    Maybe I missed this, but have you tried taking your stirrups off all together? No-stirrup work tends to fix all problems in my experience.

    Part of the reason why I bought my CWD was because of the set-back stirrup bars, and I love them so so much. The only problem is that the bars themselves are super tight, so it's almost impossible to...

    Set up two to three bounces in a row and trot through them. You'll be done ducking after the first set!

    Whew. Thanks guys! Actually before mvp replied I sat rubbing it in for another good chunk of time, this time with a hairdryer though. I think because of where I am (weatherwise: it's a whopping 56º...

    Hello COTH

    Now I'll admit, I'm not usually the best when it comes to tack cleaning--which is why I took all my gear home for some major overhaul. I left my trusty bucket at the barn though, doh!...

    Ditto. My old, sensitive horse's tail got caught in it. Good thing he wasn't spooky (and he was lazy!) so we could get it untangled pretty easily, but it definitely wasn't safe. These spurs are also...

    On my little (15.1!) old jumper in the 3' classes we would leave out strides because he had the scope and the step. Whenever we walked courses we would plan them, if we didn't get a powerful enough...

    The Stubben bit is what my friend's horse uses in hunters at shows. Definitely not a bit for a leaner. As far as I know, the more the horse pulls, the more the bit locks--it's kind of like a mashup...

    I've had the privilege to ride with Jeff a lot. A ton of people in my barn used them in his clinic and he actively voiced his distaste for them. Though by the end of the clinic, he decided that we...

    I know exactly what bit you're talking about. I forget the name, but it has become quite popular out here on the west coast. The snaffle rein, when used, collapses inward and squeezes the lips. This...

    If you can't fix it with all the other advice, a quick fix my trainer used to make the eq princesses do was to put their elbows behind their backs and stick a riding crop between them. If you rolled...
