- Hey Bud, I recently got some pics of my old beater saddle that reminded me of your Yoemenry(sp) saddle I wonder if you have an EMail I could send the pics to, I dont know how to post pics here, and hoped maybe you could tell me something about it.
- Might have found the elusive 1920's manual, but it's not 1920's. It might first have been 1920's. It is still out of print, but apparently was reprinted as late as 1979. Same name (almost) and reads as if it might be the manual in question "U.S. Cavalry Manual of Horse Management" is the manual in question and this is "Cavalry Manual of Horse Management". Still came out of Ft. Riley and used during the time between WWI and WWII, so it might be the same. 1920 was shortly after WWI.
You can get a general look at it. Check this link and see what you think.

- I have to agree that you don't need a special saddle and that you need to free up the shoulders on a gaited horse. I have a gaited Stubben saddle that is for sale and it is extremely comfortable for both rider and horse. The only reason I am selling it is I have too many saddles. It is in mint condition. It gives the horse lots of leg contact and it perfect for trail riding. I could send you a picture by email if you would like to see it.

- I'm 35 miles the other side of Knoxville. I see this all the time. But I would not put much trust in a claim of "dead broke, kid safe, and bombproof" for $500. Maybe I'm just too skeptical. ...Liked On: 04-24-2015, 11:39 PM

Posted On: 03-21-2015, 02:46 PMFrom the video your horse is pacing like a camel. That is likely his "native" gait. That's what you have to work with. What goals do you wish to accomplish on this pacing horse? Those goals...Liked On: 03-22-2015, 10:58 PM
