    Thanks again all! He is currently out on a trial lease. Cross your fingers that the weather lets up soon so they can actually ride him!!
  2. I'm surprised by the folks who have said...

    I'm surprised by the folks who have said conformation shots of a horse are unreasonable. If the horse is 6 and doing well under saddle, great. But if it has a conformation issue that may very well...

    Uphill, he is mostly Russian bred. His dam, Dyn Amber Myst, was full Russian, a Muscat daughter. His sire, Encore Ali, was also a Muscat grandson and had some Egyptian thrown in on top, Ali Jamaal,...

    Another vote for keeping everything the same. I only change the pad and browband.

    There's enough different stuff for a horse to deal with at a show, why add something else?

    I will second Jane Savoie and Sylvia Loch, I have several of their books. Heck, I have almost every book mentioned lol.

    Another one to try is Mary Wanless. Her books have fantastic visuals and...

    Kat the Horse, he is currently in a Micklem bridle. No worries, both of my horses have one and I get asked about them all the time.

    Ivy62, thanks for the suggestion, I wasn't aware of that thread!...

    Thanks guys! He really has no idea he's "aged." Certainly has more "get up and go" than my 9 year old warmblood. Sorry it took me a couple days to get back here, my 3 year old (human) has been giving...

    Another vote for Wintec, though mine isn't even the contoured one, it's the straight one. Been using it 10+ years on several horses and see no reason to change.

    Except for my one horse that has a...

    One of my horses had always went well in a KK Ultra loose ring, as well as a cheaper version prior to my owning him.

    That is, until I put a KK Ultra full cheek on his lunging cavesson to avoid...

    Dressage/jumper Arabian gelding, 14.3, sturdy build, big movement. Was recently being ridden by a 12 year old girl and is well behaved with my 3 yr old daughter. I don’t have time to ride him and...

    I rode in Wintec's webbers for years and years. Loved them, but when I upgraded my saddles last year, I decided to upgrade my leathers too. Bought the Prestige webbers in short and love them. Been...

    I have two small horses, a 14.3 Arab and a 15.3 Oldenburg. Wouldn't trade them for the world. They happened to be freebies, and I'm so glad they were. So when I go to purchase another one day, it...

    I'm no expert, but their backs don't look that similar to me, at least from the sides. The first one has a very quick drop from his withers and ties into a back that slopes up to his croup - his back...

    When I was shopping for my other horse last year, I contacted the local rep about a fitting and she never got back to me to set one up. I just never really bothered to pursue it.

    It's something I...

    I won't go into details here, but I bought a semi-custom new BC dressage saddle, though a different model, and I would not do it again. I won't use the dealer I purchased it from again for anything...

    I have one for each of my horses.

    My Arab, who is a sensitive little bugger, seems to be more comfortable. He was never 'fussy' in the bridle, but was horrible about stopping to yank his head...

    Should I keep this Saddle?

    I'm saddle shopping for my horse that recently returned to me from a lease. He's a 14.3 Arab.

    I picked up a used 2007 County Connection on trial from a tack store that's a couple hours away. I...

    Unfortunately, I'm another who attended her lecture and then rode in a group lesson with her. Same feedback as the others, all w/t, nothing helpful, just leaning in one direction or the other letting...

    Yoga, sports massage, and (human) visits to the Chiro have done wonders for me. My left hip was behind the rest of my body. It's still a work in progress, but it's getting better as my muscle memory...

    Frankly, if I'm at a show with lots of downtime, I'm thrilled. I can't stand rushing around, throwing tack on and off my horse, pulling toilet paper off my boot as I'm trying to get on my horse...

    Thanks for all the suggestions! I kind of forgot about Albions. My instructor has one that I've ridden in once, and it was comfortable and balanced. I've heard good things about Frank Baines and L&R...

    You're right, there is nothing particularly wrong with Wintecs. I rode in various models for 10+ years. But I don't want another one.

    I do not want another Wintec because after learning more I...
  25. Looking for a saddle to fit my horse - pictures

    Yes, another saddle fit thread, but as we are always reminded, every horse is different. :D

    I've done some research, and I want to start trialing some saddles, but I'd prefer not to start...
