    Girth loops, not billet loops ;-) The ones on the bottom!

    And I can't believe it didn't dawn on me just to sew (or have sewn, who are we kidding here LOL) a second strap on, or to move it down.
  2. Modifying girth straps on a saddle pad for a long flapped saddle?

    Anyone done this? How well did it work?

    I lucked into a saddle that fits my leg wonderfully, and fits my horse. But the flaps are about 1.5" too long for my saddle pads - if I try and make it work...

    Um, while many farmers/trainers may feel that way, that is a lovely piece of social media image engineering. (I know the person and horse IRL). NOT a farmer. He's actually a beginner and that's his...

    Keep in mind his fees are in Canadian funds. Not great for breeders here, but it reduces costs by about 30% for American breeders.

    This was posted on their FB page yesterday:

    Have you tried the OneK in a long oval? I have the same issue with a lot of helmets - pinch over the forehead and loose on the sides. COs fit me great regular OneK and Samsheild were close, but the...

    It relates to the withdrawal of the EN1384 rating in Europe. If I understand correctly, there were some Eastern European...

    It's weird. And not all people shipping in sets the horses off. It seems to be when you have groups out there going.

    Resident horses don't even get a second glance.
  15. PSA: If you're shipping out to school/gallop/clinic etc.....

    ....could you PLEASE use some common sense and courtesy to those who board at the facility? Especially one where eventing isn't the focus and horses may not be used to this?

    There's a fantastic...

    This. I feel less bad about it with the chain stores, but that $200-$300 you're looking at makes a big difference to the little guys that we all need to stay in business.

    Fixing a pinhole in the seat of a saddle

    I lucked into a new saddle that's a vast improvement over my older one, and in great condition except for a small pinhole/puncture in the seat. It hasn't ripped or torn away from the hole, but the...

    Agreed! I have a 2009 that I use to tow a 2H BP and it's perfect for my needs. (Reasonably flat, local towing). I needed something that doubled as a daily driver.

    In my experience, with animals large and small, the decision when you see a beloved companion in extreme pain is easier than you may think.

    It's not easy, but you would know the right thing to do.
