    Okay so, I am also of the mind that beginners shouldn't be wearing spurs. I think spurs are a great tool, but you have to know absolutely where your leg is so you're not using them accidentally,...

    I have made several pads with my own pattern as my saddle is tricky to fit (long seat with a forward flap). I use quilt fabric for the top and flannel for the bottom. I've done several different...

    I admit, although I'm not tall (5'5"), I look and feel most balanced on a tall horse because I'm long through the ribcage. Horses under 16.2 need to be long backed or quite drafty or I feel like I...

    That's why I'm wondering if they're crosses of some sort. The two largest were donated to the school as minis, but who knows what they are. They definitely are smart though, I dint think I've ever...

    I use ponds at night and sometimes use the Olay fresh effects bb cream during the day. They are good, and very affordable (especially if you can find then at Big Lots), but I'm still on the lookout...

    I was just hired to teach riding lessons at a preschool (plus summer camp with kids up to age 9) and my lesson horses are a herd of overgrown, fluffy, minis. :D They're seriously adorable! Two of...

    Definitely the Always Infinity! Way more comfortable, super thin, and ridiculously absorbent. As an aside, when my horse had an infection in his coffin joint that kept healing, abscessing, and...
