I have been using my Micklem bridle for roughly 2 weeks now, and we just finished up a jumper show today. Other riders and trainers did notice the bridle and asked me about it, did it make a difference? I am still in the 'testing' phase but did admit that my TB is going much better in the Micklem. A few people did mention that they know my horse has been a bit of a head tosser before the fences and after at previous shows so they were interested in seeing us go today since several of them…Continue

Thankfully they Horse Show gods decided to move the…

I just got to ride once this week, this morning. I missed some glorious low humidity and cooler riding weather this week because Debbie had her camp. Now the heat and humidity are back. At least my ice vest helps.
As usual when I cannot ride I drowned my sorrows by reading a horse book. This time it was "Equitation Science" by Greely & McLean, a book about the science behind…Continue
