    Hauling 1 horse in the R-side stall...

    I've been taught when hauling 1 horse in a 2-horse straight load trailer, the horse needs to be in the left side's stall. I've always done this. I have a polymer-based stall divider that flexes ever...

    Imagine my surprise when I got a call from a new barn I just moved into that I'd "better get a cribbing strap for my horse". What?!?! He'd NEVER cribbed - never even hinted at it! I got him as an...

    Belgian, thank you SO much for this explanation! I had seen riders at the Portuguese Alter Real stud had these tall hose as well...always wondered why knowing that there must be a practical (if no...

    I posted earlier about the St. Georges trailer. When I got it 2 years ago, folks at my barn came over, looking at it from the exterior, asking if it was a 1-horse cuz "it looks so small"! I'm at a...

    When I bought my St Georges trailer, I visited a dealer who lived and kept her horses next door to the sales lot. The trailer is 7.5 feet tall, forget how long (it's on the website) and she loaded...

    Heart's Journey: We did 14 rides with Skip -including the last ride the last season they were open. He let riders do things they (and most other outfitters) would never do. We have tons of great...

    I'd get bloodwork done to see if your horse needs it. Otherwise you'll be feeding it not knowing how much is optimal if there isn't a baseline. Correct and systematic riding program should build a...

    Lawndart,

    Thank you for letting me see your vacation photos. I love the fact that the number of guests on their trips are rather small. I'm really eager to book a trip now! I've been to Dubois,...

    BlueSkySage also sounds great! We did several rides with Western Encounters in the late 90s-mid-2000s where I'd ride 35-45 miles/day and hubby had the option to take a shorter & slower route back to...

    Lawndart,

    Thanks for your feedback. I just got off the phone with Sarah of Bear Basin and it sounds like I'm really leaning towards their outfit. I know there are tons of Dude Ranch vacations, but...

    Hi all,
    Looking for feedback if you've taken a trip with Bear Basin Adventure outfitter near Dubois, WY or others? Trying to plan a riding vacation with DH. We've ridden at the Bitterroot Ranch in...

    My friend just got the Iconoclast boots for her horse who is coming back after a lateral check ligament injury. They look very similar to SMBs, but supposedly offer more support with 2 sling wraps...

    I only know 2 people who've done it. Disasterous. One had a temperament that new owner couldn't handle...would have needed a pro rider and this was a middle aged ammy. Other horse was not sound for...

    Though I am of average height, I could not find an affordable saddle (under $3K) that had stirrup bars set back enough AND with a flat-ish seat. Most saddles draw me into a slight chair seat. After...

    ^^^^^

    Amen Keg-A-Bacchus!! Does saddle fit answer EVERY issue? Of course not. It can't solve the issue of a bad rider or pain, but it solves a lot more than you think - esp. if you never...

    It's amazing how many trainers don't take saddle fit into consideration. Until I took a saddle fitting course, I too didn't know how a badly fitting saddle could hurt a horse. I also worked as a...

    It seems like GM is talking about good equitation/dressage basics more than he did in the past...or maybe I'm just noticing it :) I've audited a few clinics last year around the barn where I board....

    Just a friendly FYI: Working a horse long and low will not build a topline. This is good for getting a horse to seek contact and a test of relaxation and balance, but it is not a conditioning...

    Jeffer's sells a nice cooler that is about $24! It holds up well and is thin enough to quickly wick away sweat, but substantial enough to hold up. It has a chest buckle and belly strap with rings in...

    I am loving my Petrie dress polo boots. They are anthracite gray, but they have all colors you can imagine...or black. Mine are fully lined calfskin, so practically no break in at all. They do have...
