    Ooh I play this game in my head every time I drive past the billboard with the powerball jackpot counter on it. Of course I never actually buy a ticket, because my mare tells me it's much better to...

    You're very welcome!

    If you think about the movements of the legs in TOF and TOH they're just mini versions of HI and SI, either front legs or hind legs are crossing over. But doing them as a...

    I'm offering this suggestion more as a supplement to your shoulder in/haunches in work, rather than an answer to your main question which has already been answered better minds than mine.

    I would be thrilled to be paying $100, let alone $60! I'm currently getting extorted for $230 for front hart bars and a one degree wedge with a mediocre trim (seriously, for that price tag I expect...

    I have a pair of the jointed ones in 4.75," even with my size 10 feet I still have plenty of room. I agree with SolarFlare on the winter boots in theory, but I live in Phoenix so I don't actually own...

    I am admittedly late to the party on this thread, and it has gone off track from the post I'm replying to, but it stuck in my head and rankled me.

    I really like him, assuming the roaring is ok'd by a vet you trust (and assuming no other physical issues) I see a lot of potential there. In that first video he's overbent, with his head forced down...

    While I am not a "bling" person myself, having seen Silverbridge in person at regionals I have to admit he looked sharp as a tack. :yes:

    I'd recommend using a professional dye for fiber arts rather than Rit, I buy mine here. http://www.dharmatrading.com/dyes/

  11. Option to Breed Super Fancy Mare but I have ZERO Experience, Please Advise

    My kind and generous trainer has told me that I can breed her very fancy mare if I want to, and I definitely want to. I absolutely adore her, if cloning was cheaper I'd be perfectly content with a...

    I wouldn't say I'm a "diva" per se (I spent too long in foxhunter land to ever own anything with rhinestones on it :lol:) but I'm definitely a fan of the shoestring bargain hunting lifestyle.

    Taking it slow during rehab is definitely important, and a lot of what you'll be able to do depends on the horse and you'll have to take it day by day. For example at my barn we have a 25 yo...

    x2 on the offset stirrups. I've also taped little shims to my stirrup pads (when riding other horses since I have to sit in whatever tack they come with).

    In my case I have excess supination on...

    Just to clarify, are you ultimately wanting to do the jumpers or hunters? I'm asking since both involve going over fences but there are some big differences between them.

    Check with the manufacturer how the piping is colored. If they're using something like aniline dyed leather then it will probably last a long time and keep looking good. However a lot of the brighter...

    I have a similar problem, but for me it's actually caused by the stirrups (well ok my foot and ankle anatomy interacting with the stirrups). I tend to put more weight on the outside of my foot when I...

    The withers serve a very important purpose, the nuchal ligament and the neck muscles anchor/pull on the spinous processes of the withers (which are currently fractured). With that area compromised it...
