Has anyone ever used either of these halters? I need a breakaway for trailering and everyday work. For about 7 days total of the year I go backpacking and would use it for turnout during the night.

My friend uploaded a ton of photos from our trial (just found my camera will upload pictures of Candy/Casey later). Oh yes, I know my bad riding habits!

Sorry, I have no idea! And they are fun :) This was when I was trialing Candy at a horse camp. Here is a thread about it though
Distance between jumps?

Its usually 12 feet in between. Good luck!

Well. Sorry for not posting on here... I just got back from backpacking with the two horses... Well we got escapees both nights (woopee!). The first night they got out on the campground and were trotting around and I wearily got up at 4:30 to put them back and they were fine and stayed in the pen. Last night they got out at 2:30 and I put them back and they were fine. But every 30-60 minutes I would wake up because Candy was trotting around so I would check on them to make sure they were still in there. Was an exhausting and freezing night. Did catch a fish and had that as an addition to pasta though!

Oh yes. The drive back.. Theres been some huge wild fires, burning through 20,000 acres around where we were driving through, and we were one lane over from a fire burning on the side of the road. They had a helicopter with a bucket dumping water on it.. And then, we nearly crashed going around a bend in almost running into a line of cars. Just a huge line of cars just randomly stopped.. Since you can't really brake that fast with a horse trailer we had to pull jerkily into the other lane (two lane road), luckily there were no cars there. If we had just been off by a minute, we would have crashed. There also was a moter home in front of us that both of its brakes were smoking. Exciting drive back..

My favorite horse that I grew up riding at small little shows at our barn when I was starting out riding as a kid is being sold.. Again. His owner history goes like this..
At least one owner before my old instructor
Old instructor, sold because he doesnt fit in her program
Woman who got cancer and sold him
And now my friend is selling him

Its really sad.. He is not the type of horse that can deal with being passed on like that. Wouldn't be surprised if he has a mental breaks down sometime. He likes having a solid person he knows will be there, hence why he was sold off of his lesson program. He is soo sweet, he's a 14.2 POA named Charlie, fleabitten gray. So sad, poor guy.
