    I would just like to address the one point on saddle fit. No, we can't just trust you that your saddle fits, especially when your horse has a medical issue that can be caused by a poorly fitting...

    Definitely the Always Infinity! Way more comfortable, super thin, and ridiculously absorbent. As an aside, when my horse had an infection in his coffin joint that kept healing, abscessing, and...

    I add another vote for Happy Horse as well. The people who work there are very pleasant and helpful. I also think they have great selection, especially in their bits and breeches.

    Drop your stirrups down long enough and cross them over the top of the saddle. It keeps the stirrups out of the way of the dividers, and they're less likely to catch on anything while...

    This isn't a situation where I'd use a twisted wire, I would never put one in the hands of a rider who isn't able to absolutely comprehend and ride with softness in their hands. I would lean towards...

    My mom uses the celestial seasonings green tea for iced tea. She uses 3 tea bags in what I think is a 1L pitcher, fill it with hot water, add the teabags, then put in the fridge after a couple...

    I love beards, scruff, even the occasional moustache, so long as it's not the scraggly duck dynasty type. I trim the Eva of my hair to keep it from getting thin, I expect the same thing with a...

    I got mine for about a third of what it would cost me to have a new one of the same style made. I got it online and had it shipped to me from new York. I knew what the flute should have been like...

    Flute, harp, and organ here. I'm a terrible organist (although I very much enjoy it), a vaguely passable harpist, and a fairly decent flute player. I wish there were more local opportunities, but...

    You might like the SmartPak Pipers. I found them to be cut very straight across the hip and waist and fairly generous through the thigh, they were not, however, generous through the butt. They...

    I'm similarly curvy and the pipers were terrible. The looked so cute while I was standing, but did the crotch walk as soon as I moved. The waistband was also on the loose side.

    Most of the practice bucking stock at school were the kids ranch horses on the weekend. The kids would buck them out, then pull off the tack and ride them back to the trailers or stalls bareback in...

    I would also like to take this moment to apologize...
