  1. Yes. I mentioned that earlier. Before the "Doda"...

    Yes. I mentioned that earlier. Before the "Doda" type boots were weighted. That has been banned about 5 or 6 years ago, give or take. Then came the pinch type and now those are banned too, but only...
  2. Specifications are to limit boots "enhancing" the back end...

    I think the purpose of the specifications are due to some type of fetlock boots that were allowed a few years ago, which "enhanced" the back end by having some bulge on the inside of the boot that...
  3. OnTytes in action with Edwina Alexander's close call....found it by chance!

    I was watching Itot's farewell homage and there was an interview with Edwina Alexander on GCT TV. On 1:44 of the video, there is a slow motion of the only time she almost fell off Itot (she was...

    I just mentioned the flame suit because I read other threads about the On Tytes and there was some type of "purist" group that considered it a crutch and cheating, saying that a "real rider" never...

    I'm just getting the hang of it but if you lift the inner side of your foot first, it comes off easy. I can imagine that mounting from the ground without a leg up can be strange, though. I never did...
  6. So here we go. Flame suit on...I love On Tyte stirrups!!

    I bought a pair to try out, since many riders are raving about the system.

    I own a couple of jumpers showing in the 4'6" and over classes, one of them a 18+h mare who has a tendency to over jump...

    Sorry, you lost me. In Argentina we can only write ourselves in two classes with the same horse, be it a day show or a week long one, as long as it's two per day. I'm sure my confusion comes from not...

    Horze Winona

    I'm 5', 105lb and a 32D, which is another factor that should be taken into consideration. I bought a size 36 Horze Winona coat and it fits great: not Animo skin tight but not too boxy either....

    SEVEN???????? In Argentina, we are only allowed two per day. Seven is too much, even for cross rails or baby classes, because you have to add warmup for each, too. IMHO, waaaay too much..
  12. Had to post: buying the beginner safe horse... the ugly truth but truth alas...

    Great post on "buying the beginner safe horse". Stole it from NYCJumper's FB page (had to give her the credit for finding it).

    Priceless piece of explanation for an age old dilemma.

    Enjoy.

    Don't know about the rest, but Practicante, on his dam's side, was the best racehorse in Argentina of his time (and probably up there in all history of argentine JC).

    What if horses were people?

    This has surely been seen before, but I just ran into it so maybe there's someone else out there that needs a good chuckle!

    Yup. Ruiz Diaz.

    They do make a model called Trainer's, but I don't know when they started that model or if they are discontinued.
    Ruiz Diaz is a very good saddle manufacturer here, not Butet or CWD of course, but...
