    I'm going to stay out of whether the kid deserved it or if the horse is nasty, and all that.

    I just want to point out that some of you think that sense the horse is so much bigger than a child,...

    Teeth has already been ruled out. As far as possible painful cycles, that's easy enough to check. When we were breeding her she was very consistent and easy, and her insides always looked so good, I...

    She's 7 but is still fairly green. Started her for 60 days as a 3yr old, then she was a mom for a while. Got serious with her this past fall. She's currently going in an oval eggbut(3 piece).
    She's...

    Flash, Figure 8, or Micklem???

    I don't know what to do with one of my mares. In a regular bridle, she tends to root, pull, or sometimes just lay on your hand.
    We put her in a flash, and it really helped with all that, but she...

    I just want to make a point I don't think has been touched on much so far in this thread.

    OP, you realize to make your set up remotely safe as others have pointed out you will need to ad a...

    Yep, as soon as the testicles are down. However, I always wait until their first winter because of the bugs.

    There was a 1/2 dutch 1/4 perch 1/4 standardbred mare at my last trainer's barn. Hunter/jumper barn. Horse was ok, but not well suited for jumping. Weak hindquarter, big head, big draft feet, not...

    I have an 07 3 horse slant bumper that I bought new and love it! It still looks new, and have had no problems with anything and it lives outside. I ordered mine so I got exactly what I wanted as far...

    I tried it all last week and like the results. I have one mare who has quite the "dragon" reputation that was frankly well earned. So between a correctly fitting saddle and putting the sheep pad...
  10. The best thing I ever did was get my dumpster!...

    The best thing I ever did was get my dumpster! All of my manure goes into it. Yes, that includes pasture manure too. I pick my pastures at least twice a week. I have virtually no stable flies and...

    Your Friend Is wrong. I have a PJ and they have more than one kind of material they use for their trees.
  12. I almost feel stupid that in over 20 years of...

    I almost feel stupid that in over 20 years of riding, I have never heard the half pad directly on skin use before. The Dover rep I talked to directed me to look at pictures of Debbie Mcdonald and...

    Update: I got a PJ!!! The trainer who's a rep had one in my size that was a wide tree so I got to take it home for a bit. I really liked riding in it, but it was up to my horse. The difference was...
  14. Anyone use their half pad UNDER their regular pad?

    I was just talking to a Dover rep as I'm thinking about taking a saddle on a test ride and as we were discussing the issues I'm having with my saddle and its fit she asked if I tried a Mattes Spine...

    I was just looking at the Bates saddles. I like that you can not only change the gullet but also the risers. I am putting the Elevation saddle on my list to try!

    Just found out one of the local trainers here is a rep for PJ and she has several wide tree saddles I can try. Opinions on PJ's?? I know they are a pretty nice saddle, but are they fairly easy to fit?
  17. UPDATE #7 Have not purchased a saddle in 15 yrs, have no idea what I'm doing, help??

    I need a new saddle as my current one does not fit my mare at all and is hurting her according to my chiro and her behavior certainly supports that theory too. I have not bought any saddle at all in...

    I saw this on FB and I agree with those who think the blogger is quite lacking in her knowledge of what it takes to "handle" an upper level horse.

    I ride my jumper in a gag bit, the horror!!!! I...

    I use a "cheat" the first couple times I want them to canter. I set up a tiny crossrail, trot over it, they almost always land in canter and I just sit quietly only slowing them down if needed. After...

    My vet recommended adding them with the One AC, but don't know how similar that is to what you are using. The One Ac didn't do anything for her anyway. I had really good results with electrolytes and...

    The girl who rides her a couple days a week for me also suggested a gag, but I've always been "afraid" of them. Using 2 reins you gives you the ability to just use it as a snaffle and ad more if...

    She does root occasionally, but mostly gets behind the vertical and just gives you a really good pull. Doesn't run off, open her mouth, just pulls you out of the tack. She likes to goof off during a...

    She doesn't cross her jaw or avoid the bit. She just drops her head and pulls you out of the tack. It looked like the ad for the Kineton said it helped with pulling which is why I am thinking about...
  24. Anyone use a Kineton noseband on their jumper?

    I have a jumper who likes to try and pull you over on the backsides of lines. Not interested in using a harsher bit as she is quite sensitive to her current one and other than the pulling have no...

    As a person who sells Ram trucks, the full crew cab like yours has a shorter bed than the regular short bed that comes with a quad cab.
