    I knew a kid who now events (up to Prelim I think) who started in that saddle. Have always said, if I ever have kids (or for my nieces) I would start them in that saddle.

    What if your horse has chronic itchies and you've tried 3 double doses of equimax before with no results?

    Sorry to bring up an old thread, but I was wondering if the OP chose a school/course and if they are pursuing equine massage as a career now? I am considering this myself and my searches brought up...

    Thanks! Had actually corresponded with the people in the first link about a year ago about a wider cinch, will contact them again :)

    What length of tie strap would be considered "extra long"? In looking around online I am finding 5' and 6' ones, and one that is 6'6".

    Also, the closest I can find to a "wide" cinch is a roper...

    The back cinch that came with the saddle is leather. Might try it with the mohair cinch I have (just need to find a connector strap) or see if I can find some longer latigos.

    I have been pondering one of those for awhile. Currently I have some 1/4" felt that I've cut into shims that I'll stick under the front of the saddle.

    I always make sure that it is set back when I saddle him. You have put into more succinct words what I have not been able to describe very well about the forward portion of the bars.

    I rode tonight for the first time in 2-1/2 weeks (Cody needed some time off and he saw the chiropractor yesterday).

    I don't have a problem with it moving side to side, I will often be riding and have someone tell me my cinch looks loose. Issue seems to be that the saddle will work its way forward some to where it...

  23. Can you change the rigging on a western saddle?

    I like the idea of something along...

    Just saw your testimonial on Facebook, so glad to hear the saddle is working for you!!!

    Did it help using actual trees after narrowing it down with the forms?
