    Horses, I ride and take lessons in English. But if it comes up I'll ride western. I take lambs to my county fair and I am a hard working girl. :) I love horses and here are the ones I absolutely love: Eclipse,Zane,Tommy and many many more!! Tommy is my favorite and Zane was the first horse I rode:)
  1. Getting A New Saddle...

    At my barn all we have are Merlins!!! We have nine saddles that are used for all the horses. We have all different sizes. Very very very VERY good brand saddles!! Comfy and I love them. Have about thirty horses and have had the saddles for about five years now and still look and feel great! Very comfy for the horses too!!!! GO MERLINS! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!! ;) Any questions? Just ask! Have fun and be safe! NWOhio Cowgirl:)

  3. Wintec Saddles

    I agree with SmileItLooksGoodOnYou!!!! Any questions? Just ask! Have fun and be safe! NWOhio Cowgirl:)
  4. Color Coordinating

    Hey I would just stick with brown tack. Make sure all the tack is the same shade of brown. It has nothing to do with the color of your horse. I ride English and do hunter jumper type training and the judge looks at your performance and the horses performance. The judge pays no attention to the color of tack but o would recommend darker brown tack because lighter brown tack says that you haven't broke in the saddle and your not committed to the sport. For all they know someone else could ride and train ur horse and you just show. Riding takes commitment and a lot of it. ;) Any questions? Just ask! Have fun and be safe! NWOhio Cowgirl:)
  5. Tattoos And Showing

    Hey girl. Calm down. Usually you were a long sleeve shirt anyways. Best of luck with Jumping!! I'm in the middle o learning jumping and it is sooo fun!! Any questions? Just ask! Have fun and be safe! NWOhio Cowgirl:)
  6. Tack...?

    When a horse is constantly eating grain and grass in the pasture the horses teeth are constantly grinding. It could cause the horse real bad pain when the teeth become pointed and sharp. It will cause them to toss their head. Whatever you do.... Don't pull back on the reins continuously over and over again because you and the horse could become seriously injured. Especially if you are riding Western because one rider was in that situation her horse bucked up and roll back on top of her and the saddle horn tore her skin off her face from her hairline to her nose area. Then she was drug by the horse with her foot stuck in the stirrup. Luckily she survived so always be aware of your horses health!! And always wear a helmet! Any questions? Just ask!

  7. Boots?

    I love Ariats! All my boots are Ariats! Get A pair if Ariats! Thats your best bet that's cheap. But they are very good quality and I wear them while riding English! Any questions? Just ask! Have fun and be safe! NWOhio Cowgirl:)
  8. Kimberwicke's

    I recommend a Myler D Ring. Hope everything turns out okay. :) Any questions? Just ask! Have fun and be safe! NWOhio Cowgirl:)
  9. Purchased This Saddle

    I agree with paintpony1. 15" are very small for children. Depending on how old you are, how tall you are, and how much you weigh....? it might be small or just right if your a little girl..... I have no idea how much it would be worth. Sorry. :) Any questions? Just ask! Have fun and be safe! NWOhio Cowgirl:)
  10. Saddles

    Getthe one that fits you AND the horse. Make sure you are both comfortable and that should do it..... If you have horses that are older then you could use some of your other saddles when u ride her. Any questions? Just ask! Have fun and be safe! NWOhio Cowgirl:)
  11. Tekna Brand Saddles

    I don't have any experience with Tekna!! I'm soooo sorry that LassieLu and I couldn't help you!!! For trail rides I just recommend a saddle that's comfy and fits your horse well. What kind of draft cross is he? He sounds BIG!!! Haha he must be pretty just like all draft type horses!! Any questions? Just ask! Have fun and be safe! NWOhio Cowgirl:)
  12. Pessoa Gen X? Opinions

    Keep shopping!! Any questions? Just ask! Have fun and be safe! NWOhio Cowgirl:)
  13. Help Me Choose A Bit!

    Congratulations on your new horse!! You must be excited. :) Go to a tack store and ask an employee and I really don't know what else to say but I hope you have a great time showing and get a great bit for your horse!! Any questions? Just ask! Have fun and be safe! NWOhio Cowgirl:)
  14. Bit Type Question

    I don't know a WHOLE lot about bits so the best advice I can give you is don't get something harsh! And you should talk to your parents about working with a trainer and the trainer should give you some great advice and help you choose a proper bit for your horse. Good luck!! :) Any questions? Just ask! Have fun and be safe! NWOhio Cowgirl:)
  15. Showing English For The First Time

    I ride English and it us sooo fun!! You will absolutely love it. Ok anyways, all the clothing sounds right andthe girth sounds fine and everything is good. For shows you will go to some that require braiding and some don't but I recommend braiding under all circumstances. Braiding tells the judge, " I prepared for this well and I am showing you respect and I am fully committed to the care, comfort, and beauty of my horse and myself as a rider. Any questions? Just ask and I'll answer:) Have fun and be safe:) NWOhio Cowgirl:)
