  7. Reasonably priced larger used saddles - where are they??

    DD needs a new saddle. She needs an 18" - she's currently 5'8" with a long thigh and still growing. I don't have $2000 to spend on a saddle, but the only ones I see on used sites in this size are...

    We went out to see the girls, but didn't ride. Our barn also doesn't turnout or clean stalls on Christmas, so we took care of that while we were there. Of course, we had to get photos with the...

    Voltaren ER & yoga.

    I was having a lot of knee/shin/leg pain this fall - bad enough it was keeping me awake. After testing to rule out some scary stuff, it turned out that it was just too many...

    We use Castille soap on all leather - it's super gentle and doesn't dry things out. I use olive oil as a conditioner.

    OP - I feel for you. My barn is also a club that is run by a board. It has it's own unique set of challenges sometimes. We have also had some folks who were less than polite to others, especially...

    There was a video I saw that had a girl open a framed photo of her pony who was wearing a bow, with the parent/trainer/someone holding it. You could have Santa hold him, even. :)

    Personally, I wouldn't. That is going to add a large amount of bulk/pressure across the back, which won't be comfortable for your horse. Hand stitching wouldn't be strong enough (unless you're a...

    DD wears Treadstep Rosas and adores them. She's *only* 5'7" but has room to grow. They're neither low nor high rise. I also like the ROMFH Lexingtons, although they're not sock bottom.

    All of our littel kids ride in these. I'd think the number of kids who have been "freed" versus dragged far outweighs those who have gotten hung up on them. I rode in them myself for a bit after an...

    It does not sound like your mare is a good fit for you. Being over-horsed is not fun for anyone. You sound very sensible, and I think you know your answer. I'm sure your parents aren't going to...
