    I'm just a hard working AA bringing along my own horses, showing here on the west coast. I've had some contact with trainers/owners at this level as I ride with a BNT and clinic with others.

    My trainer also uses the Comtek - been using it for years. What you need to do is try different earbuds.

    I have a tiny head, so I use much smaller ones than most people. You just have to try a few...

    One pretty common mistake is to go so deep into a corner that you disrupt balance and forward.

    If I'm reading this right, you were doing intro level (w/t only).

    At that level, much better to...

    Apparently I cannot read for comprehension lol - then I am probably back to having the saddle that you are searching for :)

    The thing is, it completely depends on the horse.

    My old guy - heaven help you if you gave him two days off in a week. He needed to work hard mentally and physically. Lunging made it worse - he...

    Oh sorry - just realizing you are looking for a 15" saddle. Have to say I have never seen a 15" dressage saddle. I am 5'2", 115 and ride in a 17 inch!

    I have one that I have been thinking of selling. I am in CA so that might be a bit of an issue - not sure how much it would cost to ship, etc.

    Mine is probably 5 years old. Has the blocks that are...

    Wipe down after use with a damp cloth to remove sweat. Clean with soap and condition weekly.

    Safest bet is always to just send an email asking the specific rule question and when you get an answer, print it out and keep it in your horse trailer :)

    Check with Laura Hermanson as noted above. I've seen her at quite a few shows and she does very well with the mules.

    They are lovely. I will confess to trying to stable far away from them - the...

    Anyone know what happened to cause the accident? Looked pretty bad from the news accounts. One of the horses appeared upside down.

    Really hope everyone, horses and people, escaped with minor...

    I got just piping (not the cantle, etc) - chestnut on my black saddle. I was worried but love it. Really compliments my horse and is very subtle (I am about the least blingy person around.

    Very...

    I use a similar sheepskin pad under the crank portion of my crank noseband (which I laugh at because I keep it so loose it's kind laughable that it's called a crank).

    Never occurred to me that it...

    Kind of a tough one - may I ask why she is doing tr at 10?

    For me that's the issue - is it soundness, behavior or is it that you just aren't in a regular training program?

    $5k is nothing for...

    I just spent a bit of time on the rescue's web site.

    There are a couple of other horses that would actually make better dressage prospects in terms of general body type (consider Regalo, Amee or...

    My old guy was a handful. Difficult/dramatic/naughty/spooky. I loved him to death. But it was always very difficult. I had him 22 years and it never changed. Part of the reason that I had him his...

    If your horse has 7 on gaits, it's hard to get lots of 8s.

    You can get some movements - a centerline or halt are good examples - those are all about mechanics. Kind of like a turn on the haunches...

    I went to U of M but it was many many years ago :)

    Rode with Cathy Henderson and she was amazing. But it must be 25 years ago! I boarded in a Saline and later Dexter.

    Don't put that in the sales contract!

    And don't negotiate the price pending the PPE. Agree on a price now.

    If something "material" is discovered in the PPE, the buyer can get out of the deal...

    I am on an average horse - AQHA in fact. Competing in No CA against some very fancy horses and capable AA riders. That's why the training and preparation matters so much. Because I too am on a tight...

    OP it's just that the transition between 1st and 2nd level is one of the hardest out there.

    So if you aren't able to get a 60% on 1st 3 pretty easily, you will likely get a really beating at 2nd...

    Been thinking about the flip side - the vast majority of judges are trainers, many who are active competitors.

    So pro's have an even bigger issue. Your peers are judging you quite frequently.

    Not sure I'm following - is the OP actually suggesting that a judge would underscore a horse/rider to keep that person out of the regionals?

    The irony here is that it is very easy to qualify for...

    Start in much smaller amounts. If she is good at serpentines, then make the straight portion longer in between changing directions.

    You might also try turning across the court instead of doing a...
