    I agree with this. I wouldn't call the horse "strung out" in the unpowered sense, just that in the video of the fall they are clearly galloping, and the horse seems to have no issue with it. The mare...

    You are definitely still in what I would consider the "safe" and "don't worry" window :)

    And yes, sometimes it takes quite a long time to get to you.

    I'll add my 2 cents, FWIW. I have one and I am not a big fan. I don't find the leather to be that nice (as others have said, it's a bit stiff and yet also very wrinkly), and I dislike that the girth...

    All of my horses live in their leather halters (not literally, but their show halters are their home halters). I used to always buy the middle-of-the-road leather halters from Stateline Tack. Quality...

    Yikes - doesn't sound like a great plan, IMO. Though like others have claimed, I'm certainly not a vet or specialist in chemical usage. Seems like a usage schedule like that could ultimately boost...

    :eek: WHAT???!!!! :eek:

    If I had known this last year I would have forced you onto one of mine....just for one class even, to make that statement go away!!! :lol:

    Wish they would go with digital for the health certs for getting back and forth across the US/Canada border. I have to pay an extra $50 in shipping fees to ensure that they get the papers to me in...

    I have Beval flat buckle stirrup leathers on all of my saddles. They look nice and they're nylon lined, so they don't stretch ever...and I've sure tested that out! I finally just took my first pair...

    My TB has something that sounds like it could be similar. You *can* pick his off, but it's tough and it obviously bothers him when you actually rip them off. And then they kind of "weep" (not enough...

    I would disagree, though I assume that it's because I'm describing what I mean incorrectly, not that you're incorrect. I ride in both my dressage saddle and jumping saddles, and take more dressage...

    If this is the result then you're doing it wrong.

    I don't disagree that a lot of people report exactly what you're saying, but I don't agree with the extension that a lot of people (not you) add...

    My guy was started in wedge pads after we x-rayed his feet (many years ago). We discovered that his toes needed to be brought back further than any farrier has ever been comfortable doing (without...

    I completely agree with all of this.

    Start with the County rep - I would reiterate everything you've said here to him or her. I would not start with a check and reflock without having the...

    I agree with what you're saying, pluvinel, but I think you're missing the point here.

    People here aren't trying with all their might to fix the problem. In the grand scheme of horsey life it's a...

    It could also be that when you're seeing pros show in "amateur" classes, it's really because they're running two cards at once (e.g. Pre-green and AA classes at the same time - or whatever matches up...

    I agree with horsepoor. And will say that my GP jumper has been in wedge pads for the last 4 or 5 years with minimal (if any) adverse effects and lots of benefits. A good farrier understands when and...

    If he needs shoes but pulls them, have you thought about trying something like Shoe Secures? I am in no way affiliated with the company, but started using them on a young horse of mine who would...

    I agree with simc24 here.

    Having to get a CREDIT CARD to get decent shipping is RIDICULOUS! Especially given the fact that you can easily get just about anything they sell from somewhere with a...

    Yep, I'll echo the others, and say that I don't order from Dover because it really irritates me to pay a huge shipping price on a pair of expensive breeches that I can get from Smartpak often for...

    I have a Stabilizer, an Innovation, and a Sensation. All of mine are narrow trees and it seems like the Innovation runs the widest of the 3 models I have, but just enough that it's a hair wide on my...

    I'm on my cell phone, so I won't search and post right now, but I started a thread a few months ago about my gelding who came home from a trainer with a huge hematoma between his front legs. Thought...

    My High AO/GP horse will be 14 this year and gets his hocks injected at the beginning of each season. I've been doing that since maybe his second year at 1.40m (when he was maybe 10?). I don't mind...
