    Beam Me Up- I did not get the LS (large shoulder). I actually got it the first time b/c Matt said my horse needed it although I thought he didn't. It came and it looked ridiculous on my horse. ...

    Hi ParadoxFarm-
    I have two saddles, one is a Hastilow GP and it works ok for me and my camel withered horse. The second one is a new arrival and it is a custom saddle made by Heritage in England....
  3. I also have a very long hip to knee length but a...

    I also have a very long hip to knee length but a standard calf length and I feel that the traditional advice of getting a forward flap is completely wrong for this shape. It causes a chair seat in...

    Broodmare had a pasture injury that was diagnosed as a DDF injury by one and "arthritis" by another. This was before we bred her, and we wanted her comfortable and sound prior to breeding.

    We did...

    I live in MD and I would never go to Pimlico if my horse wasn't racing there or if it wasn't a special day like Preakness or Black Eyed Susan day. The track is extremely ugly and I do worry about...

    I have a Garmin Vivoactive that I really like. But I don't think it captures my riding correctly. I just leave it in normal mode (walking) and it credits me with much more exercise than I do since...
  7. I have a narrow Hastilow GP high wither that...

    I have a narrow Hastilow GP high wither that seems very dressagy to me. I can jump just fine in it, but I can also drop my stirrups and the seat is quite deep.

    I have a dark bay and the dark...

    I love SmartPak!
    I had an issue with my SmartPaks recently and they sent me a free month to make up for it.

    Love!

    I have the CO JL9 and I find it uncomfortable under my arms. It rubs a little. I do feel like the CO offers more protection than the Tipperary, so I used to wear it when riding babies.

    My...

    I have a 17h TB that looks to be built just like yours. One thing I learned is that he does best with a tree with long points instead of short points. My horse has a huge drop from the spine to his...

    Rambo Wug
    Schneider's Vfree
    Orican high neck

    I've used all 3 with pretty good wither results. I get some shoulder rubs at the end of winter, but I think it is from my horse's shape and the fact...

    I don't care for Fat Cat. It isn't high in fat and it made one of my TBs a bit spazzy.

    I like Cool Calories. All fat and easy to feed.

    I use a higher pressure bike pump for situations like yours. It is a little bit of work, but I love having it in the trailer and knowing I don't need to plug it into anything. It can inflate my...

    As a note, I had a Heritage with this configuration for a short time. I think it would be pretty cool for a wide shouldered horse. My horse is rather narrow and it looked bizarre on him because the...
  15. If the saddle doesn't have the blocks built into...

    If the saddle doesn't have the blocks built into the top flap, it would seem that the blocks wouldn't work right.

    Heritage in England makes a saddle like this and the blocks are on top.

    The Thorowgood T4 my friend has is not very comfortable. The T8 has a much nicer feel in my opinion.
  17. Just a suggestion...watch out for too forward a...

    Just a suggestion...watch out for too forward a flap if your femur is much longer than your calf. It will often cause a chair seat, or you will have much less than a 90 degree angle in your knee. ...

    I think Change of Command is 17.3. He's huge and looks like a strong ride in the morning. He's a stakes winner and set a track record. One of my favorites to keep my eye on. Nice horse!

    He's...

    I have a T8 and I like it, I did low Level dressage I it. It looks like full leather and is pretty comfortable. I have an 18" but I feel like the seat could be larger.

    I like my position I it...

    OP are you shipping domestic or international? I just shipped my new custom saddle back to the maker in England. I used a large box from Homedepot and bubble wrap. I hope it arrives ok.

    Just a note about coats in overhead bins...someone will happily crush it with their bag as they try to jam it in. I would put it in last or keep it with you if you are carrying on.

    I've had my tack moved, trailer moved, etc. It doesn't bother me as long as nothing is damaged and my stuff is treated respectfully.
    I think it is a little weird that someone would feel otherwise...

    I went on a riding safari in South Africa in a private reserve and they ponied a mini stallion along with us for exercise. It was really cute. They had no problems at all. He politely stayed in...

    In the same boat

    I have my fingers crossed for you too! I have a giant, lazy, unraced TB. He has zero natural impulsion and I think he'd prefer to do western pleasure if you asked him. He does beautiful changes in...
