Stan, I'm trying to decide whether the crupper goes on the outside of your tack and leggings, or the inside wtih leggings over. I think adjusting fit would be easier if it were on the outside of your clothing. The crupper will certainly serve to define the center of your back from your shoulders down to your ....er... saddle..... thus making it very easy for those following you on the ride to praise you on your centered posture in the saddle. All in all, a great addition to your get-up. Pun intended.

Cheers!

PS - Can't imagine what Foxhunter might have to say about Stan in a crupper. Wonder where she is?

Its a strap that goes from the rear of the saddle and around and under the horses tail. When going down hill it stops the saddle going to far forward. If the horse is not used to it hang on because you are in for a ride.

One of the tricks used to get a horse into a float is to tie a rope on her saddle take it under her tale and forward to her head apply forward preasure on the rope it tightens up under her tail and forward they go. I have also used that method to get a horse that refuses to go forward to move. But be very gentle only enough preasure to get it to move. Ill post a photo of the crupper I use.

The crupper
The black is rubber covering over leather to soften around the tail.
Brand is Tucker. And the breast straps and plate are matching colour with the saddle.

I have a joke but am not sure

One needs to be married, been married, about to be, or mature enough to see the funny side, likes a good laugh at anothers misfortune.

By popular demand only

And to keep in keeping with the thread tomorrow, rain or not, Stella is getting a work out.

CW how is it all going for you.

Morning all

Anyone heard from Fox and Susan? I hope all is well with them.

Stan, i'm still looking forward to some pics of the breastplate and crupper! Does it go on back to front or front to back !?

I spoke to my trainer about Sapphira, her horse had a similar problem, he was being a total jerk with the bit, the vet who checked him yesterday told her he has mouth ulcers.....wouldn't the vet have seen them when he did her teeth? She will take a look at her on monday when she's being ridden and we will see......blech I swear i'm going to invest in bubble wrap!!

Our mini clyde had ulcers a few years ago and they were also missed when she had her teeth done - in fact I'n not sure that they aren't connected with the floating if the rasp catches the sides of the mouth and creates little sores.
We rode her in a Dr Cook for a while and still do now every time she has her teeth done as she always seems a bit off with the bit afterwards.
Could be your horse doesn't like a jointed bit or would prefer a plain thinner snaffle?
They say there are now 'bad colours' in horses. I have a plain bay that isn't spooky but she is all 'go go go' - but that's the way I like her!!!
I have bumped into Foxhunter on a few other threads - but hunting season is now underway in the UK and that makes for busy
I imagine Susan has had to hit the ground running in her new job
Stan - I'm thinking that crupper means lots of steep downhill trails!!!!
