    I try to clip as little as possible (I'm a minimalist). Most of mine only need to be full body clipped once or twice per winter. I rarely need to clip three times and absolutely never in the summer....

    I have one horse that is very similar. He is 11 years old but has had issues since we got him at 3years old. His symptoms include: unwillingness to move off the leg, needing 20+min of walking before...

    Completely agree. If I had to place them in an order, I'd go Palamino (assuming it moves nicely), chestnut and then pinto.

    We have seen results after a week or two. However, I will say that we switched to now only using conquer gel. We actually had better results overall and found it to be more cost effective. I would...

    We bought a 4 horse with an extended tack room. We converted it to living quarters (although we aren't quite done yet). Our amenities include full size mattress in goose neck, refrigerator, heat and...

    Thanks everyone!
  8. Do they still make Arc de Triomphe Saddles?

    Are these saddles still being made? The website seems to be in disarray with many of the links not working. I definitely fell in love with their saddles and haven't found anything *quite* the same....
  9. Its (usually) not the judge's fault...

    I have seen in many threads recently that many believe that the judges (or our particular judging system) are the ones to blame for all of the drugging that goes on at shows. It would seem that many...

    Forbidden substances are NOT necessarily therapeutic, hence why cocaine is on the list of examples of forbidden substances.

    I think what is confusing is that the umbrella diagram is taken from...

    I'm a 'r' judge and I charge $350-400 per day (depends on show) plus expenses. I will sometimes charge less for "grass roots" type shows. I think it is vital to support these types of shows or else...

    For our lessons saddles, I have bought some PdN's but currently have several older beval Natural saddles, an HDR, a Dover circuit and a Crosby Excel. I like to start the kids in the pancake saddles...

    Thanks for the input!
  14. Which is usually more fertile, open or maiden?

    After reading about several breeding programs in Europe that have their mares produce one foal at 3 or 4 years old and then compete them till they are in their teens before breeding again, it got me...

    Yes, Rider's International!

    As an owner of 12 horses, I am an experienced bargain shopper! For schooling bridles I love the smartpak Plymouth bridles. They are inexpensive, hardworking and look nice enough for small shows (or...

    Lets talk Grobs...

    We are building our derby field this year and I was think about putting in a grob as that would be a great source of dirt for use in our bank complex. My biggest concern is standing water in the...

    Agreed! You could also assume mistakes may be from a young/immature horse lacking balance or strength (another major reason why horses get heavy/strong).

    There are far more warmbloods at that level than Tb. But yes, you are correct that not many make it to 1.60m. And that is exactly why you would want to stack the deck in your favor when selecting...

    There are obviously some thoroughbred lines that could be used in modern breeding (if you so choose) but those are few and far between. That is the point. The holsteiner verband is allowing breeders...

    [QUOTE=skydy;8065236]It is interesting (and for breeders, absolutely imperative) to study horses from "decades and decades" ago. Some WB breeders spend a great deal of time doing just that. (I refer...

    Brilliant Invader has one maybe two direct offspring (F1) currently competing. Everything else is F2 or further down, which is the point in using tb blood in breeding sport horsess.

    The first was born in 1991, out of an ISH mare by a Tb born in 1968. The second (also born in 1991) was out of a tb mare also born in '68. So unless you have some tbs hanging around the breeding shed...
