    Don't lengthen your stirrups ... That are definitely not too short. In fact, if anything I would say they are a half hole on the long side.

    Do lots of trotting and cantering in a half seat to...

    Apparently, I'm well suited to wrestling, judo, and squash ... None of which I have ever actually participated in.

    And less suited to shooting, lawn bowling and long distance athletics ... Hmm ......

    With all due respect, OP, rose colored glasses are exactly what you are viewing this horse through... That you and this horse will have a majikal, special connection straight out of a Walter Farley...
  5. Favorite gloves for wet/slippery reins?

    I'm looking for a pair of gloves that will give me a good grip on standard rubber reins, even when wet.

    I usually don't bother with gloves, but during today's jump school, little bay horsie was...

    The thing that blows my mind is, most of the people I know that are selling them and having "wrap parties" are my co-workers, and have medical training ... And should know that majikal fat melting...
  7. What's up with people advertising on their social media accounts?

    I'm not talking about actual ads that Facebook publishes, or people posting that they have a horse or car or other item for sale, but what is the deal with people posting canned Facebook statuses...

    According to the EN article, the rule was announced on June 3, so it can't even be written off as an ill-advised-and-unenforceable-but-somewhat-understandable-due-the-circumstances knee-jerk reaction...

    Not intending to speak for littleum here, but I feel that the real problem is the mindset of these individuals which drives them to commit these acts. And I feel that the notoriety they achieve by...

    Interesting to see how many more yellow cards were given in eventing than other FEI disciplines. I wonder what the reasoning is behind this ... Is it because eventing simply has more opportunities,...

    Thanks for all the updates, Doodlebug1!

    Very disappointing about Clark M but at least he was looking out for his horse's interest.

    Seeing as supplements are not actually approved to treat, cure, or prevent any particular disease or condition, their use can't accurately be described as on or off label.

    Hmmmm I don't think spandex leotards would be my first choice either! But I think polo shirts are tasteful and athletic looking, and could be flattering on people of a variety of shapes and sizes.
  15. Helmet thread spinoff - how do you think we should be dressing for competition?

    I have read quite a few comments on the 'top hats in dressage' thread in which the poster said that they didn't like the wearing of top hats not only for the obvious safety reasons, but also because...

    If a horse has had a fall with trauma to the chest, it is possible that it could have a cardiac contusion, or injury to the heart muscle, which could cause a lethal arrhythmia. I have no idea if...

    What is CleanTrax?

    I have tried the Keratex ... It might have helped harden his feet just a little bit, but they still seemed to be brittle and chip easily rather than becoming strong and pliable.

    He does get grass hay, which is all they have where I board him. I would have to buy my own alfalfa.

    He also gets a mixture of oats and SafeChoice, with some added calcium-stabilized rice bran,...
  19. Does anything actually help fix weak, shelly feet?

    Is there anything out there that really, truly improves hoof quality in a horse with weak feet?

    New schooling helmet suggestions

    I'm planning to get a new helmet in the very near future, as the one that I usually ride in for schooling is old and past its prime. It's an old Troxel Legacy Gold (do they even still make those?)

    Pretty sure this isn't something I will need to worry about any time soon, because any barn with these requirements is guaranteed to be well out of my price range. However, even if I could afford...

    I used to love A Horse Called Holiday by Frances Wilbur ... It was about a girl who ends up with a deaf OTTB former event horse from some auction. Most of the story centers around the girl but there...
