    Haffie - no one will see them when you're in the saddle, and you'll get extra grip. For that price, I love them :)

    The Herm Sprenger one is now legal for all classes. It was originally for high performance only. I've shown my Arab at rated shows in the eggbutt WH Ultra version.

    Yes, the studs are metal and designed for ice/snow. I don't think they'll help you on rocks. The regular soles have pretty good traction though.

    I bought the Ovation a while back for my husband's horse. I was less than thrilled with it - the buckles rusted quickly.

    The County is good, and despite not much padding, doesn't seem to rub.

    I bought a weanling by Wild Dance last year from Edgar and his wife Susan. I met Wild Dance and the dam, Donna Novella, and both had excellent temperaments in addition to their athletic ability.

    Check with the show organizer. I did one at a local schooling show, and was the only entry. I think they set the jumps ~ 2' or 2'3". They were very straightforward fences - just a single rail with...

    I'm not sure if it's the same color/age, but I darkened a chestnut (? - the really reddish color) County Logic girth using warm olive oil. This was recommended in several threads, and it did make it...

    It didn't help in my case (I ended up going with a point billet), but the saddle fitter recommended trying it for my wide-shouldered, no withers Arab. She said it can sometimes equalize the pressure...

    Yes! I bought one earlier this year, and completely agree. It's also much more flattering in real life than the catalog photos make it look.

    I think Pikeur tends to fit well for larger shoulders/chest, but more of a shape than RJ Classics.

    I can wear most Pikeur models, and have wide shoulders and a relatively large chest. For me,...

    Just an FYI - the Rylie fits much different than Grand Prix's "traditional" soft shells.

    Have you looked at Pikeur? They have more than dressage soft shells, but these don't seem to be widely...

    My take on the tests is that First 1 is the most straightforward. Definitely do that one.

    I personally struggle with First 2, and have stopped entering it at shows. It just does not flow for me. ...

  19. Anyone know of an In-Stock Tucker Endurance GII 16.5" Wide Tree?

    Long story short - I placed an order back in late February for a Tucker saddle, knowing it was a two month plus lead time.

    I received my saddle last week, and they sent me one with incorrect...

    Do they have to be complete wraparounds? I have these from Oakley, and they are the best sunglasses I've ever worn. They fit nicely under a helmet, and don't slip off my nose, even when I'm...

    I bought one when they were on sale for $75 last year. The size chart was accurate, and I ended up needing to take up the sleeves an inch or so. I think it cost me $20 at the local dry cleaners. ...
