    I did buy the same brand as my trainer, but only because I rode in many saddles and liked it the best. Rather than profiting from my purchase, my trainer passed along the saddle at her discount rate....

    I was stuck in an awe-inspiring traffic jam last week. Gridlock. The guy behind me was leaning on his horn.

    I had this momentary fantasy of backing up and impaling his car on my hitch. I didn't do...

    If I were looking for what you'd described, I'd at least sit in one of these:

    I love Canonize. That's a very classy horse who ran in Stakes races and earned his connections $270,000 with only 18 starts. That's impressive.

    There's a gap in his race record so I'd want to know...

    Do you need a shimmable pad?

    I keep a Mattes pad (with pockets) for the periods of time when my horse has changed shape . . . or I have a new horse/saddle combo and I'm waiting for my saddle...

    Talk to your vet about light sedation.
    Always work with someone else (you need more than two hands and it sounds like your mare could hurt you or herself)

    True, Berney Bros. saddles are quite inexpensive here. I bought one for less than $300. Perfectly good saddle but didn't quite fit my TB. I sold it almost immediately for a bit more.

    My draft-x mare used to go only so far and then plant her feet and refuse to move! I used to joke that I'd put a quarter in at the barn and it had run out.

    If you asked her to move on she'd buck...

    Sure you can, as long as you don't want a French saddle! I like the English and German saddles just fine and they are not as expensive. If you are willing to buy a brand that's not trendy, you can do...

    Please be careful about wearing shoes around horses that don't protect your ankle like paddock boots. Last weekend i was in the pasture and my horse spooked and landed on my heel. I was not wearing...

    I have seen a horse's back improve with a well fitting saddle and a sheepskin pad. She was an older horse and she just needed more padding.

    FWIW, I owned a Saddleright pad too. It was a bit too...

    We have one of those. A slow feed hay net doesn't slow them down much and a cribbing muzzle won't help much either. It didn't take the fat pony very long to figure out how to eat with the muzzle.

    My saddle fitter recommends a sheepskin half pad for older horses that need a bit more cushioning. It's important to get your saddle fitted to accommodate the pad.

    I often use a thinline ultra pad...

    eBay is fine for buyers but because sellers are not protected the way they used to be, there are fewer saddles on it.

    I've bought/sold through Facebook pages, using www.horseclicks.com and my...

    I thought I'd asked her about one before, but it was a long time ago. She does nice work, though, so worth asking.

    My horses are trace clipped and live out. I rarely use more than a medium weight (200 g) blanket. Occasionally, when it's super cold, I'll use a heavy weight. I don't think you need a very heavy...

    To add to this (with which I agree), electrolytes are meant to replace salt, potassium, and chloride that are lost during hard workouts in the heat. Most people now feed them routinely, which is not...

    As others have said, you should make sure you are covered on their insurance. And I'd try to find out whether you can legally charge them for trailering before you exchange money.

    Don't look at it as a confrontation. Just thinking about the conversation that way makes your hackles go up.

    Honestly, I hadn't focused on the fact you are there 25 hours/week. That's a ridiculous...

    I make my own moisturizers. For my face I use a blend of oils -- rosehip seed oil, argan oil, tamanu oil, carrot seed oil, etc. Many of these oils are "dry" oils so they absorb into your skin very...

    I have found that there is not necessarily a correlation between the fit of the saddle and its cost. I've seen far too many custom saddles that never fit and I have had a few gems that cost under...
