    Hey ya! This spring I plan to clean out and fix up the tack-room I use. It is literal trash right now, but I'm not an adult and it belongs to my grandparents so they will not agree to burning it down or rebuilding a new one. I'm posting this to ask you all what I can do to organize everything...

    I've been wanting to make a Noseband for one of my horses. Instead of spending a ton of money on one, I thought it would be fun to make my own. I have an idea in mind on what I want it to look like but no idea on how to start. Any suggestions help. Thanks in advance.
  11. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    I am considering trying some competitive trail riding, and for training season it suggests having lots of reflective gear/neon tack for riding at night or during hunting season (in the fall/winter time) Some of the prices on the tack I've found are OK, but some are just ridiculous! Maybe I'm...

  14. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    Hi all! I was coming in from riding today, thinking about those cool colored stirrups, and how expensive they are, unfortunately! But I have an insanely cheap and easy way to get around that. First, you'll need a pair of plain steel stirrups. If the stirrup pads aren't already taken out...

    Anyone out there make slow feeders to try and make their horses eat slower? My gelding is pretty good at eating slowly on his own, but the mare I have here for a friend is a bit of a vacuum when it comes to food. I did some research and while I really wanted to make some feeders out of hockey...
