    I was given an English Glove Leather SaddleRight Pad. A trail rider at my barn was going through stuff from when she was a jumper. She made a bag of all of her old stuff for me to dig through. It was mostly old bridles eaten by rats and dusty scrim sheets. After lots of digging, I found the...

    Despite riding for a good few years, I only recently got my own horse, and therefore my own saddle. The saddle is a T4 thorowgood 17” dressage saddle. It is part suede/leather look.

    I've owned my horse (Ezhno) for around four months ago. When we bought him he hadn't been in consistent work and any training he had was walk/steering oriented, since he used to be a trail horse. We've pretty much started from the ground up with him and he's been doing very well! His...

    We have a 3 year old quarter horse that's been trained on most of the basics but still needs some finishing. The previous owners were working on neck reining and he seems like a very well mannered horse for a 3 year old, although we know that he's going to be stubborn from time to time. My...

    I have recently been given some horse tack but I am having trouble figuring out what some stuff is. Can anyone tell what the plaid/criss cross thing is? As for the other picture, I believe it is a surcingle but I wanted to ask others. If it is one, what can I use it for? I don't have any driving...

    We've got a new little chestnut roan pony arriving soon. He is too young for riding and is in very bad condition at the moment! (A rescue case mentioned on the 'Horse Care' forum!)
