    Realizing you have a problem if the first step to a solution.

    I've found that posting at the canter (although annoying occasionally) is a good way to keep from lighting them up. At least - I've...

    So I almost posted this 4 pages ago but held off.

    Sometimes previous owners are crazy. And sometimes that's why there may be a problem with "saying hello."

    Not saying - of course - that it's...

    Sheepskin half pad directly on the back is actually the way it was intended to be used to get the full therapeutic effects of the sheepskin. Most of us put a baby pad underneath because dealing with...

    I find that the people who have the biggest problem with hunter hair have the worst understanding of what we actually do to accomplish it. A low pony (nicely held by the harness of modern helmets)...

    My answer is: it depends.

    Back in "the day" when I was a junior who rode a ton and did weeks at a time without stirrups? I would continue without stirrups if I thought that I could. In a first...

    Kick pads?

    My mare is usually pretty easygoing, but she has a habit of kicking her wall when she's cranky. She kicks enough that she loses a back shoe once a month or so. it's not excessive or particularly...

    You should try the original version - they come up pretty high. I could see that the lower-cut Angelfish might be problematic!

    I love my sperry's around the barn. Note that I said "around the barn." I go to the barn in them, gather all my stuff in them, and get everything arranged at the crossties in them. Then on go my...

    Not an ad, as the OP doesn't work for SmartPak as far as I know. Just a PSA - like any time anyone else shares a sale or a good deal or a great promo code that they've found!

    I have DOZENS of embroidered baby pads. DOZENS. Like, as in more than one dozen. More than two dozen, probably. Maybe 50 pads stacked in the tack closet? I've accumulated a lot of them over the 23...

    I wouldn't expect the sort of horse the OP describes to have a winning record. A good solid, move-up sort of citizen ridden by a bunch of people in a big trainer's program? I wouldn't expect that...

    Am I the only idiot who assumed that "clothes," by their very nature of being "clothing," blocked the sun?

    This is new to me.

    I think the mid rise Trophy Hunters are about the most flattering breeches that exist, especially if you're a little curvy (fluffy?). I bought three pairs in a 36 when I started back riding.

    Ride in breeches, not jeans.

    Other than that, just ride in the thing and take good care of it. Don't over condition it. Ride in it in the rain (just clean it right after). Sweat in it. USE it.

    Panning for Gold does sound quarter horsey to me. It sounds like a palomino QH.
