    While not traditional, Spanish tops are fine in the hunt field unless you are trying to win a BTO competition. Honestly, I have much more of an issue with the zippers than with the shape of the tops.

    West Mifflin = very unhorsey!

    Unfortunately, Western PA is rather a dead zone for H/J. You will have to go to South Park/Bethel Park area, or north to Barbie Bancroft/Bargee or Linda Stevens/Fox...

    Ugh, what a mess OP! That is why whenever I use Magic Cushion, I then put a thin diaper over the sole and then put Old Mac boots on the horse. Stops it from getting everywhere! ;)

    The OLD Butets were great saddles, and wore like iron. The ones made in the 2000s were notorious for causing back-pain with their banana-shaped panels. I believe that Beval updated the panel design...

    LOL, you obviously don't show in Virginia. One thing we do at shows -- either at a show-sponsored exhibitor's party or a barn party -- is drink wine after/during the show day! ;)

    As long as you have on a snaffle, pelham, or double bridle with noseband and a conventional bit, you are fine. You may use either a standing or running martingale.

    I do not know if they go out that far, but Dr. Harrison, Harrison Equine, or Dr. Casey, Casey Veterinary Services.

    I am not sure what you mean by single attachment, as a breastplate attaches 3 places (d-rings (or d-savers) and the girth, with the shoulder pieces attached over the withers. You can then add a...

    I believe the figure being thrown around for a recent purchase of a Maclay winner was $750,000. No confirmation of that, though.

    However, some people will charge/get six figures to LEASE a top...

    Canary is a gold color, which can be in slightly varying hues, but it is most definitely NOT buff! ;) Canary can be found in both vintage flared-type breeches or modern stretch breeches. The color is...

    JenEM, thank you so much! Wonderful comment, and I fully agree re the helmets and "bling-banning."

    I could not even imagine why USEF decided to spend their time on this...

    Hmmm, usually 12-14, I think. Sometimes a few less, sometimes a few more - it depends on how thick and long the mane is! ;) I usually do 30+/- braids when doing "show hunter" ones.

    We braid for Opening Meet, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Parade.

    I usually also braid the mane when I hunt aside during formal season, as it really is more correct. But for that I only do hunt or...

    I do not believe there is wi-fi at any of them, except for right near the show office (if that).

    Upperville has some outlets in/near the tents, and you will see a LOT of extension cords. ;) The...

    Going rate leasing per hunt is about $200-250/hunt, which includes hauling. Contact Eduardo or Lorena Coria, I think they will have a horse that will be suitable for him.
