    The Toronto scene is where you'll find a lot of the action. Yes Calgary has Spruce, but I think the trainer selection is somewhat better in the Toronto area. Definitely bigger for the hunters than...

    I got one last year and promptly shipped it back. Seems like a fab idea but the drape is all wrong. I think the lightness of the mesh does not allow for it to look quite right. It also did not fit me...

    If you feel done, and if it isn't a good fit for WHATEVER reason, it's very responsible of you to sell. You are important in this, just as much as the horse, and if your comfort level just isn't...

    Really anything goes in the jumpers these days, but for the most part you will see a lot of black and navy. The rings - all of them - at WEF have some pretty insane combinations. Pretty sure I saw...

    I have the Argentas as my show breech and love them dearly. They are a mid rise on me. I'm short waisted and wish they were about a half inch to an inch lower. Fantastic fabric, and fit me well,...

    Definitely get yourself checked out. A good chiropractor can do wonders for this sort of thing. I also second the person who mentioned checking out whether one side of your body is stronger than the...

    This is a little late (sorry for that!) but I tried one of these on at the Tackeria and they definitely run big. I fit nicely into my street size minus one size. They are also super stretchy. Great...

    I always take a tall in boots and half chaps; Parlanti was no different. Not the tallest of them all but I am solidly an 18" lower leg and that's what I got from Parlanti (really translates to 18.2...

    I had one for a few years! Awesome saddle. Great balance! Only regretfully parted with it when I got a horse the shape just would not work with.

    One of mine came up in barn and the suggestion was made to try him. I did, liked him and kept him!

    When I moved from that horse, I had lengthy discussions with the trainers involved (head pro and...

    This poster is SO right! With my own confidence issues the thing that truly helped the most was not jumping a million huge fences but getting out and hacking and galloping around the back 49, jumping...

    I have a P seat Butet (flat seat). It is appreciably flat. I tried the L seat and immediately hated it, the P seat's balance was much better. I can't really tell you whether the older Butets are...

    A few things. I am a lot like you, OP. Self deprecating, confidence issues etc. I have had some great horses and some real jerks. It takes a long time to get over the jerk horses. I was showing 1.10m...

    When I was younger I worked for a farm with a number of young, mouthy stud colts. I was working one on the ground and he went for the boob. Gave it a good chomp. After he let go a million years later...

    Chiming in from the h/j side. You and I have a similar issue - a world class coach who just isn't around that much. Mine sails off to Wellington for four months in winter and then Spruce Meadows and...

    Great stuff!

    I am a dedicated tack cleaner, and take pride in my tack looking great. But my routine is stunningly simple,...

    Great topic!

    I know Hickstead was very difficult as a young horse. He didn't like the open water and liverpools and things like that and was spooky and very hot. Eric Lamaze said he almost gave up...

    Interesting point - that's something. Still, the ones with barns that have amateurs? There are enough that I have no doubt there will be some annoyance.

    Agree with you on the spectator thing...

    Toes in does not equate to pinching with the knee if you're gripping properly and evenly through the calf and thigh. In reality the knee doesn't even particularly need to have much contact at all to...

    Not too sure what you mean by this... They are at least as customizable, if not more so, than the comparable brands. Lots of options and the number of tweaks you can make are limitless.

    Wow... Surprised to see this!
    Welly folks will sure be happy. Ha.
    Should be interesting; imagine this represents some significant lost income for WEF. Last year was packed. Plus all the VIP areas,...

    Indoors has some fairly epic on site partying.

    Beyond that? There's always a barn aisle or camper back alley where something is going on....

    I own one and ridden now in quite a number. My barn has a lot of horses going in them. All are 2010 or newer so can't speak to the older ones really.. But the four year old ones look great and are...

    My barn has a lot of truly communal stuff. Pads, wraps, boots, most grooming supplies, etc. Ditto whips, tack cleaning stuff, even some spurs and bits and such. Blankets are your own, but there is a...

    Yann had a totally fabulous showing but unlikely to make top 4, so rerouted to Spruce next week. I gather Eric is doing the same thing. Cheers to Yann, though! He made Canada proud.
