    I don't have one. I'm currently riding him in a western head stall and split reins with an oval link copper snaffle. I need to get something a bit more standard. ;)

    Thanks for for all the...

    Starter Dressage Bridle?

    It's time to start looking for our first dressage bridle, but I don't want to spend a lot as I don't have a saddle yet and while I'd prefer a brown saddle, I don't want to assume that will work out...

    Hello my elf! I received a box yesterday. I opened it and everything is so nicely wrapped. There's no note of whether I can open it before the 25th or not. Can I? Can I? Please?!?!?!

    On the haul-in fee, ask about a cost for the whole month. Every barn/trainer I've ever taken lessons at that had a per lesson haul-in fee also offered a monthly, unlimited rides, haul-in option....

    It is fun! I assume he had crossed bridges before, but I got the impression it was his first creek crossing. He did pretty well, no jumping, just some enthusiastic pawing once we were in the water.

    You can go longer - but there's a very fine line between short enough that it won't get the helmet hair and so long that it will just look squashed all the time. At some point a pony tail is a better...

    Mtn Trails - where did you go?

    I took my 5.5 year old reiner on our first trail ride yesterday (he went twice just after he was gelded 3 years ago, but with my trainer). We went over to the...

    Pixie cut - you can wear a ball cap, a stocking cap, a helmet, whatever and then take it off, apply a touch of water with your fingers, and go on your way.

    You might try a Crates saddle if you can get your hands on one. They can be good for the curvier backs and big shoulders, altho you still might have a problem with wither clearance.

    I did the 4 week loading dose and give it every 4 weeks on the recommendation of my vet. When my horse is working extra hard (shows, heavy training), I give it more often, or will do 2 weeks in a row.

    I'm in Seattle so it's a bit different. I have good size sacrifice paddocks attached to stalls. They are pretty much off pasture from the time the rain hits (early October) until it dries out a bit...

    I let my gelding lick my hands. He's weird about it, almost like a cat grooming you. I know I shouldn't, but he just enjoys doing it so much.

    I NEVER pick the mini mule's feet. She hates it. She...

    My current gelding's favorite place to pee outside is the low spot directly in front of the gate that doesn't drain. Enter the "lake of stinky pee" sitting on gravel. So gross.

    Having had a gelding (and now a mini mule) who wouldn't pee anywhere other than his stall? There's not much you can do but put down mats, keep it fairly clean, and use something to knock down the...

    I'm not sure what my goals for the year are. I've been focused entirely on reining the past 4 years, and JD and I had a GREAT year this year in the novice classes. That said, life is nuts right now...

    I usually wash and soak in white vinegar for 10 minutes then let dry. It will kill the spores and it won't discolor your brushes.

    I broke mine in 4 places years ago. Standing in the stirrups at a walk and consciously letting my weight settle in my heels helped stretch everything out. 20 years later I still do 5 minutes of it at...

    Well, as all things horse related, there is what I'd like to spend and what I'll really have to spend. So, yes, if I need to go to $1500 I will. :)
