refined head fits better in the Arab size.
