    Had a fitter tell me the exact same thing. I was riding in a County dressage saddle and an Albion jumping saddle. Saddle fitter said they were too "banana", and I needed to find something flat. ...

    Not to derail the topic, but I agree with this 100%. Horses that aren't gonna go above training would be better served by learning changes. The scenario I laid out above of jumping from counter...

    Event rider here, my opinion, changes or lack of changes are a non-issue. Is his canter nice? Is he balanced? That is what I would evaluate. I grew up riding in a 45-55 horse eventing barn. I'm...

    A horse I cared for a couple years ago got one toward the end of the season, maybe 2 months of use in a rotation. He was turned out just a couple hours a day and individual turnout. For those...

    Horse lives out 24/7, but works in a heater indoor? Ouch, that's a tough one! I can only imagine the amount of sweating.

    First, is there an unheated indoor you could ride in? Seriously, that...

    I'm assuming you are looking for a WS position in an eventing barn??? But your self description of "turned hunter/jumper", I just want to check you're not looking for a hunter/jumper facility?

    I almost forgot the next part. At one point he'd been in consistent work for months and months, was going really nicely. People would come to the barn and watch us ride before they got their horse,...

    Yes, agree! I don't like to admit to this because in most conversations it's not understood. But ride after ride I would dismount and my horse had welts from the whip. He was so adverse to going...

    Wow, your horse sounds so much like a gelding I use to own! Easy keeper who survived on grass and a little supplementation. Also, very sweet, friendly, laid back mellow guy. He seemed like the...

    Just a thought, I may be WAY off base so please don't take my thinking out loud as fact or hearsay.

    I wonder if they gave him an exorbitantly high stud fee to purposely limit his bookings? Maybe...

    White or cream with a subtle pattern in the peacock or navy color would be beautiful. I think a sea foam green solid, pattern, or strip would look nice. Grey tones would probably look good too; a...

    If you didn't have bushes and kept going you won't get straighter, you'll only close the angle of truck and trailer more and result in a jackknife.

    And yes! As soon as you have to try catching up...

    Hmm, this is much harder to describe with text then in person with a rig... I'll try to describe a way to think about backing that might help. Your steering wheel affects the angle of your front...

    I'll echo everyone: practice, practice, practice! Having the skill to back through just about any driveway or road, alone, in the dark, with only your mirrors? It's a HUGE peace of mind.

    I love to watch the Elite Auction horses jump and laugh at how I would probably get jumped out of the tack over a 2 ft fence with these horses! :lol:

    Wow, this thread has given me a whole new perspective and appreciation for the 4-H program (county and state) where I grew up. I did 4-H for 7 years and it was a safe and tightly run program.

    I agree with BlueMoonCowgirl. I'm not in love with the song and styling, but that's just my preference.

    Both horses look like they're in loose ring snaffles. No huge shank or port which would...
