  1. Barn and Riding Wear
    I have ridden english for the entirety of my riding career, with only occasional "playdays" in western. I was offered and accepted a summer job guiding trail rides and helping with backcountry pack trips... and I wanted a pair of chinks for looks and also protection. Now as a college student I...
  2. Welcome! Introduce yourself here!
    Hi all, New member, so please bear with me! I am currently looking at a new horse. I am used to riding a 16.2 TB, and am now looking at a 14.2 Arabian. I am 5.1ft and weigh 52kg, so I sort of thought my size wouldn't be an issue, but now I look at this picture, I feel like I look too big for...
  3. New to Horses
    Hi all So I have an issue. My darling little pony somehow shook off her rope halter that she's had on for ages (do not ask me how, she's kind of a genius) but now I cannot for the life of me find a halter that fits her! We've tried pony and cob, but don't want to go down to a foal because her...
  4. Horse Breeds
    I've been taking riding lessons for about one month now. I generally ride a 25 year old Dutch Warmblood. At my last lesson, my usual horse wasn't available. So I rode a 7 year old Appendix Quarterhorse. This felt like a huge change. The neck of the horse seemed shorter, so that I had to...
  5. Miniature Horses
    Hello all, I have been looking at getting a harness for my little gal, and I have found a website that came well recommended for beginners and those not looking for anything fancy. I took all her measurements and know what size to get her, but I am wondering if I should hold off. She is three...
  6. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Yesterday, my daughter and I went to our local dover saddlery to try a larger saddle since she's outgrown her 14" all purpose charisma saddle. She's been using it for a few years now but she's grown a lot during that time. We are now going to try out a 16.5" circuit saddle on friday, (Circuit...
  7. Horse Trailers
    I'm considering upgrading my 2009 3h CM Drover GN slant trailer as it is only 6' wide and one of my mares is about 16.3hh. She is too long to fit in one stall. I measured the stall length at 88". Her blanket size is 82-84. I really like my CM trailer, but I just need something wider! I...
  8. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I typically ride in a 15" or 15.5" western saddle with a swell fork. My wife has started riding and loves my Big Horn trail saddle, so...what momma wants, momma gets. I did a lot of trying out new saddles and wound up buying a Hud Roberts Wade Tree from PFI in Springfield. I really like it for...
  9. Horse Show Clothing
    I just bought a really nice pair of breeches for a really great price, they are a size 26 but I normally take a 24. Is there anyway to make them smaller or bit more snug? I was thinking about washing them and putting them in the dryer? Or maybe take them to a seamstress to get them taken in...
  10. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I am five foot two and I weight about 95 pounds. I have breeches in 22 inch but that is still way too big. I cannot find any breeches that fit me. HELP!?!
  11. Barn Maintenance
    Hello! My family and I are considering putting in an indoor on our horse farm. I was wondering what a good size would be? I want to have a good sized indoor that could be able to do courses in (I my main love is show jumping, second equitation, so I would need enough to do a good size course...
  12. Other Pets
    I rescued this 'free' puppy about 3 weeks ago and since then shes cost me a couple bucks, even though the former owner reassured she's in good health. Anyway, the previous owner told me she's half German Shepherd and rednose pit but I'm not sure. I was wondering if anyone else has this mix...
  13. Barn Maintenance
    Hola all! My best friend and I want to have our own farm one day, and whilst trying to make a sort of barn plan I've run into a huge problem... Sizes confuse me. I'm lost when it comes down to trying to figure out sizes. Currently, we have stalls sizes at, Typical horses - 12x14 Drafts - 16x16...
  14. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I have a 15.1HH Draft cross and was sizing her for a girth to go with my saddle. If I buckle the girth in the very top billet holes on the saddle (it's a 7 billet saddle.) I would need a 36in girth. If i did it in the very bottom billets it would be 29in. So what size should I get?
  15. Horse Talk
    Hi! I'm new to this website so forgive me if I'm on the wrong forum or messed something up. :) I've been riding for roughly two years (first year was at a terrible barn and I only rode for 15 minutes a week on a tiny fat pony so it doesn't really count) and I was wondering what size of horse...

  19. Horse Trailers
    I am trying to figure out what size of horse a 7'2" trailer will comfortably fit. I found a nice used trailer this height and haven't bought a horse yet ( i am 6' and will need at least a 16hand horse)...just wasn't sure if 7'2" was to short for a larger horse?
  20. Horse Training
    I have a 6yr old gelding that is ready for Advanced/beginners training, he knows walking and trotting and some jumping, he has cantered. But we have two problems.:-( 1- He stops at the curves of our "arena" (a flat piece of land). I think the piece is a 50ftx60ft, and I think its too small for...
