    My Clever Trick grandson (by Tricky Creek, who doesn't have a great rep for manners) was one of the most generous horses I've ever ridden, from the very first ride less than 24 hours off the track....

    it may sound crazy, but I had one who'd only crib on one post, and I stopped him by capping it with an old quart yogurt container. worked perfectly - and he was a very dedicated cribber.

    Am I just out of it that I've never seen a kineton (or similar noseband) with a chain?

    OP, you say several times that the check was "written on" the day the price was quoted, but you never say that you gave the check to the seller or that he or she accepted it. Until I know that, I'm...

    call a really good tack repair shop about the noseband. I have one too, and was directed by KL Select to someone in CT who could shorten it. Haven't gotten around to doing it yet, but it's...

    There are plenty of used ones out there at stores that allow trials. Even if it's not exactly what you'd order, you'll get a sense of how they feel and how the balance is.

    Ditto - and that comes from a person completely addicted to her Stackhouse. I have a friend who absolutely hated it. Swore it was like sitting on steel bars or something. I only bought mine after...

    Do you think this is a good idea?

    Having just read some posts about the cost of eventing, my response to this is that the cost just went up, but that aside, I do wonder where we draw the line in...

    Looks to me like organizers are damned if they do, damned if they don't: Complaints about the cost of eventing coupled with complaints about insufficient loot and services and losing events. As for...

    Asking here because no one does tack like you guys. Scored a beautiful bridle - a KL Select no longer made but new - and the figure 8 is sized for an elephant. Easy fix if it weren't raised. The...

    material aside, we used to fold them back at the front. Never worried about the end under the saddle back in the day, but sure would now. Maybe we were doing it wrong...

    Second the "go slow" approach, and if you're worried about doing too much, don't feel like you need to do it all at once. I don't pull a section til it's a short as I ultimately want it. Instead, I...

    And on top of that, FT, no one had ever take a green horse XC. Thanks for posting this. I needed it.

    Am I the only one who hates them?! Had one slip on a horse and the edge gave him a nasty rub - more akin to a cut. Ugh! No plastic for me, thanks.

    Seems like I've heard or read that many prefer the ring style because it's easier to keep intact. The ends of the figure 8 section don't slip out of the loops on the crownpiece section. I admit...

    Huh, I'm not reading anything that sounds remotely dangerous.

    Second lateral work but if you're not ready for that, the more transitions the better. Transitions between gaits, transitions within...

    How long has this been going on? I've known more than one horse who was solid and had no stop til sold and pushed too fast. They became stoppers - 1 was very dirty about it, too - and never got...

    Our local hunt does the occasional hunter trial, and there are classes for pairs (maybe pairs/ groups - it's been a while) as well as individuals, and you can run a couple of times. Lucinda Green...

    Not any help to you but curious to know the benefits of this design. Seems functionally like rings to me, though a little less adjustable because the leather is more fixed.

    Well, I'm 5'7" with long legs and bought a 16" used Stackhouse to ride in while I was waiting for my custom one to arrive, and competed in it at training (including dressage), so I guess you know how...

    Best way ever to convince me to read a blog - and I wasn't disappointed. Thanks for the laughs - and go you! (Also, will it ever after be DFP?)

    It's so rare that I disagree with BFNE, and I don't know why I care all that much about this, but I did a little surfing about CO helmet anatomy and it confirmed that the padding around your head is...
