    I trail ride in my jumping saddle. It's a deeper seated jumping saddle by Albion and I just love it. I choose it over all the other saddles I own, western, English and dressage.

    I'll try to take some pics today and see if I can figure out how to post. I took some pictures before and after with my IPhone. For some reason, I got home and had nothing. I don't know what happened.

    I almost always have good response to low port mouthpieces, although English riders seem to be utterly terrified of anything solid.

    I'm so sorry. I lost a mare to EPM in 1993. First horse I ever lost. She left a tiny orphan. It was such a tragedy.

    Does he get any alfalfa? Most feeds are deficient in lysine and methionine. 6 pounds of alfalfa a day will fill those needs. I've never had soft or flakey hooves with a horse on 5-6 pounds of...
