    Rambo Wug Varilayer is great for my guy. He has huge withers and small shoulder rubs, which could have been caused by any of his blankets as he's worn different ones this winter. Pretty minor.
    I...

    I have the Plymouth Elite and I like it a lot. It looks great on my dark bay and fits well.
    The only thing I don't love is that white or something shows through on the underside of the reins. ...

    I use Charlie's and I've been happy with their service.

    I originally bought a Hastilow jumping saddle for my skinny TB with VERY high withers. The saddle had short tree points and seemed to fit at first, but eventually caused a lot of trouble. I ended...

    Like another poster, mine gets spooky from ulcers/acid. Putting him on pop rocks fixes it immediately.

    I bought one that a friend knew the trainer and the horse had a terrible abscess and he was pretty lame. She said I didn't need to vet him and I stupidly listened.

    After the abscess healed, the...

    I think that most of us go through times when we remember bad thing that have happened and it takes a long time to get over it.

    For me, I'm an amateur and I ride because it is fun. If I'm...

    I never had my horse scoped for ulcers, but if he comes off Ugard he turns into a maniac within a few weeks. The most recent time he did this, the former barn manager had decided to stop feeding all...

    Maybe double check to see if your saddle is pitching down or up in front and needs reflocking. When my saddle needed reflocking in front it caused a major difference in how it fit me. The saddle...

    I use Ugard pellets from SmartPak. My horse becomes a maniac if I take him off of it, so I assume it is working.
    I don't know what products are the best, but Ugard works very well for me and it...

    In addition to a lot of things mentioned by other posters, I keep a bolt cutter in my truck in case I need to cut out the chest bar clip or butt bar clip. My horse got stuck under the chest bar when...

    Preliminary Review

    I have a review of sorts- at least my experiences so far with the Vari-layer blanket.

    General Observations of the Heavy: The blanket fits well, doesn't put pressure on Dobbin's camel withers, and...

    I've used the Rambo liners with my Duo and the SS tack liner with one of their blankets. They both worked great for keeping the horse warm.

    I did have static problems with all of the liners, so I...

    Foursocks- I'm pretty sure I saw your horse a few weeks ago (the stalls are pretty distinctive so I recognized the place and I believe he was the import turned out alone). He's really nice looking...

    Dissolving in Coke works well for us (as suggested by another poster as well).

    You can pour it over the feed or you can syringe it. My horse wouldn't touch SMZ's any other way, but he is happy...

    We had some of ours get perfect circles of cheek swelling. Grass glands I guess. Went away the next day.

    Note to the people getting the Vari-layer from Dover, or any Rambos for that matter. Many of them come with a free jacket right now, but you have to ask for it. The heavies definitely do, I can't...

    Our TB filly went into season at 9 months- if you're wondering about the girl's side of things.

    Thorowgood T-8 maybe? I have their high wither version. It is 1/2 leather and 1/2 synthetic but I don't think anyone can tell it isn't all leather from a few feet away.

    It is comfortable and...

    Our racehorse is in training at Fair Hill and it is about $3K a month not including farrier, vet, transport to races, etc. I think Fair Hill is $15 more a day than stabling at a racetrack for our...

    Sitting is the best by far as suggested with one leg crossed over. Once you get the zipper started, I stand up and finish zipping.

    I've used the Rambo with liners and I like them but they can cause terrible static and make the horse nervous about being unblanketed. I'd avoid them or use a lot of static guard.

    I had the soft grip reins from Bartville and they got extremely slippery when wet and I did wear gloves and it didn't help.

    For me the roughest hard rubber reins seem to have the best grip and...
