    Google is failing me! (Saddle search...)

    Consultations for charity? :lol:

    New guy is 4 coming 5. Still lots of changing to do. Fitter recommends something adjustable. Synthetic is out. Looking at Hastilow Concept, K&M, Fairfax....

    I think preferences differ according to style and (rider) conformation, and in my past life I did fine showing h/j in a flat-flat saddle (no knee roll even - I was younger then!), but I find that the...

    I like the martingale idea for the trick you describe. I wouldn't hesitate to gear it up for your school - pink bit, neck strap, crop with angry scorpions, etc. But I bet the key for you will be...

    Is the current girth that's causing the gall leather? If not, the one you ordered for your new saddle might do the trick for you. I've found some of the synthetic type girths get a reaction from my...

    I have never been able to find anything that cleans my bits like the dishwasher. Amazing!

    I have a pinto with plenty of white, and a grey TB. Waterless shampoo is a must for the trailer, and for...

    Well, when I evented Woolly Mammoths, we fell off and liked it!

    Sorry, that was too funny.

    One thing I don't think we've raised yet, but that I've heard anecdotally, is that the one fall rule...

    Love this event! Who else is going this year? I just started my 5th month of pregnancy and am very grudgingly sitting out the season. My husband is non horsey and I'm thinking it'd be super if he...

    I have a 17yo semiretired TB who in the last couple of years has had some trouble building and holding topline. Like your horse he doesn't eat alfalfa. I do think there was a nutritional issue -...

    A couple summers ago, while working with some green to eventing horse/rider combos, I decided to do a lesson on the backseat - slip the reins, butt out of the saddle style - and the kids looked at me...
