    I also wonder if they can help position my toes to be more forward/inward? I rode in some jointed ones before and they made my ankles sore, so I'm leary.

    I have the same problem as #1 especially on my Hano mare! I would be interested in how to bring awareness to link those areas together, as I have no idea I am doing it. My trainer assures me that I...

    I also have a 17 year old, and just showed him in the I1 this weekend for the first time. My guy is good but I only train 4 days a week, and usually never do more than 2 days in a row. I try to ride...

    So does that mean I can't show in reins that are rubber?

    Yes DQ! I tried these yesterday and loved them. I had them on my jumping bridle which is brown, but thought I could order them on black. According to Charlotte Dujardin, "short reins wins gold...

    I switched from a 5-6 day program to a 4 day a week program, and made the biggest leaps in my training. My horses are happier, not body sore, healthy and ready to go. They are worked fairly hard, but...

    No, I'm looking for a bradoon rein that isn't too thick without hand stops. I have a great curb rein. Not small like a weymouth rein. I would like to go back to a rubber or some type of grippy...
  15. Best Reins for small hands for bradoon on double bridle

    I love the thinness of my leather reins, but the stops are not close enough together. Anyone have a thin grippy suggestion? It was recommended that I take my leather reins to a shoe repair place and...

    Yes you can. I don't think the actual minutes in the saddle count as much as the quality of the work you do while in the saddle! This was a big ahh ha for me when switching from eventing to dressage.

    I don't think fitness necessarily goes with riding so many times during the week. I ride my horses 4 days a week and they are plenty fit to do the job. I agree with J-Lu and Beenthere. Second level...
