    Previous experience

    My Connemara had this when he was younger. All we did was steroid injections and lots of hill work for muscling. Where are you located? I would love to talk to you about him so more. I have been...
  2. Same old, same old - saddle fit and hoop tree

    Hi All - before any "feedback", i have searched the forums for posts on hoop tree saddles, but note that a lot of the threads are either older, or not in my discipline, or only offered up some...

    Hi there - I second the opinions that unfortunately your saddle does not appear to fit, the contact on the back panels looks off and not good wither clearance up front. Having just gone through a...

    Hi All - She is darling, but I could swear I have seen that ad several times on CL - I live in this area and was looking for a large pony last year. I am guessing more than one person thought it was...

    Hi all - not to hijack the thread, but i have been looking for a hoop tree saddle for a pony that definitely needs one. Not like your guy - he is a barrel with legs. If you see a saddle with the...

    Thanks much, he's been fun. Just need to find a saddle to properly fit him - a whole different thread:(

    Hi guys - thanks for the replies. Of course, I am tempting the horse gods, I'll probably find a disaster on my hands when I go to feed tonight...

  10. Well, I'm doing something right - share your brag:)

    Some rainy day positive thinking.

    It's so easy to count all the things you aren't doing "right" in horse care - my fields don't always look like golf courses (good thing actually since everyone...

    Thanks for the pics sirensong4! Your mare is super cute and fairly similar in build to my pony. Ironically I got an older Courbette to try on him and it's close but really hard and rather steep...

    Could just be me, but in the pic where it looks the most "off" - the one from the rear, it also looks as though your horse isn't standing truly straight? The seat looks quite level, but from the...
  13. Anyone taken out their stall mats and liked it better?

    I have a stall that needs a stall mat re-do. Prior owners of our place put them down and it's a mix of type of mat, shape, etc. needless to say they don't fit tightly and the urine underneath is an...

    Rode today, weather here in NoVa was really nice, but of course, still ended up riding in the dark due to the compulsion to get all the chores done before riding. Pony was a star considering total...

    Great easy fix I learned from a saddle seller. Run the leathers under the flap not over. The billet guard keeps them from rubbing the saddle and most of the rubbing on the flap is your leg vs the...
