    I have totally done that too, actually I do it all the time :lol:- stopping and asking for a trainer to talk it out with me. They will use a term or an expression and while I understand the essence...

    I personally just bought a headset system because as the rider, I just can't hear my trainer all that well, even when she tries to get louder. Often times it is raining, and that gets LOUD on the...

    Me too! 5 yr old Arab mare in addition to what has been listed already, also working on baby "leg yields" - but I will say last week in my lesson my trainer worked with me to install moving the...

    I agree with those who says it stretches. I bought one over a year ago for my gelding, and wasn't thrilled with the fit- esp that dang jaw strap -it seemed so short. I ended up not using it all year...

    you know, asking him to leave may not be the worst thing in the world - for both you and the horse!

    I had a horse like this...except when I was boarding him, he was a perfect angel. Something...

    I agree with those who say its in the trot. get the back soft, the legs lifting. With the help of a very competent trainer, my stb pacer got it. Mind you, it takes time to build the balance and...

    Standardbred! I bought Ben sight-unseen from a local rescue in Canada, and had him shipped down to Washington. Seriously, not the best way to buy a dressage horse - but really he was just a fun...

    I love my Ariat Bromont tall boots...3rd year and running! paired with good socks, they keep me nice and toasty...and my feet get cold very very easily!

    Same issue w/ the schneiders- but i do think i got the wrong cuts for my horses. That said, I found the Solaris sheet at Jeffers, and i really like it for my narrow chested arabian.

    Okay I had to take a look at the blown up pic...and i think it is an illusion, like others have said...the "loop" i think is part the pommel of the saddle rising up, and then the bucking strap....the...

    Well - Thorogood/KM still uses the "s" bar in some models - their broadback/cob and some jumping models too - but i am not well versed in the jumper line at all. The leather on the KM's seem to be...

    Thorowgood could be a good option, however, if you are looking for a used saddle, tread carefully as the model has recently changed, but kept the same name T4/T8. T6's are no longer made, and any...

    A few years ago I decided, on a whim, to blindly purchase a 2 yr old standardbred gelding, because he was homely-cute, and I was in the mood for a project while my dressage horse was on lay-up after...

    I have the s-series surface block. I had an s-series moveable block (for another horse who outgrew it), but it was an 18" and too long for my young arab's back. You would think they'd ride pretty...

    My 4 yr old went through something similar back in April. He was fine one minute and then as my barn manager was turning him out, he dropped. Her repro vet was just coming through the gate and had us...

    My guy has never bled from it- never any discharge...and honestly I wouldn't have had a clue it was in there if I hadn't been playing around with him! He's 5 now, I've had him since he was a late 2...

    I have no idea if it bothers him...he does have some quirky head habits- like tilting and flipping his head around (we call it putting the ball in the cup) I've thought it had to do with needing body...

    My horse too was developing edema spots from our previous saddle moving around so much. I am a narrow-twist needer...with a wide, flat horse. Probably not the best conformations for one another....
