    The Trifecta Cotton is the thickness of a normal A/P pad, with the Thinline pad sewn on top. The Sheepskin measures at about 1" of fluff, but compressed under your saddle is really about 1/2" of...

    A gram of bute the night before a farrier appointment can go a long way towards keeping a horse comfortable while joints are flexed/feet are loaded unevenly. I totally agree with making sure nothing...

    For me, a bow is an automatic six months off, with stall rest and limited hand walking during the acute phase, and full turnout after that. At the six month mark, an ultrasound tells me if the horse...

    Gore Tex is expensive, especially in horse-size clothing proportions. I had a HIB (Horses in Black) gore tex blanket years ago and it held up beautifully, but I haven't seen that fabric for a long...
