    If money was no option, probably would buy a Charles Owen for showing. I have an Ovation for schooling and it is super comfortable so I show in it if I am not wearing my top hat.

    I ride in one of the Trilogy Brentina saddles and it is really uncomfortable for me. Granted, I am tall but the seat is wide and hard! Just tried another Trilogy and thought the same thing. The...

    I have been directed to use Surpass on the neck on an IV site that was swollen, it worked great!

    Forget the shirt, buy high-waisted breeches and keep the shirt you have. That's the only way I can work it. Otherwise my jackets would be too short too.

    I have the custom Tally ho bridle bag that Smartpak sells, it is pretty roomy. Takes a little bit of cramming but my double fits ok and I like the padded lining. I fit my double and my snaffle in...

    For a horse with a true ewe neck it can take a lot longer, 6-9 months, and I totally agree with other posters that say diet is a big part of it! (Along with correct, consistent, sweat-inducing...

    I have tried them and they are just wax with a little flavor, they didn't make any difference for the horse. I guess if you shoved a whole handful in there it might but at the price of them you...

    I have one and I LOVE it!! It is so breathable and when I toss it on a hay-covered chair or something I can just brush it off easily. Can't believe I wore my other old one for so long. It looks...

    I've ridden one horse by Graf Top and he was athletic, but had a very old style plow-head and was spooky and a drama queen. Once he started having enough muscle to do hard work easily he settled in...

    While you are figuring out how/why he is pulling shoes, get a pair of bell boots and let him live in them on his hind feet. Should help if he is stepping on himself at night, maybe getting up/laying...

    I've known 3 horses that would colic from banamine, so I can't imagine it is ALL that uncommon, though those horses were odd and sensitive about other things too.

    Wow, someone was JUST telling me about this today. She said to use the White-Wash in a bucket of water, and hold the tail in the bucket of water and it apparently works great! I'm going to try it! ...

    Totally different perspective here, as a rider who gets on a lot of unknown horses I would be keeping my heels way down on him, he is built to buck! Anyone else see the big butt, downhill build,...

    I think the Klimke II is the model I saw last year and I was not impressed. Cheap slippery leather, no real knee rolls, shallow seat, etc. Sort of looked like an old Wintec Pro with cheap leather...

    Both people I knew that used it got it from the local pharmacy. Neither horse got too bad about the treatment, maybe a little flinchy towards the end of it. Some of the sarcoids we were treating...

    mroades, xterra is a zinc based cream, I think, which might discourage sarcoid growth or shrink it but I haven't used it. Aldara is a human genital wart cream, very potent, and will remove the...

    If you work her harder, can you get her lame enough to block? Otherwise it seems like you could just spend a lot of $$ without really being able to say what you are treating.

    Yup, I have seen it used on a number of horses. It does work well, you have to be prepared for the sarcoid to get raw and oozey before it falls off. I would guess that you might need to give the...

    It does sound like weak stifles. I have worked with a couple of horses who had this issue, and it honestly takes MUCH longer than you first think to get the ligaments strong. It took a whole year...
