    The soft outer layer of leather is both stitched and adhered with glue to the grain leather of the flap. Using a lot of oil can ruin the adhesive bond and create wrinkles and bubbles. (And this goes...

    The *horse* may also be built asymmetrically... one shoulder developed more than the other can cause the saddle to slip to one side. In that case, a shim only in the pocket over the less-developed...

    Take a critical look at the panels and overall shape of the underside of the saddle. It's likely there is uneveness causing it to slip.

    I was about to recommend the same (first link) Equus article as merry. Interesting and enlightening information.

    I built a 36x36 barn with 9' lean along one side in NE Indiana in 2003. My quotes from Morton, Wick and Cleary varied as widely as yours.

    I'll add that one to my collection of "myths about horses".
    Horses don't have special flotation bladders in their lungs which activate and help keep them afloat while swimming. And yes, as you...

    Kerrits CrossOver breech does not have a seam below the knee. They do have a front snap and zip... not a tight, though the material is a bit lighter than traditional breech fabric. Elastic at bottom.

    No lack of options here! You can't throw a carrot without hitting a horse in the butt. I'll send you a PM with the details, but my stall at Motlow Creek Equestrian Center will be open for a few...

    Walsh makes them. We've sold a couple to jumper riders. The foam compresses quite easily, so lots of cushion, but not a lot of width once in the horse's mouth. It *is* made for racing. Not one I can...

    If you find the twist on the Celeste too wide, I suggest trying the Wexford. It's a true AP. In addition to a good variety of panel options for the horse, BC also offers flap and block options for...

    I'd pin them as you wrote them. Poor form over fences can be dangerous, and limited adjustability (the double adds) could get you in trouble, too. Those two things, especially jumping badly, are much...

    You're not being unreasonable, but you also don't have to risk life and limb. Ask your landlord if it's okay to use rock salt on the ice dam. Should be easy enough to dump it on the problem area and...

    Is he turned out in a large enough area, and for a long enough time, to blow off steam when you're not able to ride? Lots of horses get cranky and rambunctious when they're stuck in a stall or small...

    I used the WB Kool Coat last year. Like all clothing in the summer, it did make the horse sweat, but his skin temperature (to touch) was cooler under the sheet than the parts of him still exposed....

    My gelding wasn't insured.

    Taking 22' out shortened it by 22'. ;) A couple more feet and he would not have been able to properly digest food, so he was "lucky".
