    Thanks to everyone that gave advice.

    I dress to impress myself and feel good about my presentation. It has nothing to do with others or the judge. I'm starting to see things more like Luccassb...

    After working my butt off (literally) in boot camp class all winter, I need new show clothes. I have a liver chestnut so I am seriously considering going with cream rather than white (jacket & tack...

    I'm doing a bootcamp class three times a week & the difference has been amazing. Lots of core and strength training but done quickly in circuit type fashion so great calorie burn as well.

    Hunter flat classes--need help

    I'm building up confidence after a few nasty falls. Previously, I have shown in events, show jumping, and dressage. However, this weekend my trainer wants me to do a hunter under saddle class &...

    I totally understand because I get those feelings when I jump, so I've been more comfortable with power on the flat.

    Personally, I would deal with this as 2 issues. Work on bigger gaits at home...

    I would add that I first tried to find someone to pay, and then when that failed, I did it myself. Now, I just do it myself.

    I can't even do my own hair but I taught myself how to do the big euro braids at a 3 day show. First day took about an hour, second day about 40 minutes and 3rd day was 20 minutes. They really did...

    The height doesn't matter much, meaning you can work on pace, lines, straightness, etc. at a lower height, which would mean less stress on body. I'd do the jumping show if your schooling goes okay,...

    First a caveat: 3' is my max. Never learned distances. I make sure I have a good canter & let horse figure it out. She's smarter than I am in that department. This probably doesn't work at...

    I considered the hybrid but wanted to be able to take it off for schooling if it went off (which happens to me more than I'd like, which is never).

    I also like to wear just the hit-air for jumper...

    Well, I tried to use one in dressage for a USDF show, and learned that it is not legal for those shows.

    Out of the blue, mare decided that judge was evil (or judge's box) and was DQ'd. Put...

    I think it really depends on the saddle rep. I've had great experiences with custom saddlery and I'm planning on buying a new dressage saddle from them. However, I can see how a bad rep could cause...

    I show in regular dressage, too, so it's actually my favorite but the jumping is fun and a nice change of pace. I take 2 lessons a week, one dressage and one jumping. Then I'll do one dressage...

    There's a few of us out there. I compete in jumping & eventing and I recently bought a new CWD in black. I realize the resale will be a bit lower but I love it.
