    Okay so, I am also of the mind that beginners shouldn't be wearing spurs. I think spurs are a great tool, but you have to know absolutely where your leg is so you're not using them accidentally,...

    I have made several pads with my own pattern as my saddle is tricky to fit (long seat with a forward flap). I use quilt fabric for the top and flannel for the bottom. I've done several different...

    I admit, although I'm not tall (5'5"), I look and feel most balanced on a tall horse because I'm long through the ribcage. Horses under 16.2 need to be long backed or quite drafty or I feel like I...

    That shedding comb looks amazing! Even the mane comb didn't manage to make it through the fluff.

    I know minis are supposed to be easy keepers, but the two riding ponies are actually thinner than...

    That's why I'm wondering if they're crosses of some sort. The two largest were donated to the school as minis, but who knows what they are. They definitely are smart though, I dint think I've ever...
  6. New to minis, what should I know? Plus, new job!

    I was just hired to teach riding lessons at a preschool (plus summer camp with kids up to age 9) and my lesson horses are a herd of overgrown, fluffy, minis. :D They're seriously adorable! Two of...

    I would just like to address the one point on saddle fit. No, we can't just trust you that your saddle fits, especially when your horse has a medical issue that can be caused by a poorly fitting...

    Definitely the Always Infinity! Way more comfortable, super thin, and ridiculously absorbent. As an aside, when my horse had an infection in his coffin joint that kept healing, abscessing, and...

    I add another vote for Happy Horse as well. The people who work there are very pleasant and helpful. I also think they have great selection, especially in their bits and breeches.

    Drop your stirrups down long enough and cross them over the top of the saddle. It keeps the stirrups out of the way of the dividers, and they're less likely to catch on anything while...

    This isn't a situation where I'd use a twisted wire, I would never put one in the hands of a rider who isn't able to absolutely comprehend and ride with softness in their hands. I would lean towards...

    I use polyester batting and sometimes a layer of felt depending on how thick I want the pad.

    You might like the SmartPak Pipers. I found them to be cut very straight across the hip and waist and fairly generous through the thigh, they were not, however, generous through the butt. They...

    I'm similarly curvy and the pipers were terrible. The looked so cute while I was standing, but did the crotch walk as soon as I moved. The waistband was also on the loose side.

    Most of the practice bucking stock at school were the kids ranch horses on the weekend. The kids would buck them out, then pull off the tack and ride them back to the trailers or stalls bareback in...

    No advice, just sympathy, and I'm impressed you lasted this long. I had a co-worker while I was a working student who was like this, and genuinely did not understand that this behavior was...

    With the caveat that I've only ridden in my dressage boots a couple times (just got them) I noticed I was able to relax more because it kept my ankle more still and in the stirrup better. I also...

    I also like the idea of working on creating a pain scale for her. It may help her to analyze what type of pain she's feeling as well as a level and be able to handle it more calmly.

    I also wonder...

    Thanks to this thread I just ordered a pair of Pipers to try. I also just ordered a pair of Ovation DXs for super cheap (and most of them are pretty affordable on there) on horseloverz so I'll edit...

    I got my zipper at JoAnns. It was one of the really heavy duty parka ones. I had to cut the end off mine because it was a dual separating (just wrap a bunch of wraps of thread around the cut end),...
  25. Replaced the zipper on my tall boots all by myself!

    I dare any cobbler to tell me its hard to replace a zipper now. In the midst of my desparate search for new tall boots (since I'm riding english for my new job) zipper #3 blew out in my tall boots...
