    I have a horse that absolutely needs to wear bell boots while in the paddock. I tried all of the usual suspects which failed with regularity. At my wits end, I broke down and bought a pair of...

    Ditto on the Childeric. I love the close contact feel the monoflap provides. My horses love it and go better in it than any of my other dressage saddles.

    I have two Lauriche (one dressage and one jumping) that Andy custom made for me a few years back. Both originally came with foam, but I had the dressage one redone with wool flocking. They are...

    I have always maintained that, if you want to improve your show jumping, go do the hunters, not the jumpers. The courses are easy to remember (outside, diagonal, outside, diagonal, or some...

    I've used them on several of my horses who couldn't be bothered to put a little effort into growing their tails. I put them in before Dressage/Trot-Up, take them out once the event is over, and have...

    I was taught that the two things you should never oil on your saddle are the stirrup leathers and the billet straps (weakens the leather). Instead I keep mine clean with high quality glycerine soap...

    Since I am of the mind that I would rather ride a fire breathing dragon in dressage than a huffing-puffing tongue hanging out pony at the end of Phase D, I err on the side of more rather than less...

    My biggest surprise was the amount of mental fatigue I experienced throughout the entire process of prepping and then competing in my first Three Day. Looking back, I guess it was to be expected...

    Ditto what Divine said about starting early. It is possible to get a passport quickly if need be (we once got one in 9 days from start to finish), but this is a costly and nerve wrecking way to go. ...

    Thankfully we are not losing Carol completely. For personal reasons, I will be stepping down from the USEF Eventing Technical Committee and Carol has been nominated to take my place. I can't think of...

    If you were to get questioned, EV114.10 EXTREME WEATHER would provide you back-up. It exactly addresses this issue.

    And we eventers just love it when "self-appointed know-it-alls" make it up as they go along in futile attempts to slam us. Vintage.

    Vanraf, there isn't a rule saying you can't go out on course with an inflated vest, at least not in the US. Maybe Celtic Cross is talking about some other country.
