    Default Question -- what products would you endorse?

    I'm starting this thread to give us a place to support the horsie products (basically everything but saddles as that's a whole 'nother wall of wax) that we have, use and like. It's always useful to know what other people think are good products.

    Put the name of the product in the title.

    I'll start on next post.

    Default H.S. Bow balance stirrups

    Two thumbs up for these! In the past, I've used regular HS, MDCs and Royal Riders. These are by far the best stirrup (George Morris is shooting me daggers right now.) They are very comfortable (not sure if it's the wideness of the foot pad or what), with a perfect amount of "flex" and the weird shape seems to put the stirrups exactly under the ball of my foot the way it should. I tend to fuss a bit with other stirrups, constantly searching for the 'sweet spot.' These are worth the extra bucks IMHO.

    Default Easyboot Epics

    Incredibly good fit on my mule, Fenway Bartholomule, and easy to put on and remove. Two thumbs and four hooves up.

    Default Wintec girths

    They are the only kind I will buy. They have stainless buckles which never rust, they are cleaned easily and seem to last FOREVER. I have some that are almost 10 years old. Will never, EVER buy another leather girth.

    Default Davis poultice boot

    I have these in two sizes. They are great for not only poulticing (abscess, etc) but I can also put one on a horse with a bandaged foot. Protects the bandage enough so they can be turned out in round pen and not have to be locked in a stall. Saves me a lot of time. Also good if you have a tenderfooted horse lose a shoe, until the shoer can come.

    Default Rambo Supreme sheets/blankets

    Perfect for the always-raining temperate climate where my guy lives out 24/7 in a herd. Fits the TB well, lasts forever, stands up to vigorous play, stays waterproof (follow instructions for washing).

    cyndi --

    on the Dover site the Davis boots are available in 'medium' and 'large'. Any comment on how those sizes run, since there are more than 2 sizes of equine foot????

    Default Calm Coat

    For it's amazing hair regrowth capabilities.

    It's great for little scrapes and rubs that take off the hair!

    The Rambo blankets rock.

    My boy has had zero shoulder rubs from his Rambo. His weatherbetta gives hims rubs.

    I am replacing all his turnout blankets with Rambo's next year. He has a heavy weight rambo. I will get a light weight and medium weight rambo for him this spring for next year. His Weatherbeeta can go in the extra pile that we have at the farm.

    Default Back on Track

    I've used their products both on horses and myself. I have seen and felt marked improvement when using them and would readily endorse them to anyone.

    Default Quick Fix Halter Snap

    by Triple E Mfg

    Absolutely cheap, brilliant and quick to fix broken halters yourself (when the throat latch snap gets broken)

    At 2.50 each, Ive gone through probably a dozen of them in the last year as opposed to sending the halter in and paying $15.00 or $20.00 a halter to have them fix it for me

    Huge thumbs up for this product!

    Default Show Sheen coat polish & Endure Flyspray

    Show Sheen is absolutely brilliant for keeping manes and tails detangled and dirt from sticking the coat.

    Endure Flyspray by Farnum is even effective against the mutant monster flies we get here in the southeastern US.

    Default Cowboy Magic Detangler

    OMG, how did I have horses so long and not know what a fabulous product this is?! It's WAY better than Show Sheen (sorry PRS, I didn't mean to slam your selection, but it's actually good for their hair). I swear, it made quick work on a tail that recently came to me just like a baseball bat.
    Y'all ain't right!

    Default Eco Gold Saddle Pads

    the only pads that have worked for my assymetrical mare. They DO stay in place, as advertised, and their shimming system helps me balance out the saddle. Since she's very "one-sided," they even made a therapeutic pad that only had 'stuffing' in one side. Pricey, but worth it IMHO.

    Default Woodland!

    Dale Chavez, the only western saddle I have ever ridden in that I could stand was a Dale Chavez equitation saddle.. it was lovely. $$$$$$ which is why it does not reside w/me!

    What would I endorse? What I do already LOL

    Hmmm... I'd endorse

    Stubben saddles
    Kieffer saddles
    Schneider's blankets
    Dover's Northwind blanket line
    Smartpak brand stuff (supps, blankets, etc. LOVE the company)
    Flex-Force HA (it works, it really truly works )

    and

    EqTrainer . Her opinions are usually dead-on and she's been a HUGE help with helping me get weight on my IR horse. So, I'd gladly endorse her... if that's possible. Can you endorse a person?

    Oh, and I'd endorse EqTrainer's list too. I use stuff from all three companies (Uckele, HorseTech and Progressive). But if I'm endorsing her, I'd be endorsing them too, right?
