Here are links to various ‘stuff’ I use, that my friends use, or that I just pulled up on the internet, and it looked interesting. Eventually I’ll clean this up and put the info rather than the links here, but for now, please bear with me. These are links to MR BCHU newsletters, so scan through the newsletter to find the page with the ‘stuff’ on it. Thanks for your patience.
Remember, Horse Activities are inherently dangerous. Please read the disclaimer page of this blog, and use your own judgment about the gear and the training methods that will work safely for you and your horse. I have in most cases mentioned in the articles which of the gear I use, but that is not necessarily the best for every horse and rider. Also, I have not tested all of the gear listed, so please do your own inquiry to figure out how well that gear may work for you.

And an Italian helmet that might (?) be small enough to put under a hat.
Western Tough 1 EZ Out (Just bought these, very pleased so far. Only thing I noted is that when they do pop open in an accident, the plastic pad will pop loose, and we will be looking in the bushes for it … i need to attach it with velcro or somethign to maybe prevent this…)
My favorites for staying ON are Old Mac’s, so mostly I use those.
