    An axe. If I can get underneath at the right angle it comes up in a big chunk a lot of the time, with one good swipe or two. Careful, because sometimes small chunks fly back and hit me in the head....

    Posting photos is a pain for me. When we were riding in French Creek in SD we had to pass uncomfortably close to bison. I think there were 3 or 4, right near the trailhead. I didn't want to be...

    I just received my 5 Star pad. I got the 3/4" and will be trying it out on Thursday at my lesson. I currently have an Impact Gel, but it is rock hard if it gets cold, and I'm not sold on the...

    I think so too, but the 5 Star website recommends 7/8" for trail riding.

    Even for trail riding? I currently have a 1/2" Impact Gel and I want to get a 5 Star. The saddle fitter that sold me my saddle said to go with that thickness bc saddle will tend to roll less (she's...

    A friend had a certified saddle fitter out last weekend and she said 5 Stars are the best. Of course, ask three more and you'll get three different answers. I'm going to buy one soon. My Impact...

    What is wrong with people?? If you're embarrassed at your stupidity, delete the actual post. Oh, I'm sure she still thought it was all true. Which is even more frightening.

    90% off the stuff on FB drives me nuts lately. All of the above. And today my MIL posted the one about entering your pin number backwards if someone tries to rob you at an ATM bc it will alert the...

    Not a trainer, not even close...you get what you pay for. :) The jigging horse is likely going to be the tough one to fix. It's a horrible habit, and tough to fix. If she will walk home, not jig,...

    I rode with friends. We have snow, and the woods were beautiful. My horse was a total jackass, this was the naughtiest she has ever been. Oh well. It was probably around 30 degrees, little wind,...

    The bridge st the bottom of the canyon would be a cakewalk compared to the trail ride down there. My family and I hiked a small portion of the Bright Angel Trail about two weeks ago. I was very...

    You're also well-trained, lol. Stop moving the mounting block. When he moves away, then keep him moving. Then he comes back to the mounting block. When he stands still for mounting, praise and...

    It won't always happen, but it's not worth the risk. As someone else stated, one you notice the negative effects, it is probably too late. There are much healthier and safer ways to exercise and...

    Bob Marshall for my previous horse. It's too roll-y on the Arab/QH so I bought a Big Horn Evolution.

    I'm leaning towards it being mold. I've had issues the last two years, and it wasn't visible on the hay itself. I got rid of my hay this year änd got some from different people. Total pain in the...

    I think I'd still prefer the pad to be similar in size to the saddle. I think I remember reading that a longer pad will shorten a back though, so I guess it's up to what you prefer. I've seen all...

    I'm a trail rider, so absolutely, it needs to be able to be ridden outside. It kind of baffles me that there are people that only ride in an arena, whether it's indoor or out. I get it now, but it...

    A rescue I know of gave Osphos to a mare they have, and it's done wonders so far. If it's even still an option at this point it might be worth a try. It's not cost prohibitive, probably a drop in...

    It's sound, but the aluminum floorboards, which are laid in "planks" and welded in, are full of holes. It's from age, urine, salt (WI winters are hell on vehicles), lack of washing.
