    I'm so glad this turned out ok! I am nervous about this exact situation, and I have my contact info on my bridle, on my saddle, and when I'm far from home I braid a tag into his mane. Glad everyone...

    There are lots of options, but I had the most fun at Point Reyes Arabian Adventures. Cantering through the forest, beautiful trails and fun, well trained horses. I did not do a beach ride, but I know...

    I'm sure there are fancier products, but when I bought my absolutely filthy trailer I was able to use good old Bon Ami non-scratching cleaner and a no-scratch sponge. I tried using one of the...

    Your circumstances are hard, when there doesn't seem to be an answer. I know you said you treated for ulcers, but your horse's laziness symptoms were exactly what cued me in to my horse's ulcers. He...

    There are some dressage-trail mix saddles, if you're still interested. I have a Solstice, and love it. Plenty of rings, nice balanced position, cushy seat you can make even more comfy with a fleece...

    Another Hawks fan here! What a great idea. If my horse didn't already have colors I might go for it...

    I have an inexpensive nylon halter with my horse's name and colors from Chicks Saddlery. Many...

    My barefoot horse blew his abscess after two weeks out the heel bulb. I could definitely see a reddened area after soaking twice a day in Epsom salts, never any brown small spots like that. I poked...

    We had two, brothers, they were awesome. One died of cancer young, his poor brother has never been the same. Both were the lowest in the hierarchy of barn dogs, bossed around by the three-legged...

    I have a yoga ball chair, and have for more than five years. It's just a yoga ball, nothing fancy. I have/had a bad hip (horse injury years ago) that chairs exacerbate, but the yoga ball is great....

    I made one with elastic, velcro and neoprene. But there are some good options out there.

    My friend has this one for her iPhone5 (with room to spare for size comparison), seems sturdy....

    This is all very interesting! Here in Northern California there is almost no humidity, and the bugs aren't awful. It was 108 when I got to the barn yesterday afternoon, and every horse was standing...

    My gelding also had this last month. The sheath and area in front were swollen. Of course I imaged the worst-case scenario, then calmed down and thought about insects. The flies had just gotten...

    I made some reins, biothane is super tough to work with (I'm also domestically challenged.) I resorted to true tools, which I'm much more comfortable with. I pre-drilled holes with a small drill bit,...

    I made something similar to the runners armband, I just happened to make it out of velcro, elastic and neoprene. I wear it on my leg, super easy access. I prefer the neoprene because I often ride...

    Depending on what you feed, I love California Trace. It is formulated for grass hay diets. I think minerals need a carrier to bind them together, Ca trace uses rice bran and almond hull meal. There...

    The Cache Creek ride is right around the corner from you! Great ride, I've volunteered it and ridden too. Wonderful management, they'd be glad to have you. I went and stayed the night, took in the...

    Another Nor Cal rider here too! (Auburn area) Endurance has been the best, worst, coolest, scariest, bravest, most fun thing I've ever done. I've learned more about myself and my horse in a few years...

    I can only speak for my Hi-Tie, but I love it. Horse is content, but has also tested it (spinning around for an hour when his buddy left) and no problems. I do use a cotton rope, not the bungee thing...

    In my case it was just practice, practice, practice. I worked with another horse and we'd trot until my horse was just gonna turn into an idiot, and then take a break, then do it again. Same with...

    Oh, wow, I can't even imagine cold like that! If you need a vacation, you can come visit. We're having a cold spell in my part of Northern California, I got snow for the first time in 5 years, and...

    Use whatever tack and gear are comfortable for you and your horse! I ride in a dressage saddle, no one looks twice, except if someone covets your saddle! I use running hiking shoes and half chaps, as...

    The seraonline document is great, but I know when I started it make me very nervous! I don't have the type of trails where I can average 8 MPH, since I am usually dealing with rocky cliffs with...

    I don't use the easyboots, but I do use Renegades. I get about 600-800 miles out of a pair (one season), then they become backups. I have boots from 3 years ago that I can still use, probably 1200...

    Good thing you stayed on! I did not with my scariest thing: A Pterodactyl. Oh, wait, that was what my HORSE thought it was. It was a paraglider whose giant sail lifted off the trail right in front of...

    I love my Solstice. The leg position is more straight, but not full-on dressage straight (if that makes sense). I think they say it is not for jumping because the stirrup bars are straighter maybe? I...
