    My guys live in Davis bells 24-7 and I have one who is thin-skinned, and haven't had a rub problem - may depend on the specific fit.

    I did try the Italian rubber pull ons in the largest size and...

    And if he's really asymmetrical he may well need a pad with a shim to make it work. You don't need a Mattes pad (although they are very nice). Toklat sells a really nice set of pads with shim pockets...

    Um, no. You do know the materials degrade over time, right? Do your head a favor and get a new one. A 13 year old helmet isn't going to give you sufficient protection in a hard fall.

    Guess we are all over the map. I have a Smartpak one from maybe 3 years ago and it has held up nicely on my field boarded horse. He is boss and is not tough on his stuff but it is certainly still...

    Any saddle needs to be far enough back that the shoulder blade will not jam up against the points of the tree. If you slide your hand under the ungirthed saddle and locate the rearmost point of his...

    just so you know, this is skating pretty close to the no advertising rule on the forums. Asking the best way to sell your horse does not require telling us how big he is or how nice he is.

    Look at eventer outlets as well. Prices are totally different and while not every horse is going to suit as a hunter, some will.
    Sporthorsenation, csquarefarm for starters.

    In the fitness front, I have a couple of observations. I've conditioned a very big WB to be quite fit for the T3d, and a big draft cross running Training. I've also volunteered for the T and N 3 day...

    I'm with everyone else about the trend towards competing 10 months out of the year. I don't think it's in the horses' best interest. I'd be off to warmer climes with my pony like a shot if I were a...

    I have one with a thick mane. I use the Mars coat king on the "wrong" side of the mane and it does an amazing job of thinning the mane in literally minutes with no fuss.

    Well, I think the general consensus is that most ammies would do the AECs (however it is configured and wherever it is) only once in a while. That would be a year you might skip Rolex.
