    Oh, yes, my post above was definitely written in a sarcasm font. Right now we are repairing some wintertime damage to what I call "invisibles." I am in the process of repairing something you can't...

    On the plus side, nothing like a frozen water hydrant + horses that need water or a midwinter tractor breakdown to distract you from trivial problems and minor expenses that are occurring in your...

    I had a similar situation. One of the buttons that the liner attaches to popped out after two years. I contacted Smartpak (where I purchased the helmet), then in turn contacted Samshield, who told me...

    SportArab, I'm not trying to be argumentative, but there are few drugs that are exactly the same as something that occurs naturally in the human body--I don't think that is a reasonable expectation....

    I think that an initial email can be pretty basic, a quick sentence about you and your horse and what you are looking for, and then maybe a couple of questions about anything in particular that is...

    You can't take two medications that contain different compounds and say that they are interchangeable without research and proof. Different estrogens (and there are many) act in different places in...

    Beam Me Up, I've heard similar things. But really, if you ride regularly I think the 5 year rule isn't a bad idea. After a helmet has survived five years of sweat, hairspray, sunscreen and possibly...

    Here is an article that explains the situation a little better. My understanding is that Premarin is a complicated natural product. It doesn't have just one active ingredient, it contains multiple...

    When I read this article in its initial version (it appears to since have been edited) it contained a number of inaccuracies. I don't have a scientific answer for you, but the fact that the medical...

    It's a pretty jacket, but I'm going to agree with Lord Helpus, it looks more like a dressage jacket. Still, I love the stitching detail and think it is a nice jacket.

    I have worn a protective vest for years. I started out with a Charles Owen which at the time met the highest safety standards but turned out to be a bit stiff and uncomfortable. For some reason it...

    Good advice here. The only thing I would add is that with a big strided horse, use the ends of the ring to organize and plan your next "pass" in front of the judge. Possibly discreetly use the corner...

    Full seats are fine for the jumpers. No one is going to notice or care. However, I don't find full seats terribly helpful when jumping. When you are jumping your base of support comes from lower down...

    Unff, that's a good question but that's not exactly how LGDs work.

    First of all, IME, LGDs are more territorial than protective (though they are protective to some extent). They set up a...
