    I love my freeform saddle-stays in place while riding and mounting! Stay away from hilason-they are the worst quality and slip all over

    Money is only part of the pie when it comes to FEI horses. Sure, you can purchase one that is currently winner shows but this does not mean it will perform the same under you and your trainer. I...

    I would look at giving him away as a companion or putting him down if nothing can be found. It is a tough choice but you will amke the right call for him.

    Why not leave it alone? I am damn sure you will never loose points at a show for it. IN FACT you may be disqualified for dying your horse!

    Expect teasing comments for crazy questions

    It is not your horse, you only lease him so I would not expect to be the only one riding him.

    If you want to be the only person on this horse-full lease or purchase it.
