    I believe Hestar was who i rode with when i went there! Great fun.
    I did not take any of my own riding clothing, and honestly it would have been overkill to have done so. Unless you get a better...

    I know I am in the minority here but I actually prefer a regular cab pickup. :) But I like to haul without distractions. I prefer big tack in the tack room of the trailer and other people in a...

    Does it have the light that turns from green to red depending on how you adjust the brakes with the side dial? (Not the slider)

    I have a mare with one very small canine. :) It *does* happen!

    Thank you!
    It's a fairly small horse and one that has never seriously set back, but I appreciate the advice. I found a cheaper, stouter bungee tie at my local tack shop with a panic snap on the end,...

    I have literally nothing to add except to say that your blog is all hilarity!

    I have 17+ inch calves and can still get my leg *and* jeans into the tall shaft Tony Lama 3r boots. They are under $200 and are SO COOL. :) I will warn you that the foot runs small, maybe 1/2 to one...

    Thanks so much, everyone!
    The HiTie seems to be the gold standard, so I'll get one on order. :)
    Thanks!

    Thanks!! :) I appreciate that feedback. The High-Tie does seem to be the most common set-up I see.

    Anyone else? I will probably need to order something by this evening to get it here in time to...
  10. HiTie vs. Tilt-Tie vs. Spring-Tie - opinions?

    Just like the title says! :)

    I'm going to my first ACTHA ride on 3/29, and hauling out to my first overnight ACTHA rides on 4/5 and 4/6. I'd love a high-tie set-up for the overnight one so I need...

    his hind quarters look a little TB but his croup is a little flat . . . That beautiful, thin, high-set neck is killing me! I have no idea. If i had to wager? National Show Horse-Thoroughbred cross.

    You bought a horse that was *maybe* a little too much to handle and you are successfully training, showing, and trail riding him! C'mon, lady! You sound like you are doing all the right things to...
  13. Best way to gradually trim/remove the front of a rear riser pad?

    This is a stupid question on its face, so I will try to explain what I have in mind--

    I am trying to change the balance point of one of my jumping saddles on one of my horses. The balance point...

    Where at in WA are you? Anywhere that the stallion might potentially be "accidentally" rounded up with a bunch of BLM mustangs?

    That was very thoughtful of the NB staff. I wish Washington State University's Vet Hospital had done something similar for my leased mare in 1997.

    I think Kerrits just came out with one that is supposed to look more like wool. Horze has a tech jacket too, I believe in grey or black.

    Update for everyone:

    I ended up putting Roxie's Big Fella blanket on, and ordering a Big Fella hood. The Big Fella hoods come in XL and XXL. I believe the difference is in length, so I got the...

    Awesome! Thanks so much for the tip!
    I'm headed out for an xc clinic this morning but I'll get on it on Monday and (hopefully) remember to let you know how it goes. :)
  20. Rope halter/tied-in lead users: Any tips or tricks to loosen lead from chin loop?

    As the title says--

    My project pony has set back a couple of times (and learned that it doesn't work :) ) against her rope halter and tied-in lead. For training purposes, though, i would like to...

    This SAME thing happened to a friend of mine! We boarded together at the same facility. BO didn't pay well, so barn help was usually pretty, uh, hardscrabble. This guy was a FREAK. I think he was...

    I love, and still have, my first-ever horse show ribbon. It's a little slip of lilac with "Participant" stamped on it in gold. There were 25 or 30 horses in the class--it may have even been a...

    You ain't kidding! Most blankets have these teeny neck holes. Schneiders actually run a little too big in the shoulders. Most blankets do not have enough side drop, or the rear d-rings for leg straps...

    Martina--sounds like your horse and mine share similar dimensions!

    I measured the base of Roxie's neck at 60" around, her throatlatch (loosely) at 42", and her neck length from ear to wither at...

    That is not a bad idea, alto! I was planning on doing that to her belly . . .
