    I ride a large pony with a build that's built like a horse, not a pony...decent withers and a typical (not round) ribcage. I ride in a Smith Worthington all purpose saddle. It's not as cushy as my...

    If you're really ready to make your own saddle, contact Smith Worthington. They make beautiful saddles and can work with you so you get exactly what you want. I have a SW AP and their dressage...

    You can also continue to search on eBay, you'd be surprised what shows up there. Have you tried a much-easier-to find Waterford to see if it works?

    Stryder, that looks like an awesome saddle fitting tool!

    Have you tried a saddle with a more U- shaped (hoop) tree like a Duett?

    And when all else fails, if the saddle seems to otherwise fit,...

    Try to find a good price on a pickup that can easily haul the trailer and spend the extra money on a babysitter with a station wagon to follow you :)

    I would vote with those who recommend a truck rather than a large SUV. OP, you have to ask yourself: how much hauling will I do? Will it be short distances on relatively flat roads or will you haul...

    OP, I'm glad you found a routine that works. I have two dogs and I exercise them in the morning before work. My barn time is after work. It is hard to balance the needs of all of your animals when...

    Stubben Siegfried. I rode for years at a lesson barn that was almost all ponies, and they used the Siegfried almost exclusively because it fit them so well. The Juventus is a youth saddle so the...

    Is there an EMS or REI store near you? I've gotten some great buys on sale at those stores, but you generally have to go to a brick & mortar store and look through the sale racks, they don't show up...

    My husband bought me one of these for hunting:

    It ties up beautifully and (hand) washes easily.

    I had a terrible very itchy rash once...

    When searching eBay for comparative offerings try searching flat hunt bridles, you'll see more. In decent condition with reins I would say you could ask around $150. Of course if you price it lower...

    I have been at a barn where a known problem boarder arrived. **I** knew for certain that New Boarder was a problem and gave the barn owners a heads up and they ignored me. Sadly, I was right. Hay...

    I've kept up with riding the fuzzy pony bareback. At a walk. In the deep snow. And I managed to stay on when the poor pony's feet finally broke through to the ground, pitching her forward onto her...

    Only hugs from here. You did the hardest thing, the right thing and relieved him of a life of pain.

    I concur that if you've done most of your riding in the ring you'll want to spend some time out of there before hunting. Riding up and down hills and through or over obstacles is a different set of...

    You've already taken the most important first step, which is contacting the hunt nearest you. Each hunt is different. Some hunts have many members, and may have a well established process for...

    My pony is at a co-op barn and there is no one on site (that will change in a few months, but now, no one). We put the horses in on Monday night with extra hay bags and extra water buckets, knowing...

    Collegialequestrian sums it up well. I've only hired from Hunter's Rest, but I would guess that most who hire out their horses would prefer that you ride in their tack to ensure that the saddle fits...

    I agree that a sturdier leather is best for hunting to hold up to the bumps & scratches you'll encounter there. And what are often sold as dress boots are really meant for the dressage ring, so they...

    At a hunter pace this fall there was a youngster of about 7-8 being ponied by mom. The pony still managed to dump the kid & run off down the trail where my partner & I with the pair behind us...

    I had a portable compressor. It died after inflating one tire. I do think I'll replace it because it's a good thing to have in the trailer. We ended up buying a compressor to have at the barn, as...
