    I bought the MDC stirrups to use after a bad ankle sprain. I liked the options it gave me to adjust the angle to what would feel comfortable. I think I just got the regular tread.

  2. Schockemohle sport bridles: how is leather quality these days?

    I bought a Schockemohle London bridle on one of my trips to the UK and have been very pleased with the quality. It fits my horse's slightly tapered face nicely. The leather has held up *very* well...

    OP, I feel really bad for you. You trusted the trainer, she betrayed it and now the horse is with a new owner. The most I think you could do at this point is try to contact the new owner to say you...

    I don't think it is entirely fair to say that all boarders will, with 100% probability, be a PITA at some point. that is, unless you are going to say that at some point you are going to do something...

    I was used to riding smaller horses (~15:2 or so) before I bought my current horse who is 16:1. Within the first month of owning him I sprained my ankle. It was such a stupid thing. I had momentarily...

    Yes, that is true. If there weren't a Starbucks between the barn and my house, my core would be much thinner and more stable. :lol:

    and Sinead Halpin has a pony, Forest Nymph, who is eventing at a high level. I forget whether she has done * or ** events, but I think her owner is on COTH and can comment. That little pony can jump!!

    I think that is probably true. I think the BO is in a difficult position because she realizes the helper person is providing some benefit to her personally and doesn't want to lose her. On the other...

    The horse I rode recently who is 17:2 and massive is known around the barn as "The German Schoolbus".

    I'm 5'3" and my horse is 16:1 and is well built. His size is just right for me. Although I've ridden taller and smaller horses, I like this size. Most of my family members can also ride my horse and...

    Hot to hijack the thread, what kind of threat is posed by the other teams going to the PanAm's? How is Canada looking at the moment?

    That does help thanks. My trainer has me do half halts at the canter when my horse's inside foreleg is on the ground which I thought tended to make horses go on the forehand. I've read articles where...
