DB's going to need a bigger facility to accomodate all these stallions! Or all the mares coming in to breed, anyway.

I won my first Novice CTR in a western barrel racing saddle LOL! But I had to give up saddle horns - yes, bruised belly is no good. I once caught the center front clasp of my bra on a horn and broke it off (front clasp bra) when jumping and that wasn't pretty - I also bruised my sternum. Going up and down hills - the thing just gets in the way. But I love a good deep seat like you find on working saddles and I love the western fenders. It's the best western/english combo I can find. You can even make the seat neon colored or any other color under the sun if you want - I love living on the wild side.

That's what mine is, Royal silver, barrel saddle. It's really comfy, but **** that's a tall horn for a fat gut like mine! But, I rode my friends saddle that has a short horn... still bruised myself. Guess I really get on up there when going up hill! lol

NATRC has been advertising so many trail rides! I want to go!!! but.... I'll really have to get in better shape... me and the horse!

The horn has got to go on my Aussie. It was one of those too good to pass up and had to to decide on the spot. Never noticed or paid attention to the horn. I may let DH have it and find one without. My son has already laid claim to daddy's saddle Aussie (no horn and too small for my hind end) but is currently using and abusing my English all purpose.

Only thing I use my horn for, is my small saddle bags that go over the horn.

Hi everyone...
Had a good morning even though the summer heat is definitely back. Pulled my colt up to groom and let him stand tied in the arena while I rode my mare. Gave him lots of sweet talk and scratches and he remained relaxed until again, when I brought him back to the pen gate. After I walked him in his head shot up and he began screaming. His new fence buddy who was out in the back pasture comes running up, calling out to him. And of course here I am again struggling with the gate that is impossible to secure with one hand. He began to push me to get out the gate but I had my stick this time and backed him up. That and a whoa quieted him long enough to get the darn gate closed. I hope he grows out of his little buddy sour stage!

TG Badger is very handsome! Looking forward to hearing more about him.

Cyn so sorry to hear about the evil pony attack on Cash. Glad he was able to get the mean one back.

Nu take care... There is always next weekend to play.

CC... IMO saddle horns are only good for roping or ponying and otherwise get in the way on the trail, like Nu says, usually when you get hit in the belly

Oh yeah, that too. I guess saddle horn injuries were easier to remember

ONA, any time he does that, BACK him up a good 50-100 feet. Any time my boys want to rush back to their paddocks, I oblige. By backing them up the entire way. About half way they're thinking, "Alright mom, I'm sorry!" but I always back them until I get to the middle of their paddock and let them stand. If they try to rush their head out of their halters(Henny was bad about that at dinner time) I'll stand there and wait until they're standing nicely before I take the halter completely off.

He is great walking back to his pen, but he doesn't like to be left there alone. Its been an issue for two days now. Dont see it as something I can correct unless he doesn't respect my space. Hopefully he will adjust, as I havent pulled him out much yet in the new place.
