    I don't event, but did use to do hunter/jumper and I adore a good TB mare for that sport. I had a couple and they were fabulous! Now that I'm a para dressage rider, I prefer morgans. I have a...
  2. Poll: Morgans!

    I voted other as I ride two morgans. They are both the old school type. Copper is built like a tank, think Justin Morgan. He doesn't have a whole lot of innate dressage ability but he has the biggest...

    Hi All, I'm trying to put together my show outfit for next year and I'd really love to buy a new saddle pad to go with my beautiful new Hastilow saddle. My bay morgan really lightens up in the summer...

    Para Dressage Coverage??

    Has anyone found a link to video coverage of the para dressage? I'm in the US, but can get video from Great Britain. I'd love to watch, but I can't seem to find it anywhere.
    Thanks!

    Back on Track back brace

    Hi, I've got a ton of back problems and can heartily recommend the back on track ceramic back brace (if the problem is with your lower back). It worked wonders for me, to the point where I was only...

    Compression Breeches

    Hi all, I've got a breeches question. I'm a para rider with some blood flow problems to my legs. Breeches with a lot of compression help keep the blood flowing and make things a lot easier on me. I...

    He's gorgeous! I'd take him home in a heartbeat. I adore mules! I always had mini mules as babysitters for the off the track thoroughbreds I was retraining. One of them would race the TB's around the...

    One other option to go with the very many fantastic suggestions you've already received, are the reactor panel saddles. I tried quite a few different options, both adjustable and not to fit my very...

    Does anyone have a reference to where peppermint oil is banned? I looked in USEF and FEI and cannot find reference to it anywhere. Of course, I'm probably looking in the wrong spot...

    My chubby, fuzzy morgan is the love of my life. He's never going to be a world beater in the dressage arena. Despite the fact that my end goal is to try out for the US Para team, and chances are...

    I had one for my VERY wide morgan and it never fit him very well. Like Fixating, my guy needs a true hoop tree and the broadback, while U-shaped isn't a true hoop. I'm 5' 8-1/2" with long legs and I...

    I also have a hard to fit morgan, but mine is an xxwide. He also HATES to have anything interfering with his shoulders and his are huge and bulgy. We started with a Thorowgood broadback cob, which...

    I wanted a 16+ (I'm 5'8-1/2") draft cross mare, 4-6 years old. Something broke, but still a bit green. It had to be a mare, as I generally don't get along that well with geldings. I ended up with a...

    My biggest goal for the year is to finally get my grading done for the para team tryouts. Looks like we'll have to drive to California to get it done, but it will be worth it.
    My next goal is to...

    I clipped a very tiny patch on my morgan's girth groove area. Its probably less than a foot square and pretty much is hidden from view, so it doesn't look too funny.:eek:

    I'm going to fourth the recommendation for the ovation. I have the cheap $40 schooling one and the $70 one. I love both of them. They are adjustable, so fit no matter how I'm wearing my long hair....

    Ooh, what a fun thread. I'm the very proud owner (or perhaps he owns me, I'm not quite sure) of a four year old morgan gelding. He too is like no other horse I've ever owned. I'm a para rider and he...

    I don't have any funny ones yet as we've only shown 4 times. But in almost all four classes, I got the comment "nicely matched pair". I don't know if they all said it for lack of anything nicer to...
