    Considering that you are mainly a pleasure rider, have you considered an Australian stock saddle? Wellspotted mentioned them and didn't like them, but you might. There are several different designs...

    There's no point using white padding on a grey horse. You won't see it as it will just blend in. I had a white padded bridle when my grey was young but once his face went white it didn't look good...

    A few weeks ago I bought some of the Keiffer Secu leathers. It's pretty hard to tell the difference between them and real leather, but they won't stretch. They are perhaps a little stiffer and won't...

    The differences (and similarities) between countries is interesting. I remember being very clearly told as a junior rider NOT to ride all the way up to C and 'go large' back to exit at A as it takes...

    What I hate:

    Having to get up very early. I'm not a morning person! I never ride in the mornings at home (and my horses snooze in the mornings) so it's not our best time of day.

    I'm in Australia (where they originated, although sadly not made here any more) and brown Wintecs are readily available.

    I've tried Isabells a couple of times and didn't like them. I love my Wintec Pro (recently superceded model.) At the moment I actually prefer it over my older, more expensive leather saddle.

    When my horse was just broken he couldn't canter a circle for about three months. In the beginning I only did walk and trot on the arena.

    He learnt to canter out on the trail (alone). Long...

    I use white, but it makes both my greys look dirty. It's not so bad on the black based grey with lots of fleabites. My pony had a palomino base coat though, and he's not a pure white grey, more of...

    The pro is nothing like an Isabelle. It's a more 'traditional' style and does not have any of the Isabelle features.

    Well I get confused when Amerians refer to stallions as "studs".

    In Australia, a stud is a horse breeding farm, and is never used to refer to a stallion.
