    Actually, if you can get over the initial embarrassment, it is probably the best way to find a therapist. If you need to start from "scratch" be prepared to meet with therapists until you find...

    Their policy has changed considerably. I sold saddles on eBay for a long time (if I see a saddle that I like that's priced below market value I will pick it up to flip it) but I won't sell there any...

    Ebay is not such a great option any more since eBay always finds on behalf of the buyer if there is a dispute. You can think your saddle is sold and have someone return it at the last minute! One...

    Actually, that is not how it worked with my friend who would have been very happy to accept an offer. Have you seen their consignment agreement?

    Honestly, I'd be annoyed but not surprised. I haven't found Pelham to be the most user-friendly to deal with either as a buyer or as a consigner.

    The last time I was saddle shopping they had the...

    I'm in a similar position. Stopped riding at the end of January, wasn't able to ride again until about 2 weeks ago. My horses are turned out 24/7 but the snow was so deep they didn't move around...

    I think that buying a horse after a year of riding can be risky but it's really hard to know without seeing you ride and seeing the horse you want to buy. If you buy a good solid citizen you will be...

    You might also try www.horseclicks.com and look on some of the Facebook group pages. I just sold a very nice Kieffer jumping saddle to a woman in Missouri who saw it on Foxhunters Online.

    Absolutely agree.

    You should not buy from eBay unless you know what you need and really understand the used market. Much better to go to a tack store that sells consignment saddles so your...

    I think the results are highly variable depending on 1) the skill of the therapist and 2) how much you are willing to put into it.

    Find someone that you are willing to talk to and trust, go with...

    My stepfather has always been a delight. He's a warm, welcoming person who never stood in the way of my relationship with my mother.

    I had a horse who came to me with a tendency to rear. He was a smart horse and didn't want to hurt himself but had learned that he could scare a rider into getting off. He never went way up, but he'd...

    It takes time for true friendships to evolve, group activities help but you have to fan the flames and develop some shared experiences.

    Join a bookgroup -- many times your local library will have one.

    Interesting idea. I am one of those people who suffers from bacterial skin infections caused by a number of insignificant things -- think insect bites. My doctor says I'm just pre-disposed. I haven't...

    Yes, definitely start by having a saddle fitter out. Preferably one who isn't selling a specific brand. They can tell you if your current saddle fits and what brands to look at if it doesn't.

    I would also call the vet, especially when you are also a client. If the vet suggests a visit and/or treatment then you can ask the BO to get authorization from the owner.

    I'm surprised, though,...

    Yes. I sold my Stackhouse the day the ad went up. I also sold an older Ainsley Chester. I've also had good luck on Facebook and on Horseclicks.

    I'm sorry your new horse is getting picked on. Establishing a pecking order in a herd is the most stressful time.

    That said, I don't agree with the process your BM used. We always wait at least...

    Good that you have him massaged and use a fitter. Just keep in mind that even small changes in saddle fit can bother your horse. I have my saddles fitted 2x/year and I'm not sure I've ever gone three...

    I use Webber Style (T-Bar) leathers on all my saddles. I started using them when I got my monoflap and decided they were more comfortable across the board.

    Since you say it happens 20 minutes into a ride, could it be pain? Is your saddle fitting well? If he starts out fine and then gets worse, it may not be food related at all.
