Are you letting it rise twice? If you only do one rise, it will be denser.
I'm hearing a debate over classical v competitive turkey cooking :)
Their low rise is still pretty "normal". For me, it falls about an inch under my belly button on the Enduracools. The normal rise goes over my belly button.
I'm 5'6", 30" inseam, and while most...
Keep in mind that you may not be able to tow with a rental vehicle. Check into it before you get too far down the path of finding a trailer.
RV rentals are definitely doable, and come in several...
Smith Worthington has two on major clearance.
FYI - Jerry's also sells empty channel browbands, and I think they're much higher quality, for just a bit more money.
OP - No on the nylon thread. You want beading wire, which you can find wherever you buy the beads.
I've bought mine from here - http://www.firemountaingems.com
When I made my first one, I bought from a local bead store so I could see how everything would look together. If you're just making...
Have you tried an anatomical girth? If everything else is still a good fit, that might do the trick to keep the saddle from sliding forward.
I've usually had the best luck price-wise selling at the beginning of the show season. As a buyer, I've gotten my best eBay bargains in the off-season.
I did that all last season, then finally learned to tie a real one this year! I doubt anyone will look closely enough to notice the difference.
Smith Worthington has a bunch of draft size tack at various price points - http://www.smithworthington.com/index.php?p=catalog&parent=84&pg=1
Also check Bobby's for bridles - they have several...
We've used Renegades routinely on my husband's TWH for 5+ years. http://www.renegadehoofboot.com/
I generally only put front boots on unless it is extremely rocky. He does have a big overstride,...
I have the Herm Sprenger ones from SmartPak that talkofthetown linked to. They're nice and solid.
These guys? http://www.zaludsaddlery.com/
No experience with his saddles, but Martin made me a lovely custom hunt bridle for my hard to fit Arab. The leather is top notch, and the price was very...
Yup. They used to sell tobacco (light brown), and discontinued it. You can try oiling and see what happens :)
I saw some mohair reins online that looked really nice for trail riding, but I have a few questions. Can anyone who has them share your experiences?
1. How do they do when they get wet? Are they...
Good luck! I ended up ordering a Jeffries from the UK. I think it came in about 10 days.
Any chance a cob size would work?
Yup! My guy went through this for about nine months when he was 5-6. I've had him since 2 1/2, and he was pretty easy going, so it was a bit of a surprise to me.
We had a lot of discussions...
Here are a few options:
You can order an Otto Schumacher Munchen in brown or tan. http://www.classicdressage.com/catalog/product.php?CI_ID=470&Item='OS%20Munchen%20Rolled%20Snaffle%20Bridle'
PNWjumper - I had a pair of the FITS Beka breeches, and at least on me, they have a higher waist than Trophy Hunters. I don't think they'll be right for you.
BTW - I love the FITS fullseats, but...
I'm going to echo double-checking your saddle fit. If that's good, I've used bike shorts with the padded seat for long trail rides. They won't get you any style points :), but they're well padded,...
Buy the "On the Levels" app or DVD from USDF. It's well done, you get the views from both C and E, and can see the scores and judges comments as each movement is ridden.
