    I'm another Stubben fan. I have several, but my favorite is my Roxane, a fox hunting model.

    I use a side pull bridle from Running Bear. It's basically a glorified halter with rings for the bit. My horse loves it. I clip a bit to it for arena work and use it bit less for trails.

    A breeder friend actually has a cream female that's about 8mo old. She held onto both girls as show prospects and decided she likes the other one better for the show ring. She's in Indiana though.

    I love my sidepull bridle from Running Bear. I generally ride without a bit on the trail, but I use a bit when I'm doing dressage/arena work. It's constructed like a halter with a padded noseband...

    Let's talk fencing!

    I'm buying a property that already has about half the fencing up that I ultimately want. It previously had cattle, so the posts are solid wood with smooth wire, 4 or 5 strands of it. It's set up so...

    I love my Premier bridles from Schneiders. They're $40 or so and are great.

    When I had my horses at home (3 at the time), I had it set up so I didn't have to handle them at all. Open barn doors, they'd come into their stalls, while they were coming in, I'd check the trough...

    I would just get a huge load of sand and dump it in a mound. Every horse I've ever met, enjoys this. They usually make a bed of sorts out of it and enjoy rolling, sleeping and playing in it.

    Mine were VERY similar to this, but we had sliding doors. They work very well. When I build my new barn, I will be doing something similar again.

    My ex and I built 3 stalls with hay storage above them for significantly less than that. We used plywood, 2x4s, 2x6s and 4x4s for the corner posts. We used wire panels (I forget if they were...

    I really like the Composite Wide Track ones. The footbed tips very slightly to assist with putting your heels down, but they're not a jointed stirrup where you might lose stability. I do endurance...

    I usually listen to my Arab to an extent. If he balks, I'll urge him to go anyway. If he is really truly insistent about not going, there's usually a reason.

    Also, they make little non slip pads you basically glue to the bottoms of their feet. I have clients (I'm a groomer) that have used them and said they worked well.
