    Saw an online product review along with photos of this girth on a couple different horses. It says the girth should NOT gap along the front and be tight along the back edge. If this happens, the...

    I recently got this girth for my jumping saddle. It didn't keep my saddle from creeping forward and it also fit oddly. Front edge of the girth sagged when I bent over to look between horse's legs,...

    Why do European BNRs jump with long stirrups?

    Hey all,

    As a returning adult jumper, I'm still trying to find my comfort zone stirrup length-wise. I tend to like a slightly longish stirrup, tho my trainer and old masters Michael Page, George,...

    Actually I think the glue in my IRH Elite fell off. I heard rattling around and little chunks fell out and then I noticed the vents moving around a little. I got an Uvex helmet as a replacement.

    Think of sitting on your back pockets when you piaffe so he never gets to stay in place when piaffing. Piaffe steps should move forward 1/2 hoof print for the horse who tends to get anchored in...

    I have been riding in mine and I like it. For the price, it is a good value. It took a bit to figure out which gullet I needed, etc. Everyone thinks it is a leather saddle, it is lightweight esp....

    Dumb questions about using a neck strap

    I'm returning to jumping after a loooong hiatus, but I have been riding all along. My horse isn't green/young, but is new to jumping. For those "uh-oh" moments, I've gotten a jump strap so I don't...

    I love the Compositi wide stirrups for jumping. Have no problem keeping my heel down and feel like I have a wider base of support. Like the lightweight stirrup too.

    Since I'm mainly a dressage rider and take 1 jump lesson per week, these walk/jump exercises will give us a relaxing way to do some low fences. It'll take some of the excitement down, make him wait...
