    this is my set up too. I've had Miss Silvia for at least a decade and she's still going strong, so yes, it's expensive but this equipment lasts forever.

    I have one too. Great saddle and really does fit a lot of horses. Don't see them much in the US.

    Do keep trying. No one should have to feel like that all the time.

    And don't feel embarrassed. Depression is an illness. You wouldn't think poorly of someone who has diabetes, right? Tell them...

    Exactly. I ship saddles all the time and never pay that much. I prefer UPS but either way she's shipping in a big box for it to cost that much.

    Different people respond to different drugs. My daughter has depression. The first drug she tried didn't help. The second one helped within two weeks (even at low doses). She still needs to talk to...

    And that is why I will never sell my Roosli!

    I would not buy a Hennig or a Schleese for a horse that is transitioning to a new discipline because his topline will like change quite a bit. Then...

    Definitely get some out of the ring time under your belt before you try hunting. One of the things that most surprises people who hunt with us for the first time is the speed at which we cover the...

    I think the newer foam panels are a head and shoulders above what they used to use and I'm sure that they hold up better.

    I've owned both. I generally prefer wool, but for the right saddle I'd go...

    I have a two horse and will bring friends to the hunt if their horses are well behaved and it's convenient for me. I will let them split gas costs but nothing more as I do not want to cross the line...

    Yes, ace is fine. Talk to your vet about an appropriate dose. If you don't give IM shots, you can give the liquid orally or your vet can give you pills. When I was rehabbing my TB from a ligament...

    I was also going to suggest a bit of Ace to see if it helped. Horses will learn on Ace so it may teach him to be more relaxed.

    The chomping on the bit behavior sounds like anxiety to me.

    Will...

    While frustrating, I don't think behavior is insurmountable -- it sounds like more of a disobedience than blind panic or anxiety. However, if you do not like to deal with it and it makes you dislike...

    The other thing that I have noticed about SmartPak is that when you shop in the clearance section of the store, the discounts are taken against a higher price than the SAME item in the non-clearance...

    I know that company and I would choose Patty. Both in Connecticut by the way.

    There are so many great saddles out there that you will end up with many choices. I've had a lot of saddles over the years that I've really, really liked.

    You also need to make sure that your model was built on the "glow tree". I have several Kieffers. Not all of them are on the adjustable tree. You can always check with Kieffer if you're not sure....

    Patty Barnett in CT does it. I think it's $250 or $300. I think that Dressage Extensions also has the equipment. I was going to have Patty adjust one of my saddles. I had my fitter evaluate and give...

    This! I have always wanted to be part of my horses' training. Even when I had an admittedly quirky horse, my trainer would ride him one day and then teach me on him the next. The goal was to teach me...

    Interesting question. From what I've been able to find out, it's the fatty acids that break down the most quickly. I already knew that -- it's one of the reasons why I feed whole flax rather than...

    I have a very reactive horse. Magnesium does help him stay a bit more relaxed and focused, but he also needs 24/7 turnout and lots and lots of saddle time -- I ride him about 5x/week and usually for...

    That goes for any saddle. Your best bet is to find a saddle fitter who is vendor neutral and see what they recommend.

    I prefer wool panels as I've personally found the fit to be more adjustable.

    30 days is way too long for a trial, in my opinion. I have only bought and sold a few horses and try to avoid trials completely. That said, I've taken a horse on trial for a few days (I think I had...
