    What's your trick? How did you get so lucky?! I had almost the exact same experience with the exact same model....and am now sitting on a $5k (closer to $8k when you factor in the vet bills from a...

    A friend of mine with a similar build is riding in a Schleese Link II that she loves.

    I've ridden in several shows in my little Wintec. Nobody has said anything and I haven't been marked down because of it, as far as I know! If it sits you well and fits your horse, nobody cares.
  5. I would never, in a million years, touch another...

    I would never, in a million years, touch another Custom Saddlery saddle, let alone work with one of their reps or their main office in Aiken. The saddles are beautiful, but IMO not beautiful enough...

    Wow--how bizarre. I wound up finding an Aramas that had been sitting in a small tack shop for a few years that worked for what I needed. The local tack shop I was working with never did hear back...

    Schleese and Albion are the two that come to mind, however jay makes a very good point above, that a saddle that is wide but ill-fitted might sit down on the spine.

    Having taken my TB barefoot after years in shoes, and done dressage and jump work with him, seeing improved movement and comfort for him, I'm of the mindset that it is silly to shoe a horse that is...

    Feel free to PM me if you have any other questions! I'll be happy to offer more info on my experiences and share what I know :)

    What I really like about Schleese's thigh block setup is that the blocks are all velcro and screw in, so you have lots of choices. Their double flap saddles have more block options. Here is a chart...

    I have four of these LeMieux pads from the UK, and I love them! They wear like iron, look beautiful, have super high wither cutouts, and come in a zillion different colors and styles. I think my...

    Congratulations! I'm not familiar with Equipe saddles, other than that they're very pretty and Charlotte rides in them. :) A properly fitted saddle is a real hallelujah moment, for both horse and...

    *raises hand* You've just described me! I really struggled with a chair seat in every. damn. saddle. ever. It didn't matter what stirrup configuration I had, shorter, longer, forward flap, straight...

    I remember showing at the schooling shows at Camelot under the other organizer--two years ago now? And I'm 99% sure there were oxers in the 2'. It never occurred to me that it would be a problem,...

    I don't have any particular insight to offer for your specific situation, other than that nailing shoes on does NOT cause pain for a horse. The nails are going into the wall and white line of a foot...

    I've never had an issue with stretching on them. They stayed pretty true to size.

    I really like HSLC; I use it for everything! I also really like Effax Lederbalsam and the Sedgwick's product, and still have them on hand if I run out of the HSLC and am waiting for more to arrive :)

    As I've explained in other threads, my experience with "Custom" Saddlery was NOT good!

    I don't mind Pack O' Gold. Not the best, but not a bad name. He came with the barn name Packer, though, which had to go.

    His siblings were less fortunate, however. There's Gold Gold, Golden...

    I've had a few vets now tell me that they would never, ever, ever ride on GGT or similar synthetic footings after the damage they've seen to horse's joints. One said that many of the cases they're...

    I've been reading the thread on the H/J forum with interest as I have heard several stories about horses ridden regularly on GGT coming up with significant lameness issues. I've also had several...

    Beautiful site, but having trouble with the functionality. Also seems like a lot of the trainer listings disappeared? I was hoping to look at the N. CA trainer listings and there are only three when...
