    @js: I guess you are right about finding something that did work for both of us. I misquoted the price though. I went back and it's $2400. On one hand, what does it matter if it fits and the price is...

    I've tried quite a few saddles recently, but haven't found anything that works for both myself and my horse. I'm really trying to avoid custom because I had two bad experiences in the past and swore...

    The type of people you are seeing as clients are the ones most likely to go by word of mouth. You will do well to do the best job you can with all your clients and let your work speak for itself.

    First time I read it, I thought it said "troll map", and I thought how wonderful!

    I like to take at least two days/week to do something different with my horse. That might be a relaxing trail ride, teaching him useful "tricks", (picking up a whip and handing it to me while...

    I think you should have yes, and then quoted him a price that people normally pay to lease a nice jumper for a weekend of showing down at Wellington.
