    Wintec Pro Jump - how old?

    When did they change the design on the Wintec Pro Jump? I'm looking for an older one, but not sure how to tell the difference from the new style.

    Have you sent wither tracings to Tucker? There are instructions on their website. They can tell you which tree (classic or gen 2) and what width will fit best. My understanding is that the...

    Hocking Hills is beautiful. It does seem like mud may be an issue during the wet season. There's enough trails for 2-3 days for the average rider. We couldn't ride all the trails while we were...

    Send wither and back tracings to Tucker. They can recommend the appropriate tree and size for your horse. I did this with my new horse, and the tree they suggested fits great. I bought a flexible...

    You can search for rides within your max driving distance from home:

    I would hesitate to do a ride that hilly as the horse's very first ride if you don't have...

    I think it depends on how well the half chaps fit your legs. I have some that fit rather loosely (they stretched out with use and no longer hug the calf contours well), and the stirrup broke. Since...

    My retired Standardbred X was lovely in dressage, and was mistaken for a Trakhener more than once.

    Recently someone asked if my two paints were Arabs or Arab crosses. Not even close. They were...

    Agreed, Tums only buffers for a very short time.
    Tums = Calcium Carbonate, which is the ingredient in many ulcer prevention supplements. It wouldn't hurt, and may help SOME, but it won't last long...
  9. heels

    I'm not a pro trimmer either, but I just wanted to add my experience to what others have said. I agree that the high contracted heels need to be fixed before treating the thrush can be successful. ...

    I'm surprised they didn't cut back the nail. If you don't cut it back, the already split nail may continue to split further up as the dog runs/plays/etc, and IMO it is more painful to leave it than...

    I did a couple CMOs when I lived in Michigan, and they were really fun. There aren't any CMOs in Kentucky, but I would definitely do it again if there were some close to me.
  12. seamless!

    I went through a lot of trial and error on what would be comfy for long fast rides... Seamless is the key. Avoid cotton. I like the knee length seamless bicycle shorts for extra long rides, and...

    Another vote for Renegades! Easy to use, doesn't rub the horse. They are a bit expensive, but they last for a long time, and are still way less expensive than shoes.

    We put down a geotextile fabric first, it looks a bit like a black tarp, which lets the water drain through but prevents the rock from mixing with the mud. Then we got a triple axle dump truck full...

    I love my Renegades and Vipers (new design from Renegade). Great fit, easy to use, no rubs, good at all gaits on all terrain. They are more tolerant of less frequent trim cycle than easyboot...

    After trying out multiple free apps simultaneously, I have found that Map My Ride has the most accurate mileage recording. Others were shorting the ride by over 10% ! Endomondo (which I previously...

    I love my SnugPax. I have the english pommel bag and one in the back too. The front pommel bag attaches to the D rings, and also has adjustable straps that attach to the billet straps under your...

    I use Bigeloil or my homemade mix, which I realize doesn't really do anything, but it smells good and I like it. :D

    Actually, I think the Renegades work best with an oval hoof, more so than an overly round one. My horse had to have the max cutback to accommodate her very round hooves. The standard sizes are...

    I transitioned my horses to barefoot last fall. I did the Durasole for a couple weeks. Not sure how important that is-- my schedule does not allow 4-5 applications a day, so I just applied it twice...

    I've been using Probios, but after recently reading the article in The Horse I'm wondering if I should switch to a product containing those types of organisms. I've never had palatability issues...

    Tea Tree Oil for thrush treatment?

    I've heard of people using Tea Tree Oil for treating mild thrush. Do you use it straight, the full 100% concentrated product, or dilute it? If it is diluted, with what?
