Thank you, she's the apple of my eye =) I was going to board at renaissance very nice clean barn, only thing I hated was half day turnout, my girl needs all day or she turns into a devil.....lol! The forestier trails are gorgeous, took her through them once so far, she's still not trail broke, will hopefully be trail broke by next year.

Hi All, I'm from Saskatchewan. 1 Appy horse, 1 Cat, 1 dog and 1 fish


Here is my list of shopping Online Canadian Stores.

Free shipping anywhere in Canada. Irvine Tack & Trailers

Shipping $10 for under $100. http://www.applesaddlery.com/c-210-p...s.aspx?many=24

Shipping? I've never ordered from here yet and don't see anything on their website. Might be calculated at checkout? Tack Depot

Shipping? I've never ordered from here yet and don't see anything on their website. Might be calculated at checkout? I have met the guy who owns this place though and he is really nice. They also have a facebook page. Western| Barrel Saddles & Tack| Hazy Tack Shack & Repair


If I order from the US

I do order from Horse.com Shipping is $32 + .75 per pound but they do cover all duties and custom fees. I like to order from here if I have a big order as their prices are super cheap. I've ordered pads and full bridle sets from there and never had any issues.

Hello all, time I posted on here too.

And thank you MiniMom for those online stores. That's the kind of information I like to have.

I have been sorting out my winter riding gear as this winter I have two rideable horses, and no broken limbs (last winter I had a broken arm thanks to one of the horses ....). I have just completed my outfit by purchasing some Ariat winter boots (see my other thread on winter boots if you're going boot shopping ) and feel like I am genuinely sorted for the season.

I have also now got two local riding buddies so plenty of opportunities to get out there. By combining our local contacts we are growing our off road riding opportunities very fast.

Here's a pic from last week

Looks like beautiful riding there! Do you encounter any quads or snowmobiles and how do your horses react to it?

I'm a little worried about winter trail riding here because we had more families move onto our country road and many of them go quadding or snowmobiling where I like to ride. When they go by my fenceline, my horses gallop and snort and buck. I wouldn't want them to do that while trail riding!

That's such an intrusion, isn't it Red Gate (I know, it's happened in my area too - nice and quiet to a little mini quad park)? If you are any sort of terms with them, perhaps you can make lemonade out of lemons by enlisting their aid in desensitizing your horses to the machines.

Welcome MiniMom and thanks for the shopping links.

Well, at least WE can ride in the snow, as winter rains are miserable to ride in. Beautiful pic RedGateFarm. Hopefully, tomorrow I can take a similar picture from between my mare's ears: we just got 1 foot of snow today.

It's good to desensitize horses to ATV and snowmobiles, it's unavoidable to meet them on trails at some point. Problem with snowmobiles is they don't compact the snow enough and the half-packed trails become dangerous for the horses legs. So my plan is to ride the trails BEFORE the snowmobiles!
