    They are more flattering than I was expecting. I live in TX and have been a riding tight junkie since irideon came out with their riding tights 10 years ago. I pretty much only wear real riding...

    I would expect to walk-on. If you have good equitation and take instruction well there's absolutely no reason you wouldn't be able to be successful at the NCAA level. Coming from an eventing...
