    What level will you run?
    Your choices are limited if you're running Intro vs starting at BN or Novice. Fresno's January Combined Test could be a good first go for you at the lower levels. Twin will...

    So much great advice here, especially from LadyB and Hilary! Depending on where you are in Area 6, I'd suggest Woodland as a good move up. Tends toward Prelim questions at Training height with a few...

    For those of you asking about the fence - it was a large table that has been on the course for years. It's imposing to look at but rides brilliantly. It has a sloped face and a ground line. Until the...

    Dover has this pretty dressage vest, which I find intriguing. It would look polished while disguising the bumps....

    You could check out Webb in Portola Valley. I know that a number of trainers go there to give lessons and that they have a covered. It's a tough area to find anything like that - especially for...

    On a different note - I, too, have Frozen Dressage Brain followed by formerly hours of Wow I Must Suck At This. Several phone sessions with a sports psychologist who focuses on riders made a WORLD of...

    I loved the quote from @carrotsandbute at the bottom of the EN article:
    "It seems there must not be much drug testing in FEI's marketing department. Nobody came up with that sober."

    Bluemoon, I'd recommend touching base with some of the local trainers. I'm in Silicon Valley, and there are various options depending on what you want to do and where you will live. You will have to...

    I love the B Vertigo ones. The Kimberley and the Melissa ones work well. I also have a smaller waist than butt, so these work well for me.

    Dayna Lynd-Pugh and Kelly Pugh are down there. Don't think they have lesson horses, but they may have leases available. Their farm is Flying Tail Farm at Red Fox in Gilroy.

    The thing to keep in mind is that saddle fitting is as much an art as a science. Yes, there are some standard guidelines to follow, but that is just one element. There's the need to get a real feel...

    Back when I was a fitter (6 years with major brands), I had a few horses who preferred saddles that just shouldn't have worked. One I1 dressage horse liked his saddle super soft, and, what felt to...

    I too, own this horse. She is a great jumper and good mover but would let out these massive bucks after jumping, in canter departs, etc. If she was focused - i.e. on course at a show, she wouldn't do...

    Thanks Jealoushe and SomedaySoon.

    I'll check the fit again and maybe buy a smaller pair- the funny thing is these same boots stayed put all last season with no problem. Since there's no elastic,...

    My large pony goes in either the Premier's (purchased from SmartPak) or Nunn Finer American Style boots. In the Premier, she's in mediums. I like how light they are and that they stay up.
