  1. How to look good in the jumping pictures????

    I am long legged, and in show pictures, I always look like I am too far out of the saddle and forward. I only jump low now, and it seems like it is even more difficult to look nice in pictures over...

    Really really cute. Great story. More like karma than luck to get such a nice one saved from slaughter! Good for you.

    I use two spaced ground poles a lot to "calibrate" my canter. I find that if I set them at the number of strides plus about six feet, I get the canter I want without running. So if you want three...

    I would be interested in some safety information (horse and environmental) that is not from the manufacturer!

    I put up "decoy" nest boxes for the house sparrows. They are bluebird sized and mounted like bluebird boxes, but fixed so I can easily take them down and clean them out. I take them down every...

    Two of mine thought it would be great fun to tear around their muddy seven acre pasture a few weeks ago when I was trying to catch one of them. Caught the one, took him to trainers for lesson where...

    I wish the OP was getting more support. She wants to get this product off the market by making some noise. The reason it is still on the market is because we have obviously not been active enough. ...

    I actually started a thread once suggesting a "pin" or "sticky" for this product. There should be one. Agree with Laurierace. For as long as this has been going on, with painful reactions, I...

    What size needles are you using? I use 22's for everything.

    Keep riding! As long as you are happier when you get off than when you got on.

    All the more important now to not compare. I ride at a barn where it is all kids except me. They are progressing...

    Portable light weight mats for shows

    Has anyone tried the newer types of portable stall mats that are meant for horse shows?

    I want to use them for venues with asphalt floors.

    Any recommendations? Maybe these? ...

    The reason I asked is because apart from collecting eggs, maybe you could consider a fowl that was a bit more able to protect itself from predators. I live on wildlife management property and one of...

    Yes, that link is to the correct Dover half pad. You can modify just about any foam pad you want and put it in the Dover pad. I like that particular one because it is fairly thin and it will accept...

    Buy the riser. Also buy a Dover synthetic fleece half pad, the one with the velcro along the top. Remove foam from Dover pad.

    Modify riser pad by cutting out foam where shoulders are. Do this...

    Here is the zip front Champion. The zipper is not as obvious as with the Under Armor one, but hey, back clasps show too!

    Yes, you can tell it's a zip up bra. Champion also makes a nice zip up with a smaller zipper. I'll try to find you a link.

    For the newer show shirts and the thinner sun shirts, I certainly want a thick enough bra, and sports bras fit the bill even though I am not "large" at all. For me, part of the down side of sports...

    Another option, especially if you get too much curl with the pelham, is a Myler D bit with the hooks. They are also "unconventional", but at a local show, a judge is unlikely to notice or care about...

    Half seat versus full seat idea is interesting. On landing, my trainer tells me to keep my hips close to the saddle. Not sit (I ride low level hunters), but stay close. It sure helps. The saddle...

    I have issues with my whole body leaning down and in on landing! My trainer's advice works for me in the hunters -- she tells me it is all about being straight, so no matter what lead you are on,...

    A year ago I was shopping and asked an A show trainer the same question. At least $50 K in Texas. I think they are even paying that for modified (2'6") horses here.
