    The big difference I learned when talking to a rep was that the fitted models are more snug and contoured along the topline, whereas the Vtek Vfree models (Marathon or Evergreen) are a little less...

    Well, I ended up ordering the Regulator again, even though I don't like the color. I agree, I'm going to see if I can get that tail flap sewn on, but I think the 3 year guarantee is worth it knowing...

    I have a horse who lives outside 24/7 in Minnesota... he and his pasture mates play hard and are fairly rough on blankets.

    He had the Schneiders VTEK Regulator 1680D blanket which made it 3 or 4...

    depends also on where you are positioned. If you are slightly ahead of the horse, then the leg farthest from the camera should be forward so the chest is visible and open. If you are slightly...

    too bad the horse didn't work out. I would absolutely buy a horse if the canter cue was the only thing you didn't like. . . that is easily re-trainable, as are many of the cues. My guy learned 3...

    my Saddlebred gelding has the same challenge. He'll stretch really nicely at the walk and trot, but I have a heck of a time getting any stretch down at the canter. He does his best quality,...

    My friend helped me do them on my Saddlebred at our last show- at training level. Totally not a faux pas! :D

    totally agree! I had to join all of that stuff to be able to compete Louie in the ASHA sport incentive program this year. USEF and USDF for me and him, local GMO, ASHA, and the local chapter MSHA....

    yes. You need both for the horse to compete in recognized dressage. And the lifetime membership for the horse looks nice if you go to sell them in the future, as it transfers right with the horse...

    sounds nice. . . but I'll never board somewhere where my horse doesn't get more than 10-12 hours turnout daily again. I had always wanted a stall for my "baby" as it made me feel that he was safe...

    my friend's horse develops bumps like that under the saddle on occasion. For her, it's either due to poor saddle fit, or dirty saddle pads. They are like pea-sized nodules, and they go away when...

    You go for it! I'm sure he would love some pampering! :) he's a bit of a ham too.

    I looked back at the pictures and we put in 8 braids. Granted, he is a Saddlebred so his neck is pretty...

    Probably about 12" for most of it. It's natural, about as long as his neck is wide or just a tad longer. These braids were actually really easy to do since you don't have to do a million of them and...

    add a little Quik Braid, braid as tightly as you can (use a small of sections as you can, as that tends to hold it tighter), and don't do it more than a few minutes before you need to get on. Fly...

    oh- one more thing I forgot to add. Your hands need to be very quiet, forgiving, with no sudden or harsh movements. I have some of my best rides when I think, "I'm not going to use my hands at all...

    I have a Saddlebred gelding, transitioning from saddle seat, and with more neck than he knows what to do with. Needless to say, in his previous life, he practically lived sucked back behind the bit,...

    Lynnwood, absolutely I think he should have been there, and am sad that he wasn't! I know my husband said the other day when I asked him to watch some of the dressage with me, "if it isn't Totilas,...

    I love Totilas, but Valegro was incredible, every bit as talented and quality as Totilas and maybe more. I look forward to seeing more from him to come! And I loved that his rider wore a helmet-...

    I would try a 34 or a 32 if the Vienna II otherwise fits her (if the panel configuration, channel width, etc seem to be ok for her. It is a great saddle and seems to be quite versatile in fit.

    Yes I would hope they could tell in other ways besides the plate, but it draws attention to the center of the saddle and provides an easy reference point for the eye. I actually heard a dressage...

    nameplates on the cantle will definitely make it more noticeable if you're not sitting perfectly square in the center of your saddle though. . .

    If it works for you- fits both horse and rider, and fits your needs, then use it!
