    My horse is not wide/round but is extremely flat from back to front and I was really disappointed that the panels on the T8 dressage (standard model, not cob) were WAY to curvy for her, because I...

    I'm just really surprised you can't find a suitable beginner/first time horse owner horse in your local area. Is there something specific you are looking for that necessitate you looking so far from...

    Oh ok that actually makes sense. Up in my neck of the woods we stay frozen solid for the whole winter and then just maybe a week or two of freeze/thaw cycles in the spring. During the winter the...

    I am in a similar situation as you. I do a little boarding and break and train young warmbloods.
    I prefer to have at least a 12' x 12' stall. Turnout is a major issue for me. I like my horses to...

    I'm not sure luck has as much to do with it. I've spent an incredible amount of time, money and effort into maintaining the paddocks with proper drainage, safe fencing, picking rocks out, checking...

    See now this is really interesting to me. When I was a boarder, "no turnout for a month" would have absolutely been a deal breaker for me. Why aren't the horses getting turned out for a month? I...

    I should clarify a few things. I do allow free jumping if it is done in a controlled and orderly manner.(the horse being jogged into the chute by a handler and then caught at the other end by another...

    N2 Saddlery

    I was wondering if anyone on this board has tried N2 Saddlery? They are based out of California and the heads of the company I believe were previously associated with Custom Saddlery. I am debating...

    This is probably not the answer you want but here's how I fixed my "airplane wing feet". My trainer at the time tied the inside branch of my stirrup to the girth. She used something that was...

    We do have very large safe paddocks for the winter with very safe footing where the horses can easily stretch their legs. Free lunging is also allowed in the outdoor arena. And all summer they have...
  13. Do you allow free lunging/turnout in your indoor arena?

    I own a small boarding facility. While we are not "posh" it is definitely one of the nicer facilities in the area, just 3 years old. We have nice footing in our indoor which is meticulously...

    I wear a size 38 Pikeur Diana. I am pretty petite and usually wear a US size 2 and small/xtra small tops. Hope this helps.

    I'm with you. I don't like the V browbands . The curved ones can be really nice though, especially if your horse has a pretty face.

    For those of you who are fans of thorowgood/Kent and masters, can you tell me whether the tree shape on these saddles is more suitable for a flat or curvy back?

    Totally agree. I bought a beautiful brown GR8 from eBay. Only wore it a few times and then gave it away. Very round shape. Ended up with a samshield shadow matte and now I'm a happy camper!

    Silica sand arena

    Does anyone else have silica sand in their outdoor and how do you like it? Last year I installed my outdoor arena after doing extensive research. The sub-base is a compacted clay, then something like...

    I made the jump to 3rd this year and honestly, if you have good changes, third 1 actually rides a lot better than the second level tests with all that counter canter and simple changes. Third 2 I...

    I agree with Manni. I think when you repeatedly show and get a poor score the judges start remembering that and even when you have a good ride they still score you low. I guess it really depends on...
