    I struggle with this too!

    Ride the one you DON'T love, first. Otherwise, you ride your good one first and then find excuses to short-change the one who probably actually needs the extra attention.

    I've never had slipping issues with the two I use on my VERY roundy horse. I have a Tekna synthetic and a Voltaire. The Voltaire was a huge amount of money but is probably the nicest piece of tack I...

    Typically even before PPE, I have a bodyworker (massage or chiro) feel the horse and evaulate any back or neck soreness. I can live with most bone ailments--cold splints or osselets, mild ocd, minor...

    I agree. The mare in the ad look like a Walker with draft ears. I'd guess TWH/draft-x.

    I've experienced the low-flat out gallop on TBs only (although that is what the majority of my horses have been). According to my GPS, Roxie has never, even on her fastest day, downhill with a...

    I read this thread at a 2-day unrated show this weekend, after Friday schooling and Saturday showing were basically huge failures on my part to disregard my trainer's oh-so-helpful advice of "just go...

    Bogie is absolutely right. So many jump saddles have the bars too far forward, and there is basically nothing you can do to change the balance point on the seat with that configuration (except for...

    I actually just spent a summer rehabbing a high hind-suspensory strain. Unsure how the injury originally occurred, but rehab was a) uneventful and b) completely successful (vet's words, not mine). I...

    I used to have one--i forget which model. I lost a bunch of weight and the seat became too big, so I sold it, but I remember the saddle being fantastic quality for the price point. Thick leather,...

    I use the Desitin diaper rash cream that is 40% zinc. It is, obviously, mineral-based, but it works well to keep the bugs off. It isn't water-soluble so is a little messy, but it stays applied for...

    Aaaaaaahhhhhh I had this EXACT problem with my Thorowgood. Recessed bars = dry spots (perfect circles almost!) on poor Roxie.
    I've resigned myself to riding dressage in my Ansur. We are currently...

    My old TB does this too. Only when she is alone, and no other horses around. Must be an endorphin thing!

    It is my understanding that the Budweiser horses are not true Clydes, even though they are commonly referred to as such. I believe they have some Shire blood, to get the height. Budweiser Clydes are...

    I agree with Rodawn too. In their interactions with each other, horses do not think of respect in terms of "give-and-take"--they think of it in terms of "take." You must be the boss mare, always, and...

    Update!

    The Ecogold arrived last week. It didn't do anything to help with the dry spots under the stirrup bars, so I am banishing that saddle from the repertoire.

    I like the Ecogold but it is...

    I haven't been to either of them (or New Holland, FWIW), but both Billings and Hermiston (OR) have a pretty good reputation for quality animals.

    Weird crosses: I've seen TB-Fjord and Hano-Saddlebred. Both were/are gorgeous. The TB-Fjord was very correctly built and was basically a buckskin TB. The Hano-bred is a 17+ hand black monster mare...

    Good tip!

    I have tried a Professionals Choice Ultrashock pad for the Ansur, which is open-cell foam from what I can tell. It provides a little bit of a "panel" for the saddle. My little mare...
