    I'd heard a lot of people rave about the BoT products and was kind of skeptical, but when I found one of the pads on sale I figured it was worth a try. My horse takes a long time to warm up, and even...

    I have the Smartpak one and I like it a lot more than Dover's halters around that price range. The leather is much nicer than I was expecting. It does bleed a little bit at first, but after that it's...

    There's a barn in my area that shows at the C's and a couple local A's, and the whole barn wears rust one day of every show. Many of the kids are very competitive at the C's and pin appropriately.

    I'm around 5'7", my horse is 15.1-15.2hh and fairly big-bodied. I don't think I look too big on him, but it's not the picture you normally see in the hunters.

    Does anyone know what happened to Eric Lamaze? It was hard to see what exactly happened on the live feed.

    In my opinion, you should always use two reins when possible. Obviously a 5 year old doesn't have big enough hands for two reins or the skill necessary to use them, and I understand using a converter...

    If the neoprene girth is similar in style to the Professionals Choice girth or Soft Touch girth, those are pretty common right now.

    The big reason that a twisted wire is considered a severe bit in USEF hunters is because the horses are ridden on much, much more contact than an AQHA hunter. So yes, you are correct that a twisted...

    I agree. I don't do HUS, but I have friends who do and I have to know how to judge the classes. To the posters saying he looks like a western horse, I disagree--he doesn't at all. It's just a...

    I'm not an expert, but for anything other than minor adjustments, my chiropractor usually says to give the horse 3+ days off.

    I agree that it all depends on the horse and what you're doing. I've ridden ones that really prefer you stay up off their back and leave them alone, and ones that want you to sit and support them.

    Agreed; a German martingale is the same as breastplate draw reins except you can't control them. IMO there aren't very many good reasons to use a German martingale, when you could get the same action...

    I also figured that dropping the back rail to the outside would make it easier for the rail to fall if the horse hits it.

    I'm not sure about the front rail; maybe he wants it to be less likely to...

    I love my AYR8. I only use it for schooling (it was CO's centennial version...black/purple--the reason it was on sale for $80 :uhoh:), but it keeps my head cool and is comfortable.

    I've heard great things about Walsh/Blue Ribbon oil, but I've never tried it. I use warm olive oil to darken tack and I'm very happy with it.

    Just to clarify, I don't want to be a vet because I like hanging around horses. I've already been pretty heavily introduced to the science aspect and it's that which I find appealing.

    Thank you...

    I know being a vet tech long-term would not work.

    Honestly, I don't think any decent judge would mark you off for using a loose ring, especially if you're just showing at the local level or small A's. I kind of doubt they'd even notice.
