    I did not mean to sound dismissive of those who won't tie their horses- to each his or her own. Horses and circumstances are different, and people have all sorts of reasons for not tying. Around here...

    I never used to tie mine until I started hanging out with eventers, got a horse from an eventer, and then got another one from Argentina, where horses (including a lot of stallions) get tied to just...

    If you want other options Quillins and kyhorse.com are where I get both turnout and show halters. kyhorse.com is especially inexpensive for the quality of the leather and workmanship. I get a new...

    Good topic! I hate being cold- it makes me whimper like a puppy- but sometimes I have to ride in really cold weather, so I've got a whole routine down for winter. I have a bunch of cheapo silk long...

    I love these kinds of threads- good with my morning coffee. I think that the words "never" and "always" with regard to horses are sort of useless in most situations.

    I've been flatting my young...

    She is ADORABLE!

    My two cents: from those two videos she looks like she isn't comfortable with contact, so if you can get a good dressage trainer to help both of you figure that out you will be...

    Well, I would wait until it grows in a bit, then perhaps do some sort of trace clip so the areas that get the sweatiest won't have lots of hair, and see how that goes. Leave his leg warmers on (I...

    According to the research I could find daylight is the primary cause of hair growth. Temperature can affect it, but not always and it doesn't play as big of a role as the light cycle. This is why...

    I just had a weird discussion with someone about this subject where she swore up and down that clipping and blanketing was the height of bad horsemanship because it isn't "natural." She got...

    Blanketing or not doesn't actually do anything to the coats- less sunlight causes more hair growth in preparation for winter.

    I clip both of mine a couple of times in the winter, dress them in...

    Oh, I wish I could! They don't look hard but my knitting abilities are about as well-developed as a platypus's knitting abilities. I knit when I was a little girl and tried to pick it up again as an...

    Thanks, all! I am now going to end up with 20 bonnets for each horse. It's either feast or famine with me.... :lol:

    I've seen Uraya go- she clearly loves her job, as someone else said. She is an athlete in her prime and I think those theatrics she pulls are simply an expression of energy and excitement. I also...

    Ear bonnets for the large-headed horse!

    I think the answer is (actually) that I need to stop being cheap and buying cheap ear nets, but: which ear bonnets are made to fit horses with big heads/longer ears? My WB has a block head, and my TB...

    I did the switch several years ago, after I came back to riding during graduate school. I showed hunters from the time I was 9 until I aged out, and when I came back I picked up hunters again but...

    I just got some Mountain Horse Supreme Whatevers for every day riding because they were on sale and I heard they were sturdier than the Venice (which I wore through in 1.5 years). I am hoping they...

    Well, it depends on how old it is, what materials it is made out of, and how it has been kept and used and maintained. When you look at the ones you come across, make sure you bring someone and have...

    Thanks, guys! Egioja- what type of leather do you have? I think the grain would be my best bet, but since I am buying used I may not have all of the options!

    Updated CWD 2G experiences?

    I've searched for and read all (I think) of the previously posted stuff about the 2G models from CWD, but I'm wondering if any owners here can speak to durability over time, now that it has been out...
