    I checked to see who Atlanta Saddlery uses, and apparently to add a zipper rather than repair one, they suggest sending to Journeymen in Virginia.

    Definitely talk to your rep. Mine strongly encouraged me to ride in it for a while before fully assessing fit, and he wanted me to ride right away and condition it after each ride for a while. My...

    My work schedule is very demanding and I had to think long and hard about whether I could really add it back to my schedule. You do have to be motivated, but it really is more than a motivation...

    In a partial lease situation like you describe, I have paid a flat fee, and I have paid 1/2 of all expenses, and the latter is much more difficult to navigate. I have found it easier for everyone to...

    I went through the saddle search earlier this year, and looked at the County models (along with a number of others like Voltaire, Devocoux, etc . . .), and ended up buying the CWD SE01 (the SE02 was...

    Sinead had a pilot error in her test or it would have scored higher - can't say how it would have compared, but the mistake killed any chance of a great score.

    With most lawsuits, the truth almost always lies somewhere in the middle, and sometimes even when one side or the other is right, it can be hard to actually prove it. So, what comes out in document...

    Complaints are always written a little over the top and to tell a story -- they have to try to paint a picture for the judge (and law clerk!) who will be deciding whether it states a claim that they...

    If you liked the SE01, the Biarritz may feel too deep to you, but you should still try it and see what you think because the feel will also be affected by how it fits you and your horse. If you...

    I have the Mattes shimmable half-pad and it is very helpful - I needed a half an inch of leveling to account for the drop in an older horse's back, and it completely solved the problem and is readily...

    CWD's 3 and 4 flaps are pretty forward - I'm pretty long from hip to knee, and the 3C flap on the SE01 fits me perfectly. The 4 was a little too forward on the horse's shoulder for me. There are a...
