    For the bracelet: Look into Heart and Sole Jewelry. I inquired of a number of these artisans and liked this one the best for a number of reasons. Nice lady in South Dakota. I had the bracelet...

    I have to say that most of these sound over-subscribed. Anything "Fox" or "Hill" or "Ridge" has been used in every possible configuration. The only word in your roster with any hope of originality...

    Trust me, the judge does not care about this one. But if you have a particular look that makes you feel "spiffier" as you enter the ring, that might show up in subtle ways that would matter.

    Note my number 17 above; that is addressed there. I have a "consent by Barn Owner" signature added to the form, as I summarized in the list. Very impt.

    Things in my lease form, summarized:

    1. Name, registration number, breed, gender and markings of horse.
    2. Length of the lease term.
    3. Lease fee/rent amount; paid up 100% in front, in...

    I never understand this obsession. What makes anyone think Bernie Traurig cares what people who are just watching his clinic are wearing?

    Good for you! Please just don't ask us what you should wear. Have fun!

    My horse "works" 6 days a week; not all of it is so hard:

    Off Monday
    Tuesday brisk walk around the neighborhood 45 minutes; then15 minutes of light flatwork in the ring.
    Wednesday jumping...

    Why not call the rep before you do anything and ask all of the questions about "care and feeding" and what happens if it does not fit? I might ride in my old tack and wait to do anything until the...

    I bought mine at a real-life tack shop (Tackeria in Wellington) but I am sure they are out there on the Web. I am 5'2" 130 lb., athletic build for a 60 year old woman (or so I like to think), with...

    Yep, the "Champion" fit totally different than the Int'l (which I also have but they tend to hang in the back of the closet). That is what I found so pleasantly surprising. Also, I checked the label...
  12. Real Women Have Curves...and new favorite breeches

    We have lots of threads about breeches and fit here. This is for ladies with more of a classic hourglass figure... I discovered the Romfph Champion Breech this weekend. Fits like a dream, and I did...

    My trainer pulled a potential buyer off her young horse when the guy got on it from the mounting block and--SLAM--down on its back like a ton of bricks. The horse buckled at the knees. She stepped...

    Take this time to do other things with your horse; watch the Buck Brannaman clinic series, read the Ray Hunt books, and then experiment with some natural horsemanship techniques (that could keep you...

    My horse broke his coffin bone while playing in the paddock. He had been the soundest horse in the world, up to that day. Just a freak accident and of course it happened the day after I turned down...

    My Road ID says:

    My name
    Husband's Phone Number (Literally, just like that: "Husband Phone : ________")
    Date of Birth
    Blue Cross number
    Penicillin Allergy
    Organ Donor

    You ought to look at the courses (they should be posted) if you can, before you decide on certain things. Any course with a one-stride in-and-out is going to be set for a horse at anywhere from...

    You are officially my favorite person in the COTH Forum, for this. Even a 3 1/2 year hiatus between posts on this thread was worth waiting for, to hear it articulated in this way.

    If you still have him, it would be nice to cut and save some of his tail hair and make a bracelet. You need about 12-14 inches of clean hair as big around as the diameter of a pencil, for a...

    This! It happened to me years ago; as I exited the ring a well-known lady asked me about buying my horse but this one was my "pet" and I told her I had others for sale, but not this one....and he...

    Ovation Celebrity DX Euro-weave. Front zip. And I'm almost 60, too. You can't wear them out. They wash up great and the waist is at just the right mid-rise point. Love these!

    I think you should wait; you are not in a "horse drought" while you are waiting; sounds like you will always have at least "something" to ride. Plus this is a time for building your career and the...

    P.S. wash the tail and cut a long piece before your beloved horse is put down; much easier than trying to clean it up later. They want a piece about as big around as a pencil and 12-14 inches long,...

    I just had two bracelets made from tail hair, and they are great; they came from Heart and Sole Jewelry; Tina was very responsive to my questions. I can recommend her very highly. I shopped on line...

    First try locally; I polished my saddle up to look clean and shiny, put it out in the daylight nicely perched on a bright white pad, took a picture and sent that by e-mail directly to every trainer...
