    When I used my saddle right I liked how it made my saddle fit at first, but ultimately I felt like it altered the saddle fit too much and I felt like it was kinda squished under a saddle that already...

    I would never want my saddle super shiny per say -that would be slippery- but if you mean polished looking, I also prefer that look (I hate tacky saddles personally).

    I used to be a big fan of the ovations, I would even super glue the shreds back together to make them last longer.

    At some point, I persuaded by the tack shop to buy the Grand Prix Elites. They...

    My horse doesnt poop under saddle, but sometimes she will when I am doing ground work or lunging. I would honestly rather have her stop, for no other reason than it keeps her legs and boots clean....

    I have a few bridles like that I have to clean on a daily basis. Don't underestimate a good scrubby sponge (I like the natural sea sponges, I get mine from smartpak).
    I use a glycerin bar with an...

    At the barn I work at we actually have a lot of people (like, 1 or 2 a month) come and check out our barn with no call. I think a large part of that has to do with lack of website and web presence......

    Until recently, I used a wooden tote. I liked it because it was sturdy, fit into my wooden tack trunk, and to be quite honest, had a classic look to it. :)

    However the tote was super heavy and I...

    I figured warm water in sinks was standard but quickly remembered its actually quite the luxury. especially when cleaning tack in 10 degree weather with cold water in a cold tack room. Oh well, cant...

    Have you tried putting a small trough in the stall instead of buckets? While I have never had a problem with my mare drinking out of buckets, when I take her to shows I bring a large bucket/trough...

    Ive used it several times. I dont think its taking advantage of a company to ask for an exchange when a fairly expensive saddle pad disintegrates in the wash. I realize this generous policy is why...

    I actually just buy pvc insulation tubing from Home Depot (its like, .50 cents for a large piece) and install it around the metal bars, then I just secure it with a bit of duct tape. Adds padding,...

    I got a Schneiders blanket when it came with my horse. It was used when the owner bought it for my horse, and so it was a few years old by the time it was 'mine'. That darn blanket lasted for another...

    I also have foot problems, including PF. What works well for me are my Ariat Heritages (the square toe makes a huge difference for me) and some very supportive orthotics that I have fit for me at my...

    I have heard good things about Squarespace. they look more professional to me than the wordpress sites, plus it automatically works for mobile.

    SSTack is wonderful. I got my first used from a consignment shop, and it ended up lasting 5 more heavy winters and crazy wet springs (It would still be fine, I just really wanted a new one). I...

    Thank you all for your answers so far, its making me feel a bit better about just turning her out for a vacation.
  25. Long term lease or semi-retirement, other options for leaving horse at home?

    I graduate from college in December and while I am very excited for where I am heading, it doesn't work to bring my horse with me right now (traveling/working overseas).
