Re: [RC] insulating/anything better than air mattress? - Tina Hicks

I had some 1/2" thick carpet pad leftover and laid that down

the air mattress because the mattress by itself is too cold
for me.

I see all these references to air mattresses, etc for the
gooseneck....doesn't anyone else put a real mattress in their
gooseneck?? I had two old twins in my previous gooseneck and
there's a full size mattress (came with it) in my current one.


We are talking about all the tools we can use to keep our horses safe and
alive at the rides. Training/conditioning is one of the best tools
available. It makes us better horseman and women, it benefits our horses
and could quite possibly be the key to preventing most crashes.
