    Heard back from Passier -- saddle was made in 1991, it's wool flocked, no gusseted panels (bummer, as my mare has a flat-ish back), and is a 27.5 tree, so guessing that would be about a medium-wide?...
  2. Omega Horse Shine vs. ACV vs. Spirulina??

    Hi all,

    I just got a new horse who arrived last week. Well she came in from the barn two days ago with very mild hives. Didn't seem bothered by them, they weren't itchy, so we decided to monitor....

    Hmm I saw that on google as well that a 28.5 is considered Passier's "wide", and I only want a medium-wide. The girl said "It is a medium wide tree, which is usually a 32 for saddles" -- so I've...

    Thanks for the response Alto -- I plan on looking into masseuse/chiropractor as I think you're right that it could be very beneficial for her.

    I think I'll continue with our usual 3-4x a week...

    Soloshots are $300-$400 range, but they aren't in the air.

    Drones cost $300 (for a phone video) and upwards with the better quality camera drones closer to the $800 range.

    But you need...

    My comment about her not seeming 4 was more in regards to her attitude, not her riding level. She feels very much at a 4 year old stage in terms of balance and self-carriage -- still learning the...

    Anybody have experience with the Passier Comet II saddles?

  9. Riding only with the rein your horse DOESN'T lean on?

    So my wonderful new horse arrived -- and I'm thrilled! She's 4, a 1/2 trak x 1/2 ISH. So far she's handled the move swimmingly, people at the barn don't believe me when I say she's only 4.

    She's...
  10. Ger Geertsen -- anyone been to a clinic?

    He's Dutch and his NL farm is quite nearby where my mare is stabled. He was recommended to me by some dressage people around here because he gives clinics in US and Canada so is quite adept at...

    Totally agree with this! Donating to Medecins Sans Frontieres ( http://www.msf.org/donate ) is another great option. They are still leading the majority of the ebola response work.

    Diets, Doctors, and Sugar -- oh my!

    I (admittedly) self-diagnosed myself with a parasite, but I figure when you match 19 out of 20 items on symptom lists online (and have just returned from 8 months in Sierra Leone)-- it's pretty...

    Thanks for all the feedback. I can't seem to get this pony out of my head. While the logical thing to do is say no (his greenness w/ my out-of-shape-ness; my schedule; etc) everytime...
