    If your feet are falling asleep, you are jamming your heels down. You're probably pushing your legs forward and getting into a bit of a chair seat. This is something I've been struggling with for a...

    I have recently discovered the web reins with the stoppers every few inches. They do help with the reins sliding (or being pulled) out of my fingers. But more importantly, I notice that they are...

    I have a OTTB that I purchased for $800 a year ago, which is less then the adoption fee at our local horse rescues. I saw him on Craigslist. He was in a dirt paddock the next town over, being feed...

    I have tried lots of different things on my rescue grey OTTB. Bleach, peroxide, whitening shampoos did nothing. The most effective thing I've found so far is Goop. Put it on dry, let it sit for 5...

    I like the wide track. I don't like the light weight.

    It is hard for me to recommend one or the other because I don't know what your goals are. To build your confidence back up? To have fun with your horse? To be successfully showing at a certain level?...

    The only off the rack boots I have ever found that fit my 16.5" calves are Effingtons and Mountain Horse. Sadly Effingtons aren't made anymore, but you can find them all over the used tack market.

    I bought my OTTB because he reminded me of my husband. Same personality, same roman nose. They are both jumpers. Athletic, strong, opinionated and worth the effort.

    Can you ask the saddle shop what oil they used to clean it? Maybe a different oil will darken differently.

    I love the Thornhill 24k. It is very comfortable and has nice grippy leather. I like it better than my Antares. New they run around $1300. You can find used ones for under $600.

    It is the worst feeling to be afraid of just the one horse. Especially when it is a horse you enjoyed riding before.

    I guess I'd say get back on him in a controlled environment where you feel...

    It could have been me writing this post. I've had my OTTB for nine months. I wasn't looking to buy a horse either, but while I was helping a friend look I found him and had to have him. At month 5,...

    Manna-Pro sells a pelleted rice bran. All of the hard keepers at our barn are fed it. I've also had success with Cool Calories. My OTTB won't eat powdered supplements, so he only gets it when he is...

    I love the Wacoals. Love, love, love the Wacoals. What I love most about them is that there is a huge range of styles and sizes that are carried at Dillard's so I can actually try them on. Even aside...

    Beet pulp and rice bran. Rice bran pellets if your barn won't do wet feed. My OTTB is boarded and we worked hard to get him up to weight. Beet pulp and rice bran was the magic combination.

    I have found that baby pads tend to slip back more when the horse has prominent withers or when I use a thick half pad.

    My size 3 shoe wears a large bell boot in the cheap rubber ones. So I'd guess an x-large for a size 5. Really, he could go up to an x-large, but he has such low heels that he steps all over the...
