    Yeah. To give support, you'd have to wrap so tight you'd probably cause injury! I've always used them just as protection from brushing, especially when riding greenies that don't quite know where...

    Well, I have a friend who due to weight and age does not ride any more. She was heavy when she bought her current horse (and rode LOTS when she was younger), and she bought an appropriate sized,...

    The suitability is there, probably for more than your modest ambitions. The retraining is going to be the hard part, though as someone says, the way he's resisting being cranked might make...

    I look back, and think of my former trainer, who stopped for a drink and heard a man talking about some barren TB mares he was going to euthanize. She asked if any were sound and he said one or two....

    If there is actual, provable negligence (on the part of BOs, other boarders), they are still liable, no matter what you sign.

    LOL. My Araloosa gelding was sired by a Trakhener approved Arabian stallion, and on an average day, while he can be hot, he's usually pretty mannerly on the ground...BUT.... He's 16.2, and currently...

    Yeah, what's funny isn't that the horse took a dump (horses do what horses do), but that the guy was there with a bucket to catch it - and then take a bow!!

    I've been exposing my horse to things at different venues for six years, and he STILL reacts. Sigh. It's just "him." At a few places - and they are comparatively "quiet" shows - he's fine. ...

    I wish they would approve it. I've soldiered on for years with a horse super-sensitive to sounds. I just lived with it, but when he was injured recently and I've been on hand-walking, and now...

    I had heard they were considering allowing sound-muffling bonnets. I wonder if that will happen. I understand they are allowed for jumpers. Why not dressage?

    Well, Hilda G.'s about that age now, and if she had the "right" horse, I have no doubt she would seriously be considered for the team. I have never had Olympic pretensions, but I'm still riding...

    Banter is generally between FRIENDS/acquaintances, not strangers. Just as I am not offended when a friend tells me an Appaloosa joke (most of which are "insulting" to the breed), but I WOULD be...

    I always figure that if there's no price listed or it says "private treaty," it means "Unless you're filthy rich, you can't afford this horse."

    Back when I was still eventing, I boarded at a place that also had a reining/cutting trainer. My event horse was a big, stout 16.3+ near-leopard Appaloosa with a "I don't take no s**t" temperament....

    There must be quite a variation in sizing. I order a LARGE "jacket". I'm your size, but only a B cup and I couldn't zip it up. Oh well - Xmas present for a smaller friend!
