    But people use loose rings with a figure 8 or a flash all the time without incident. There's no reason the drop would be different for that.

    Shouldn't be any problem using it with a loose ring.

    :-) I am older than flash nosebands and have yet to see one that is built to fit as it as designed. Maybe they have better ones in NZ. I always thought it was odd that they were so emphatically...

    And in some cases, the owners are interested in there being babies from their nice mares but don't have the funds, facilities, or expertise to do it themselves.

    Due diligence and talking to each...

    Tnavas, that picture of a straight cavesson is lovely but it ignores the laws of physics. Few cavessons are stiff enough in the connection with the cheeks to resist the downward pressure pulling it...

    My experience is not that at all. The flash, because of the way it requires a very tight cavesson and the way that it drags the noseband down the face anyway, can actually be quite a bit less...

    I think everyone here is discussing its use with a bit. The Multi Bridle has a bitless option, but can be used exactly like the Competition bridle.

    The bottom strap that goes below the chin works...

    I have a blue check Rhino purchased earlier this year from SmartPak that is doing great.

    I have one and I like it. I use it on a pony that will not tolerate a flash noseband. She doesn't mind the drop on the Micklem.

    I disagree that the design inevitably increases poll pressure. I...

    It seemed to me most everyone thought it was pain related, but also felt there were management changes that could be helpful both for rehab and for keeping the mare happy and sound indefinitely into...

    Oh for heaven's sake.

    Show him in the brown bridle. No one will care that it doesn't match the dressage saddle. No. one. will. care.

    :-) :-) :-)

    There, got that out of my system. It's...

    Just make sure it's the smooth mouthpiece and not the one with the two bumps.

    Those of you putting all this faith in Paypal as a better way to transfer money should probably read up on some of the issues people have had with them, which would include that they are very...

    We don't have a ton of transparency in this process, but I'll direct you to the bright red text at the top of the document:



    So the different drugs is only one difference between the cases, and...
  17. Revetted in an eventing context for a ditch...

    Revetted in an eventing context for a ditch usually means that it's a vertical face with the dirt held in place with timbers. Unrevetted would just be kind of a dip in the terrain. A typical...

    OP, I'm glad you found the problem. What you were describing was most certainly a pain response and not a training problem.

    A four year old horse is still a baby. I say that because in your title,...

    I will take a moment to take the thread at face value and say how much fun it is to see Facebook feeds of people I know excitedly posting about prepping for the trip to Kentucky for Rolex. :-)

    IMHO, a little harsh.

    Vests don't have nearly the testing and evidence behind them that helmets do. If you want to put a vest on your kid, great. If you don't, that's not an irrational choice.

    Thanks for the report! I love Premier's electric netting and I also appreciate that their catalogs are very down in the details - I feel like I learn something every time I read through them.

    Worked out pretty well for Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum. :D
  23. Premier 4000c/s clippers ... for horses and/or sheep. Other suggestions?

    My daughter needs her own set of electric shears and clippers for her sheep. I was looking at the Premier 4000s which can be converted into the 4000c - same motor but a clipper head. The 4000c would...

    If you will be riding the horses and being paid (even just in living expenses), then that revokes your USEF amateur status.

    But if it's a great opportunity - and it sounds like it is - do it...

    I recall some speculation about the mental effort involved in an upper level cross country event, and the toll that takes on stamina. I also seem to recall a human study that combined mental and...
