    I have two clients with persnickety OTTB geldings that have had success with the Micklem bridle. I think horses like it because it keeps the bit very still in their mouth.

    My guy hated the CAIR on my Bates even though the vet and saddle fitter both said the saddle fit him like it was custom made for him. It wasn't until I went to clip him and saw that the new hair...

    I've found that wet clipping only works when their hair is longer. I have to do the wet clipping later in the season- the first fall clip I do when they're clean and dry.
