    We've got a G-line Hano mare and I'm kind of hooked on For Play as a stallion. The mare is an amazing jumper (maxed standards at inspection easily, ~5') and I really liked his gaits and jump. DW...

    Only joint supps we use are injectables. The bioavailability has been proven to be LOW/nil in equines for glucosamines and HA. You can use IM n-acetyl-d glucosamine for about the same or less than...

    Our eventing barn is now being over run by Lasers. Honestly, I swear they sell themselves too. DW was saddle shopping FOREVER and couldn't find what she needed for her really long legs. I think we...

    I'll add a little more to the info from the OP (my DW).

    Both our 3 and 4yo's are June babies.

    The 4yo is a Trak x DWB/TB and the second horse that we have had by that Trak stallion. We got the...

    If you're 5'10, you probably need a bigger seat. It's not related to the "size of your bumm" ala a D-coux rep... but the length of your femur.

    Mike Corcoran Saddle - Anyone Have One?

    DW has been on the search for a jump saddle for several months. Because of her REALLY long femur in comparison to her lower leg, the vast majority of saddles don't work for us.

    We have Centaur, three x wide rails with two narrow strands in between. I like this better than four wide strands b/c you can duck through it easier.
