    I voted "on my own," but that doesn't seem like an accurate way to answer the question, even though it is closest to the truth.

    I don't shop with anyone to whom I pay commission, but I do seek...

    I have a Schockemohle (I think) version that I've been using on my chestnut horse with ear plugs. Like others have said, the ear part is a stiffer foam-like material. I don't notice any difference...

    One of my mares has super fragile winter hair. She gets rub marks from the wind if she stands in one spot too long (okay, that's an exaggeration, but it sure seems that way sometimes). At the end of...

    Historically I had always purchased size 7.5 in Ariat boots, for years and years and years (despite being an 8 in more regular streetwear). Then I bought a pair of Monacos, which fit better in the 8,...

    I totally agree with this - part of the reason I bought them was because I *wanted* the blue accent. :)

    My daughter was happier on a bareback pad between the ages of 3 1/2 to about 5. She trotted, cantered, galloped, and just in general had fun. The strap on the pad was all she needed to feel secure,...

    The blue isn't nearly as noticeable as I thought it would be. With that being said, I probably wouldn't wear them in a formal class at a show, though I wouldn't hesitate to wear them in regular...

    I have the Ariat V Sport and Ariat Volant S. Depending on the price point you want (Sport Vs are $280ish and the Volants are in the $500 range) they're both super boots. The Volant S will probably...

    I've always done a semi-gradual introduction with the sheets, though often times with my young horses the first introduction will be at a show in the evening after a long day where they'll stay on...

    I do hunter/jumper shows only (and really just the jumpers when it comes down to it), but take dressage lessons far more than jumping lessons. I try to work with my dressage trainer weekly through...

    I will say that walking into a very large jumper class on a 17h horse versus a 15.3h horse really *can* make a visual difference to the rider, so while I don't shop by horse height and don't care all...

    I'm with IFG - I wonder if something odd in the prep/manufacturing process caused the reaction? The pics make it look like a pretty wicked allergic reaction of some sort. Yuck - sorry you've had to...

    My vet has been using it quite a bit for the last several years. It seemed to make a difference with several of my horses at different times for different things, but what really sold me on it was an...

    I absolutely love my Ovation helmet. I have a Samshield (which I also love) as my normal show helmet and a bunch of older GPAs that I used to ride in at home. I bought my daughter an Ovation and...

    I agree with Janet - low wide oxers are a great tool. Gymnastics are also a great tool. But I will add that a lot depends on the horse's natural style.

    I've posted about my OTTB quite a bit over...

    I'm not going to post the whole detail here both because it would be a lo-ong post and I'm not sure I remember all of the details clearly. But here's my original post about what my guy went through: ...

    I got a very obese, thought-to-be-foundering pony many many years ago. He's 12.2h and weight-taped at 950lb. My vet instructed me to put him on Thyro-L and Quiessence and, of course, put him on a...

    This is such a dangerous way to look at it! ALL drugs can have potential side effects and there ARE side effects that can happen with omeprazole. You're changing the pH/function of the stomach, you...

    All drugs have potential side effects. My TB with no colic history over 6 or 7 years of a not UNstressful lifestyle colicked twice while on a maintenance dose of omeprazole and the working theory is...

    I pulled the omeprazole from my guy's diet the day he came home from the clinic and moved him to sucralfate, which he did fine on. IIRC, sucralfate coats ulcers in the stomach AND hind gut, but maybe...

    You can search the threads I've started if you want more details, but omeprazole (Ulcergard and Gastroguard) can have side effects. I had my guy on it for longer (4 months, IIRC), but it led to 2...

    I bought a couple of horses in 14.

    First I bought my baby mare (Holsteiner), sight unseen, in Germany from, well, "strangers" really isn't the right word. I bought her from someone I admire...

    I've won a number of coolers over the years. I use the ones I like on all of my horses. Most of the coolers these days don't specify the division/class anyways (and often not even the year any...

    I clicked on this thread because my initial reaction was that it was a ridiculous and weird TB bias comment/thread.

    Then I got to thinking about it and realized that I've dealt with lymphangitis...
