    M Owen the brand of fly sheet I have is the Amigo fly rider. It is great because you can use it as a whole sheet covering neck, shoulders, and rump or just use it as a quarter sheet(front part...

    As your first horse, I would recommend that if you want to get a TB, get one that has been restarted. Just because you have leased several horses you may not be prepared for the myriad of training...
