    You will want to decide if you want to ride an English sidesaddle or a Western sidesaddle in choosing your saddle to start. I do think the English style is more secure in letting you "hold on"...

    Actually English Sidesaddle riders wear a form of apron over breeches these days. They do not wear skirts, though apron will appear skirt like when on their horses. True skirts are deemed dangerous...

    I would have no issue with this outfit. Just the same as most horse folks use for hauling with. Her tools and inventory in the back of truck probably make no difference at all.

    From a Truck Driver viewpoint, in our State of Michigan, these kind of rigs would be illegal last time I checked.

    For hauling a double trailer behind, the first one must be a "Recreational...

    As JB said, we will have to differ on how "well bred" is defined. In the Western Breed circles I learned in, well bred means horses of fame for various reasons in the pedigree. Some even were...

    I took your suggestion, looked up Tack Rooms and was not really impressed. There were some interesting ideas that may be useful sometime in the future. Most of what is shown is "showy" for barns...

    Must have hay waiting for them, horses moving right along. Wow, gathering the horses up with nothing between you and the North Pole wind!! Glad I don't live there.

    Is he trimmed short? Is he from lines with horses that have been retired from work with Navicular? Is he being lunged often? Are his hooves small for the body above that might be carrying a lot of...

    Sprinklers are not usable in barns up North. Water lines freeze in the cold. Few barns are heated to keep water supply lines unfrozen during winter.

    I thought they were one of the most unsafe for equines, designed things I ever saw! Way too easy for horse to get caught in the open end, sticking a head or leg thru that opening. Or trying to go...

    I am stuffed to the gills with tack. I have got several Western saddles to sell, no buyers yet. Seems they always take a bit of time to get moved on, so I am attending Tack Sales on weekends to get...

    We just use cooler squares, which cover horse from throatlatch to over tail. There are 4 ties in the front. I keep them in place with an elastic surcingle. The elastics are One-Size-Fits-All, with...

    Good point. As I said, ask the Tire fixer folks, they will know what can work with a tube, or not work on the tire in question.

    Have the fixer guys put in a tube. Tube holds air, doesn't matter if tire itself has previously had a hole in it. We do this if tire has slow leak, repairs are not doing the job. I have done this...

    Your reasons are exactly why pulling the horse out of the depression he has made, might work better than rolling him over. You can pull with a truck, tractor, if you can get them close to the horse....

    Think of your vehicle as another piece of tack. If it doesn't work for you, trade or sell it, buy another that will be better for you. What you like to drive will change as you gain experience...

    Well thanks for spelling out how he was cast. I have dealt with cast horses, stuck going uphill, back lower than feet by the ditch, one with feet thru the fence.

    OP, I would go with the lighter vehicle myself. You said pony is in the 800#+ range, so that is getting close or right at his 80% limit with your weights added. You get some slack with muscled...

    Actually for ADS competitions, there is no weight minimum. The 90kg is for FEI level competitions. I was checking the ADS Rule Book, page CD-22 shows the FEI requirements in black, with ADS...

    I think a 13H pony is going to need a smaller vehicle than a 15H one, but much depends on your "competitiveness" in doing CDE things.

    We plan to have ENTIRE load, vehicle, plus people, any...

    Our winch ran off the truck battery, wired in. It was on a steel plate, with a rubber belting piece between plate and truck bed to reduce noise when in use. You don't want to be cranking the winch,...

    I feel if horse is leaving hay in the bag, they are not THAT hungry. They would make the effort to finish hay, over being hungry.

    I would stick with using the winch. You won't need to modify the truck to carry and use the Tommy gate. You will severely reduce gas milage with a higher tailgate acting like a sail at the back of...
