    I think we're defining "dirty" differently, because based on what you wrote after you disagreed with me, you actually mostly agree with me. The part of your post that I bolded is what I meant when I...

    You joke, but this is one of the reasons I live in the country with 5 acres and keep my horses at home instead of living in a condo and boarding, which, at this stage of my life would be so much more...

    I have one. I like it. One of the equines seems to like it. Like Outyougo said, the bit seems to be more stable than with a traditional bridle.

    But, the fitting is kind of tricky. The range of...

    It depends. Different levels of interaction require means of communication.

    I've communicated with my vet in person and via telephone, text message, e-mail, and Facebook comment. Which is most...

    OP, I'll share that in my early years of riding, I was the "token poor kid" at the stable.

    No, I wasn't really poor by any rational definition of the word - I owned a horse and had weekly riding...
