    I recommend you borrow some from a friend because I think it's such a personal choice. It will help you decided what you like. That's what I did at first.

    You can also buy end-of-season closeouts. And don't limit yourself to just "horsey" brands like Ariat or Kerrits. I have at least one from Ex Officio and a Marmot brand too that I love.

    Jenm - that's a very generous offer, thank you! I may take you up on that :) I probably will try to go to Woodside, but since it would coincide with work, it would likely be a Monday or Tuesday,...

    I knew COTHers would come through with good info on this. I am still laid up frm my injury so not ready to buy/try on vests quite yet. Interesting because before I started researching, i was...

    That looks really cool! As it stands right now, I don't think I would try regular cross country -- but these jumps come down so I would try that :) You might get more people into eventing with...

    jenm, thanks. I do go to San Mateo quite often for business, so Woodside isn't a lot further if I can get a few free hours. End of May wouldn't be too bad, considering I don't seem to have a lot of...

    After a fall where I broke ribs and punctured a lung, I think I'd like to start wearing a safety vest. For reference, I'm 50+ and ride jumpers. I posted over in the H/J forum, but I think I might get...

    Lots of good suggestions here. If you're at home, and you do that scary big jump successfully, then at the end of your lesson, get off your horse and go stand right next to it. Remember how easy it...

    Search eBay for Bobby's or lower end Red Barn bridles. If you're not in a hurry to buy, I think you can find these for right around $120. I love both these brands.

    I will admit, PNWjumper, that yes that comment can upon occasion be the default husband response to all things horsey. I've been in the sport long enough to have seen plenty of those "we're going to...
