    Oh I 100% agree. Jumping my mare is 100% less scary than with my first horse, Max - Max was coming down the levels, older, and probably topped out at 2'9". If I blew it there wasn't much he could do...

    Yes! This happened on my tall boots, and I was really bummed and took them to my local cobbler without much hope. He had it fixed in no time, and it was only about $20.

    These are all really good! I'm going to have to think about all of these...and the different methods...hmm...

    Agreed - my mare came with perfect x-rays, passed vet with flying colors. Then still ended up having an issue! Totally resolved, but why buy a problem. I probably would have felt differently before I...

    I'll second those Grand Prix! I love mine. I had some durability / wearing out problems with my Treadsteps, and switched over. No problems since!

    Absolutely! We used to have "fun days" at the barn, and we never really knew what the trainer would have in store. Several times I'd show up and Max would just have a halter on, and that's all I...

    Oh no! Big big hugs for you. That's awful, but you're doing what you have to do. Max is still living happily in his pasture, but he is 19.5 now, and I know someday I will have to make that call too. ...

    That's where I started. I didn't learn to ride until college. It isn't like they are taking time, money or resources from the advanced riders. They don't meet at the same time, and there is more then...
