    Stubben? It can be hard to find them used with the gusseted panels, which you would need for the flatter back.

    Maybe he was tired? I remember one lesson where we decided to do one last course after my horse had started to lose some steam, and he ran out at the very last fence and sent me flying. Lesson...

    I like the look, but I am an eventer :cool:. I have both mine in one. I use it on my older horse because I had it around (my retired horse preferred it) and it's easier to clean than a regular...

    It depends on the type of riding you do. My ring is the size of a small dressage arena. Do I wish it was bigger? Definitely. But my place is only ~6 acres, and we hated to take away more paddock...

    I would not add ground poles until you had been walking him for a couple of weeks at least. It sounds like the injury was pretty severe, since he only looked "pretty good" in October. As JB said,...

    My guy started developing symptoms around 8 (couldn't bend neck) but didn't get really neurologic until 11. He had a major setback where he was knuckling over in front. It took several months to...

    I would like to. I found a place nearby for $15/ride, which as cheap as I've seen around here. I will have to see if they offer a multiple horse discount, now that my young horse has learned to stand...

    For some reason, I find the socks over breeches a little bit affectatious, unless one is wearing non-zip boots. Even though 90% of equestrians seem to do this. But that, alas, is a character flaw in...

    Yeah, the only time I hit the cardio zone is during my dressage lessons! I definitely need to do more aerobic exercise. (And obviously work harder during the dressage I do on my own!)

    I just replaced my muck boots, and took a picture comparing old vs new. I was wondering why I kept slipping in the snow when I was snowblowing lol!

    According to my Fitbit, I burn about 90 calories in ~20 min cleaning and prepping stalls. Average heart rate ~110 bpm. They consider that "fat burning zone", whatever that means!

    You are lucky--I don't have much flat area to ride on when the footing is tricky. But I live on a dead end road, so at least I can hack up and down the road.

    I have been using the 1" nets (from Stateline Tack) in my easy keeper's stall overnight. He learned to eat out of it quite effectively. But recently I started worrying that the constant repetitive...

    I bought my pinto in spite of his color. Unless you have a full time groom, or can clean your horse's stall after every poop, I don't know why anyone would actually seek out a pinto. But perhaps mine...

    My horse is like this and it certainly helps me stay back and ride more aggressively. Like others have said, having my trainer there to remind me is also very helpful. I trust my horse more than she...

    I have a Bobcat UTV, which is quite a bit larger and more powerful than a typical Gator. It works well for us, although is probably a bit more machine than we need, since we have a tractor.
