    Honestly, I have to say I'm not that concerned in this situation. You've stated that the parent was taking the video to showcase the rider for an intercollegiate team. They were not showing the...

    My trainer had a serious, serious injury at age 18. She continued training riders and horses---without riding at all---to the upper levels of the equitation and jumping arenas. We're talking Maclay...

    What size saddle are you looking for? From this photo, he looks like a M or a MN tree width. What seat size are you? I saw the video you have posted next to the photos; the saddle you are in is...

    There are a variety of County saddles. I have the Innovation with skid row panels for my 16.1 hh thoroughbred, and it is flocked to fit him perfectly. Interestingly, it also adequately fits my 17.1...

    Just looked at your pics on your blog. Holy Toledo, he looks a LOT like my horse! Both in the face and the conformation. I would try the County Innovation jump saddle in a MN or M tree, skid row...

    Stay away from Voltaire...they wear out really fast. I love my County jump saddle and my Lemke dressage saddle. If you can get ahold of a Lemke jump saddle in the right tree, buy it fast and don't...

    There is a difference between being direct and blunt, and being a screamer, or being cruel. I used to see more of the latter with GM, and now see more of the former. He has changed his teaching a...

    P.S. Your horse is adorable! She does not look like she will be terribly difficult to fit. She will buff up some in that behind the scapula area, but she looks to be a TB or TB cross, am I correct?...

    VXF111, I agree with you, and that's what tipped me off as well. His basic personality is mellow, suddenly he is spooking at EVERYTHING, repeatedly, and trying hard to look at the same things over...

    Generally, Prix de Nations are kind of what we all grew up riding in. Hard as a rock with no knee blocks, no padding, nothing between you and the horse----great to learn to ride in, because you...

    As well, try Liz Hall. She's an eventing trainer at CTETA, has lots of good contacts, and your mare looks like a lovely horse and fabulous jumper! Or try Spring Down to see if they will take...

    Why don't you contact The Yard Equine Rehabilitation Center in Hollister; they might be able to help you place them in good homes.

    These are meant to be there---I have them on both my County Innovation (which was custom-made for a well-known trainer) and my custom-made, non-County dressage saddle. THey are exactly where Kitt...
