    Lucy and David at Brennan's in Bridgehampton are very popular with lots of people. At one time they were County reps I think but now they have developed their own line of saddles so I don't know if...

    I agree with StormyDay, buy what fits you comfortably snug. Also I hate really tight ankles that give that flipper foot effect, so I'm not concerned about super tight ankle fit so much. After...

    I have bought appliances this way, but I already had the money, so there was no doubt I was able to pay before the 12 month period was up. But for a saddle, where fitting is involved, I am not so...

    The LLC limits the owners liability, and as I understand it, protects any assets other than those belonging to the LLC. A lot of people own their horses through LLCs.
