    FWIW, I need a very forward flap, and get very little help by going up in seat size. And, honestly, I find most of the mid range off the rack saddles have options that work with my conformation. I...

    Stories like this is exactly why after I hit the awesome roommate jackpot TWICE (the only two I've ever had. One is my best friend), I quit having roommates. There's just no way to keep getting that...

    It's only about an 8 hour drive from DC to Lexington. Not a bad haul at all, in the scheme of things.

    I've done variations on the bib clip theme for horses in light work who get hot or for horses that lived out. Most have been fine with minimal to no blanketing. A little "exhaust strip" between the...

    I have something very similar in my little 800 sq foot house. It was installed last spring and was more of an answer for AC than heat, so I haven't TRULY tested it in that department yet (prior to...

    My absolute most favorite song in the whole world. I actually don't know WHY. Maybe the imagery? I heard it the first time at a Wilco concert, and it punched me in...

    Yes. You wouldn't want to gallop a horse down a long stretch of road who's never been on hard going, but gradually building up, first walking, then trotting, can be quite good for them. And if the...

    I use draw reins on my horse for two very specific reasons, that are related but different.

    Out hacking, I refer to them as my "emergency brake." They aren't really added brakes, but, when...

    Smilesthepony posted while I was writing and I agree 110% with all of that! Particularly the way of riding, allowing the horses to balance and care for themselves.

    Time off in the spring/summer, a less rigorous schedule between hunts (most don't do too much more than hack or a little flatwork between hunts if they go out regularly, while event horses get a day...

    Oh my goodness!!! I LOVE my new Lister Stars!!! So much lighter and smaller, but very powerful. Toby took a lot longer than I like to clip today (his skin is a mess, so I had to fiddle fart my way...

    I have a 1999 Honda CRV that I DRIVE INTO THE GROUND. I adore this little car. It is steadfast and loyal. It has been to Chicago and back a couple of times, among everywhere else it goes. I routinely...

    Have to say, my knee and ankle are MUCH happier in good old fashion fillis irons after breaking my leg and having surgery. They like the solid base the fillis irons give, versus the uber flexible...

    Having spent a few summers hefting western saddles, I would heft an Albion any day, even on the tallest of horses.

    I have unfriended on person because of politics. But it was because, for whatever reason, the combination of things she posted and what she said (ex, crying poor when she clearly wasn't and clearly...

    Albions are heavy, but I think if they otherwise fit, then it doesn't matter. Toby went in an Albion for a little while. He's the biggest weenie there is, and they weight didn't bother him!

    I think most of the English made saddles- County, Albion, Barnsby, Black Country, Baines, etc- are safe bets to try. As are Stubbens. I would probably stay away from French saddles, though that...

    Those heel bulb cuts can be painful. And he may be lame to the left because how it's situated may put more pressure on it to the outside.

    I would baby baby him for a few days. Maybe wrap his foot...

    OK, subk, here are a few links for you for examples.

    If you scroll down through here, you'll see a few examples of just simple tatersall stock ties. I actually have a tatersall in like a...

    Thank you for saying what I've been thinking for this whole thread, but much more eloquently.

    And comments like mvp's make me think some people have never dealt with a horse like the ones I'm...

    I love being a personal shopper!

    When I'm back in front of my compute and not distracting myself on my phone at the dentist, I'll post some links.

    And tell me about looking mannish with a tie....

    Try not to worry about the calories too much. If you get too low in your calorie count, you can actual trick your body into holding on to weight.

    My thinking is this was meant to say a stock and pin. I've never heard anything about needing a choker and pin at intermediate and above.
