    I recently purchased a Skito pad that fills in the hollows behind the shoulders and the low part of the back. It has taken some trial and error to get it to work for different saddles/pads, but it...

    OP, hunters aren't a big thing in the Arabian world. That said, Kristin Hardin from CA might be able to give you some insight on marketing him and may even have a buyer for you.

    It sounds to me that you're saying she got worse when started being pushed? I would tone it down a bit and push a little less. I know that can be frustrating, but then you'll be able to tell if...

    I'm a huge fan of Suave. It gets sudsy and rinses easily, even in cold water. My absolute fave shampoo is Ultra from Schnieders, but for regular at-home washing I've used diluted Suave for decades.

    My old cushingoid pony is on prascend, and does not get depressed. That said, she sheds, but by no means gets a slick summer coat. I'm putting off raising her doseage as I don't want her to get...

    My 9 year old is wearing boots for the first time this year. She's tall for her age and I thought she didn't look right in jods anymore.

    While I mostly agree with this, I would think a conversation re: show fees is completely appropriate. Trainers need feedback. Not just "we're in" or "we're out", but also "we're in but this is...

    I'm near you, I'm a trainer, and I think the rates are high.

    My day fee includes coaching/riding. There should be relatively little set-up at such a short show (esp. with help from customers) and...

    I'm with beau. That said, if you're going to practice something a lot, you have to be fairly ho-hum about it and not ask for perfection 100% of the time.

    I have one for an old, sway-backed pony. As the other poster mentioned, it's not tough, but the fit is remarkable on the type that has issues with the necks slipping behind the withers. Mine was...

    IMO, I can easily see why this can happen if your horse is quick-legged and smooth and your saddle is large. Even if your saddle fits, I could see how it would happen. A horse with very little...

    I'm an Amigo fan (not Mio - have not used those). In my experience they hold up just as well as the Rambos for much less.

    I don't do h/j, but the discipline I show in has pretty much done away with allowing any type of schooling in classes at a show. I find this very detrimental. I hear the phrase all the time "do the...

    Mine aren't shod Nov - March, so I use slow-feed nets and just toss them into the feeders like hay pillows. When things dry out Apr - Oct, I just try to make sure there is always a little hay...

    I don't - I don't really see the point of using a liner if you want wool against your horse. I hose all of mine regularly. I blast them with a spray nozzle and let them air-dry. Hope that helps :)

    You know, we're told from a young age that we can do anything, if we work hard enough.

    That statement makes me shudder. It's not true. It makes us beat ourselves up when we fail, thinking we...

    These hay threads perplex me - does NO ONE but us here in the PNW pay for hay by the ton instead of by the bale???? Paying by the bale is so weird to me. You'd pay the same amount even if the...
