    FedEx was significantly cheaper and had a better price on insurance. I paid $45 for several saddles going a good distance. USPS recently changed their pricing structure and I don't believe does...

    I don't think above the local level it will fly in the hunters. If having his mouth closed doesn't freak him out, you could try a crank noseband.

    I'm not sure how it fits different saddles, but the Success pads are nice (and non-slip!).

    My only comment about not scoping is apparently some horses do not heal from GG and need a different treatment - hence why my vet likes to scope at the end of treatment as well. If you don't see an...

    I have some sunshirts from Sports Authority that were about $20 each and they are cooler than a short sleeved shirt on sunny days up to about 85. After that, I don't know if anything can help. It...

    Yes, foam can be replaced with wool. I believe my fitter charges around $450 for that. I would ask around for recommendations for independent saddle fitters who service the area and do wool...

    I have a pair of Deniro half chaps with the synthetic calf liner and it is definitely a bit rougher on your saddle. It isn't so bad that I won't use them, but I would think twice about repurchasing...

    After 17 years, the foam must have broken down to a good extent and can't be providing much cushioning. I went through this a year ago when I finally parted with my saddle of the same age. I could...

    I have one of these and it is my least favorite sun shirt. I find it really hot and the zip up neck makes it sweltering.

    On a recent 80 degree day in Wellington, I saw someone cantering along the bridle paths in full chaps. They looked toasty :)

    Has anyone tried this yet? http://www.farmhousetack.com/kerrits-ladies-show-competitors-koat/

    I am in the camp that already has a wardrobe of wool coats and don't particularly want to break the...

    Ask your vet for a long term tranquilizer like resperine.

    I am so sorry to hear this.

  14. Poll: Riding as an adult is an entirely different game...

    Riding as an adult is an entirely different game than riding as a junior. I also thought/hoped I would do a GP by the time I was 30. I did my senior year of high school at a community college so I...

    I recommend you watch the 90 mustang makeover to see how far a horse can and should come in a short time. There are many methods used and the vast majority are very gentle. The horses have been...

    EPM and/or Cushings? The twitching and non-specific motor issues makes me think of EPM and the sweating/too easy of a keeper make me think of Cushings. Hope you get an answer. Not knowing is not...

    I agree your horse is a likely candidate for ulcers and I agree 95% of advice on OTTB Connect is nonsense at best :) My very pleasant and ultra laid back OTTB had a few ulcers when we scoped.

    This is correct. When I came back to showing after a decade-long hiatus, it was the most noticeable change.

    More because of preventing colic and founder than any ulcer issues, I would want to transition him slowly from 12 hours of OK pasture to 24 hours of really good pasture. Perhaps start with 12 hours...

    I have gotten a response through Brookledge with their online quote form a number of times. Perhaps give that a try if you are having a hard time getting a call back. They have always been very...

    I really think everyone genuinely wants what is best for you and your horse. I don't think a single person suggesting x-rays was recommending surgery, simply that the images could confirm the...

    I just read this whole thread. Thinking of you and hoping Bear has found significant relief from the new pain meds. Fingers crossed!

    The new site is www.tryon.com - totally annoying that the old site doesn't link to the new one. In any case, both that site and the Equestrian Sport/pbiec.coth.com sites haven't been working today.

    Did you scope her? According to my vet, there are some horses that Gastroguard doesn't work for and they need a combination of other drugs to heal the ulcers. If you didn't get a clear scope at the...
