    I love the Eddie Bauer shirts that were linked. But I've found I sometimes get too hot even in the lightweight synthetic shirts. So I'll wear a short-sleeve technical shirt and a light-weight cotton...

    Also in Northern California, and I'll echo some of Quelah's thoughts: my horse lives out 24/7, free choice hay, not over-training. But I'm not that competitive, 2-4 rides a year, otherwise a good...

    I consulted with an equine nutritionist (unconnected to any feed companies) a couple years about diet for my endurance horse. It was really helpful, and simplified my life! My horse holds weight...

    I think it depends on the standard of living (both you and horse) to which you've become accustomed or want to live. I don't mind discussing costs, I don't quite know what everyone freaks out about...

    No way, in the situation you describe! Not adult horses, not on public land where you can encounter other people. My old trainer would ride her mare with foal at side, halter on, pony it to the...

    Yes, we need photos! Those Winnie's look good, but if you're up for it, you could just make a simple treat. I make one with just flax, ground flax, cinnamon, salt, applesauce and molasses (optional)....

    Similar to others, I wear my phone on my leg, just below my knee over my half chaps. I use it to track my rides, and for emergency. I don't take calls, though I might look at a text during a break. ...

    Another vote for the Arabian Saddle, Company Solstice. Secure seat, love the leg position, and the seat is super comfy! My second choice is my Freeform, also very comfy, but my butt doesn't like it...

    My favorite gift was an ornament/hanging thing with my horse's name on it. So this year I made some for everyone, and it isn't particularly Christmasy so it could be hung all year if they wanted.

    At my stable we have a couple aluminum-roofed carports, and they are tied/anchored down to t-posts. They were supposed to be temporary, but they work great and have held up for five+ years. I'm not...

    Ha, I feel for you! I have been given "the talk" this year about blanketing my horse by at least two other boarders. I'm in Sierra foothills, it has been cold to about 38 degrees overnight. My furry...

    My horse would be like SharonA's horse, and show off to everyone. We're pretty rural, but a very fancy development of million dollar homes is right up the street. They had to maintain the horse path...

    It matters just like a regular saddle, but you could use a sheepskin seat or cover to make the size a bit smaller. I'm unfamiliar with the Treadstone saddles, but I know the larger standard english...

    I've used yoga mat, you do need to replace often, but at least it is cheap (I've found them at the thrift store and just cut up a whole bunch of inserts at once). I also second (third?) the gym mats...

    "You don't feed your horse oats?"
    No, he gets lots of good hay and just some minerals, beet pulp and grass pellets.
    "But horses need oats, that is what they should all eat!"
    I give him carrots and...

    I had similar issues with my long, narrow arab who somehow has a really wide neck/shoulder area. The 72s were the right length but too tight when he lowered his head, when his head was up the blanket...

    He could be conserving as others said, but I will say that is almost the exact description of my horse after our first few endurance competitions, and he had ulcers. He wasn't off his feed, looked...

    A few endurance suppliers make nice laced reins from beta biothane. It doesn't get sticky, even over time (I have the non-laced variety more than 5 years old, our summers are over 100 too many days...

    I like Distance Depot for tack. But if you already have a bridle and breastplate you like, I'd wait, see what some other people have at the ride, get some opinions. There are halter/bridles with bit...

    Durasole can help from the outside, biotin and flax from the inside. Though if your horse has good, hard feet, their diet is probably OK.

    But I second STB that if your horse lives on soft ground,...
