  1. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hi everyone! I'm looking for a really solid ranch/all-around type saddle. I have a Circle Y work saddle and I don't like it at all. It throws me forward, and the leather quality isn't what I wanted. I refuse to buy a saddle with plastic-y leather ever again. I want something really solid with...
  2. Farm Forum
    Hi everyone, I've been researching how to start a horse ranch and was wondering, if you are a ranch owner, how did you start and do you have any tips for me? I'm still unsure as to whether I should outright purchase a smaller established ranch or build my own. My vision is for a 50-100 acre...

  7. Saddle Fitting Issues
    Hi! Since on my continent there is no knowledge about westernsaddle fitting, I subscribed here to ask my questions. I want to start a 3 year old PaintxQuarter Gelding. He is very compact build, not a lot of withers. Already a lot of muscles on his shoulder, you can't see nor feel his scapula...
  8. Horse Breeds
    Can you use them for ranch work like roping? All I can find is info about them being used for trails. Also, how versatile are they? I know any horse can be versatile if they have decent conformation and a good mind. Would a mustang be a good all around prospect? Can you show them? Just looking...
