    Journeymans replaced the entire zipper in one boot of my Ariats after it busted at a show. I have no idea what it cost (it was a few years ago), but it has held up great, and it is a much higher...

    Just because there seems to be some language confusion in this thread, a Bill of Sale is a bill of SALE. I.e., the horse described is legally deemed sold (title transferred) when signed by both...

    I don't have any personal experience with Jones Hall offspring, although I have seen a few in the show ring, but I wanted to say hello, fellow NoVA'er, as I recognize the Philomont show ring in that...

    Pretty much all of the ones in my barn fit that description... Oh, wait, and they have been competitive at rated hunter shows too! If you go to my website, just look at the pictures on the home page...

    We have a separate shed next to the barn (1/2 the length of the barn on the far side) in which we store the hay (and the big tractor, small lawn tractor, and the small trailer). With the equipment in...

    The best saddle is the one that fits you and your horse, and you feel secure going x-c in. It is completely personal preference. When astride, I usually hunt in my Tad Coffin. My husband uses a...

    I think you are correct; the Hermes is the closest I can find to the picture. However, that is unfortunate for me, as I do not think I can justify spending ~$500 on a show crop! SIGH. I do love it,...

    Peter, definitely, for all of the reasons ^^^. He trains my friend who does the jumpers (1.15+ m). She hauls in for lessons, and meets him at the shows. No issues, and she has very good results (yes,...

    No, unfortunately that is not it.

    Sorry, it would help if everyone knew what it looked like. I added a link in the original post.
  10. Where to find Whip/Crop on the cover of Untacked magazine?

    The latest issue of COTH's magazine Untacked features a rider on a gray horse carrying a very interesting looking whip, that has a twisted, wood (?) shaft. Does anyone know who makes it, or where to...

    I am fine with everything you listed except the rugby pelham. I recommend that you use a regular jointed pelham or a double bridle. A rugby pelham is not a traditional hunter bit, and I have seen...

    I love Peter Foley, and he is great with amateurs; however I do not think of him as the go-to person to bring along a young horse, which is what the OP specified. Not that he can't, but that is not...

    In my case, I don't think it was miniscule pain. As I said, he was barely lame on the circle, meaning that Dr. Allen was hard pressed to even say he was a .5. There are some horses that are very long...

    I would also say front feet.

    We have a coming 15-yr old Hanoverian that was formerly a 2* eventer, so super brave, and VERY honest - never a stop unless it was going to kill both him and his...

    I agree with some of the other posters... After seeing the videos, he looks like a cute horse that may have potential. However, he needs professional riding, a lot more proper flatwork, pole work,...

    Next time, try a remote controlled car or a dog squeaky toy. I swear, those were the ONLY things that the pro photographer had that could make one of our horses put her ears up and look good. Nothing...

    I would highly recommend you have an equine attorney draw up the lease contract for you, rather than just getting one from someone and attempting to modify it for your needs. You really have to have...

    While not traditional, Spanish tops are fine in the hunt field unless you are trying to win a BTO competition. Honestly, I have much more of an issue with the zippers than with the shape of the tops.

    West Mifflin = very unhorsey!

    Unfortunately, Western PA is rather a dead zone for H/J. You will have to go to South Park/Bethel Park area, or north to Barbie Bancroft/Bargee or Linda Stevens/Fox...

    Ugh, what a mess OP! That is why whenever I use Magic Cushion, I then put a thin diaper over the sole and then put Old Mac boots on the horse. Stops it from getting everywhere! ;)

    The OLD Butets were great saddles, and wore like iron. The ones made in the 2000s were notorious for causing back-pain with their banana-shaped panels. I believe that Beval updated the panel design...
