    I will add to this.

    I loved the leadline saddle for age 1-3. When my daughter got old enough to go out on a lunge line (3 1/2-ish?) she was MUCH more comfortable on a bareback pad than in any...

    I think you would find a lot more MN-GP and SN-GP (versus BN-GP) people who didn't go the eq route - size on a national scale (some of those might be "local BN" riders). It seems that most of the...

    I used a leadline saddle for my daughter when she was was a toddler. I always walked at her side with a hand on her, but I liked the handle, and the shape of the leadline saddle was a lot better for...

    Is she "not shedding," or is she just really fluffy still?

    It sounds from your post that she's not shedding at all, which seems odd, though it's tough to say without knowing what region you're...

    Don't forget the thousands of years of domestication and breeding for individuals most willing to work with/for us.

    I would think that if it was "just" training via negative reinforcement, you...

    This picture just showed up as an ad on my FB feed.

    I think it's a funny picture because of the aligned front legs (you can see a tiny bit of the LF hoof in the bigger pic) and the unfortunate...

    Just Drag? :lol:

    I drag my arena every day this time of the year because it rains so often and "sealing" the arena by dragging keeps my footing perfect regardless of rainfall. I have a tractor...

    I can't ride in jointed stirrups.

    I bought a pair of Sprengers 8 or 9 years ago with no thoughts that they could do anything but good. I rode in them for a couple of weeks and really just felt...

    I've found that what I like most is a balanced saddle.

    If the saddle is really well balanced I'm equally happy in a deep seat or flat seat. If the balance is off even by a little bit I prefer to...

    I will repeat my mantra yet again. A horse "only has so many jumps in them" in the same way that a human "only has so many breaths in them." How you prep them and condition them makes all the...

    I prefer slant. Most of my horses are big (16.2, 17, 17.1 and all relatively long) and those 3 fit in my 3H slant well. One of mine has a major issue with backing out, so I do appreciate being able...

    Completely agree with vxf111 here.



    I have a hard time believing there's even 1 out there, AlterTops. I know of a handful of amateurs actually winning money on the west coast, and all of them...

    No, I don't think it's insane.

    Judges *are* professionals....as judges. Being able to judge someone does not necessarily equate with being able to ride at a professional level. And learning to...

    County is always my first choice for a sharkfin-withered beast. 4 of my 5 have extremely prominent withers, but all with relatively different body shapes.

    For my TB that has a big wide body and...

    I agree with Lucassb. Also in the fact that I usually agree with mvp, but disagree here.

    I think there are plenty of people out there you could find to do what you would like.

    I can't address the breeding side of things, but I've had a lot of horses over the years who were still super narrow at 4 and matured normally, albeit a little late. How does she look overall? Does...

    Most riders utilize the release that's most appropriate for the jump and the horse. Most of the time that means you'll see different releases from the same rider on the same horse at different jumps....

    I'm a big fan of Tomorrow. I always have a box of vials on hand. Living here in the NW we pretty much live in "the spring thaw" from October until June with no relief from the mud in that time. I...
