    Jeffers used to have good prices on jump cups, but they're the cheap metal ones, probably the same that fell apart at the welds. However, if you buy several pairs, Jeffers tends to accidently send...

    I chose a PDN after researching the boards here a while back and finding that lots of COTHers suggest it for a narrow shark finned TB (which I was leasing at the time). I actually ended up buying...

    Holy crap! (literally I guess). I did some of my wedding portraits with my mare, but my mom watched she and I both like a hawk to make sure that I touched the horse as little as possible. If I...

    You said "yuck" on full seats. Do you not ride in fullseats often? You might want to ride in a similar pair a few times first because the thicker ones do feel different (and also can make your boot...

    You might try apple cider vinegar. I give my thin skinned TB an ounce over his grain every morning and he has so many less fly bites than last summer. I also spray him down with avon skin so soft...

    Thanks for the chuckle! I only laugh, as I had a similar, um, "dismount," a few weeks ago (except mine came through a dirty stop). Great spider monkey move! You were so close to pulling it out :)
