    Has the saddle fitter actually physically been back out recently to look at the fit? If not, then get her back out. If she puts up a fuss, call her boss, call his boss. Obviously saddle needs to be...

    Thank you everyone for your posts and kind words, they really do mean a lot to me. It's nice to hear from people who have and are going through something similar, I can really say I've been feeling...

    It's normal behaviour for guys that have some major anger and emotional issues. I dated a guy like this once and I can tell you, it was an awful awful experience. It's not acceptable behaviour and...

    Also, get any of your friends/trainer at the barn to send you pictures of your horse! Obviously it's not the same but I've found that it helps a bit.
  5. This is crazy, I literally just posted a thread...

    This is crazy, I literally just posted a thread on a topic very similar for this so I sympathize with you a great deal! I can weight bare somewhat, but I'm extremely limited in my mobility as well. ...
  6. How to cope when your life is put on hold?

    I was in an accident over a month ago that has unfortunately left me with an injury that leaves me with very limited mobility. I've already had one surgery for it which had some minor complications,...

    If my barn had cases of something contagious like this, and there wasn't a quarantine in effect and my horse wasn't showing any symptoms, and I hauled out for a show or a lesson and then there was a...

    I believe that the only difference would be the cut at the front of the pad, as long as you don't mind a bit more of the pad poking out at the front when under a dressage saddle, I don't see why it...

    Definitely tell the rep to come out and see it, I'm surprised they didn't offer to do that in the first place. And if they don't then like sammicat said, get their boss to come out. I've had nothing...

    I had a bates caprilli close contact saddle for about a year, I really liked it and found it very comfortable but it didn't fit my horse unfortunately. If you can try one it might be worth your time.

    No advice re: paper work etc. but I also vote for just driving through the U.S., crossing the border can be a nightmare at the best of time and your wait time to cross both ways will most likely be...

    When I flat my horse outside of lessons I send them into a forward trot a few times around the arena each direction, I do spiral circles, I flex them to the inside and to the outside, I do leg...

    No, they are not all like that. It would really depend on how the horse is brought along, not everyone will take the time to do proper flat work unfortunately. I would try her in fatter or thinner...

    I didn't watch Anderson's dvds to help get my horse in the trailer but I have a cowboy friend out here that does a lot of similar type stuff so I imagine how he got my horse on the trailer would be...

    If your horse goes in a big fat loose ring snaffle and just needs "a little more" over fences, why not just try a thinner loose ring? I also tend to go for a full cheek with a flash and that seems...

    I'm not much of a hockey fan but I can hear my dad upstairs rooting for the Habs and he seems quite pleased at the moment :p

    Can you not just take a normal cotton lunge line to a local tack store and have them replace the snap with that type of buckle? If any tack stores in your area do blanket repairs and/or leather...

    My gelding is barefoot and has great feet, we ride on trails, gravel, pavement, arenas, and we jump. He gets some mild cracks in the summer and sometimes he gets some chips but nothing major, I do...

    Like others have said, gradually increase the turnout. If you have a stall that opens into a paddock then that would obviously be ideal for your horse but I know not all of us are lucky enough to...

    I only read your first post in your original thread. I will let you know what I would do if this was my horse (please disregard if you have done any of the things that I suggest).

    I'm not sure if you've dealt with strangles or not before but it IS that bad, REALLY. Some horses might not get it as badly as others but there's always a couple that get hit really hard. When we...

    Thank you for the info, it sounds like their No Bows might be a better option for what I'm looking for!
  24. Back on Track Quick Wraps vs. traditional no bows/leg wraps?

    I've been debating getting a set of the BOT quick wraps for my gelding instead of using traditional wraps at shows and after our harder work outs. Does anyone have any experience with them? How...

    On that note I'm not sure how the OP is healthy enough to jump 4' jumpers but can't ride an OTTB?



    Riding a jumper PERIOD is a lot of hard work and can be hard on the back, heck just jumping a...
