    Denny just posted this quote from Bill Steinkraus today ... I think it's safe to say the man is the foremost expert on the topic!

    If it's where the D-ring meets the bit, blast it with WD40. Worked great on my squeaky eggbutt.

    I've done it once, and would NOT recommend it.

    Theoretically I could just barely afford it, but why strain yourself to the edge? Ended up taking a loooong 7 months to sell horse #1, and I sold...

    My 12yo OTTB evented Novice with me and cross-rails with my husband at the same time... often even at the same SHOWS. He knew what to do. But he was a very saintly boy!

    Are we twins? LOL. I have the Pessoa Monoflap as well, love it on my big-jumping guy for security.

    I've changed the gullet several times by myself and it's not hard, easier than Wintec, I'd say....

    FWIW, me and other locals I've talked to are pretty shocked/unhappy about the doubling of the car hang-tag from $25 to $50. An increase makes sense... but doubling seems a bit much.

    I don't think...

    My horse has a similar straightness of back, my Amerigo rocked like crazy (French-type saddles seem to be built curvy).

    I got an adjustable gullet Pessoa monoflap, and he's been doing great....

    20 years old, in college, working 2 jobs, admittedly broke, living in an area where horsekeeping is way expensive?

    To me this spells "sell the horse and don't buy another (for now)."

    I promise...

    I think last time it was Dec. 1... since there are no recognized events in December, gives you some time to study before Jan. 1.

    I think EN reported he had a minor injury, unfortunately. Cool horse!

    I wonder if it's the fact that it bows out. There was an arced jump a couple years back that was kind of rainbow-shaped that a lot of horses were falling over. Since horses lose sight of what's in...

    No, I haven't had the wool flocking adjusted. Thankfully the panels are nicely overstuffed, which was exactly what I needed for the hollows behind my horse's scapulas. But I like the idea that it can...

    My horse's full brother is running in the P3D!!!! I soooo wish it would stay alive a few more years until I can (hopefully) get there... that is my lifetime goal now that CCI* is no longer...

    I have one! Thanks for the video, didn't know about Will Faudree.

    I love it... very sticky and secure. I believe it is made for a slightly straighter back shape than the curvy French-type saddles,...

    My two-horse aluminum trailer with no tack room weighs 2,500 lbs empty, so if that towing capacity is correct, it's safe to tow a small trailer...

    Judges would tell you to sit OR post (if allowed) -- whichever makes your horse go better. They won't be "impressed" by sitting and give you more points if your horse is sticking his head in the air...

    Hope this isn't hijacking, just didn't want to start a separate thread -- I took my 2nd ever helmet cam video of the Novice course on my Appy. It was a fun course! :)

    I also have the Pikeur Skarlett -- it's shorter, sporty, machine-washable, and MUCH cooler than my older wool coat. I don't think it comes with red lining, but I LOVE it!

    The fastest ulcers can develop is about 48 hours.

    My last OTTB came off the track VERY underweight, and was super lethargic, barely jog-shuffled along. As soon as he got some better food and put...

    It's not British, but I just got a Pessoa Monoflap (retails for $2k). The leather is wonderfully grippy right out of the box, it has wool flocking, so far both me and the horse love it!

    Just got one in oversize for my 16.3 App/TB. I'd purchased the "horse" size last year and the D-ring straps didn't reach, so I sold it to someone with a 15.1 Paint pony and it was too big to fit him,...

    The last two I sold went out on trials, and I think it was a good way to get them sold after months of little interest.

    Both went out with a similar signed contract; the first was paid in full and...

    Why not styrofoam? It would probably break for every horse and you'd need hundreds of backups, but it definitely can't impale a horse.

    I also like the idea of anchored, spring-loaded poles....

    I thought when it first came out (2011 Rolex?) the big selling point was that it was lightweight, something like 5 lbs? I guess you can compare that to up to 15 lbs in a regular saddle. That could be...
