    My short backed oddly tweaked model goes best in a Reactor Panel saddle, might want to check them out if you're still looking for a solution. It's a very different panel system, horses either love it...

    Those on the list indicating interest are also not going, several from our region 7 had no idea how they got there. I asked at regionals and most of those on the declared list had no idea how they...

    I have read most but not all of this thread - we are "test-driving" several bitless bridles at our place in response to a request USEF received to have them become legal for dressage showing (at what...

    Love it - learned a lot the first time through in 2006 and though I'm an "L" grad with distinction (isn't that fun to say), I plan to retake A-C again this year because of how much better the program...

    Our facility is an Every Time, Every Ride helmet facility - that goes for the judges, L faculty members, trainers, beginners and everyone and its not an issue. We have a group of FEI riders who wear...

    Interesting to see the range of opinions and suggestions - I'm quite surprised to see so many prescriptions for the fix when no one has had a chance to see what the problem looks like... In my...
