    Congratulations! I'm not familiar with Equipe saddles, other than that they're very pretty and Charlotte rides in them. :) A properly fitted saddle is a real hallelujah moment, for both horse and...

    *raises hand* You've just described me! I really struggled with a chair seat in every. damn. saddle. ever. It didn't matter what stirrup configuration I had, shorter, longer, forward flap, straight...

    I remember showing at the schooling shows at Camelot under the other organizer--two years ago now? And I'm 99% sure there were oxers in the 2'. It never occurred to me that it would be a problem,...

    I don't have any particular insight to offer for your specific situation, other than that nailing shoes on does NOT cause pain for a horse. The nails are going into the wall and white line of a foot...

    I really like HSLC; I use it for everything! I also really like Effax Lederbalsam and the Sedgwick's product, and still have them on hand if I run out of the HSLC and am waiting for more to arrive :)

    I don't mind Pack O' Gold. Not the best, but not a bad name. He came with the barn name Packer, though, which had to go.

    His siblings were less fortunate, however. There's Gold Gold, Golden...

    I've had a few vets now tell me that they would never, ever, ever ride on GGT or similar synthetic footings after the damage they've seen to horse's joints. One said that many of the cases they're...

    I've been reading the thread on the H/J forum with interest as I have heard several stories about horses ridden regularly on GGT coming up with significant lameness issues. I've also had several...

    Ugh, he's lovely! Just love his type...agree that his movement isn't WOW in the video, but the basic canter is pretty nice and I think will improve with fitness and focused work. Same for the trot. I...

    I bought a "custom" Icon Flight and must say I have had a hell of a time with it. $4700 for the saddle, a total refit when the saddle arrived not right, then close to $1500 in vet bills addressing...
