    Again, y'all are too funny! I would love to go to the grasslands but my daughter made the regionals in powerlifting and the meet is this weekend!!!

    WW, I'll check my tack room, I think I have one but not sure if you would be interested. It's black and gray with wool underneath and has the notch for the withers (don't know the correct name for it). I can take a pic and send it to you.

    As for St. Patty's day, that's my brother's birthday and my daughter's boyfriend (fiance') is part Irish, last name Kelly!

    The problem I have with the neoprene is not so much that my gleding sweats alot its that sometimes we aren't in a position to stop and let him get hydrated and if you don't replace the fluids for them it can harm them.

    Sometims we go on road rides for a couple hours at a time and if I want to do anything but walk I need another pad or make my boy lug around extra water for the both of us.

    I've never used a neoprene pad, but the people I know who have used one, say they slip on them alot. When shopping for a new cinch, all they had at Atwoods was neoprene also. I just looked at that, and thought it would gall a horse, so I went elsewhere. Got a good wool one.

    Where is TBJ? I have something for her - this chick has a great 2 point while she's 6 foot in the air:



    I had a horse I rode like this all of the time in my 20's - but we jumped over creeks and logs in the woods - never over 3 foot - LOL ....but he was the safest horse I've ever owned. He is dead and buried under my asparagus beds - he was the best and I really enjoyed showing him off. But that was a long time ago when hitting the ground didn't hurt so bad - there's no way in hades I'd let my girls do this now...

    I know what you mean! There was a time, I would have done this, and did, like you, creeks, streams, downed trees. But not now! I don't bounce anymore, I break! Lolo

    ETA: thanks for saying Asparagus, I need to get some for my garden! Have to plant everything new since it's a new house for us, herbs, everything!

    Hey I will be Irish long enough to enjoy a guinness stout.
    Oh and I have been to Mardi Gras in my younger days. 10 times.
    There is no better entertainment than watching thousands of people make fools of themselves. Shalom

    I finally got my mare in the horse trailer!!! I moved the trailer over in the pasture, and backed it up to one of the tiers, so there would be no stepping up. She wouldn't lead in, she would walk up to it. So I turned her around and backed her in! Lol It worked. Did that a couple times. Then I faced her forward, put a butt rope on her, and finally got her eased in face first. Let her eat some grain, backed her out, led her around, put her in again. Still had to use the butt rope, and a shoulder in her arse, but she went in much easier!! I let her finish her grain, backed her out, and let her loose. Of course, it was dark by this time. Tomorrow, more of the same! Tried the "natural horsemanship" way, didn't phase her a bit! Hopefully tomorrow will be easier!
