    Don't the buns get in the way of the helmet harness in the back? I would never be able to get my hat on if I had my hair in a bun.

    I use a RWR hairnet (love them, and they hold up so well!) and...

    I am all for microchipping. I think it's a great idea that's long overdue. What I don't grt is the linkage to DNA, because the argument for them is that they can't be easily removed/tampered with to...

    The fact that you can't do a full 8 fence course at home isn't necessarily problematic if you set things up well. I just moved up to the Adults this year, and rarely jump courses at home. We do a...

    I'm a Higher Standards convert, too, but I love the Fox's Lavender Vanilla :) I've used both the soap and the balm (which is not scented) on non-horse leathergoods as well and been impressed. At...

    I only braid/sleazy the night before if I'm leaving for the show very early the next morning. If you're not showing until the next evening, that's a LONG time to leave braids in; I'd braid the same...

    Not riding-specific, but Patagonia's Cap1 line is UPF50. They're only in crewneck, not zip, but they're very comfortable.

    These were the two I was debating between. Bonus with the Reflex is that a few places have it in a silver grey, so I could use it for some Adult Eq classes, too. I was skeptical until riding in...
  9. Composite Stirrups: "Regular" vs Wide Footbed

    I took a lesson today in a saddle with plain composite stirrups on it. I didn't think much of it, beyond Trainer joking about not believing they made a difference until trying them. But I'll be...

    Thanks, guys. I'll have to see what the Horze bats feel like in person, if they have them. I think I may have bought the green Fleck locally as well, but I can't remember if it was from a store or...

    Jump bats/whips?

    It's been forever since I bought a new one, with the exception of a Fleck whip for XC that's a bit longer than an ideal hunter jump bat would be. Plus it's green, so that's a no go for hunters :lol:...

    Yep, I work nights and have a similar timeline for visiting the barn, though I am out weekends. There are people at my barn I've never actually met, and I've been there 5 years. Maybe they think...

    Generally it averages out to about a dozen shows per year, give or take. This year I've done a bit less, since I've mostly been trying for rated/recognized stuff, in both Hunters and Dressage. ...

    HA! Yes, I use a bit of vetrolin in the rinse water, and did wring out the sponge over myself as well yesterday. It felt very good, especially driving home with the air on then!

    I wish more shows would waive coats. Yesterday here it was over 90, and was disgusting to put on a show jacket and ride. I wish there was something like the Dressage rule, where it being over a...

    It's actually the best cleaner I've found for the white padding on my dressage bridle! No discoloration at all, actually the closest to back to a clean white color.

    I can't help with the forward, as my TB needs very little help in that department, but I can tell you how I've been riding it this year :yes:

    So it's basically a sideways V in the ring, from F...

    I have trouble believing that. For a lot of reasons. Firstly because I remember stories when I was a kid (25+ years ago) about Disney trying to buy land near Sharpsburg/Antietam to build a similiar...

    Seconding this suggestion, if it fits your horse. I paid ~$800 for mine, in used but very good condition. I've got long legs and a pretty standard fit of a horse, and it works great for us; horse...

    I'll second trying these, especially if you like the look of the COs. When the time came to replace my GR8, I actually "downgraded" to one of these, because it was essentially the same styling and...

    Short answer is yes, find another instructor for you.

    Longer answer is that to me, some of these things might not be such a big deal, depending on the situation and rider/horse level. For...
