    I have bought horses without a trainer's involvement, but I hear your pain.

    When I've sold horses (which is rare) I google the person when I first hear from them. I also ask them questions about...

    That's one of my favorite saddles. And you can pick them up for short $$.

    Ideally you want to work with a good saddle fitter. Hunting is not a discipline where you want to use a lot of padding to...

    Comfort for you and your horse is paramount. Since hunts can last for several hours, a saddle that doesn't fit is likely to cause problems.

    Personally, I ride with a straighter flap out hunting...

    I tow with an older Sequoia and an Equalizer hitch (anti sway bars PLUS weight distributing). I would not want to tow without a similar hitch.

    I tow frequently but locally. With the hitch, it's a...

    I love the TB/Clyde crosses. My mare is one and she is so much fun!

    It is hard to know about the ligament injury without seeing the vet records and having a really good PPE exam.

    My TB had a...

    I'm glad that the accident has served as a wake up call. It is a terrible shame that it took something this horrific to make people pay attention. 0.126 percent blood alcohol level is very drunk, not...

    Do you have an agreement from them, in writing, that they will re-imburse you if they fill your stall?

    Otherwise, no. You owed them 30 days notice and you chose to leave before your 30 days was...

    My experience has been that you can buy Schleese saddles on the used market for well under "market" value.

    I've owned two jumping saddles. Both saddles cost $4.5K plus new and i bought each for...

    It's worth trying. I restarted an OTTB that had major bitting issues . I put him in a bitless bridle (I like the LG bridle) and he immediately calmed down. Eventually, I was able to ride him in a bit...

    I have a Freeform Classic treeless saddle. I've used it on a variety of horses with great success. It's not my every day saddle but it's extremely comfortable and there have been times when I've had...

    It works with any regular bridle. I wrote a blog post about it when I started using it with my mare:

    I have had two horses that have low palates that make some bits uncomfortable for them. I've found that a PeeWee snaffle works well for them. In fact, I hunt my big draft X mare in one and she will...

    I have the Extreme. It's a really nice saddle. It hasn't been made for awhile but when I see them come up on the used market, they are reasonably priced.

    I also have a Schleese mono-flap that is...

    I'd try this. Or, look at one of the big consignment shops that lets you take a saddle on trial and see if you can try one for the days of the clinic.

    OR, find someone with a medium tree saddle...

    And yes, your friend should have given you the information up front about needing a flat bed.

    Whether or not there were alcohol or drugs involved with the accident, excessive speed was definitely a factor. There are photos published of the car.

    It depends.

    If my trainer suggested a talented amateur to ride my horse to keep him in shape, I would assume that the trainer already believes the rider capable of keeping my horse "with the...

    I'm buying second cut hay from Sweet Meadow. Expensive, but very nice and the horses don't leave any waste. They bring it in from NY as well I believe.

    I'm not sure they can enforce a "no trailering to lessons" policy. How do they know where you're going? Are you not allowed to attend clinics, either?

    I understand when barns restrict the trainers...

    Yup. We have the same horse :lol: right down to the bucking fits. It took me about six months to convince her we were on the same team. Now she's a lot of fun but I can often still feel that buck...

    It doesn't sound like either horse is a good fit for you right now. If you are still getting yourself in shape, why not considering leasing a horse for six months and then re-evaluating your needs? I...
