    Oh please, a waterford is nothing like a chain bit. It's a fairly soft bit, they just can't lean on it. Used it on plenty of soft mouth horses who would throw a fit in a harsh bit.

    As long as it's advertised upfront, I don't see what the problem is. Most of these barns are either lesson or show barns, and expect people to ride (or be willing to ride) to their standards. If...

    Have you tried the tredsteps? IMO, they are miles better than the treadstones. The leather isn't super thick, but it's certainly not thin like a lot of the higher end boots. I'm the exact same...

    If they zip up the back, just leave the top inch unzipped. Worked fine for my dad, you can't notice it unless you're really looking for it.

    Or try the bathtub method. Set aside a whole day,...

    My dog enjoys snacking on month old skunk carcasses (after rolling in it :dead:) Fully cooked chicken that sat for a few hours in a cold car is totally fine.

    I could be wrong, but I think she was referring to human medical bills (Ie cheap horse dumps your ass because it's too much horse/too green for rider).

    My tuff riders split in 3 rides and were returned. I just got the mountain horse ice riders and they are definitely stiff, but ooh much more durable. A friend at the barn has had hers for 2 years...

    Eh, sounds like a pretty name and feel-good excuse for the breeder to breed a ton of litters without paying for the dogs or having any responsibility post-breeding age. My parents got their lab...

    You left out "That's what my barn does". My barn has hands down the best facilities and care in my area, plus a completely trustworthy honest trainer (very rare!) who is very, very good. AND the...

    Do you have him go in the crate when he WON'T be closed in? Do short training sessions of having him go in the crate, and sit at the back. Reward, then tell him to come out and repeat. Do that 5-10...

    You'll get more accurate results with a poll. People tend to be open and brag about getting 'deals', but don't readily tell people about their $$$ purchases. You also aren't asking what they're...

    FWIW I've used everything from full cheeks to a pelham on my micklem's with no problems. You could always use a spur strap (cut to size) and a braid rubber band if the straps aren't long enough.

    Rap blast works great! Fair warning, wear gloves, do it outside (up wind!), and keep the gloves and spray in a sealed plastic bag. Don't breathe while you spray, and you might want to handle his...

    The bridle doesn't ft great on large, block heads (think draft) but I've never had a problem on TB's or most warmbloods. My trainer has borrowed my small horse sized micklem for her 17h TB with a...

    Somebody ALWAYS has a cat looking for a home. If you say yes to this one, it just means you'll say no to the next. If you want this cat, take it. If not, make it very clear (white lies are fine...

    The number of wrinkles depends on the horses mouth. Don't both looking at wrinkles, look where the bit sits. It should be sitting between his teeth, so pull back his lips and look to see if it's...

    How did you get rape or victim blaming from those lyrics? The video is really creepy and gross, but the lyrics aren't even slightly rapey. It's what "YOU trying do to do to me" and "it's like WE...

    I'm guessing you've tried this, but have you adjusted the bit up and down to see where he likes it? I've got one not fussy mouthed horse who won't leave the bit alone if he thinks it's too low. He...
