    I have worn a couple pairs of TOMS -- they're lightweight to travel with and are supportive enough to walk around in each day. I'm hard on my shoes, but I usually don't get more than a few months...

    I got Minera inserted about 6 months ago. I'm late 20's, no children. My doctor gave me the choice of going to the hospital and having it done or her doing it in office (price difference = huge). I...

    I traveled quite a bit as a teen (did my first solo trip to France to work as a "mother's helper" when I was 14). My parents went the same route as GoForAGallop. My parents added me as a user to one...

    I almost never use "woman" except in a formal sense or when it's an established part of a common phrase (e.g. "grown woman"). When referring to myself I almost exclusively use girl, unless I'm trying...

    Have you tried a german martingale instead of a running martingale? I prefer it as it doesn't break the line between hand and bit.

    This will take lots of time and other more knowledgeable will...

    I was a trail guide at a stable in the Rocky Mountains for one summer. One woman who worked as a guide there was certain she knew *everything* about horses and riding.

    I picked up a pair of (lightly) used Dubarrys last fall. I wear them constantly and totally love them. However I have noticed that they're getting pretty beat up. I hose them down and then clean &...

    Your Abler should arrive within 21 days. I'm in Europe and ordered it for my mare (as gastrogard is even MORE expensive here than back in the US and requires a vet visit to prescribe -- ouch). It...

    Ooh very helpful thank you! I've only ever deep littered with straw before so attempting it with flax is a learning process. This sounds very useful!

    It's used a lot here in the Netherlands! I hated it at first. We have concrete floors and it's slippery (as was said above). A friend at the barn told me to stop treating it like shavings and to deep...

    I have seen multiple approaches used at various boarding/training barns I have stayed/worked at. When caring for my own horse(s) I have used two approaches.

    I probably look bigger in the first pictures because my mare is only 15.2, but she's proportioned like a regular horse so in photos it's quite deceptive :D

    I would *LOVE* to have an Equipe but...

    Hi All!

    Thanks for the input -- part of me is glad it's not *just* my re-rider weakness. The other part is NOT happy to start saddle searching again. Argh!

    To answer a few of the questions...

    Saddle fit for rider -- opinions please!

    I'm having concerns about my saddle. It fits my mare nicely, and she goes really well in it -- but I feel very out of position when I ride in it.

    Some of this is re-rider weakness. I need to...

    - material?
    - cut?
    - waterproof/windproof?
    - pocket style?
    - zip/button style?

    Then try to find a jacket that has those...
