    6:30 - 9:30 in AM - depends on if theres a show, or if I'm tired, etc.

    They have hay virtually all the time, whether inside or outside.

    I wish I could just avoid warm up when it's a hectic one. I could do that with my pinto, but he handles warm up areas fine. Unfortunately, my Appy, doesn't handle it fine - he's the one who has been...

    Yeah, I still think you are contradicting yourself.

    I have felt one, my take was that they aren't worth the money.

    I'm sure Jay will answer more definitively… but I have two Wexfords. I would say they have a medium twist. Very very comfortable. In some saddles I fee like I am sitting on a fence rail. And/or the...

    I use count up, beeps every minute. For my last course the OT was about 6:06 or so. I knew where my 1 minute, 3 minute and 5 minute marks should be. I came in about 4 or 5 seconds under the time,...
