    It's really disappointing that these very expensive products are plagued by fit issues like this. I think their sizing/cut has also changed over the last few years, as the more recent ones seem to...

    I have a 98 Forester. It handles great and takes my 90 mi. round-trip daily commute like a champ. Has been fantastic on unplowed or slushy/icy New England roads. I get 23mpg on average (driving about...

    My former barn was on a road frequented by bikes, horses, and plenty of cars and motorcycles. I've been on that road as a biker, a rider, and a driver, and I've seen very considerate road users and...

    I dropped cable 10 years ago in favor of Netflix and have never regretted my abandonment of companies like Comcast or DISH.

    This weekend I dropped Netflix in favor of Amazon Prime and Hulu....

    Hey thanks for cheering me up with these photos of your lovely little dressage horses(and ponies)!

    Thank you all for the input!! And for the photos, piccolopony and Pony Fixer! I'm loving seeing other small equines in dressage!

    Sorry to be MIA -- I lost a beloved pet yesterday after a weekend...

    I wish I could afford another horse -- Ambuscade looks absolutely lovely.

    Susan, your mare is a cutie! And the black pad looks great on her (I bet it looks even better now that she is older/lighter).

    This Mattes Eurofit shape is also intriguing... I think I'll make a...
  9. Spinoff: Help me design the perfect petite horse saddle pad

    Apollo'sGirl's post got me thinking about pad options for my own petite (~15.1hh) dressage horse. Having had good success sewing my own "normal" square pads, I figured I may as well experiment with...

    This sounds like a good trainer gift idea for those of us whose trainers resort to wrapping up in our quarter sheets once we're warmed up or snuggling with barn dogs to stay warm during long hours of...

    When I was a barn manager I had a new boarder show up with 2 horses and 35 blankets, so I second the blanket limit recommendation!

    I'm also a fan of tack lockers. The place I managed had 2 tack...

    Just today I left my jar of rosemary mint soap in the grooming stall for a few minutes, and I had to run back and grab it out of the mouth of the youngster who was then led into that area by a...

    I have one like this: http://www.amazon.com/Plastics-152-6BK-Foldz-Black-Stool/dp/B00BY2220O/ref=pd_sim_auto_3

    It's pretty good but in an ideal world it would be wider for stability on uneven...

    Without knowing more about your horse's training, how you are establishing bend, and what sort of lateral work you plan to do, it's hard to offer any specific training advice.

    However, as someone...

    FWIW I've used 12' cotton driving lines for such long rein work. This has always left me with a considerable bight of rein hanging down when I'm immediately behind the horse like that. I manage it by...

    Mine was also diagnosed with ulcers (by scope) and the falling down was more or less eliminated when we treated them.

    Every now and then I still witness or find evidence of collapse episodes...

    I don't have any "desensitizing aids" per se -- my approach to working through reactivity revolves around focus, solid basic training, and positive reinforcement when introducing scary things. But I...

    I have one who has similar episodes from time to time. Sleep deprivation -- so simple but until recently so often misdiagnosed. Joe Bertone, DVM has written both scholarly and popular articles on it...

    Years ago I sold my first horse to a friend of a friend with a contract that included right of first refusal -- thought I'd found a good lifelong home where mare could do kid stuff with the buyer's...

    So glad this thread gets bumped now and then! I was just shopping for a halter online, not sure whether various options are actually nice leather. And then I found this thread!

    Just have to pick...

    I was most interested in the Ivermectin + Praziquantel product since it is slightly cheaper than Equimax. The others have no economical advantage.

    I was considering doing something like that. Mine...

    Don't worry -- I am a scientific researcher by profession so I'm pretty comfortable distinguishing scientific evidence from anecdotal support. I'm not morally opposed to reasonable off-label drug use...

    Have they looked into the back/neck? I'm with joiedevie -- hard-to-pin-down lameness often originates higher than the legs. Having ruled out diseases like lyme and EPM, scintigraphy might be a good...

    I agree that it sounds like pain and you should think about calling the vet.

    I had a similar problem once (minus the chriopractor stuff -- I don't buy chiro). Horse was doing great in training and...

    It hurts, but it stings a little less when you think about how much (er, how little) GastroGard that would buy!
