    I would suggest Gatsby, who is an Oldenburg. I have a mare due with her first to him for similar reasons, hopefully we'll have the baby on the ground sometime in July!

    Not sure about the big horse flies, but for gnat's other irritants, I've had good luck soothing the area and keeping them off of my mares and gelding with Belly balm as someone mentioned above. Also,...

    Another vote for the premier equine boots. Sturdy and well made, plus when I had one destroyed in a freak horse incident-the fence ripped the boot and her leg was okay-and SmartPak replaced the hind...

    Saddle Pad for monoflap saddle

    I have a Devocoux Chiberta in an 18.5'' seat with the 3A flap (so extra long, but not extra forward). I have an XL Ecogold XC pad which I love-however the girth loop isn't in the right place-they've...

    I have what I believe are the original air cooled (I bought the ones from smart pak). Love them-super light weight and easy to clean. I do think that the air cooled does keep the legs a bit cooler...

    OP what did you end up deciding to do? I definitely understand where you're coming from-my 11yo OTTB event mare (who was about ready to go prelim a few years ago), has a back injury that I think...

    You can always work on your eye on the flat as well! You could be riding a circle and start counting when you think you are three strides away from the wall, or set out a cone on the ground and...

    Ebates has free shipping on old navy and 25% off your purchase I think! If you aren't using ebates on your online shopping, you should be-though I definitely buy way more online than I should!

    Just noticed that this thread I started 2 years ago had been commented on and thought I'd give a little update! I did not breed my mare at that time, but she was actually bred late this summer and is...

    What I had been told about skull caps, is that they are designed with the flexible brim (whether worn flipped up or level), is that if you get lawn darted into the ground, that the visor will give,...

    Doesn't the horse/rider combination have to be qualified for WEG together? Meaning that Phillip would be the only other one but Boyd that could ride the horse? Or does the qualification stay with the...

    I have been happy with my SmartPak SunShield shirt. When it's 90 degrees and humid you're going to be warm no matter what, but it is really breatheable and light weight. I've washed it a bunch (I...

    I love love love the full seat pipers for schooling (though I agree that the waist is a little stretchy and I have to wear the belt, but when I do they stay just fine). I like the wheat ones, but...

    Totally know the feeling. My OTTB has had this since her first XC school, and it's the best feeling when she can look through a line and know where we're going to end up. You definitely know that...

    Ugh my OTTB mare is like this....except she hasn't outgrown it. It seems to be just as bad at 11 as it was at 5! Maybe worse! She now has two bumps on her head that I'm hoping eventually go away,...

    Yep, my 11yo OTTB mare has decided that the arena that we've been riding in for 2+ years is scary anytime the mounting block moves six inches, etc. She doesn't have a bad spook at all, more of just a...
