    The New Cavalry Bridle! I still have several. First one bought in 1990, and several after that. I still use them, and they still get compliments. Best bridles I've ever used.

    I'd agree with the Signature West recommendation. They are excellent.

    Ha ha ha ha! You are so right!!!! I'm still blown away by how casual everything is, even in the fanciest barns. I'm still commenting on it to people in the barn.

    Except the horse care. That's...

    Somebody already mentioned essential oils and the Spirit Bridle. Don't forget the Spirit Yoke! And you MUST get a really obnoxious saddle fitter for the latest French saddle de jour. You know that...

    What about teaching her to drive? Most horses find it very relaxing. It's a great way to retain fitness, with very little impact.

    About 20 years ago, I had my fancy, picky, persnickety, opinionated Thoroughbred at the Evergreen Classic, a large show AA show here in the Pacific NW. My trainer was riding him in the Thoroughbred...

    I read this and laughed! Years ago, a morgan trainer I knew let one of the kids trim the legs of her horse. He was in full winter coat (read yak). Kid didn't realize that the clippers had surgical...

    Best wishes and sympathy to you as well. From one who has been through it a few times, and will again. Stay strong and know you're doing the right thing. Compassion is never a bad thing.

    As has been said before, horses are stoic. They tend to deal easily with their lot in life. But with our retired mare, we just had a situation where I don't even think she realized she was in pain,...

    I'm not a woo-woo person, and I'm pretty down to earth, and I can't believe I'm sharing this on an open forum. But, here goes.

    Nothing harder than letting them go, but I second what everybody has said. I'm a 'mine forever' type. I've had three put down over many years, and we have a 23 1/2 year old retiree right now.
