    Gel update

    Tried one of the gel seat savers...it's quite heavy! And it might have worked but, sadly, it does not fit the saddle. If I put the saddle skirts in the pockets of the device, they get bent outwards....

    OK, next experiment....a seat saver with gel. Looks like one of those things they put over you during an x-ray. And weighs about as much! We shall see....

    I've body clipped twice (so far) with these. I find them easier to handle than the larger clippers, but they do clog. Also, it does take longer, since you're cutting a narrower track. So it's sort of...

    Thanks for the input! I watched my trainer school her last week, and when they jumped a couple of training questions, she was more engaged, and really rounded over the fence. Fun to watch!

    BIGGER fences?

    I've got a little horse (15.1 on a good day) who is dead honest....but shows little enthusiasm over small fences. She's competing at Novice, and doing well. But when the fences get bigger, she really...

    I want to believe that this product will help. And I'll let you know after I ride next week. But the material is so thin, that I'm initially skeptical.

    Good suggestions!

    Unfortunately, it's stenosis, so not something which can easily be "fixed." But I have ordered a Thinline seat saver, and will see if that helps. Am not eager to trade in the Albion, but am hearing...

    Where can I find a sturdy pin, but one which has a little bling? (Don't want a floral bouquet, but maybe a few pearls?)

    Saddle width?
