    Groomer's Edge are great. The motor is on a belt pack (or hung on the wall in a different model), so there's no hair blowing into your face, the clipper unit is very lightweight. I've owned mine...

    It's basically the same as using a shim-able half pad. Good for dealing with uneven shoulder, bridging, etc. But the overall shape of tree and panels still has to fit correctly. Like a half pad, the...

    The Heritage Contour leather is softer, the Spanish cut top is higher, and the brown is a deep chocolate.

    Yep. Seriously thin material. But strong and comfy (really does feel cooler than other fabrics, even the black). The printed full seat hides fanny cellulite pretty well, but they fit like a silky...

    The Collegiate Convertible Diploma is my favorite of the budget-friendly close contacts. Classic styling, well-balanced, synthetic flocking and a pretty generous wither clearance. $500 is a good...

    I leased my two horse bumper pull to a friend for a year before I sold it. I knew she could drive it competently and that her horse wouldn't tear it up. Before that, I also let friends/horses with...

    Any back can be improved *somewhat* to *a lot* by proper training, but conformation also dictates how much improvement you can expect. For this back, I'd be looking for a bridge pad (to fill in the...

    IME, Trophy Hunters offer a bit more give in the legs and waist than the Olympias, but the basic sizing is the same. 28L in one means 28L in the other.

    Tecnu is a great product to use after you've been exposed to the oils that cause the rash. Find it at Walgreens and Walmart and outdoor stores and keep it in your shower.

    Join the WNC Equestrians group on FB for some suggestions. I can't think of any show barns in the Sylva/Waynesville area (which is mostly populated with trail riders), but you may be able to find...

    The Pessoa Gen X has a flat seat and is within your budget (new).

    The problem with using only one hoof boot for riding is the balance difference from the boot to the remaining shoe. IME, if the horse can tolerate it, it's best just to ride lightly on soft footing...

    For the horse: no difference.
    For the rider: the Isabell has larger blocks and the flap is molded over the blocks, so the feeling under the leg, especially initially, is closer contact. The Isabell...
