    Is he too narrow for your CWD? Sorry, I didn't catch why it didn't fit him other than the width was off.

    My Albion Show-Jumper in the NMTB tree has fit many horses such as you describe.

    Too small for me. :) I didn't see a huge difference between 17" and 18".



    I won't disagree. What was your injury? I did ride in a saddle for a while that likely caused a mild labral tear in my...

    This made me smile and laugh! Love it, and you look wonderful.

    yeahyeahyeah.

    Surprisingly, my 18" didn't feel very different from my 17.5". Or my 17". We're talking about an inch here. :D

    How very very exciting! I will keep my fingers crossed indeed. I have loved everything I've seen about Gravitas, and loved Louis (Future Illusion) when I got to visit him up-close-and-personal at...

    Frances,

    I am so happy for you, your team, and especially the horses. I was actually quite disappointed with the Burghley test results because I really wanted to see Jock win in Kentucky. It is a...

    Winsome Adante by Saunter, a full TB sire, out of Juswith Genoa, now owned by Julia Hodkin. Genoa is, IIRC, a TB x ISH cross. Primmore's Pride (my personal favorite event horse ever!) is by Fair Oak...
  8. Permanent Fix

    If you want to fix it permanently, you're going to have to put and keep your leg on her even though she's curling up on you. Heavy/curling/leaning at a gallop is essentially the same thing as being...
  9. What is your natural anatomical position,...

    What is your natural anatomical position, standing? It sounds as if you have a posterior tilt to your pelvis (do you tend to have a chair seat?) which, if you do, will take work to improve, but I am...

    I love you so much! Come stay with me if you need a break, or if you want to spend a weekend being strategic. Having known you for nearly 10 years, and having watched you ride for at least that many...

    I do like the idea of dowels placed into the outside of the standard (drilled at an angle) at the height interval, and would use chain instead of rope, which has a tendency to stretch.

    Also, I finally go the page to load. How is the pin/bolt any different than a regular jump cup? Girl! I know things happen, but if you're worried about running up on the pins on the backside of a...

    A to the Men.

    I would much rather impale on steel instead of plastic (or any other material prone to splintering).

    I have amassed all kinds of body clippers over the past 20 years. I actually prefer different clippers for different horses, but the clippers I've enjoyed using most recently are the Lister Legend.
  15. Ulcers

    I could definitely see (and have seen) a horse with ulcers having a mild, rapidly-resolved gassy moment. In my case it was my own horse, pre-ulcer diagnosis, and not at a competition. Show jumpers...

    That is very much a slap in your face. I would counter with what you feel is a project cost, then decline if they don't want to pay it. I sense through your message (and maybe I'm off base) that you...

    I probably had 2 too many Pimm's Cups with Fairweather on XC day at Burghley, so of course I washed them down with at least 2 pints, then did the Peterborough>Tube>Gatwick Express in my Dubarry's...

    I've only been to Burghley, which I can highly recommend.

    I actually was considering going to Badminton this year (for the early-in-the-year aspect mentioned!), but at Christmas a friend asked me...

    I don't say this to be cheeky, but because you have a horsey husband ... MAKE SURE HE DOESN'T GET IT ON HIS HANDS or, if he does MAKE SURE HE WASHES THEM BEFORE HE HAS TO GO PEE!
  21. Exercise Options

    A way to fix this quickly, especially with a group of beginners, is to have them put their fingers on what they'll associate as their "hip bones" (in truth, these bones are the ASIS/top of the...

    I have taken my dog (JRT) twice in the past; once when she was about 9 months old, and again in 2009, when she was 10. It was hot the last time I took her, and as I discovered, her endurance had...

    For just reason.

    Did anyone see the recent results of a study (30 year study, perhaps?) of marathon runners and the increase of plaque buildup in their arteries/cardiac systems? I found it...

    Like many, I stared at that number and thought, "This really can't be accurate. 30?" But then I did my own mental timeline and, well, you know the rest. I'm glad I was able to see his retirement...
